Good men should tell trolls harassment’s not cool: Jay Smooth

- June 15th, 2012

Good men need to speak up when misogynists run rampant, says radio host and video blogger Jay Smooth on the heels the threats and harassment on Anita Sarkeesian’s Kickstarter pitch for an exploration of gender tropes in video games.

There’s lots of good stuff in here, but my favourite line has to be:

When you bully and harass a woman for speaking her mind all you do is show us is that you’re afraid of that woman’s voice and you don’t think you can beat her intellectually without using a cheat code.
