yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy
Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.
Fun fact: Obama doesn’t make laws, Congress does.
This belongs here:
THE WAGE GAP IS NOT AN ISSUE! I will repeat that. THE WAGE GAP IS NOT AN ISSUE!
In the United States, it is against the law for a man who works the same hours as a woman, in the same office and position as a woman to earn more then her. This is known as gender discrimination, and businesses will be shut down for such an act.
This law has been in place since the 1960’s for the United States, and in the 1980’s in Australia. I would love to know the general dates for other parts of the world where this law is in effect.
HOWEVER! People are saying men make more then women because there are men who take up FAR more life risking jobs, such as sky high construction, under ground mining, and such, where they would end up MAKING more money. These jobs are not gender specific, as women are welcome to risk their own health and lives to work in such unstable environments to make just as much as their fellow man. So, no. The pay wage gap between a man and a woman is not there in the same field *AKA call center work* with the same position *AKA Entry Level* and the same hours worked a week *AKA 40 hours* but the paying gap is being used to state that men make more money *Compared between a fast food attendant and a coal miner* then women and thus classifying it as a wage gap.
The wage gap argument is literally the argument between apples and bananas. You cannot compare the two in their function, and you cannot sit there and say that apples get more then bananas because of logic. That’s not logic, it’s not something that makes sense in debates, but rather to sit there and say to everyone the apple is an apple, and the banana is an apple, but is not as big as an apple because of logic. It does not work that way!
TLDR: Good for Obama to fight on the same sex adoptions. Bad to fight something that does not exist unless you’re into the whole communist states thing.
So Anita Sarkeesian is planning on doing a “review” of the upcoming Alien: Isolation game, and she’s also preparing herself to do so by watching the original 1979 classic, Alien? Apparently she plans on doing so according to a post which I have seen and I have to say.. THIS should be interesting.
Alien has one of the biggest feminist icons and action heroines, Ellen Ripley, who had helped pioneer and pave the way for many heroines which came along the last thirty or so years. So I am mildly curious to know how Anita Sarkeesian will be evaluating this particular game and franchise. Will she be praising the franchise for having a female main lead and hero who isn’t at all sexualized, or will she find something to complain about?
Let me say that I really don’t care about the ruckus which Anita Sarkeesian has buzzing around her, the controversy of this woman.. I don’t care about. I also really have nothing negative to say about her because I don’t know this woman. However, I am interested in her views on the Alien franchise as that happened to be one of the franchises I happened to grow up with.
Alien vs. Sarkeesian.. Whoever Wins.. We Lose.
Looks like I’ll have to come up with a counter argument against Anita Sarcasm.
The hypocrite don’t deserve to be called a pop-critique if all she does is spread nothing by feminist lies and slanders. However, I think there was an argument already made about how she explains about the Alien ship looking like female legs and vagina, which is not true, and thus it’s about men trying to escape the domestic dominance that women now possess.
For Art of Fighting, I suggest looking for a NEO GEO Emulator and the ROM. Art of Fighting and Art of Fighting 2 are two SNK games which you might want to look at.. Infact, you might even want to challenge Anita with looking into these games. One of the characters is a woman who was at a conflict with her own gender named King, and she dresses up as a man to hide her secret of being a woman but later on embraces her femininity in later games.
Like I said, I’ll definantly look into both AoF games.
And I’m aware of the SNK fighting games. All fighting games actually. Don’t forget that I’m an MK fan through and through.
But I still wish to challenge Anita point by point in her arguments, counter arguing against her. She does not deserve the title Game Development Ambassador Avatar. I would rather that someone who appreciates games just for being games and not degrade them into misogynistic slanders and lies. Blatantly over looking the core part of a game.
She picked apart Double Dragon?! Okay.. sure the opening segment of the game has the female character actually getting beaten and then kidnapped but that's actually a plot element in the game that has a context to it. The same thing can be said about the Super Mario Brother games. As for Art of Fighting, I can send you a longplay of the game so you can pick it apart to see if it is misogynistic or not.
I’d rather play the game myself without added commentary while making my own evaluation.
I should make this a serious thing.
Send her a game, she picks it apart about it being misogynist.
Send me the same game she’s picked apart, and I can make counter arguments point by point for her review with my own feed.
