It’s time for prominent figures in the game industry to acknowledge that they’re responsible for the environment that their words create. Because as long as our community leaders are allowed to make misogynist “jokes” about rape and violence against women, how can we expect the sorts of criminal harassment that feminist bloggers face to go away? If rape is something normal, acceptable, and permissible, can we be surprised when the women who dare to speak up for women’s rights are threatened into silence?

Not to mention, I completely agree with her on how poor of a choice it is to have Dale North of all people as Destructoid’s editor in chief. Some may disagree, but I have this little thing called standards and morals.|
