SJWs are out to destroy games


That's not hyperbole. That's not an exaggeration. That is exactly what their long-term objective is; that's what they mean by asserting that the game industry needs to be "transformed". They can deny it it all they like, but there is absolutely no question that their true objective is to prevent gamers from being able to design, develop, play games without their approval.

If you want to see where SJWs want to take the game industry, look at the publishing industry, where the company that publishes "Beautiful Me:
Essential Health: Strong Beautiful Girls" has announced "we dropped the ‘For Boys’ from the series name [Biggest, Baddest Books for Boys] and we all agree here at Abdo that it was a very smart idea".

Give into the SJW entryists and soon it will be deemed as out of bounds to make games for boys as it already is to publish books for boys.

I put this in the kickstarter thread, but was not sure if you saw it.
since you are planning on using Kickstarter, this is relevant.

It's probably hard to find a trndy social internet company that has "community managers" that aren't brainwashed leftist cannon fodder. Unless they're millenials, in which case they're cynically using SJWBS to achieve social dominance.

Target is the perfect Politically Correct organization, their merchandise is pitched directly at Soccer Moms and Gays. That's why you can't buy a shotgun shell or a spark plug from them -- too Burly Mannish. That's why you have to swipe your own SPAM across the checkout -- so the Somali Muslim cashier needn't touch the outside of a steel can that dubiously claims to contain pork by-products. That's why they ban Salvation Army bellringers from collecting money for charity outside their doors but instead smugly point to the GLBT-friendly non-profits they support from your purchases. NEVER shop at Tar-gay. Wal-mart. Or better still, Mills Fleet Farm.

Vox, perhaps Castalia House might find a niche to exploit in publishing books for girls and boys. I'm being serious. One day, the world might appreciate having a company dedicating books to behavior, amusements, fashion, and prayer focused on the sex of the reader and his peer group.

Whether people like to admit it or not, girls like girl stuff and boys like boy stuff. I like some "boy stuff" but mostly, I'm happiest in my kitchen and with my knitting needles. Creativity expresses itself very clearly when I'm making for others.

Something of which I grow tired with feminists: my desire and ability to create is denigrated because it is done within the confines of domesticity rather than an outward expression of dominance in the greater culture. I have power in my home. Why not exercise and relish it? Limits upon that power are expected, and needed; fembots seem to think men always act with impunity with no checks on their power, but women who don't know how to see will never look at the limits similarly imposed on men.

We will never publish girl stuff for two reasons. First, we have no interest in it. Second, because it is a demand that is already being met. That's how entryism works. Everything becomes girl stuff; there is no shortage of girl stuff in the publishing world these days.

The fact that "for boys" is being eliminated does not mean that "for girls" is too, except in that it increasingly becomes redundant.

Your company, your prerogative.

But I'm thinking of books for girls who want to be girls, not girls who want to imitate boys. My girls are young and are not yet experiencing the throes of adolescence and peer pressure, though it is coming. I think I might have a handle on how to direct and maximize their feminine impulses, but many Gen X or Millenial moms (there will be some, certainly) mayn't know how to direct their girls towards feminine behavior.

Once again we see the minimum non-negotiable demands of the Social Justice Warriors: no white man or boy anywhere is allowed to enjoy anything if a Social Justice Warrior is willing to lie and say she felt "harmed" by it.

Once again we see the only way these worthless people win: they can only win through non-accountable elites who lack loyalty and integrity, and who sell out the lower ranking men whose sides they ought to be on.

Within the law, any time you get a chance to harm the career of one of these sellouts, do it. At least always deny them deference and assumed/entitled social acceptability. They deserve to be treated as the lowest of the low, because they are.

That is nothing in the great matriarchy of Australia. Check out this lunacy (from a federal politician):


"Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens spokesperson for women, has lent her support to “No Gender December”, a recent campaign which aims at raising awareness against the gendered marketing of toys. The initiative, launched by Play Unlimited, encourages parents to sign a pledge to boycott purchasing Christmas gifts that reinforce gender stereotypes. It also calls on Australian politicians to work towards legislating against this practice."

This paragraph from John C. Write's review of Interstellar seems apropos.

Note, again, how a single brief scene, little more than four lines of dialog, in the teacher’s office, economically and dreadfully reveals a future we all see coming even now. Everyone in the audience recognized the situation of official lying without wincing, lying straight-faced and straight in our faces. We all recognize the situation immediately, instinctively, we are so used to public officials lying to us and believing their own lies, like zombies of the mind.

Miguel D'Anconia: "When did Australia become such a pussy country?"

It was a gradual process:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

Miguel D'Anconia: "First they confiscate guns, then this?"

Yes. Exactly like that. It was the same deal.

"Conservative hero" Prime Minister John Howard sold out gun owners, not only attacking them legislatively but symbolically, addressing them wearing a very obvious bullet-proof vest, framing them as would be assassins who needed to lose their toys to protect everyone. When "your side" sells you out, and the only opposition to vote for is flamboyant hard leftists who want to do the same thing but more so, you've got a problem.

It's the same thing over and over: the problem of disloyal elites.

By the way, how much resistance did Americans put up when Ronald Reagan signed a big amnesty? It's the same thing over and over in white countries around the world, and it has been for half a century. People get invested in "their team" and "their heroes" in politics. When your mainstream hero does something devastating to your interests, and the only alternative is clearly worse, in the usual case people have just taken it. Over and over. And since the bribery and behind-the-scenes influence goes always in one direction, over time the drift really adds up.

Miguel D'Anconia: "I also think they have hate speech laws as well."

That's right. Ask me why.

Or specifically, when we were given to understand that the public was against it, and the public was indeed against it, with lots of us petitioning the government not to do this, guess which very important ethnic minority the "conservative" leadership listened to in private instead?

Miguel D'Anconia: "Why is the West committing suicide?"

People should stop saying that. It's not suicide; it's murder.

I believe that yes they do. Do people who support what target is doing and the people who don't give a rip about video games called Grand Theft Auto large in numbers? GTA5 isn't the only video games people buy, most adults wouldn't let their 8 year olds play that... or perhaps they would and they appreciate it not even being on the shelves for some kid to beg them for so they can give in.

How many people who are offended at GTA5 not being sold at target actually shopped at target in the first place? I don't. Target is more expensive then a lot of stores I go to. Not just Wal-Mart either.

Boycotting target over this could be interesting. I would like to know if it made a difference. I am guessing not much of a difference if at all. But it would be interesting to find out.

They stopped selling it because of its depictions of violence against women? Granted Ive only been playing it for about 5 hours, but so far I have seen a grand total of 0 instances of violence against women in my playthrough. I did have virtual sex with a virtual female hooker in a virtual stolen car, and got kicked out of a virtual strip club for feeling up a virtual stripper, but no actual violence against women. I have however killed virtual men numbering in the hundreds, including curb stomping one male virtual biker to death after getting caught porking his virtual meth head girlfriend. I guess that violence is irrelevant from the perspective of whether or not Target should stop selling it. Its only men dieing, after all.

But violence against women? Either the complainers have been playing the game much longer than I have, and taking careful note of each angry virtual glance thrown at each virtual female character, or they're just making shit up.

And yet, to quote Wikipedia, "Grand Theft Auto V broke industry sales records and became the fastest-selling entertainment product in history, earning US $800 million in its first day and US $1 billion in its first three days. Considered one of the most significant titles of the seventh generation of video games, and by many critics as one of the greatest video games of all time, it won year-end accolades, including Game of the Year awards from several gaming publications."

What exactly does Target Australia gain from doing this? Elusive and ephemeral SJW customer goodwill doesn't translate into sales, as near as I can tell. It'd be one thing if they objected to the game on ethical/moral grounds and refused to carry it on that basis, but they didn't even have the guts to do that. All they did was cave to a small group of vocal loudmouths, and turn customers away.

I don't really have a problem with this.

Businesses that restrict what they sell and to who just handicap themselves in the free market, they help boost the sales of their competitors who run better businesses practices, ultimately it's healthy that bad businesses like this simply suffer and go under and are replaced by better ones.

The free market is a wonderful thing, to those aussies I suggest you look for an alternative place to buy your games and consider taking all your gaming purchases there, not just for GTA. Remember that ultimately it's votes with your wallet that count and can make change.

It's clear the protestors have never played GTAV. There is no mission where you are encouraged to conduct violence against women. You certainly can run over, punch, shoot anybody you want, but "violence against women" is not a focus of the game, nor is it encouraged in gameplay. Now, if they decried the overall violence of the game at least they would have a point. I mean, Trevor stomps on a guys head screaming c***, you torture a person (again Trevor)...and of course, both of them are male. Maybe the sane world would take them seriously if they actually read/played the books/games they are so quick to disqualify due to some imagined and perceived threat to women.

The difference being...I hope...that science fiction couldn't sell itself out fast enough. Part of that was the strong libertarian go grrrrl influence. Podkayne, Friday, Wyoming Knott (etc). I suspect that a lot of the people who started down that path, wouldn't have started if they knew where that path would lead.

Yes, there are some worrying signs in this direction from some of the major developers. Lara Croft has been co opted for grrrrl power but that was always going to happen. Just about every character in the Borderlands world is at least bisexual, if not outright gay.

Still that's not too bad and some of that was to be expected. As soon as the art side was allowed any kind of influence at all, the wheel flew hard to the left. However, that creates a situation where the medium is primarily about stories instead of gameplay and the stories are boring and unimaginative. Worse still they bog down game play.

Developers appear to have a different mindset from science fiction authors. Chief among them is the need to make a payroll.

Well I spent a lot of high school "coding" text adventures with ascii art on the TI-85. So I know how cheaply you can make a game. Which is why I added "really solid" modifier.

I didn't do a lot of game development, but back in the 90s when I was coding we had to invent a lot of wheels and hammers and what have you that would take days to compile or render. I am sure kids today have all kinds of drag and drop tools at their disposal.

When we homeschooled, I searched sites dedicated to Christian homeschooling, esp. classical Christian eduction. Made lists of possible reads, read reviews to cull, then searched online at local libraries; later, purchased books we loved. Other homeschool moms are great resources - and time-savers - too. HEAV used to be a great organization. There are actually a lot of options "out there" and that is probably what is so overwhelming. I also used to search curricula online and make book lists from those, as well. You're in the fun years. Enjoy.

Yes. There could be 99 SJW-approved games for every one "misogynist" game, and they would spend all their time trying to destroy that one holdout. This isn't about access, or equal opportunity to create games they like (they've always had that, and mostly declined). It's not about diversity, ensuring that different people with different tastes all have games they enjoy.

"where the medium is primarily about stories instead of gameplay and the stories are boring and unimaginative." I like me a little Telltale every now and then. That said everyone still tiptoes around girls like their a live ied.

Porky,

about that book tour circus related to vox' book, we should be a film crew and have Nate, Stilicho and a few others work the audience at the book signings. There would be enough comedy gold there for at least 2-3 movies

Sincerely

"Man, I can't think of anything that would infuriate SJW's more than "Vox Day's Guide for the Sensible Young Woman".
The book tour would be a freaking circus."
The SJWs would show up to protest bringing their illegitimate kids who would see the people buying the books have intact families. Then they would ask their mommies to buy a book on how to keep a man around for more than a week. Selling marriage and relationships to SJW's illegitimate kids would be easy.

"I think gay men are too fashion forward to buy clothes at target." Some of them pretend to be straight a gay I worked with said when he goes to a new gay bar he jogs in place on the dance floor and they flock to him thinking they can seduce a straight guy, or at least someone new to being gay.

I'm not sure the efforts getting rid of video games is entirely a bad thing. Maybe some of those gamer guys can take the rage they are feelings and the desire for action and it into real political change instead of sublimating it. There are a lot men out there and a little bit of "Screw this society" from the Right would not be amiss since there is little to preserve anyway

Of course it might behoove them to accept that political consequences need to be collective for anyone who supports the Cultural Marxists and that you don't forgive or apply time limits . And yes I used the C word, a little less "I am an individual." and a little more "we are a people with a common heritage they are pissing on ." would enable a lot more victories on our side that's for sure.

Hmmm, let's apply that logic to another topic, and see if it still holds:

I'm not sure the efforts getting rid of [GUNS] is entirely a bad thing. Maybe some of those [GUNOWNERS] can take the rage they are feelings and the desire for action and [channel] it into real political change instead of sublimating it.

Nope, doesn't seem to work that way, either. Guess we should just let them have the games they want, neh?

One of the Ilk with the skills and means should start a shopping webstore called Politically Incorrect or something like it and sell everything from Vox's books to candy cigarettes.

Just checked, apparently someone owns politicallyincorrect.com but no website is there. So, I'm sure the domain name is for sale if someone wants to buy it.

Waterboy, my logic holds up fine.

Threats to ban firearms mobilize people like nothing else and have since the 1930's The election of Obama was also a huge boon for the gun industry. On the same note gamergate did more than almost anything else of late to point out the evil of the SJW's and their totalitarian agenda.

I made a few phone calls before dinner and my findings were zilch. No store employee knew about or where approving of the press release. At the floor level, all they were told to do was to pull it and they were still allowed to buy the games just not the public. I called 2 hubs here where I am near PA and 2 stores in Charlotte that my friends still run. They could not believe the extent of taking Christmas away from kids who like the GTA franchise.

LP's store is about to open online, paypal, bitcoin, credit cards etc., accepted. Due to my health. My 20 somethings cousins will run it (they think my art will sell when its kinda does not sell that well) but I don't know all the details yet. Last and this month has proven to be mired in legal=speak, stock, and where we want our worldviews to reflect in our stock.

Well, drinkers had speakeasies during Prohibition, so maybe gamers can have "play-easies" or something like that.

Sigh, femmos will never know the beauty of getting a military heavy lift helicopter and hoisting a sports car onto the helipad of a skyscraper before driving off it while singing Corona's Rhythm of the Night.

Threats are one thing, but I was specifically addressing active efforts to get rid of them being a good thing, as you implied. Sometimes those efforts succeed, as numerous Second Amendment infringements have demonstrated. And as the ongoing campaign against non-PC games is also beginning to show.

"Violence against women."

Because if it were just violence against men, it would be fine! LOL, men deserve it, just like IRL. Oh, and did I add "LOL"?

[pro-women is codeword for anti-men]

Blogger Mmmm December 06, 2014 10:07 PM  

The violence against men in GTA5 is so far and above the violence towards women in the game, and not just in quantity.

I saw a very disturbing scene in the the game where a man was humiliated extensively before being killed in one of the cut scenes. I don't even like the games, but without a doubt, they wouldn't dare put a similar scene where a woman is killed after being humiliated in such a way.
