Oh, it lacks the only thing that makes slashdot interesting you mean?

Say what you like about slashdot but they've an excellent hands-off policy when it comes to discussions about whatever, that can be relied upon. The same can't be said for your "alternatives".

Please mod this and the parent post as offtopic, thanks.

It rewards psychopaths, results in shitty systems which punish the public and takes the creative principle for ransom.

Bwahaha you slackjawed imbecile, you realise you've just described the actual outcomes of everything marxist?

and budding psychopaths who hope that they can scramble their way up the mountain of bodies

For reals, over 100 million people would like a word. And they seem a bit pissed.

Possibly just maybe your polisci 101 lecturer wasn't giving you an honest education, dipshit.

Food for thought.

It is if they're willing to play it smart enough.

I mean you didn't think that computer you're typing on was so cheap because the manufacturers decided to give you a winning personality discount, did you?

Also I'd advise anyone whining about monopolies to take a good long look at the standard contracts existing publishers make authors sign, as we're on the subject.

What praytell is preventing them from starting their own Amazons? It's not like they're short of a few bucks. Although to be honest I expect the ultimate fallout from this conflict to be writers circumventing publishers entirely and just working with editors and artists directly.

I mean, face it, men are just more willing to be the trolls and make life miserable for each other. Women see that and avoid the whole issue altogether.

Turns out that's a steaming pile, who knew eh.

They simply see what happens as basically a bunch of horny teenagers with ragers going on, and simply steer clear to avoid the trouble.

Too bad you don't know any actual female gamers:

UFOs actually exist. Yes, they do. Not to say that they are aliens but there's a long and well documented history of flying objects we can't identify.

So how about we spend a few generations stamping out atttitudes like yours and then we can view the world as it really is.

Not technically she isn't. Her bachelors is in Communications, Masters in social and political thought... NOT gender studies. Now she has an interest in it, of course, which leads to her videos, but she is NOT the "Gender studies major" that some people claim she is.


Why re-invent the wheel?

Because if you don't it's copyright fraud. Seriously, look it up. People were pissed.

IMy sister has a double major Bachelors degree in Social work and English (writing)....she runs Ubuntu LTS.

Is your sister Anita Sarkeesian? This idiot doesn't even know what game she's playing half the time, never mind the finer points of distros, and I mean that literally. It's a common complaint among gamers regarding her "reviews".

>Just as an aside, on my bookshelf with my various Linux books, there are copies of "The Beauty Myth" and "Fire with Fire" by Naomi Wolf, Gender Outlaw by Kate Bornstein, and Whipping Girl by Julia Serano.

How embarrassing for you. I seriously have no idea how people can publicly call themselves feminists in this day and age, talk about a faux pas. Ugh. Let's not invite that one to the next party.

We can predict everything, except the future.
