    Anyway Drew why you thankful you still have a job, I thought you owned multiple companies and bitcoin hoards???
    They'll probably all be animal people or blob shaped like adventure time.

    I would argue stuff like TMNT is better because it is easier for kids of any background to insert as them. Their age, race, economic background, family size was all sort of gray.

    I don't want to call her gaming card into question because that is often something garbage gate keeping nerds do, BUT people have been arguing for a long time that she doesn't really play that many games and the whole thing was an excuse to milk kickstarter money.

    NeoZ and Sats could probably get together and make better videos with the same arguments.

  3. Remember when old members came back and said they left TNL because of shitty conversations like gamergate and then the same posters that made TNL unreadable back then tried to start that conversation back up again?

    Bravo.
    look here, upon a sig graveyard.

  4. This is your idea of "unreadable?" So leave again, bitch.

    Its probably built into it. A lot of "isms" work on generalizing an other. The patriarchy is a vague blob of powerful men. Maybe even dead men that no longer live but their systems and the oppression they built into it survive. Same with anti racism and obviously in actual racism. Same with marxism. Or communism. Socialism. Capitalism. The other side is a vague blop of people that all think and behave the same.

    Like when you talk about marxism. It talks about the Bourgeoisie, which is a generalization of the ruling wealthy elite. It talks grand sweeping generic terms. You don't stop to talk about the specific individuals and instances where wealthy powerful people have lifted society up, or lifted the poor and middle class up.

    When people do criticism using isms, they work in reverse. They read the material and then find examples. Then they write how the examples fit the mold of the ism. They essentially cherry pick. They rarely discuss the exceptions.

    And its not even specific to progressive thought. Christianity did the same thing. Like they used to think women are objects or inherently bad, so here is a list of the things women did matching the teachings of christianity that shows women are bad, ignoring all the counter examples that women are not bad.

    And coincidentally this is probably how Anita builds her videos. She already knows the criticism of feminist thought, so she just finds examples to fit that narrative, ignoring the ones that don't. At the end you have a video that is easily ripped apart by fans that aren't versed in feminism.

    Those people don't make threads. They never did.

    I will talk about anything with anyone. If people don't like what I'm talking about, change the subject.

    It isn't anyone's job to create topics for you.

  7. I think right now the topic is relevant because we're talking through why people left. This thread will probably take many forms as peopel drop in and air their grievances.

    Tell me what? I'm not that invested in it nor do I care that much. If you're trying to make me feel guilty about some shit then stop it because I don't.

    Edit: Just to squash that side note. It's already been proven without a doubt that Anita has said that she doesn't play games. It was just her using gaming as a platform to push her ideals.

    Edit 2: Now that I look at the picture with more then a passing glance and thanks to Dolemite pointing it out, I get it. Still whatever floats a person's boat I suppose.

    I'm gonna go back to playing the Trials of Mana demo tho I really should be playing Bravely Default II soon along with me debating if I should pick up Animal Crossing or not.
