I Shall Guard It With My Leaf

I’m so fucking tired of people not getting this.  In a forum thread discussing Tropes Vs. Women, I’ve been explaining how the representation of women in media SUCKS.  I’ve been doing this for a while now, and have been given the run-around by damn near everyone.

I explain facts about how underrepresented women are, people obsess over irrelevant things.  I point out how much they’re dodging the issues, and a MOD comes to tell me to calm down.  Mind you, I am also a mod.  I would never abuse that privilege for my own benefit, but it should at least earn me a little damn respect.  The fact that people have treated me like some know-nothing and try to tone-police me to calm down when all I’ve done is been calm just makes it blatant how fucking stacked the cards are against women when it comes to video games in particular but media in general as well.

Don’t tell me to calm down.  I’ve been calm, and it hasn’t done shit for me.
