Recently, after I completed a mission in a popular big-budget video game, one of the "good guys" I was working for…
Video games have a blackness problem. This has been a known thing for a while, and we do talk about it from time to…
every girl's crazy bout a shark dresed man.
You're putting in solid arguments but it is entirely wasted on the guy you're posting at. He's been posting on this site for years now with the basic ethos of 'I love anime boobies and poop jokes and the political correctness wants to take that away from me.' He has no understanding of the concepts you're trying to… Read more
Exactly. Applying "satire", and particularly cheap and lazy satire, to everything equally detracts from any power that any one of those individual comments might have. If you knew someone who, whenever anything was brought up, would say "that's bullshit" and then make the easiest joke possible then I don't think it… Read more
Dreamweb! Where is it :(
Not to mention that just because sitauation-x happened once that it should continue. As our defintion and idea of free speech/art develops doesn't mean the breadth of people who undertsqnd and respect that breadth develop as well.
I don't know about you guys, but Manhunt made me shit my pants, and I was the one doing the horrible killing.

you know what? I can see you have your hands full dealing with multiple people saying the same thing I am, so I'll back off. For the most part though, I find your replies compelling. Keep up the good work!
We're closer to each other's views than I previously thought actually, hooray for staying civil. I still think that penalizing score, or not being able to get the achievement or other carrot *is* punishing the bad behavior, maybe not much or not enough in her view (sorry, I won't imply your implicit agreement with her… Read more
The Cherry Picker's Union also holds a Strawman Building Competition every year.
I apologize if I didn't take the time to make my point more clear as you seem to misunderstand me. I'm not talking about glossing over anything and my thoughts on the matter rely less on idealism than the typical feminist argument. What I mean is that while I constantly read articles that say things like "men… Read more
I don't know how you put up with it for this long. I hope you're enjoying a pint glass of wine at this point.
Wait. Just yelling "cherry picking!" isn't an automatic win button?
