The only thing dumb here is the retarded delusional use of "identify". As a man of science I believe your so called "gender" as per this argument, should be called what it actually is. Confusion, delusion, and a mental disorder. You are what you are. It doesn't matter what you think you are. It doesn't matter what you identify as.
A cup of orange juice is a cup of orange juice, no matter how much it wants to be it will never be a cup of tomato juice. This entire issue is so fucking retarded. Gender shouldn't even be used at all then if it's that fucking stupid.
#360 - bobbysnobby (12/03/2014) [-]
This just shows that you haven't through about the nuances.
For example lets say your born as a boy. But you have the biochemistry of a girl. What are you? This has nothing to do with identity or how we "feel". They have a penis but none of the hormones or hormonal production of a male. They can even have biochemical clocks like they are going through period cycles. If we conclude that all that is important is that they were born with a penis, ok lets carry that to its logical place.
What if your born with both male and female reproductive organs. Now do we consider biochemistry? Do we say they are sexless? Do we say they are both?
The concept of Identity is an important one for study because it impacts peoples choices and the structure of their values which are important when looking at people and group decision making. For example there are cultures were gender roles are reversed. Males wear makeup and go to great lengths for physical beauty and women do not. And many other examples we dont need to go into.
Gender is a short hand for societies expectations for a sex and for the individuals sense of place in a community. The reason it comes up is there are many people who dont really belong to either sex and that creates massive problem in gender identity.
The way SJWs abuse the notion of "The typical is wrong we embrace the Atypical no matter how infrequent, and you being insensitive about .00001% of the population makes you a monster XYZ" Obviously its an abuse of this fact, but its not because the science is wrong. Its the application of a judgement, a set of values on the science.
They are wrong a lot of the time, and the way they try to make themselves heard makes us all flinch and want to make them shut their fucking stupid mouths. But arguing over the use of the Terms Sex and Gender when they have codified definitions in the scientific literature is just as pointless.
#367 - infinitereaper (12/03/2014) [-]
2) You are both, though usually it leans one way or the other. At this point a person can be either or. They have that right.
3)Identity is an issue of psychology, not an issue of sociology. Making it one is when this becomes nonsense.
4) There are scientific differences and reasons males and females have different expectations. Example; estrogen and behavior, testosterone and behavior, women have thinner skin so are more sensitive to touch and violence because of concentrated nerve endings, females are generally physically weaker but have a higher tolerance for pain. Different centers of gravity, etc. All of these play a role from a sociological perspective.
Listen I'm all about the science. I think the problem is that you aren't as about it as you think you are. I don't care for nuances or making people feel good or justifying anything. There are answers to everything, and while people may not like them that doesn't mean they can corrupt perception just to make themselves feel better. It's a fallacy. Sex isn't a construct,
the only construct here is this idea of gender identity, an as I've stated time and time again; it's illogical
#368 - bobbysnobby (12/03/2014) [-]
I dont think your grasping the point. There is no argument ...well maybe a little, but by in large no argument about definitions of sex.
Ill say it one time as clearly as I can. To scientists who study people Identity matters. That is the reason studies often look at Race and Ethnicity. They are not the same. Sex and gender when your talking to mom and dad or your friends is not important. To scientists the distinction is important.
For example if you have like my siblings Native American Heritage through their father they are more prone to diabetes than I am. That's a health concern related to Race. Ethnically Mexican families in New Mexico are prone to obesity and heart related heath problems due to dietary practices. This is a problem from Ethnic dietary practices not from differential race genetics.
"Identity is an issue of psychology, not an issue of sociology" This is a very strange claim im not sure how its an "Issue" and anthropologists dont speak about it as an issue. Society creates roles for genders they are not some absolute, we know this because different cultures have different gender roles than we do.
The easy way to explain it is this.
You are a boy, you are a girl, you are both, you are neither. These are Sex categories.
This is masculine, this is feminine, this is neither, this is both. Those are Gender Categories.
An example of it in practice. Women on the average, across the world do more housework then men. This is a characteristic of gender, not of sex.
#370 - infinitereaper (12/03/2014) [-]
Your sex and gender categories make sense, however the gender categories are still a little contrived, I've mentioned the science behind behavior, and how that's tied to psychology. What gets me however is the fact that few seem to acknowledge the scientific, hell the biological reasons men and women have certain expectations. Like men (hunters) and women (caregivers) but if you look at it from the perspective of evolutionary biology it all makes much more sense. Like I said, my gripe with the concept of gender is that it's plastic and much less of an actual science than it is about human behavior. For sake of clarity I simply state things how they are.
This whole issue of identity is what I find so unscientific. This idea of Ethnicity instead of simple of cultural heritage is what I find preposterous. While I understand where this comes from, I have my own criticism, perhaps my viewpoints stem from that.
Perhaps what bothers me most is that there is no middle ground, like normative and nominative economics, I believe that there is a middle ground that takes the best of both into a superior science. I probably feel the same way about gender and sex.
Meaning I can only agree with you half the time, and the other half have problems with those statements and ideas. I find the science far superior however, and I believe lots of people misuse the concept of "gender", or forget entirely that gender is the concept, not sex. I don't believe gender is a social construct, I believe it's a psychological construct that people try to make a social one, one that may or may not have basis in reality depending on person(s).
Which is why I call it a word game. Get lost in the definitions and the "sciences" to much and you won't truly understand humanity. Truth is derived from breaking free from human illusions and acknowledging them for what they are.
Much in the same way you are trying to explain, technically correct and correct aren't the same things either

#136 - bobbysnobby (11/28/2014) [-]
It reads like you think this is new. This argument has literally come up every single time for the past 70 years.
Let me rub my fuzzy pink fedora as I get more condescending.
MMM im neverposting and in my first highschool history lesson we talked about this brand new topic called the Holocaust. I have spent a whole 30 mins of my life being lectured on this topic and I feel I have come to some interesting conclusions to how it relates to these modern situations.
I will now make the most placid, boring, monotone statement about this topic that is humanly possible. I would not dare challenge our conventions or try to look at this topic in anything that could be miss interpreted as a new idea.
I will tell you what we will say to future generations. "We much like those who came before us deal with the problems we are faced with. Rather than trying to make the world a better place for everyone would rather make it better for us. Why is it that you are judging us for our practices as currently there is _____ genocide currently going on that you are doing nothing about." Previous generations would say that to us and we have no good answer, so its reasonable to assume in the future it will be exactly the same.
I'm glad I could answer this very complex question for you.

Well, I´ve got the face of a model on the body of a young god so I don´t have that problem.
Seriously, tho, with that kind of mind, you´d be rich, famous and beautiful in no time - I mean, c´mon.
Escapism would be better, tho, if you could create your own world - or evolution, but the partner here would be a serious problem.

His logic is incredibly faulty and sounds like a PR representative from EA. What he fails to understand is that day 1 DLC is usually parts cut out of the game and sold as DLC to make extra profit or create preorder bonuses. The prothean DLC from Mass Effect 3 was proven to be on-disc DLC and just a greedy cash grab by EA. Day 1 DLC is not fine and only encourages companies like EA to take advantage of people like this.
Also Extra Credits seems to be corrupt. In 2011 they hosted a fundraiser for a co-workers medical bills when they were working for the Escapist. They got a huge amount of money in donations. After they had paid off the bills, they pocketed the extra money for themselves which numbered in the tens of thousands. When the Escapist called them out on it, they left the company and took the money with them.
#169 - rdobet (11/21/2014) [-]
Hence why I said for the most part. Item tie in/cosmetics are fine. On disc DLC/main story elements are not fine. Day 1 DLC in and of itself isn't bad. It's a tool. Just like a gun isn't inherently bad. It's how it's used that matters.
I can't really comment on that since I don't know anything about it. Even still I'm just there for the design/history lesson.
I doubt they're PR for EA since they've openly criticized EA before.
#172 - krystalkitty (11/21/2014) [-]
The problem with his argument is that there needs to be
1. A significant amount of people who return the game after completing it, which is false.
2. The amount of people who buy DLC is so little in the months after the game it's not worth making DLC, which is also false.
3. There should barely be any DLC offered at all outside of the first few months of release of a game, which clearly isn't happening.
He doesn't even address PC users who only got refunds because of the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy. You can't do trade-ins with digital games. Second, the Citadel DLC came out for ME3 around a year after the game was released and it sold pretty well.
Day 1 DLC has and always will be content cut from the game and sold for as much extra money as possible or for preorder bonuses. There is no justification to day 1 DLC except to milk as much money as possible out of customers. It's simple greed that created it. I don't really know Extra Credits too well, but they really need to do more research into their topics.
#176 - rdobet (11/21/2014) [-]
You're being a bit restrictive on what can be done. You're basically just asking them to tell their workers to delay all their work for a few months. (Which will likely be unpaid if that is done.)
I agree with TotalBiscuit on what day one DLC should constitute though(Basically only cosmetics, reskins, other minor texture swaps, etc.). On-Disk DLC is nonsense in every conceivable way though.
Also, just so you don't get the wrong impression of them, since most of their videos really avoid any such nonsense with corporate politics. These are good examples of what their regular episodes are like.
#177 - krystalkitty (11/21/2014) [-]
I'm asking them to tell their workers to do proper research into videos so as to not misinform their viewers. The amount of research it would take to understand day 1 DLC and how DLC sales work would be a week at most.
Day 1 DLC in my opinion should never exist. All the cosmetics, reskins, etc. would've been featured as in-game bonus content to be unlocked 5 years ago. It's pure greed.
I get what they're trying to do, and some of their videos seem informative. But I can't really appreciate what they do after learning about the money grab they did and their stance on Gamergate. I hope they do genuinely care about the gaming industry though.
#178 - rdobet (11/21/2014) [-]
I think they're just is informed on GG. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt, but really, just like celebrity scandals, that has nothing to do with what their regular actions do.
As explained, 5 years ago the content wouldn't even have made it into the game most likely. If it did, it would've been later on where it wouldn't sell as well.
I'm just trying to explain why there is a decent argument for Day 1 DLC as a legitimate tool for developers. I'm not justifying corporate greed at all.
#180 - krystalkitty (11/21/2014) [-]
Gamergate is a movement for getting rid of corruption in the gaming industry and games journalism. The people working at Extra Credits are friends with some of the people who have been heavily anti-GG. EC themselves have no reason to be anti-GG, but it seems like they're afraid to make their friends mad.
5 years ago the content would've already been part of the game on release. It wouldn't have been sold as DLC. It would've just been there for anyone to enjoy.
Day 1 DLC is a tool for developers to milk as much money as possible out of customers with little effort. I don't understand how it could be beneficial.
#181 - rdobet (11/21/2014) [-]
The GG stuff I really don't care what position they take. It matters to me about as much as what they ate for breakfast on Wednesday. I don't blame them if that's the reason anyway. They've tried really hard to stay out of it entirely though.
Since otherwise it's just wasted post development time.
#182 - krystalkitty (11/21/2014) [-]
Well I care. Anyone who has an anti-GG stance I usually want to avoid unless they're misinformed and are willing to have a conversation about it. There is absolutely no reason as to why you should be anti-GG unless you're one of these people who profit from the corruption of the gaming industry. EC needs to understand that by being against GG, they're showing that their company lacks ethics and supports this kind of morally bankrupt behavior we've seen from websites like Kotaku and Polygon.
All of the content made is during development time which should've been focused towards the game itself.
