Gotta stand up. Haters gonna hate, but they rarely do more than that.

As someone who worked in the gaming industry too, I think there’s definitely some angst coming out at us, especially from men who are gamers but aren’t in the industry. Frankly I think it’s just jealousy, so they have to find some way to try and stick it to us.

Maybe I’m just stupid, but I don’t take anyone online seriously. While I’ve had people harass me online, in real life, when I give them “the look”, they tend to be stupefied. But then again, after learning some judo, some kendo, and having my shinai in my car, I feel like I could take an unarmed attacker pretty easily.
