My first piece for The Daily Dot is now online! I wrote about the latest rage-inspiring topic in the Gamergate saga, which occurred when (sigh) a guy decided he was going to threaten people and then later claim it was all a joke. It got me thinking about trolling and the art of parody and why exactly what Jace Connors did wasn’t funny. The short summary: what he did was abusive, whether or not he stuck a “haha just kidding” at the end of it. You can read my piece more in detail for what I consider to be a proper parody.
