    The usage could have meant several things in context. I was asking the author of the post to clarify their points. Not you to be trite about language. I'm well aware words have more than one meaning....

    What bothers me about the association of female gamers with casual games is not that it would surprise me. There are all sorts of weirdly gendered traditions and practices.

    What bothers me is that...

    I don't see what's so objectionable about the post. I don't agree with the underlying philosophy of it, but I don't think it's a particularly unreasonable or untenable approach.

    You have my shield, but I'll leave my sword in scabbard for now. I have an outspoken campaign against the concept of hypocrisy and that ties in with relevant reservations on this particular matter...

    My partner has the rather interesting experience of being Hispanic but not looking Hispanic to white people who's image of Hispanic is "Stereotypically Mexican." Her mother hails directly from...

    Hmm. That doesn't quite answer my question. Or maybe it does? As best I can tell then, you can't make the case that institutionalized racism doesn't exist against white people or sexism against men....

    Huh. RPG Maker and various games made with it are all on sale over on Steam. I think it's normally quite expensive; it is presently going for $17.

    My school's gaming society was mostly female back in college and I have always known female gamers--both of my sisters play. My younger sister was way more into Elder Scrolls than I was.

    I flip-flop with an inclination toward disagreeing. I think to understand systems of power we have to remember the dialectic of the individual and the group. What defines a group is not necessarily...

    Thanks for the article. :) It's very interesting.



    Also: YES.

    Though I should add I'm quite familiar with feminism, academic and more public. There is not enough time in the day to fully...

    WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Though actually, that's probably not enough. Should have sold it for a Trillion.

    I think the main danger for Microsoft here is that Minecraft might be a saturated market and Mojang's Next Big Thing is in no way a guaranteed success. Notch's Next Big Thing is much more likely to...

    My parenthetical is important here: I'm not saying the should be doing that. Rather, painting feminism as something other than a female rights advocacy movement is odd and perhaps counterproductive....

    Oh, I'm just having fun. I actually get a bit annoyed when people try to pretend hipster is a well defined thing with any amount of stubbornness. My general remark on the matter is "I don't believe...

    Yeah, it's not about genre. It's about the speaker's personal perception of mainstream. But for the same reason. Hipsters would hate Braid. See, CoD is mainstream trash and Braid is even worse--it...
