OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

“You fool. No man can kill me.”
How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic
This revelation just knocked me over.

Not that I feel overwhelming compelled to jump into the front lines of all this, the ongoing campaign of harassment by a select group of “gamers” and hate groups against women associated with the video game industry, like Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, is too unbelievably pathetic, and dangerous, to ignore. It’s all well documented and easy to find. It’s a pretty dark time for games.
The undue sense of ownership and entitlement by this particular subset of video game players is pretty remarkable. In Sarkeesian’s case, it’s as if her critiques against the games and their problems or flaws were direct attacks against the people who play them. Play them, not even develop or fund or have any other kind of direct involvement in their creation. Just play.
As simply the players, we have no ownership of these titles. We have no stake. To react to their critique with such intense vitriol and anger is ludicrous. To then further the point of the critique by reacting with essentially the same actions that are being critiqued (in this case) is even more so. As if criticism of a game you like somehow prevents you from enjoying it, or retroactively removes the joy from a previous experience.
You are not the game, the game is not you. If you take the critique of video games so directly, so personally, especially as just a player, enough that you feel you need to lash out, harass, advocate or threaten violence against, etc, the people providing the criticism, it might be time for a radical reevaluation of the priorities and values in your life.
