Look, I’m not famous enough to attract negative attention too much for stating my opinions, nor am I famous enough to budge too many people’s views either. But I will say that other men not standing up when bro-dudes are being shitty is part of the problem with so many subcultures I’m part of. It needs to stop.

I don’t know Zoe Quinn, I’ve never played a game she’s made, I don’t  give a shit about what her supposed (total bullshit, btw) private and professional transgressions are. NOTHING could ever justify the amount of harassment she’s enduring.  That an immature person couldn’t handle his fee-fees without turning to the internet and launching this campaign gets me REALLY MAD. This coupled with the Anita Sarkeesian harassment in the SAME GODDAMN WEEK has me even MADDER. Coming hot off the heels of Ferguson, I am just about ready to hand in my straight white guy card.

I don’t, though, because renouncing my privilege doesn’t help anyone. Staying quiet doesn’t help anyone. Sometimes standing up for justice means you have to endure some lack of popularity. I don’t look to stick my nose where is doesn’t belong very often. But this is bigger than ‘drama.’ This is about addressing a subculture that in many quarters is filled with pain and fear and sickness in its heart. Nothing will get better without that being confronted with clear eyes.

With all the memes you have going on, I can’t understand how “Good Guy Shannon” isn’t one of them.

the best kind of flirting: the flirting where apparently neither of you knew you were flirting but APPARENTLY EVERYONE ELSE DID

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
