I understand all the reasons for this happening and realize that they are all wayy more fucking important then any complaints I or anyone will have. But with that said, Jeff and vinny quick looks were the only tolerable ones left after ryan passed away.. and now that vinny is moving to new york... I guess I don't even care about anything giant bomb SF does? UPF without vinny is shit. All the premium content without vinny is shit. You might as well close down giant bomb SF after this... god damnit. Vinny made this website still work when patrick and ryan weren't there. Now what happens?
Patrick, quit being a pussy and say you're a feminist and say why. Feminism is, like others have pointed out, advocacy of women's rights on the fundametal basis of gender equality. If you're a feminist you want men and women to be equal. Period.
that may have been what it was intended to mean a long time ago but it is most certainly not what it means now.
For anyone who is saying that the 47% of female gamers aren't real gamers. You don't get to decide that, sorry but if it were up to individuals, I declare that unless you play Dwarf Fortress you're not a real gamer. Here is a close analogy. you don't get to decide what other people call themselves. Fight as much as you want, from a financial standpoint games are going to be made where the money is, so learn to deal with it now.
For anyone who's saying, "THERE ARE BIGGER PROBLEMS", first off stop trying to derail and distract from a problem that is real. Yes there are other problems, and hey, it's kinda insulting to think that I can't support one or more issues at a time. I can add my voice and donate money to support multiple things, if you're saving yourself for the 'one true problem' at the top of the stack, please add "I donated time/money/etc... to ______ cause, and while your issue is important to you, I have limited resources but wish you well."
For anyone shouting "THIS IS A WEBSITE ABOUT VIDEO GAMES", you've not been here very long, I'm pretty sure they spent easily a half out on mattresses on the last pod cast amidst other completely non game related topics. Also people make the games you play, this is an article about these people here, we're not even on a very complex seven degrees here, this is directly related games.
You can spin it anyway you want, 47% of hardcore gamers are not female.
