Op Ed

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Misogyny, Sexism, And Why RPS Isn’t Shutting Up. Also on Pastebin with no ads to make a point.
I want to try to break down why people object to the discussion, why there is a concerted effort to deny the need for the discussion, and to explain how my own tangential role in it all has affected me. I want to do this because I want to dispel myths, raise awareness, and encourage others to speak out. For those who think such articles are “preaching to the choir”, were that true, I certainly want that choir to be bolstered, encouraged to sing louder and truer. Sadly it’s not entirely true, as is evidenced by the responses any such article receives on RPS. I want to speak to those people too.

Walker just needs to get on with posting the articles he keeps talking about. It's all these self-indulgent articles that ultimately revolve around him that people are fed up with. RPS seems to have more articles explaining the social issues they're going to talk about than articles actually about those issues.

(E.g. the article expressing concerns about violence at the start of the year, which claimed they would be making it a big issue, but which has resulted in nothing since.)
