So, let's see, Anita Sarkeesian gets invited to speak at Utah State University by their Center for Women and Gender. This invitation brings out the usual festering shitthrowing with a topping of a threat of mass violence directed at Sarkeesian and attendees at this event. "Enhanced security procedures" be damned, because according to Utah state law, the right of somebody with a valid concealed carry permit to bring their weapon to the event trumps the ability to safely hold the event.

Let's be blunt here, this tells me that any place in this country with carry permits is the least safe place to speak out against the power of the state and the ability of men to control the lives of women. Last time I checked, this is a classic fascist tactic. I'm not safe from these threats here at home, but at least here, law enforcement such as it is, still finds this illegal as hell.

And now, this means that I've got to think seriously about staying well away from any place in this country with laws like this. Wisconsin, unfortunately, this means you.
