There are few things worse than David Bowie and Mick Jagger, but at least without the music it is somewhat watchable.

Anita Sarkeesian on the Oscars and the Bechdel Test

^Ism. SexISM. Not sexIST. Sorry, John.
Anita Sarkeesian on the Oscars and the Bechdel Test
06/18/14, 15:10

Mr Holmes - Anita doesn't say sexist happens all the time. In fact, she doesn't even say it happens MOST of the time. As I stated earlier, one of the biggest problems with Ms Sarkeesian isn't that she's wrong, it's that she does not actually advance any arguments. She never "gets to the point". The *implication* is that her cherry-picked examples of sexism are indicative of a broader trend in video game sexism, because otherwise why bother bringing them up in the first place? If video games are NOT sexist, why even have the discussion? But, like many academics with a background in sociology, she is very careful to avoid making any direct statements which can be challenged and discredited. In fact, I rather suspect she is well aware that video games are by and large non-sexist, and her actual goal with all of this is simply to play the agent provocateur in hopes of getting exposure, and maybe tenure somewhere down the line; like Jack Thompson and his obviously futile crusades against video game violence, only she is trying to appeal to college radicals and men like yourself, instead of angry Christians and overprotective parents. Or maybe she's just a bored woman with a webcam who wanted to kill a few afternoons on Youtube? I don't know. At any rate, it seems that you do not disagree with me on any of these points, and your objection stems from semantic hairsplitting ("one cannot cherry-pick evidence if one has no argument to support!"), so I hope I've cleared that up to your liking.

Adham - I cannot speak for everypony as to their preferred nomenclature, but what is wrong with "man and brother"?

I think Mr Holmes is well within his rights to use such words, and I would strongly caution against word-shaming him. We call him a creep and a pedophile, which are pejorative terms that neither creeps nor pedophiles like to be called. Using less-harmful language SOUNDS nice, in principle... but only so long as the language we avoid is harmful towards people or groups we don't wish to see harmed.

However, if poe policy is now for us to at least be conscious about using harmful language, may I just say that I find the word "brony" to be horribly offensive and hurtful?

Also Mr Holmes, re: the examples of sexism. That's pretty much the whole point of cultural criticism, don't you think? The question she wishes us to discuss is whether or not sexism is rampant in video games; examples and counter-examples are perfectly relevant to this.

While I do agree that cherry-picking examples of sexism/notsexism is a bit silly (this is all Sarkeesian does, and if it's silly when she does it, it's silly when anyone else does it), I think the point these critics are trying to make is that sexism is not actually all that common in modern gaming, and that the alleged examples cited by Sarkeesian are not representative of gaming as a whole. While I certainly believe that a good deal of progress can still be made in offering gaming choices to all gender-identities (although I rather suspect that many of these strides would be too radically progressive and not welcomed by Sarkeesian), the sad fact is that she herself doesn't really bring anything to the discussion other than disinformation and provocation.

>>Anyone can disagree with Anita Sarkeesian, or find her reasoning flawed. It's the persistent and fevered attempt to portray her as an evil instead of merely wrong that sets my faggot sense a-tinging. And, of course, the rape threats.

Mr Holmes - I think part of the problem, at least as far as PoE is concerned, is that we do a great deal of projecting. I don't think anyone here believes she's literally *evil*, or would like to rape her. On the flip side, I don't think anyone here actually takes her arguments seriously - or whatever you'd call them, as she doesn't really advance arguments, and she takes great pains to avoid making direct, falsifiable statements. "Insinuations", maybe. Anyway, it's mostly just us projecting whatever wild position we believe to be Other, into the minds and mouths of our fellow netizens.

Youtube, however, is indeed full of faggots.

Five stars for how much rage insecure men cause Change.

I'm inclined to agree with OZ's metric: Sarkeesian isn't very interesting in and of herself, but POEsters do enjoy talking about her, so that's something. I just wish we could keep our discussions civil, without all the fighting and name-calling... unless we know for sure that the person we are typing at enjoys fighting and name-calling! Then I guess it's OK, because some people like being angry and indignant and passing judgement on each-other. Friendship can manifest itself in many strange and unexpected ways! :nods:

In fact, globally speaking, he may even be MORE popular than Oprah. Think of him as soccer and Oprah as football.

A lot of people pay attention to him, actually. I'm not sure how popular he is with the Oprah crowd (possibly very popular?), but I do know that he's the head of his own obscenely successful New Age selfhelp-altmedicine-spiritual media empire, and one of, if not THE, richest bullshitters on the planet. He and James Randi have been sparring for decades, but celebrities like him and he does his best to come off as less of an asshate than Yuri Geller/ The Maharishi/ Peter Popoff/ Sylvia Browne/ whoeverthefuck (he donates to progressive causes, he makes feel-good speeches, he hangs out with high profile peace activists), so it's been incredibly difficult for skeptics to dislodge him.

The Indian deli down the street from my house used to sell a lot of his own branded merchandise, including incense, candle, and napkin sets.

"Cunt" is a sexist slur. If we are to accept the position that racist and homophobic slurs - that is, slurs which are directed towards politically protected classes of people - are somehow "unacceptable", then sexist slurs, which are directed against the largest and most thoroughly disenfranchised minority group in human history, should be viewed as unacceptable too. It is perfectly conflatable.

And at any rate, he's neither a cunt nor a faggot nor a nigger. He's a Paki.

But she's a celebrity. That's what people do with celebrities: try and learn personal details, hang out around their houses, and photoshop them into porn.

The public does this with Justin Bieber, with Miley Cyrus, with Jodie Foster, and now with Boxxy. The only difference being, Boxxy was a grassroots internet celebrity, rather than a traditional Old Media celebrity.

How Dogs react to Human Barking?
06/18/14, 03:19

I used to bark with my old dog. She had a system of grunts and snorts that she'd use to communicate things like "I want to go outside" or "let's play tug of war"; I got so used to hearing it that it eventually wormed it's way into my daily speech patterns as involuntary interjections. For example, if something nice and unexpected happened, instead of saying something like, cool! or oh great!, I'd give a happy dog snort.

When I was really little, I used to bark at all kinds of dogs on the street. I think I told you about that, yes? When I thought I was a dog, King of the Dogs in fact? And I nearly got bit because I thought angry dogs barking at me were actually loyal subjects trying to swear fealty to me?

How did 4chan harass her? I thought 4chan *made* her. 4chan gallantly and selflessly elected her as their Queen; if it weren't for them, she'd still be a nobody like the rest of us.
