Aussie Gamer Contacts Mums of Boys Who Make Rape Threats

As is sadly the case with many women who dare to express opinions or, like, say anything whatsoever about video games, Aussie reviewer Alanah Pearce has faced threats of rape and sexual abuse on the internet.

However, as is currently being reported, Pearce grew tired of the threats being directed against her by “young boys”, and so, decided to take a bold step, contacting their mothers and tell them what has been going on.

As shown above, her conversation with one mother went as follows:

“Hi Anna, I don’t know you, but I was wondering if [blanked-out] is your son?”

“Yes he is. Why?”  
“I have never met him before, but he sent me a concerning message to my public Facebook page today that I was wondering if you might be interested in discussing with him.”  
“Omg, little sh*t. I’M SO SORRY. YES I WILL TALK TO HIM!”
While making rape threats online is unacceptable, period, the fact that the dumbarse in question used his real name – or something close enough that Pearce could identify him – means there may be some kind of actual consequences for his actions.
According to Twitter, she has contacted four mothers, but the other three have not yet replied. We’ll follow Pearce’s story as it develops.
