News Comments > Out of the Blue
16. Re: Out of the Blue Aug 24, 2014, 12:25 Prez
 
I try to stay deliberately ignorant when pop-culture things like the "Ice Bucket Challenge" start getting mentioned everywhere from CNN to Facebook or going viral on youtube (I actually stayed ignorant of what "going viral" meant for the longest time). But alas, my curiosity got the better of me and I googled it. I don't really get what the fuss is about, but whatever, it's for charity.

Thunderf00t enters the fray: http://youtu.be/9RQIpwi-K9s

Okay, all heterosexual males go to the 8:22 point. You're welcome.

But just to keep things on topic, lets talk about actual sexism in gaming versus what the SJW's see as the issue. While I have always thought of Beamer as one of the misguided SJW's tha have been talked about so much in the last few days, I have to say I don't find him as dangerous as a true SJW like the blithering idiot Sarkeesian or now this rotten Zoe character. He does bring up interesting points of discussion even if I disagree with him more often than not.

He said:
What bugs me isn't that Zoe clearly seems to need mental help, but that so many here dismiss an entire, huge issue due to this, and in their dismissal seem to just verify the problem.

Basically we ("we" meaning those who are NOT Social Justice Warriors) are in a no-win situation. If we say ANYTHING along the lines of "this Zoe/5 guys mess basically validates what we have been saying all along" or that it illustrates the SJW hypocricy in the gaming press we are at best labeled 'head-in-the-sand' deniers of a great injustice or at worst classless misogynist pigs. But if we stay quiet, we basically are allowing the SJW's to further infect our hobby with their line of utter garbage. So speaking out against reprehensible shit like the filth spewing out of Sarkeesian's piehole or the nonsense this Zoe character has been pulling is, in the average SJW's mind, validation of the crap these nutjobs are pushing to the detriment of all gamers, male and female. What SJW's don't understand is that we view fighting SJW's and their toxic, infectious bullshit and fighting sexism in gaming as two separate things. I won't say that there aren't some here who deny any sexism exists at all, because there undoubtedly is, but many of us do but prioritize the issue far FAR lower because we try to keep it in perspective. SJW's want it to be the foremost topic of discussion in gaming at all times, which to me begs the question how could it still be called the "gaming" industry if we stop talking about games in any context other than which SJW is offended by which game today?

No, I absolutely think sexism is a problem in the gaming industry, just not a very big problem. One that will sort itself out for the most part if the statistics like the one in Blue's "ETC." section, which shows women outnumbering young boys in gamer ranks today, are any indication. Sooner or later some of those women will want to be game designers badly enough to enter the fray, and if true sexism is keeping them from reaching that dream then I'll be the first to speak out against it. So far though, it's just not happening to any degree that I can see. Do women designers currently have to put up with some boorishness by some less classy males in the industry? Undoubtedly. Is it right? Hell no. Often times in history one class or another has been forced to rise above and overcome such obstacles, paving the way for removal of said obstacles. I know rational reasonable, and most importantly NON-SJW-minded people are working to change that, and I applaud them. What is hurting the cause of sexual equality in gaming the most is the very thing the SJW's stand for because in it's utterly ridiculous extremes, it turns off rational thinking people to the cause, thereby weakening support. In short, if people use Sarkeesian or Zoe as a catalyst to start ignoring the overall sexism issue then that is to be blamed on the likes of Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn, RPS, Polytron and Kotaku, not the average gamer. The SJW's in gaming have destroyed any chance of the sexism problem being fixed until it basically fixes itself through time and understanding. In my view of course.

I get what Creston is saying. The majority of games are seemingly made for horny 15 year old boys or summer popcorn flick movie-goers and no one else.

Can anyone seriously believe that the fact that she was screwing him had no bearing on him choosing her obscure, mostly text game to mention over the myriad more impressive indie games on Greenlight that he ignored? Not the biggest or most egregious offense in a world where innocent people get their heads lobbed off for simply trying to do their job I grant you but it is still slimy.

How does having sex do this?

I'm not sure if you are just playing devil's advocate here or if you really don't get it. Having sex doesn't do this; having sex with select individuals in the gaming press to advance your career through promoting positive press and silencing negative press about oneself (with the implication being that women can only succeed by blowing their way to success) is clearly setting back women who would rather do it the legitimate way. Doubly so when it is sone by the s0-called champion of women's rights in gaming. Surely you can understand this?

Hell, any time even Jade Raymond is mentioned here the conversation turns to her looks, and then it turns to at least one person saying she's unqualified and only got where she got for sleeping her way there.

Very true. In fairness, it's hard not to mention her looks because of how pretty she is but personally I don't doubt her qualifications at all. I think it's awesome a beautiful lady is involved the videogames industry and has rose to a high position. In such a male-heavy industry it's great to see. She is an excellent role model for other women and she seemingly does her job with class despite the boorishness.

More links for those who wish to be entertained:

Thanks for the links, definitely have to agree with the person at the first one. Zoe Quinn and her defenders have set back women in gaming substantially.

Agreed. Far more so than what us supposed mysoginist cretin gamers are purported to have done by the tiresome white-knighting retards at places like Rock Paper Shotgun and Kotaku.

I'd think "Waaaah, I can't even make a video game without guys calling me a stupid cunt" is a bit more valid than those.

Except when (as the video illustrates) the shit is orchestrated so the narcissistic SJW's can claim the moral high ground to bolster their faux noble image like this Zoe clown. I suspected she was full of shit with her first "look at me, the professional victim" bullshit piece.

Of course BL 1 and 2 had problems, but given how much I love each one (as evidenced by my combined play time - yikes!) I simply can't bother to find fault with games I so gleefully enjoyed for so long. I for one hope they keep right on making them.
