We'll agree to disagree on the severity of women's perception compared to men. I think the problem as it exists is equally troublesome for both sides (it is not an actual problem for me, but for the sake of argument...). What it comes down to is both men and women are presented in a highly idealized (according to society) fashion. You may say that the problem is bigger for women then men, but I personally don't agree.

Oh for fuck's sake, this stupid argument again? When was the last time you saw a guy in a action game that wasn't ripped? Look at characters like Dante in Devil May Cry. You don't see men getting all butthurt because the common perception of men in video games is pure alpha male, muscle bound. Perhaps you have some internalized male-hate, or maybe it's disdain for 'geeks'. Either way, you need a better argument.

This is kind of the same feeling I've always gone with. I think the vast number of names can get a little excessive, but I guess if the LGBTQ community needs that level of granularity in how they define themselves, might as well go with it. How other people decide to live their life, as long as it doesn't impact mine adversely, is their own business - as is what they call themselves.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
