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.

Computer Barbie can not make games without help from the guys. Can AndyAce83?

24 Nov

Bumfight

Let me tell you a story: AndyAce83 wants to make game. He has an idea. A beat-em-up game based on the trend of bumbfights. He will call the game Bum-Fight the game.

Since he is an avid image creator he creates a cover image for the game and then writes a text on 2 A4 pages about what the idea is about. Since he has played a lot of games of the genera he has also some ideas of what gameplay will be etc.

So when the idea has exited the first stage, he has a confession… He has no bearing on how to make video games. He can now read up on it (talk to you in about 5 years) or hire someone who has more understanding, knowledge and experience, than he. He chooses the latter option.

But the game will not be made because AndyAce83 sucks also in running a business… but atleast he tried.

End.

Now how about you create a beat-em-up game based on the idea to AndyAce83? Then send the game to him and say what gender you and your collaborators have. Write that you give AndyAce83 full right to develop and sell this without you getting something out of it.

Thanks 🙂

How to write an objective review (about games).

11 Nov

Sooo… Jim…quisition.

The fat, leftwing, game critique is at it again. Why do I watch his videos? Oh, yeah, cuz I like to hear others opinion to. That’s right. Oh, and also we have one thing in common. Passion for art (here; games).

Anyway he made a video where he ridiculed people who wanted a “objectivity in reviews“. His video wanted to point out how boring that kind of review would be, not acknowledging that objectivity doesn’t exclude opinion, it just demand honesty and humility to the facts.

Here the video is —->

So… I wanted to educate him on how to make an objective review.

Check your privilege.

A highly left wing phrase calledCheck your privilege” has been stated from many Social Justice Warriors, and has a clear condemning tone towards certain people. Although I sigh with contempt towards the phrase implications, there still is some truth to it. “Check your privilege” could also mean “know thy self” and that is a very important step towards objectivity. If it wasnt such a patronizing statment that says only certain groups should “check that”, no one would disagree with that.

To know oneself, where one has been, and how that has shaped oneself for good or bad most be the cornerstone before one starts to analyses anything. Know what one believes and why. To quote Wilde:

The highest as the lowest form of criticism is a mode of autobiography. Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. […] All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril. It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.

The road to self-insight is a lifelong travel and is not always a nice one but essential to objectivity. Cuz to remove oneself from the judgement means to know what to remove. One knows oneself by reflecting by themselves and reflecting in others. To think and talk with others, preferably not just ones peers.

Soo… Who am I?

AndyAce83 is a private person who still wants to express his opinions in public. His views has gone from left to right over 5-10 years but he has always been a irreligious Christian. Knowing this about myself let’s review a game.

A Review of Bioshock Infinite.

Official_cover_art_for_Bioshock_InfiniteI loved the first game (2007). It blew my mind. I loved the second one (2010), but my mind was unblown. I waited with great anticipation for the third game and my mind was blown, but still I don’t love Bioshock Infinite (2013).

Bioshock Infinite is about a man looking for a girl called Elisabeth in the flying city of Colombia. As the story progresses he has to make allies and enemies and experience betrayal throughout time and space.

The story and the setting of Colombia touches on many themes; Both theological, political and philosophical. Among them are extreme patriotism, Marxism, racism, fundamental Christianity and the chance that our universe may be just one of an infinite amount of others (thus probably the title).

The story is both complex and laughable banal at times and although it has some weak tie ins with the other Bioshock games it feels mostly like a separate story. The graphics has changed from the previous games as it’s more bright with higher focus on violent portrayals on more human enemies. This made the game less enjoyable to me and this is what I gather from other players of the game as well. The extreme focus and details on violence may be intentional though as the story also has a anti-violence message that may work for some, but I found it a bit preachy and out of place sometimes. This anti-violence message gets stronger and stronger throughout the DLCs as well until the final chapter where you can’t even kill anyone and the gameplay goes from action shooter to more stealth based.

The complex themes touched in this game seems to be dealt with in a neutral, almost apathetic fashion where no ideology or philosophy presented are the heroes. This neutral depiction makes the game seem abit directionless at times. If you want a game with a clear message I don’t think this is the game for you.

All in all I enjoyed the game and it’s DLCs but it is my third favorite Bioshock game. The graphics and style of the game is great. The city of Colombia feels like a real city in the sky and the events and characters in the game are facinating enough to keep you playing to the end. The gameplay is more or less like the previous games with weapons and “magical powers” to mix up the battles and keep it interesting. As I’ve said before, the violence in this game can be a bit disturbing at times and this did stump some of the action enjoyment of the game.

All in all I recommend this game for people who like first person action shooters with RPG elements who don’t mind abit of food for thought as well.

Why was this review objective?

Soo… what made this review objective? First off, I was humble. I used words like “probably“, “maybe” and “I think”. This differentiate what I know for a fact (which is very little) and what I think or believe (subjectivity).

I then don’t give too much focus and analysis towards the subject matter of the game (implied meaning) just how much the subject matter enhanced or reduced the games enjoyability for me as a player. I also use other people’s opinion as a reference in my review. A luxury that arguably isn’t so easy for critics of newer games but the point is that wether or not I use others as point of reference I at least try to think what other’s who isn’t like me, think of the game.

Blog 2.0 - The point is not to be 100% objective, is to not be a smug patronizing SJW.

#GamerGate and mainstream media in Norway.

25 Oct

Soooo…

I got some good news to all people of #GamerGate. Norwegian media has started to take offence by it. This means that you are getting influential and dangerous to feminism (read; Social Justice Warriors) and biased media coverage. Congratz.

One of the biggest Norwegian news papers wrote a highly biased coverage of #GamerGate. Not mentioning #NotYourShield and portraying the entire thing as “white young men” campaign against innocent female feminist.

The article “Kjønnskrig splitter dataspillverdenen” (“Genderwar divided computergameworld”) writes about the sad tale of Sarkeesian and how cruel people have been treating her.

At the same time “Gamergate: Sinte, unge menn” (“GamerGate: Angry, young men”) was published which is an opinion piece (like that other article wasnt 😉 ) which again beats the drum of how evil #GamerGate people is and that its just angry young men who care about biased media coverage of games.

The good news is that Norwegian media is covering it. That means that GamerGate is getting big. We wouldnt have heard of it if not.
