And even though I can see reasons to dislike "third wave feminism," can someone--anyone--please tell me how they have been hurt by it? Can you tell me what form of power it holds over you and your life?

Well, you ask for an honest answer and my only answer can thus be that feminism (defined by the core values) has only positively influenced my life so far, many female authors write great (and very perverted) books that I enjoy. And one of my most favorite NWN modules as made by a women

yet 3rd gen feminism is responsible for making several communities highly toxic to feminist views in general, and more importantly has made the Internet more toxic for females. Me not being one it's not my job to complain about that all that much. But I can still have a dislike for 3rd gen feminism (and it's spreaders) all the same

And you also have to realize that my posting about it does not mean I am hysteric about feminism, but rather that I strongly dislike a certain brand of it. And yes, 3rd gen feminism implies (in my meaning of it) a certain "brand" that is close to Identity Politics, a disease that spreads through universities currently, and imo is very damaging to the cause of feminism and (some form of) equality as a whole.

And really, when I can find more females against Feminist Frequency on youtube than for it, then you know you are not fighting for a feminist cause. Which is probably why so many really hate her. I just don't like her Which maybe is just as bad, considering I never met her, but I certainly don't want to meet her either. It would damage my gamer cred ,p

Especially because humanism is the opposite of feminism.

Which youtube video did you get that from.

You know, instead of quoting the first sentence, you could have read the 2nd one (Where I quoted WIKI for specific reason) and realized I just explained to you that humanism is against ideological thinking. And believe it or not, feminism is an ideology. Worse, it is an ideology that is now (3rd gen) mostly against men. Even if you could support feminism before, the kind of feminism a Zoe Quinn propagates you could never support as an humanist.

Also since you didn't ask a question I am just gonna ignore that sentence
Dude. Humanism is an ideology.

Dude. An ideology is a set of conscious and/or unconscious ideas which constitute one's goals, expectations, and actions.
Yes? Are you under the impression that humanism is not a set of ideas established by human beings? Do you think it's some natural state of being removed from human beliefs and values?

Humanism is an ideology of course, and as I explained to you it is an opposite of feminism. Feminism wants to better the situation for women. Humanism wants to better it for EVERYONE. Something that only betters the world for 1 and subjugates another can never be humanist. And this where people nowadays draw the comparison with 3rd gen feminism (And why I said that humanists might accept feminism before the 3rd gen type). Feminism before that wanted to equalize rights and allow for the same things with women as they are for men. 1st and 2nd gen feminists wanted porn for women, wanted books written by women and wanted movies made by women, they wanted to make men and women EQUAL in society, 3rd gen feminism wants to put women above males. By dictating how males write, how males make movies, and how far males can go in their art.

If you do not understand how that makes 3rd gen feminism something unacceptable to me then I can't help you. To me, 3rd gen feminism is akin to a form of censorship. And I will never accept censorship.

Especially because humanism is the opposite of feminism.

Humanism is a philosophical and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence over established doctrine or faith

Which is quite hilarious when you give that award to a person that runs "Feminist Frequency" Which is anything but a bastion for critical thinking.

That said, I did not read the article Maybe they have a good reason

Someone knows how to cut and paste from wikipedia.

Let me ask you this. When it comes to Sarkeesian, and her Gator "fans" ... which side do you think is best able to think critically?

"Best able" ? None. Both sides are entrenched in their own ideologies unable to see the other side, and unwilling to even consider the other sides point, nobody on either side will ever relent (in part because the sides are blurry and confusing as fuck) and in part because there is no common ground whatsoever.

Saarkeesian did nothing that is in any way "humanist" mainly because a humanist would ALWAYS try to initiate dialog, and NEVER placate.

You make it sound like that's an easy thing done in no time. They are probably working on a new Homeworld game behind the scenes and these are just released to help build interest in that direction while helping offset the cost of the IP. Rebuilding Cataclysm without the source code wouldn't be a picnic either.

It's already been announced that BBI is working on Homeworld Shipbreakers (previously Hardware Shipbreakers). It was already written as a prequel to Homeworld before Gearbox bought the IP. They cover this in the video too.

Theyarecomingforyou this is still the Homeworld 2 engine, they have just upgraded it for modern graphics.

Please stop quoting trolls.


Ah yes, Shipbreakers.. a PVP rts on GROUND that has nothing to do with Homeworld except the name. Exactly zero people that wanted Homeworld 3 are hyped about THAT.

Besides, I never said it is easy to remake Cataclysm, I said Gearbox acts as if it's impossible. Which is complete bullshit and typical bullshit at that, coming from Gearbox

That aside, being called a Troll is like a badge of honor

And you think you know all this how? Last I checked, nobody has heard or seen anything about the game since it got retooled after Gearbox and BBI started working together.

There was a time I believe Hardware Shipbreakers was also intended to be a browser based game. Yea not any more. So whatever you think you know about Homeworld Shipbreakers other than the name and who is working on it, you can throw the rest out the window.

Actually I am hyped about it, whatever form it may take, and have been since long before they were able to use the IP again.

You need some patience. It's been what, about a year since Homeworld even got it's life back and you are already whining about no Homeworld 3? /facepalm

They didn't say it was impossible. Not even close. In fact he says they could, but it would likely not be as good as the Remastered collection. I don't know how you think games get made but devs don't wave magic wands and it's all done. It would be far easier for them if they had the source code.

Priority #1, get Remastered out the door and then work on the Multiplayer beta. Maybe they will get lucky and the source code will be found.


Fair enough, and as gamer obviously I will check out any game with Homeworld in the name. I am just not hyped, nor do I like (or trust) Gearbox.

And I know we are talking about at least 6 months of full blown development if they wanted to remake Cataclysm. (If ever at that point, they should probably just make Homeworld 3 for real). But Gearbox has a long history of lying, especially before any release of any kind. I don't trust trailers, gameplay or anything else from Gearbox anymore. But if they deliver a decent update of HW1 and HW2 and seriously not fuck it up (Ballistic vs RNG weapons, HW1 had ballistic hit weapons, HW2 had a rng hit chance for weapons) And they said nothing about that, which makes me very very skeptical

Hmm, while there are a lot of partisan threads on Blues, I didn't really think this was one of them. Not sure ads vs. ad blocking is a political issue...

When it comes to uBlock it may be. uBlock is the "kill everything" solution when it comes to blocking. And that means website owners hate it, they don't care about adblocking, but they do care when you break their analytics which directly feed back to page rank and assorted.

I'm not incredibly fond of the entire idea of e-sports in the first place, but if there's any one thing that stands out about the potential it has it's that short of an outright disability nobody has an unfair advantage over another based on any physical criteria.

Unless pros these days have learned to whack the spacebar with their penis in tournaments or something for an APM advantage, I guess I don't follow it closely enough to know.


Posts like these would make sense if there wasn't two separate tournaments.

I think many organizers, especially just a few years ago, wouldn't allow trans gamers on the team at all. But they are allowing it now and unfortunately have put restrictions on it to prevent abuse. It sounds ridiculous but maybe they've already encountered side switching not done in good faith (for lack of a better phrase). Obviously the solution is to just do away with the separate tournaments or if there's opposition to that make a third co-ed tournament.

EDIT: You know what, the "gay" part of this rule is really weird. I was initially not comprehending that I guess. I hope that's a translation error.

Why the fuck are there 2 tournaments anyway? I dont see how being female, male, transgender gay, straight, shit-faced, etc. makes a difference in a fucking E-sport!

Well, I wasn't kidding about not knowing much about it...I figured "all feminine tournament" meant the tournament was only using female characters. I really don't follow e-sports at all.

On the other hand, I'm not sure it changes anything... I guess it didn't occur to me that they would separate the field between male and female participants for e-sports when there's no real difference to give an advantage to justify it.

Yeah, I didn't read the article either, and had the same problem. Why are they having separate gender-based tournaments to begin with?

Then you missed nothing, because the article doth not say!

Surprised no one has mentioned ublock. All the goodness of Adblock, less of the bloat, and fully open source. I've been using it for weeks on Chrome and Safari.

uBlock blocks way more than just ads by default, it's not even COMPARABLE to adblock, uBlock is more like Disconnect

So why would anyone mention that as an Adblock alternative? Adblock has ease of use functions that allow you to whitelist specific frames on a site and thus unblock things from overzealous filter list expressions, uBlock does not. Though it's good block-everything in paranoia mode, it broke too much of my Internet for me to even bother. Your mileage will obviously vary depending on what sites you visit regularly. Using uBlock for example completely broke videosift for me. And that's just not acceptable

Remaking a game without the source is a significantly more difficult undertaking than updating an existing game with a new engine. Do you know exactly what the speed, turn rates, damage, fire rates, AI behaviours of the beast are? Neither do Gearbox.

So yeah, they could remake it, but it would be a big job and then people like you would just whinge when they charged full price for it.

I already whinge when they ask for any price considering that I own both HW1 and HW2 already, why pay for a SLIGHTLY upgraded graphics in the SAME missions? I wanted Homeworld 3 when it comes down to it, not some silly remakes. But the dev I don't want HW3 from is most definitely Gearbox

Anyone flying at night without an attitude indicator earned that award even before the selfie. And if there was such a device on board, there is no fucking way you can ever lose "spatial awareness" unless the pilot was on drugs or a retard.

I think there is more to this story, a selfie itself even at full night with flash, does not ever make you blind. And even if you are blind as a stone, someone in the cockpit surely can still see the AI, which is a pretty damn important device when doing night flights.
