I'll be taking a break from the site, at least until it finds a new punching bag than feminism. I want to keep fighting the good fight, but I'm tired. To paraphrase Theoden, what can one do against such reckless hate? I came here to be entertained, not to have to defend women's rights and basic common sense on every third post. This isn't quitting in a huff, it's that can't keep commenting, but I can't in good conscience be on the site and say nothing. Goodbye admin, goodbye all, for the moment.

the subculture is hostile towards people pointing out their gender.If you just play the videogame like anyone else noone will ever know (except for stuff that got automatic voice connection) and noone will ever treat you differently.
#171 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/22/2014) [-]
so as long as we stay invisible it's ok? and it doesn't even matter what we say/don;t say. I don't go around saying "hey I'm a girl gamer look at me" yet I still get dick pics and shit-talk, not just normal trash-talk like "you suck at games", I mean rape threats and how I'm an inferior being because I was born with a pussy instead of a dick. I'm just trying to communicate with my team, sometimes I don't even have to be talking, I changed my avatar to be more "masculine" (it was a black cat), but you guys can still tell by gamertag/online ID and I'm not willing to change that because I have the same name for all my gaming devices and you can't change it on PSN without starting your trophies over.
#172 - ripgeckosncherios (05/22/2014) [-]
I don't know what game you are playing and I may not be the most qualified in this matter, since I do not play a large variety of games, but I never experienced this ever. Your gamertag would have to be something close to FemaleGamer1992 for people to straight away decide you are female based on your name.
I also don't see why anyone would go from cat avatar to a girl playing behind that avatar o_O
And it seems that you are mostly talking about voicechat games, and as I said, sadly I dont have any experience with those. In other games, mostly LoL, I don't believe that this type of abuse exists.
I mean sure, what does happen is taht you thought someone was funny and added them after the game, maybe using a voice connection after a couple of games, but by then most people would actually know you and I doubt they would react negatively.

I guess my experience pool is at the end jsut to limited to really contribute to this
#179 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/23/2014) [-]
1) My ID involves my name so yes they can tell I'm a girl without it being "grill gamer"-like.
2) I don't see a lot of guys with cat avatars, it's pretty safe to assume that someone with a cat as their avatar is going to be a girl.
3) So because you have never experienced it, that means it doesn't exist? Especially after admitting that you don't play much other than LoL. Have you not seen women posting online the kinds of messages they receive when playing on Xbox LIVE?
4) I'm not even sure what you were getting at in the second to last sentence, but I don't add people AND THEN they say horrible things. It's usually when I'm waiting in the lobby of a multiplayer match, you know with people who AREN'T on my friends list.
#184 - ripgeckosncherios (05/23/2014) [-]
1) Okay fair enough, I understand how that would be a problem, on a side note, why? I dont know anyone that has their name in their ID. But if you dont want to change it taht is understandable
2) Personally I think cats are pretty genderneutral, not that this matters really
3) Yeah as I said, I never noticed anything happen like this in any games I played. But as I said my experience is probably to limited, and no, I have never seen messages of xbox live posted online. Speaking off xbox live: voicechat. The main reason why I think this problem exists if it does, which is something you have convinced me of by now
4) Well here we are again at voicechat, I guess the games you play have voicechat in the lobby. My point was: If there isnt voicechat in the game you are playing, then i dont think people wil react negatively, and you could THEN use personalised voicechat, whcih I do commonly with people I know. If the voicechat is public however I understand how it could be a problem.
#102 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/22/2014) [-]
Thank you twistedwoodthing for speaking up. I don't really care about female characters clothes or how many female leads are in video games, but I do care about the amount of hostility and verbal abuse us female gamers get. People say we should just accept it, but that's like if you guys wanted to learn to play guitar and whenever you went to guitar class or starting strumming in the park, a bunch of females would come up to you and say "you can't play guitar!", "you're just playing because you want our attention", "do you even know who invented the guitar?".and ya at first you just brush it off, but if it happened 80% of the time you picked up the guitar, year after year, don't you think it would start to wear you down and that maybe, just maybe, you'd want it to change?
#52 - beerholder (05/22/2014) [-]
how is playing videogames a subculture, and by any means, how can it be hostile?
User avatar #35 - drldrl (05/22/2014) [-]
Getting into a subculture involves accepting the subculture.
Yet they're trying to change all this shit. Everything is sexist to them. Not the insanely ripped dudes. But the chicks with nice tits. They want their eye candy, but won't let guys have their's.
User avatar #17 - getballar (05/22/2014) [-]
Why should anyone be treated different because of his/her pastime? It's not like it matters that much for anyone else than him/her.
User avatar #12 - huszti (05/22/2014) [-]
forgot to add:
why, exactly, should we give anyone credit for enjoying videogames just because that person is female?
User avatar #11 - huszti (05/22/2014) [-]
nobody really gives a fuck whether someone's female or not. just when someone cries "imma female and play vidya" it's just annoying.
#13 - seymion (05/22/2014) [-]
You can get free stuff on MMO's by pretending to be, or by being, female. Girls who write reviews or complaints get either ignored or downright hated upon just because the writer is female and therefore trying to ruin video games for everyone else.

So yea people seem to give a shit, at least the loudest of the howler monkeys do.
Girls who the the "imma girl" thing are annoying though I'll give you that
User avatar #8 - woozuh (05/22/2014) [-]
consider most of them are just play for attention
#6 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/22/2014) [-]
So you didn't look at the picture carefully enough? It shows, and I can confirm it having grown up in the 90s, that anyone who played video games up untill maybe10 years ago were considered nerds of the highest caliber. So it's more like the 'nerd culture' is giving back what was handed to them for so many years.
#106 - jarelk (05/22/2014) [-]
That is incredibly stupid and close-minded reasoning. "Hurr durr I got rejected by girls as a kid for playing videogames, now I can get my revenge against other girls"?

Honestly sounds to me like beta reasoning. How about just let everyone enjoy whatever the fuck they want to enjoy without labeling them?
#165 - wagastragas (05/22/2014) [-]
i dont mind girls playing games, but the ones that are all omg look at me im such a nerd are the ones who would discriminate you if it wasnt cause games are a thing now
User avatar #166 - jarelk (05/22/2014) [-]
Then don't pay attention to one once you recognize them. And, this post is basically stereotyping every girl who plays games.
#30 - buriedstpatrick (05/22/2014) [-]
Just as feminazis are giving back now.
This sort of mentality is what starts wars, you know.

It shouldn't be girls that are interested in a subculture's fault that the previous generation was hostile towards that culture. Fucking imbrace it like a man. Or maybe you deserve being treated like shit, when you treat them like shit.
#7 - dephira (05/22/2014) [-]
i don't know dude. my older brother started going to middle school in 1998, and literally everyone and their momma in his class were playing video games. i don't think it was really a fringe activity or anything
#14 - seymion (05/22/2014) [-]
It changes from person to person and place to place I think, I've gone to several different schools in different countries and the opinion ranges from downright nerd bashing to being the norm.

User avatar #49 - twistedwoodthing (05/23/2014) [-]
I didn't call you a troll for disagreeing with me about a band, you literally said women are good for nothing but cooking and sex. That can only mean one thing:
1) it was a very bad attempt at sarcasm
2) you're trying to get a rise out of people
3) you're so stupid that you actually believe that.
Frankly, calling you a troll is a compliment because it means I just think you're being obnoxious for fun, rather than being enough of an idiot to believe what you say.

To my understanding, i personally never encountered one in any my campaigns before, when a person becomes a Lich, they become uber powerful and can summon an army of undead, unless of course they are killed and/or dealt with before completing the ritual to become one

Seeing as the party COMPLETELY ignored this task, in favor of doing something more trivial, the person was successful in becoming a Lich and was able to summon his army of undead, and armies of undead usually go around killing every living thing, thus why the town was, well, killed by an army of undead

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.

That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.

No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.

I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.
I also think I'm gonna read those books as soon as I'm finished with the one I'm reading now.
User avatar #10 to #8 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.

Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.

You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.
So I take it you play videogames?

If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

So you like games, reviews of games, reading and silly pictures in funnyjunk. What else do you like?
User avatar #18 to #17 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Science Fiction and Horror, (both reading it, writing it, and watching movies), the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, webcomics and baking. I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?
User avatar #19 to #18 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.

I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?

When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ecstasy is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?
User avatar #32 to #31 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.
User avatar #34 to #33 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".
User avatar #16 to #15 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super hardcore gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
