So doesn't that make it just "Fall"? Kind of a dumb name for a game...

What is "real sexism?" What is "fake sexism?"

Real Sexism = 1) a woman gamer not being able to play on a server without getting propositioned, harassed,spoken dirty to, etc. without it being solicited 2) a woman game developer getting asked "what are YOU doing making games?!?" or being condescended to because of her gender and so on...

Fake sexism = most anything that comes out of Sarkeesian's piehole, or any of the fabricated controversies by the likes of Zoey Quinn and hypocritical moralizing asshole journalists like at Kotaku, RPS, etc...

What was being done to end real sexism in gaming?

Nothing, because people like you have cried wolf too many times to be listened to when you happen to decry what may be a real case of sexism. Crazy as it may sound, male gamers don't like being told repeatedly they are shit based on the actions of a few immature twits by hypocrites, liars, and misguided white-knights. You know, people like you, who paradoxically judge all male gamers based on the actions of a minority of rude children while telling us liars and phonies like Zoey Quinn don't represent all women in gaming. I'm not really sure I care to explain this to you AGAIN. You obviously are not hearing it or don't accept it. Either way, why do you keep asking if you don't like the answer? I don't have anything against you personally, but if and when the time comes where people like you and Sarkeesian are the majority of the gaming industry, I am indeed going to "move on to other hobbies" as you put it, since gaming will have been well and truly destroyed. Score another one for extremist nutobs, I guess.

Great write up William and sums up exactly what is wrong with this whole "debate".

Indeed. You summed up everything about this issue perfectly AND gave the shameless, self-serving "SJW's" a good shellacking to boot! (Sorry, just can't help myself!)

Bravo sir!

...The bottom line, though, is that yes, people think that games is a cesspool of misogyny, but it isn't the "SJW"s that have caused this opinion...

No, it indeed isn't. Ignrance is what made this opinion. The SJW's seize on and perpetuate the lie to score nobility points and exacerbate the problem tenfold, all the while destroying the cause of ending real sexism in gaming. Sir William absolutely nailed it.

Hence the reason it works in socialist-democratic nations.

Those Socio-democratic nations have plenty of problems themselves. While they best the US in many areas I would necessarily call them the perfect model to follow.

Anything that isn't Corporate Capitalism is Marxist. Laws should only exists to protect corporations from the government, private citizens and non-corporate entities. Ferengi Economics at its best.

Just to be clear I don't agree with the American Commitment message at all.

That's not true at all. Corporations doing government services generally do a much worse job because it all comes down to the bottom line and they cut corners everywhere and anywhere. Safety standards, infrastructure, labour laws, etc. etc. etc. are all thanks to government. They're failing now because the corporations have effectively taken over government and are systematically gutting all these things.

You are right - I meant more recently. To give an example I can tell you from experience the new government safety standards in the electrical industry are an absolute joke. It's getting so that it's near impossible to do any work. I wouldn't be surprised to find OSHA in bed with the makers of all this fandangled safety gear we are required to wear.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According to This Koch-Backed Astroturf Group.

I'm usually not too vehement a supporter of either side of an issue anymore, having become largely moderate in my 40's, but wishy-washy is not how I would describe myself. That said, I have rarely been stuck on the fence about an issue as much as I am on Net Neutrality. I hate the idea of un-regulated amoral big corporations having free reign over things, but on the flip-side, I abhor the idea of a corrupt and incompetent government sticking their hands into the internet - they ruin virtually everything they touch.

This feature should prove especially handy during big sales.

As long as they temporarily boost their own bandwidth during such times, otherwise there will continued hour-long blackout periods as Steam folds under the sheer load.

I wonder if at some point Madden will go Free To Play. They'll include a couple of teams like the Bucs and the Browns, and all the other teams will have to be purchased as DLC.

EA would love to do that. Only $9.99 for your favorite team!

News Comments > Phil Fish Re-Quits Gaming

From the first article:

When it’s time to be a whistleblower, people will demand proof. It only makes sense. When no notable media sources provide this proof, the Internet’s fifth estate will snap to action and investigate for themselves. The investigation is hard, and it takes time. The proof comes in the form of links and images and text. As a result, people often have these reactions: “Could’ve been fake”, “Looks sketchy”, “I meant from a real source!” This is the fundamental problem with whistleblowing in the journalism industry. The journalists themselves have cornered the market on “legitimate sources” and “trustworthiness”. So when some Internet nobody rushes in to oppose them, their proof is never good enough.

If the “most trusted source” should happen to screw up, you’ll need to provide trustworthy proof of the incident. But if that proof doesn’t come from the “most trusted source”, who’s gonna believe it? That’s the catch-22 of journalistic whistleblowing. That’s why this has been an uphill battle for the people trying to indict Kotaku—a once beloved site—for its corruption.

That’s what’s so frustrating about all of this. We loved Kotaku, and Polygon, and VICE, and their “independent voices” in this otherwise-unbearable media environment. We came to trust them, and that trust doesn’t come easy. Only after we came to trust them did we read their articles faithfully, view their links as legitimate, and accept their messages as truth.

The people supporting the indie devs in this battle will look at a single piece of evidence and say: “Fake!” Those who stick around to look at a few more pieces of evidence say: “Well… they definitely could have altered these.” When hundreds of pieces of evidence from different sources and sites, from different people with different opinions, and from Zoe herself are gathered; dismissing the evidence as “fake” requires a whole new kind of zeal.

Yep.

Holy shit, you accepted Kotaku as some kind of bastion of integrity and truth? KOTAKU??

I... I don't even...

Unfortunately many gamers do. Or did, before this mess. If Kotaku is successful in their silencing campaign, they may still be.

So when you go charging into an argument foaming at the mouth about feminism, social justice, and political correctness, people that have a moderate view of those things are going to think that you are batshit crazy/a dick.

Not really the case anymore. To a great many moderate people those words have taken on negative connotations. Blame the extremists. Vocal minority or not, they hijacked your causes as they are so apt to do.

I think you illustrated the phenomenon I was trying to convey in which extremists hijack a cause and ruin it for the ones who genuinely meant well in the beginning. 'Feminism' is now synonymous with belligerent anti-masculinism thanks to the extremists.

Personally I don't like the term "social justice" for the same reason I don't like people like Sarkeesian and Quinn. They take a legitmate issue and agendize it to the point that the goal of a movement and/or meaning of a term mutates into something it was never intended to be. I like the idea of equal justice and treatment for everyone in society. But the term "social justice" has been used and abused by the "Social Justice Warriors" to the point that it has become a negative term for many. That's why it really fits in my mind. They don't stand for actual social justice. They satnd for their own warped vision of what they think justice should be.

The "If your not a feminist you're a misogynist" quote comes to mind.
