my birthday is next month as well, and my girlfriend can't get me a blowjob or sex either, because well, it's already something I get..... well actually I kinda dislike blowjobs, but the sex



anyway, if you can afford it, a small trip to somewhere, maybe ask a few of his friends what he really likes, maybe something he can't get for himself, things like that, my girlfriend decided on a trip, but that is beside the point, there are plenty of things to get somebody other than sex

Feminism needs a new label and actual focus on male issues as well. Think about it, do most feminist movements actually strive towards fixing male issues as well, or do they only really focus on issues women face?

Feminism is needed in third world countries, but what we need is an organization that strives towards equality between the genders without being ridiculous and whiney.
#312 - Ken M (11/19/2014) [-]
but the real issue is that we have this thing called feminism. We DON'T need it, in fact most people get on fine without it. You have no reason to be a feminist if you're under 50
and not living somewhere in the middle east or asia where there is segregation based on their culture. other than that we should jsut be treating each other as people and guess what we ARE different. There isnt this big issue with rape where all guys believe it's ok or would even think about doing it, but like guys women also have to take care of themselves. Theres nothing in the so called gaming community that is anti woman, nor should anyone be particularly mindful of weather or not a gamer "has tits". She gets ripped on like anyone else and from experience most women that play games don't give a shit and also give it back. Women have been in the industry for a long time and always welcome. (Sierra Online anyone?)
These modern "feminists" and SJW''s (warriors lmao) need to stop lying. We need each other
#283 - Ken M (11/18/2014) [-]
The only issue here is, why wouldn't we tell women to try to dress a little less, for lack of a better word, "slutty?" As terrible as it is, there are ALWAYS people who are going to rape others. 99.9% of society, male and female, knows that rape is wrong, and would never do such a thing, but that 0.1%? If they see a target, they're going for it, and dressing scantily is like painting a bullseye on yourself. No, it's not fair, it's not okay, but no amount of "don't rape" lectures will change that 0.1% of people. Self-defense, and dressing modestly, may be the best bet, as fucked as that is.

User avatar #122 - undeadwill (11/18/2014) [-]
We tell them these things because they work. If the goal is for them to lower the chances of getting raped by someone who really doesn't care if what he is doing is wrong.
In what way? Because gamers do not hate women only posers and political tards.
So online you mean? Like trash talking like men do to other men all the time?

And in what way is modern feminism necessary? Not the women's rights movement which is separate from feminism but the ideological ideas of patriarchy, privilege (that is only ever going to be used one way) and the notion of a rape culture because this is what defines feminism from every other group that believes in equality.

Harassment is not cool, but would ya rather never be harassed because you are ugly? I think not. As for feminism, the problem with it is simple. It tries to be what it isn't, and isn't what it tries to be. It's not about equality. It's about females. It claims for equality, but is inherently gender biased. Truth be told, absolute equality is a great inequality. Modern society doesn't need "feminism" but middle eastern (largely islamic) and other such societies would probably benefit from it. Considering the literal oppression.
User avatar #39 - simmen (11/18/2014) [-]
And not all feminists are against self defense classes either. Here in Norway, the feminists want it to be a part of school, and apparently, it's been proven to reduce the chance of being raped trough more confidence, making you a less likely target, and giving them a better chance to fight back.

because feminism literally means the equal roles in society for both genders

#286 - Ken M (11/18/2014) [-]
feminism implies focusing on females, not on equality. It does not "literally" mean equality, nor figuratively. The original movement may have pushed for that, and a lot of feminists still do, but that is NOT what the word means, and you do NOT have the linguistic training to determine such, apparently.
User avatar #319 - anametoremember (11/19/2014) [-]
The only actual problem with the name is that ignorant people got to understand the name wrong. Both the psycho girls and the regular people (specially here in the internet, you pricks) understood it as a mysandrist movemement, so both parties played a part in taking away the original message inside Feminism (all that when learning about Feminism is just a google search away). Sadly, because of this, it seems to be that, at least in mass culture, the word just lost its original meaning, because of ignorance.

As a matter of facts, is called like that because is a movement started from women, wich is quite understandable when you know they haven been the sex that has gotten most noticeably oppressed through history (let's not ignore that fact please, a lot of people in this site love to do that). But they have come to the conclussion that, since feminism seeks gender equality, it must necessarily include men's liberation because men are also harmed by sexism and gender roles. So, in present days, the objective is mainly to deconstruct sex and gender prejudice for both men and women, and that's rad.

User avatar #36 - yunoavailable (11/18/2014) [-]
if you seriously believe that the gaming community does not have many people who either discriminate against girl gamers or idolize them sexually then you are mistakes. far from every person is this way but it is significant. girls do often face discrimination from some parts of the gamer community and it is a problem. It's is essentially impossible for me to prove as I do not have the time, resources, or motivation to do an actual study but we are FAR from perfect.
#379 - Ken M (11/19/2014) [-]
I am a female that plays video games and I have never encountered discrimination because of my gender. The only interactions I've ever had with male gamers in online multi-players are them being excited/interested that there is a female playing a game that they like. It's a breath of fresh air for them since it's usually a sausage fest.
User avatar #274 - citruslord (11/18/2014) [-]
I think dyalibya is right. I think alot of what is labeled as discrimination, is in truth just toxicity. Everyone gets treated like shit at one point or another when gaming. Discrimination is treating someone worse based on a prejudice, and generally people will find some way to single you out and attack that as a weakness. It just so happens that being female is an easy thing to target. They aren't being treated any worse, just being attacked from a different angle.

Either way, a recent study showed that men are harassed more often on the internet than women. And that is outside of the type of competitive space that is gaming. We have a new type of space. One that is competitive, and present men and women in the same space on initially equal footing. Something that doesn't happen in any sport until now. That sense of competition is going to breed toxicity, especially among those brimming with testosterone. Something that women have traditionally not faced.
#45 - dyalibya (11/18/2014) [-]
I disagree, I believe that there is little to no discrimination against women in gaming, I have been gaming since I was 7 and online since 96, browsing gaming forums, In all that time I have never came across any discrimination, women are popular and welcomed because men are attracted to a woman who shares their interests, same way women who like sports are desirable, you choose to use "idolize them sexually" while often times there is nothing sexual about it, I just like to hear the input of the opposite sex on games and there is nothing better than a game of Tekken against a competitive woman, the idea that the gaming community keeps women out is laughable and 99% of gamers will tell you the same thing you are the 1% assuming that you are a gamer, otherwise you shouldn't be arguing at all Finally you claim that there is discrimination in games, I don't demand a study, show me 2 accounts of discrimination against women, here is the account of a woman

i actually agree. i think feminism is still needed. Even if there are other issues, one human can only wrap their heads around so man thing. YOu can't know everything abot every issue. But in the same way, groups for immigrants, men and all other groups are needed. Someone has to adress problems.
The problem with the modern tumblr feminists is that they do not see their problems in any perspective. they see "this is bothering me, and i am a woman. Therefore it bothers all women".

Sexism is a problem in gaming. Thing is, gamergate is not about sexism. Complaining about sexism to gamergate is like complaining about sexism to Greenpeace. Sure, both will admit it's a problem, but neither group has a goal related to it.

Gamergate is about ending the currently horrible corruption that plagues that game journalism industry. Anyone saying otherwise is either looking for attention, money from your pocket, or is just trolling.

Oh, and Anita didn't cancel the school thing because of bomb threats. She canceled because the campus police refused to check every student attending her event for guns.

And in response to the videos (which I haven't watched, as I make it a point to ignore anything the people screaming misogyny say), I can only offer one rebuttal- trolls exist on the internet.

What game are you referencing? I haven't heard of one where the point is to beat her up.
User avatar #153 - twistedwoodthing (11/19/2014) [-]
I can't exactly blame her for wanting more security given the threats she's received, and there being, you know, a bomb threat.
Also, her videos aren't talking about internet trolls - they're about media representation and video games themselves.
As for the "beat up Anita Sarkeesian" game: referenced here www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/08/29/gaming-vlogger-anita-sarkeesian-is-forced-from-home-after-receiving-harrowing-death-threats/

No, it is not protected by the first amendment. In fact, there is even a case that pretty much added a "fighting words" clause. In which if you say things that are purposefully inflammatory, you are legally allowed to smack the shit out of that person, since that speech isn't protected.

Also, saying things that present a danger to other people is legally disallowed.

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.

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.

Were you a lurker or did you have another account?
User avatar #4 to #3 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
My other account is Stallwallwriter, I just started this one to comment on a user's post after he blocked me (he made some ghastly pseudo-science post about how transsexuality and homosexuality were mental illnesses). I was originally just trying to level this one up enough to post pictures but I just kept using it.
User avatar #5 to #4 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
... I can't believe there's people that still go around spreading stuff like that.
Anyways, pleased to meet you... Twisted? That sounds like an awful thing to call someone! What may I call you?
User avatar #6 to #5 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?
User avatar #8 to #6 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #12 to #11 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
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?
User avatar #15 to #13 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
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?
User avatar #17 to #15 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #20 to #19 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
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?
User avatar #21 to #20 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #31 to #21 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #33 to #32 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
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.
User avatar #14 to #13 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
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.
