The situation is just intolerable. 
There have been a lot of really insightful write-ups recently. A broader perspective—and I almost cringe to say—catch-all by Molly Crabapple left me gasping for breath. This write up, by Elizabeth Sampat giving her thoughts on an industry that’s very dear to me, delivered the final blow and left me in tears.
It’s really rare that I create from a place of grief. It’s just not how I operate. But it’s largely what I have openly felt for the last few days, and reflecting on it, it’s been there for far longer.
This quote from Elizabeth’s piece— “We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone.”— struck a very literal chord in me.
So yeah, here it is. A place just for me where I can light a candle and remember all of the wonderful people I probably will never get the chance to meet.  Folks that have been driven away by these horrible fucks that have the audacity to think they know what gaming and community is about.
en memoriam.

I have never, in my life, been ashamed to call myself a gamer. Until now. These misogynist little shitbags are a disgrace to our community.
All of us who care about gaming need to step up and save our community, while there is still something about it that’s worth saving.

#i don’t consider myself a gamer#because i was never allowed to
i’m keeping the tags for how much they resonate.

"We tell our women “get into science, get into math, get into the pipeline.” Who wants to be in a pipeline full of acid?"

Alicia Menendez - The View

I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.

The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.

so my sister works in STEM & if you talked to her for like 5 minutes she can tell you how true this is. it’s fucking poisonous

Even the efforts to make things better often just reveal how bad they are.

I got run out of reddit for saying this exact shit. So many cismen flooded my inbox explaining at me how their company took this or that measure to “attract women”. You know, the singular gestalt consciousness of Woman. AND BY JOVE IT DIDN’T WORK!?!??! So therefore, the paragraphs I just spent describing how terrible it is to be read as female while in tech didn’t actually happen. Or if it did, their company was exempt cause they made a fucking token effort.

I couldn’t take it. I got off that piece of shit site. But the point remains, and this quote puts it so well. It has nothing to do with getting into STEM. It has to do with staying in STEM, while everyone and everything around you is trying to make you quit. I promise you, take any random white cisman and put him in the same situation and he’d have a nervous breakdown within the week. Women and those read as women have to do this ALL THE TIME.
