The year is 2540, a student in history class notices something off about his textbook. “How come these textbooks skip the years 1990 through 1999?” The teacher puts his air-marker down on the table, lowers his head, and sighs. “Because…” he lifts his head, a single tear rolls down his cheek, “… only 90’s kids remember the 90’s”
Not the heroes we thought we needed but the heroes we really needed all along
aggressively reads your readmores to make sure you’re okay
aggressively doesn’t know what to do when you’re not okay
Most importantly: you’re stronger than you think.
WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES
I need this in my life. I was feeling overwhelmed today.
Good to remember.
It’s getting chillyyyyyy!
Things to remember not-so dear feminists,
You struck the first blow when 5-7 years ago you had your SJW-filled gaming journalism absolutely shit on the gaming community continuously for all that time. Deriding us as misogynistic,women-hating, fat, basement dwellers. Then Feminism compounded this with lying Feminists like Anita Sarkeesian who not only disabled the comments and voting for her own Feminist Frequency videos but actively sought to silence other polite well-reasoned critiques to her videos on youtube, twitter, and various other places. That behavior of trying to silence critics continues to this day. Not to mention feigning harassment (she has yet to make a single police report).
Then comes along Zoe Quinn who utterly fabricated an attack on her by wizardchan, feigned so many hacking attempts against her, feigning harassment, all of which she has failed to make a single police report on any of these so-called threats.
These are things that occurred before the outbreak of gaming journalists attending think-tank meetings with feminists to create a unified message against critics, gamers, and the gaming community, that gaming journalists are sleeping with the developers they are writing nice things for, the blatant hypocrisy on the part of Zoe Quinn and SJW game “journalists”, and so on. I mean I could go on but it’s just not necessary.
After all that you twits have the gall to call US assholes. Are surprised there is a push back? Are shocked to find out that minorities and even POC are tired of your shit and created #notyourshield?
Stop assaulting gamers and stop the hypocrisy and maybe a meaningful dialog can start. Until feminism and SJWs can stop with the lies, assaults, and gross hypocrisy there will be no solidarity.
Couldn’t agree more.
Y’know, I’m all for humanist equality. Everyone’s life is worth the exact same, and no one is better than anyone else for any reason. And if you chalk up my beliefs to anything other than the previous sentence, I suggest you re-read that fucking sentence. You do not tell me what I believe. So with that out of the way, let’s move on.
I don’t know if pseudo-feminists like the ones here on this website understand this, but people who play video games aren’t made murderers or rapists by video games. Their genetic makeup and early-age upbringing play a significantly larger role in a young person’s life than games, a truth that people tend to stamp out in light of shootings and other violence. Sarkeesian has yet to realize this, along with all the damn rest of you. For whatever reason, it is just so difficult to imagine video games as something other than a negative influence no matter what.
I remember similar accusations against violent movies, and music with graphic lyrics. People will always look for a source of violence around a person, instead of right behind them. if you look through them, you’ll see one or both of the following: a nasty or neglectful upbringing, and a history of violence or mental instability in the family. Since video games came into the mainstream picture, people are always ready to adopt them as the root cause for things like school shootings. But it was the same issue with violent television years back.
I also doubt any pseudo-feminist will really recognize the meaning of the word consequence. Most if not all normal players easily recognize the difference between hurting an AI in a game and hurting a real person. I know this needs no mention, but apparently it needs to be said if people like Sarkeesian keep suggesting that players will automatically adopt every violent trope that happens to show its face in any context, even if it’s the wrong one.
You know what’s really crazy? Let’s apply this to something else, and you’ll see. Read the Bible. Just READ it. How many deaths are there? How much indiscriminate killing is there in all of the whole text? By one blog’s estimate, in the millions. So much death, so many vividly described acts of killing. And in the same breath, people sing the praises of a righteous God. By way of association, they’re praising some of the most devastating acts of genocide. And by whatever logic those “feminists” go by, an average Christian’s exposure to scripture should, for all intents and purposes, make them a murderer.
But normal people don’t think this way. Most people understand that true Christians are people who love unconditionally and wouldn’t harm a fly. They are unaffected by the bloodshed they read so much about. Not to mention, all the attitudes towards women in the Bible? They’re basically property to be treated as a man would like. But you don’t see anyone (in the US anyways, also minus extremists and some religious cultures) that actually still treats women the way they are in the holy text. And why not? Because it’s outdated. Most people instantly understand this, and this applies to players, too.
Would I dare backhand a woman and knock her hat off in public? I would sooner off myself. But seeing it happen to a fictional character in a virtual world of no consequence? It’s hilarious. And not because it’s a woman, either. I laugh because Grand Theft Auto 5 spend half a billion dollars on a game where you can cold-clock someone and their hat hilariously goes flying. They don’t even care about the hat, it just falls on the fucking ground and they take off running. The cool thing? It’s not actually happening. There is no spoon!
So why do “feminists” even care so much? Why do they ignore the evidence that says gaming isn’t the sole cause of violence, and why choose something other people love to use as ammunition?
