Pardon me, but I am fucking LIVID and want to vent. This is perhaps the most rage-inducing article I have ever read, and it has finally urged me to stop reading Kotaku, which I should have done forever ago.

Check it out if you want to give them what they want.

Basically it's a gif of a girl walking by in tight short shorts, then a man turning around as he walks by her to check out her ass. The article then says this is what it "feels like" to be a woman at E3.

Now... I don't know where to start here, and I am sure some defenders will come out of the woodwork and say it's creepy and sexist and stuff too. Obviously you people exist, or else this article would not be written. Let me just lay down what I feel are two simple universal truths, and hopefully that gets the ball rolling on some good discussion:

1) You cannot change human instinct.

2) Women do the same thing.
Restrain me, officer!

btw. again:

>reading opinion articles written by nonames

oh fuck, it's not even an article. It's a gif with summary. Oh boi, internet...

1.Agreed

2. OOOOH you have no idea how similar women are to men when it comes to these things, its simple, just go to Fanfcition or Deviantart or anything Yaoi related and you will see that girls ARE just as perverted as guys.
I agree with you completely. No one seems to think that people sneak looks at one another because of evolutionary programming to search for a suitable mate.

Deviantart doesn't count :D

But it's true. You know, almost every woman I know said something like that "C. Ronaldo has amazing body, especially his ass!"

I watch a lot of football and I couldn't even recall what kind of asses players have...
Question: Who the fuck is Jason Schreier and why would I care about any retarded crap that goes through his mind ?

You decided to stop now? I stopped taking those people seriously after a bunch of retarded stuff months ago.

Someone caught it on camera and decided to be an ass about it.

The better question is "how is this any different from when women do it?".

For all the grief that men get about this, you'd think that women weren't just as bad. Now, maybe that's just an anomaly of this particular region, but it's hard to take this sort of thing seriously when it's magically not harmful when women do it.

Then, you also have to realize that some people have issues with their brains that results in getting locked on to things without any intention to do it.

Pretty much. We assume that he was responding to the woman's presence. It could be any number of other things. I know that I'll spin around like that from time to time when I think I've forgotten something, or I think I hear my name being called.

From the looks of it, he's security, and there could be some other explanation to it.

Meh, it's Kotaku. Personally, I stopped reading them when they wrote that ridiculous piece about how the Razor Blade was going to be the saviour of PC gaming.

There's no doubt that sexism - as well as many of the other "-isms" - is an issue within gaming culture. But there are positive ways to have these conversations that don't resort to inane finger pointing or petty bickering. And frankly, I'd trust any site within Gawker Media to be more interested in link-baiting and ad-revenue than to actually deal with any of these issues constructively.
Look-y no touch-y
oh fuck, I just skimmed through some comments

NEVER AGAIN.

Come on now, it's okay to link Kotaku when it's a decent article, but not this rubbish.
