Can playing video games alter a person's behavior?
If someone is easily inflcuenced they will be influcenced by whatever media they consume. Of course that includes vidya, but it's no worse than any other form of entertainment.
The double standard is not really existent. It is just how different people are able to advertise their bullshit in different ways. The "videogames cause violent behaviour" movement was primarily a real life phenomenon, the "videogames cause misogynist behaviour" crowd is primarily an internet phenomenon (that occasionally swaps over into the real world, unfortunately). Both movements got their fundings from idiots, both will try to take action one way or the other.
I think video games are more likely to make someone violent than sexist. Though both claims are total bullshit.
What's up with all the Jack Thompson threads lately? He didn't seem too bad compared to what we have to deal with now.
that is the dumbest fucking argument ive ever seen
there are legitimate complaints you can have here about both of them, but you went straight for "I HATE WOMEN".
That guy on the left has a ton of money himself and he's constantly pushing the law to try and get video games banned or reduced. Anita got autism bux from white knights and spineless faggots, so i dont even see what the point is, here, since the man is actually closer to making a difference than the woman
fuck you, you make everyone with a legitimate argument look bad
so is OP trying to actually have a discussion or just bait out shitflinging about sexism. because this thread seems exactly like "what's your favorite alien video game" and all the replies are just ayy lmao
No. She really cannot debate or anything because Jonathan McIntosh writes her scripts and edits all her videos.
She herself does not play or like games. They just created this gamer girl persona in order to make money off of feminists and idiot gamers.
The fact is right wing outlets have been saying this bullshit and they've been completely ignored, laughed ta, mocked and ripped apart by the gaming press. And they should've been because it was retarded.
But now left-leaning people are making the same arguments, and all of a sudden the gaming press are hopping on the bandwagon. Claiming of course video games affect the way we think. Of course they make us misogynist and change our world view. Of course they negatively impact the way our children think and behaved.
OP is an idiot because he picked specific examples and presented it as a man/woman issue. It's an issue of wanting to appear progressive and liberal. The hypocrisy is rank.
God, i remember that one "videogame idea" she had.
And im pretty sure that it was only made to give her gaymur cred.
Nothing about gameplay, just Jennifer Hale talking about some princess getting caught, and then fighting the patriarchy.
I'm not the guy who made the image nor the one who posted it, stop being a turdburger.
Once again, a quote is still relevant even if it was him who said it.
It could have been said by fucking Kim Kardashian for all it matters, a quote that stands true, especially in a particular context, stands alone from who said it.
Or maybe I'm just being fucking rused. Or maybe you're one of those people who genuinely DOES get offended.
All you were doing was calling me a troll how was this discussing anything?
Nice way to flee the conversations by bringing SJW's into this
>dont disagree with me or ur bait!
>Still trying to reel them in after you revealed you were fishing for rage with
>Wahhhh plz dont take away my dead childerens hobby!
Stop before you embarrass yourself son. Back in my day trolling meant something.
Rememeber guys; a girl who doesn't want to play as a man must be respected but a guy who doesn't want to play as a girl is a horrible sexist pig.
Anyone on /v/ with any sensible self respecting intelligence knows that these SJW threads can't amount to anything more than shit posting general.
Its sad that your to new to know this.
>If you are a woman
Let me just bring up this point.
Hillary Clinton tried to ban Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas because it has a sex mod, and she was told to fuck off just like Jack was.
What you should have said is "If you are an attractive woman".
But the same goes for /pol/ or any place where you discuss society or politics. I doubt anyone here will come up with any new super ideas or arguments against or for something but it's fun to talk
>Its fun to talk
Until it becomes no better than /s4s/ and only exists to infuriate. You'd be surprised how often people just rush into a conversation, act like they know everything, and tell everyone else to fuck off even if they have dissenting facts.
>Same goes for /pol/
Exactly. The easiest way to play this game, is just, not play at all.
Anita and Jack are both extremes of the left and right. How you view politics alters how you view the situation.
In reality, they are both crazy and try to get videogames to promote their agenda and promote censorship.
Jack accused video games of causing mass murders, I don't think Anita accused games of actual rape cases.
Factoring in her being (slightly) more sane, and her playing the victim card makes her more likable, as well as threatening.
>Reading the posts in this thread
>That one guy in particular
This was my first visit to /pol/.
I just thought it was a board where feminists and niggers got BTFO'd, the fuck is this weird shit. Whats going on. People on 4chan don't really believe this do they? Peoples horrible shitposting aside, I thought we were more reasonable than the mouth breathers in society.
This is just like, tumblr in reverse.
>Can asking a question like this to a biased community produce any significant discourse?

>endorse genocide by the jews
Yeah if you're a retard who can't separate fiction from reality
>The shameful influence of games like SK
I'm assuming he means Senran Kagura. I don't get how they think it's a 'shameful influence' when the game has a diverse all-female cast, but I guess big tits are bad for some reason.
>but you went straight for "I HATE WOMEN".
What's on that picture that makes you think he hates women ? I think you should go back to tumblr.
> I'm talking about the general tendency humans have to disapprove of male violence against women, and to protect women from harm.
>This is a general tendency in humans. I'll ask you to read President Theodore Roosevelt's 1904 state of the union address, where he talks about his campaign to bring back the whipping post (which had been banned in most states) specifically as punishment for men who beat their wives. Corporal punishment was the proper way to deal with such men, if he took 30 lashes at the public post, he would still be able to work and support her.
>This is a much different picture than feminists like to paint of a patriarchal society that has always condoned violence and emotional terrorism against women as a means to an end, part of a concerted campaign to keep women in their place. While I would agree that such attitudes are paternalistic, women did not (and still don't) seem to have much problem reinforcing them. Most of our domestic violence legislation and policy is based on similar reasoning, and was largely designed by feminists. When you can convince a feminist that men are about half of the victims, they will usually respond that it's somehow different--that the motivations are very different, or the negative effects on victims are ever so different, or that injury rates are overwhelmingly different--even if the data indicates otherwise.
>We also see it in online trolling, abuse and harassment of women in particular, as if a phenomenon that is more likely to affect men (and there's some evidence of this) is mysteriously worse when it happens to women. Abusive comments and trolling are mundane when they happen to men, but it's systemic misogyny and an attempt to "silence women with opinions on the internet" when women are affected. It was just the internet doing what the internet does until women started to complain about it--now they demand (and in some cases have enacted) legislation to deal with it.
Third wave feminists are happy to hold double standards, and their ears are completely closed to anyone who wishes to point them out. They'll continue insisting that they're right to threaten free speech, push a sexist agenda that paints men as stupid and evil by default (i.e. sexual objectification, the idea that men are dumb monkeys that can't look at a woman's chest and trust her to take care of her tasks at the same time because they're viewing her as nothing more than a useless sex object, and as such need to be ridiculed whenever sex is on their minds; this is mainstream feminism), and literally ruin people's lives just because they're uncomfortable with something, and that good people will be more than happy to center their lives around the feminist's feelings.
>But I'm a rational feminist!
The rational ones realized that you're not accomplishing anything more by gearing yourselves towards favoring women (as compared to towards social equality; not the same thing, regardless of how much that doesn't align with your precious emotions) and departed from that boat a long time ago. Feminism will always think of their little circle of women first. It's right there in the name.
I think it's more like it feeds into their ego by letting them feel like champions of justice rushing to the aid of the weak, which is far more sexist than condemning feminists for demanding that their feelings be catered to like a bunch of children.
Freud was a crackhead.
>there are legitimate complaints you can have here about both of them, but you went straight for "I HATE WOMEN".
This is a failure of basic abstract thinking, which is literally what the autism disorder is all about.
Freud said that everything that people do is motivated by a desire to get laid.
Freud loved cocaine.
Cocaine abuse leads to paranoia and other delusions.
Calling Freud a crackhead is a joking way of saying that it's not all just about getting sex.
Only if they are idiots which should be shamed.
Video Games are mostly the way they are because mostly guys play them while girls mostly play mobile. However there is nothing wrong with changing it up, problem is that when they do, its by the obnoxious side.
Except it's not. Freud insisted that humans wanted to fuck pretty much everything. (at least until people started calling him homo for liking cigars)
Humans seek happiness. Sex is a powerful and primal source of happiness (to the point where it's one of our basic needs), but it's just one source of many.
In the case of a white knight, relieving some dumb childish bitch that he'll never meet again of personal responsibility feeds into his delusional fantasy of being a champion of justice and makes him feel good about himself. Dreams of sticking his head between a new pair of boobs aren't necessarily tied into it in even a secondary fashion.
>Sex is a powerful and primal source of happiness (to the point where it's one of our basic needs), but it's just one source of many.
Which is what Freud says. Libido defined as "sex drive" is a narrow definition not found in Freud's work, he defined it as "life drive" which is a broader concept.
I'm no white knight or feminist, but don't drag my favorite psychologist's name through the mud for their sake.
Browsing 4chan for a year made me sociopathic.
Yes, but no more than any other media forms can influence someone.
My rule of thumb is that it's up to parents to exercise some level of control over what media their kids control until they're old enough to make independent and rational decisions.
>Can playing video games alter a person's behavior?
Okay, being 100% honest with myself here, if someone is YOUNG enough, overly violent material while they're still developing can have an ill effect. They won't suddenly become murderers, like that fucker Thompson likes to pretend, but it has an effect, just like a child watching his dad beat someone. There's some desensitizing there.
However, that's why we have a ratings system. That's why parents have a means to see when something is not appropriate for their child. You can't full-blown have the government raising everyone's kids, you have to leave things to parents and personal responsibility.
That said, the effect of a video game, while it IS there for someone young, is not serious enough to warrant being worried that it'll cause them to shoot a school. That's just ridiculous political posturing.
I do think it's dishonest to pretend that there is absolutely zero effect on the surroundings and media around a child having any effect on him, though, and it bad for the conversation.
Congratulations! After seeing that a large portion of people we have to share air and space with aren't worth that air and space you have come to the conclusion that all people are terrible.
Which is about 70% true
>watch her trope video for the first time yesterday
>mfw she is right
It still seems bizarre to me that seemingly normal people are on this site.
I just assume everyone else is some tourettes riddled potato skinhead or something.
You look like the guy I hired to work on my fucking roof.
The thing is i believe this shit if its some retard who plays nothing but military shooters all day and shit like Halo. Because i've had several overly violent aggressive friends who were like that and only played that shit.
But i grew up on DOOM. I played the shit out of stuff like Ninja Gaiden 2 and reread shit like Berserk once a year. I'm perfect sane and not desensitized to violence. It really depends on the quality and thought a game requires along with the violence.
There isn't a double standard. We're just dishonest to ourselves about video games and other media having a small effect on behavior, because we're afraid of uninformed guys like Thompson getting their way, and old disconnected people in congress going along with it.
Haven't you heard? Liking games with strong female characters makes you a sexist pig.
Ikaruga best girl
Even in that case there is a double standard because everyone just took Thompson for a lunatic.
A womyn fighting the patriarchy will always get more support than a cis scum man fighting supposed violent influences.
Social correctness is apparently more important than physical problem. Because we don't dare ignore or shut up a woman pushing a retarded(or in your case a slightly rational, legitimate) agenda.
>We're just dishonest to ourselves about video games and other media having a small effect on behavior
But, there isn't one.
All studies point to there being no effect on it and no studies point to any effect on it.
If anyone here is dishonest, it would be you.
Maybe you should listen to based Moviebob, he will explain the difference
Her videos have explicitly stated and outlined that sexism in video games needs to stop because it leads to sexist and objectification of women in the real world.
No one is twisting anything.
There absolutely is one. If you ever read the history of film, you'd realize that the usage of film for propaganda is remarkably effective in swaying the views of a populace. This is just one example of how media affects behavior and thoughts.
That's why it's incredibly important to have an open mind and actively be willing to criticize or see aspects of games, films, books etc. Of course the majority of /v/ would prefer to just sit back and play their shitty fanservice simulators anyways. They're as bad as the dumb faggots reading Twilight, and won't shut the fuck up about it just like them too.
>Never actually get to the root of the problem
There is no problem though. You can fucking google it, there aren't actually any peer-reviewed studies that show that there are any adverse side effects to playing video games moreso than excessively enjoying any other form of entertainment.
The root of the problem now is people like you who refuse to believe that the problem isn't video games, the problem is
people. People are sexist and violent if they're predisposed to be sexist and violent. If a sexist violent rapist plays Grand Theft Auto it's not Grand Theft Auto's fault, he was gonna be a violent rapist anyways.
So it's not the first thing
Or the second thing
They literally edited in the footage onto the TV instead of just going on Youtube and stealing the footage and streaming it to the TV like normal people who know how videogames and videogame entertainment works?
No, she filmed herself beating the strippers, so she could make a point about beating these sexualized women and then playing with their half naked bodies. There was no footage of anyone doing that before her video and the game punishes you for doing it.
>Of course the majority of /v/ would prefer to just sit back and play their shitty fanservice simulators anyways.
Which is probably one of the few genres you don't have to be wary of trying to be used for propaganda or other forms of deception and usually offers what it claims.
>Hitman promotes violence against women.
>Game is explicitly telling her DON'T FUCKING KILL CIVILIANS YOU MORON!
>You can even see her score getting deducted in the upper left corner.
Is this a joke or did she actually do this?
>Supports someone who lambasts a game that saved him from committing suicide.
Movieblob has absolutely no respect.
The conversation doesn't go anywhere because there doesn't need to be one because we ask for proof, you stammer and stutter, and we ignore you because you don't have any. Your claims are substance-less.
Propaganda actually was not that effective. In fact it had nearly no effect. People stopped using it because it didn't sway any minds who were already made up, which didn't change anything. So your "proof" which was just anecdotal and not at all peer reviewed study or research at all doesn't pan out at all either.
Studies have not shown that video games can change your behavior.
Fiction does not change your ideological outlook on life. If it does, that's not a problem either.
It MIGHT be a problem if it effects behavior directly.
But it doesn't. There's no proof of that.
There have been studies on TV and film that suggest a link between violent media and real world violence, but the scientific (ie. peer-reviewed, not done by a biased group etc.) studies on video games show no such link
>the man is actually closer to making a difference
>disbarred 6 years ago, literally no one gives a shit about him now
yeah he's uh, almost there, he'll make a difference soon
>Fiction does not change your ideological outlook on life.
It does. Every form of information can alter your perception of reality depending on what your brain makes of it. Fiction will not make you believe dragons are real but it might make you believe that helping those less fortunate than you can be a good thing.
9 federal courts rejected the idea that video games, violent or otherwise would cause aggression.
Exactly why would they cause sexism or an ideological outlook if there's no link between video games and emotional changes or responses?
If you can't even link a basic emotive response, how are you going to link changing someone on a fundamental MORAL level?
>Every form of information can alter your perception of reality depending on what your brain makes of it
It's how each person chooses to interpret the information.
Therefore the claim you're making is disingenuous and any link between video games and sexism is incidental. Not causal.
This is the case with every media, from King Arthur back in the day to fucking Avatar now.
I always love when the media brings up playing video games as a factor for these late teen early 20s males. So many of them play video games the attempt to correlate is ridiculous.
The Hero we deserve
Everything in life can affect you, sure.
But if we cannot rely on family, school and education, informative media, rules, laws and societal norms to help people grow and filter the information around them and have to adjust entertainment so people do not get the wrong ideas, we are quite simply FUCKED.
The violence part is ignored NOW because it was already proven to be false.
It was pretty easy to debunk it using statistics of crime and shit like that.
How are they going to disprove games influencing sexism? Ask gamers if they're sexist?
AAA developers who have a bankroll of money and staff to develop games for them spend an awful lot of time and effort to making their games appease a group of people who will not buy their games. SJWs from all cracks of the internet surface to yell about how cleavage is sexist or how a straight white male character is the holocaust. So the developers pander to this angry vocal minority by changing aspects of their games that were perfectly fine, and the time, effort, and money put into these changes and the resulting publicity stunts could be better served actually improving the game.
The girl is Anita Sarcophagus, a person who started a kickstarter to make a long (I think eleven part) youtube series pointing out sexism in videogames, got $160,000 pledged to her, and proceeded to make a whopping one video before taking the money and running
didn't he get disbarred because he outright lied about donating money to children when he said he would if a condition was met?
Then Penny Arcade did the donation because they knew Jack was a dickhead?
Got it. Help those less fortunate than myself by viewing myself as some stupid monkey who can't view women as hot without thinking of them as a useless sex toy. It might not align with what's actually going on in my head, as evidenced by the fact that I like the character, but the important thing is that some feminist thinks that it's going on, and that hurts her feelings, so I need to stop in the name of her sexist double standard-ridden delusio- er, I mean equal rights.
Also, as a strong white man (one of only two types of people capable of making videogames, alongside Japanese men), it is my responsibility to center the videogames that I make around the feelings of dumb minorities and women.
I truly am a pillar of morality.
I want you to name these AAA developers pandering to SJWs and how they forced them to change.
Because the only developer that does that is Bioware, and they've been doing this shit since fucking Baldur's Gate.
Jack Thompson wasn't ignored and forgotten. He made loads-a-dosh making the cable news circuit rounds and getting speaking fees. You just don't hear about it because it's private income and not kikestarter. Stupid bitch will get hers eventually.
>So the developers pander to this angry vocal minority by changing aspects of their games that were perfectly fine
How often has that actually happened?
>inb4 even once is too much
>people have been saying "I killed it on that test" for decades
>no talk about how this promotes murder
>gamers saying "I owned you" since competitive gaming began
>no talk about how this promotes slavery
>gamers saying "I raped you" online
>THIS IS RAPE CULTURE, TEACH MEN NOT TO RAPE, MUH NORMALISATION
Irrational with Bioshock Infinite is one
Bioware of course
AC updated their multiplayer in the new game
Its a trend I don't want to catch on any more than it already has, but its nice to know our nippon overlords will never give two shits about offending people
unless its with skeletons
This is what happens when you let normalfags and SJW into our hobbie. Thank you everyone.
Of course it was timed just right, her and her scum boyfriend have been trying to pull of scams since before she was in college, they just got lucky with this one and I'm waiting for them to fuck up and burn.
Read this if you can, /v/
Take it from someone who has worked at a psychiatric clinic and talked to psychopaths, schizophrenics and lesser forms of mentally ill people before (I'm from Germany, sorry for any grammatical mistakes)
You have to be already damaged in your brain in order to not be able to separate reality and fiction properly. One schizophrenic guy I talked to was named "Patrick" and he refered to himself as "Patz9", the nine being pronounced as "efgiz" so it was basically "Patzefgiz" which was his strange idea of pronuncing "Pacifist" claiming that he heard that name over and over again in his head and it got more distorted if he ignores it. He stabbed his grandmother nearly dead when they were in the kitchen and his grandmother - who was then unaware of his condition, just Patrick's parents - handed him a kitchen knife to help her cut a chicken into smaller pieces. He visualized that the chicken was secretly his grandmother testing to see if he would cut her, and he thought that he could only prove his awareness of her transformed 2nd person by actually stabbing his grandmother (the real one, not delusional chicken one) in the back a few times. Once she broke down he felt like he stabbed her a few weeks ago and been standing there ever since but he ended up being able to call an ambulance.
Tl;dr Mentally ill people are going to be mentally ill, no matter if it's a violent video game, a song, a knife, or a mere intrusive thought.
Thanks for reading.
Let's not misrepresent all the facts here. She's made like five videos, but all of them have been horrendously past-due. I think her original timeframe was to have the whole shebang done by the end of 2012? It's past the middle of 2014 and she's not even halfway through, yet nobody calls her out on this because that's literally rape, how dare you you fucking shitlord.
She did take the money and run though, that much is patently obvious. Her videos didn't go up in quality after she got paid, and she used footage from LPs instead of recording her own because she obviously didn't buy or play the games. Literally all she does is read TVTropes and rattle off examples.
If I remember correctly, either her or her boyfriend or both are also from money, so it's not like she actually needed any cash for this shit.
>Irrational with Bioshock Infinite is one
>Bioware of course
Bioware hasn't changed, now they just happen to also use this shit as their marketing spearhead.
>AC updated their multiplayer in the new game
That was fucking nothing.
Irrational is dead, Bioware is just being Bioware, and Ubisoft is french so it was only a matter of time before they surrendered. When companies like Rockstar and Platinum Games start pandering to feminists then you've got a problem.
Go back to how "journalists" were covering E3, everything was either muh sexism or muh violence. History is repeating itself, only now the media is on Thompson's side
They changed Liz's model and character a bunch, which has a large influence on the game
as for AC they didn't change anything substantial but they changed something solely because a bunch of tumblrs whined at them. More of a principle thing.
Okay, there are several examples that have been posted on /v/ often.
Like, you ever been driving with your parents in a car when you were a kid, and you knew it would be boring so you brought your gameboy with you? And when the car speeds up, and the windows were open for fresh air, you suddenly had that strange thought of throwing your gameboy outside? You can't think of a rational explanation, but the thought gets stronger the more you think about it? Common theories are that you're actually afraid that your gameboy may fall out, and having the urge to throw it out seems to be your brains reaction? We've had mothers who complained that they can't stop thinking about drowing or kicking their new born, where we reached a similar conclusion. We've observed that she tends to be over-protective of her child, so when she feared that her child might die, an intrusive thought of killing it popped up in her brain. That's basically intrusive thoughts, with the average theory as well.
Yeah I have those all the time, but I knew a chick who would start bawling saying she had an intrusive thought of her dog getting hit by a car while her dog was hanging out in the street and things like that
Is she just over-emotional or is there some other psychological factor at work?
>They changed Liz's model and character a bunch, which has a large influence on the game
They didn't change it because feminists whined. They changed it for internal reasons.
>as for AC
The AssCreed multiplayer has always had female characters. This is nothing new.
If I have a ton of those is there something wrong with me?
They don't involve killing or harm most of the time, just like, "what if I fucking did x thing, it would be awkward as fuck, heh"
Those are intrusive thoughts as well, correct. They're normal for the most part and usually justified as well. It's only bad when it appears in an exaggerated manner - say, she's afraid that her dog will be murdered if you're not feeding him enough. Thoes paranoid-esque thoughts are more common among people suffering from OCD.
>Can playing video games alter a person's behavior?
Being shit at vidya can temporarily heighten a player's level of aggression
Might explain why Anita is being so cunty about video games
Probably just over-emotional. Intrusive thoughts aren't inherently dangerous, only to already unstable people. Your friend just sounds like someone who reacts strongly to things.
You reminded me of that one comic where a guy has an intrusive thought to just punch someone out of the blue in the middle of pleasant conversation, then thinks "no, that's crazy, why would I do that," and then decides to do so anyway, then keeps rolling with his thoughts because why the hell not at that point. That made me laugh a good bit when I saw it the first time.
nigga please she's full of shit, at this point she's just grasping at things to call sexist to stay relevant. just watch her last video, she says New Vegas is sexist because there are female prostitutes and that you can kill female characters and move their bodies around. what she forgets to mention is that those things also apply to male characters and non-humans. either she's intentionally leaving shit out in order to make it look like she's right or she didn't even play it. i'm guessing the latter since it was already proven that most of her footage is stolen.
They're common as well. I myself had these strange thoughts of being at a party, doing some really retarded dance moves in front of people just to see how cringe-worthy it would be. It's usually nothing unique, if it's excessively though, then it could be a bit worse, but just barely. Maybe you're kinda afraid of cringe-worthy things to happen, but that's really uncommon. I'm sure it's just something you do for fun, as weird as it sounds.
How the hell is a black guy smiling at you harassment?

I am so sick of people just judging me based on how I choose to dress!
>I know my dress was "provocative" but I don't want responsability for my actions
Toppest keks right here
If you guys really want to stop SJWs or Thompsons from ruining vidya, why don't you read up on law on find some way to stop them? A cease and desist order for some rule they broke, finding ways to tell their backers how the people they're backing are wrong without being blocked, making your own videos with or without monetary backing showing the truth.
>I know they way I dress is kind of provocative but it doesn't mean that I should have to deal with it
MY MIND IS FULL OF FUCK
I live in Montreal I'm so fucking glad now I have to deal with language oppression than this shit
There have been countless videos countering Anita's claims, but they all just get handwaved away.
All we can really do is ignore her and wait until either her videos or the people who treat her videos like gospel become so crazy that the more moderate SJWs who are just doing it to look "progressive" will look at them and say "what the everliving fuck." You let these people live in their hugboxes long enough, they become totally batshit. See: the entirety of Tumblr.
Thunderfoot gave a link to this video, does she browses this site?
>being stare raped by men
>internet backlash against the victims
stay lonely and mad, littledicks
Do you really think we'll ever get to that point?
>been proven to be factually incorrect in her descriptions of the basic plots of video games
>incontrovertible video evidence that she straight up lied about being a fan of video games
>not followed through on her KS campaign goals
>stolen her "research" from Wikipedia and TVTropes
>stolen her footage and other artwork without permission
and she wins awards. She isn't just taken seriously, she doesn't just do a shitton of interviews and get invited to TED talks, she's won MULTIPLE awards. There is nothing she could do to make people call her on her bullshit.
It's just a matter of endurance. Anyone who actually buys into this crap will get what they deserve in the end. Hell, Tumblr's already having infighting between the truly ludicrously insane SJWs and the moderates, with the insane ones not realizing they're alienating people who might be on their side by doing things like calling for the eradication of everyone who's fine being their actual gender. It's comedy of the highest order.
>change one word
>everything suddenly makes sense
They altered us into hateful powerful wizards, faggot
It is true, us wizards are the most notorious sex offenders, they'll never prove it was us however.
>I know they way I dress is kind of provocative but it doesn't mean that I should have to deal with it
Why? /b/, /co/, /tv/ and /a/ had a feminist fad but it went away before it got horribly annoying. 2 years later and /v/ still has dozens of daily feminist threads. You guys took something the other boards did and drove it into the ground in an annoying way just like reddit.
The most blatant bullshit in Anita's video was her complaint about Hitman Absolution, she basically complained that it was a sex fetish game that encourages killing sexually attractive women because there is one mission in the game where you have to go to a strip club and it's possible to kill two strippers, even though the game obviously punishes you for killing innocent people
I don't know how anyone could watch her videos after that shit, that had to have been one of the most blatantly wrong examples in her videos
Makes you wonder what people who have actually been discriminated feels whem internet warriors make such issues so dramatic and cartoony. But they can't speak up because the SJWs have made it such a militant thing.
Why doesn't anyone ever post that shit on /co/, though? Why is it always
>Marvel makes Thor woman to satisfy female viewers, they get mad because she's hot.
Why can't we get the cannibalization every now and then? I'm not saying I don't believe it's happening it's juat every now and then I want someone to stop shitposting and actually link some inspiring article, like that one time long ago when someone put that report on a woman who went Radical SJW in public and ended up getting arrested.
>/b/ had a feminist fad but it went away
>but it went away
>it went away
You been there recently?
And considering how video game culture is being co-opted by the social justice movement, it's actually a relevant discussion here.
>jack was put in a negative light by gaming media as "le evil anti-videogames man"
>anita was put in a victim complex by gamin media as "all these MISOGYNISTIC SHIEEETLORDS are bullying me for my opinons!"
There's a pretty big difference there.
b doesn't have a hobby, just fucking with people and talking about stupid shit. nothing matters to b.
co has been infiltrated by feminists, they've nearly reached femfag consensus.
feminism can't do shit to tv and movies, and bane and waifu feet are way worse anyway.
It's because it's becoming a bigger issue recently, with game companies and gaming media bending backward for them. SJWs made a mission statement a few years ago to 'invade' gaming. This is not something /v/ has created
The red dot on the forehead essentially means she's married.
But that takes effort! ;_;
Also the dating market is so fucked, 20% of all alpha males get 80% of all of the action. 4/10 women have the same attitude of 10/10 women and I can have my life worried over a false accusation of rape even if I was found innocent afterwards. Fuck the dating market, I may go to pubs to get drunk and meet fellow dudebros but thats it.
That's the point, the gaming media suddenly bends over backwards for Anita and parrots her opinions even after they fought against Jack Thompson because they believed video games didn't influence people to do bad things.
>Also the dating market is so fucked,
So not only is the market responsible for you being unemployed, but it also prevents you from getting a girlfriend! amazing!
The refuge of a true failure.
Can't really fail in a life that is inherently without meaning. I'm content with a simple job, my own house and vidya. If that makes me a loser in the eyes of the world then baby, I'm king of the losers!
Funny how the 'fight for equality' by SJWs is making people more antsy about opposite gender than otherwise. This is some conspiracy to make a gender war or what? Look at people making a buck doing this.
Some people were born to lose.
There isn't a girlfriend for everybody.
It's in fact pretty mean to tell people who are fucked from the start they should believe they can get a girlfriend when they can't.
Why does everyone from the /b/rother boards spout this? /co/ might be decent and not have tons of sjw threads unlike /v/ but they have hated feminism since before /v/ ever did and still do. Not to mention they don't use stupid tumblr memes like fedora, doge and ayy lmoa
>acting retarded on purpose
If you have no status or great looks the only way a man can get a women is being able to buy them things. Can't really do that without a paycheck now can you? Also
>implying I'm a neet and doing anything to improve my life
Majoring in accounting with a 3.6 GPA. I have also been reading health guides and been cleaning up my shitty diet and been taking steps to actually preserve my body. Unfortunately losing weight doesn't fix an ugly face so until I have an income flow I'm fucked.
I'm the guy he replied to, well said.
I may have a chance if I get good paying job but I have already accepted the reality that I will probably be lonely years ago. The only thing that bothers me is the "ANYONE can do ANYTHING if you just BELIEVE IN YOURSELF" retards who keep telling me I should just try harder.
>but you went straight for "I HATE WOMEN"
no, we "hate" women because they show off that they like vidya, they are attention whores
there's few girls here on /v/ but they don't care about showing their gender no, im not a grill, but I have 3 friends who come here pretty often
I'm not religious, but I believe in loving everyone. Even my enemies.
I believe hate and anger are poisonous to a man.
When I espoused this to other tumblrettes and sjws, I was met with hostility.
Part of why they are so poisonous is they are hateful. /v/ may be hateful and angry. But it's not at this level.
In my many years of being here, I honestly believe that in real life, everyone here has humanity. I believe that on tumblr, no such humanity exists. And I am actually sad about that. They drive a rift intentionally between them and the people they want to be "equal" with.
A grand irony.
I have a fetish, is there a connection with people like me and furries? I'll be first to admit the community is majorly fucked up and weird (FA is at least) but I never took part in it for
>/v/ arguing video games and media doesn't cause violence
>little girls trying to sacrifice their friend to the slender man
>/v/ not understanding most people are easily influenced and sociopathic
The Mirror's Edge games are congruent with what she was saying there ought to be more of -- female protagonists. So I would assume she was 'consulted' not on taking things away, but on making the heroine believable (or whatever the fuck).
Who IS this nefarious "player" she keeps referring to like it's fucking Dennis Rader or something?
Or is it not actually her sitting there deliberately committing unnecessary acts of wanton violence in a fucking stealth game?
If you're asking for specific games she wants to be censored I don't believe she's named any or campaigned for any to be censored, she's attacking the video game industry as a whole. She wants to change every game.
>In my many years of being here, I honestly believe that in real life, everyone here has humanity. I believe that on tumblr, no such humanity exists. And I am actually sad about that. They drive a rift intentionally between them and the people they want to be "equal" with.
>What if I try really really REALLY hard to drive home my point, maybe THEN they'll reply to me and love me and make the pain and sadness go away!
Seriously though, it's great to hear you say that one should love even their enemies, respect to you bro.
>/co/ is tumblr when most threads are waifus or cheesecake
>/co/ is tumblr when there's constantly feminism bitching threads
>/co/ is tumblr because most threads about cartoons are made is to market some obscure female character and get people to draw porn of her
>little girls trying to sacrfice their friend to the slender man
Sounds like the bitch was just crazy.
Don't worry anon, we knew <3 Have an adorable puppy
I am always, and I mean always surprised when people fall for scams.
>Just send me money so I can get my money back to pay you
>I will buy your product with a money order
>Sign up for 'How to be successful in 10 days'
I remember growing up a red nose portrayed in art meant a drunkard because of the broken blood vessels or something.
No anon. Feminist love cheesecake don't you know? I mean I never been to /co/ but I know it's tumblr because someone told me it was just like how /v/ is reddit because /a/ says it is.
Because this sure doesn't happen in real world at all.
And internet feminists surly don't have any impact on actual games whatsoever.
people bitching about them certainly did.
but it's just two popular and airing cartoons in the nearly 100 years history of animation, you're blowing things out of proportion.
Try having your country be invaded by feminist shits.
Violent games don't cause people to go out and shoot up schools, but they do desensitize people to violence and can result in jingoist attitudes. It's not just a video game problem, though, it's a societal problem because the same thing happens as a result of other media.
Has there ever been a serious sociological/psychological study on the concept of white knighting? Its clearly a very real phenomena, most likely rooted man's natural instinct to be protective of females, but seriously, what the fuck? It clearly also overwrites all logic. Are we really more bestial than we thought?
How are my college bros handling all the feminist shit?
>sitting in class
>professor orchestrating irrational SJW discussion among students
>can't speak up without being completely ostracized and having people call me a sexist faggot
>learn to sit there and deal with it despite my insides raging
Not more than any other media can, no.
But that doesn't make sense. The last time I was on a forum euros were always mocking americans for having gun violence and how they have basically non because they banned all of them.
This this this. The other thing that Thompson has against him is he's an old white man and a fucking retarded piece of Christian faggot shit. So when SJWs were in hiding/in the very early infancy stages of SJW, before Barack Saddam Hussein Obama came into office, he had no credibility at all, since the only people who would take his word seriously was fucking retarded piece of shit Christians and old white conservatives.
Although what helped was Jack Thompson self destructed by making up lies and having a record of being a stalker and making threats to people who don't agree with him, in the name of his fucking false God. Too bad none of the conservative media outlets pointed that out.
Still, there were some liberals out there who said he did it just for attention, instead of going after his religion. Quite unfortunate.
Only reason why jew bitch Anita is getting a free pass, is because it's liberalism and the big gaming companies and gaming media are paying her and protecting her. They're using sexism and gay rights as a shield from criticism and employment rights.
This too. Let's be honest...They all deserved to be destroyed. The left and right wings are corrupting the world and the minds of people. The people controlling the world, that whole New World Order shit that conspiracy theorists are talking about are just laughing at being able to manipulate both sides for their own advancement while the people who knows what is really going on, suffer. Those goddamn fools don't know they're being used as pawns.
And the worst part about it is we can't do shit about it unless we decide to nuke ourselves to oblivion.
Gaming is truly dead.
It helps to find the right professors, which is easier if you go into a major far away from the humanities. That's where they live.
Over five years of a comp sci degree, I had zero truly batshit SJW professors. I almost had one in my last semester in a history class, but I nope'd the fuck out of there as soon as she said that one of her themes for the course was going to be race/class/gender. Shit you not. Luckily I got into a different history course and had a great professor, so it worked out alright in the end.
I did have another professor in a lit class my last semester who very briefly touched on feminist stuff, but she seemed fairly moderate on the whole and didn't bring it up very often, and only when it made sense to. She was also really fun to talk with, so I let it slide.
Lower your fucking standards then. A vagina is a vagina. All women are fucking crazy and you'll have to put up with their shit one way or another. Or you can be lonely, either way it doesn't matter.
>Still, America sees far more gun violence than countries in Europe, and Canada, India and Australia, which is perhaps how it gets its bloody reputation among comparatively peaceful nations.
so he was bullshitting?
Pedophile samefag detected.
I think being lonely is better than putting your dangalang in a 500lbs hambeast infected with skin infections and health problems galore which you have to pay out of your pocket to support.
White knights are fucking pussy whipped faggots, desperate for some pussy. They are actually fucking stupid enough to think women would respect them, when women just wants to control the men and use them.
They're absolutely fucking retarded.
That's not what I'm saying at all. But I'm pretty certain you can find a woman bordering on rational who's slightly below average. I had no trouble doing it and I only have 9 fingers and terrible burn scars from an accident I was in when I was 14.
>desensitize people to violence
Bullshit. It desensitizes us to violence we know to be fake, not to real world violence. Yea, we see people dying in games and movies all the time, but if that something like that happened in front of us, we'd shit our pants.
Maybe you can make the argument that it might desensitize people to violence that doesn't affect them, but I would also claim bullshit. Most people don't care about things that don't affect them, violent or not.
>discuss how humans develop gender specific traits that are also common in other species and how society than strengthen them in a scientific manner
>no sjw in sight
>got american textbook on human sexuality
>not particularly sjw-based either
>I love Italain University after all
The people in your nation must be a problem, anon
I don't think you understand what ugly means. To actually be born with terrible features that make you look like an abomination is a hell of a lot different than being average or slightly below average looking and having some burn scars and missing a finger. Unless you're burnt all over your body and face and you look like a giant mound of flesh, then that's bullshit.
I find it hard to believe that you're that ugly. Sounds to me like you're just insecure. What's the worst that can happen? Acne? Big nose? Overbite? Underbite? Unless you look like a downie on ketamine I find it hard to believe you're as ugly as you say you are. Maybe you are though, I wouldn't know.
John Walker sees through different eyes than the rest of us
Fuck man, I have these all the time and they always make me feel shitty because it's always something horrible and/or downright ridiculous.
Like I'll be out with a group of friends having a good time, and I'll just think "what if I just start pissing everywhere and start singing 'Little Girls' by Oingo Boingo? And after that, I'd randomly stab my best friend in the eye? Sure I'd get arrested, but what would everyone's reactions be like?"
I had that exact thought once. And it makes me feel terrible because just the thought of me stabbing my best friend makes me sick to my stomach, that I could even think such a thing. Luckily I'm not a retard and would never do such a thing. I just wish I could control the crazy shit my mind makes up sometimes.
This one is way worse.
correlation does not mean causation you fuckwit mongloid.
Jesus christ, at least TRY to look like you're not new as fuck.
Watch this entire video, it explains what that push-friend-off-ledge feeling is.
