I've been told a hundred times by feminists that I am a feminist (I'm not) because I believe in the equality of genders. Man and woman, equal.peruvianskys said:Bingo! This is my response exactly - for a community that whines over and over about how retailers and developers won't listen to them, they sure do get upset when the same folks *start* listening...to the people they don't like.Zhukov said:OMG, IT'S CENSORSH...
No, hang on, it's a business responding to customer feedback and choosing not to sell a specific product that is still freely available to anyone who wishes to buy it.
"We are your customers, listen to our feedback! Hear our voices! Obey our comm... whoa, whoa, don't listen to those customers, they're feminazi SJW marxists!"
Heh. I love you all. I really do.
They aren't opposed to GTA 5 because they "find its content disagreeable" - they're opposed to GTA 5 because it allows you to murder prostituted women. That's not "puritanism". Puritans loved violence against women. This is a basic expression of feminism: We probably shouldn't turn violence against women into a hobby.rob_simple said:Almost as immature as, say, petitioning to have a game removed from sale at a store because you, personally, find its content disagreeable?
Nobody was forcing these idiots to buy a copy of GTA V, this is just a company bending to the will of some reactionary puritan dipshits because they cried the loudest but, as others have rightly said, it won't stop people buying it elsewhere so, hey, if Target don't wanna stock one of the best-selling games of all time then that is literally their loss.
How comes GTA is being pulled for its portrayal of women then? Is violence against men a hobby? I expect Target to be pulling CoD, Battlefield, Dragon Age, Skyrim, and any other number of games with violence against men and women in for equality's sake then.
Your argument is highly flawed when violence against women being a hobby is a problem but it's fine when it is against a man.
