Nerds and Male Privilege: Tropes, Trolls, Haters and Anita Sarkeesian


Leaping once more into the breach, Dr. Nerdlove writes about “the Internet Hate Machine” and  Feminist Frequency‘s Anita Sarkeesian.  “There’s a good question as to just why there’s this active core of hatred and fear of women in geek culture and why they seem so determined to silence anyone–women especially–who dares question male privilege.  Now let’s be clear: I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, so take this as just my opinion borne out of what I’ve seen in over 20+ years of being on the Internet. The misogyny we’re seeing in nerd culture is more about what happens when entitlement and resentment melt together and form a bitter little pill.”
