After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.



The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

And the responses have begun.  The male gamers are joking about a woman’s fear of an anonymous person who said he would write his manifesto in her spilled blood—as if it were no big deal.  How much more vile can you get, guys?   And how scary?  I wouldn’t show up, with this as my welcome card and the state saying they would deploy no serious protective movements.

One of these days one of these ha-ha-just-a-joke guys is going to make good on his jokes while wearing a metal cup to protect his goodies, and all of the rest of the gamer nutballs are going to say, “We didn’t know he was for realz.” 

Guess what, assclowns?  I don’t want Anita Sarkeesian to take that chance.  I don’t want any woman to take that chance.  I want women to be safe so they can get your hostile, threatening, abusive asses thrown into jail.
