You basically implied "developers are weak nerds", and then say I shouldn't be offended. Why should I have to first listen you insult me, and then have you tell me how I should react?
No, I SAID ONE developer was a weak nerd overcome by butthurt. You want me to check my privilege yet?
Yes, in that you can't expect everyone to ignore the harassment. People can only withstand so much before giving up, or breaking down. Which is why these things should not be allowed to continue.
Or, you could, you know, man up and ignore it. You don't have to look at the harassment. Burying your head in the sand would work, easily here.
She's getting threats and harassment. That makes her a victim.
Threats and harassment both justified and ignored.
That means she has a skill never found in the social justice warrior mentality:
The ability to dish it, and take it.
Wow. She actually got a little bit of respect from me.
Her opinions are also popular. I support her because I think she's right. That is, her videos have convinced me that games are sexist in a way that doesn't make games better, and I want to make better games.
You do know Anita is parodied and the videos make more sense then her's right?
Because they say different things in the same way. Neither of them truthful.
Getting money isn't wrong, but since you're upset here's more fuel to the fire: these two people who make technically (as in, filming, staging, editing) worse videos than Anita, who are getting $8000 per month to make a thing called "Sarkeesian Effect"
. Her harassers are getting tons of money for harassing her.
Well, except that they've only started to start filming once they hit k´$15.000. Per month.
Seriously. Several people make their living from harassing her.
What? Did you read the fucking post you twat?
"The Sarkeesian Effect will be a feature-length documentary covering an ongoing phenomenon in video game and tech circles, culminating in the recent outrage known as #GamerGate: the progressive infiltration by disingenuous “Social Justice Warriors” – individuals who claim high minded ideals while operating unethically.
The goal of this film will be three-fold:
1. To introduce #GamerGate to a wider audience of non-gamers.
2. To give a voice to those who have been victimized by the Social Justice “moral authority”.
3. To fully expose the depths of this corruption.
Nothing is there.
"The methodology of Social Justice has a chilling effect on the culture: by demanding perfect diversity, they ensure that true diversity will never be allowed. By celebrating victims-and-only-victims, the conversation is controlled by the voices that complain the loudest; seldom are these the voices those who have actually been hurt. As a result, the culture winds up being directed by those who are most unscrupulous. Creators, gamers, and actual victims are excluded from the conversation.
So, "harassing" is disagreeing?
Ragdoll, Endo, Gray, Korban, EPR you're all harassing me. Check your privilege.
Doesn't work when I do it. Wonder why.
But thanks, now I know a good cause to donate money to, so people can actually know what's going on in gaming.
There's this lawyer who's paid private investigators to look into women who oppose GamerGate.
This is beyond ridiculous.
How so? No one is being victimized because private investigators are investigating them.
THAT'S WHAT THEY DO!
And. You. Say. The. Victims. Make. A. Profit.
They do. Anita gets $30,000 a video. OFF THE KICKSTARTER PROFITS ALONE.
Not to mention other deals that might have netted her money.
$160,000 well spent. That's enough HAZMAT suits to keep every doctor from getting Ebola ever if each suit costed $50 dollars.
But no, FEMINISM is more important
You are singing to a choir, to the tune of "KILL THE WITCH, SHE IS A BORE" and then have the gall to say that "well people should just ignore it", and "they should have given a chance, he only said he'd kill him, that's no reason to get upset", and "I'm not a bully, I'm not doing anything wrong!"
You love straw-men don't you?
Oh well this can't get worse.
[quite[If you quack like a duck and walk like a duck, and the duck kicks puppies[/quote]
And it did.
Did you. Seriously. Fucking. Equate kicking a infant dog. To not agreeing with a fucking con artist feminist who only wants her way.
You. Fucking. Disgust me.
and you say you're not a duck but kicking puppies is all right,
See above mister tumblrette.
there's only so many times people are going to buy it.
If Anita can be a victim a few dozen times and get profit for it, I can claim what's actually true-
Oh wait, no I can't. Because people aren't interested in the truth. MRA meetings isn't a meeting of hate groups. GamerGate isn't a Nazi movement and Anita and Zoe aren't victims.
People don't believe any of that though.
You can't ignore everything.
But you can ignore this. I ignore the bullshit you say on a daily basis until I feel like dealing with it.
I'm not a victim. I don't claim to be a victim. I. AM. NOT. A. VICTIM.
Posting until someone has too much is wrong.
Knowing that, we know that posting too much bad stuff is wrong, because without it, the point of "too much" will either be reached later, or never.
It is. That doesn't mean you can play victim until someone get's lynched because it's easily (And I MEAN easily).
Speaking from experience here.
Drunk driving is bad because it makes accidents more likely.
Driving under influence is wrong even before the accident happens, because we try to prevent the accident in the first place.
Universes of difference.
Being mean is bad for the same reason bullying is bad.
This isn't bullying however. Which is the only actual first world problem that is actually worth a damn.
Not telling the truth is bad for the same reason lying is bad, which is bad for the same reason breaking an oath is bad.
Posting online harassment is bad and wrong, even when it's ignored, just like stealing is wrong even when it's something too small to be noticed.
Difference is that when something like a penny is stolen people don't play victim.
