J Smooth calls out online harassment as a serious issue in “All These Sexist Gamer Dudes Are Some Shook Ones”. Thanks for being a great male ally in the struggle against sexism!
I especially love this vid because he directly addresses the whole “Trolls will be trolls” excuse. I don’t care if people troll for trollings sake and “don’t actually believe” the sexist or racist things they say. That’s bullshit. Anyone who thinks saying sexist or racist things is funny or ironic is actually….wait for it…. sexist and racist! Harassment for harassment sake is still harassment, and I’m never going to let fear of “feeding the trolls” keep me from calling out harassment when I see it. I think the “don’t feed the trolls” mantra is a big part about why online harassment remains such a big problem.
