Her final thoughts do not represent the whole problematic of this discussion. Why is it ok to post Quinns thoughts on the matter but not Eron Gjoni's?

Thank you for saying this. Gamer are people that play games, nothing more and nothing less. It's quite simple. There are many different kinds of people that play games.
It's kind of funny that...

After the death of "gaming" (console, PC, triple A, etc...), we are not witnessing the death of "gamers":

Here is another statement by the feminist activist that advocated for trigger warnings in literature and movies a couple of months ago.
Here is the full statement:...

I don't know but I'm pretty sure I could depict The Big Lebowski as an inherently sexist movie, if I only tried really hard enough ;)
Evil people are depicted by doing evil things, be it...

Look at this, almost 15 pages of discussion and the world hasn't exploded yet, we didn't kill each other and we didn't turn into misogynists. About what exactly were we so afraid of?

Just the thought of anyone associating getting a spear through their mouth with fellatio is making my stomach turn.
Basically this. While I agree with the general conclusion that sexism...

In my opinion that's how all activism should be (no matter if you're a journalist or not)!
27-08-2014, 09:29 PM
I generally agree with you, but I don't think that journalists are or should be excluded from being activists.
I agree and it reminds me of the whole atheism vs. religion debate. It's...

We are talking semantics now. But thanks for making my point by admitting that being insulting is inherently linked to the refuse of discourse :)

So in your book it's OK to send threats and to generally harass people when they are sexists or don't conform to your moral principles?
I'm an advocate for gender-equality but that doesn't give me...

I'm pretty sure you can talk to each other without verbal abuse. This has nothing to do with silencing people's grievances. Neither do I identify myself with the ruling class or the majority. I'm...

The only reason why so many people feel harassed online is because of people that think it's justified to call other people "fucking idiots" no matter if they are right or wrong.

I'm pretty sure that if you wanted to write something you could, even with the restrictive libel laws in Britain. Maybe conduct an interview with a responsible from the Fine Young Capitalists Jam, or...

What? At no point in this discussion have I argued this! On the contrary even, take a look at my posts, heck even my forum-history and you will see that I try my damn hardest to be that "role-model"....
27-08-2014, 11:19 AM
Exactly this. Dismissing valid criticism because some people are clearly stepping over the line is just wrong. I don't identify with these people, I don't agree with the way they argue and I strongly...

Honestly, I'm a bit annoyed that our opinion leaders rather prefer to create their own little straw-man circle jerk (is there a more correct term for circle jerk?), than engage in discourse with...

You pretty much got the crux of my message already (the bolded parts) so I'm glad that it came across, despite my abhorrent English skills :)
But yeah, I feel like repeating myself:
26-08-2014, 10:52 PM
I'm not sure if that is true. Unaffiliated news-sources have begun to untangle the whole mess in order to separate fact from fiction. Unfortunately we are not allowed to link them.
To be fair,...

That's true, it's just that the door swings both ways, unfortunately nobody is willing to admit his mistakes. Instead both sides prefer to call each other "idiots" and worse. Just have a look at...

This is why I can't stand generalizations. I have been reading RPS since 2007 (or 2008 can't remember anymore), well before this forum even existed and I support their stance on gender-equality an...

I agree, he's verbally abusing people over twitter in the most disgustingly way possible and then complains that people are verbally abusing him back. Nevertheless I enjoyed FEZ, but I think that he...

In a similar matter, anyone still remembers what happened to Rab and Eurogamer?
He resigned because he was forced to edit an article involving a person called Lauren Wainright. Wainright was...

Please let's not go there. There simply is no evidence that Fish hacked his own website as confirmed by a co-worker. I did not start this topic in order to throw around baseless accusations. Phil...
