"So what you're saying is that women can't handle negative feedback"
The Anita Sarkeesian gambit. They targeted a professor for his views, suggested that he should not have free speech that "offends" people, and now they are playing the victim. Absolute scumbags.
Channel 4 News has called in security specialists to analyse threats made to presenter Cathy Newman following her interview with a controversial Canadian psychologist who has attracted a following among the “alt-right”.
This was one of the questions addressed in the 'debate' (because Newman was an advocate and not a journalist). Yet here is a fake news reporter breathlessly repeating it with no basis whatsoever.
Newman has faced a wave of abuse and threats online, including on Twitter. There is no suggestion that Peterson, Delingpole or Murray are behind the threats or instigated them.
This was a positive surprise. Journalists often don't bother to point this out when talking about people they are intent on smearing.
[Newman:] I thoroughly enjoyed my bout with Jordan Peterson as did hundreds of thousands of our viewers. Viva feminism, viva free speech.
They enjoyed seeing you be humiliated. Also, your argument in the debate was that 'offense' trumps free speech. At least, that was one of your leading questions. Now you're pretending to support it? But it's always nice to see dogmatists openly espousing that they are not in any way objective.
Back in my day, telling someone to call the internet police was a joke.
There were multiple child murders this week in the UK. There's no suggestion that Cathy Newman is behind them.
Damn, that's a straight up hard hit piece, full of manufactured and heavily spun bullshit. How are libel laws in Germany/Czech land?
"Vavra believes that European history has no place for people who are not white-skinned"
Lol, they're referring to the Twitter argument where he truthfully points out there are no black people in his game because there were no black people in medieval Czechia. He never says they "have no place" but rather that they weren't there, and he's consulted historians, so he's not going to fabricate them out of nothing and damage the historical accuracy. He also said it's their job to create their own culture and media, not his. Which makes perfect sense to me, unless we also expect native Africans to make all their media with whites and Asians in it.
SJWs can't even use their favorite "But America isn't white, it's diverse and the game should reflect that" angle, because it's Czechia, not America.
No, you should buy the game because all indications based on the kickstarter beta and preview videos/demos are rock solid, and it actually looks/plays good. The additional "fuck you" to those people is just a bonus on top.
Guess i should buy this game as a fuck you to people like this.
The Chinese Government only allows 30 foreign films to be screened in China each year, and because the Star Wars films have been flopping so hard there's talk that future Star Wars films might be banned from China and replaced by films that will actually make money.
Man, I'd love to be a fly on the wall of Bob Iger's office if that happens.
'Episode VIII' leans heavily on references to the originals
What the fuck are they smoking? There's almost nothing referenced about the originals except for the fact that there is a guy named Luke Skywalker who acts nothing like Luke Skywalker, nor does he link anything that happens to the original trilogy in any meaningful way.
The only other original trilogy character is Admiral Ackbar, and he gets spaced in like a minute just to really twist the knife.
There is a dildo called "deceit," and the author has it 9 inches up his ass.
Difficult to say. When the Battlefront 2 release was being overshadowed by the microtransaction controversy, Bob Iger called the head of EA and told him to knock it off (or so I've heard). Iger is a profit-driven man who does not like the Star Wars brand being overshadowed by bad publicity.
If the Han Solo movie bombs, I think it's likely that heads will roll at Lucasfilm. He might even get rid of Kathleen Kennedy, who seems to care more about putting feminism in Star Wars than the quality of the films.
I bet it's because of all the white nationists in China.
“I don’t know why he did that. It’s just not Canada.”
Ooh, that one was lapped up.
Yeah, because despite what you think most Canadians aren't racist and feel this is an overwhelmingly safe country.
There is a difference between news that turns out to be false and fake news. The latter involves the deliberate spreading of misinformation.
Yeah, one is when you do it and the other is when those evil others do it.
An incident like this gives people the ammunition to leverage the rare false report and use it to invalidate larger issues of anti-Muslim hate.
I think it's more ammo about a fake news media that puts their politics ahead of facts.
A newspaper column demanded the family apologize to Canada, implicit in that demand being “they” are not “one of us.” Would an 11-year-old white child be asked for such an apology?
Probably. If an 11-year-old white child made up a story about being attacked by a black or Muslim person are you seriously arguing you wouldn't??
An Angus Reid poll last year showed 46 per cent of Canadians surveyed perceive the presence of Muslims as “damaging” to society.
Not too shocking for a pro-women pro-LGBT society IMO.
It’s worth reminding all those rushing to say racism isn’t Canadian that qualities considered Canadian include compassion for children who make mistakes, no matter how publicly.
Oh, believe me...it's not the child everyone is mad at.
There is something extremely wrong when your child's fear of losing or ruining a headscarf eclipses their fear of lying to the police.
These are the people who DEMAND white people don't report blacks for mugging them. The same people flood crime statistics with butt touching and regretted sex and such so you don't realise that Muslim rape gangs are a problem, just like female genital mutilation and child marriages in said culture. They are the ones who try to hide racial and cultural background from crime stats.
I'm not surprised by any bullshit.
404 Page not found for me. The archive works though.
Ya BOI Zach gets a shout out in there. 85th and 86th most powerful person in comics at once according to the terrible editing at bleeding cool!
The Unreadable Hulk
My sides have just transcended this earthly plane.
The link through Reddit doesn't work, if you copy and paste it into a navigation bar you'll also get it.
Or go to the original source as visible in the upper left hand corner, although for some reason they don't make their cartoons directly linkable, and the image itself is hosted on a content delivery network, but for now, try the 2nd page of cartoons.
There are quite a few people who apparently think using certain words are bad and constantly try to rewrite reality to suit them. Like the famous racism requires privilege argument
The only people to blame for "SJW" becoming a derogatory term are SJWs.
But they don't even consider privilege properly. I mean why do rich black kids always end up being protesters and activists, claiming to be victims of racism? Full of privilege.
They don't need to consider it properly. The definition is there so they can say they're not racist
Not wanting a Geek staple of an icon
ECC shot themselves in the foot, I bet.
So last year continues and half the country are still acting like children. Anyone remember what liberals had to say about the birther movement? Something something you lost the election get over it and shut up. Maybe that attitude should come back in response to the hash tag resist people.
But... but will the people have a chance to meet Shut up Wesley and Felicia, the Chicken that crossed the road, the king and queen of all geekery? They are the ones who matter and they will tell you they are excommunicating you from anything nerdy if you are not left of Mao, neck deep in feminism.
Maybe this is my inner hipster talking, but every circle becomes shit when it reaches mainstream and gets these failed celeb lampreys stuck on it. Would they have died of triggering if there was just ONE dude there who is not a pussy hatter slimy feminazi who believes that he will be the only breeding male left if the Dworkinite psychos murder all men?
Inner hipster or not, you're right. People like Wil Wheaton are a plague, and I honestly don't understand how anyone can stand listening to him for more than .32 femtoseconds without punching him in the nose.
From what I've seen his entire family is like that too. I met Ryan Wheaton at BlizzCon 2016 through one of my gaming friends. Completely unscripted, away from the public, cameras, etc.
Total narcissistic douche.
Don't you dare get raped by ethnic gangs and go to the police, they'll just say you are whore and deserve it, that's what the whole Rotherham story was about, not only the gangs but the useless police.
But saying something offensive online? quick, put all officers on the case!
Talk about fucked up priorities...
>"Asian" rape gangs
>Criticizing "Asian" rape gangs
Ok, after reading the police comments in the story, UK, you fucked. 1984 is already knocking on the door. You blokes need to tell your jackbooted thugs to goosestep themselves out your door if they think they can "advise" you on how not to be "offensive" .
"You were raped and claim it was by a specific set of people? Well you're clearly a racist and we need to arrest you because feels are reals."
I honestly can't believe what the UK has turned into. Between this sort of shit and people being arrested for fairly innocent and obvious trolling it has become the pinnacle of SJW paradise.
I guess England beat Canada over who can become Sweden 2.0 first.
Congrats England, your country is going down the shitter.
Does my hatred for Kotaku exceed my hatred for Bethesda as a company? Yes.
Good job Bethesda.
Don't expect a business to be a perfect consumer advocate. Bethesda contributes a hell of a lot to the video game industry.
Kotaku contributes absolutely nothing positive you couldn't get elsewhere, while also being leeches and contributing immense negatives.
I got blocked by Jason Schreier for tweeting the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's theme at him. It was a good day.
Yup. That made Pete Hines pull a "you're dead to me" on Kotaku.
Kotaku was well within their rights to publish, but Bethesda is well within their right to blacklist Kotaku from all future events they hold. They also don't have to answer emails from Soyboy Supreme.
It's because Austin. The place where people who moved in a few years ago call others barely moving in "gentrifiers." The city's slogan is "Keep Austin Weird" and what the hell is weirder than a cat cafe? In the end, it's a bunch of dumb college kids who are being trained by a couple of older commies who found people dumb enough to listen to them.
As a Texan, it's stuff like this that makes the rest of Texas hate Austin.
It's particularly shitty because the apparent initial reason for the outrage is that the previous shop at that location got fucked over hard, which I sympathize with. But now the owners of that place have moved on and are saying it's fine for this Antifa-lite group to use the Blue Cat as an "example of fighting gentrification".
I'm really confused. The video says the owner keeps being attacked because she's a Nazi but also says they're attacking gentrification.
How is a single person owning a single store gentrification at all?
Kek. Makes sense though, seeing as SocJus doesn’t care for Hispanics beyond their use as a voting phalanx.
