Death threats drive Anita Sarkeesian from her home »
Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.

'_' …I'm sorry. But why is it wrong for me to slaughter people of the human race again?
Are you fucking kidding me!? This shit is still going on!? I’ve been following her and her discussion on Women in Video Games series for a while now and I think she makes a lot of valid opinionated points. The fact that these male gamers can’t fucking take it just proves how shallow and afraid of what she has to say. That a woman with strong opinions in this industry that is dominated by men is pointing out how truly fucked up this industry, and world, is that they felt the need to attack and force her out of her own home in order to feel superior. This is not the first time she has been attacked in any way, shape, or form and frankly, it’s fucking disgusting and pathetic these “men” need to assert their dominance on someone who is just
VOICING HER FUCKING OPINION AND TRYING TO OPEN THE EYES OF GAMERS AND WOMEN EVERYWHERE.
