{TW: misogyny, rape threats, harassment]

So you know how idiot sexists are always saying “well, if you’re so concerned about sexism and the media, why don’t you make your own game?”

It turns out a female developer can’t even submit a game to Steam Greenlight without someone calling her house and threatening her with rape.

Seriously, the next time you see someone be like “But why don’t you just make all the gamez!?” Just…glue their face to their screen or something.

(Note: Don’t actually glue anyone’s face to a screen, okay?)

A white supremacist charged with killing three people near two Jewish community facilities in suburban Kansas City this week posted more than 12,000 messages on a racist website which carries the slogan “No Jews, Just Right,” according to an organization that tracks hate groups.

The online activity by Frazier Glenn Cross follows a trend in which prolific posters on hate online forums are becoming “disproportionately responsible” for racist murders and mass killings, according to a report released on Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit civil rights organization.

The report said nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by frequent users of one white supremacist website, Stormfront. The site describes itself as a community of “White Nationalists” and “the voice of the new, embattled White minority.”

“It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged,” said Heidi Beirich, author of the report.
