    @truthtellah: I recognize the history of how sexual objectification has skewed toward affecting women, but what I'm frustrated by is the appeal to that sort of generality that doesn't directly relate ...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 09/15/2014. on the General Discussion board

    @truthtellah: My only criticism was the absolutist language being used. "Unconsenting sexual objectification = misogyny" is a hell of broad thing to say. The leaking of nude photos of women could be ...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 09/15/2014. on the General Discussion board

    @nmarebfly: Misogyny is the hatred or general discontent specifically targeted at women. Looking at nude photos that were plastered all over reddit doesn't imply hatred of women. Getting off to someo...

    @officermeatbeef: Looking at a woman's leaked nude photos is misogyny now? "Unconsenting sexual objectification" is misogyny?Christ on a cracker, the extent to which serious terms have been stretched ...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Exposing sexism in this generation. on the General Discussion board

    Part of what makes discussions of sexism/racism/homophobia in any medium so difficult (and so frustrating and arbitrary) is that what people perceive as sexist/misogynistic changes over time and is so...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Humble Bundle Summer Sale Calendar (Free games!). on the Humble Bundle board

    I know it's somewhat annoying to complain about free things, especially since I'm glad to have gotten Warlock: Master of the Arcane and all, but I do think it's sort of off-putting the way the free ga...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Microsoft really did buy Mojang. on the Mojang AB board

    It's not very surprising to me that Notch would want to sell it, considering that he's been pretty strongly implying for the last year that he wants to work on other things and that Minecraft is too b...

  • Marokai posted a message in the forum topic Today I feel ashamed to be Swedish. on the Off-Topic board

    This is more than a little dramatic, considering the result. The Swedish Democrats went from like 5% to 13% or so. They're not going to form government and establish the Fourth Reich. If you want to g...
