Two outspoken feminists have left League of Legends developer Riot

The reality is, it's like art direction, it's ok to have half naked males muscle bound with an 8 pack in a game that shows a female with skimpy armor or clothes automatically becomes sexist and misrepresents the population of females, But the male portion of the game is perfectly fine.... I'm all for equality, just not calling sexism what you believe it to be versus what it actually is. This has infected gamer culture to the point of neurotic behaviour.

As for employment in the industry, if a female has the qualifications and does the work required an does it well, she deserves the job regardless that she may be a female, however companies should not go out of their way hiring people that have no qualifications to meet a gender equality quota, that is just disasterous and not healthy for the industry.

People have become sesitive babies in today's society and try proving a point to just prove a point because they believe they are right and everyone else is wrong.....those are the people that ruin things.

I made the point of Netflix's version of the Witcher going out of their way to cast a BAME as Circi, of course there is going to be backlash and it doesn't make a person racist by speaking up and saying that they want the show to be faithful to the books, and are asking for people to keep their SJW and political views out of ruining something for the actual fans of the series.

Danny101, your personal narrative is so far removed from what I've experienced that it simply seems to be fictional. If that's how the world has worked for you up to this point, then I'm sorry for you dude.

I'm concede it to be a bit of an over-exaggeration. Although it isn't all that far from what is happening, culturally speaking. Feminists by and large also come with their own over-exaggerated claims. Any woman I deal with, as soon she comes off with that feminist goop, I'm done and walking away. I'm not entertaining any further possibility to be misread. I've watched it happen to other people over over again and so I've learned the cautionary tale. I'm not alone in my sentiments. Feminists have taken what may been a defensive posture, which I do understand and no one should be mistreated, to the level of hostility and isn't helping for constructive dialog.

This is the same when they say "There aren't enough women in politics because men don't let them". But the reality is this:
You start talking about politics on a party, and 50% of men will join you and discuss with you (or most likely disagree with you) while 99% of women will leave. Because they hate politics. That's not men's fault.

“They just didn’t respect women.”

I don't believe this. I worked in many IT companies with a certain percent of women, and women were respected if they deserved it (just like men). If someone dislikes you, or if your presentation style sucks, you can't say that they disrespect all women. They may disrespect just you. Your colleague could have a much better presentation style and the idea got accepted. Don't be a crybaby about it.

Funniest thing is, men who like to virtue signal their feminism credentials are only doing it in the hope of getting laid more.
If you defend a friend or family member, is that because you want to shag them? Maybe I shouldn't ask...

Feminists are ugly and slutty women who are trying to change men into something attractive women are not attracted to. (And other crap...)
Guys, we found the Incel!

There's a lot of crap in this thread that's basically defending unfair practices. The same people will take the exact opposite position on issues of fairness when the issue at hand is anything other than feminism. It blows my mind that the people who think of themselves as being principled, educated, informed and just, suddenly can't keep their rage at bay when the topic is women.

My retired mother also playing game, the talking toms and angry birds. My wife plays candy crush in her opengl benchmark leading phone.

Well well, the first infographics says it all. Women are gamers. Woohoo. With top ranking games very much different compared to men's.

But if you really said candycrushers are true gamers, who am I to say they're not.

You might want to do some research....https://www.geekwire.com/2013/gaming-report-12-billion-people-playing-games-worldwide/
While there are more males playing games, 44% of gamers are female.... and that was 5 years ago! It gets closer to 50/50 every year...

It’s the ignorant, sexist folk who simply assume that gamers are mostly male :)

I guess you didn't see the 2016 election night parties for either side. Hillary's was quite homely. I was strucked by the contrast. Incel? Now that's laughable. I've had my opportunities. I quite frankly just don't give a damn anymore. Women are going to have to offer more than just sex to keep my attention, especially when they act with contempt in every other way. I'd rather be alone and content than paired up and miserable.

It suffices to say the more you have going for you the less inclined you are to force others to comply with your feelings. The exception being at the very extreme ends of the spectrum, where power and influence become the currency of preference.

Even attractive women are ruined in my eyes by their attitude. A less physically attractive but well-kept and mild manner woman will find more mates. It's all currency. My right-wing tendacies are more religious driven and we know how much the left-wing just loves that.

Another interesting aspect of this study is that it is also saying that successful people tend to be conservative and that unsuccessful people tend to be liberal or in my view, socialist. That kind of backs up the idea that socialists don't want people to be successful and independent. It's not politically advantageous to them. It also explains why the young tend to be more socialist and the old, more conservative. It also should be an incentive for Conservatives to back more education and skill training. Get people off the dole. I wouldn't consider myself a massive success and still working on it, but my failures are by and large due to my own missteps, not others.

But does being more attractive make you more intelligent? Or a better person? It’s not your political values that make you good looking - it’s your good looks that make you more conservative.... and certainly anyone who judges women solely by their looks must not be sexist....

Hmm. Interesting comment from someone who uses a loaded term like "SJW". A word I have only ever seen online and within male dominated online communities at that.

From my perspective it is you who is trying to bring politics into this.....everyone I talk to in the real world agrees women should be treated fairly at work. This seems to apply in most places I have lived.

Have you seriously thought about it and considered that you may be wrong and part of the problem? Have you discussed this in the real world with people who disagree with you or are you simply copy and pasting online put downs because it fits the beliefs of the online forums you frequent and the presumably conservative group of friends you have?
Oh god. These comments are horrible and show the type of culture women are fighting against constantly.
I really wish Techspot had a "dislike button", so I could voice my opinion against the constantly preachy, left wing, SJW sh!t storm being incessantly posted.

Trying to withstand the overwhelmingly judgmental tome self righteousness is sort of like asking, "what would you do if got caught in a blizzard, when snowflakes suddenly turned brown, and the winds changed to methane"?.

"Two Outspoken Feminists have left "League of Legends" Developer Riot"

Misogynistic Musings & sarcasm coming right up...,. :rolleyes:.

It has been subsequently reported that the two developers have rented a shared apartment in San Francisco. Also rumored is the fact their severance package included an undisclosed amount of cash, and a lifetime supply of D batteries.

These aren't rules. They are tendacies. There's also a happiness factor. Unhappy people tend to let themselves go. Intelligence is much more tied to priority. A good looking person who is vain tend to be unintelligent because they're too busy being vain. I've seen attractive people turn ugly and I've seen ugly people turn attractive. The common denominator is what is going on inside of that person. The physical level of attraction is just an indicator and manifestation of the unseen.
Unattractive people may be unhappy because they're unattractive or are unattractive because they're unhappy, but the two often go hand-in-hand. Attractive people who are arrogant and vain will eventually lose it.

Have you ever heard of a "Two Bag Girl"?

That's a girl which when you're out on a "play date" with her, you have to put a bag over your head, in case the bag over her head falls off.

The moral of the story is, nobody gives out IQ tests in the backseat of a Chevy.

This year's Miss America Pageant, with it's no swimsuit and no evening gown competitions, is emblematic of the inexorable decline to mediocrity, both the equal rights establishment, and women's "rights movements have precipitated. Next year, it'll be sack cloth and ashes for attire., and 100 pounds overweight before you're considered as a contestant.

In America's inner cities, evidence of the food stamp program's success is in full bloom, so to speak. Women's sizes 20 to 24 are the humble starting point for teenage women after their first illegitimate child. They don't look for jobs, because they might be "scriminated" against.

A lot of human beauty is indeed, genetic good luck. But women also have to be mindful of hitting the gym, the same as many of their male counterparts, instead of blaming their misfortunes on men alone.

The "Me Too" movement is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American public.

So, 50 years ago a young actress with absolutely nothing going for her but a nice a**, had to lay down for a movie producer, to earn the few hundred thousand dollar part she was given for doing so. Fast forward to today, when she's screaming how she's been "victimized", from her multi-million dollar home on the Pacific Coast Highway.

And y'all just nod your heads in sympathy, while you absorb the propaganda, the same way you suck up the dogma and doggerel in the Bible. Which after all, is the same horse sh!t peddled by your friendly neighborhood pedophile priest.

"Father forgive me for I have sinned, it has been 69+ years and I've never made a confession". (Thinks to himself, "screw it, I"m not about to start now either", and walks away).

Hmm, didn't read my previous posts? If you take my politics from who I vote for, I am right bang in the centre, about where I consider myself to be actually.

If you don't like dealing with opinions other than your own I believe there are far right Reddits where you can avoid the 'preachy' 'SJW' opinions that so many people (a large majority perhaps?) seem to have.

But don't you really mean that your opinion is the one I should I should abide by?

That said, I'm gonna stick right here by your side, so I'll know what I should be thinking....(y) (Y)

But FWIW, I'm all for equal opportunity in hiring. Which is why I think they should grab a few of those mouthy biddies from the Hollywood red carpets, strip them of those Givency gowns, give them coveralls, then place them in jobs that involve picking up trash, or running a jackhammer. We can't let those greedy men keep all the best occupations for themselves, now can we?

How am I doin'? Am I an official SJW yet?
