Gamers and geeks in general need to be held accountable for the sexist and other crap we do. Whether sexist art or rape jokes.

Penny Arcade should be ashamed of themselves and apologize in a big way. Folks defending themselves should have a deep look at their own sexism and adherence to the patriarchy that condones rape jokes. To have let this go on for such a longtime is deeply problematic and representative of a patriarchial way of thinking and deeply engrained priviledge.

Anyone going to PAXEast (or anyother of their conventions) should unfriend me now because you represent a large faction of gaming and geekdom that I am ashamed to be associated with.
