"Ian, you shouldn't wear your heart on your sleeve."
"Stop telling everyone communications can save the world. No one believes that."
"Keep the crisis quiet."
To them I now say, "Read this. Shut up."

I really didn't want to write about this whole controversy because part of me hoped that I was just misreading it. Surely no one REALLY thought that death threats were an "understandable" response to criticism, right?
I was wrong. In posts made by people I respect. People like and other well known figures, all avid gamers or game developers, came out because they needed to state the obvious: *Sexism isn't ok.*
The comments quickly devolved into the very same hatred they were fighting against, and some game developers actually left their industry because of the hatred they received for saying diversity was ok.
So here I am, stating the obvious again. Because I am a Gamer. I love the internet and all things nerdy. I'm not "defending" Anita. I'm defending the pass time I enjoy, the culture I cherish. I'm fighting for my home, and I'm asking you to join me.
