There are wretched, manipulative people that have made a place for themselves in ALL forms of media. In journalism, in gaming, in movies, in music… everywhere.
Those people like to hide behind things that are bigger than they are. Feminism? Yes. Social justice? You betcha. Starving kids in Africa, the fucking tragedy that is the Middle East, innocent teenagers getting shot in the street by cops? Yes, yes and also yes.
They are there. They should be called out on.
But they should NOT be permitted to poison the well of whatever cause they used to hide behind.
We are all smarter than that. We should not perpetuate the manipulation. Because that’s how awful people win every. single. time.
