Op Ed

Kotaku - Nerds and Male Privilege.
The idea that perhaps the way women are portrayed in fandom is aleetle sexist is regularly met with denials, justifications and outright dismissal of the issue. So regularly, in fact, that there's a Bingo card covering the most common responses. Part of the notion of male privilege in fandom is that nothing is wrong with fandom and that suggestions that it might benefit from some diversity is treated as a threat.

But what is that threat, exactly?

It's interesting that some people here absolutely revile corporations for trying to get richer when it is something that offends them personally but it's ok when it offends anyone else.

I know, right? How dare people actually get upset about the things they actually care about. For shame!

By and large, though, this is a board unwilling to make any sacrifice and unwilling to admit anything it does is wrong. "I don't steal games, I copyright infringe, and it doesn't harm anyone."

Really? You're saying that the majority of people here not only pirate software, but claim that it's not wrong to do so? Maybe you should look beyond the few people who make that argument to the larger community.

"I don't demean women or other minorities, I make jokes. They're funny and no one should be offended."

Sure, and by all means point out where anyone has claimed they only "make jokes" and that people shouldn't be offended. Take as long as you want to look.
