    No, feminism does not do that. There is nothing inherent about feminism that would antagonise or vilify a select group. In fact most of the 'trolls', if you stopped them and asked them the right...

    I guess that gives you even more cause to antagonise and vilify young white heterosexual men then.

    Why didn't RPS address these issues sooner or were they hoping that this huffing and puffing would be over sooner?
  4. If this Zoe Quinn thing was just a non-issue...

    If this Zoe Quinn thing was just a non-issue storm in a teacup then that must make this "Death of Gamers" thing even MORE of a non-issue. It's even worse because many of the people shouting that...

    I'd rather you didn't refer to us as "cronies", the accepted term is "terrorists" and our chosen manner of attack is aggressive linking.

    I wish ending this drama was as simple as posting some...

    Hold on. I don't even endorse using 'tropes' to describe women. In fact, some of Anita's upcoming videos are called "Mrs. Male Character" and "Man with Boobs", as listed on her Kickstarter page. I...

    Condescension, off to a great start. It's almost as though an unfounded accusation of misogyny is something to get angry about!

    How dare you? Why should gender enter into this?...

    How dare you? Why should gender enter into this? ANYONE dictating 'the right way to do things' should be met with ire. I've never expressed my distaste at this whole fiasco as a veiled way to express...

    What does investigative journalism have to do with this? That can't possibly apply to Kotaku, or RPS. What does it have to do with gaming journalism?

    Art changes when people produce something personal and not because of some trumped up campaign to 'change' art. It may have been that the Futurist Manifesto was a declaration against the past, but...

    There can be a divide between developers and the press, you only have to look at film magazines. Interviews between directors and writers are professional; they aren't afraid to have a laugh, but...

    I don't think 'uniting to tackle cliches' is the go-to way to foster originality in gaming. Literary modernists had a lot of originality going for them but their work wasn't the result of some stuffy...

    Do you still believe the blog post I linked is 'bilge' despite it addressing a point Anita has herself made? Or is it still "Daily Mail Journalism"?

    You only have to look as far as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X to see that there are different approaches to tackling social issues. One of my favourite films is Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing;...

    I'm sure 4chan users and other people you're willing to paint the same colour as misogynists have donated to numerous efforts that tackle actual problems and not superficial guff. The inclusivity of...

    The sad truth of it is that people like you and John Walker still operate under the delusion that this is a two-sided conflict; that there is no middle ground, only black and white; only the...

    I dunno, I'd have every confidence in a developer who works on a project because it's something they can all get behind rather than a project they feel forced into doing with a dreadful product.
