Anita Sarkeesian, creator of the popular Tropes vs. Women video series, is at the center of yet another death threat. The Standard Examiner reports that the director of Utah State University’s Center for Women and Gender, along with several other people, received an email promising a mass shooting if they didn’t cancel a speaking engagement for Sarkeesian, who is scheduled to talk at the center on Wednesday morning. A member of the Center for Women and Gender confirmed to The Verge that the threat was real, although she and campus police declined to provide more details.
The Standard-Examiner has printed what it says are excerpts from the letter, in which the unknown author (who claims to be a Utah State student) claims to have “a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs.” More specifically, they threatened to carry out a “Montreal Massacre-style attack” against Sarkeesian and anyone who attended the talk. “Feminists have ruined my life and I will have my revenge,” reads the email. The Montreal Massacre, carried out in December of 1989, was a mass shooting directed at engineering students in Montreal’s École Polytechnique. The killer, who also claimed that his life had been ruined by feminists, singled out women and murdered 14 before killing himself. Today, its anniversary is commemorated in Canada as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

I think its horrible how people just celebrate Halloween without knowing why! We wouldn’t even be here if Jesus hadn’t slain that colossal pumpkin

True magic is neither black, nor white - it’s both because nature is both. Loving and cruel, all at the same time. The only good or bad is in the heart of the witch. Life keeps a balance on its own.

I make jokes about me being a giant gay all the time (because I am an actual gay person) but there’s a difference between joking about yourself and literally making being gay INTO a joke and this website overwhelmingly does the latter
