Milo Yiannopoulos, pedophilia and gay culture.

22 Feb

milo

Today I want to write about a touchy subject matter… again. Its about Milo Yiannopoulos´ statement on the drunken peasants podcast where he is being accused of defending pedophilia.

My views on Milo Yiannopoulos

Just before this scandal emerged I found out that I was tired of Milo Yiannopoulos. I was tired of him as a character and I was also tired of him being used as a concervative shield. The “we can´t be racist, homophobic or anti-semetic cuz we like Milo Yiannopoulos and he is a gay jew who just have sex with black guys”. I dont know how many times I heard that. I am so tired of hearing about Milo Yiannopoulos´active sexlife and what he does and likes to do. If he truly were concervative he would agree that that is a PRIVATE thing and not something to rub into other people´s faces.

I liked Milo Yiannopoulos when he started to become famous. He wrote some interesting pieces in defence of GamerGate and he was fresh air in the debate. But after some years I have grown really tired of him as he grew more and more flamboyant, more and more “outrageous” as a fighter for freedom of expression. I am myself a lover of freedom of expression, but that doesnt mean I think its taktfull or wise to run off with ones mouth over and over again. I found myself wishing that Milo Yiannopoulos would tone down his demeanor and go back to a more serious behavior as he originally was. Perhaps that may be the one good thing to come out of this, that he may tone down is blabbering mouth a bit in the future. You are no Oscar Wild, Milo.

What did Milo Yiannopoulos say and what did he mean

So the scandal came from some “free thinking” on the Drunken Peasants Podcast Episode 193 “aired” Jan 4, 2016. I dont listen to Drunken Peasants Podcast or anything else the AngryAtheist puts out, but when this scandal came out I did know that Milo had said what he said a long time ago. It was another one of the vulgarities I have become so tired of. “Oh, Milo. What a provocateur. How are you a christian concervative again?”

The subject that was addressed on the Drunken Peasants Podcast was child pornography, pedophilia and child sexual abuse. The setting of the Drunken Peasants Podcast is to spew out provocative nonsense to offend people who are easily offended. Its a childish show, just as most of what the AngryAtheist makes. This setting may have been the reason why Milo decided to be “outrageous” again. Here is what he said that seem to provoke people a year later.

He talked about his own sexual experience of having sex with an older man at the age of 13.
“I would say in the situation I describe on the Joe Rogan show, I was definitely the predator in both occasions, as offensive as people may find that. I dont much care. That was certainly my experience of it.” He also jokes “I’m grateful for father Micheal. I would not give as such as good head if it weren’t for him.”

The problem with this talk is that he is running of with his mouth and cant keep it clear if he is talking about his own experience or sexual molestation in general. But it does seem from later statements that that was his intent. To speak from his experience and not draw some liberal view on the matter. He also wants to distinct between sex between pre-pubescent children and pubescent teens. From the strict definition of pedophilia he is right. Wikipedia says: “Pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.” You are not a pedophile if you molest someone after they have reached puberty and have become sexually mature. But he says it with little tact and it can be disturbing to listen to. Not seem to acknowledge the mental maturity that is also relevant to the AGE of CONCENT debate. He does, though, make it clear that he thinks the AGE of CONCENT is “just about right” and that the german AGE of CONCENT which is 14 is a bit low.

The lost context of the gay subculture

When I was young there was a show aired on Norwegian state channel NRK called Queer as Folk (UK-1999). I have seen about two episodes of that show, and one of them was the pilot episode. In the pilot episode we are introduced to three characters. From Wikipedia “The main characters are Stuart Allen Jones (Aidan Gillen), who is highly sexually active, and successfully so. His long-time friend Vince Tyler (Craig Kelly), who has a crush on Stuart, has less luck regarding men. 15-year-old Nathan Maloney (Charlie Hunnam) is new to the gay scene but is not lacking in self-confidence.”.

The still from the sex scene between older man and someone below the british standar of Age of Consent.

The still from the sex scene between older man and someone below the british standar of Age of Consent.

In the first episode we witness Nathan, the 15 year old, have sex with Stuart. This is below the age of consent in the UK, where this show was made. It is also illegal in Norway where I saw the episode on Norwegian television. From what I gather, this is never brought up as something bad and there are noe legal consequences for Stuart having sex with this 15 year old. There was not much debate after the show was aired either if this portrayal was okay or not.

Its kind of difficult to talk about this without understanding that gay subculture have a long history with sexual promiscuity, sexual exploration and sexual hedonism. Causal drug use, bending of ones own and others sexual limits and even braking the age of consent is not uncommon in the gay subculture. One usually laughs when a “christian concervative” says that accepting homosexuality may lead to accepting other more destructive sexual behavior. i.e Pedophilia. But those who laugh dont understand that in the gay subculture there is a lot of grey areas. More than 50. If you want to know more you can google search things like “daddy and son” and “twink”. You will see that there is a lot of this.

Do I stand with Milo?

So do I stand with Milo? Yes, I do. If I understood everything correct his opinion is that 1) pedophila is to be attracted to pre-pubesant children, 2) that not everyone who have sexual encounters below the arbitrary age of consent will feel abused, 3) he supports the age of consent (although not sure if its the UK or US standard, but at least not the german one). If this is his stand then he is NOT an advocate for pedophila. He may have been provocative, but mostly from a hetrosexual and US point of view. I am sure that the LGBTQ will not support him for saying this, but they do know that what he said is very common in the gay subculture. If that is okay or not we need to have a DEBATE about, but that debate can NOT be had if one is suppose to crucify anyone who talks about it.

I wish Milo Yiannopoulos would tone down his character a bit. I think he may say many interessting things, but sometimes, like now, he said something that was not tactful. He also said he was sorry, which means he will be dead by dawn. But yes, I think I understood what he meant, but I had to try to understand it. Not everyone will have that attitude. I think Milo Yiannopoulos have spooken from a gay European perspective and the US do have some serious issues with talking about certain things that we in Europe, for better or worse, talk more freely about. Also I think Milo Yiannopoulos should ask himself if he truly is a concervative. Often he says stuff that does not ring concervative at all.

25 Invisible Benefits of Gaming While Male – A reply

5 Dec

Soooo…

I just saw this little feministic propaganda video from FeministFrequency called 25 Invisible Benefits of Gaming While Male. I got sick to my stumack of it. Let´s watch—>


—————————————————–

As is the style of the time, we (the people) are of course not allowed to debate their brilliance, as there are noe comments allowed on the video.

Listen and believe” is the feminist catchphrase, if I remember correctly. So sit down and shut up. Now fortunately FemFreq has also written a transcript of this little brilliant piece of you-know-what and so I can just copy-paste it and comment on it here. Yay!

But let´s start with this nice little explanation in the description of the video. It reads—>

Please note: This list is referring primarily to straight men who are not transgender but similar lists could be created for white, straight, cis, or able-bodied privilege and there would certainly be some overlap with the conditions identified in this video.

So now we know who FemFreq is calling out, basically everybody, but especially white straight males. They are, after all, the scum of the earth. But one of these scums decided to talk to us about the evils of being a white straight man. How brave of him. He is called McEntoch or whatever. And he starts the video by saying:

Many women have courageously spoken out about how they experience alienation and harassment in gaming. Despite this fact, too many male gamers dismiss the issue as “no big deal” and insist that there isn’t really a problem. One of the luxuries of being a member of a privileged group is that the benefits afforded to us often remain invisible to us. Working towards solutions requires that male gamers become aware of the ways in which we unconsciously benefit from sexism. We can’t work to fix something unless we first understand its effects. With that in mind the following is a checklist of some of the concrete benefits that male gamers automatically receive simply for being men.

This is a brilliant introduction which basically says: If you don´t agree its because you can´t see. “Was blind, but now I see.” You need a religious awakening to the glories of feminism. But here is the thing, if I am blind to my privileges, is it possible feminist are blind to theirs too? Let´s see if we can turn it around later, but now let´s focus on each of the sad misseries women who play videogames have to endure.

I can choose to remain completely oblivious, or indifferent to the harassment that many women face in gaming spaces.

Maybe I am blind, but it is kind of hard to be oblivious to the harassment when people keep ranting on about it. White knigg-its and rad-fems have been crying over how little sensitivity there are in gaming. Now I have tried to be indifferent to female harassment, as I have seen non among my female friends in gaming, but there is always some youtuber or giant bomb user or other forum idiot who needs to hammer it in that there is soo much harassment in gaming. WHERE? WHERE IS IT? Am I that blind?

Of course not… I am not blind, its just that I am not crazy either. You see when someone harrass me or my friends I think “That is an asshole”, not “that is a misogynist from the dark side of patriarchy”. I do not “-ism it up” so to speak. I havent been brainwashed by the femnist and leftwing movment, who needs everything to be about oppression of women or whomever they choose to “help”.

Now take this little let´s play of mine for instance —>


—————————————————-

In this video some player tells me to kill myself. Now what kind of -ism can I blame that on? Since I have identified myself as a white, cis-gendered, “normal” man I have no one to blame. Who will send me money so I can fight oppression? Fact is some people are cruel idiots and that is a gender neutral description. I have had some encounters online with very aggressive women calling me names for sucking at games, but I haven´t cried about it for days on end and said “I am a victim of the materiachy!“. That would be spineless of me. No, as any normal person does, I brush it off and hope I never meet that person again.

I am never told that video games or the surrounding culture is not intended for me because I am male.

Who acctoly says this? Who says “games are not meant for you cuz you are a woman“? The only thing I know is that “adult games” are not meant for children, but even when I meet children who play adult games I rarely comment on it as I do not want to be seen as too much of a prude. But I do think its strange when children around the age of 8 play Borderlands or Payday (I mean what is the Nintendo Wii U meant for? No reason it bombs when children are allowed to play adult games like that).

But I digress… The point is, in my looooong time as a gamer I have never heard “you as a woman can not be a gamer” uttered once. Just for fun, let me google it and see if I can find any thread or blog who says it either. One moment…

I googled “Women can not be gamers” and this is what I found on page 1.

Article one “Why can’t women compete against men at video games? Sexism, that’s why” meaning that the first thing who mentioned it was a feminis article. Now let me browse some more to see if I can find any original statements of this, instead of just perceived notions that people think this.

Nothing on page 2 or 3. On page 4 I found Hearthstone tournament explains why women aren’t allowed to play “. I guess that is kind of sexist. The explanation was “The decision to divide male and female competitions was made in accordance with international sports authorities, as part of our effort to promote e-Sports as a legitimate sports.

But fine… Someone has probably said sometime that women arent gamers. Who cares?

I can publicly post my username, gamertag or contact information online without having to fear being stalked or sexually harassed because of my gender.

This is a feminist classic argument that the world is more threatening for women than men. I.e That if a women is drunk she can get raped or killed, but that never can happen to men etc. This is, to most sane people, bullshit. The world is just as, if not more, threatening to men. Although the chances of being raped are lower (I hope), we can get into violent confrontations and get killed in many other interesting ways.

The fact is: If you publish your real name or contact information online you are entering an extreme sport. I do not do that, and neither should you. The world is filled with crazy people and you are unforgingly naive if you think you can post anything anywhere without getting into trouble. That kind of mentality gives me association to infant or child who stick a fork in an electric outlet. Its dangerous and if you are not a kid YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER!

The world is a dangerous place. It always have been and will always be. There are a million ways to die and if you are dumb you will get killed (Darwinism 101). Feminism want the world to change in such a way as reality is removed. That rules and laws of the world shouldn’t apply to women.

I will never be asked to “prove my gaming cred” simply because of my gender.

I have a funny story about that… No, not really, but its relevant. A woman (I guess, I never spoke to her) messaged me on xbox live after watching my video Let´s Play Resident Evil 5 Versus (with raging) saying that I suck at Resident Evil 5 (which is kind of true). The first thing I did was look at her gamerscore and I saw it was far lower than mine. That is what I replied “Who the hell are you to say I suck when you have far less of a gamerscore than me?“. We later became friends on Xbox. Then I deleted her cuz she annoyed me. End of story.

The point is: Being a gamer is gender neutral, but there still are guidlines. You don´t say someone is a worse player than you if they have a higher gamerscore, or longer playtime or whatever. That is rude!

If I enthusiastically express my fondness for video games no one will automatically assume I’m faking my interest just to “get attention” from other gamers.

Again… Who says this? Where does this idea come from? No one cares about your gender, race or sexuality when you play. All that matters is if you are good or not (especially in team games). The only time anything matters is if you yourself bring it up. If you, as a woman or a gay or a black person or whatever somehow want be to applaud you for doing what we all do. If not, NO ONE CARES!!!

I can look at practically any gaming website, show, or magazine and see the voices of people of my own gender widely represented.

I guess so. I wouldnt know to be honest with you. I rarely read gaming news as I think of it as mainly hype and nonsense. The only thing I care about is wheter or not Xbone will become backwards compatabile (outlook not so good) and I wouldnt care if a woman or a man kept me posted on that.

In fact, although I do support #gamergate, I also find it difficult to get passionate about it as I never read Kotaku (or whatever that newssite is called) or any other gaming news. What I do care about is the highly biased and agenda driven focus some game-“journalists” seem to have that wants to force game narrative to be more gay or female friendly. As I have always said; If you want a game to be more [this or that] make your own game. If not enjoy the games as is, if not, STOP PLAYING!

If you call yourself a gamer but hate everything about games, I don´t think you like games and you are not a gamer. I don´t care what politcal ideas are in a game as long as the game is good and the story interesting. If the game turns into some kind of soapbox for an -ism I probably won´t like it as I do not want to be schooled anymore.

When I go to a gaming event or convention, I can be relatively certain that I won’t be harassed, groped, propositioned or catcalled by total strangers.

I guess so. I wouldnt know to be honest with you. I have never been to a gaming convention. Perhaps I can´t even call myself a gamer then? Well, I was once I think. About 15-16 years ago. There was this Nintendo convention in a old gymhall somewhere in Norway that I was invited to. I remember playing Bubsy and thinking that game was awesome. I never got it though, and everyone who mention the game now seems to say its bad. I don´t know. I just enjoyed the first stage and wanted the game.

I can´t remember any cat-calling or anything else sexist there. I guess it was cuz no one was over the age of 12 and it was mainly boys. This was before games became such a big franchise it is today. Yes, I am old.

I will never be asked or expected to speak for all other gamers who share my gender.

Sometimes I ask the question: “You as [something], what is your view on [subject]“. I think even I asked this dangerous question; “You as a man, have you ever thought women aren´t gamers?” The answer I got was “No”.But I guess some people would call that sexist, homophobic, racist or islamophobic to ask a person, based on their background, a question related to something. I just call that “being inquisitive“. But we shall ask NO QUESTIONS and just listen and learn.

I can be sure that my gaming performance (good or bad) won’t be attributed to or reflect on my gender as a whole.

Oh, I hate when that happens. When I lose to a woman and she says “How does it feel to be beaten by a woman?“. I think “Well, I didnt think much about that until you brought it up” but I just laugh politely hoping she will go away.

The battle of the sexes aren’t one-sided. I remember a lot of sexism (I guess FemFreq would call it “empowerment”) in school, where a female teacher would say something like “Women are so much smarter than men” and the entire class would laugh in agreement.

My gaming ability will never be called into question based on unrelated natural biological functions.

My God, this list is long! I guess they are talking about the period? That special time in a woman´s month when she bleeds out her vag? Or hormons or something? I don´t know. Yes, its true that sometimes people joke about women or men´s biology. If you don´t like it then shut your ears. And please… Shut your mouth to. And yes, men´s biology will also be called into question. We may have a small dick, no balls, be a woman or gay too.

I can be relatively sure my thoughts about video games won’t be dismissed or attacked based solely on my tone of voice, even if I speak in an aggressive, obnoxious, crude or flippant manner.

Who takes a rude bitch seriously, be they man or woman? If anyone goes on a rant its always funny. The sex is irrelevant here. If a woman goes on a tirade we don´t dismiss her anymore than we would a man. If you get angry, you always lose. That is the rule. But it is still funny when people do get angry.

I can openly say that my favorite games are casual, odd, non-violent, artistic, or cute without fear that my opinions will reinforce a stereotype that “men are not real gamers.”

In my little gaming group of male, female, gays and whatnot I always like to say this little phrase “But isnt… isnt… isnt that a child´s game“. Oh, how angry they get. I never play “children´s games” as I find them boring. Angry Bird, Plants vs Zombies, Disney games, Mini Ninjas, Rayman, Space Chimps etc. But no, I wouldnt call into question wether or not you are a gamer or not based on your sex or your gaming preference.

I met an old guy who played Candy Crush Saga (I have never played that game) and I thought “Wow, that is amazing!” and almost felt we were both gamers. “But that is not a genderqueer or a woman! All we should cry about is women and queers of diffrent races“. But he was old! That was my point. I could have been an ageist instead. That is also a bad word.

When purchasing most major video games in a store, chances are I will not be asked if (or assumed to be) buying it for a wife, daughter or girlfriend.

How is this a woman’s problem again? How is this a PROBLEM? When I go to a store and want help selecting a gift I usally tell the person in the store TO WHOM I AM BUYING IT TOO. I want a game for my mother, my sister, my uncle or my brother, they like these types of games and have this age. That is the norm. You don´t let the store clerk guess who you are buying it to. If you do, you are an asshole!

The vast majority of game studios, past and present, have been led and populated primarily by people of my own gender and as such most of their products have been specifically designed to cater to my demographic.

I think that most games are made to a diverse group. They want as many buyers as possible. Infact, a game called Resident Evil 6 was critized for trying to appeal to the masses and not being for the very few. I love Resident Evil 6. In fact I wrote a defence for it on this very blog called “Resident Evil 6: A review and a defense.” as I don´t see the problem with a game being varied and trying to appeal to people from all walks of life.

Feminism has a black and white understanding of the world, also known as “dichotomy” in that if a game isnt made explicitly for women then women can´t enjoy it. If the game, gaming industry or game culture isnt gynocentric (another fancy word), then it is male chauvinist and misogynisc. This is an unhealthy point of view that is devisive and cause conflict. The conflict being #GamerGate and the anger we now see in gamer culture.

I can walk into any gaming store and see images of my gender widely represented as powerful heroes, dastardly villains and non-playable characters alike.

I am pretty sure women can do that too. But then the problem will be that they are too sexualized. And then we say men are also sexualized. And then they will say “power fantasy”. And then there is nothing more to be said. If a sexy woman can´t be a female power fantasy or “empowering” then I guess we can never win with feminist.

I will almost always have the option to play a character of my gender, as most protagonists or heroes will be male by default.

I am just gonna find a online list of female game protagonists and leave it att that. I guess FemFreq hasnt heard of google. Let´s see…

Geek feminism

I guess I could add some more just to contribute. As people may know I love Resident Evil and all of them have strong female characters. Not mentioned on the list was Sheva (RE5), Rebbeca (RE0), Ada Wong (RE4, RE6) Sherry Birkin (RE6), Helena Harper (RE6), Jessica Sherawat (RE: Revelations) and perhaps more provocatively Rachael Foley (REvalation) which I think is a fascinating character but I understand that many will find her “sexist” and “weak”. But as someone said: She is the first character in Resident Evil in a long time that showed actual fear of the events going on.

Also Chell form (Portal 1-2), Zoey (L4D), Rochelle (L4D2), Lilith the Siren (Borderlands 1-2), Maya the Siren (Borderlands 2). Those two from Dead Island (God I hate that game!). That was from my game collection. So the question is: Is this enough strong female characters you can play? If not, how many should it be and why?

I do not have to carefully navigate my engagement with online communities or gaming spaces in order to avoid or mitigate the possibility of being harassed because of my gender.

Will this list never END?!?!?! It´s important that they added “because of my gender“, cuz they know that most of us get harassed once in a while by others, but not always can we say it was because of our gender. I have been “harassed” because of my gender but I refuse to bitch and complain about it. And that is what this is; Bitching and complaining.

I probably never think about hiding my real-life gender online through my gamer-name, my avatar choice, or by muting voice-chat, out of fear of harassment resulting from my being male.

Do women? I know of… bah… I know off… my head hurts… I feel so faint. It never ends. I don´t want to debunkt anymore. I don´t want to. It just goes on and on. Okay… Let me try one more time. I don´t know any female gamers that has pretended to be male to hide their identiy. NO ONE! The only one I know of…jeez, I can´t belive I am writing this… the only example I know is of the opposite. Males who use female avatars.

When I enter an online game, I can be relatively sure I won’t be attacked or harassed when and if my real-life gender is made public

I don´t think women do that a lot either.

If I am trash-talked or verbally berated while playing online, it will not be because I am male nor will my gender be invoked as an insult.

Isnt this just rephrasing of the same argument?

While playing online with people I don’t know I won’t be interrogated about the size and shape of my real-life body parts, nor will I be pressured to share intimate details about my sex life for the pleasure of other players.

Then you havent played with gay gamers or female gamers who are attractive to you, or being the only male gamer in a chatroom.

Complete strangers generally do not send me unsolicited images of their genitalia or demand to see me naked on the basis of being a male gamer.

Then you havent played with gay gamers or female gamers who are attractive to you, or being the only male gamer in a chatroom.

In multiplayer games I can be pretty sure that conversations between other players will not focus on speculation about my “attractiveness” or “sexual availability” in real-life.

Then you havent played with gay gamers or female gamers who are attractive to you, or being the only male gamer in a chatroom.

If I choose to point out sexism in gaming, my observations will not be seen as self-serving, and will therefore be perceived as more credible and worthy of respect than those of my female counterparts, even if they are saying the exact same thing.

White knights!!!!! We call them WHITE KNIGHTS!!!! And we think they try to be PC cuz they think they will get laid by talking shit!

Because it was created by a straight white man, this checklist will likely be taken more seriously than if it had been written by virtually any female gamer.

You are all a bunch of fucking WHITE KNIGHTS!!! SJWs who want to change the world into some kind of horrible bland grey zone of indifference.

These benefits should not be reserved for men.

This list is not meant to suggest that male gamers are always treated well. Sometimes we are bullied or subjected to online nastiness, but it is not based on or because of our gender.

In order to make change first we need to acknowledge the problem, and then we must take responsibility for it as a community, so we can actively work together, with people of all genders, to dismantle the parts of gaming culture that perpetuate these imbalances.

All people, of all genders, must be treated with respect and dignity.

Together, we can make gaming better.
Together, we will make gaming better.

Oh, thank God its over. I didnt think it would take this long to get trough it. Jeez, they sure like to talk those feminist, white knights and SJWs. Give meg strength.

If I may be a bit conspiratorial here… Perhaps that is their strategy? To talk us to death. We are not allowed to talk back, but they go on endless monologues. I am tired now. I need to rest.

Blog 2.0 - So tired now. I guess I can´t complain. I did it valentary. Hey, the same can be said about female gamers.

Ehhhhh… hehehehahahihiha… yeah.

I messed up my entire life because I got high
I lost my kids and wife because I got high
now I’m sleeping on the sidewalk and I know why (why man?) yea heyy,
– cause I got high

Afroman – Because I Got High (A one hit wonder)

Ok. Here we go again. I don´t need to refer to any particular article on the subject cuz one is probably written everyday. It´s all about legalizing that weed, yo! It´s time right? NO!!! It´s not time. 420 should not come if I can help it.

But hey, Andy… Hey… Hey… Hey… Andy… Hey… it´s all lies man. You believe the liiie man! Told by the goverment and shit. It´s all good. It´s all good. Here… here… hava, hava, hava split. Relax man. You be all tense. Jeez, you need to calm down and listen to reason. How many violent acts have been done by weedsmoking? NON! How many acts of violence have been done by alchol? Alot! Yeah. ALOT! That´s right. That´s right. Weed is no more dangerous than alchol, cigarettes and coffee. Infact it´s better for you. If it wasnt for the new world order and reptilians we be all huffing the pipe by now… Stop buying into the stereotype man!

“Stereotypical” weed smoker are stereotypical cuz marijuana smoking changes a persons character and psychology. It´s not just like alcohol or cigarettes.

They worship the drug as a side effect of the drug. Just like any drug user does. If you talk to a heroin addict before it goes down under he will say the same thing about heroin as potheads do about weed. “Oh, my heroin is pure and so its… eh… in fact less dangerous than alcohol and cigarettes.

That is what drugs do to you. They change your brain and so your personality. Side effects of weed smoking is paranoia and will make you a boring person living for the next high.

As with all drug use some people have a high tolerance and others have a low tolerance depending on various things and so there will be high functional weed smokers and low functional weed smokers. But sooner or later they all turn into that same boring liberal idealist who just wanna get high and watch “how high” and eat nachos.

There is a reason why drugs are bad and illegal and so it should be. The subculture will not change when weed becomes legal. They will just grow in size.

I’m in love with Mary Jane.
She’s my main thing.
She makes me feel alright.
She makes my heart sing.
And when I’m feeling low,
She comes as no surprise.
Turns me on with her love.
Takes me to paradise.

Ubi-suck! Censoring South Park Stick of Truth in Europe

7 Mar

I fucking hate Ubisoft! I am sorry that I swore but I do. For a long time I just disdained them. All their games were boring and I was glad I didn’t buy any of them. With the exception of FarCry 3 most games with the Ubisoft icon was boring and brain dead. Assassins Creed was one example, FarCry 1 was another, Tom Clancy games are always stupefying, Rayman I have never played and never will. Point being, if I can avoid that logo, I will, but now I couldn’t as they have grabbed their clutches on Obsediant´s game South Park Stick of Truth and I love South Park.

So what can we expect from this horrible game company that is probably worse than EA in most regards? Well, they decided to censure South Park Stick of Truth in Europe. What the… sorry I have to swear again… FUCK?!?!

Some idiot wrote the following on Ubisofts facebook page:

“Hey Ubisoft –

Why did you censor Stick of Truth in Europe but not in the US? It’s the US that’s a fundamentalist pit, not Europe!”

Apart from his ignorance when it comes to American freedom of expression he does have a point. That Europe is suppose to be just as open minded (not that we are).

Although I was surprise to see that not more people was angry at Ubisoft´s overstep the angry comments on their facebook page usually spawned the following reply

the PC version of the game is available without cuts, the console version has been altered slightly. Be aware however that it is just a few scenes on the console version that are shown as images and text instead of animation – it wont hinder your experience.

So many more questions stir at such a comment. Why is the PC version uncut? Why do Ubisoft need to point out that the PC version is uncut? Why is the console version censured? What is the difference between a PC platform and a console platform when it comes to content?

As I have understood it, cutting the European Xbox/PS3 version of Stick of Truth was entirely a Ubisoft initiative. There were no European demand for cutting the games content. Germany have banned the game in its entity, but not because of what was cut. And PEGI (Pan-European Game Information) has rated the game 18, but after that issued no complaints about the game. The game is still rated 18, but many mini-games in the game has been removed. And yes, Ubisoft! It does hinder the experience. Most (dare I say ALL?) censure does!

I have now played about halfway trough the game Stick of Truth. And I have experienced the ban and its horrible. I would be dramatical if I said it ruined the game and it wouldn’t be true. The censured parts ruin the game like a scratch in a cd ruins a song. You can hear the song, and enjoy it, but every time it skips it takes you out of it. The same goes for Stick of Truth. All of the parts intact are GREAT! I love it. But when I arrive at the cut parts I am instantly dragged out of my enjoyment and get a feeling of void.

I feel a void cuz for an instant I feel like I am 10 years old again, in school, being punished for trying to live my life the way I want it. When a child grows up it has to learn to adapt to people in their environment and for good and bad teachers forces that upon you in school. But as a child you dream of becoming an adult so you can do what you want. You can watch the movies you want to watch, listen to the music you want, drink and eat what you want. In short: To be free. Every time I see those cuts in the game I am reminded how little freedom I really have. I have ranted to Ubisoft on Twitter, on Facebook and now on my blog and they refuse to apply to my demand: To give europeans full access to the games content trough DLC. I know that, but I think its important to at least try to get that awful company to remove that horrible, fully voluntary censorship.

So the question I usually get when I am on my little crusades for freedom is: Why is this a big deal? Why does it matter? Why do you care? Which proves that there are stupid questions in the world. But here I will answer it anyway.

It doesn’t matter! No single act of censorship, book burning or even mass-murder matter in the greater scheme of things. You could just plug out of this world entirely if you like and just flow on the stale sea of apathy.

I care cuz of two things: 1) I love South Park and 2) I hate censorship. If this was a family Guy game I probably wouldn’t care. Let the fans of that franchise handle that battle (although I doubt the would).

I have been looking forward for this game since the day it was announced and been waiting over a year I think. Then suddenly Ubisoft gets a vision or whatever was the reason that they should remove content… Just because?

Fuck Ubisuck!

Why I hate PC gaming, and cant stand PC gamers!

23 Feb

This will be my first rant on gaming and belive me a rant it shall be. I am pissed off! But first I need to share a little bit of a backstory.

A little bit of a backstory

I don´t know if you´ve heard but Xbox One came out and it was awful. As a 360 player I wanted the Xbox one to be good, but that console was purely made for the developers. The consumers it had the least in mind (if at all). Everything was wrong with the console and the list grew longer everyday. From the start it was bound to fail, but just when you thought Microsoft couldn’t stoup any lower they seemed to find a new way.

The Xbone, as it soon would be called, became a parody of a sleazy merchant trying to sell all kinds of disadvantages as something positive. I soon got the feeling I should retire as a gamer and focus on my yacht sailing, poetry writing or basket weaving instead. The Xbone was just not apperticing and there was no other gaming platform I wanted to jump on.

I never liked Playstation. I found it always to be an impersonal console that always was “more powerful” than competitors… but that was it. No innovation other than pixel power. The PS4 was the same thing. Oh, yes, it was “more powerful” than Xbone and Wii U. So what else is new? That has always been the case. Sony likes the console monster but it has nothing more to offer than power.

The Wii U had the opposite problem. Where Sony had much power but no innovation, Wii U had no power and all innovation. I got burned by the old Wii and knew that a new Wii U was not an option. Being on the console losing side is always a sad thing. When every other game is sold on the other consoles and you got some obscure games no one want to play.

It seemed that no console was for me. Then a friend of mine got converted into the cult of PC gaming. He, as me, was a 360 player who knew that the Xbone was not an option. If Microsoft didnt turn their wicked ways then we had to go elsewhere for our e-game fun. My friend had discovered Steam and wanted be to awaken and see the joy of PC gaming aswell. I said “No!”. I had been a PC gamer myself back in the day and I knew for experience that PC gaming was worse than most.

The Rant!

getontheforums

PC gaming is the worst! It is the most annoying thing ever!!! To me it is a riddle how someone can even be bothered with it as everything is a effing hazzle. Yes, you get the best graphic on PC. Yes, a mouse makes a better aimer than a joystick. AND THAT IS IT!!! Everything else is better on a console. Here is a list of the top 5 worst things about playing on a PC.

1) Constant compatibility stress!

Every year new chips, cards and other hardware is put out on marked. And games on PC always is the cutting edge when it comes to graphics. That is its good side. The bad side is that this makes stress for game buyers as they have to make sure that the game is possible to play on their computer. If you have a mac then certain games are not usable on that. If you use linux fewer games still. And then it is a question of OS. I had to buy a new computer to play the EXPANSION PACK on StarCraft 2. I got a message from Blizzard that said that the next update for StarCraft 2 would make it incompatible with my Mac OS. What the FUUUUUUUUU?!?! Then I bought a cheap new computer with Windows 8. Now I can finally play StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm but it is a bit laggy of course. You know, since I bought a laptop that was suppose to be a little more than a gaming platform.

2) Installing games
Having to install games is annoying. I know that consoles have to do it now aswell, but that is dumb. Especially when you have to write in configuration keys and register online etc. etc. I dont even think the Xbone demands that much installing.

3) Outdated computers.
When you buy a console you buy it for convenience. If the game says Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii you know it is going to work on your console. That is not so on PC. I have written above about computability issues. And there is a lot of those. One of them is having computer that is not the newest. I remember that from youth. I bought a computer and was so happy cuz now I could play the latest games. Two-three years later I could still buy games that was new but… it was bad! Really, really bad. The games were lagging, even on low resolution. The computer froze constantly and the gaming experience was not enjoyable at all. I could ofcourse just “buy a new computer” or “buy new hardware” and I did that. But that is stress and inconvinence. When I have to update everything from hardrive to grapchic card just to play a game. That is annoying!

4) Bugs and glitches.
Sometime you get errors when playing a console game, but when you get them on PC you have to figure them out for yourself. If a console game isnt working you know its most likley a fault with the disc. On computers it can be a hardware problem, a drive problem, a disc problem, a hard drive problem, memory problem, a virus or you just forgot to “change the thing”. Troubleshooting on console is saying a swear and return to the store. Troubleshooting on console means hours on forums looking for patches.

5) Every little problem demands that you have to be a computer ace.
Ok. I have been a pc gamer sine the DoS era. I have installed games, and adjusted settings in dos! You know that black and white thing? If you can understand Dos you can understand most and I have time and time again tried to figure out what is wrong with this and that and found out on my own or by forum help. BUT I do not think its relaxing fun. Perhaps PC gamers think that the time and preparation for playing a game is part of the fun of gaming… But I DO NOT! I think its a hazzle and an annoyance. Today I was on steam and wanted to play a game I bought. I had tried it with a mouse and keyboard but found out that it was very troublesome to play like that so decided to finally try to use mt Xbox360 controller. You can do that you know and its “EASY”! Easy, of course in computer terms, means hours trying to figure out why it wasnt easy at all. I plugged in my controller, the computer registered it, but nothing happened. Then I went on forums. I installed drivers (that was already on my computer) and now it seems that I can not use that 360 type controller. It has to be another type. FUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!

Conclusion

All gamers are nerds in some way. Many can be asocial, weird, rude and sometimes downright anti-social. But you wont find bigger nerds than the PC gamer. The person who thinks that countless hours of preparation to play a game is “fun”. I would even go as far as saying that PC gamers aren’t gamers at all as the focus of playing games is secondary to to high graphics and latest tech stuff. If you enjoy bragging about what types of resolution your game have your sort of forgot what gaming is all about.

17 Feb

I just can´t help but think how many dumb people there are at Microsoft right now. Especially in the Xbox One part of the company. They have done everything in their power to make that console as unappetizing as possible. Now I read that PS4 has beaten Xbone in most markets across the world. The reasons are many and all of them are due to Microsofts BAD business plans. I just would have loved to see a The Apprentice show with the numb nuts at Xbox One. Have Donald Trump fire one after another because of the constant stupid ideas thye put out.

Donald: “So you decided to not make Xbox One compatible with previous gen?
Apprentice#1: “Yes, we were planing on re-released xbox 360 games for xbox one for full price!
Donald: “You are fired

Donald: “So you have decided to not release Xbox One in one of the riches countries in the world? (Norway)”
Apprentice#2: “Yes, we have no idea why, but it will be on sale there 4 months after the rest of the world
Donald “You are fired!

Donald: “So instead of removing the kinect (that no one wants) from the “cheaper version” of Xbone you have decided to instead remove the disc drive? Why?
apperntice #3: “Yes, we want players to be at the mercy of Xbox Marked Place as we then can force them to buy games for up to 30$ more than in stores. We think that will bring players back to our consoll!”
Donald: “You are fired

and many more exciting reasons to fire people. You may have some of your own. Feel free to share 😉

… as long as its Sara Palin or someone else on the right.

Soo… There is this left wing video blog/youtube tirade center called “The Young Turks”. He decided to go into battle for “the good guy” called Martin Bashir. Their video “Sarah Palin Humbly Accepts Apology, Inspires The World” makes fun of Sara Palin in many creative ways and then defends Martin Bashir´s take down of that woman.

Stupid as I am I decided to defend the victim in this… The result can be read in the screen grab below.

AndyAce83´s Let´s Play – Episode 06: BioShock 2 Multiplayer – “I Have No Dime For You”

21 Jul

Copyright… Sometimes it seems copy-wrong. I made a video featuring Bing Crosby singing a song from about 1931 called “Brother, can you spare a dime?“. Of course some people got the rights to that song soo… That means I have none. I got this message:

Press the image to get it larger.

Press the image to get it larger.

I disputed on fair use since I: 1) Did not use the entire song, 2) The song is old, 3) The song is a reference to the game, 4) its non commercial.

If you can watch this video then it worked. If not… Some guys just “owns the rights” to a song, written 82 years ago and song by a guy who died 36 years ago.


—————————————–

Now I am not a socialist so I am all for copyright! People should be able to own their own work, but there has to be reasonable limits. Using a song that is 82 years old, must be okay. Especially when it isnt being used in its entirety and the guy who sang it is long dead. The only people who make money of this is guys who buy and re-buy copyrights. In other words A$$HOLES! Copyright, yes. Copywrong, NO!

I also love the irony of the theme of the song and how some people will not “spare me a dime“.

Microsoft in the head – The stupidity of Xbox One!

9 Jun

Sooo…

I just saw AngryJoe´s rant, part 2, on the Xbox One. And as with the first one, I totally agree with him. And now I want to give a piece of my mind as well to Microsoft´s nonsense. To jump on the bandwagon of hate that is the Xbox One.

I am what is called a “causal gamer“. I have played games since the NES, back in the 90´s but was mainly a computer-gamer until the Nintendo Game Cube came, which I bought to play all of the Resident Evil games, that got a re-release on that consoll.

Later, I bought the Wii as it seemed innovating and new. Unfortunately, I soon learned how fast the novilty wears out. I stil own it dough do to its backward compatibility with the GameCube.

I then bought the Xbox360,since Resident Evil 5 came out, and many of my friends owned it as well. The achievements, the later the avatars and the social aspects of the console made me a fanboy.

Soo… Since I am a “causal gamer” I dont need my console to be «pure» as some people online seem to complain about. I dont care that I can do alot of other stuff with my Xbox too. That is a pluss, and is already a big part of the Xbox360. To me there is no problem that Xbox wants to enhance the social aspects and focus on more than the one medium of gameing. I want to watch Netflix on my TV, and its nice I can do that on my console. The “all in one box” idea seems okay to me.

But this should be an added bonus to the XboxOne NOT THE ENTIRE THING! In the XboxOneReveal this seemed to be the only thing worth mentioning. All of the features I saw I can do on my PC if I wanted to. I do not need it, but again it would have been a nice bonus to the other great things about the XboxOne. But here´s the thing… There are no other things to the XboxOne. Only disadvantages to the owner.

First of, NON of the games presented wanted me to buy the new Xbox. I do not care for sports, most gamers I know dont care for sports either, and still half of the games mentioned was sports games made by EA. A company I do not like, (although I am not passionately against them either). I fortunately have never wanted any of their games.

Anyway… The second game reveal was a “realistic” FPS shooter game and again I DO NOT CARE! Perhaps because I am not a pacifist and have been in the army and shot with real guns and stood guard in the rain hating every second of it, I do not like «realistic» war games since the most real will always be the real. (Also I have a philosophical distaste for realness in the arts. But I want go into that now.)

But all of this again is not my main issue. Not even the forced kintect stuff. I dont want any KINECT! I didnt buy it for my 360, I have no need for it on any other console either. I have yet to see any reason to get one apart from the «wii novelty» I learned from buying the wii. That it is forced on me,, and I have to have it plugged in seems such a stupid solution that I smell fail all over.

Now I get pissed when I loose at a game. I can get irrationally (although non violently) angry and I do not want a camera in my face while I swear uncontrollably followed by childish whining of «how bad the game is». So I do not want a kinect when I loose and I really DONT WANT A KINECT connected all the time. But this, to me, is not the main issue either.

My main issue with the Xbox One, as a causal gamer, is that its not backwards compatible with the 360 and that games can not be redistributed.

I have now about 30 + games in my Xbox360 library. All of them bought new. Not since my old NES days did I try to resell any of my games. I am a collector (not a hoarder!). I collect books, music, films and games. I like to put it all on display to show friends and family what I enjoy and is important to me. Now, where am I going to place my old 360 games? In the bin perhaps? They will soon basically be useless. Especially since my old 360 console is making some strange ominous noises.

But even though I only buy games new, I do borrow games from friends, and that is for the XBOX ONE the same as buying used and “must not be allowed“. Yeah, yeah. Micrsoft did allow you to borrow your game to ONE friend… ONCE! Isnt that nice? Also, even if I do not buy, or sell used games, I do understand that others want to. And so, although I do not have a dog in that fight, I still think its nonsensical by Microsoft to do this.

Some geeks have said to me that there are reasons why the Xbox One cant read old Xbox 360 games. They basically say the same thing as wikipedia «The Xbox One will not be backward compatible with Xbox 360 content, as the systems use different core architectures. The Xbox 360 uses a PowerPC architecture while the Xbox One uses a x86-based one». The excuse does sound really good, but I know its just BS. If Microsoft wanted to they could. And dont give me the “PS3 did but it became to expensive” nonsense either. The first PS3, with backwards compatibility, was mainly expensive because it was NEW, not because it had backwards compatibility. Also, both PS4 and Xbox 360 has been called «PC in a box» because they are so «powerful». Well then, if XboxOne is so powerful, it could make an EFFING EMULATOR!!!

In sum: Xbox one is not a console I would recommended at this point. In fact, I would say, and I am sorry to swear, that the Xbox One is a shit cake with vomit icing. There is nothing redeemable at all. Nothing! They just dont give a *bleep*. This console was not made for the consumer, but for the cooperations. Note: I am not a socialist. I do not envy the rich and do not want to destroy the big producers. That said I still think that a good capitalist society is based on give and take. We as consumers have rights, and we SHOULD NOT BUY the Xbox One as its obviously not made for us to buy but only for Microsoft to sell…out. Get it? Made a pun there.

Anita Sarkeesian – Is making me misogynistic… more so.

29 Jan

FemFreq01Anita Sarkeesian is a bitch! There, I´ve said it. Did it make me feel better? No, not really. But she is a bitch. Not only a bitch, but a real c*nt too. I am sorry, but the worst descriptive words you can find on women would probably fit her perfectly. Perhaps with the exception of degrading words describing women of promiscuous nature. Anita Sarkeesian seems to be such a cold fish that I doubt that she enjoys any physical relation what so ever. Least of all with a man.

But lets take a break [“brake” changed to “break” on 29 of july 2013] from my hatred of this woman and let me instead say WHY I have such dark feelings towards her. There are three main reasons my I feel nauseated every time I see and hear her: 1) Her personality, 2) Her BS-PC feminist analysis of everything that perverts and distorts great works of art/ entertainment and 3) her fake victimhood.

But first let me answer the most important question…

Who is Anita Sarkeesian?

If you take any still picture from any Feminist Frequency video you would get an accurate representation of her opinion; Something taken out of context.

If you take any still picture from any Feminist Frequency video you would get an accurate representation of her opinion; Something taken out of context.

If you are not a gamer, or someone interested in the war between the sexes, you may not have heard of Anita Sarkeesian. In short: She is a feminist who believes she is entitled to force her perspective on any artform and demand it to become more gynocentric, pro-female and anti-male.

This is of course not stated explicitly, but implied in her constant bashing of different kind of popular texts (i.e music, books film, TV or games) in entertainment. For a while she was just another unsatisfied women who thought she was smart since she was opinionated. She made lots and lots of “feminist deconstruction” of popular entertainment on her videoblog feminist frequency on youtube, but no one cared until she announced she wanted to deconstruct video-games to.

Ugh, I dont know why I get so disgusted with her every time she uses the word deconstruct. I would guess it is because it sounds so pretentious. Like that word has some ``holy´´ meaning other than its true meaning which is to analyze something in a way it was not meant to.

Why this was the last straw, I dont know, but her whining suddenly was met with hostility. This probably surprised her as she so clearly though she as a woman was entitled to bitch to anyone about her problems with the world.

I would suspect that the reason is that the gaming community is filled with passionate people who burn for their hobby and they didnt want this noob woman coming in from the left and change everything cuz “she felt like it“.

So she was met with opposition and hostility. Some people came with intellectual counter arguments. Others, like me, gave more ironic and sarcastic comments on her annoying personality and attitude of entitlement. Sadly some also gave hateful and over the top comments about rape and other insane extremes. Let´s see what she has to say about this:

Do I feel sad for her? Hell no. I hate feminism with every inch of my body and this woman is the very personification of everything I hate about that -ism. If she didn’t like the heat she should´ve stayed away from the kitchen, and she being a feminist I would suspect she didn’t want to be in the kitchen in the first place.

But enough silly puns… The point is; I dont like sailor language and I dont like people demeaning people to the extreme, but I, being provocative myself, can say that you do get hateful comments but that is what to expect. That is what one should expect if one is being or trying to be provocative. If I went into a feminist rave and said “Go make me a sandwich you fat ugly skanks” I would not be surprised by retaliation any less than being bit by putting my hand down a snakehol. And besides, she has the personality that could aggravate a weed-plant.

1) Her personality

If I for some reason where invited to a hipster New York party with liberal know-it-alls and met Anita Sarkeesian I think I would have left within the hour. That woman shows every sign in her videos of a person I would not go well together with. She is opinionated in the way where its clear she has read a lot of books, and made a lot of notes, but not really understood it.

She probably know a lot of words, terms and phrases and know of great and not so great thinkers of the academia but have no meta-cognition and deeper understanding of anything. Watching her movies she makes a lot of gestures, making smug and smirky facial expression. She is the kind of intellectual that is paradoxically NOT intellectual, just a scholar. She has a lot of jigsaws pieces in her head, nuggets of facts and studies, but no ability to see the picture. This becomes clear when she starts to analyses the “tropes” as she calls it.

2) Her BS-PC feminist analysis of everything that perverts and distorts great works of art/ entertainment

FemFreq02
Tropes” is a text-analytical term that could be easily replaced with terms like “stereotype”, “clisje”, or “common narrative tools”. Basically, tropes is every pattern you can find in symptomatic (see: Film Art for more) interpretation/ analysis of a text. Meaning: Finding the broad meaning of what every love song has in comment over what this or that one love song means. You with? Or, as Anita Sarkeesian does, to claim to find bigotry, hate, rape and phallus symbols in everything.

I have seen a lot of Anita Sarkeesian videos on youtube as I have this perverse need to study things I do not like. To try to understand it. I find myself drawn to things that repulses me. Watching her videos, I also started to see “tropes” with her videos. There definitely are small patterns in her “analysis” of pop-culture that could be nice to “deconstruct”.

With few exceptions she shows no real pleasure in the arts but see only faults. In 2009, she started her show “Tropes vs women” with 6 videos where she rants about why Dollhouse is being produced for another season but The Sarah Connor Chronicles does not (which obviously is another example of the WAR AGAINST WOMEN), how Dollhouse (2009) is a metaphor for rape (or something like that), that there is a RIGHT way (her way) and a WRONG why “Guys Should Hate Twilight“, and that gays should be introduced in a show “just in passing“.

In every video she speaks with a strange authorial attitude that says art and entertainment should be just like she wants it, and that there is a right and a wrong way to make art and to watch art. When she analyses different texts she always forces her convictions on it, even when its clear that her -isms where not meant for it. The results are sour comments on the art that at best is bitching and at it´s worst is complete misinterpretations of the text that at time can be perverse.

The best example I have heard of her forcing feminist insanity and perverting something nice with her -isms is when she “analyses” the “Top 5 Creepy and/or Sexist Christmas Songs“. In that video she kills any christmas cheer and replaced it with tales of suppression, dependence and rape. Her #1 choice for sexist christmas songs are the song “Baby, its cold outside” where she thinks the song is about coercing and rape, not a man trying to court a woman who is “playing hard to get” which is the normal way to listen to the song.

But of course one can not argue with her, cuz she has closed of all comments and one is not allowed to rate her either. This because she has fallen victim to the evil “trolls” of the Internet, or more truthfully, she doesn’t want to hear anyone but herself and her likeminded.

3) Her fake victimhood

Anita Sarkeesian is a true victim, but not for she wants you to believe, but she is the slave of the mind shrinking collective thinking of progressivism. Progressivism is an umbrella-term for many other -isms like feminism and other leftwing ideologies and world views.

Progressivism wants change (Yes, WE can!) and that change is based on an understanding of the world that there are victims and perpetrators. These perpetrators are not what healthy people view as perpetrators (like criminals) but instead a broad group of people. This broad group can be called “rich white heterosexual christian males (that smokes)“. These are the enemies that needs to be “deconstructed”.

There are many progressive “thinkers” and they work from different angels trying to destroy the evils of the world. Some progressives focus on the rich [1], others on the white [2], [3], some one Christians [4] and some one the males [5].

Their understanding is thatrich white heterosexual christian males (that smokes)” are evil and causes the world to crumble with their powers of “hate” a.k.a greed, racism, homophobia religious intolerance or misogyny. Everyone who is not a “rich white heterosexual christian males (that smokes)” is the victim of the “rich white heterosexual christian males´s (that smokes)” hate and Anita Sarkeesian is one of these victims.

A victim who is also getting rich on her claims of oppression. Being politically correct is big business, but to state that Anita Sarkeesian is getting rich on her whining is of course misogynistic and hateful. If I may draw some numbers out of my ass I would stipulate she has gotten a grand a slur from each “troll” all up into the interweb who has made her into the “victim“ she is.

Well, I think I am done stating my opinion on this woman. I also gave you a deconstructional view on her, to give you my opinions on her opinions and the tropes she represents. TAKE THAT Sarkeesian! I used your own dark powers against you.
