how do you find out if a fourteen year old smokes weed
just talk to them for like two minutes

Should’ve gone with the cloak of intelligence brah.
I imagine it’d end up a lot like gaming journalism!
Newsflash: Men like to be represented just like women do. It’s harder for me to self-insert as a character if they’re female.
oh no. those poor babies. the lack of male characters in games is just shocking. appalling. I mean, I was playing a game the other day and only 10 of the 12 characters were male. good god, how trying it must be. especially when the other characters were a woman and a three-headed monkey. they must feel so oppressed by those damned three-headed monkeys.
oh no a small group of sexist people who happen to play video games are sexist! All gamers are sexist! Gaming is evil! Let’s destroy gaming. Also, oh no, I haven’t played one of the thousands of games that feature actually decent female representation, there are no games that represent women properly, gaming is sexist!
While I completely agree with feminism and I understand that I am in a position of privilege due to not only my gender, but my race, I do not agree with Anita Sarkeesian and her attack on gaming. The gaming industry is not “repressing” female devs and all the other bullshit that Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian came up with, it embraces them, unless of course you count consoles and console players. Companies and people that develop solely for consoles or prefer consoles over PC are a stain on the gaming industry and are, quite frankly, holding the industry back. On PC anyone can be a developer and there are thousands of games that show that disprove Anita Sarkeesian’s bullshit about women’s representation in games. Yeah, Zoe Quinn was harassed, but not because she’s a female developer, she made a shitty game that she thought was a good example of depression (having problems with depression and anxiety myself, I feel it was a shit game that should not have ever existed). She also slept with professionals who had a hand in not only the popularity of her game, but of herself as well. She managed to expose corruption in the gaming journalism industry, and I commend her for that, however she helped contribute to it so she’s also part of the problem. Yes, the gaming industry needs to change, but not for the reasons Anita Sarkeesian claims.
Bring on your arguments or your Anon hate or whatever, I stand by my points (however chaotic this post may be due to it’s lack of linear structure).
