An email sent to Utah State University officials threatens to terrorize the school with a deadly shooting over a talk to be delivered by feminist critic and Tropes vs. Women in Video Games creator Anita Sarkeesian, Polygon confirmed with the school’s Center for Women and Gender Studies.
What makes this even worse is the terrorist threat references the École Polytechnique Massacre in an aspirational way:
"If you do not cancel her talk, a Montreal Massacre style attack will be carried out against the attendees, as well as students and staff at the nearby Women’s Center," the message reads. "I have at my disposal a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs."
But what if this was an isolated ev-Let me stop you right there:
Game developer Brianna Wu, head of development at Boston-based Giant Spacekat, fled her home after receiving a series of specific, violent threats directed at her and her family on Twitter last night. Police confirmed they are actively investigating the threats.
Here’s the most tragic irony about all of this: jumping straight to threats of violence is simply a poor coping skill fostered by the toxic masculinity that feminists like Anita Sarkeesian have been criticizing all along.
This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.
If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.

i think of everything we learn without even noticing
