The hate campaign against Anita Sarkeesian was shameful, nobody should be subjected to sort of harassment she was. She was threatened with violence and rape.

That 'game' is a disgrace Frans, and shame on you for linking to it.

I posted this link on FB. My F's wife (we have a strained relationship) posted: 'Down with fiminism [sic] it is wrong and distructive [sic]'

I pointed out (nicely) in my reply that it's because of feminism women can divorce husbands (among other things). Which she did after she met my dad...

Lots of low points - but a a teensy bit reassuring that mainstream media (albeit an somewhat intellectual one) finds the sexism in itself noteworthy. Well done NSM grin
