Man, for all of the claims that ladyfolks are the emotional and irrational gender, nothing hits the heights of hysteria like a pissed off dudebro.
The sad part is, of course, pissing off a dudebro could end badly for a lady.
I mean, we could get brutally assaulted for breaking up with them (Trigger Warning for the link, it leads to her medical fund and has a photo of the damage)
We could get the Internet Hate Machine to ran down fury because a salty-ass ex was feeling vengeful.
We could even be driven out of our homes for fear of being physically hurt.
And those are just the most RECENT stories of men acting like the house is burning down at the slightest hint of life’s disappointments. War Machine, I’d say there’s more fish in the sea, but you’re too damned off your nut that I wouldn’t wish my worst enemy on you. Dude who is not longer dating Zoe Quinn, thanks for making it clear why no one should ever date you again. And the horde of whiny gamers trying to intimidate Anita Sarkessian into not talking about your precious video games, grow the hell up. These women have done waaay less harm to you than you have done to them, and for what? Daring to no longer be your possession? Breaking your heart? Pointing out that *gasp* your favorite form of media has a sexism problem (and by the way, guys, you’re doing a more bang up job in proving that than Anita ever could if she was pumping out an episode a week)?
There is absolutely nothing they have done to deserve even a little bit of the abuse they have to put up with. And it’s sexist. Case in point, where’s the hate conga line for the reviewers Zoe supposedly fucked for positive reviews? Doesn’t it take two to tango? Aren’t they just as corrupt and awful as you think she is? Shouldn’t they be suffering in the exact same way?
…yeah, I thought so.
Either women are weak little things to be put in our places or our genitals are so powerful that they can stir even the toughest man into a frenzy. Fucking pick one and stick with it.
Either women are breathing sex dolls there solely for your enjoyment on a screen or actual people with actual opinions who just might disagree with you from time to time. Fucking pick one.
Either video games are a valid form of art and storytelling (which can be critiqued like every other art form), or they’re toys for the immature who want more bloodshed and jiggling titties. Fucking pick one.
Because you can’t have this shit both ways.
