Re: What Can Men Do? « Jacob Kaplan-Moss
"All in all, Jeff does a great job demonstrating what men should never do but a rather poor job showing what we should. We should be listening to what women and other marginalized people have said and written, even when it’s uncomfortable for us. We should be boosting their signal, instead of our egos. That’s how we make things better."

Misogynist conversations women have all the time | Penelope Trunk Careers
"Maybe you have not said all of these phrases, but you have said one of these, and you need to own up to it. Because all the #metoos of the world are not going to change things without you taking personal responsibility for the ways you put down other women."

Evidence of the anti-Clinton machine
Fox News has spent the first two years of Trump’s presidency whining about Hillary Clinton and trying to paint her as the villain.

Makes you wonder where some of the DSA folks get their news from…

Gamers and managers vs workers: the impossible (and gendered) standards imposed on game developers | Overland literary journal
There’s something here that often confuses outsiders. Why is it that fans, those most-passionate consumers of a product and who identify with the product on some deeply personal level, are often the ones who are most hateful and spiteful towards those individuals who create the thing they love? Often this gets explained away as an overly zealous and protective passion, but the answer is both more insidious and more straightforward: fans are not loyal to workers; fans are loyal to brands. This is especially true of gamers, that young and predominately male demographic explicitly and deliberately cultivated by videogame publishers throughout the 90s to identify strongly enough with a range of brands, to constantly invest money in new titles and hardware. The gamer’s allegiance is to ArenaNet, not the workers at ArenaNet who do the creative labour. Gamers are allies to corporations.

At the same time, the managerial class of the games industry has long seen the creative workers that actually produce games as disposable and easily replaceable. ‘A passion for games’ is held up as a primary requirement for working in the videogame industry, and those who have been brought up through the gamer identity are offered low wages and demanded to do unpaid overtime in return for so generously being given the opportunity to work in the industry.

Sarah Ditum ‏Konto zweryfikowane @sarahditum: This is so very wrong. Male default is embedded in our society and language: if you say "person", listeners assume "men"...
Deep down, I really think these people see femaleness as an embarrassing deformity that society can, at best, discreetly accommodate and politely ignore. There's no other explanation for the belief that sexism will be solved by pretending sex isn't real.

Can Changing How You Sound Help You Find Your Voice? : Shots - Health News : NPR
That's the goal of all this hard work: for women like White and Hanna to find their voices, so the world can stop focusing on how they sound and pay attention to what they're saying.

The Rage of the Incels | The New Yorker
We can’t redistribute women’s bodies as if they are a natural resource; they are the bodies we live in. We can redistribute the value we apportion to one another—something that the incels demand from others but refuse to do themselves. I still think about Bette telling me, in 2013, how being lonely can make your brain feel like it’s under attack.
