"Freedom and equality are not achieved when a practice crosses over to being acceptable. Instead, such shifts strengthen the line between what is considered good, healthy, and normal and what remains bad, unhealthy, stigmatized, and criminalized. The line moves to accommodate a few more people, who society suddenly approves of, correcting the system and keeping it in place."

This. This. This. Content warning for sure.
A large portion of the Internet has dismissed Emma Sulkowicz’s new project. What they don’t seem to understand is that the video isn’t the art piece. They are .

I guess I would think that if a pile of money showed up earmarked for only this project, they'd be able to dedicate people to the task.

Yeah, this story.  Completely disproportionate response that should obviously be overturned, but there is a certain element of Punk romance here that is so compelling.  Rock and roll should forever get you in trouble with the Man, or you're not doing it right, right?

We all agree, past events can affect the present. And present events affect the future. But few would credibly argue that future events can affect the past.

Gaming and sexism, with a happy ending! The only part my Feminist Critique Brain balks at is that it takes a man to mediate the problem to another man. Sure, he was the Moderator. Sure, he was ultimately kick-ass helpful. And I don't begrudge a word he said; he did right. But that he needed to, and that she couldn't and/or didn't and wanted/needed to still remains. I will always cheer when someone stands up for the disenfranchised of the world, but I will also always hold my breath and bend an ear to hear if the voiceless will at last speak on their own behalf. Which she did, after the fact by documenting and sharing her experience; a step in the right direction. Battle on friends, vanquish ignorance and over-ripe cultural brutishness!

It's a worthy thing to wish for.  I'm just thrilled that a developer who worked on the game directly stepped in and let the community know in no uncertain terms, and without hestitation, that this completely common behavior is unacceptable.  I cannot sufficiently stress how much this is needed in the industry, how rare it is.  Hats off.
