So you think somehow the gangs of LA are going to magically protect you from someone driving a garbage truck full of explosives into your neighbourhood or from a stranger walking up to you hacking at your head with a machete?

The OP was probably referring to LAPD. But your point still stands, admittedly.

Basically as you said in the initial post, the driver developers constantly need to write special cases for various games so that they work correctly and users don't whine on their forums.

That's a ridiculous argument you're making. Just because women have it bad at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder (unlike men??), doesn't mean it doesn't suck for them in STEM when compared to men, which is the test you should be making. I suspect this has partially something to do with opinions like yours.
