Somewhere along the line, for reasons that are utterly beyond me, TV’s Adam Baldwin got involved. Do you know how weird it is to see an actor from a show you love repost conspiracy videos about how your sex life is somehow ruining video games? Pretty goddamned weird, it turns out. A friend suggested that ever since his stint as Jayne on Firefly, Baldwin is afraid of women named Zoe. That at least took the sting out of no longer being able to watch one of my favorite shows without scowling so hard I sprain my face.

Look, I know you’re self-confident and have a body you and others consider attractive, and that you like the fun and intimacy that taking and sharing photographs of it with your consenting partner provides, but is that really NECESSARY? Do you really feel like that’s something you NEED to do? Is it worth the risk when you know there are people out there who might try to hack into your private accounts and steal them?

I mean, I like to not be incredibly bored while driving an hour to and from work each day by listening to music on the stereo, but is it NECESSARY? Do I really feel like it’s something I NEED to do? Is it worth the risk when I know there are people out there who might try to break into my car and steal it?

“White knighting” is a pejorative term bigots use to undermine such actions from men who are using their voices for support, not for condemnation and misogyny. Bigots use it to claim men are supporting women in the hopes of sleeping with women. Because, apparently, that’s the only reason you would ever want to treat someone as a person.

"That’s just how men are."

If you’re a woman and you’re saying this, you’re enabling, reinforcing, and endorsing this behavior. And your stamp of approval will get trotted out as backup over and over again.

If you’re a man and you’re saying this, you’re throwing your entire gender under the bus for YOUR lack of ambition to be better than a stereotype, and admitting that you’re perfectly content with being seen as little more than an immature child.
