Blurred Lines.

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 26, 2014, 7:12 PM


No. This is not going to be some post pulling apart the song nor the critiques of said song by a guy who honestly will be forgotten in 5 years, if he isn't already.

 Instead this will be a post about what I've come to realize about myself through the lens of today. I posted the evidence of what was shown to the Jury in the Ferguson Case. Now I won't get into my personal views on the whole situation and I would ask you not to post yours. Simply put I don't care anymore and it's irrelevant. 

Which is actually the point of this post. I have lost friends I've known for years over just posting evidence of what we know and what we can prove in the Ferguson trial and that,Amongst other things,Broke me.

but that's okay. I realize I spend too much time on the net. that,not unlike Sameul l. Jackson's chatracter in the movie "Changing Lanes",I've become addicted to the drama. So much so that it becomes all I talk about. all I think about All I focus on till I become as reactionary as the people I speak about. till there is no escaping it. and it becomes my life.

The line between what's real and unreal is blurred.  It's depressing me,it's hurting me inside. and I realize I have to stop it cause it's a cycle now.  and it's making me medically speaking,depressed.

 I am unjoining a lot of the groups who I followed only cause I need to stop looking at their posts. and I am going to limit my time online cause this isn't healthy and it's effecting me in bad ways.  I hate how the world is changing for all the wrong reasons now but it's not my place to change it anymore. so I will not talk about socail issues any longer not on here nore in public. I may still discuss some on my youtube channel but I am litteraly done with this stuff. it's too much.

Harassment IS harassment.

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 24, 2014, 9:26 AM


Some Feminist and other activists do have a point and it's one worth addressing. Rape and Death Threats ARE harassment full stop.
one cannot wiggle around that talking point nor should we. And it would be Hypocritical for me to say that it's okay when our side of the coin does it.   This is not okay nor should it ever be considered okay.  I have never ever in my life tried to downplay such things as being acceptable BUT....this must be reciprical or it's useless point to stand on.

Whether you agree with Gamergate or not is irrelevent to this point. Harassment is never okay or cool or anything resembling a civil response to social issues. It is the last resort of cowards or those caught in the moment who are feeling rather then thinking. Some people have little to no impulse control.

That said Gamergaters are having knives sent to their homes,non gamergaters who just happen to on the fence ARE getting rape threats by people who claim to be moral individuals. simply for liking video games and not taking them so damned seriously people have been labeled "racist","sexist" haters of every women everywhere or the reason why women are afraid to walk out in the street at night. when not being called pedophiles (with no evidence), rapists (with no evidence) or rape supporters. And what blows my mind most is that the above are coming from three main sources. Big names in Hollywood,Game developers and by extention journalists,and worst of all Feminists.

The very people who should know what it feels like to be on the other end of those kinds of accusations,the very people who know the social power of those above words...are using them as a knife to place upon the throats of people who even dare to simply ask questions. By no means does this excuse the people on my side doing it right back to them but don't claim to be morally superior and then go on to bully people for not agreeing with you.

And don't come to the table with "you all need to police yourselves" when you yourself are not willing to do it with your own peers. I've been told the world would be a better place without me,that gamers need to be rounded up and killed holocaust style and again not by trolls by "well meaning" feminists.  if you don't want to have to say "well not all feminists are like that" then don't turn around and say all gamers hate women. and for the record I do know some reasonable feminists. I have no major issue with feminists who will at least give an honest consideration of facts. we may not always come to the same conclusion but at least we can have a talk that is on point. so yes I know personally that not all feminists are like that. nor would I ever claim they were.

but if you are for true equality you cannot claim special exemptions for your group. everyone must have the same rights and chances as everyone else or you are not speaking of equality you speaking of superiority. and if it is not right for a man to claim superiority over women (and it's not) then it's not okay to do the reverse. I am sorry that you don't like how equality works but either you work for the good of all or you are working for the good of the one. in which case I ask how are you any better then those you put down?

I don't support rape or death threats. at the same time I am not in charge of my fellow gamers,fellow men, or fellow anything. people will troll and we cannot stop that without stopping the free exchange of ideas. I may not like someone saying the word "nigger" to a person of color. but I'd rather they had the right to say,and face the consequences. then for that the be the start of word policing. just as you cannot control the more extreme feminists among you,who don't care about science because...shirts,I cannot control the people who will call you a cunt just to get a rise out of you. nor should I.

 I will and have fought this were I can. I do my part by not actually posting rape,death or any other threats towards women or anyone. that is all you can ever ask of me. I will stand against rape or death threats,i always have. but you too must do the same or you don't want equality you want exceptionalism.

Anita the Bigot

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 25, 2014, 10:15 AM




I get that people will say she is just speaking the "truth". And statistically speaking she's not wrong on the math end of things. but this ignores why it is anyone,male or Female,does this. It decides that there are no other factors other then "masculenity" .

I am an objectivist. which means I don't deal in speculation I deal in facts. and while I do believe there is some bit of a war on women going on...there is also a war on men that ,for some, is perfectly justified. men have women's brain damaged by testosterone

This post isn't about men vs women (not that I care to fight that fight because I consider everyone to be a person and judge them based on character not on gender,race etc) what makes Anita a bigot isn't so much her Anti-masculanity posturing. That would be bad enough but it's the fact that through this all,Anita never once stopped to give condolences or say she ways sorry this happened to the Families who lost their kids in this latest shoot. And that is what is unforgiveable. That is being so hate filled that you cannot see past your own ideals long enough to acknowledge the true and immediate human suffering.

And for that,above all else,Anita is a bigot.  so tell me supporters...tell me how she is a hero. tell me again how she represents you and your interests. then admit that you too are a bigot and we can move on being open and honest.

An Ode To The Morally Bankrupt.

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 1:17 PM


This was left on my last jounral. I shall spend some time,with my answers being in Italics,to show you why this is not the words of a moral person why what they said to me is so wrong that they cannot claim any moral High ground. Enjoy. the name is not included in this journal because,as horrible of a person as they are,I will not tolerate people going to this persons page and harrassing them.

"Infallible," not infalinable. And I don't think she is, but you are the reason people like her exist. What she does is self-defense against the sexism in the industry and the people who deny that it exists (or, for that matter, people who don't care so long as they get to look at boobs.) Frankly, if you legitimately believe that sending a woman death threats for acknowledging that there are elements of video games that are hurting her and other people of her gender is just as bad as criticizing games, if you think that "social justice warriors" are worse than people who make money off violence against women, if you're so terrified of acknowledging your fandom isn't perfect, if you legitimately think that one person has the power to actively oppress all the poor pitiful wittle gamers, yeah, you're not worth having as a friend. In fact, you're actually terrifying and part of the reason so many women are afraid to go to cons and get involved in the fandoms of things like video games and comics."

Let's break this down. the ending being the worst part to all this for reasons I will detail at the bottom.


"Infallible," not infalinable. And I don't think she is, but you are the reason people like her exist."
this seems to be a "I don't always agree with her but" fallacy trying to make it seem as if they are rational thinkers and thus
not the moral freedom from thought types who follow and absorb the ideals perfectly. now let's take on their second premise that I am, "but you are the reason people like her exist."   Please show me where I am a problem to girls or women online. Some of my best friends are girl gamers but I only ever call them gamers because their gender means nothing to me. Gaming used to be about having fun and just playing mindless games but you're so far up your own ass that you think games actually effect people despite all the science that proves you wrong. if I play with people from different races,nationalites,sex and sexual orientation then how am I hurting anyone with my gaming? (this,much like my actual talking points,is never addressed I am just evil and that's that.)


What she does is self-defense against the sexism in the industry and the people who deny that it exists (or, for that matter, people who don't care so long as they get to look at boobs.)
                                        what it gods name are you talking about? the "industry" isn't attacking Anita in the slightest. infact they are tearing eachother a part over percieved sexism :Assasins creed Unity mess
she's recieving industry awards so again your premise here is just plain wrong: www.joystiq.com/2014/02…
as some in the industry list her as an inspiration. Phil Fish (makers of Fez) called her a Hero as has Cliff Blazinski. so no the industry isn't out to get Anita. Are Games sexist? well that's another problem you seem less wanting to look into or you might have studied this rather then Anita's videos... are video games sexist??
this video I just posted infact Anita has not refuted the facts only mocked it which isn't an argument. Lastly your comment above is disrespectful to lesbien,transgendered and gay gamers who love video games for the same reason. my Fiancee infact loves games with boob physics so it's not just for the male "gaze" as some feminist try to put it. so you are actually being a bigot here.

Frankly, if you legitimately believe that sending a woman death threats for acknowledging that there are elements of video games that are hurting her and other people of her gender is just as bad as criticizing games,
show me Anita and many others being "hurt" by video games and then we'll have that conversation. you and Anita have done nothing to prove this premise so I cannot give this to you. please take the time to prove your concepts then we can have this talk.

if you think that "social justice warriors" are worse than people who make money off violence against women,
Even if this were true (because many more men are hurt in these games then women.) this a weak argument and is an appeal to emotions. it's like saying that you are opposed to abortion at any stage of conception because cells are a fully formed thinking,breathing baby.  it's a tactic that's used to stop critical thought and instead get you emotional. not unlike what Anita does in her videos. and you've only shown me that you've fallen for it hook line and sinker. and in one statement proven points against your postion as moral person. (something you'll drive home in a moment.) further more the violence on screen no matter the gender has done what? made men (and only men) more violent towards women (and only women because we don't factor men into our pitty party here.) I am afraid you'll have to reach really hard to pull out a working model of this behavior out of your own ass:  www.gamespot.com/articl…
www.apa.org/pubs/journa…
psycnet.apa.org/psycinf…
www.rockpapershotgun.co…
mynintendonews.com/2013…
if video games can't make us more aggressive,or violent towards each other then the next argument is it makes us more objectify women. this too is false as not even porn can do that for us as seen here: 
the point being that I have real science by actual experts I can name. I don't need soft langague like "scientists have found.","studies show...", or "it's been proven." I actually prove my points which disprove pretty much all you've said there so far.

if you're so terrified of acknowledging your fandom isn't perfect,
when did I say it was please cite this for me. oh right you don't like to cite facts unlike me. but gaming doesn't need to be perfect it just needs to be entertianing because that's what it is. entertianment. and if it cannot make us more violent against women,if it can't make us more mysogynistic then what more do you have to use against it,aside from ad hock or strawmen attacks. I deal in facts not emotions you sadly seem to be unable to do the first.

if you legitimately think that one person has the power to actively oppress all the poor pitiful wittle gamers, yeah, you're not worth having as a friend.
This is a strawman and has nothing to do with the topic at hand. you just threw your fellow girl and women gamers,programers,modelers and voice actresses under the bus. people are having their jobs threatened over making video games. others are getting threats of rape or death from your side. that is when not being suddenly accussed of rape themselves. all the while claiming that they are the victims. I told you in my replies that I don't condone nore participate in harrasment of either side. I made it clear in my last journal that NOTHING I do in this movement would ever consitute herassment of anyone,women included. but this isn't what makes you the most disgusting human being I have ever met. no it's what you said last....


In fact, you're actually terrifying and part of the reason so many women are afraid to go to cons and get involved in the fandoms of things like video games and comics.

 I am a survivor of 5 years of phsycial,mental,and sexual abuse by a woman who tried to kill me not once but twice while writting about thoughts of a third attempt. I have actual PTSD that I am only just now getting around to dealing with as it's crippling my ability to do normal every day activities. some of the abuse happened in front of our infant son and I thank my lucky stars everyday that he wasn't old enough to remember seeing mommy try to stab daddy with a knife.  so please explain to me how I am "Terrifying" I am sure the audience would love to hear this feat of mental gymnastics because for you to say that to me an actual victim of domestic violence and rape.....I'd love to see you explain how you are any better then the strawman you made of me. you sicken me and are morally bankrupt person who thinks they are this baston of higher morals. 

Well if this is your idea of morality then you can stick it back where you have your head right now. straight up your own ass.
