Operation: Matriarchy Born

Busy Buka makes yet another new game announcement, for an upcoming first-person shooter called Operation: Matriarchy in development at MADia, due in first quarter 2005, in the first game press release we can ever recall that uses the phrase "the weaker sex." Here goes:
A planet-wide epidemic caused by an extraterrestrial virus totally changed all women of the planet of Velian. Their bodies transformed to become parts of collective intelligence, presumably controlled by some non-humanoid creatures. The Velian men proved to be resistant to the virus, but they lost their status of free intelligent beings and only existed as suppliers of biomaterial for further gene experimentation and as parts of complex biomechanical systems. The society became now a kind of matriarchal hive.
The Galactic Federation lost several dozens of transports due to enemy attacks in the second half of the 24th century. A deep analysis of the situation made it clear that the aggressor comes from the Velian star system. It is there that the Federation is sending an expeditionary corps to destroy the hostile civilization that threatens the very existence of the human race and to investigate the fate of the missing colonists.
You are a trooper of the government army sent with the expeditionary force to attack Velian. As you accomplish missions given to you at the headquarters, you get new opportunities in selection of weapons and military equipment. Each mission will also get you closer to the secret of the origin of the Velian anomaly of the human race.

*Key Features:*

    · The hero can use several types of the armored space suit for short-time flights with diverse attached implements;
    · Your main enemies will be the mutated representatives of the weaker sex;
    · Support of multiplayer gaming via LAN and the Internet;
    · Terrific 3D action in the future of our Universe;
    · 16 types of fantastic deadly weapons;
    · Over 20 intensive levels;
    · Rag doll technology and true damage system (the location of the hit affects the damage type).

Weaker sex? That demonstrates, if nothing else, exactly what their cultural ideas on women are.

It's unfortunate that societies and groups exist who still think like this.

This is a huge faux pas.

This is the same group that had a very strange press release recently correct?

If so, English is not their primary language. They really need to hire someone to translate their press releases.

I gotta disagree. Sounds like the Borg mixed with System Shock...

Granted SS was good (if they're going to mimic something, at least mimic a good game), but still...

Its been proven both men and women can equally gain the same muscle mass, so this statement is untrue. But how a woman builds that much muscle by scrubbing dishes never made much sense to me.

How does Buka start all these game projects? Are they a publisher or developer? And if they have the cash to make 10 games at once, why can't they hire a decent translator?

It's called The Real World. They're Russians; they do not feel constrained by bullshit, politically correct garbage like so many gullible Americans. Political correctness--and it's bastard child Newspeak--are luxuries of a wealthy, pampered society that is insulated from the harsh realities of survival. Go travel the world and visit the backwaters of few Third World countries like I did when I was younger, and you'll quickly lose your silly, paper-thin skin that gets prickled over pointless semantics.

Short version: Grow up.

Theres places out there that accept slavery and genocide as well. These are all parts of the real world does that mean we should accept them?

Your idea of growing up is giving up. I'd much rather stay naive in your eyes and not give up hope for a just society in the future. Pointing out things like misogyny and racism is part of that.

#16, it's not so much that we missed it, it's that apparently we don't think that exusing a publisher comitting misogyny as an action to "generate public attention" is as acceptable an action as you seem to believe.

Are you so frustrated that no one commented on your "insight" that you felt the need to post the same thing again? If so, then please accept me as the forgiving Jesus who sacrifices himself so that you may be appeased and noticed, that your demand for attention may be appeased, and so that the rest of us may talk about more important and interesting things.

I am simply that generous.

Apathy and ignorance can also be born "of a wealthy, pampered society that is insulated from the harsh realities of survival."

Where I'm from (Earth), females ARE the weaker sex. And when they say "weaker sex" they mean physically weaker, not weaker in some abstract emotional or psychological capacity, which is what the majority of you seem to have taken from the statement. A statement of fact is not misogyny.

Its been proven both men and women can equally gain the same muscle mass, so this statement is untrue.

I'd like some sources for this "proof". Maybe men and women can gain muscle mass at the same rate, but they don't gain the same amount of muscle mass. This should be pretty self-evident.

Its just meant to be a pun you fucking idiots, because it's probably going to be more than obvious they are not weaker.

As in, "oh look female mutants, the weaker sex." As one of said mutants rips a bulkhead in half and then throws it at you.
