This is awesome.
When it comes to copyright and intellectual property interests, companies are highly responsive… But, says Jan Moolman, who coordinates the Association of Progressive Communications’s women’s rights division, “‘garden variety’ violence against women—clearly human rights violations—frequently get a lukewarm response until it becomes an issue of bad press.”

Is passionately mellow a thing? It’s what this playlist conveys to me. “I’ll Keep Coming” starts us off, a highlight off of Low Roar’s second album, O. Following is the stunning Tina Dico; “Someone You Love” has been on repeat for me on a few melancholy evenings.
In the country as a whole, the study found, whites make up 63 percent of the population but fill nine out of 10 of the country’s more than 40,000 local, state and federal offices. Fifty-one percent of American are women, but men hold 71 percent of elective offices.

It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
So I’m not sticking with my 4 because it’s better in some bizarre way…I’m sticking with it precisely because it no longer matters. This upgrade cycle is a big deal the way the release of the new Honda Civic is a big deal. It’s a new design…it’s got cool stuff and new features…but I’m not gonna get the new Honda Civic if my old Honda Civic is working just fine. It’s a car…it gets my ass where it needs to go, and I don’t really care if it has…whatever 2014 cars have that 2008 cars don’t. I can’t even come up with an example.
It is the height of hypocrisy to claim that sexism and discrimination are problems while leaving unchecked one of the most obvious sites of infection for those ills in our industry.
