Issues like this can easily be fixed by taking into account people's gender, race and sexuality when making decisions.

Also is anyone else getting server errors.

Posted by KaosAngel

I would also like to add that clearly Apple and Google are sexist as fuck too.

They never have females talk about new product hardware at their press events. Why are tech companies sexist?

Also Microsoft.

@chibithor: I had the site freaking out on me for the last few minutes. Seems back to normal now.

Great read, yea, that may go down as dumbest tweet of the year.

Bravo, keep fighting the good fight against our sexist Sony overlords.

I'm pretty sure everything KaosAngel has ever posted to these forums has always been 100% sincere.

Patrick Klepek, what are your thoughts on the absolute lack of mammories?

Oh yay... Kaos is back... Yay.

I hope this is satire, otherwise it's all kinds of crazy (pic related)

Nintendo appreciates Black Cat's stupidity.

Expert satire, it's just a shame it doesn't apply to those tweets...

I can't personally say ive witnessed many great female spokespersons or just personality's to have on stage especially for a video game thing, i doubt there is really a great deal of the females working for these company's that would carry themselves well enough than what was presented as i do think the presentations where actually ok to watch as far as these sort of shows go.

Are the tweets for real?

A: This lady should be quarantined on Stupid Island for being a bad human being.

B: That's not how circumcision works.

Edited by KaosAngel

@ravenlight: You clearly don't see how she's right? Oh you're one of those people that make fun of Anita for being a woman and think a female wouldn't know more about male circumcision than men. Shame on you.

"software encoding"

Posted by KaosAngel

@fattony12000: Bro, if I can make up random jargon what's stopping females? Sony, Apple, Google, Nintendo, Microsoft, Samsung, HTC, and LG's sexist ass doesn't want women to talk about technology. The lack of females in engineering isn't the problem.

It's the industry.

As reported by female leaders on the twitter and Kotaku.

I don't know what you're upset about. With her command of the English language, she could be Queen of Stupid Island inside a week.

Sorry, but Elizabeth DeLoria's officially in complete fucking joke territory to me now. From the mini "scandal" over her picture in Patrick's Dead Island article, to her quite hypocritical Twitter pic itself, and now this... C'mon. Women in general may have an unfair reputation as being overly reactionary, which certainly has many exceptions in reasonable individuals, but you sure ain't helpin' the cause, lady.

What happened again? I don't remember any scandal.

Posted by kobr24

I don't think any feminist would argue that females should be inserted into these press conferences just for the sake of inclusion. It's just a reminder that the industry is male-dominated and that women have a disturbingly low presence in the industry. As far as presentation at a press conference it only makes sense that it's done by the leaders of any given project (the game designers, project managers, whatever). I think anyone calling out Sony in particular for not including women in the conference is missing the point, if Elizabeth DeLoria just looks at it and says "no woman on the stage...sony is the problem" instead of reading into the deeper issue of why females don't have success in these industries then what's productive about her rage? Would Sony pandering to females by putting Felicia Day up on stage to talk about something she had nothing to do with be any less insulting?

She got pissed that Patrick used her Twitter picture (that she posted publicly herself), as a representation of her in the article. Patrick then changed the picture. Pretty dumb.

Imagine if this chick and Leigh Alexander had a few drinks together. Being in that room would be worse than water boarding.

Posted by Phatmac

Yeah go buy from Nintendo. They're not the same company that had women holding 3DS's while you play them during their own press conference. Nintendo is clearly not sexist at all.

Posted by Creamypies

Haha! This is brilliant. Although, on a serious note, I can't believe there are still people out there looking for EVERY LITTLE FUCKING REASON to label our industry as sexist. I hope Microsoft respond with an all female conference in the next couple of months.

Posted by The_Laughing_Man

Maybe no women wanted to talk? Ever think about that? Public speaking sucks.

That's sexist bro. You're what's wrong with the industry.

I don't how I should feel about this, but when I saw Anita Sarkeesian's name, I knew this was a parody.

Regardless, bravo.

Haha, Deloria protected her tweets.

Yeah. I think that's about it. Both parties are a bit at fault here. The industry is kind of a boys club as far as I've been told and it would be great if there was a stronger female presence in this industry. However, that doesn't mean that we should just put a woman in there for the sake of having a woman there.

However, I do want to point out...


Why do you need to have expertise in engineering or software encoding or hardware building to speak at the PS4 event? Why not allow a female marketer talk to the people instead of these elitist men who were spoon fed masters in engineering? Clearly the problem isn't that females don't go into engineering fields but rather the industry's fault to not promote females to the head of engineering who take other subjects like business or communications or even medical.

This sounds a bit off. The first part kind of sounds like you're saying that a woman couldn't be a master in this field. There are women in this industry who aren't marketers, who do coding, who write and do many things in the video game industry. There are fewer female engineers graduating than men but women do exist. I'm looking at an article of 25 powerful female engineers. A ceo of google is female and also Pinterest has several female engineers at top levels. source

All I'm saying is that your article kind of makes it sound like women can't be engineers and can't be the heads of the video game industry. Also hard science majors..is that a thing? Or do you just mean difficult because a female friend of mine is getting her PhD in marine biology source.

Patrick used her twitter profile picture instead of "asking her" which one he could use. You know, the one with her tits hanging out because she's dressed like Black Cat from Spider-Man.

It definitely sent some mixed messages. You might even call her a "hypocrite."

She is.

Yes. Yay for poorly written satire attacking women who try to open boys to the problems of sexism in the industry. He really nailed those fighting for equal rights! Yay to stick to the people working to end misogyny, rape culture and sexism in gaming culture! They really deserved it.

Forums. Sometimes they're worse than comments.
