Belittling you makes me part of what problem? Sexism? Are you saying that my motivations for calling you out were driven solely by my sexist nature? Are you trying to imply that my overtly-NON-sexist post was really secretively sexist behind the scenes?

Since, you know, implying that is sexist on YOUR part.

Give it a rest already. You came in this thread guns-a-blazing, just like the last thread. I have tried to steer this thread in a productive direction multiple times now, but people like you continue to drag it back to accusatory remarks and nothing but arguing, which I'm done with by the way. I've just barely resisted clicking that handy "block" button more than a few times now.

Also, I'd like to point out that my "belittling" is quite literally exactly the same thing that your first real post in this thread was, and your other posts have continued to be, and yet I'm contributing far less? Methinks not, pal.

Belittling what I'm SAYING, not me personall. What MANY people are saying in this thread. Your dismissive posts are utterly useless.

Learn the difference between belittling and disproving. I provided a compelling (I would like to think so, anyway) photo as evidence to the contrary of what the misogynists are saying. So, yeah. That one picture was a bigger contribution than all of your posts in both threads so far. thumb.gif

It means you aren't "real gamers".

Or if you owned an atari and had those simple games does that make you less of a gamer because the games weren't demanding enough or graphically advanced enough for some kid?

Having played on the Atari, those games definitely don't make you a "real gamer".

There are even arguments that I've seen here that someone isn't hardcore because they don't PC game or game online. Completely ignoring the fact that some people that game are younger or broke college students/graduates and may not have the means to have more than one gaming platform to choose from.

It doesn't matter what the platform is, it's the type of games. It doesn't matter if you're young or broke or whatever... that doesn't make you play different games. I can't say I'm a ferrari driver if I'm too poor to own one, but would if I wasn't.

Really the problem is that the term "real gamer" is derogatory to the casual gamers. Farmville and Atari games are definitely more "casual" then Arma... it's not a bad thing that some people don't play the more hardcore games, but it doesn't make much sense to lump both groups into the category of "gamer."

Spoken like a true person-that-hasn't-read-most-of-what-I've-posted, but whatever, I'm well aware you cherry-pick the posts you read/respond to.

Also, from everything I've seen of you in both of these threads so far, the "difference between belittling and disproving" seems to be whether your fingers are the ones typing or not.

You did not provide a compelling photo. You provided a cherry-picked photo (and situation) and accompanied it with a snarky, passive-aggressive diatribe about how people who doubt the practical validity behind the 50/50 statistic couldn't be more wrong (while calling them neanderthals, etc). Which, again, is the same thing you were doing in the other thread when it got locked.

While you may have some good points hidden away in your posts, you are quite abrasive with how you go about things. I mean come on, you got on someone's case for like 4 posts and multiple pages for saying that they didn't think that woman's hair looked very nice.

Are you in these threads arguing just for the sake of arguing or something?

I got on someones case for doing something that he has no right to do. It's not his goddamn business. It is not acceptable to track down a picture of an OCN member, boot up a paint app, and drop arrows and what you deem to be 'ugly' or 'not nice'. And then post it back on OCN. It is unacceptable behaviour.

No, but that is most definitely what you are doing... because unless I am mistaken, you actually share the same viewpoint as me, that there are far more female gamers out there these days. So, stop hitting yourself.

Dude are you for real? THEY PLAY VIDEOGAMES REGULARLY! THEREFORE THEY ARE 'GAMERS'. END OF!

So, 'avid readers' can only be regarded as 'avid readers' if they read non-fiction, and cannot be considered 'avid readers' if they only read fantasy? Cause that is an exact comparison right there.

(Unless I'm completely failing to read into some very well hidden sarcasm there...)

No, but that is most definitely what you are doing... because unless I am mistaken, you actually share the same viewpoint as me, that there are far more female gamers out there these days. So, stop hitting yourself.

Uhhhh once again, just a champion job jumping to assumptions there. She's from a popular YouTube channel, dude. She would not ever see that post, and would also probably not even care. Who gives a crap if some random person dislikes (not even that strong a dislike) some completely unimportant physical attribute about you? Is your self esteem really that fragile? I doubt hers is.

Actually I do share the same viewpoint as you about women gamers, but I'm ashamed to be on the same side as you because you have such a violent knee-jerk reaction screaming "sexism! SEXISM! Neanderthals! CAVEMEN!" that I'm surprised you haven't had to have multiple reconstruction surgeries by now.

I'm not hitting myself. If anything, I'm trying to get you to calm the hell down so you stop getting OTHER people riled up, and we can finally (finallyfinallyfinallyfinally) have a discussion about this. Seeing as how, you know, that's literally the only reason for these forums to exist.

But enough. I'm sick of banging my head against your wall. You have clearly proven that arguing with you is worse than useless, so welcome to my block list. I wish I could say it's an exclusive club, but more and more people seem to be deserving of a membership recently. rolleyes.gif
