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.

Yeah! Those chicks just need thicker skins! I mean, I've never been the target of that level of hatred because, hey, I'm a privileged dude on the internet (HIGH FIVE BRO!). But that just must mean I've got the thickest skin EVER. See, I've got this whole feminism thing figured out. I mean, a bunch of dudes on the internet told me about it, and let's be honest is there a better way to learn about feminism? Game, set, match! There's NO WAY! In fact I'm SO sure I know what it's like that I'll explain it to you! Thank god you all have me!
