"What did I do?"
“You killed the car.”
Swedish Lego Users Group Swebrick just held their annual “AFOL vs AFOL” building contest. AFOL stands for “Adult Fan of LEGO” and this year’s building theme was “Any scene from an ’80s movie or TV show featuring a vehicle.” Builder Etzel87 won first place with this awesome recreation of the unforgettable scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off when Cameron vents his long pent-up anger at his dad by kicking his father’s precious Ferrari until it ultimately pops off its jack and crashes through the window of his (now famous) house.
We love the expressions on the minifigs’ faces as they helplessly watch the car plunge toward its doom as well as the use of flat, clear 1x1 pieces for flying shards of glass.

Diversity always wins. Diversity isn’t going to leave music, or TV, or film no matter how many backlashes and reversals there are.
The “fake geek girls” aren’t going to leave your subculture; the “PC police” aren’t going to stop criticizing it. “Angry black women” aren’t getting off your TV and neither are angry Asian men. The “PC diversity brigade” of science-fiction writers is going to keep winning Hugo and Nebula awards, and someday my wife’s going to be one of them.
Critics like Anita Sarkeesian will keep on pointing out what’s bad in games so we can start looking for ways to make games better. Indie designers like Zoe Quinn and Kellee Santiago will keep pushing the boundaries of gaming at the fringes so that people like Manveer Heir and Rhianna Pratchett have breathing room to explore what mainstream “AAA” games can be.
Reactionaries know they can’t win. Their anger stems from their desperation. Read the #GamerGate tag for a while and realize the obsessive fixation on the “corrupt agenda in the gaming press” is, underneath the anger, fear. For all the damage they do, for all the people they hurt, they’re going to lose. Indeed, to react as they have is to prove that they’ve already lost.
After all, #GamerGate, did you think we’d crumble? Did you think we’d lay down and die?
No, not us. We will survive."

A damn good article about how the very real violence resulting from what we call “culture wars” is yet another case of history repeating itself. Hopefully the determination of those willing to analyze, question, and hold media accountable for the narratives it tells us will ensure that this backlash will once again be the harbinger of social change.
