Also another helpful roundup, and also, and also a personal favorite.

From that first link: "Also remember: neither Anita Sarkeesian nor Zoe Quinn are journalists. Let’s all remember that Nathan Grayson is the only actual journalist involved here, so even if the claims against him were true - they’re not - they’re for some reason still focusing on Zoe and Anita. Definitely not misogyny tho."

The United States had gone to war declaring it must destroy an active weapons of mass destruction program. Instead, American troops gradually found and ultimately suffered from the remnants of long-abandoned programs, built in close collaboration with the West […]
The American government withheld word about its discoveries even from troops it sent into harm’s way and from military doctors. The government’s secrecy, victims and participants said, prevented troops in some of the war’s most dangerous jobs from receiving proper medical care and official recognition of their wounds.

Imagine a system of college education supported by high and growing government spending on elite private universities that mainly educate children of the wealthy and upper-middle class, and low and declining government spending on public universities that educate large numbers of children from the working class and the poor.

You can stop imagining. That’s the American system right now.

Government subsidies to elite private universities take the form of tax deductions for people who make charitable contributions to them. In economic terms a tax deduction is the same as government spending. It has to be made up by other taxpayers.

Hey, I figured everyone could use some bad news for a change.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

Not only is this a horrible demonstration of misogyny. But how fucking desperate are we to protect guns that we refuse to take action when someone has threatened a mass shooting? How many more of those do we have to have in this country before we take them seriously? I AM SO LIVID.

In which the police openly side with the terrorists against the feminist.

In the future, if anyone needs a crash course in why All Cops Are Bastards, 2014 will serve as an exemplary year.
