My kid says the darnedest things.
Driving home from swimming lessons. My youngest pipes up and asks 'Papa? Why is it so unfair?' Bracing myself, thus could go anywhere. 'What is unfair?' 'Why do girls bathing suits have two parts and boys only have one? That is unfair?' Desperate for a way ...

Why Patreon and Kickstarter aren't unethical
An awful lot of hay is being made from this interview: Greg Lisby Interview (Sorry about the long wait, I got my wife to transcribe the thing and do some research.) Claiming that having a relationship between people makes for 'non-obj...

#GamerGate and corruption.
So I was having a discussion with someone on #GamerGate. And it hit me like lightening. What we usually think of when we hear corruption in video games media: Pay to review. A person or company pays a reviewer to write a review with the understanding that t...

#GamerGate and unintended consequences
(my views my own, etc etc etc) I was asked to prove whether #GamerGate was still sexist in a twitter conversation, and in digging around with search terms, I ran across several talking points and other various scripts for use in conversations in #GamerGate....

#GamerGate...from a dev's viewpoint.
Hi there. I write the games that you play. Well, some of you and some of the games. I must say that everything I say here is my opinion and not necessarily that of my employers. And most certainly not all developers. In the interests of full disclosure. I c...

You lost me around the point where you started conflating free speech and lying, and went straight downhill from there. The only thing the right to free speech provides is non-interference from the government. Your speech, including lying, may have repercussions from almost all other quarters. Libel is a thing. Slander as well.

Additionally, experts in gender politics have issues defining what is feminine and masculine, and your attempt to attach your definition to an application is problematic at best, and at worst when delving where experts in the field tread lightly you present as a hack.

Anita's videos are not research pieces backed by thesis. They are opinion and editorial pieces. Nobody is required to give you a platform to criticize or critique. To demand equal time, to demand that she cover both sides when she is a journalist and not an academic researcher is an unenlightened position.

You make excellent points with respect to men as victims in situations of sexual and domestic violence, but they seem to be almost an addendum to the main thrust of the piece where you challenge Miss Sarkeesian to provide a response and action. In no way does she owe you a response to this poorly thought out ramble.

Hey #GamerGate. I'm a terrible writer.
I am a horrible writer. You know this because if you are here, chances are you've read the rest of my blogging bits about #GamerGate. I can come up with a good turn of phrase now and then, but mostly I'm terrible at writing in English. @a_man_in_black isn't...

Adam Baldwin and #GamerGate
I was asked how I could assume that @AdamBaldwin was complicit in the beginnings of #GamerGate. And let me define how #GamerGate started, so folks reading can at least know what page of the book I am on, whether or not they believe it or not. I am pretty su...
