Man, some of this stuff is so dumb. These conversations are absolutely ridiculous most of the time. So much intellectual dishonesty, cognitive dissonance, lack of reading comprehension skills..
It's frustrating.
"i support gamergate 'cause gaming journo corruption affects me"
"then you support a misogynist pedophile hate campaign. kthx blocked :)"

Christ.

And now that the movement has become much larger I suspect we'll start seeing even more nasty, criminal acts on the part of trolls and crazy people. We've got alleged CP now. What do you bet will be next? Vandalism? Assault?

Forgive me, but I can't tell if this thread has turned into slow speed accident lulz, or if there is still some real point to be made here.

Several conversations happening at once.

I think that's the core of /v/'s argument.

They have no issue with feminism necessarily, but they take exception with a movement being represented by frauds that are, frankly, putting their proverbial dicks in everyone's pie. Anita Sarkeesian was able to submit input on Mirror's Edge 2. What ****ing business does she have doing that? It's crazy, these people, man... and I suspect many developers are simply caught between a rock and a hard place what with having to make games and having to bend to the will of ever-oppressive publishing houses with an eye on social media rather than gaming.

Anyway, I am pretty much done with following this [for health reasons].


It is for this reason that I (and probably some others) offer some serious points with a hefty dose of humor and irreverence. :)

Am I a bad person if I don't really care what's going on right now?

Wonder when the government will actually get involved and whose side they'll end up investigating.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Also even if these people didn't do anything wrong, these games journos. What the heck do they have rocks for brains? How can they be so bad at PR?

Also, thank God for Jim.

Ah, yeah. The blockbot thing. I heard about that the other day.
Absolutely ridiculous. No discussion required, guys. Just let these gents tell you what to think and buy. No big deal.
