Striving for a workplace free from sexism and harassment... a bad thing according to many posters here.
Glad I don't work with y'all.

Likewise. With your head so far up your ass and mounted on a high horse, you couldn't follow instructions for shit...

They are not striving for anything, they are doing the same virtual signal BS to make everyone thing they are doing something (same shit management always does when they say you should speak up, then you get black balled for doing so...).

99.randommadeupdecimalplace of people don't need some femminazi to tell them not to do dumb shit because almost all people are sensible enough to know where the lines are. It's the small % that a company can deal with directly (and without begging for SJW brownie points publicly) that cause problems and that makes it a real obvious and easy problem to address.

And just in general, yes, rape jokes are hilarious. Listen to Chapelle's "walk it off" bit at some point at the expense of men. Still gives me chuckles to this day exactly because it's a trite reaction to such a horrid thing. We laugh in the face of horror because to do otherwise would make us sad, stunted individuals. You know, the permanently offended who blanch because of "manspreading" (THE HORROR!!!)


Ok, see, here's a guy that's never taken a ride on the subway in NYC (why do so many people that have never been on the subway have such strong opinions on manspreading?), and has never worked in a major corporate office.

Seriously, "feminazi?" Are you a stereotype from the 1990s? In your biographical movie, are you played by David Spade with two popped collars?

He didn't really have superior tech. I honestly want to know how you'd combat a Predator drone. Seriously, what would you do? How does this play out in your head?

I'm also still waiting for a definition of a well-regulated militia.
I repeat:
"A well regulated militia": In working order, able bodied men trained in the use of modern weapons. The citizenry. Again, plainly stated in the debates for ratification.

The superior tech comment was specifically addressing folks that make the argument about "well, they never envisioned machine guns" etc. Which is obvious bullshit.

Your drone comment is on-point. How does one resist a superior force? Guerrilla tactics. Are you saying Afghanistan is a win for U.S. forces or is it, more likely, where "empires go to die". Do you automatically assume that fire-pissing hard charging Servicemen/women will side with you when you choose to try and implement confiscation? Think again.

The debates for ratification don't hold any legal bearing. Your definition also lacks any mention of the word "regulated." You're the one that pointed out how specific the founding fathers were. Why did they include the word "regulated" if you are just going to ignore it?

Lastly, you can't compare Afghanistan, where we have a small amount of troops on the ground (relatively), to attacking your own goddamn country in your own goddamn country. That's patently ridiculous.

You know how people say 'don't you have something better to do?' Well Elon definitely has something better to do, many things in fact, many important things like saving the world from pollutants and building Martian bases and creating efficient underground tunnel systems. So why is he feeding the trolls for? Just ignore them, they're obviously trying to goad him just for their own amusement. The last thing Elon needs during production hell is taking time out for a court case if the guy does decide to sue, so the less he mentions it the less likely such a case would occur.
The thing is that, in this case, Musk is the troll.

Seriously. It makes me wonder how many of them have ever held a professional, white-collar job, which game development most definitely is even if the uniform is less suit and tie and more hoodie and cargo shorts.

You can always tell who has, right?
I mean, we've had a steady stream of people saying they quit because of this culture, but hey, it's just jokes. It isn't hurting anyone. Rape jokes in the goddamn recruiting docs? How could that hurt a company?

CthulhuFan wrote on Aug 29, 2018, 20:13:
The type of weaponry used to oppose tyranny was quite literally irrelevant to the authors. They did not say muskets, cannons and brass knuckles; they said arms and for good reason, quite simply because they did not know what the future held for progress. In the arguments for ratification this was made plain.

Would you argue that the colonists would just lay down and accept taxation and religious persecution etc simply based on the fact that King George had superior tech?

He didn't really have superior tech. I honestly want to know how you'd combat a Predator drone. Seriously, what would you do? How does this play out in your head?

I don't really compare Skyrim/Oblivion to The Witcher 3. Oblivion is one of my favorite games, and was just about atmosphere. Nowhere did The Witcher 3 match the atmosphere of exploring some of the ruins in Oblivion, hearing skeletons creaking in the distance. Makes some sense, given that it's first person vs third person, and that it's a blank slate vs a well defined character.

On the whole, TW3 was the better game, but they're different enough that I think there's plenty of room for both.

One other thing I wanted to mention is how sometimes sites will intentionally do dueling opinions: "Why X is game of the year!" followed shortly by "Why X sucks mah balls!"

Could that have been the case here?

That's what they're claiming. Looking into it, the article isn't THAT bad from that perspective. But it's still dumb. Preordering something before we have benchmarks is kind of stupid. But there's validity to buying the newer card, if you have the money for it. If the 1080 and the 2070 are the same price, there's probably good reason to get the 2070. But, until we have benchmarks, there's probably better reason to just hold off. You'll be able to find these things without preordering.

I seem to remember Tom's being wholly discredited back around like '04 or '06. I never use it for anything real - occasional troubleshooting Googles send me to their forums (never helpful), otherwise I just really like their hierarchies and avoid anything else.

Can't find anything that's lining up with my belief, though. I could be misremembering, but I thought most abandoned it ages ago.

This summer has just been the worst. Super humid all throughout, and somehow always the highest temperature and humidity during the week (when I'm walking to work, so I'm soaked when I get here), then cold and either overcast yet still humid, or just rainy on weekends, when I'd actually be able to go somewhere and cool off.

We will soon all miss the days where american companys were pro american values and pro american bill of rights.

Its a race to the bottom and not in a good way.

Its open borders but not open internet. got to love the way lefties think. mainly because its all about votes, power and destroying america. illegal aliens good, non leftist controlled speech bad.

Though in this instance its supposedly "anti-trump" rhetoric. For the most part its leftists who dont give a flying fart about the constitution and hate the USA who are causing most of the problems. even in this referenced article the focus at the beginning is on "extremists" who no doubt this leftist author thinks are only people on the non Marxist side of the fence.

anything a leftist does is perfectly excused because everyone who is not a leftist is a "nazi racist".

look into the southern poverty law center and soros funded internet mobs and how they are a direct attack on Americans freedom.


Dude, you literally railed AGAINST open internet with Net Neutrality. You personally. You, as in the guy posting here, kept calling an open internet "trash," and yet now you want it because Alex Jones was banned for violating rules by harassing the parents of dead children?

The only people being banned are harassers, not "conservatives," unless those are one and the same. Weirdly, to some of you, they are.

Dude, everything you just posted is alt-right. It's literal alt-right bedrock. It's in the alt-right Bible.

You're alt-right. Next, you'll be complaining about antifa. You're defending Sargon and Peterson - that's de facto alt-right.

Or a populace that takes control and thinks a 227 year old law is responsible for needless deaths.

I'm curious, the founders considered this well, what would you change and why?

"A well regulated militia": In working order, able bodied men trained in the use of modern weapons.

You blame the weapons, I blame the governments.

I mean, for one, they had no clue what the future of weaponry was. They neither foresaw automatic weapons, or really any weapon that would let an individual mow down 58 people from a hotel room, nor did they see advancements in government technology. You tell me what a well regulated militia of civilians with AR-15s will do against the modern US military with tanks and, predominantly, unmanned drones that can take you out without you having a clue you're being targeted, all without having a single human being within 1000 miles of you.

Furthermore, it's pretty vague, no? What does "well regulated" mean? Does it mean the government is regulating private militias? State government? Some other body? And how does it work? In our military, weapons are usually kept in lockers, does this mean our towns should hold everyone's guns in a locker in case they're needed? Does any of this have any bearing on the right to carry in public, or conceal and carry?

Sure. And this is a perfectly reasonable take. Without looking, I'm sure you were an Alex Joneser.

Ad hominem fallacy, not addressing subject.

Yet you think not calling everyone a pedo is letting MSNBC tell you what to think.


You get that you're not really showing off any intelligence with your posting here, right? And not making coherent arguments? Perhaps you're an intelligent guy who thinks deeply about things, but you come across as a guy with an axe to grind against society, for reasons unknown, who likes to throw things together even when they have nothing to do with one another.

If you're interested in Sargon, who has definitely harassed people, to the point that even Joe Rogan called him out on it, and Jordan Peterson, who isn't using science but hiding racism behind pseudo-science, sorry, you're not liberal. You're being indoctrinated into the alt right. This is how it starts. Those idiots sound reasonable via video, but if you stop and think you realize they're lunatics. They're race baiting and hiding white nationalism and dated heteronormatism behind flawed science.

It's no coincidence they're poster speakers for the alt right and incels. That their audience is almost entirely undersexed, undereducated, underemployed white males. They're gateway alt right. They say the same as the rest, but try to tone down their rhetoric. The media didn't just decide these guys have a rotten message - their message is rotten. I just don't get how someone can say "I'm a liberal, but that Jordan Peterson guy is a-ok. Life really was better with women barefoot in the kitchen! "

In any case, that guy just listed where 80% of our population lives.

Jordan Peterson is a lunatic, and absolutely fuels hate speech. He's argued that women were never oppressed in history, that there's no such thing as Islamophobia because it's rational to discriminate against Muslims, that the bedrock of a decent society is a heteronormative two-parent family, etc. None of this is hate speech itself, but it absolutely fuels it. It gets quoted in hate speech, it has led to violence against his critics by those turning it towards hate speech, and he knows this. He's careful about what he says to walk a line but give ammunition. He's a horrid person.

Also, c'mon, "REEEE." Are you a GamerGater? Will you call everyone "cucks" next? As pointed out, you're also focusing solely on the extremes. Stop reading TumblrInAction and focus on what's actually happening in society, not some fringe existing just on Twitter.

Exception, not rule. And I don't think we're comparable to Brazil in many ways other than gun deaths.

Here are the countries of the world listed by amount of gun deaths per 100,000:
Honduras
Venezuela
El Salvador
Swaziland
Guatemala
Jamaica
Brazil
Colombia
Panama
The United States
Uruguay
Montenegro
Philipines
South Africa
Paraguay
Mexico
Argentina
Barbados
Costa Rica
Peru
Nicaragua
Serbia
Finland


Do you see how high we are? And how far down we need to go in order to reach another nation with comparable institutions to ours?

I think rape jokes are awful and really just dumb to make. I've said it to some of the people here that routinely make them.

However, he made these quite some time before Disney hired him. He apologized for them before Disney hired him. This wasn't a Roseanne situation where he made them while under contract, defended them repeatedly, and had none of his coworkers stick up for him. He made them a long time ago, disavowed them and said he felt they were inexcusable and he was embarrassed about who he was when he made them, and virtually all of those working with him came out and said he'd changed from then and it wasn't representative of who he was today.

If we don't let people have jobs after they repent and grow, we can be in trouble. How people handle things from the past matter, as does who sticks up for them.

We'll see what this means for the likes of Deadpool, which certainly loves its rape jokes but is now a Disney property (keep in mind, also marketed to a slightly different audience than GotG.)

Also interesting that Disney has no issue working with Rob Lowe today, a man once found himself in the center of a sex scandal for having sex with a 16 year old.
