"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

It seems that I jump around a lot between “classic literature” and fantasy. To be honest, lately I more try to catch up with “the classics” when I’m not reading something of theoretical nature.
(a note to self: besides the “classics” try to read more literature written by women, queer people and people of color)
