conner + sexism   168

We must bulldoze what’s left of the nerdy white men’s Internet
"This episode is a helpful way to look at the state of the Internet in 2015: angry nerds using mobs of sockpuppets to help them fight their anonymous culture wars."

"There is a reality that is slowly but surely revealing itself through all this, one that may have always been true: These anonymous men aren’t underdogs who have been unfairly excluded from pop culture due to their dense interest in quirky topics. They’re antisocial hatemongers, and one way or another, they will be left behind."
