This is very close to the anime Psycho Pass

    Do you agree that women need to be showing they are under attack from people who are doing so because they are a woman, and that people currently claiming they are under harassment because of their gender have not shown that this is so?

Yes to a point, I don't think anytime a woman says they are being harassed that we demand instant proof, sometimes that's not possible but we can't dismiss her claim, you don't have to believe she was harassed but at least believe that she thinks she was harassed. What is harassment to you might be different to her (though it's very clear what harassment is)

Anita for example has proved numerous times she has been harassed and people still think she's just doing it to herself. Harassment is any kind of wanted attention, especially if it persists after they asked you to stop. Felicia Day got doxxed right after talking about GG and being scared of that happening.

My point is that being called an idiot, dick or asshat online is nowhere near as offensive or threatening as rape/death threats and gendered slurs like cunt, bitch, whore that women seem to get , not to mention the classic "get back in the kitchen" everyone is expected to laugh at but one male tears mug lights all their asses on fire and all of a sudden women are misandrists .

    From what I have observed, this flat out is not true. Perhaps it happens in low quality, idiot-territories, that I don't visit, but I have never seen this happen

Not to be rude but have you seen rapes happen? Things can happen that you won't see. I have plenty of friends who are skeptical about the validity of female gamer friends who have said they were harassed. A lot of the time it's not even via voice chat in game, it can be after the game with messages or stalking.

Though here are what it sounds like when it happens via voice so you know what it's like

I knew about him before this, it's genuinely sad that out of the very little good people left in the world, they seem to be getting killed off and the guy in the camry was just fine. My religious family would tell me "it's gods plan" No screw that. He was making sick kids around the world feel better and now he leaves behind his own kids

I wanted that game but with the always on online, no thank you.

Shatto  ·  1575 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Some Star Citizen backers who claim full pledge refunds are getting their money back

I've put in about $60-$80 into the game and pretty much forgot about it, it's too large for me to keep updating every couple weeks. It'll be done when it's done, the more overfunded a kickstarter project is the longer it's delayed and my god was it over funded.

Same, I was glad they were giving money but thought the actual challenge was kinda stupid and going overboard but it's what made it's go viral and helped them make so much

Oh of course, completely.

And I love that GamerGate is having such a fit over it.

I came because Reddit has too many hissy fits like it's some mystical safe haven land. I love the discussion here better

I agree, I was brought here too by Reddit :P

Just sad to see there isn't a huge amount of activity here but maybe that's because the posts are quality and it's not a bunch of shitposting and karma whores

Shatto  ·  1626 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: List of ethical concerns in video games (partial)

Women are more often attacked using rape threats, sexual harassment, gendered slurs, etc. Men not so much. A man online won't be so quick to say he's going to rape another man for fear of being laughed at by peers calling him gay. Saying you're going to rape a female, is met with hoots and howls, at worst silence but rarely dissent.

Shatto  ·  1626 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Reddit has done it again

I'd never go to voat if it was the last bastion of "great" communities with all the toxic redditors now circle jerking it over there, fuck that noise.

Then isn't it technically viable and legal for them to let go of someone who isn't able to do the work so they can find someone who can?

Shatto  ·  1626 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Parts Of Social-Sharing Site Reddit Go Dark In Apparent User Revolt : The Two-Way : NPR

Exactly, everyone is posting Voat as an alternative, we could use a little advertising just to get the site activity up, any asshats will quickly be put on ignore.

Shatto  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, why is Reddit compared negatively to this website?

You can't separate a site by the amount of different links within the domain, you judge it as a whole. Especially if that whole is a majority and constantly on the front page.

Ah my bad then

And AQW, I don't care enough to link it since I personally feel it has gone downhill but I met my girlfriend of 5 years through that game in a way so I have to give it SOME credit.

Awesome, thank you!

Shatto  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What does it mean to be a father?

I'm not a dad, hell I'm not even a male but I know that being a father is far more than being the biological parent. It's about responsibility and love, tough love and wanting the best for your child.

I did not grow up with my father but my grandfather, he was the most caring man I've ever known and loved us all so much, I even took to calling him dad along with my mother and aunt. I eventually found my real father, he'd moved on and created his own life and I have multiple other sisters. I do love him and I really don't blame him for anything, I just want to spend time with him but he wants to play video games all the time after work till he goes to bed. Sometimes I wake up from a dream where I hug him and I just miss him, he however is afraid I'll go after him for back child support and that I just want his money, because of this he never sends me anything during holidays or my birthday or spends anymore than necessary on me

Money isn't important to children, beyond basic care. It's love and time.

Disingenuous

Shatto  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How do you describe God in 1 word,?

I agree. This is why I have a hard time with math as a concept, I need to be able to learn how something works, why it works, the history of it etc, numbers are simply a construct we came up with as a means to measure the world and communicate, I can't feel or touch a number, it's all in your head.

I'd be all for this as I have bouts of depression but as others have said, it's best to not make it an echo chamber, we want to be supportive, but not to the point that if someone is having a serious issue, we just rub their back and tell them everything is fine

Shatto  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: List of ethical concerns in video games (partial)

    that's what happens to anyone on the internet with an opinion any group does not like.

This is true but only women are attacked for their gender.

In fact anyone not a straight white male is attacked for who they are.

So all these issues are not actual ethical issues but the stuff GG is fighting, is? Just trying to be clear
