It’s strange how these people suddenly go full body-shaming and resort to just hurling insults at someone when said person disagrees with them. Let’s go over what Jon has recently said on twitter. First Tim Schafer posts an Anita Sarkeesian video, stating that everyone should watch it. Jon calls him out on it, makes jabs at Anita’s refusal to debate her points, and states that both genders are objectified in gaming.
Jon then goes on to make several posts where he states that he supports women, and that he loves games where women kick ass (which he argues that there are plenty of). I would link to the posts in question, however they’ve mostly been deleted by now. Here is a screen taken by tumblr user bmann14k though.
So tumblr is throwing a shitfit over Jon saying that men are objectified in gaming too. Whether you agree with this or not is not the issue. Tumblr is absolutely demonizing Jon, calling him fat and a ‘neckbeard’ and all kinds of shit, shown above. If you disagree with someone’s opinion… you don’t have to throw a goddamn tantrum and shout insults over the internet. People are acting like he’s committed a fucking crime, for saying that simple phrase.
You celebrities are not going to be perfect little angels for you. They are not going to believe everything that you do, they’re not going to think the same words you think are bad to be bad also. Get this through your heads. Jon never said that women weren’t objectified in gaming. He just said that men were objectified as well. If you agree or disagree, that’s your choice, but please act like a fucking adult and don’t act like someone is terrible just because they think differently than you.
I’m still baffled that the post saying “kill jontron” is then tagged as #death threat
~VanellopeThey tagged it as #rude - too. -mod ibuki
anyways this makes me LOVE jontron even more. I wanna just hug you man for dealing with that shit.

Under scrutiny from people asking her to show pictures of the supposed ‘sexual harassment’ Anita received, she responds with this. This is clearly a fake.
- The last tweet is listed as 12 seconds ago
- She is not logged in
- These tweets and the account are now deleted dispute how quickly she seemed to know this guy was posting
- Default profile picture
- What kind of person harasses somebody like that under their real name? You would have to be really dumb to do that.
- She didn’t call the police or even remotley open in investigation dispite this person ‘supposedly’ knowing her parents address.
This is absolutly inexcusable, and needs to be talked about.
i think it’s also important to note that she posted this immediately after asking for donations. not shady at all.
No, here’s what’s important.
- Anita had to believe her own feminist fan base was dumb as fuck.
- And she had to be right.
Once you grasp those two things all of this suddenly feels much much more frightening.
LOOK AT HOW WELL THIS IS SOURCED
That aside I need to double check this because I can almost guarentee this is a statistic that has been taken out of context and spun, I WILL REPORT BACK WITH THE NEWS
Also twice the non reciprocal means that women fight back to their abusers and men don’t
It doesn’t mean that women are committing twice the amount of harm
Here, have 286 sources. Happy now?
No? Have 1700 then.
1700 sources. Wow.
"Power of the Glove" is Exactly What You Think It’s About
Okay, maybe it’s not. Maybe you think “Power of the Glove” is a documentary about foppish magicians. It’s not. It’s about the greatest peripheral known to man. A blurb from the project’s Kickstarter page:
The Power Glove was a 1989 Nintendo controller that promised to forever change the way humankind interacted with technology. Originally released by Mattel, the Power Glove was the first mass-marketed, gesture-based video game controller, and its hype was immense.
Immediately after its release, however, gamers were disappointed by the Power Glove, and critics panned it as a worthless gimmick. Yet unlike many gimmicks and critical failures of the past, the Power Glove has not been simply swept under the rug. Over two decades after its release, the Power Glove continues to resonate with video gaming and technology fans, becoming the focus of art pieces, songs, videos, hacking projects, and other forms of cultural repurposing.
The Power of Glove is the story behind the legend and legacy of the Power Glove.
The story of the Power Glove is certainly one that needs to be told, and at the team making it is asking for a measly 15k to make the project a reality.
There’s only seven days to go for the project to reach it’s goal. Toss them a few bucks if you can and support video game documentaries, will ya? [❤]
It sucks that Anita Sarkeesian is more influential than any of these women in the game industry.
oh damn, ayako saso is part of the street fighter EX music team

I make games for the blind (I’ve come up with a concept for my second title) and Anita just pisses me the hell off. Ignoring all of these amazing people for her fembullshit.
Fun fact: Did you know that the designer of Suikoden I, II and IV was a woman? She was also an artist for the first title! Cool beans.
