Journalism and sexism in the games industry

Recommended Posts

I'm hearing Twitter rumblings that Polygon is trying to take on PewDiePie? Quick google search brought nothing but I didn't really know what search terms to use.

 

Either way, are they INSANE?

 

 

Just this: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B8oel60CUAEKg6j.jpg

 

Basically it's just them using dramatic language for the sake of clickbait.

 

 

Also in the interest of showing there's harassment (or "harassment" if you will in the case of anonymous tweets) from both sides, someone made a compilation vid:

Is your mom hot? It may explain why guys were following her ?

Are the dyed hair and the glasses part of a mandated uniform?

So it's actually a defense mechanism?

 

 

Who knows, maybe from their perspective it is...

 

From my perspective, it's a warning sign that says "Poisonous. Do not engage."

No idea if related or not, but I thought it was funny. Also I haven't posted in this new thread here yet, which I have now done. What a productive day this is.

The 'focus' isn't on 'Zoe'. That's already been debunked.

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!

I noticed a few times already that people seem to like to refer to her as "jewkeesian" or similar. Guess people are idiots.

The bigotry outside, the idea that she is only doing what she does for money is obvious.

In my experience, the usual response is "go back to /pol/".

the moment women start to demand equal parity as earth drillers i will support them, for now I am ignoring both extremes. BTW, why is this still going, like 99% of normal populace is not even caring about this.

 

Ignoring attention whores is the best remedy for them. The moment you start arguing with them you give them legitimacy

It's an old video from around when GamerGate started and it isn't game related, but the rhetoric used against comic book fans being sexist is exactly the same as gamers being sexist.
