A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting an update from Hank following the disaster that was the “Women Online” panel focused on the harassment and abuse women receive online. Through some sort of cosmic joke, Anita Sarkeesian ended up on the panel and it didn’t take long before she put on a marvelous display of hypocrisy by pointing at a member of the audience and proudly proclaiming that he was “human garbage”.
So why the controversy? The targeted member of the audience was none other than Sargon of Akkad, a famous YouTuber that dissects news and videos pointing out the errors and mistakes made. This criticism presented by Sargon and others is according to Anita plain harassment. I’m not sure if this was an intentional way to get a new victim card from the deck, or just a demonstration of her inability to control herself, but the outcome so far might be worse than the incident.

This is an open letter to the special snowflakes at McMasters University. It is also aimed at PACBIC who released a crackpot statement about the event, demonstrating their lack of common sense and logical thinking. Before you activate your special victim superpowers the next time, a suggestion would be to listen and to actually understand the arguments first.
Watching the latest of Dr. Jordan Petersons talks, a few things became apparent. For starters, Dr. Peterson is a hero. I would even go as far as to say that he is the modern “Tank Man of Tiananmen Square” as he stand up against the tyranny of oppression, fueled by your illogical hate. And he is doing it without poisoning the debate; his arguments are on-topic, sensible and verifiable. When your crew of misfits try to cause disturbance, he keeps talking, maintaining a calm voice, and makes you appear as the infantile children you are.

When I was little, I was a proud anti-fascist. The worst people around at the time was the right-wing extremists, with their signature bomber jackets and boots. But the ones I encountered, although maybe not being that extreme weren’t that bad. They had opinions, but they wouldn’t resort to violence to get their gibberish heard, and the debate was encouraged. Many were the hours spent intensely debating points presented by both sides, and I think in the end it left us all the wiser.
Fast forward 20 years. I’m still strongly against fascism, but just like the label feminist has been hijacked, so has the label anti-fascist. The worst people around today are the left-wing extremists, and society is bending over backwards to accommodate them. The anti-fascists have become the new fascists. And they aren’t afraid to use violence to silence the voices they don’t agree with.

The cesspool of ignorance that is BuzzFeed has done it again. “Three women experience what it’s like to manspread and take up space for one week” is the subject of a video posted a month ago, lowering the bar even more if that is even possible. The article can be found here but if you want to watch the actual video you have to do so on YouTube. They have disabled embedding for the video, meaning it won’t even play on their own site. They have also disabled comments, so for those you need to visit the article. Geniuses at work, obviously.

My comic strip on the matter is by far the only commentary out there on Laci Green’s video on what constitutes humor [link]. In this post you will find a bunch of videos on the topic that might give you a bit more insight into the matter. It should come as no surprise that someone that keeps playing the “offended”-card will piss off a lot of people that values the freedoms of the western society; pesky little things such as the right to free speech.
To quote some wise men on the importance of free speech (as it turns out, finding quotes by women on the matter was harder than expected):
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” – George Orwell
“I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.” – Oscar Wilde
“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” – George Washington
