Something is bothering me about this industry. It may not be quite what you expect going into this blog post, so please bear with me and if you disagree, especially if you disagree, please conside…
For the love of everything people, spread this article like a wildfire. And trust me when I say it, continue reading no matter what. Whole article is worth of reading.
You’ll definitely be surprised.
Don’t let the title mislead you,by the way
I agree that a good solution for some problems in the gaming industry would be to inspire young females to take interest in making video games. That’d be pretty fuckin’ awesome! And of course Anita isn’t going to do that, she’s probably stuck where she is.
But I don’t see the people in the gaming industry doing anything for this, either. This whole article comes across to me as “It’s not us, it’s YOU!”
I will openly admit that there is a LOT wrong with how SJWs handle feminism. In that their brand of feminism is not feminism at all, but a reversal of the roles, essentially. I know that’s there, and it’s horrible! I do not hold that such ideas would solve anything, and I try to tell them that it won’t. (the few times I come across them)
I’m not as deep into the SJW gaming thing as most, but regardless of how populous the SJWs are, the fact remains that there’s still the problem of women representation in gaming. And to some it seems sexist. I kinda think it’s sexist, considering some guys claiming “women just don’t get games.” but again, the solution to that is to get more women into the industry! Get some people out to schools, to colleges and universities, talk to the young and spark their interest in the ability to someday create their world with adventure, intrigue, superpowers and whatever else they might imagine!
That sort of solution isn’t an immediate one, though. Even if we were to act on this right away, got hundreds of speakers out in the world right this instant, the problem would still remain for at least a year or so.
So people are still going to get angry about it, because while you say that the games industry is not inherently sexist, a lot of the rest of the world is. So people get angry because gaming is yet ANOTHER faction of life where they can’t find good representation of themselves, whatever the fault.
What many SJWs are doing is horrible, and I do not excuse it at all. I condemn it, and hope the people who are subject to their rage are not too affected, because as the article states, that is a very real problem. I cannot apologize enough for how I contributed to that.
There is a problem with how women are represented in games, whether it be because of sexism, lack of women, or aliens manipulating events to create a comedy of errors. Painting all men as the victims just comes across as hypocritical yourself.
I was a pubescent teen, I could’ve been called an SJW. I’m forever sorry for the damage I may have caused, and acknowledge that while there are many other aspects that play into this, I am still at fault.
Can we get some more people on both sides of this saying the same?
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I have a love for her that runs deep.

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.
The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.
THIS IS TERRIFYING AND HORRIBLE
to navajos cutting your hair is losing your knowledge..this is some boarding school shit
Have you heard? Dreamworks Animation and Studio Mir, the company behind Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, announced Thursday they will work together to produce up to four new animated television series in the next four years.
This is huge both because a Korean company has never partnered on such a large scale with an American animation group, and because these shows will be created in 2D animation. I’m ecstatic!
It’s great to see that Korean animation is being taken seriously enough to be treated as a creative equal rather than just as a source of cheap production. Studio Mir’s work is undeniably beautiful, and if Mir’s talent can be combined with the storytelling prowess exhibited in How to Train Your Dragon 2, I will be a very happy customer.
An article inthe Korea Herald had the following to say:
“The contract with DreamWorks is meaningful since we will be working as partners,” Studio Mir founder and executive producer Yoo Jae-myung said.
“This has never been done before by a Korean studio.”
A Studio Mir spokesman said details regarding the titles of the cartoons could not be revealed, but that they would be in 2-D.
This is great news for both companies, since each has had some fairly concerning press in the past few weeks, between the financial troubles of Dreamworks Animation (now under direction of new chief financial officer Fazal Merchant) and the on-again/off-again nature of Korra Book Three, now safely on Nick.com.
Speaking of The Legend of Korra, Studio Mir uploaded a lovely picture on Facebook yesterday thanking fans for their support of Book Three.
