Journalism and sexism in the games industry

You don't understand, he's also French. Weep with him brethren, cry bitter salt tears and rend thy clothes.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Okay I'm following this drama only barely, so who's this guy and what's his role? I've looked up his twitter and the only thing I've been able to confirm is that he has some form of personality disorder or a mental illness or somesuch.

An editor at Mother Jones. Essentially he is just some **** who likes to throw his poop at people.

No games for one whole day! Such a task must take an incredible amount of willpower.
It's *online* games. Also, count me out of it. I am still addicted to Dark Souls 2 and I like to coop the bosses with other players after a hard workday that has me out of the house for 12 hours. I need my chillaxing in the evening at the moment and I'll do it with playin' all em geams, yo. :> #IdontCareBoutYerAllIssues

Dude, that's even weaker. I'm wondering how much of an impact it will have, as I assume we will see less tragic due to Halloween hangovers anyway.

What a load of ****. Nobody's coming to take away his video games. I support GamerGate, but that's just overdramatic nonsense. That's not even on the table. The mythical "SJW" doesn't have that power, that's why they rely on journalism to spread misinformation and push anvilicious, moralizing games. The fact that most reviewers still give GTA games super high ratings shows exactly how powerless they are against the capitalist machine. Leigh Alexander may be holding a megaphone, but if she takes on the Steam train she'll get just as splattered over the track as the guy who doesn't.

She is not holding a megaphone, she is a megaphone.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I get the sense these morons think by such Tweets they've joined some cool club, and they'll garner the adoration of females. Manginas, yes, that's the term I'm looking for.

Not even that. It saw a hot button issue where it could offend people for some easy publicity. It's a scavenger. A subhuman creature. :lol:

I know what she said and considering it is completely stupid I've elected to restructure it. She is not an object, as much as she literally objectifies herself. Don't see me saying "I am a candle" do you? I can't believe someone who will say that can hold a job as a writer. It must be easier than I thought.

I hate to throw my hometown under the bus like this, but iirc Mother Jones is stationed in San Francisco. Can't deny that this train of thought does seem to be based in and around the Bay Area.

At the risk of generalizing, it seems a certain mindset has become prevalent there. Sam Biddle is mentioned as well. He's been dribbling verbal diarrhea for some time.

Well I haven't been back to SF in a long time, but the SF I left was a highly diverse little city and that's what made it so beautiful. It houses every kind of thought, every kind of person and every kind of political stance. SF has super high rates of both homosexual and disabled citizens, which is kinda cool because it means those two receive representation they simply won't realistically achieve anywhere else.

 

   But when you include everyone, you include EVERYONE. Unfortunately that means these people too...

 

 

 

 

On a side note, I will be playing TF2 tomorrow in celebration of their "protest," and I will be playing it with a French Canadian girl I know with an outrageous french accent who happens to have DD boobs of justice. No, I'm not making this up, and that's what makes it so awesome. :p

Maybe they just don't wanna go because it would involve combing their hair.

 

 

 

 

I'll be here all week, folks.

I think you would need more than a comb to fix that monstrosity.

 

More seriously, I think that acknowledging the people they've demonized have legitimate concerns and that they haven't been ethical would be too embarrassing for our self-appointed moral guardians. Their current tactics of poopflinging behind impenetrable walls of ignorance is working in the sense that they don't have to acknowledge any wrongdoing on their part, but is making them look more like **** to observers who look more than 5 minutes. Unfortunately for them, starving the beast tactics employed by GG may result in them being unable to stay in the ignorance fort.

I don't see where I asked why. I know exactly why, because they're intellectually dishonest cowards who are so insecure in their opinions that they don't want to risk anyone forcing them to actually think about it. That doesn't make it any less frustrating.

I had a video pop up in my recommended videos just now.

 

It's titled "cultural marxism: a CIS story" and involves an overweight woman who is completely topless arguing with a butch lesbian about privileges and stuff because - and don't quote me on this because much of the "discussion" is more of a screaming match with the two yelling and accusing each other of needing to stop marginalizing each other's opinions and other weird ****ing terms I'm unfamiliar with - but I think it's about how the lesbian was upset because there was some women's meeting to discuss issues effecting women or whatever and transgender women were protesting that they were not allowed at said meeting, and the argument involves the lesbian arguing with the topless lady (and a couple other flaming gay dudes) about whether this is discrimination or whether the transgender women simply do not belong with such a meeting.

 

 

This is the best circus I've ever seen.

Pretty sure that the hair has become aware.

I'm a poet and didn't know it.

That rhyme should be a crime.
