    I read Kataku daily and there is always some moron that puts up an editorial that is fucking retarded this is one of them.

    I also check kotaku pretty regularly. I saw this earlier today but didn't bother reading past the preview paragraph since I knew it was just one of those articles that I wouldn't agree with. It's just a 'who gives a fuck' topic and the tone of the article itself seemed very pro-feminism rah rah I'm a woman look what I can do oriented. Not something I want to read.

    I guess it's applicable, and I assume the same for 99% of people, but the "_____ Year old killed" Articles in Current Events.
    If for some reason I decide to click on one and read, it enrages me, but more depresses me.

    Like the 3 year old who was beaten to death essentially for not eating a hot-dog, the rest of the day I'll be in a "Who cares... the world fucking sucks" funk.

    Gawker is loaded with enraging crap.
    I'm sure Jezebel is as well.

    Stories like that are literally the reason that I stopped believing in God.

    About this article - I sorta get what she says, but she has the reason all wrong. There are two reasons a video game journalist would be toted as a female video game journalist:

    1. Most people are still trapped in the hack, outdated perception that girls do not like video games, so they think it's cool that a woman writes about them.

    2. Overselling her. Look at this quote:

    Now, is she one of the most prominent gaming journalists period? I don't know, but probably not, otherwise that's what they would have written. However, she might be one of the most prominent FEMALE gaming journalists. Is Yao Ming one of the greatest NBA players ever? Nope. Is he one of the greatest Chinese NBA players ever? Yup. John Flaherty is NOT in the MLB hall of fame, but he's in the IRISH-AMERICAN hall of fame. Catch my drift? By narrowing the field, they are able to oversell her importance.


    So, much like black people who hate when people say to them: "How about you give us the black perspective" I can see her annoyance, but she does a piss poor job of diagnosing the reasons for why that happens, and just resorts to dumb feminist cliches, which is why she is also described as a "feminist writer." Hey dummy, you can't write a feminist article complaining about people calling you a feminist writer. You just proved them right.

    On an entertainment site, I saw an article postulating that the upcoming movie of The Lorax had the best voice cast ever because it had Taylor Swift, Zack Efron, Danny DeVito, Betty White, and Ed Helms. As much as I love Frank Reynolds, I'm sorry. This year alone, Rango, Rio, Kung Fu Panda 2, and Cars 2 all had better casts.

    Psychopath is my favorite poster because he's either an only child, has a touch of Aspergers or autism, or a combination of all three.

    God. I fucking hate all the "yeah, I'm a girl...so what?" shit. So what, indeed. Nobody said anything about it until you brought it up. Kindly take your weird attention whoring and overinflated sense of entitlement and fuck off.

    I challenge the dumb bitch who wrote this to a fight. I'll show her why she's physically inferior and the coaches wanted me to play instead of her.

    One of us was meant to hunt, the other was meant to cook, so long story short, Darwin wants your ass back in the kitchen, bitch.

    I went to college with this Hispanic chick who was smoking hot, pretty intelligent, but a hardcore feminist and extremely liberal. She would seriously argue with anyone over anything just to hear herself talk and was constantly trying to be the person that argued about everything in a classroom debate. The only reason I actually got to know her was because she was dating my best friend and was CONSTANTLY around. I think I was the first person to ever call her a cunt to her face when she started getting uppity about shit she knew nothing about and called me a fascist for liking guns.

    That's because fucking idiot liberals don't realize that socialism (which they love), fascism, and Nazism are all essentially the same thing. They think Nazism/fascism are "conservative", hence they called Bush a fascist.

    I was one of the few kids at my school who had a car freshman year and I was also one of the only smokers who had a car. So whenever I went to buy smokes people would hitch a ride. She was one of them and just to piss her off I would make her sit in the back "like a lady should." She couldn't bitch because I would have made her walk.

    My wife's got this batty friend (who thank god is hot as fuck or I would have killed her by now) who told me the problem with the BP oil spill was we all needed to pray more. Understand, she said this to me and another oil guy who're having a very in-depth conversation about what went wrong, how to go about fixing it, etc. We go back and forth with her about it for a few minutes basically out of sheer fascination, saying things like "When a light turns red, do you push the pedal on the left or do you just hope god stops the car?" It was fun.

    Fast forward a few months and we all take a trip down to float the river together, and her and their other friend corner my wife and have a sort of intervention about me being an Athiest. My wife laughed, and sort of went, "You two aren't? All the cool kids are doing it!" and they sort of stared at her in shock as she laughed and walked away.

    Chick A smokes a metric fuck-ton of weed every day, was too stupid to do the job she got promoted to in my wife's company so she went to one of their shitty competitors where they put her in charge of the department and she's leaving them open to billions of dollars in risk (can't wait to watch that cookie crumble), and she's convinced she's going to run for President one day. I'm not joking. Chick B's actually cool as fuck and married to my Ranger buddy in Afghanistan right now, she's just kind of old-fashioned.

    Any way, felt like a good time for a bitches be dumb story.

    I honestly don't even have an issue with women being proud of being a woman. What I have an issue with is when women try and make all of their problems the result of men holding them down. The girl I was speaking about in my previous posts called another one of my friends a "Chauvinist Pig" when he made a joke about women belonging in the kitchen. Obviously, he was joking and was just trying to get a rise out of her. But I can't stand how it's sort of looked down upon for a male to be proud of being a male while it's okay for a woman to be proud of being a woman. It's sort of like how they will have Black Pride and Hispanic Pride parades in certain cities but you bet your ass they would never have a white pride parade because that is automatically connotative of being a racist rather than just being proud of who you are.

    I am an only child. I don't see what that has to do with anything I post.

    He's saying you're very short and anti-social. I would have said that made you a member of Wackbag, but whatevz.

    I am, a bit. When I read articles like this it reminds me of the liberal pc cunts I had to deal with in college. I had to grit my teeth for years.

    To this day it's why my GI Bill goes mostly unused. I couldn't handle dealing with those fuckbag idiot college professors. I had one once tell me there was no such thing as people in China killing daughters because of the one child law, and she was an expert because she'd been to Hong Kong a bunch of times a long time ago. I called her out in front of the class on the fact that she didn't even understand that Hong Kong was under England's control during the times that she went, and it was irresponsible of her as a teacher to spout shit she knew nothing about. I had about 20 of these stories over the course of about a month, and was done with college shortly there-after.

    Yeah. It's just the vibe I get. The same vibe when I look in the mirror or reflect on my own life.
