Hey staff, Can you explain why you’re not blocking posts of nude celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence when it’s clear that those pictures were stolen and breach privacy?  Do you think that’s part of allowing “artistic freedom” or something?

Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a YouTube video series examining gender tropes in video games. The series was financed via crowdfunding, and acquired notoriety when its Kickstarter campaign triggered a wave of sexist harassment against Sarkeesian.

When Sarkeesian raised nearly $160,000 using Kickstarter, there was an immediate backlash from members of the gaming and internet communities. Commenters on her YouTube and Facebook pages wrote hateful comments, threats of violence, and death threats.

A game that appeared on popular Flash game website Newgrounds allowed players to virtually assault Sarkeesian by clicking on her face, effectively “beating her up.” As players continued to click the picture, scars, bruises, and lacerations would appear on a photograph of Sarkeesian,

On August 26th, Sarkeesian received a series of graphic threats [trigger warning: rape, violence, sexist slurs] as seen here.

Where television is fantastic, and is way ahead of film, is it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women so much, I experienced it in playing Anne Boleyn as well. [x]

Two people shot dead at Work and Income in Ashburton - National - NZ Herald News ⇢

The gunman was John Tully, a homeless man who was featured in the Ashburton newspaper two weeks ago

John Tully was shaking the frost from his tent fly at 11.30am. It’s a danger of sleeping in the Ashburton riverbed. Mr Tully would like a house - a State house - any house - to live in, and took his tent and bike to a Housing New Zealand property in Racecourse Road yesterday. It appeared empty, though according to Mr Tully, it is listed as being tenanted.

"I want somewhere to live. I can’t see why I can’t move in here when no-one is living here."

Mr Tully was living in Marlborough but came home to Ashburton to die “to be buried next to my father”. In the meantime, he wants somewhere to live and has been around the social agencies. He has also contacted NZ First leader Winston Peters.

Mr Tully washes in the Ashburton River and wants somewhere “warm and cosy”.

Nobody wants to politicise people’s murders, but there appears (so far) to be a link between the lack of government support and this crime. After years of cut-backs to public housing and social security, it’s virtually impossible not to draw links and have it as a political issue.

If that turns out to be the case, then, sadly, the victims’ families are going to have this story in the media for a long time to come.

I get that it’s an election year, and this kind of event could easily be exploited by politicians but shooting up a government agency is a political act. And I don’t understand how not talking about the society we live in which drives a person to do this helps anyone. It’s an absolute tragedy that some people have lost their lives just by being at work, but we need to examine why someone felt that shooting up a WINZ office was the only way to be heard, if we want to stop it from happening again. And I’d be willing to be all the money I have that it doesn’t come from higher security or metal detectors but treating people who are homeless or beneficiaries like they’re human beings who deserve food in their bellies and a roof over their head.
