A Long Post About #GamerGate

(This was also posted to the other blog, identically.)

Okay. So, right upfront, I feel like I need to say that I’m posting this to my own blogs on my own time under my own name and my own name only because its coming 100% from me. It’s got nothing to do with any person I work for or any of the websites/outlets/etc my work appears on. Nobody asked me to write this, nobody asked me not to write it, and you shouldn’t take anything I have to say as either endorsement or rejection of anything any other person or entity has said or not said on the matter – personally or as a matter of policy. Being a grownup, I’m perfectly capable and willing to work for and alongside people who disagree with me, so long as it’s amicable and mutually respectful. I have done so in the past, and I expect to do so in the future.

So…

GAME OVERTHINKER CONBRAVO SCHEDULE

Hey there!

I'll be making my first ever appearance on the Canadian convention circuit at ConBravo this weekend! If you're going, here's the places and times you can find me in terms of panels and events.

I'll also be out and about and will likely find at least a few hours to set up for autographs and selling copies of SMB3: Brick By Brick; but even if you just see me walking the floor by all means feel free to say hi (I might have books with me then, too.)

Here's how things look...

How to Be a Grownup

(related: Today's article at The Escapist re: Men's Rights Activism an NO MA'AM)

I find myself wishing that I disagreed with friends and colleagues on "important" matters more than I do, because it would be greater evidence for the truth that I don't really fall into ideological lockstep with... well, any one thing, really. You can swear up and down that you own more than one pair of shoes, but if someone has only ever seen you wear the one pair you can't really prove it.

In the spirit of that: I don't agree with some of the points made/research cited in the finale few minutes of the most recent Tropes vs Women installment - at least not in the broadest sense. I do, in fact, think that while the ability of art and media to influence the psyche, beliefs and even behavior of those who consume it is undeniable; that it's also entirely possible to not be influenced (in a negative way or to a tangible degree) by it.
