Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

Almost exactly a year ago, Islan Nettles, a trans woman of color, was murdered in Harlem. She was attacked by a group of men who found out that she and her friends were transgender, and four days later she died in the hospital.

The investigation into her brutal murder has been egregiously mishandled, a sadly predictable script when it comes to…
women work really hard to get men to listen to their perspectives, opinions, and experiences, and it seems like men mostly just work really hard to get women to shut up

Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
Since when is embracing your sexuality and SIMPLY, YOUR BODY as a beautiful woman not synonymous with feminism?! GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE.
I can never stop laughing at this
