I could tell you stories about the voices we’ve lost, the women we’ve scarred, the people we’ve left behind. I want to, but I’m not sure you’d get it. I tweeted earlier today, We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone. And I meant it. I wish there were a way to honor the people our industry has wronged, and a way to visualize the enormity of what we have lost because of it— some representation of the gap between what games are and what they can be, and the pieces of the bridge between that have fallen away.

If you’re not reading every single thing Samantha Allen writes, you’re missing out.

Obviously when I think of Alan Thicke, I want to think of the words “Sweaty” and “Hot” preferably with as much sexual subtext as possible.

It's prolly none of of business, and I'm sorry to intrude if that's true, but what happened to get you so upset at him? I mean, him in particular to get you to react to his praise that way. I mean I see him do a lot of things (swear and curse, disrespect Christ) but a ton of youtubers do, so what's so special about him right now? Please answer this privately.

You are missing something! His praise tweet was directly in reply to me calling him out after he RTed and lol’d at a tweet comparing a historical photo of a lynchmob victim to present day social justice (those tweets are deleted now). He’s also been talking a lot about how it’s okay to casually use slurs and it’s NOT okay to tell anyone not to use those slurs because free speech. I’m not a fan of his, was not ever a friend of his, and he’s just one dude, but I am tired of this creator mentality that every little word that comes out of your lips must be defended and never apologized for and that anyone who’s upset by it must be faking!!! Boo to that. If I am ever being bigoted in some way, please know that I am extremely interested in hearing why and correcting my behavior, because the paranoia about the world getting “too PC” is some decades old bullshit for cranky uncles nobody likes.

Neil’s alright by me.
