In Topic: USC Canceled Video Game Panel For Too Many Men

Today, 04:07 PM

This just arrived in my facebook timeline:

 

I think this kinda of stuff is the right way to do it.

 

BUT, I think parents should show those stuff on the internet to theyr sons..I dont like the idea of schools/govern "educating" children, thats too dangerous. Children are too susceptible and there are lots of coconuts out there (In 3rd world countries govern is number one problem and education systems basically ruined). In this case I agree with the content, but what when they do stuff id consider an absurd?

 

School function is to "teach" (knowledge everyone agrees with, even history shouldnt be taught as absolutely unquestionable true, cause not everyone agrees with it either), not "educate" (kinda ambiguous, but do you get what I mean right? Principles and morals should come from family WHILE we live in a society where the individual is highly dependent of it (its the family you turn to when youre fucked by society, theyre the ones backing you up)).

Due culture standards, women are not inclined to pursue stem fields.

Due less women in stem fields, a prejudice is created towards women in stem fields (what the hell is a girl doing here)

 

I think we talked about that on other thread, that prejudice is not against "women" specifically, its against anything that dont fit our standards, its the same prejudice against a handsome model looking guy, or an extremely muscular guy, it doesnt fit -> not the safe option.

 

Show me a study comparing the bias of interviewers against : standard women, fat ugly geek women, handsome model looking guy, overly muscular guy.

If everyone has the same portfolio quality, the priority goes:

fat ugly geek women > handsome model looking guy or standard women(cause from my POV, the standard for women today IS overly carrying about appearances) > overly muscular guy ( cause we just take them for brainless, god knows why)

 

It happens to blacks, it happens to men pursuing dance careers, etc..

 

 

What I want to know is how ppl want to solve this?

 

I just cant see how trying to force this can work. Imagine a company that was totally bias against women. Say a women who was to be rejected, due feminism solution X got the job. Do any girl actually would want to work on that company? Knowing they would not normally hire you? Can you imagine the situation you would be in? Youd be there against theyr will, on a place that dont have respect for you.. I want she to put the company in her blacklist, boycott, never support, pursue better company, be an entrepreneur (create your own company, be successful, buy that company that rejected you, fire everyone, rainbows and marshmallows).

 

The solution is deconstructing biases, thats a hell of a task.

 

To me its all about how do you present reality to children, parents responsibility (not professors, not the politicians,  you cant give this kind of responsibility to ppl who screw society over more than anyone). If you see a girl playing with cars you dont go screw her head saying "thats not girly", if you see a boy dancing you dont screw his head saying "thats not macho". You teach children that they need to fight for what they want (just dont step over other ppl), you teach them to not depend on bad ppl, to have principles, to stand by them, to not subjugate yourself.
Quite the long term solution.

Bethesda games are great, but you need to mod the everloving crap out of them for them to be playable/balanced/content packed.

 

If you want a really action-y long RPG, check out Dragon's Dogma:Dark Arisen.

 

Red alert 2 was better than it's expansion (Yuri's revenge).

 

I was going to mention dragons dogma..the quests are absolutely lame, so be warned to not put expectations on them..dragons dogma shines on gameplay, and its replayablility is amazing. Each time you change classes feels like a new game. Its definetly one of the best rpgs I ever played (Im current playing it, Im lvl 103, and didnt went much far in the dlc, but thats choice)

New vegas is the best 3d fallout there is <3, you should be playing in the nightmare (hardcore?I dont remember) where you need to drink, sleep, ammo weights, etc..its really cool.

I dont really get it.. ppl who pretend to support equality, want to push equality trough being totally unequal?

 

If you have 2 portfolios to choose from, you should get the best one. The claim is that "industry" choose worst portfolios if the better one is from a women...seriously? Thats like saying ppl hate efficiency and money..

 

But even so, lets pretend this is a unconditional true, industry do choose worst portfolios, for the sake of argument. ( Id really love to see some rejected women portfolio, and compare to the companies current employees btw)

 

Then the solution is forcing ppl to choose women portfolios, regardless if theyr better or worse?? Cause to me, the goal would be to make ppl realize they should pick the better ones, regardless of what gender the person is.

 

The moment you want to solve a problem by introducing another, you just being anti ethical...to not say hypocritical. Its not fair to reject the better portfolio, I mean, duh, do this even need to be said..? Is that "for the greater good" line of thinking?

 

I cant see any gender war here, its a huge ass cultural problem, man are not handicapping women, parents who rise lame ass girls are. The geek girl who will study on a stem field will not be rejected. The futile girl who only made makeup till eighteen, found out about feminism, took a month lenght java course shouldnt be picked in the place of the white fat ugly genius guy, just cause white fat ugly genius is the norm.

 

Cancelling an entire event due a women not going, is choosing the worst portfolio, regardless of that lame ass excuse: "look, it worked, were talking about it..." e__e. For that to be ethical, every attendant should be consulted if they consider the time or schedules fucked by this move is worth, cause opinions definitely vary on that matter.

 

Its just to me that "we need help women rise so they get empowered, since they cant do that withouth men help" is a huge ass shot in the feet? Sounds like those ppl who do everything to not be racist "look, Im not racist, I just pet that black kid and gave him a banana".

 

 

When it comes to feminism, Im inclined to the side that wants to "deconstruct" (de-alienated) stuff that only put women in worst situation. Like too much appearance carrying, fragility not being a virtue, the whole "man learns to fight back, women learn to ask for help" stuff.

Can I shift the talkt to....why the fuck wizards dont use heavy armor? Lore is not an excuse, change the lore. Now imagine some wizardly heavy armor with slots to magic runes...join me on this one..having a "supportive" class that rely on backup is stupid u_u**. Logically thinking, armor would only bother ppl who need freedom of movement, like monks, thiefs, etc. I blame tolkien and consecutive d&d stuff.
