A lot of dumb people in the world. I’ve been told these things too many times.
Now juxtaposed to this quote that kakimari had found:
“video games should not be changed dramatically just because females want to be superior. Understand your place as equals to men”
Which is what has been spewed all day to counter the women in the game industry trend on twitter that has been going around the past 24 hours or so. Andres had summed up these neckbearded comments pretty well as “Sexism won’t go away if you keep talking about it you stupid sluts!” (note, he didn’t say this he’s making a hyperbole of these young white gamer boys feeling threatened by women asking for equal treatment in the community and industry)
what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works
