VIDEO GAMES ARE SEXIST!
« on: 2009-12-17 20:31:41 »
lol equality now (NSFW)

I'm intrigued by the question "does “killing” a prostituted woman in Grand Theft Auto just reconfirm to a gamer the “lesser value” of women in prostitution generally?". Have they ever played GTA? Players can and do kill anything that moves. (It wouldn't matter if they had, since they love taking things out of context even more than creationists do.)

We've already established that video games are racist if the player gets to kill black zombies as well as white ones, but it seems that they are also misogynistic if the player gets to kill women as well as men. Personally, I think that we should only be able to kill white, middle/upper class males from protestant backgrounds; anything else would be bigoted. :-D

Since Sancom is involved in a feud with "Equality" Now, the article must be taken with a pinch of salt, although I doubt there's any kind of context in which the rantings of this group over the past few months on the subject of games and porn can be seen as anything other than hysterical, ignorant and almost certainly dishonest. For those who don't know, they seriously quote people from 4chan and websites with similar cultures in their press releases as evidence of what there's up against. Perhaps I'll find some extremist (or better yet, satirical) feminist message board where the posters say that men should all be castrated at birth and say that it is an accurate representation of what all feminists think? That's basically what they're doing by taking anons seriously (oh for fuck's sake). Of course, how they react when confronted with internet culture is hardly surprising, since we've seen from the way they interpret Japanese pornography that they have great difficulty understanding any culture other than their own

No. When you go against them, you get bacon, not beef :D



Anyway, Freedom-tan will now be our mascot against aggressive attempts at censorship :-P
