Thunderf00t’s videos on her should catch you up. I really recommend watching them. I don’t believe she should be receiving any sort of threats, but she’s not receiving them because of her gender, but…
Ok, I’ll bite.
What specifically does he say that you agree with?
For that matter, what specifically is your problem with Sarkeesian?
I’m inviting your opinions here.

This project was originally funded on 16/6/2012. It’s been over two years since she was given ~$159,000, and she’s only delivered six videos in that time, covering only three topics. Her original promise was 12 videos, covering one topic each.
Ignoring anything else, she has not delivered what she promised. I once supported her, and I really hoped that Tropes vs Women would present a clear, unbiased view of women in video games. Anybody who knows me knows how closely I follow stuff like Extra Credits, so I was really rooting for her.
I’m guessing you don’t follow the industry as closely as I do, but if you did, I’d hope you wouldn’t take the side of people like Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn and Dina Karam at all. I think the classical idea of “Feminism” has been hijacked, so personally I consider myself an egalitarian. I hope this sheds a little light on the subject for you.
The makers of The Stanley Parable received a brilliant/terrible response to the game, so they created a trailer specifically for that person. It’s called the Raphael trailer.
I’ve only seen a little bit about The Stanley Parable, and where I was interested before I’m dying to play it now.
if you’ve played The Stanley Parable (and even if you haven’t) i urge you to watch it. it’s worth it, trust me.
Wait did they just make a RvB reference
I’m not familiar with her beyond her Tropes vs. Women series (which are 100% spot-on).
But if this question is in reference to this post, I don’t think anyone should receive rape and death threats because of things they say on the internet (which is what constantly happens to women who speak out about misogyny).
So if by “support” you mean “don’t think she should receive rape and death threats because of her gender”, then yes I support her.
Thunderf00t’s videos on her should catch you up. I really recommend watching them. I don’t believe she should be receiving any sort of threats, but she’s not receiving them because of her gender, but because of the bullshit she’s been peddling.
I’m getting tired. My sleep pattern is back to normal.
Also, I refactored the network code, which was tedious as hell. I just need to implement this in the client and server and that’d be it. Then maybe I can get the heartbeat going.
I haven’t heard from my artist, so I’m going to need to kick him up the butt again.
Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.
Literally all she did was fabricate evidence. Yes there is misogyny in video games, just like every other form of media, but the way she’s going about this is not only dishonest, it’s outright slander in some cases.
I want to implement a heartbeat system, but the way I’ve written the packet and serialization code is bogged down with legacy bullshit. So now, I need to do this right. Each packet will have a serialization function, as well as accessors and mutators for it’s members. Hopefully once I’ve rewritten this, it’ll be easier to add new features.
I’ve been having a lot of motivation trouble lately, partly from being sick all the time, but partly from my depression. It’s been so long since I’ve made a visible improvement, so… yeah, making this game is hard.
Here are more EDH/Commander comics.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord fits me well, but I don’t focus on it’s +1/+1 ability, instead I let my hydras build in power and sac them. I also prefer to let him go to the graveyard on death, and bring him back when I need him.
It’s an unusual way of using him, you see.
