Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

Snip. It still happens. I have friends overseas whom I play Dota with, and when I play on american servers (that have decent ping for me, for some reason) I see brazilians get flamed all the time. So, due to having a noticeable accent, I only type. On Brazil servers I played with a guy whom is from...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

Can you please define "doxxing"? You appear to be using it to mean "anything I don't like". You posted Zoe insulting them and being amused that their site accidentally got DDoSed...but not any doxxing, which, as far as I understand it is "searching for and posting publicly, identifying or private i...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

I only bring it up because you offered a strangely specific sentiment without much justification. Given the possible range of interpretations regarding these women, you seem intent on picking the most negative ones. That's of relevance because it shapes how we frame the discussion. Alright. I was t...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

We're judging based on what the person in question actually said. "I'm a guy, by the way." "I pretend to be a woman online because it makes it easier to hack people." Are you saying the person in question shouldn't be believed about their own gender identity, because you know better than they do? W...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

No, you didn't. There were no screenshots of a trans teenager because there wasn't a trans teenager . The claimed trans teenager was in fact not trans, and was claiming to be trans in order to gain some ephemeral moral authority on feminism (to promote an MRA agenda). It's amazing how you can claim...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

Are you conceding that no one "doxxed" an underage transgender person, and your outrage over that was either ignorant (didn't read the whole page) or feigned (read the whole page and didn't want to admit it)? Nice moving of goalposts there. That there were screen shots of a trans teenager is listed...

The sentiment is good. Still, why would you think she's a con woman? It's not her fault that she was given more money than she demanded for the project. One could certainly feel that she's not stretching herself or that she should do more, but there's no duplicity there that I can see. And no, I ca...

Snip. Apology accepted. In the interest of polite discussion, let me say this: I know you don't know me (and I could claim be anyone on the Internet), and I'll be the first to admit gaming culture is toxic, for the most part a boy's club, and admit harassment and misogyny is happening. I would be t...

If you don't see anything wrong in broadcasting the doxx of a minor, a transgender one at that, we are done.

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

This behavior has been going on for a while, ever since Anonymous proved it could be done without major consequences for most of the people involved. The GamerGate thing is just the most recent incarnation of this attitude. Really guys? You need more screen shots to prove harassment against people ...

Bullshit.

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

saying it's misogynist, and saying "oh, women are in gamergate too!" doesn't make it not misogynist. What are the "real" grievances? Critiquing the way videogames treat female characters? That's the way artistic media work. If you want to say games are art, then people get to critique that art. Pre...

Re: Is #GamerGate misogyny posing as concern for ethics?

Sarkeesian felt threatened enough to file a police report. Most police departments have little patience for those who file frivolous complaints, as anyone with half a brain knows. So I doubt she would have called the SFPD unless the threats seemed credible. It's one thing to tell someone "Go die in...

"Women support gamergate, therefore it's not misogynist"? That's your argument? There are women who campaigned against the 19th Amendment in the US. Women can do things that aren't feminist. If not feminist, it's misogynist? You always surprise me with your nonsense, buddy Oh wait, making definitio...

Oh god, let's not get into this here. It's not about ethics, not by a long shot.

I know we like to shit on Fox but the reactions in the first page of this thread aren't really all that different from that Fox article.
