… but I changed it because I didn’t want the drama.
The linked article is, incidentally, why I no long really write (directly) about things like videogames, comic books, or pop culture in general. And remember that I don’t even really publish much outside my own platform; the incidents I’ve had have all involved men coming to me, into my space, to tell me how I deserve to die because I didn’t like a film/game/comic/etc.
Women… not so much. Which isn’t to say I’ve never had drama with other women on the internet; I have, often. It just tends to be phrased differently when it does happen, i.e. not with them coming into the comments section on my blog and telling me I’m a dumb cunt who deserves to be raped. Which, yanno. Go figure, right?
These are the scars the internet leaves us.
