To be fair, the fact that you dismiss Sommers as a feminist, evidences otherwise. There are also some important differences between first, second and third wave feminists. There is also some pretty...

Maybe this Wikipedia article can help you further:
According to this typology, I'd consider most feminist journalists in the gaming press as gender feminists. While the overarching goals of...

You people may find this very enlightening, feminism explained through evolutionary psychology. It's an academical review citing peer reviewed studies on gender equality (long article):

A couple more reactions. I'll refrain on commenting on them.

I'd like to contribute, unfortunately it's a steam gift and I can't get the activation key. So the first person who dares sending me his steam ID over private message, will be blessed by this truly...

Erik Kain over at Forbes wrote a pretty good retrospective on the whole controversy:
This is amazing, much obliged :)
That guy sounds like the narrator of "The Stanley Parable", is that him?
I know. Unfortunately there isn't very so this topic will have to suffice for now. I was hoping that we could pool our resources together and see what we can find.
I will try to aggregate our...
So I've been watching errant signal's take on Watch Dogs and I mostly agree with the video.
Good ol' Abe said is thusly:
The game is a potpourri if different game mechanics strung together by...

You have to say it 3 times.

Who, minorities? I think they can speak for themselves. It's just funny that so many of them are making themselves heard, considering the evident lack of diversity among gamers.

If you don't try, you've already failed :)
It's funny how TFYC have been criticized for piggybacking this controversy. It's nice to see that the founder of Silverstring Media is doing the...

It's a sad world you're living in.

Thanks for proving my point, yet again :)
Wow, thanks for that delightful insight, I've never thought about it in that way. Now that you say it' it's true. I have no particular dislike for Mass Effect 3's ending, it was the storyteller's...

Read again, it's not only about the language but also the message. I like ActionPoint's take on this (starts at 4:44):

It's true that she has become increasingly influential in the gaming industry, but not entirely for the better. "Killing dreams" and proclaiming that "I AM games journalism" makes it evidently clear...

If you can accept the statement, that males and females should have equal opportunity, as the lowest common denominator, then yes, we certainly are on the same side :)
That's true, but...
It's not that much of a stretch since there actually exists tons of literature about it. Or this book, for teachers, which is in german language though. Or my link from the University of Washington....

Yep, just like I believe that there are a few people in the world that strongly hate women. These are the people responsible for the harassment and that needs to be stopped.
No, but these people...

According to Samantha Allen, it does very evidently exist.
I agree, racism is racism and can be done by anybody, unfortunately.

No offense taken. As you said, I can't speak for either movement, but I don't think that allying with extremists and radicalists is a good idea. I've seen it happen between humanists and religious...

The only people I claimed were doing so are the extremists, like Yiannopoulos (misogynist) and Samantha Allen (misandrist). Both have a voice in this controversy and both are clearly driven by hate...
