All day today I’ve had a few thoughts rumbling around in my head.
The same people who will tell you that we can’t blame all Muslims for today in France will also tell you that all of GamerGate is about harassing women and keeping them out of gaming.
The same people who will tell you that this happened because they insulted Mohammad will also tell you that if you write a post about how women can avoid potentially dangerous scenarios you are victim-blaming.
The same people who will snark all day about Christians will call you racist for making fun of anything to do with Islam (because “Muslim” is a race).
The internet has done a great many things; the worst thing it has done is give such a platform to blithering idiots and hypocrites.
