Anonymous said: Hi, I am interested in being a member of delta sigma theta inc. Last semester I told one member of delta sigma theta that I was interested. She graduated last spring and after I told her I was interested it seemed like nothing happened. I'm not sure if she told the remaining members that I'm an interest. Who it be a good idea to tell another member that I'm interested?
Yoy can tell someone else but here’s why nothing happened:
On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.
The people who say that there’s no sexism in gaming; do they ever wonder why “trolls” consistently target people who point out sexism and take it to these extremes or is the whole thing just random chance to them every single time?
Wow. I watched this video a few months back, and I had no idea this had happened. I ultimately stopped being an active online gamer due to the harassment. Getting a message saying “hey whore” every time I logged onto PSN. Or being told a variety of sexually explicit things while playing online… it’s exhausting. Poor girl.
