"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

It was just going to be a sketch and then my hand slipped

oh my actual god yes yes yes

It’s much more sinister and terrifying with the same female pronouns when you consider that lesbian and bisexual women have actually been burned to death by the church. It adds another chilling layer to this song.

Charles Martinet’s website is incredible.

the website of an actor who has not needed to seek work or promote himself in any way since the mid-90s

browsing through this website made me face the reality that newer generations never had the opportunity to catch the web during this awkward period of incubation where nobody really knew how to build a website and just haphazardly banged on the keyboard until they made code that kinda resembled HTML 2.0 and put it online without a second thought
