Journalism and sexism in the games industry

H-h-h-how can you live with yourself with your internalized misogyny? Clearly you have been brainwashed by the patriarchy.

 

I hereby apologize for my clothing that you have never seen, feeling better? Feeling is what counts, remember? Not this epiosde of "rational" thought that you're having.

So when someone is murdered, do we put the onus on the murdered person to provide the burden of proof?  No, we we do a full investigation of the likely suspects, and expect them to provide evidence that they weren't involved or at fault.

No, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. The suspects may not have proof they are not guilty, but the responsibility to prove that they are guilty lies with the prosecution. This is the way it should be, as convicting someone for not being able to prove a negative is not a very good standard for a legal system. It would certainly suck of someone was convicted because they stayed home alone and didn't have an alibi for a murder that occurred close to them or involved someone they were in conflict with.

 

To get back to this rape law: you're a father I believe? If one of your kids were accused of rape by someone they had casual sex with and could not prove that it was consensual and the accuser could not prove that it wasn't consensual, why should they bear the burden of proof for a baseless accusation? Shouldn't the accuser be required to bring at least some proof of rape before making accusations?

 

 

But this isn't a baseless accusation, this is a woman (or man) going into a police station, going through the interview process, submitting to tests, etc.  It's an incredibly difficult thing to go through for a victim, hence they high rate of unreported assaults.

 

As for my own children, I hope to raise them with the beliefs that casual sex is inherently dangerous.  I want them to take precautions.

 

 

Do you have unprotected casual sex?  Probably not, that would be crazy.  Well, making sure that the sex is consensual should be right there alongside wearing protection.  It's better to be safe. 

 

Sorry, to keep the derailment.

 

That difficult process of gathering evidence is what will make sure that the perpetrator is caught and convicted. Without it all you have is someone's word against another's and I witness testimony is almost always unreliable, particularly on stressful situations. If the accused has to provide the evidence of something that he/she didn't commit would a lack of evidence be considered enough to dismiss the case? Or would it be enough to convict them if they can't prove it?

 

Either this legislation is just something to appease the torches and pitchforks and the law and how they treat sexual assault will remain the same. Or they will begin throwing more men into prison due to faulty testimony or malicious.

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

Here's what the other ones are thinking about him, he has been basically sentenced for crimethink for ungood thoughts:

The people will have to be brought up in public for this. This is so ****ing depressing, it's like they are following 1984 as manual :(

Can someone please point out where anyone this fellow has been harassing someone? Or is it one of those things where they believe they are guilty of harassment so it must be true?

 

In any case, the reaction these people have to anyone who doesn't tow the party line is quite telling.

LOL. Nice to know that I've damaged gaming by boycotting corrupt sites and writing e-mails to Gawker advertisers(the same Gawker that helps spread celebrity nudes and stolen screenplays). I should've called 10,000+ people harassers without proof, smeared the gaming community, and just dealt with the rampant collusion and corruption instead.

In fairness, they are pretty dreamy.  Even as a heterosexual male, I'm finding it hard to resist.

I am really getting a kick out of this IGDA drama going on. Every time they attempt a mass ban/block they seem to hit a few very vocal people who are innocent of all this. Who really thought banning people for following GG people was going to work? I mean KFC... The Colonel is the leader of the patriarchy. That was the first thought that crossed my mind. I am glad I am not on Twitter. I said to myself just last week, "On second thought, let's not go to Twitter. It tis a silly place."

 

I don't agree with Milo on a fair many topics, but watching him troll is like watching a world class artist paint. Very fascinating.

 

I also saw some discussion (I can't find it again for the life of me. So take it with a grain of salt if you would like) of certain media gentlemen talking about AAA publishers buying them escorts. If true, I have to chuckle. No, buying a "journalist" sexual favors isn't coloring their coverage of your product at all. It is a 100% ethical business transaction. Rolls eyes. Also, to discuss it on Twitter is pretty boneheaded. Could have been a false flag, though. Still, hilarious.

 

Edit - also, a few weeks back Tim Schaefer had Double Fine throw a party, and now they have to lay off 12 people. I really think he is trying to ensure that no one trusts him ever again with money.

Wait, what? The dude can't finish a crowdfunded game and decides the best use of funds isn't keeping people employed but throwing a party? I'd laugh if it wasn't so damn sleazy.

I would like it noted that I quite open to being bribed with escorts if the outcome is a 5 star rating for yet more FIFA or CoD.

 

Anyone who buys those games is - as the poet said - "ordained to be sold".

Just to lay out a bit of a timeline on it:

 

In September Spacebase DF-9 is cancelled by Double Fine. Which I thought looked like it had potential.

Early November Tim Schafer throws a big industry party. Phil Fish is the DJ.

This week 12 employees get walking papers.

I don't think they've thought of much at all really. Their actions show, at best a lack of thought concerning consequences.

I tried a souce made out of one ghost pepper. I almost slammed my fist through the wall by the pain that it caused. It was not a burning sensation, just pain like a thousands nail punctioning your tongue. 

 

5 of those raw? good luck.
