I saw this post and it made me think of this thread and the discussion going on in the comic. It just shows that we need feminism to stop this type of disgusting behavior. The fact that so many are supporting it, including women, makes me a little sadder that this is the world we are still living in.


Reported. It apparently also does not meet facebooks "standard for harassment"

Nor "Hate Speech", which I specifically tried.

It seems they smartened up and took it down. That shocked me to. So calling (clearly underage) girls sluts on Facebook and taking their pictures without their permission is not harassment and bullying now? Facebook has to have some low standards.

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.


I'm also disgusted by the people posting names and information of girls there and saying they are sluts. This is the culture we are growing in and even women are shaming their fellow females.

I really loathe that. It takes some high end elitist smuggy shit for someone to think that they're doing a good thing by dictating what people should do and bullying them into submission.

Which is definitely not how the Sinfest forum operates, just so we're all clear.

Meh, I think im doing a dick thing for a selfish reason (I find their opinions/behavior somewhere on the scale of annoying to abhorrent). I'm occasionally surprised i'm not tarred and feathered out of here myself. Clearly none of the new meat has the fortitude to brave this trolls den and slay it. Razz

Bahaha! I guess I have less problems with being shitty against people who are shitty.

So people get a little hostile to the people they don't want hanging around. At least everyone's honest about it.

In convention news...

‘Fake Geek Girl’ Stickers Used To Sexually Harass Women At Convention
http://kotaku.com/do-people-really-think-there-can-be-no-fake-gamer-geek-720399994
Quote:
In an effort to poke fun at the idea of "fake geek girls," O'Malley created sticker "Fake Geek Girl Advisories"—stickers which were distributed at RTX this weekend, a convention held by Rooster Teeth Productions.

The issue began when at least one publicly-unidentified person started to use these stickers in a way that betrayed their original meaning. Maybe they didn't know they were meant to be satirical. Maybe they did, and decided to re-purpose them anyway by approaching unsuspecting women and slapping the stickers on their butts.


It seems when he found out about it, he was pretty straightforward on his blog:


To the Asshat Harassing Women at RTX
http://www.doctornerdlove.com/2013/07/to-the-asshat-harassing-women-at-rtx/
Quote:
Beyond the fact that I don’t want my name associated with behavior, this shit is NOT FUCKING ACCEPTABLE. Cons are supposed to be safe spaces for everybody; shit like this drives women out of fandom.

If you see this guy or ANYONE acting like this, report him to the RTX Guardians IMMEDIATELY.

And for the shitbag who’s been doing this: you’d better hope the Guardians find you before I do.

From the lady gamers that went to RTX, the guy first tried to slap it on their asses and then proceeded to only hand it out because the first lady probably almost punched his face.

Still a shitbag that needs to be punched though.

Yeah, so maybe not as bad as was first reported. But based on the report, I get why the guy was so pissed. Doctor Nerdlove is a pretty fun guy. Besides having pretty good self-help stuff, he's done some excellent work of explaining things in a way I feel some of the more thick-headed might get.

I liked this article:
http://www.doctornerdlove.com/2012/09/we-cant-have-nice-things/
Even though some of the awesomeness in that has nothing to do with him compared to some of his other articles, but that second story where she wrote about her experience was so well written and scary to me to read.

And for a take on race fetishism:

This was on Yahoo news, and I can't quite figure out the authors slant to this: http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/07/dont-let-boobs-ruin-your-sports-dreams/67030/

It seemed like to me, at first, they were being an asshat, but then it just seems like they ramble on with anecdotes. If they made a point, I missed it.

People are now gendering cheese by fat content.

Maybe this is that misandry all those MRA folk talk about. The high fat high cholesterol, will give you heart disease cheese is for men. The healthier reduced fat, less likely to give you heart disease cheese is for women.

MISANDRY!

But why would girls need cheese? Don't they have all the yogurt?
Will ALL the lower-fat cheeses be feminized? Will they turn Edam into Madam?

Does that mean we get to tell the men "this is nacho cheese"?
