I'm tired of hearing this "companies exist only to maximize profits" garbage. Companies are controlled by people. People do not exist to maximize how much money they can make, therefore they are free to choose to control a company in a way such that it does something less profitable but more moral. There's never any proof that it's why companies exist anyway. It's just an 'edgy' way to look at society ('companies don't care about you, they only want profits'), but where is the proof that companies must maximize profits at all costs? It's just always asserted without any evidence or reasoning. It is a net loss to society if all companies exploited loopholes and so forth.

Why is it, when faced with stories like this, is your first instinct to claim that the woman lied or made it up?

Because that woman's name is Anita Sarkeesian. And fwiw I don't think she made it up but I do realize that she THRIVES off conflict like this. She WANTS this shit to happen to her to justify her bullshit. She creates unrest then profits off the conflict.

Iti s not because a woman wrote it, its because SARKEESIAN wrote it. FYI she's a fucking professional flamebaiter. She riles people up by creating the most offensive and inflammtry, and MISLEADING videos then cries to the press "help, people are being mean to me". She asked for it and she got it. She WANTS this publicity because it further helps her continue this cycle of bullshit. Do your homework on her before being a SJW (ending your 'people be being mean to her because she woman' ) and you will quickly understand the hatred for her.

What a great argument. Something going potentially wrong is a great reason to ban that thing outright. That's why they banned six year olds from walking around - they could potentially fall down and serverely harm themselves in the process. LEARN WHEN PRINCIPLES MATTER. You need statistics. Not principles to win your argument.
