Feminism needs a new label and actual focus on male issues as well. Think about it, do most feminist movements actually strive towards fixing male issues as well, or do they only really focus on issues women face?

Feminism is needed in third world countries, but what we need is an organization that strives towards equality between the genders without being ridiculous and whiney.

but the real issue is that we have this thing called feminism. We DON'T need it, in fact most people get on fine without it. You have no reason to be a feminist if you're under 50
and not living somewhere in the middle east or asia where there is segregation based on their culture. other than that we should jsut be treating each other as people and guess what we ARE different. There isnt this big issue with rape where all guys believe it's ok or would even think about doing it, but like guys women also have to take care of themselves. Theres nothing in the so called gaming community that is anti woman, nor should anyone be particularly mindful of weather or not a gamer "has tits". She gets ripped on like anyone else and from experience most women that play games don't give a shit and also give it back. Women have been in the industry for a long time and always welcome. (Sierra Online anyone?)
These modern "feminists" and SJW''s (warriors lmao) need to stop lying. We need each other

The only issue here is, why wouldn't we tell women to try to dress a little less, for lack of a better word, "slutty?" As terrible as it is, there are ALWAYS people who are going to rape others. 99.9% of society, male and female, knows that rape is wrong, and would never do such a thing, but that 0.1%? If they see a target, they're going for it, and dressing scantily is like painting a bullseye on yourself. No, it's not fair, it's not okay, but no amount of "don't rape" lectures will change that 0.1% of people. Self-defense, and dressing modestly, may be the best bet, as fucked as that is.

We tell them these things because they work. If the goal is for them to lower the chances of getting raped by someone who really doesn't care if what he is doing is wrong.
In what way? Because gamers do not hate women only posers and political tards.
So online you mean? Like trash talking like men do to other men all the time?

And in what way is modern feminism necessary? Not the women's rights movement which is separate from feminism but the ideological ideas of patriarchy, privilege (that is only ever going to be used one way) and the notion of a rape culture because this is what defines feminism from every other group that believes in equality.

Harassment is not cool, but would ya rather never be harassed because you are ugly? I think not. As for feminism, the problem with it is simple. It tries to be what it isn't, and isn't what it tries to be. It's not about equality. It's about females. It claims for equality, but is inherently gender biased. Truth be told, absolute equality is a great inequality. Modern society doesn't need "feminism" but middle eastern (largely islamic) and other such societies would probably benefit from it. Considering the literal oppression.

And not all feminists are against self defense classes either. Here in Norway, the feminists want it to be a part of school, and apparently, it's been proven to reduce the chance of being raped trough more confidence, making you a less likely target, and giving them a better chance to fight back.

i reckon feminism needs a replacement movement that does not have femi in the name, would clear up a whole lot of confusion on where equalism stands.

because feminism literally means the equal roles in society for both genders
you dont go to a christian "look mate, 80% of christians are fucking crazy, maybe you should take up *another religion*"
#286 - anon (11/18/2014) [-]
feminism implies focusing on females, not on equality. It does not "literally" mean equality, nor figuratively. The original movement may have pushed for that, and a lot of feminists still do, but that is NOT what the word means, and you do NOT have the linguistic training to determine such, apparently.

The only actual problem with the name is that ignorant people got to understand the name wrong. Both the psycho girls and the regular people (specially here in the internet, you pricks) understood it as a mysandrist movemement, so both parties played a part in taking away the original message inside Feminism (all that when learning about Feminism is just a google search away). Sadly, because of this, it seems to be that, at least in mass culture, the word just lost its original meaning, because of ignorance.

As a matter of facts, is called like that because is a movement started from women, wich is quite understandable when you know they haven been the sex that has gotten most noticeably oppressed through history (let's not ignore that fact please, a lot of people in this site love to do that). But they have come to the conclussion that, since feminism seeks gender equality, it must necessarily include men's liberation because men are also harmed by sexism and gender roles. So, in present days, the objective is mainly to deconstruct sex and gender prejudice for both men and women, and that's rad.

if you seriously believe that the gaming community does not have many people who either discriminate against girl gamers or idolize them sexually then you are mistakes. far from every person is this way but it is significant. girls do often face discrimination from some parts of the gamer community and it is a problem. It's is essentially impossible for me to prove as I do not have the time, resources, or motivation to do an actual study but we are FAR from perfect.
#379 - anon (11/19/2014) [-]
I am a female that plays video games and I have never encountered discrimination because of my gender. The only interactions I've ever had with male gamers in online multi-players are them being excited/interested that there is a female playing a game that they like. It's a breath of fresh air for them since it's usually a sausage fest.

I think dyalibya is right. I think alot of what is labeled as discrimination, is in truth just toxicity. Everyone gets treated like shit at one point or another when gaming. Discrimination is treating someone worse based on a prejudice, and generally people will find some way to single you out and attack that as a weakness. It just so happens that being female is an easy thing to target. They aren't being treated any worse, just being attacked from a different angle.

Either way, a recent study showed that men are harassed more often on the internet than women. And that is outside of the type of competitive space that is gaming. We have a new type of space. One that is competitive, and present men and women in the same space on initially equal footing. Something that doesn't happen in any sport until now. That sense of competition is going to breed toxicity, especially among those brimming with testosterone. Something that women have traditionally not faced.

I disagree, I believe that there is little to no discrimination against women in gaming, I have been gaming since I was 7 and online since 96, browsing gaming forums, In all that time I have never came across any discrimination, women are popular and welcomed because men are attracted to a woman who shares their interests, same way women who like sports are desirable, you choose to use "idolize them sexually" while often times there is nothing sexual about it, I just like to hear the input of the opposite sex on games and there is nothing better than a game of Tekken against a competitive woman, the idea that the gaming community keeps women out is laughable and 99% of gamers will tell you the same thing you are the 1% assuming that you are a gamer, otherwise you shouldn't be arguing at all Finally you claim that there is discrimination in games, I don't demand a study, show me 2 accounts of discrimination against women, here is the account of a woman

i actually agree. i think feminism is still needed. Even if there are other issues, one human can only wrap their heads around so man thing. YOu can't know everything abot every issue. But in the same way, groups for immigrants, men and all other groups are needed. Someone has to adress problems.
The problem with the modern tumblr feminists is that they do not see their problems in any perspective. they see "this is bothering me, and i am a woman. Therefore it bothers all women".

It wasn't really a "game" per se, it was more like that old poke the rabbit thing on sites like AddictingGames.

Sexism is a problem in gaming. Thing is, gamergate is not about sexism. Complaining about sexism to gamergate is like complaining about sexism to Greenpeace. Sure, both will admit it's a problem, but neither group has a goal related to it.

Gamergate is about ending the currently horrible corruption that plagues that game journalism industry. Anyone saying otherwise is either looking for attention, money from your pocket, or is just trolling.

Oh, and Anita didn't cancel the school thing because of bomb threats. She canceled because the campus police refused to check every student attending her event for guns.

And in response to the videos (which I haven't watched, as I make it a point to ignore anything the people screaming misogyny say), I can only offer one rebuttal- trolls exist on the internet.

What game are you referencing? I haven't heard of one where the point is to beat her up.

I can't exactly blame her for wanting more security given the threats she's received, and there being, you know, a bomb threat.
Also, her videos aren't talking about internet trolls - they're about media representation and video games themselves.
As for the "beat up Anita Sarkeesian" game: referenced here www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/08/29/gaming-vlogger-anita-sarkeesian-is-forced-from-home-after-receiving-harrowing-death-threats/

Yeah its a fancap. In the actual scene, if I remember right, Sam (long hair, also happens to have been in law school for a time) is providing an excellent argument as to why he runs, and Dean (short hair, drinks like someone out of mad men) gives that face for a couple seconds, then refills his glass and keeps drinking.
