I just looked it up, his accuser came forward and confessed that she had made the whole thing up, and the kickstarter was for making a documentary about his story. Now that it has ended, he's actually raised 47,000 of the 40,000 he wanted. So that picture that Delakando posted is out-of-date and disingenuous.


Yeah, I was gonna say something about Kickstarter being less than five years old, but that info is even better.

Girafflable!

There is a giraffe hotel where they get to come visit you.

Lookit the pictures! They just come grab things off the dining table!


I like that giraffes are these tall, graceful creatures - but they make the sound of a sheep. And their tongues are black.


i have just made a bucket list explicitly for the purpose of putting staying at this place on it.

also, this[url] is a baby rhino gamboling at the san diego wild animal park. i have seen them doing this, and it is utterly adorable.

Hahaha ok, did Anita Sarkeesian become a target for people who want to pretend that men get the short end of the stick in society

Anita Sarkeesian became the Gaming Hitler of this generation just for wanting to talk about sexism. Personally I like how easy it is to spot people whom I don't want to ever be friends with, all I have to do is drop the name.

Gaming Hitler?

I think it's totally worth pointing out that gamer culture is riddled with misogyny.

and yet I'm still annoyed with her

I would genuinely like to know why people consider her annoying or awful. I know little of her outside of having watched some of her videos, which I consider to be well thought out and respectfully articulated ó I mean, the one I just posted pretty much hits the nail on the head about a specific trope in gaming and the full extent of its implications (which definitely make it worth talking about) and she sure as fuck ain't social justice warrior nailgunning angry check yo privilege rhetoric at my face, so I am not aware of where the criticism comes from.

Can i get the scoop on that?

well, she's a feminist who talks about feminist stuff. so, you know.

and apparently she manages to make money being a feminist, which is even more awful.


not that i actually no anything about the actual situation, but that doesn't seem to have stopped any of the people attacking her.

The only thing I've disliked about her (and I guess there could be room for disagreement) was her depicting the Power Puff Girls as having an episode with a straw feminist.

On the one hand, yes, that character was sort of a straw feminist. On the other hand, the PPGs show real feminism later in the episode when they're sending her to jail.

Detailed version:
A female bank robber convinces the girls that they should let her continue to rob banks because she's female and it's a male dominated society. Her weapon is shaped like the Venus symbol and she demands the money in Susan B. Anthony dollars.

The girls, being young and impressionable, believe that she's right and that they should let her do her thing because women get the short end of the stick in society.

The girls go on to be just plain rude to any male characters for a good part of the episode in a way that makes it seem like the creators are belittling feminist problems.

BUT! What Ms. Sarkeesian leaves out is that, later in the episode, the girls figure out that the bank robber is doing feminism wrong. They give her a lecture about what real feminism is while they're beating her up to send her to jail. (They include Susan B. Anthony facts to drive the point home, since she had wanted only Susan B. Anthony dollars.)

So I mean, I guess Ms. Sarkeesian doesn't do the proper research sometimes, but otherwise I really like what she does. I think her heart is definitely in the right place.

There have been a few moments where I tilted my head to the side and went "hm... maybe not." but overall she's so respectful about what she's saying that I just don't understand this seething hatred some people have for her.

AND, after having watched a lot of her videos, I can honestly say I agree with her way more than I disagree, so it's hard to get bent out of shape over some relatively small things when the core of her message is so important.
