The man who kicked off Gamergate and the brutal harassment of untold women by posting a 9,000-word screed about his ex-girlfriend's sex-life says he'd do it again (can't make an omelet without breaking ovaries, you know).

So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set. Sitting in […]
