She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

augh nothing warms my heart quite like dads with babies. I know it’s ridiculous to praise dudes for doing what moms do all day every day without praise (go moms, you rock!) but it’s just unfortunate that so many people don’t have good dads who love them and spend time with them. Nobody should get to ‘pass’ on parenthood after you’ve created and birthed a little human. You had the chance to abort or put the baby up for adoption but once you’re in it, you better be all in.

I’m sure we all have these— books you read for the first time when you were 12 and you hold a fondness for them, but you’d never be caught dead reading them in public. I have SO many of these! When I’m riding the bus or reading before work or at the university, I love to kill time with these…

Please follow my bookblr! It will include book reviews/promotions, discussions about literature, simplified lessons about books/literature and good company!
