I know gofundme has fucked shit up, but it seems like this project is about 700 away from its second goal of clip on cameras for residents

http://www.gofundme.com/Copwatching-in-Ferguson

All cops should be wearing these, and it be unlawful for them to turn them off. Accountability of their actions from a distance can skew the facts if the recording is not starting at the beginning of the incident. If cops were forced to wear these on their chests, audio recording, video recording, we could get the entire event from car to street with all these situations where we really need to know what happened 100%, not 5… 10 minutes later after someone got killed. The video taken from police cameras should also have a chain of custody, who has the camera (with police badge number directly on the video), who accessed/removed/replaced the SD cards, who is moving the data, where the data is going and who is analysing the situations. A lack of accountability will hinder the effectiveness and raise more suspicion as to how the data was handled. An officers entire shift should be recorded, front view, even if he stops in for a coffee, all of it.

We’ve reached this point and while citizen cameras are one option they are not a definitive solution to who is accountable in situations. These police required videos can be teamed with public citizen videos to corroborate the situation as it happened as well as fill in the missing pieces.

So, only criticize men. Even if women deserve criticism, do not criticize them. Only men. link

This is a real article, people!

You have got to be kidding me… I have not read the whole article yet, but will attempt to after my shower.
This little blurb though… Seriously? Don’t criticize a woman just because she is a woman? I know I am personally very defensive and protective of women, but I do not believe in the slightest that they should be immune from all kinds of criticism. They are people and are still subject to being criticized for their views and stuff.
- Mod Helga

Is this about Zoe Quinn? Y’know…I’m getting REALLY sick of people defending what she did. I don’t even care that she cheated - that shit is personal. I care that she used sex as a tool just to progress herself at the expense of others. Of course the first thing I found when I searched her name were countless articles defending her, one even saying they wished more people did this - that MORE people took the most selfish and destructive means to accomplishing what THEY want at the expense of the emotions of others. 

But no. You don’t want PEOPLE to be more like Quinn - you want women too. But here’s the thing. If we saturate the market with female devs who got there through scandal and cheating and lying, and leave behind the female devs who are decent fucking human beings, then that is how we get, well, the current market ruled by “free to play” and companies who often don’t give a shit about you (I’m looking at you EA). Selfishness is the PROBLEM not the fucking solution. 

But onto the main point, DON’T PERPETUATE THIS IDEA THAT YOU CAN’T CRITICIZE WOMEN. FUCK. THAT. Seriously, for all this harping about “damsels in distress” and how women can do anything, there sure are a lot of feminists who get really angry if you’re critical of a woman. Not of woman in general. Not of feminism. Of a person and their personal actions. And that’s fucking bullshit. Just for kicks I found the article this is from in which he claims “Well none of this is proven, and it’s just an angry ex, and blah blah blah”. The article itself even recognizes that many of the people angry at Quinn supported huge projects to promote women in the gaming industry - and yet still goes on to defend Quinn saying “Well it’s only ALLEGED that she tried to sabotage their project”. And it makes you wonder how much of a resume of horrible shit a person has to produce before you stop saying “alleged” and start thinking that maybe, just MAYBE she is an actual horrible person and realize that yes, WOMEN ARE FULLY CAPABLE OF BEING HORRIBLE PEOPLE. If criticizing women like Quinn are going to “drive women away from gaming” then clearly we as women do have a long way to go, but personally I think we have tougher skin than that, and more importantly, most women aren’t going to do the shit Quinn does. You can’t compare her to female devs that got there the honest way.

Feminism is supposed to be about treating women like human beings. And you know what we do to humans? We call them out on mistakes to help them improve.

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.
