Where's your reputation? Please punch holes in the relationship between violent crime and males. Go right ahead. You don't even have to cite sources. Just do it. It's an open goal. Let's have it. FINISH HER. All you have to do is post the explanation. It's right there Kalyx. Come on. You can do it.

She only has a reputation because "gamers" couldn't handle her quite legitimate criticism about games and the way they portray females. In mainstream terms, culturally, she's a nobody precisely because gaming is largely still portrayed as a niche pursuit indulged by teenage nerds and over-grown man-children in their dark bedrooms. Even whether you agree her criticism is legitimate or not, the response to it effectively supports the fact that gaming as an art form or form of media, whichever way you see it, is far too immature to be seen as "mainstream" at this point. There won't be the media crackdown you expect against Anita Sarkeesian because the only people who care about what she says are you and the other overly-sensitive misogynists she antagonises. The response from her detractors will be the same whatever she says and her career as a talking head exists only in opposition to the bone-headed morons who react the most. In fact, throwing this embarrassing behaviour into sharp focus is a good thing. Her remark on males and male culture being mainly responsible for gun violence in the US is not even remotely controversial.

I don't consider myself a "gamer" but someone who has played games my whole life, just as I have watched films and listened to music my whole life. I don't take criticism of games personally, in other words, by someone who takes the time to at least analyse them.

I have ever once seen any GamerGate person satisfactorily explain how a personal hissy fit from a journalist about an independent games developer has really led to a campaign about journalistic ethics. Taking your cue from a total fuckwit like Adam Baldwin isn't a good start.

I still love that these fags think game journalism is...journalism. It's fags reviewing games. It's opinions at its core.

Loser fag video gamers trying to justify their actions and pretend they have anything worth living for.

This is why I'm having a difficult time seeing the "message" here.

I'm probably in the small minority with this, but the way I view reviews is that they are entirely subjective. A review, be it of a movie, book, album, or game, is by definition subjective. You are giving YOUR OPINION on how good a piece of work is. Sure, you have the context of its contemporaries to compare it to, but really what a review is is one person's voice on why they did or didn't like the game.

The whole argument against the Bayonetta 2 review, for example, is "why are you putting your personal thoughts about sexism into the review?" My counter to that is, why WOULDN'T you? I had this discussion with a friend the other day. I could see the issue if said reviewer was inconsistent in their review process. If, say, someone was very close-to-the-vest with their reviews normally and only commented on objective benchmarks as often as possible, then suddenly went up on their soapbox to decry how the game is sexist and lowered the score because of that, I could see people being annoyed at bad "journalism" (opinion piece, remember) because of the inconsistency in the review process.



Now, I also understand that most people are fucking morons and treat reviews as gospel, and if a site like IGN gives a game a 7/10 as opposed to a 9.5/10 that can have a real, legitimate effect on the number of sales that game makes. That's unavoidable so long as moronic consumers are willing to let someone else tell them what games to play. The problem lies in that people need to take reviews less seriously and focus less on some stupid arbitrary number and read the content of the review to understand why the reviewer came to that conclusion, then decide at that point if they agree and then if they choose to buy the game as a result.


Anyway whatever, tangential post.

My favourite film reviewer, Mark Kermode, always talks about problematic themes in films like misogyny, poor portrayal of females or foreigners or other non-white North American male characters, exploitative use of animals etc. where these are present in films. I appreciate hearing about it, that's why I listen to him. These are also problems in films and TV and it's commonly pointed out by critics. Games should be no different. Flagging up an ogling, over-sexualised view of a female protagonist in a game is no less a valid criticism than talking about the gameplay. This is an example of "gamers" needing to grow up.

Adobe clarified allegations of them supporting Gamergate and stated the removal of their ads from Gawker was because of a different reason instead. Originally they wanted nothing to do with either side but felt being silent was hurting them more in the end.

However, as a result of our logo having appeared on the Gawker website, we received tweets that accused us of condoning bullying. One of our employees innocently responded to one of these tweets saying we don’t advertise on Gawker, that we asked them to remove our logo and that we don’t condone bullying. Unfortunately, that tweet was perceived to support Gamergaters and created a firestorm on Twitter.

A few sentences later, Adobe cut to the chase: "We are not and have never been aligned with Gamergate. We reject all forms of bullying, including the harassment of women by individuals associated with Gamergate."

No it isn't. Sexism is discrimination or prejudice based on gender. What Anita Sarkeesian is doing is using twitter to offer a cultural explanation for why men commit more mass shootings and probably trolling gamer nerds who trip on her every word while she's at it. She may very well be incorrect in that reasoning, but she's not being sexist.

I'm probably in the small minority with this, but the way I view reviews is that they are entirely subjective. A review, be it of a movie, book, album, or game, is by definition subjective. You are giving YOUR OPINION on how good a piece of work is. Sure, you have the context of its contemporaries to compare it to, but really what a review is is one person's voice on why they did or didn't like the game.

The whole argument against the Bayonetta 2 review, for example, is "why are you putting your personal thoughts about sexism into the review?" My counter to that is, why WOULDN'T you? I had this discussion with a friend the other day. I could see the issue if said reviewer was inconsistent in their review process. If, say, someone was very close-to-the-vest with their reviews normally and only commented on objective benchmarks as often as possible, then suddenly went up on their soapbox to decry how the game is sexist and lowered the score because of that, I could see people being annoyed at bad "journalism" (opinion piece, remember) because of the inconsistency in the review process.



Now, I also understand that most people are fucking morons and treat reviews as gospel, and if a site like IGN gives a game a 7/10 as opposed to a 9.5/10 that can have a real, legitimate effect on the number of sales that game makes. That's unavoidable so long as moronic consumers are willing to let someone else tell them what games to play. The problem lies in that people need to take reviews less seriously and focus less on some stupid arbitrary number and read the content of the review to understand why the reviewer came to that conclusion, then decide at that point if they agree and then if they choose to buy the game as a result.


Anyway whatever, tangential post.
I thought Gamer Gate was more about having game reviews not influenced by outside sources (The publishers, Doritos, Fuck Buddy of the reviewer) and not the whole sexism thing, I thought that was 2 different topics all together.

It depends on who is doing the talking. At least with Kalyx, I can feel he believes in the former, to an extent. I have gotten the vibe from certain other people, they've posted a bit in this thread, they use the former as a justification to do the latter.

For instance, why are the main people the Gamergaters going after are the developers, and not the journalists?

It could be suggested it is because you (not her) used the term "ghetto mentality." Ghetto itself is an antiquated racist term. It was utterly inevitable that you would exchange the original terms for one referring to race to hope to make your point, but you changed the entire emphasis while you were doing it. I'd like to think Anita Sarkeesian would be a bit more nuanced than you when making a statement like that.

Hahaha.
Always read a study yourself before believing the nice pie charts. That is an interesting finding, but one that offers no general insight into the argument you are trying to make. The authors of the study can outline this themselves:

Quote:
There are several limitations of this work.
The first set centers around the measures of
partner violence. All measures were assessed
using only participant reports about their own
perpetration of violence and that of their partners.
The data are thus subject to all the biases
and limitations inherent to this form of
data collection, such as recall bias, social desirability
bias, and reporting bias. Regarding
reporting biases, there has been much discussion
of whether there are differences in reported
IPV by the gender of the reporter. A
meta-analysis of the reliability of the conflict
tactics scale concluded that there is evidence
of underreporting by both genders, and that
underreporting may be greater for men,34 for
more severe acts of IPV.21 It would have been
ideal to collect violence data from both partners,
but those data were not collected from
the full Add Health sample.
A second measurement issue pertains to the
scope of violence measures. The 3 questionsincluded in the Add Health study do not capture
all forms of violence that occur between
relationship partners, including many of the
more severe forms of partner violence on the
Conflict Tactics Scale (e.g., used a knife or
gun, choked, or burned). Questions about
emotional, verbal, psychological, or sexual aggression
were also not included. Similarly,
only a single item assessed injury to victims
and it focused on injury frequency and excluded
injury severity and whether medical
attention was needed or sought. Thus, it is
unclear whether the data presented here
would be similar had the violence and injury
assessment been more thorough or if different
forms of violence had been measured and
analyzed separately. Perhaps more important
than the limited measures of violence and injury
is the fact that no data were collected
about the causes or function of violence. Such
data are needed to understand why relationships
with reciprocal violence are more violent
and more likely to result in injury. We
speculated that retaliation may lead to escalating
violence and injury, but data are
needed to examine this hypothesis. Future
studies should focus on the causes and context
of reciprocal and nonreciprocal IPV.
Another limitation is that the Add Health
study obtained partner violence data primarily
about relationships considered to be important
as defined by the Add research team.
Thus, it is not clear how this selection bias
may have impacted the findings—that is,
whether the findings would be the same with
a fuller sample of relationships. However, our
findings are consistent with previous research
on other samples that have shown reciprocal
partner violence is fairly common with adolescents11
and with broader populations.8,9
Finally, as noted, the data collected were part
of a nationally representative sample selected
when participants were in middle and high
school. The use of a nationally representative
sample greatly increases the generalizability
of the findings, but this particular sample is of
limited range in age (18–28 years) and likely
does not include the most severely abused
victims who are subjected to extreme control
by their partners and may be unable or unwilling
to participate in research.22
Apologies for the formatting, I have copied that from the study. It is a common tactic for smarmy internet sites to cherry-pick study findings from academia and employ colourful pie charts to try to make some sort of wider point. When you look at the methods of this study, all of those limitations are obvious, which is why the authors have stated them.

You are wrong ECG, it doesn't matter if ghetto mentality, or thug mentality or whatever was plugged in there.

Saying "It's always *this group of people* that does *this bad thing*" is prejudicial. It doesn't matter what hypothesis she put there afterwards.

Incorrect. Only if it is not "always" men or boys committing these mass shootings would it be prejudicial. I suppose you could quibble the use of "always" if you wanted to be anal in an effort to try to pin the "sexist" label on her, but it is, essentially, males who commit these acts of violence with some rare exceptions. Her point also, is not that males are inherently more violent but that problematic social ideas of masculinity are responsible. She doesn't say "masculine culture" is responsible, which would be the analogous term to using the racial terms you are using, she says "toxic ideas of masculinity" and of "manhood" which is completely different. This should be obvious, but the desperation to pin hypocritic bigotry on a social commentator who is making uncomfortable arguments is always more appealing than actually examining the argument she is making. Even if she was sexist, she would still have a point about mass shootings.

The word "always" makes it sexist though, if she replaced "always" with "emotionally troubled" it would have made it better.

Also why is she trying to equate sexism to why shootings occur? Isn't it usually just being bullied or some sort of isolation or mental illness? Seems like she's just grasping at straws because she wants to make some grand point that falls way short.

It's a two-way street for parenting. If parenting has anything to do with it. Trying to blame it all on the men is sexist. Just because males commit the violence doesn't mean sexism has anything to do with it. She's nothing more than another person blaming "rock music" or "rap lyrics." A Full of shit, opportunistic, liar.

This thread is becoming fantastically derailed with all sorts of ridiculousness.

It's a two-way street for parenting. If parenting has anything to do with it. Trying to blame it all on the men is sexist. Just because males commit the violence doesn't mean sexism has anything to do with it. She's nothing more than another person blaming "rock music" or "rap lyrics." A Full of shit, opportunistic, liar.
I don't think she is blaming sexism. I think what she is saying is that the men and boys play the video games (or watch the action movies) and want to act it out in real life.

What are you on about?

"Always" only makes it sexist if you're trying to make a boring semantic argument about whether "always" means 100% of the time vs 99% of the time. Either way her argument is true that the vast majority of mass shootings are carried out by males and if you start quibbling it with exceptions, you're only really strengthening her argument by highlighting the massive gender discrepancy.

She didn't say anything about games in those tweets. Where have you got this from? Were there further tweets where she blamed games for mass shootings?

She clearly states she feels sexist ideas are behind it, makes no mention of games, yet you say here she is not blaming sexism and is blaming games.

Kinda like the whole "movement". Honestly feel as if it has become a parody of itself.
