I’m starting a drinking game with the comments sections on articles about #GamerGate.

Inspired by a comment on this post.

1 Drink When:

- Someone points to the singular article mentioning Zoe Quinn’s game as proof
- Long word used incorrectly
- “This is about journalistic ethics”
- “False reviews affect me as a game consumer”

2 Drinks When:

- Comment deleted when on the losing side of an argument
- Commenter brings up another supposed transgressor who no one has heard of
- Complete change of “proof” when previous argument is disproven
- Uncited “facts”

Finish the Bottle When:

- Fake tweet used as “proof”
- “sexism against men”

I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’ 

You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.

KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.

I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?

If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

Flatmate, Boy, and I have reached the conclusion that the writers of How to Get Away with Murder have made it their personal mission to put at least one gratuitous gay sex scene in every episode, to make up for the dearth of gay in the rest of television.

And it is glorious.
