"Lights Go Out" - Summerslam (2014)
[Harassment has] been a constant part of my experience ever since I began working at GameSpot. And the reality is that before I took the job, I knew a certain percentage of young, straight men would vocally object to the presence of a transgender woman on the staff of a gaming site.
They feel entitled not only to games, but to the communities that had built up around games. For these men, the presence of women on these sites was acceptable only if they felt that the presence of those women was intended to appeal to them. Caroyln Petit, as quoted in this excellent article (via discovergames)
you don’t like a certain wrestler. it’s cool, man. we all have wrestlers we don’t like. but it’s weak to call them pathetic and other personal insults just because you don’t like them. and if you truly do think that about them, then keep it to yourself. in fact, i think it’s kinda pathetic making a big post on WHY you don’t like them.
