Feminism is right, but so is Jontron

Once again, I’d like to ask the question:
When did people stop playing video games for entertainment and start taking them so seriously?

In the so called ‘war’ between social justice and video games, isn’t there a middle ground?

We know the benefits of feminism and equality in society can be applied to video games but there’s nothing dictating that you have to look for the inequalities whilst playing a game. 

Let’s talk about opinions too:

If I have an opinion that feminism isn’t helpful to society, you might not necessarily agree with it but you can respect that I hold that opinion if I explain it with logic. The opposite also holds weight, I’m able to defend feminism to gamers because I say that it’s promoting a more equal playing field that more gamers can enjoy. At the end of the day, companies want a profit and the more men and women they can get to play video games, the better it is. Making games suitable for both genders, yet not so that they are gender specific (deviousvaccum’s Girl Games LP is a fantastic example of this) is the way to go.

Jontron’s argument is flawed, but not for the reasons people say they are flawed. Taking him on the value of his tweets alone, he knows that the type of violence and poor treatment of women are only examples of why females have not received great treatment both from gamers and games themselves. I genuinely believe he isn’t out to denounce feminism, he wants a discussion on the feminist critique of video games.

In the course of writing this post, there were several tweets that sort of illustrated the point that I was trying to make: It’s very easy to get caught up in the general arguement of feminism in video games when the real arguement should surround the quality of the video games themselves. If you don’t like games where women are treated like objects, you should denounce games like that and tell people not to buy them. This goes for both men and women.

I had forgotten how fun it could be to be in Wynyard on weekday mornings…  So apparently it’s “Tree day” today… Hahaha

Can we just take the time to appreciate the cool things that happen at Australian train stations? You never hear about this kinda stuff!

A personal post

I like to warn people before they read these kinds of things that the content below is entirely personal to me and may not be the most enjoyable thing to read.

Hank Green just had to defend himself eating meat to his fans, with claims that people are ‘disappointed’ and ‘questioning his logic’.

I don’t get how we can say ‘it’s your own body and do what you want’ whilst also saying ‘You can’t eat meat because of various reasons’. I’m not debating the positives and negatives of eating meat, I’m pointing out why social justice warriors are ruining Tumblr. You can’t do anything without someone getting upset about it!

Hey remember when video games were about having fun and going on an adventure? SJW’s and Misandrists don’t!
