Idiot of the Week: “Everything is Sexist” Anita Sarkeesian

Here’s an old classic: Anita Sarkeesian is entirely serious about this charge, too. If everything is sexist/racist/homophobic then the gravy train of VictimBux will never end, and she will always have a job: insulting everyone else on the planet. She basically gets paid to tell us all how horrible and evil we are. What a […]

On Twitter, Conspiracy Theories, and Information Cascades

Feminist Frequency

On February 9th, Twitter announced the formation of a council made up of over 40 organizations, of which Feminist Frequency is one. These organizations are not involved in micromanaging Twitter on a daily basis or making decisions with regards to action taken against accounts or tweets, but rather, have been assembled to consult with Twitter generally about how to best navigate the challenges of allowing freedom of expression while also fighting abuse. In the days since the announcement, a wild conspiracy has formed that presents me as an Orwellian villain with the power to control what others can and can’t say on Twitter, despite the fact that, again, Feminist Frequency is just one of more than 40 organizations on a council that also includes groups like GLAAD and the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

Blog posts have been written, video rants have been filmed, and hundreds of tweets have been…

Major update to Crash Override!

FINALLY I CAN

I knew Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn were going to do this, this is so fucking obvious that a four year old could have called it. But this is dangerous, very dangerous.

This is why I am going to be investigating as hard as I can, how far up these people go. Because we need to know how to defeat these people, otherwise we are going to be slaves, and the book 1984 is going to be reality.

The excerpt underneath is not good.

TELL YOU SOME OF THE STUFF I’VE BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST FEW MONTHS 😀 This isn’t all of it by any means, but it’s something pretty cool!Crash Override is proud to announce sponsorship from Feminist Frequency. By accepting tax-deductible donations through this partnership, Crash Override will be able to greatly expand operations and assist more people, all for free. Together, Feminist Frequency and Crash Override will work to make a safer internet for everyone. We’ve been going through some major internal changes are we grow, and funding will go a long way to help us provide better training, security, tools, and programs both internally and externally. We’ve also developed a new tool we call COACH – Crash Override’s Automated Cybersecurity Helper. Co-founder Zoe Quinn used the same tools she uses to make games to make an interactive, easy-to-follow security checklist that allows anyone to secure their accounts, remove personal information, and protect their privacy at their own pace. While we love having in-depth and comprehensive guides, they don’t work for everyone. After looking at success rates from manually walking someone through locking their accounts down, versus just giving them a guide, it became clear that we could help a lot more people if we were able to take them through step by step. Since we can’t be everywhere at once, why not make a program to help others do some basic digital self-defense at their own pace? We’re hoping that COACH can use the strength of interactivity to fill in the gaps and assist more people.Plus, cute robot mascot:Check it out!The partnership and COACH aren’t the only new things. We’ve overhauled our website to better reflect who we are as an organization. New logos, new aesthetics, new everything. Functionality is a lot better now too – not only are there some cool new accessibility features, but everything is cleaner and easier to find now. Since launching in January 2015, we’ve assisted over 1,000 people with our casework and countless more with the guides in our public resource center. Crash Override has  advocated for our clients to tech giants like Twitter and Google, and in the public eye at Congress and the United Nations. In the next year, we will continue to seek out and build relationships with more tech platforms, advocacy organizations and activists, policy makers, and influential voices. Lots more to come soon!
