Who is trying to prove that misogyny doesn’t exist? Gamers just dont think it permeates our society in the way she makes it out to.
They also dont believe every microagression she nitpicks in her videos has an impact on society as a whole or creates misogynistic people like she also claims.

Who is trying to prove that misogyny doesn’t exist?  People like this guy:


Bullshit. Saying that a specific situation might not be the result of misogyny (while perhaps wrong) is not an attempt to disprove misogyny.
Also even if it were an attempt to disprove the existence of misogyny (which it clearly isn’t). His actions alone do not represent the entire gaming community.

This original post and bdx777’s reply to it were both about anita sarkeesian. MRAs routinely deny that misogyny exists, at least in the West, and this is honestly pretty typical of their bs.  Don’t pull an NAM on me.  Who cares if not all gamers/men do this; the point is that more than enough of them do.

Yes im well aware of who the original post is about, if you had paid attention you’d notice i referenced her in my original comment. Again, at no point did the person you mention suggest that misogyny does not exist (or at least not in any source you have provided).Now you’re mentioning MRA’s even though we’re talking about gamers (there is a difference, despite what you may think) and in the same breath telling me what i can and can not say. Now it seems you’ve abandoned you’re original position and simply asserted that despite the fact that most gamers believe misogyny exists that “enough” dont.Please stop.

Feminists: “You cant compare rape with theft because you’re comparing women to objects!”

Feminists: “imagine men are a bowl of m&m’s…”

"I work for Reuters. I’m a journalist in the media business.

Back in 2008, I sat in a conference and reviewed some proposals to integrate news sources focused on electronic gaming into our RSS service as niche content providers.

We considered IGN, Gamespot, and a few other syndicated online info feeds.

Now, in order to white label a source as affiliated with Reuters, you need to run through a checklist of ~100 items that are necessary for journalistic integrity. The source and its organization has to score at least a 60 out of 100 for it to be considered fair and unbiased.

These tests are carried out by senior journalists, editors, and investigators.

NONE of the gaming publications scored higher than a 15. For reference, the National Enquirer scored a 38 and the MSNBC blogosphere scored 44.

Some failures included:
- Economic ties with publishers
- Acceptance of favors
- 0% of staff held journalism degree
- Very small percentage worked in other major publications
- No real editing process
- No accountability

tl;dr: Gaming “journalism” is a joke and the laughingstock of reporting media. Continue to read these publications if you want, but assume that everything you read is biased or an outright lie.”

Based Sommers

Christina Sommers is a famous feminist scholar and her comments on the “gamergate” conspiracy are the best I’ve seen.

Ok, can someone explain to me what “based” means here. I’ve seen it left and right, and first time I saw it I thought oh someone misspelled biased and thought they were trying to read her with hate. But it certainly isn’t a typo. Explain please, someone! Because I love CHS and want to know what people mean with tagging her as “based”

"Based" is a colloquial term that, I believe, started as a description of someone who just doesn’t give a damn what others think. Rapper Lil’ B, also called Based God, swung the term to mean someone who’s outstanding in every way. You can replace money, cars, and fame with whatever qualities make C.H. Sommers "based." It just means the person is awesome, is all.

The respect I have for this woman is boundless.

*white guy voice* this lady is so based.
