Re: Don't Vote...

I dont even know if I'm registered to vote...besides, I have a paper that isn't going to write itself

Re: Don't Vote...

You can actually check your status online.  www.voteforchange.com is a very simple site that will tell you if you're registered, and if not, whether you still can (some states have same-day registration so you can register the same day that you vote).  It was set up by the Obama campaign, so it's branded that way, but anyone is free to use it.

Re: Don't Vote...

 I'm not voting, my state is a repulican state, they vote repulican every election, no candidates EVER come here to do speeches, we aren't a sway state, they KNOW they have our electorals, why should I vote when it won't matter?

Re: Don't Vote...

i don't care, so i'm not voting :) either way its one more idiot running the country that has few worthy points to work with and isn't more than a figure head either way, he can only urge one way or the other, after the governments in though the peoples say goes out the door on anything that was "promised" during the election term.

the government votes itself in anyways, we merely vote locally, beyond that its all electoral college voting government into government.

Re: Don't Vote...

Apathy of the citizens is what keeps giving the government more bureaucratic power.

*facepalm*

Re: Don't Vote...

 IF you don't vote, make sure you do it VOCALLY!! Protest in the streets. Rally outside the polls. Make sure people know it's wrong!

Seriously, to everyone: Research, then vote! Make sure you know all the options and what will happen for each. Tired of McCain and Obama? Remember: There are still other candidates out there. Write in a protest if you have to, but make sure your voice is heard!

Re: Don't Vote...

I protest the fact that these 2 idiots are the only options we have, since the media didn't follow the other guys at all, even though at least one of them may actually be a better canidate than both of them...  but when statistics are massively against you, you have one option, vote with the remainder. 

We have 2 idiots to choose from, which idiot do you want.  I just know I don't want the idiot that picked a lady that thinks Earth is 6,000 years old, and I rather have the guy that hired over a dozen nobel prize winners to advise him on matters of climate change, medical stuff, and so on. (I wonder if he learned was most scientist know, over 95% of climate change is due to cycles that the sun goes through, and the remaining less than 5% isn't all human either. [I go along with the BS though since I think solar panels and other green technology are a no crap items that cost less in the long run, but that is me.])

If the media would advertise the 3rd guy, or he would have raised enough funds, then this could be one hell of an election where a 3rd party shows they could take power soon, but it didn't happen this year.  I give it 12 years until a third party will either come close or be in the white house if the current parties don't go through massive change over the next 12 years.

Re: Don't Vote...

In Canada, we have 2 major parties (Liberal and Conservitives) and 2 smaller parties (NDP, Bloc Québécois) and then we have something called Independent which is the really really small parties like the Green Party. We give a fair mount of screen time to the smaller parties too, but it doesn't really make much of a difference.

Green party was able to be part of the major debates, but they only ended up with zero seats (out of 308). Huge amount of people hate both Stephen Harper and Stephane Dion, yet they have the most seats.

Media doesn't matter, people are just voting the party they were loyal to years before.

Re: Don't Vote...

I'm with you on that...  not.

I want to see Indiana turn blue myself.

IanCBroke my EA boycott to pick up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Loving it. Still hate EA though. But i like Popcap. Gah.08/30/2014 - 6:01am

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
Andrew EisenAmusingly, these videos aren't saying you can't/shouldn't use tropes or that sexual representations are inherently problematic so those are very silly things to have a problem with and indicate a fundamental misunderstanding of the series.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
SleakerDo you think the female community would get extremely angry over a male doing a case study on the negative impact of sex-novels and their unrealistic depiction of males and how widespread they are in american culture?08/29/2014 - 12:25pm
SleakerThe other thing that people might find problematic is that they see no problem with sexual representations of females (or males) in games. And realistically, why is there anything wrong with sexual representations in fiction?08/29/2014 - 12:24pm
