Geek Fandom’s Hairball of Hatred http://thebea.st/1tOUoH1
Pop culture critic Anita Sarkeesian’s latest video was met with death and rape threats. The men who defended her were accused of “white knighting.” Nobody wins.

My latest for +The Daily Beast on Zelda Williams' digital abuse & its overall ubiquity. 
Robin Williams’s daughter left Twitter after receiving cruel messages and photos from other users. Her case is high profile, but this kind of abuse happens every day online—and no one is doing anything about it.

My Watch_Dogs review
Veins pulsating with data, through a network keeping the body of information alive. Everything is connected. This is Watch_Dogs

Me in +The Daily Beast talking #miiquality & unconsidered bigotry in games.
Nintendo won’t allow same-sex relationships in its life simulator, despite outrage from fans.

After criticizing the new ‘Teen Titans’ cover, journalist Janelle Asselin was name-called and threatened with rape. The worst part? No one is surprised.

Me in Mens Health (ZA) on why men should care about everyday sexism.
Maybe we, as men, don’t know everything; maybe you don’t know what it’s like being a woman in a world that you know benefits men just because you’re a man.

Girls Love Science. We Tell Them Not To. http://thebea.st/1r5Xq9p
A recent article argued that ‘biology and nature sway females away from science.’ Not so fast.

Always Sometimes Monsters is ugly on every level and the parts that attempt beauty are like diamonds held by mud-stained hands.

My latest for The Daily Beast on abortion, shaming and stigma. 
When a U.K. woman announced her plan to get an abortion in pursuit of a stint on ‘Big Brother,’ the Twitterverse was horrified—even pro-choicers. So can you be selectively pro-choice?

I criticised unethical use of tools everyone uses unthinkingly. Just because it's not illegal doesn't mean it's not moral.
Smartphones have turned us into creeps—snapping strangers’ photos, tweeting about the person next to us on the train. It’s time to check ourselves.
