Sony’s poor security was a big part of it, but also let’s be real for a second: they were being targeted by the government of North Korea. North Korea spends more money on cyber (and conventional) warfare than they do on feeding their people.
Over on Cheezeburger and in the Youtube comments, there are apparently lots of hurt feelings because this anchor dared to have a human reaction to such an absurd sight for the first time, and some of them were even demanding that she be fired for a lack of professionalism. How exactly is someone supposed to react when seeing something so silly looking for the first time? Nut up or shut up.
What I want to know, is since when was it the university’s job to investigate sexual assault and doll out discipline based on their findings? Isn’t that a job for, you know, the POLICE?
Game journos gave a platform to the crazies, like the ones who banned GTAV, and sided with them.

It’s probably a giant mound of pubic hair. I hear peta girls don’t like to shave.
I keep expecting to see one of these people do an “oh no!” gesture with their hands over their face.
I didn’t say it was spur-of-the-moment. If it was a member of the community (which may or may not be the case), chances are they pre-meditated the act well in advance of going to the convention. We don’t know the motivation behind the person yet and more details are likely to come forth soon.
And in case it’s not clear, I have nothing against furries, and I do not mean to diminish the possibility that bias was the motivation behind the attack.
To whomever did this: do you really want the furry fandom to be covered by US hatecrime laws? Because that is what will happen if violence keeps happening against them. Do you really want everyone to have to worry if the Southern Poverty Law Center is watching every time they type “yiff in hell furfags?”
TBH though I am guessing that this was just a deranged and angry convention goer who decided to do something stupid. From what little I know of the furry community, it’s that some (not all) of their members can be very dramatic.
Don’t worry Knuckles, there’s always Project M.
What flagrant speceism.

I’m not an atheist, although here is my understanding of it: it was an attempt by SJWs to co-opt the atheist community, much the same way they are trying to co-opt entertainment fandoms like gaming. Essentially, they wanted to establish that “real atheism” was part of social justice, the same way they want “real gaming” to be part of social justice. The “plus” in Athiesm+ essentially meant “atheism + social justice.” There was a huge pushback because atheism is a completely neutral concept to social justice, and a lot of people in the community did not like having a political agenda shoved upon them just because they do not believe in God (or any other deities).

Pretty much the ur-example of skipping leg day in vidya. He freakin’ walks with his fists.
Knuckles skips leg day, Sonic skips arm day.
Tom Preston / Dobson would know.
