Another helpful tip: if you really think it’s part of your culture to say dumb things, maybe your culture is dumb.
Chris Sims, not the one from Princeton, wrote about the Street Fighter guy who tried to defend sexual harassment in the pro gaming circles. It’s worth a read, and it’s also a shame that anybody even needs to explain to a guy why that’s such a dumb thing to say.
Just be cool, everybody. Be cool. I know this is the internet and we get real excited about stuff, but just take it easy, think about what you’re about to say, and if you’d be embarrassed to say it to your mom, maybe don’t say it? I know, it’s tough, but we’ll get through it together, everybody.
