If you're curious about what Damien Walter's doing

I left this comment at Forget Iron Man-child – let's fight the white maleness of geek culture: "I remember Damien Walter tweeting me once to say I suffered from "class envy". I look at "Young white men often number among the most useless and deficient individuals in society" and wonder if I'm hearing a privileged sneer at what's called white trash in the states and, if I have the term right, chavs over there. The realities of power and privilege are simple: if you want to start at the lowest difficulty setting there is, it's better to be born to rich parents of any hue than poor parents of any hue."
