A couple posts flew across my path about Sexism lately, and I’ve been mulling over some things, and now that it’s gestated a bit, I’m going to spew forth like an angry volcano. The posts in question are Apple Cider’s post, and a post on Herding Cats.
Let’s start with the people who have certain problems with the game, I’m not going to pick on just one group. To if you have a problem with the game, then why do you play it? To me it’s like going to a KKK rally cause you like the food. You tell me this game has issues with something, yet you still fork over your money. How is that going to institute change? How is that going to send a message? So don’t tell me that this game offends you, then your still playing away like nothing is wrong. Now I’m not speaking if you don’t like a mechanic, or a certain dungeon. I’m talking if you have a morale difference with the game, such as you think it’s part of a rape culture, or too violent. I’m kind of morally corrupt, so I really couldn’t give you an example for myself.
Now alot of women I hear get offended by men when they go online. Hey guess what lady, we all take that abuse. Heck a RP’er called me a loser when he found out I lived with my Mom, he didn’t know I moved in because My Mom’s husband had a stroke and she needed help. We as men, we degrade one another. I call my guildies douchebags, of course I mean it in the best possible way. I call my friend Scary a Panda Cock. That’s what men do, though it’s how we are. It’s in our nature, but when you women come into our house, you want to be treated like you’re a lady. That shit ain’t going to happen. You want to be equal, fine we’re going to degrade you, and put you through hell to prove yourself. With men, respect is usually earned, not given. Sometimes I feel you don’t want to earn it. The women, and men who I treat with respect, and honor….they’ve earned it ten times over.
What ever happen to having a thick skin, I use to bounce at a bar, and you think internet losers calling you an asshole is bad…you should try having a girl bash a beer bottle over your head, while calling you a no penis having loser, as you haul her boyfriend away, compared to some of the shit I dealt with, it’s refreshing dealing with internet retards. I put my thoughts, and opinions on this worldwide forum called the internet, and once in awhile there are going to be people that disagree with me, or even hate me for no reason. I don’t care, and I hope they say something stupid, because it proves me all the more right.
I think bottomline, if you believe in something, stand up for what you believe in. If you can’t take the heat of putting yourself out there, then maybe you should get out of the kitchen.
