Anita Sarkeesian on the Oscars and the Bechdel Test
06/18/14, 11:17

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:
Deepak Chopra's One Million Dollar Challenge to the Skeptics

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.

I've raised this same point before, in arguments about the feasibility of tanks vs bipedal mecha suits. As I'm sure you already know, tank nerds are hopelessly shortsighted and naive; they always seem to assume that the military-industrial complex is a rational, conventional economic agent, and that it's goal is to produce simple, stable, cost-effective solutions to military problems. It is not. As a tax-funded industry, the goal is simply to get money by spending money (expense justifies it's existence), and if extravagant, plasma-sword-wielding, five-story-tall Mobile Suits become technologically possible, rest assured, they will be made. Then we'll be having old engineers complaining about whether the Future Joint Assault Mecha really needs to have a Samurai crest and a tactical mininuke on it's back, or whether it should just stick to the basic gauss-rifle and napalm setup.

Guys, guys. Why does Ms Sarkeesian always do this to us? She always causes poeTV to devolve into a bickering morass of people who think she's a bitch, and people who think everyone who thinks she's a bitch is a chauvinist rape-monger. She brings out the irrational tribal hatred in everyone, on both sides of the issue. Does everything have to be MRAs vs Feminazis? Do we really need to fight?

Sloth Week is coming! June 20

I'm glad she's managed to parlay her accidental efame into a successful career talking about animals and cosplaying as Rainbow Dash.

Does she like sloths more than sharks? I thought she was into sharks, but I'm willing to be corrected.

Roddy's probably played that pipe a few times himself.
