Anita Sarkeesian, whose excellent Tropes vs Women in Video Games series is an important contribution to the discussion of gender and games, has been driven from her home by enraged male gamers whose stalking, and explicit, credible threats of sexual violence against her and her family convinced her to go into hiding.
In so doing, these men have ably demonstrated the point Sarkeesian sought to make all along: that gaming is riddled with misogynistic violence, and that this violence reflects a real-world misogyny rampant within the gaming world.
Trolls drive Anita Sarkeesian out of her house to prove misogyny doesn’t exist [Adi Robertson/The Verge]
This makes me so sad. I love her videos and I feel so bad for her.
Because of how he trained her Regina had to always hold on to that anger.
Her ass got excited and happy for two seconds for doing something right then nope it went away because happiness and joy is not the way she was taught to tap into her power.
But with the annoyance she makes it flair up again. She had to constantly stay in touch with the worse of herself in order to be protected..because without magic she was just Regina with a dead fiancee, an abusive mom , a scared ass dad, a perv old ass husband , and a kid sister /step daughter. No allies, no power, magically trapped in a kingdom..

Take my water
Burn my olive trees
Destroy my house
Take my job
Steal my land
Imprison my father
Kill my mother
Bomb my country
Starve us all
Humiliate us all
I am to blame: I shot a rocket back]
