Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

If "mansplaining" is a real problem, so is a hypothetical equivalent, "womansplaining." Yeah, and white lives matter, too! Totally different. See gnash's latest post. Drawing a false equivalence between the ingrained cultural dismissal of women's power, perceptions, and prerogatives and that time a...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

If you really think it's not a thing that men launch into explanations just assuming they know more about the topic at hand than the woman they're talking to, just because they're men, I don't think you're paying attention. Think about the possibility of a "correlation is causation" fallacy here. T...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

You use the phrase "more often than not" without any evidence, and I think you're wrong about that. If you really think it's not a thing that men launch into explanations just assuming they know more about the topic at hand than the woman they're talking to, just because they're men, I don't think ...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

I hoping this stays lighthearted enough — I don't want to be blamed for starting a flame war. Is it just me, or is accusing someone of "mansplaining" just a really simpleminded ad hominem attack that is somehow recognized as a legitimate attack? Without the last 8 words, yes. I don't want to start ...

Re: Zach Horan (legendneverdies) Banned

Beautiful women don't want to be objectified. Plus size women consider being objectified a breakthrough for them (Ok, maybe just the marketing people do that). "Everyone should be celebrated objectified." https://screen.yahoo.com/style/plus-size-models-proudly-wear-173408336.html You're literally t...

Re: Alietr, with regards to the locked thread

That thread was awful. Thanks for deleting it; I wasn't going to continue to post there anyway after my final comment because I felt like my points had been made for me, both on behalf of the multiple parties which agreed with me, and the behavior of some of the parties that didn't. I joined this fo...

Re: Chu Chu Train = Salon Aboard!

I would normally respond to such psychotic, profanity-laden drivel in detail, where I could refute pretty much everything Arthur just said, but I'll refrain for the sake of my happiness, and the fact that I have much better things to do than argue with a hostile, self-proclaimed "genius" troll on an...

I haven't bothered to read the entirety of this thread because I don't think it's necessary — personally, I think I can reasonably draw opinions on his character for myself. Aside from trumpeting #JeNeSuisPasCharlie around and beating to his own classless drum about how Charlie Hebdo was a horrible...

Re: Chu Chu Train = Salon Aboard!

What you call trolling, others might call invasion of privacy, horribly violent threats, and encouragement for others to make more violent threats and invade privacy. People have had their lives hacked, their social media accounts hacked, addresses and other personal information published, along wi...

Re: Chu Chu Train = Salon Aboard!

There has been a lot of trolling, but there has yet to be a single death or violent occurrence as a direct result of GamerGate. If you can prove me wrong, please post a link!

By the way, Jonathan McIntosh is another one of those obnoxious anti-GG'ers.

Re: Chu Chu Train = Salon Aboard!

I feel like we've all strayed from the topic of conversation, which is Arthur Chu's new writing career. Here are two links to his writings at The Daily Beast and Salon, both of which have been generally negatively received. Praytell, how did you ever come to that conclusion? Is 30-40 articles over ...

Re: Chu Chu Train = Salon Aboard!

I don't understand how anyone can claim that people who make death and rape threats are supportable Short answer is the threats don't come from anyone active in GamerGate, and they come mainly from third party trolls. Nobody active in GamerGate supports death and rape threats. There is a longer ans...
