Links of Interest

Since we’re quite capable of losing hours to the internet if we’re not careful, we do come across some thoughtful discussion that are both relevant to Fangs and fire up the brain cells; here are some links of the past few weeks that have caught our interest

Please feel free to share your own links in the comments

This week we have a series of links about the vileness that is Game Gate, the misogyny that permeates it and the extreme lengths its going to.

A good summary for anyone who hasn’t been keeping up with this carnage

And another highlight just how horrendous this whole “debate” is.

This excellent examination shows just how little video game journalists actually talk about sexism - the petulant misogynists would have you believe it’s all consuming

And this is the lengths they will go to. This is nothing short of terrorism.

These two articles are both important as they have the words of two of the women who have been targeting - Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian. Another prominent target is Zoe Quinn

We do not know the various writer’s histories nor can we guarantee that other posts on these sites won’t be problematic - but these posts definitely whetted our interest.
