She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home
On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

once one of my best friends told me that i was wearing too much makeup (i was wearing lip gloss and mascara) and told me that i should have a look that’s more like my other friend (who wears a full face of makeup every day) as she looks more natural and that moment made me realize that men truly do not understand what makeup looks like

I once had demons who manifested into an actual person and made me believe I was the epitome of soft, warm, smelly shit. I soon realized that I saw that image inside myself and tried to pull myself together after all the scraps I've left behind that the people I loved had to deal with. I'm not saying I love myself, but I see a decent person within this body that has been through enough wear and tear to come to a conclusion that everyone in America and probably other parts of the world deal with this same problem. Yeah, the evolution of human nature made a huge gap and some people are cruel whereas some people aren't, but shit, we really have no clue what we are doing. Sometimes I break down crying because I don't want to grow up, but...
