MechaCrashRemember, one feminist acting badly means it's okay to tar them all with the same brush, but one (or a hundred) Gaters acting badly means it's time to scream about how there's no leader and no consensus and it's a broad movement HOW DARE YOU JUDGE US.05/06/2015 - 7:38pm
Andrew EisenI'm pretty sure (could be wrong) that Thompson never participated in a formal debate either. There was going to be one (possibly two) and he backed out.05/06/2015 - 7:38pm
Goth_SkunkThere's nothing really to debate. Wonderkarp is right, the statement is at best wrong. At worst, it's a bald-faced example of discrimination.05/06/2015 - 7:38pm
Mattsworknamealso, Anita having views on gaming is not cause for all the rabid hate she got. you can argue her points, but the hate is uncalled for05/06/2015 - 7:37pm
Wonderkarpthe one thing the conversation needs is an actual formal debate. I really hope the SPJ thing pulls through.05/06/2015 - 7:36pm
Andrew EisenOh, you mean you want a formal debate. Like a presidential debate type thing. Okay. No, she's never done that (so far as I'm aware). And I'll thank you to refrain from calling me a liar.05/06/2015 - 7:34pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Yeah, it's how gamers and any group tend to get a bad wrap... by the actions of the worst among them.05/06/2015 - 7:33pm
Wonderkarpok now you are just lieing, Andrew. Talks about yes. Debates? like a clear debate with a moderator? Being interviewed by Stephen Colbert is not a debate05/06/2015 - 7:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd also as I mentioned before, she talks about/debates this stuff all the time.05/06/2015 - 7:32pm
Mattsworknamejust to clarify, feminism got to be viewed in a negative way due to rabid extremists making it look bad. sound familiar?05/06/2015 - 7:31pm
WonderkarpI wish she would. I'd love to see an actual debate over this. even Jack Thompson debated over his crap. I know Milo put up 10k for charity of her choice to debate.05/06/2015 - 7:30pm
Andrew EisenJust because you don't agree with an opinion doesn't make it unreasonable.05/06/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenEven tempered? Unquestionably. Reasonable? Yes. Debatable? When you look at it from alternate perspectives, of course!05/06/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenWant to debate that point? Great! Go right ahead! As I said earlier, her commentary and opinions are not beyond reproach.05/06/2015 - 7:28pm
Wonderkarpeventempered maybe. Reasonable? No05/06/2015 - 7:28pm
Wonderkarpits bullshit? its not 1920? Women have run for president? women run big corporations? Women can rape and murder? I can point too a friend of mine who was beaten regularly by his ex wife if you need an example.05/06/2015 - 7:27pm
Andrew EisenShe's sharing her perspective. She's not belligerent. She's not cursing. It's not even aimed at a particular person.05/06/2015 - 7:27pm
Andrew EisenYeah. And?05/06/2015 - 7:24pm
Wonderkarpreasonable eventempered? ""There's no such thing as sexism against men. That's because sexism is prejudice + power. men are dominant gender with power in society".05/06/2015 - 7:20pm
Andrew EisenYes, we did. Before the internet. But fanboy/girl shitstorms over the minutia of pop culture is as old as fandom itself. Fans just have a bigger megaphone now.05/06/2015 - 7:18pm
