Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@timeyles But saying the two conversations should be happening simultaneously, or be given anything close to equal weight, is just wrong.@timeyles Maybe, at some distant point in the future, once we sort out the rampant, violent hatred of women thing, we can talk "ethics"..@timeyles These jerkoffs have forfeited their right to be taken seriously. Threats and intimidation should never earn people a platform..@timeyles Do we say "Oh, ISIS just beheaded another guy. Let's treat their feelpinions as legitimate grievances"? Same principle..@timeyles Once again, "threats of rape" vs. "this journo is friends with that developer". Only one of these things is actually an "issue"..@timeyles At root, this is about a bunch of entitled, misogynist neckbeards who don't want girls in their treehouse, except as eye candy.@timeyles Who gives a rats ass? Through their actions, these dickheads have forfeited the right to be taken seriously.@timeyles Oh yeah. I forgot the rampant harassment and bullying of every journalist/outlet that has been critical of the "movement".@timeyles People have been threatened with rape and murder. Over fucking video games. This. Is. All. That. Matters.@alisterrobbie @l_astir #trollingalisterintownsville@alisterrobbie @l_astir and she accidentally uploaded porn and sent it to clients.@alisterrobbie @l_astir and we're drinking all of your beer.@alisterrobbie @l_astir also the cat ate all of the fish.@alisterrobbie So I think that @l_astir just broke the Giotto.GamerGate is about harassing, threatening and silencing women. Started that way, has been that way all along. Don't pretend otherwise.

Deep pan, crust up the sides, sauce on top, cheese and toppings on the bottom: http://t.co/Ha70xpGwR5Also, when I was in Chicago last some useless people sent me to a thin-crust joint. I was devastated.@cupofthrills It is quickly growing from craving to obsession.I am craving proper, Chicago-style deep dish. There's not a single goddamn place to get it here, is there?look, scott m8, you can’t tow back ebola and you can’t just dump it on indonesia so this isn’t your area of expertise.
