So... uh... anyone wanna take a wild, flailing stab at some kind of intellectual discourse regarding this current issue? It's pretty deep and involved so I doubt the current peanut gallery would.

Maybe get into it with some of the Lette's Respect girls? Are there any of these mysogynerds or SJWs lurking around here with a chip on their shoulders they wanna burn?

Aaaannnd.... GO!

short version:  

bitches has been bein bitches, and no one was tryin to do anything about it til recently.  

guy bitches, that is.  not bitch bitches.  the bitch bitches are now bitchin out the guy bitches that were the initial problem.  

 

shorter version:  we americans gotta make a big fuckin controversy outta fuckin everything.  [note the flh forum...]  

  

this is one of those great situations that could be solved overnight, if everybody just agreed to stop acting like assholes.  

so the only thing im certain of, is that it wont be solved overnight.  

  

 

[edit]  yes, squiggles, thats all you had to do.

Just more bullshit for women to rag over, but hey at least they can all pretend they're making a difference and politically informed by hash tagging the latest nonsense that's a "big" deal.

Yep, it's true. Sick of every time this shit happens it becomes a boo-hoo big deal. Anything involving women always has to become some sort of thing but things like the negative male stereotypes that saturate movies, sitcoms, and commercials just as an example, never get talked about by anyone except people like me. Who then get labeled sexist for not bleating with the rest of the crowd for female supremecy.

[Hey Miklo, if you feel talked down to all the time, then maybe if you *stood on the dictionary you used to spell 'condescending'  instead of *eating it, you might be able to participate in conversations at the grown-ups table]

Actually folks, at this stage of the event, we have our choice of debating THREE aspects of the fallout

1.Trashing "Zoe Quinn" for her supposedly slutty ways and tactics

2.The feminist/Marxist contingent that has gotten into the gaming discussion even though none of them like or play games but still want to tell everyone else (including girl gamers) how disgusting they and their hobby is.

3. The newly uncovered revelations of how fully corrupt journalism actually is and how it is secretly making decisions for us rather than just reporting on them.

I spent the better part of an evening reading and watching about all this and it is moving every single day while getting *no coverage on network news outlets beyond the net. Admittedly, there's a *lot to have to go through but this could turn into the debate of our generation... maybe.

I just thought I'd bring the discussion here cuz I know the forum isn't gonna shy away from saying some real shit on it.

Here, this might be a more attractive explanation of it all that I found (that isn't about this Zoe chick):

The only part of Gamergate I actually paid attention to was the fact that Quinn attacked The Fine Young Capitalists, which was ALL ABOUT getting women to become more involved in the video game making process, and as a result, 4chan, /v/, and reddit basically funded the entire game. To the point where they both created designs in the game. I love 4chan simply for the fact that most of it exists just to fuck with people. /v/ was considered a den of misogyny and they come up with a character like Vivian? Shit's cash.

What are some examples? Have you heard of the Bechdel Test?

The Bechdel Test, sometimes called the Mo Movie Measure or Bechdel Rule is a simple test which names the following three criteria: (1) it has to have at least two women in it, who (2) who talk to each other, about (3) something besides a man.

 It's crazy how many films fail this test, and what types of movies do.

Honestly, one of the biggest male/female issues we have in this country (maybe world?) is the issue of porn. I have no problem with porn, I think it's awesome, and I feel if men and women choose to become part of that industry then more power to them. 

The issue I have is with the fact that KIDS are watching porn and assuming that's how REAL SEX should be. It teaches men to be more violent sexually towards women and it sets an unrealistic expectation. The worst part about this is that they are being bombarded with this information at a young age, and not only is it BEFORE the receive sex education, sex education doesn't even mention it!

So please, if you have kids, talk to them about the unrealistic aspects of porn and the porn industry, because they are probably watching it already.

Home simpson, peter griffon, stan smith. Violent, stupid, lazy, perverts. Commercials where the husband cant figure a damn thing out about appliances then the wife or better yet the kids then come in and show them how its done. The fact that women frequently kick dudes in the nuts, taze them, flip them, whatever and it's done for comedic effect but violence toward woman receives nothing but negativity to the highest. Johnny bravo comes to mind. All he does is come on too strong, and boy oh boy to they show him. Stuff like that pigg.

@ltb i love you bro... but you kinda sound like a bitch... or at least as bad as the bitches "fighting for women rights"... lets not take something that happens in a cartoon like Johnny Bravo, and take it as some sort of personal offense. if you dig deep enough your gonna find almost an equal amount of "sexism" for both sides in about anything...

Lois Griffin- doesn't have a job, she stays home, cooks, and cleans all day. not exactly an example of an empowered woman.

Francine smith- she is a drunk, and a dumb blond, also no job.. still not empowered in my eyes.

Marge Simpson- about the same as the other two.

 

i'm not arguing that your wrong, just that your not completely right.

 

i think both sides of the coin need to be cleaned, or people should just get used to having a nasty ass coin. either or.

No I'm just tired of your whiny,uppity, bitch like posts. You don't possess the mental capacity to talk down to me. Go back to complaining about how the forums are not to your liking. See if more than a single fuck is given by anyone.

[@miklo-velka - Oooh, burn. You sure got me there, bro... Way tuh call back the whopping TWO posts I made on a NINE PAGE thread *I didn't start from over TWO WEEKS AGO. You mad, bro? Pfft. Oh that must be it! You're one of those people from that documentary Idiocracy that think that anyone speaking in complete sentences and can articulate themselves is faggy and (what was your vocabulary word of the day you used?) condescending. So how 'bout you go grab your sippy cup of Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator (cuz it's got what plants crave) and go get a Latte you fuckin' potato. Or better yet, take some of your own dumb advice "if it's bothering you on any given day go take a walk or something to take your mind off the FLH forum for a bit"... and I'll be sure to pass along your sentiments to @VeryTwiztedRaven as well. There. THAT was me being "condescending". (kiss kiss)]

 

Now for the rest of the adults in the room capable of carrying on a conversation and @violentdope's request, here is a very well written and referenced article (in Forbes of all places) with links to all material mentioned. It IS a long read but the story is just that twisted and convoluted that it needs it. I'd be really interested in the opinions of everyone on the deeper implications beyond the whole slut shaming aspect of this event.

I don't see an issue here.

 

I never bought a game based on a review.  EVER.
