An example of thoughtful critique from the reddit thread, for reference:

Let me save you the trouble, Nalano, and post what you're itching to post anyway.

I did not talk about sides. The person I was talking to was talking about sides. My position is that overblown rhetoric is damaging to the process of finding out what exactly is happening, why it's...

That is a simplification of the debate. Your side of the argument is not simply "We think women should be treated fairly and there should be equality", it involves a whole lot more assumptions about...

I'm very prepared to accept this statement. I even think it's true. But it would be so much better when you bother to offer either argumentation or evidence in support of your point, instead of...

Actually, thanks to the screeching mob of people who only have eyes for one side of the issue and dismiss any thought that might be slightly different ...

I'd say this is pessimistic, but at least we agree that the place, if it exists, is not here.

This is a public service announcement for the people who are trying to have a rational/productive discussion about this topic.
1. Go to this thread and this thread.
2. Read as much of it as you...

That is a very long article in which John Walker refuses to even acknowledge the fact that the problem most commenters had on his use of evidence, and his use of rhetoric beyond what the evidence...

Remember boys, equality = injustice because privilege. This can be stated without loss of generality if you factor out intention.

They just don't know it.

Haha, the plug would get pulled so fast on that one while everyone at Kickstarter falls over themselves apologising; might even draw a plangent op ed or two in purveyors of middle-brow culture like...
Finished it around 4 AM. A thoughtful, beautiful game that should not be judged via others' political hangups and expectations. Play it on normal difficulty, take your time, and remember to play the...

Learn to ... you know what, I'm not going to bother.

Let's not start telling people what they should or should not post where. The OP was perfectly in his rights to post the story for discussion without being told that he is wasting his time.

I'm amazed how you managed to get meaning from that mess of words.
We have to find out if he likes settings menus.

I'm just glad that there are people in the thread now who do not subscribe to the 'It doesn't affect me so I don't care' attitude.

It's perfectly valid to be angry at profiteering and dishonesty. It's also perfectly valid to be aloof and laugh. But I just suspect that some of you who seem to be fine with it are taking that...

That makes everything alright, then.

Despite its over-simplification, there is something to be said for the 'people are dumb' argument. It's not that people are dumber than before, but that more of them have become part of the audience....
