    The more I read feminist writings and attempt to engage in feminist discussions, the more prominent the differences in my outlook vs. theirs (if I may be forgiven for bundling all feminists together...

    MLK was too radical for America then and now too, which is why his popular image has been cleansed of his anti-militarism and anti-imperialism, and his critique of poverty and the economic structures...

    I wouldn't mind the episodes being 5 minutes shorter myself, but the sheer number of examples Sarkeesian uses goes to demonstrating that these are pervasive patterns within the industry rather than...

    I wasn't referring to this particular issue, and I don't think Misnomer was either -- at least, not only this issue.

    At this point I'm not really sure what to think about ZQ/DQ. I'm not troubled...

    I don't see the problem. There's no shortage of other gaming sites out there, even well-staffed ones with high levels of output. It's not exactly like the situation we have here in Australia where...

    This notion of value-free journalism is garbage. There are always men behind the curtain. The difference with RPS is that here they're out on the stage where you can see them.

    In your purely...

    Here is a good piece on the 'Amazon Experience' in the UK.

    I agree that the word 'misogyny' is often overused, and to the broader detriment of language by eliding any distinction between 'sexism' and 'misogyny'.

    However I also think that many cases of...

    Just curious, what difficulty was the Let's Play you watched? I only ever completed the game on normal, but apparently the game systems (e.g. different types of infected) are more meaningful at...

    //deactivate ego protective functions, activate self-analysis mode.

    I'm surprised at how disquieted I am by the thread deletion. I shouldn't be surprised -- I've been positively enraged when it's...

    I take "SJW" as a compliment, but c'mon, this --



    -- made me giggle.

    My favourite part of all this is how the misogynist attack dogs attempt to present themselves in a respectable manner only for the truth to leak out in screeching phrases like "she used her sex!!!"

    I never suggested you endorsed the witch hunt, but nonetheless your actions play into their hands by lending the 'controversy' a respectability which it does not deserve. Sometimes -- as in Ferguson,...

    In some cases it might be worthwhile to attempt to disentangle 'the issue' from its social context, but this isn't one of them. The vile abuse that Zoe Quinn has been subjected to recently goes far...

    The difference is that harassment (let alone sexual harassment) of one person by another is considered a matter for social engagement by all civilised peoples. Infidelity, in contrast, is considered...

    Ars Technica just reviewed Depression Quest. For those unfamiliar, Ars is a tech site that only occasionally reviews games. I can't help but wonder if the recent 'controversy' brought the game to...

    Lagaan was my introduction to Indian cinema! It's a great film, I agree.



    I haven't see it, no. My unofficial rule for exploring Indian cinema so far has been to limit myself to post-2000...

    Aamir Khan is probably my favourite Bollywood star and it has nothing to do with his acting! Obviously Satyamev Jayate is a new milestone, but it continues a running theme in his work of engaging...

    rockman -- I disagree with your thesis about there being a link between monocultures and corruption. If anything I would expect it to be the other way around with monocultures being more cohesive,...

    Did you just describe India as a monoculture? I think I need one of those facepalm/epic fail GIFs. India is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

    EDIT: here's one study on comparative...

    Not sure what's particularly rational about pursuing a path to extinction, to say nothing of more philosophical objections.

    Of course the greatest incentive for developing nations to get ahead in...

    Thanks for clarifying -- that was the main point of difference I was thinking of in linking the other review. I suspect you're probably right about where it comes from too, i.e. seeing the film...

    In theory, and for most developers, I agree with you; in practice I find it hard to say no to Blizzard cinematics!



    Problem is that most people won't finish the game. You'd be locking an...

    I thought you were referring to the motive for the rebellion, but in any case that's a pretty flippant interpretation of what happened. A psychologically exhausted Chris Evans was temporarily swayed...
