Commented on Net Neutrality

The internet is global. If a start-up website from outside of the US relies on a large American user base, net neutrality in the US would be very important for their growth.

Another victory in maintaining a free internet.
We’ve successfully defended the Motherland against the invading hordes!

The problem is, 3rd wave feminists these days don’t actually see women as equal and only respect trans people when it’s convenient for them. They consider women weak both mentally and physically, needing of protection and guidance for salvation from the “male patriarchy”.
Any trans person who isn’t on board with feminism is ridiculed often being told “you owe us everything”. Trans women are sometimes treated as “fake women” but they are often treated favorably over trans men. They are considered “gender traitors” or “fetishizers of femininity”. Anything masculine is evil in their eyes.

3rd wave feminism are supposed to be all about “gender equality” but rarely care about it in practice. They seem to think gender is some kind of choice and that some people choose incorrectly. Most of them use feminism as a smoke screen to hide their ill intent. They use feminism to justify the techniques they use to get rid of people who are in their way.

Feminists are some of the most sexist people currently living in the first world.

Brief history of GG:
>Collusion, intimidation, and cronyism in gaming media and parts of the indie scene
>Gamers call them out on it – get censored all over the place
>Games media: “Gamers are dead!”
>SJWs: “Gamers are Hitler, ISIS, and Fox News rolled into one!”
>Games: u wot m8?
>WAR! – all kinds of gamers that previously hated each other unite
>Even some people who don’t want to take sides are pushed into either side
>Smarter games media outlets update ethics policies – even the Federal Trade Commission updates its policies
>Dumber ones literally call gamers terrorists

>… various battles and subplots take place …

Recently:
>SVU episode goes up – many sides were lost that day
>Mark Kern puts up petition to Games media asking them to help repair the image of gaming – Some games media people still being a bunch of shits

That’s as simple as I can make it without completely over simplifying it.

Like sleepyguy was saying. It’s pretty clear by now that Gawker writers go out of their way act like assholes for clicks.
-“bring back bullying”
-putting Hitler quotes into the Coke ASCII art thing and then calling them Nazis
-Saying people should be arrested for their political views
… just to name a few.
I can imagine that their more regular viewers are really sadistic people.

Feminism has become such a diluted term these days that it almost doesn’t mean anything anymore. Anyone can call themselves a feminist whether they fit a common definition of a feminist (there is certainly more than one out there) or not. Different people clearly have different takes on it.

I know how you feel. I did volunteer work throughout most of my childhood in the Boy Scouts. An SJW’s idea of “community service” is shaming people on the internet, doxxing children, and telling cis people to die.

I’ll I’m going to say is: if this article gets going the comments are going to be interesting to watch.

Commented on Cultural Appropriation

People spouting this nonsense about “cultural appropriation” don’t fucking understand how culture works. There’s a big difference between mocking another culture and taking an interest to it. Black-face is mocking a culture. Drawing an exaggerated cartoon of people of a certain ethnic background is mocking a culture.

But trying to adopt the food, music, clothing, or aesthetics of another culture does not mack you racist. It’s makes you quite the opposite if anything.

Cultures develop because people copy ideas and customs from each other (much like how memes spread). It helps keep people familiar with each other and exposes them to new ideas. I’d say it can even prevent war. People aren’t going to be too happy fighting those they consider close to them culturally. Making people feel ashamed for taking part in this kind of cultural exchange doesn’t help anyone. It just keeps people more isolated.

Commented on Cultural Appropriation

You know, that’s the problem. All these people accusing everyone of “cultural appropriation” are just being offended for other people. They themselves rarely represent the cultures being “appropriated”. They use this whole thing to shame people they don’t like. They’re not worrying about this stuff because they actually give a shit.

Someone might be able to fill you in better but here’s what I can tell you:

>SVU episode “Intimidation Game” released causing pro-GG to loose their sides (and get a little worried) and a lot of people in anti-GG to either go
“Where the hell did they get that idea about gamers? Apparently, I have never read one of my own publications before.”
or
“Yup, that’s a realistic representation of gamers. Also, I sniff glue in my spare time.”

>Later, Mark Kern (apparently he’s worked on various Blizzard games) started a Change.org petition to Kotaku and Polygon asking them to help fix the damage they helped do to gaming’s image. There is a lot of debate within bot sides of GG on weather this petition is a good thing or a bad thing for their respective sides (or if it will even change anything).

>Some assholes like a guy from the website vg247 (yeah, never heard of it either) are saying that this petition is an outrage because it puts the blame on journalists.

Perhaps there have always been a lot of anti-SJWs there. Maybe most of them have just kept quiet for fear of retaliation from their SJW neighbors. This is not unlike moderate Middle-Eastern Muslims being too afraid to speak out against Islamist extremists.

We think SJWs are bad enough, just imagine having them next door to you all the time.

Funny that vg247 thinks they’re so relevant when I only ever heard of them when that asshole (see, I already forgot his name) wrote that “don’t shoot the messenger” article about the petition.

Just to help you out in the future:
You don’t need exclamation points around imbedded videos because they already have standard HTML syntax. You only need it for images.
