Until you realize that if she looked like a model there’d be a sizable contingent saying she got in only on her looks and doesn’t deserve to be there. It’s lose/lose with these people.

The loud idiots who hate women then whine about censorship. Still rather do it that way. Twitch chat is cancerous at the best of times.

Make all Twitch chats for major tournaments/events subscriber-only and have a slice of the revenue go to supporting the event organizers and competitors, IMO.

Having begun doing freelance work for fighting game tournaments, part of the job is keeping an eye on Twitch stream chatrooms, and it’s always all hands on deck whenever a female is competing. I would like to think it’d be best for our hobby/profession/the industry as a whole to include as many people as we can, but

You could consider responding with compassion and empathy to his struggles with self-worth instead of judgement and disgust. Maybe the fact that someone who you would consider a “sad, self-loathing nerd” is also your favorite game designer, and that you would find this “off-putting,” says more about you thank it does

Though I’m not sure you realize this, but a lot of Taro’s public face is a half act. The real reason he wore the mask was originally as a “fuck you”to Square Enix for making him do extensive press tours, and he managed to turn it into a joke. It’s the same with how he’s self-loathing. Sure, he has self-depricating

As amazing as Horizon and Zelda were, neither reached in terms of storytelling the way Neir did. Horizon was about polishing what we know to a razor-sharp shine and Zelda about reinventing the gameplay wheel of a beloved series.

I chose the “embroil yourself in massive student loan debt” method, it’s been moderately effective so far.

There was also a pink satin slip that was really popular. Kids are super tactile, and they’d all fight over that one. But I had to sweet-talk a couple of dads who were not thrilled to find their sons in a pink slip and yellow heels at pickup time.

I think you want your kids to be able to make their own decisions. Validating the child’s emotions is an essential step for this.

Yyeah, The Wing can also try doing what black people had to learn to do: say it’s open for all to avoid the idiotic “reverse discrimination” claims (or reverse sexism in this instance) and market your ass off to your target audience. Just use tons of pink, only feature women in your promos, and dudes will get the

When I taught preschool, my boys were big fans of a pair of chunky yellow pumps we kept in the dressup area. Because they made a hell of a noise on the linoleum, mostly.

yes. this is what is so hard about it too. I want my kids to behave well.... but not TOO well. I was labelled the “quiet” one and I never talked back, got in trouble...but I also never stood up for myself. sometimes when I tell my kids no, and they figure out a way to do it themselves, I am secretly pleased.

One parent of a child reportedly complained to a teacher that their daughter had become “cheeky and defiant at home after being encouraged to say ‘No!’” To which I say: they should be so lucky!

I wouldn’t want to walk barefoot in the snow or massage someone’s feet, but I would gladly subject my kids to both. Builds character.

Boys massaged each other’s feet. Girls were led in barefoot walks in the snow, and told to throw open the window and scream.
