Licurg: Question: Who the fuck is Jason Schreier and why would I care about any retarded crap that goes through his mind ?
He's another useless guy at Kotaku, he also made a whole controversy out of the artwork of one video game (Dragon's Crown). Here's his response to the criticism he got http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=55356520&postcount=1633.

I'm fully aware, but usually it's just funny stupidity. This time it's literally making me rage.

I deleted the bookmark, I am done. Tweeted the editor why, not that he'll care. It's the final straw dammit!
this one of the articles i kinda would like to respond to..but nvm. nothing good would come of it.

Elmofongo: 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.

keeveek: 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...
No offense to Gay guys, but I just find it annoying everytime I tried to find a good M-rated stories of my favorite games, cartoons, anime, etc. only to find a flood of Yaoi stories that I stopped reading fanfiction constantly, come on writers drop your erotic fantasies and make a good story :P

Didn't you know? The best pick up line is "I white knight for women on my video game website" at bars these days. They can't keep the ladies off them for doing that.

Edit: Before I get downrepped to hell, I'm only joking. Stuff like this is pointless bitching which you can expect from Kotaku.

Let me throw another angle into this. How do hetero guys feel when other guys check them out? How do you feel if another guy is subtly sneaking a peek? What if they're blatantly staring at your crotch with their mouth open? How do you feel if another guy whistles at you, winks at you, or basically does any of the millions of things straight guys do to women?

Have you ever gotten angry or had an emotional reaction? Ever yelled at the guy or threatened them? Ever been physically violent towards a guy for hitting on you? Do you see any discrepancy between how justified/normal you feel in ogling women and how inappropriate/wrong you feel with men ogling you?

I'm not focusing on the responses, just wondering how far you've gone to see things from someone else's perspective and how much you care about double standards.
Further evidence that most of the gaming industry and all of gaming 'journalism' needs to die so something better can replace it.

I actually agree that character design was a little embarrassing. My problem is more with his assertion we can't have games made for men, or indeed media products made for me. That's ridiculous.

My IQ fell by about 15 points reading that...
Who even does a full turn like that? It's pretty likely that someone just called out to him.

Flattered. Ambivalent. Depends. I am not upset, if that's what you're asking.

Even if I was, that gets into homosexual acceptance politics and other shit. I get the point you would try to make there, but I think it's largely a strawman.

I know you said that you're not focusing on responses, but respond I will anyway. I am an introvert and ridiculously bad at reading people, so I wouldn't whether or not I was being hit on without it being explicitly stated to me, but I'm pretty sure a gay fellow tried to hit on me once. I thanked him for complimenting my appearance and politely dismissed his request to go dancing with him. I honestly didn't think or feel much of the situation; he didn't light my fire though I hardly felt offended by his interest, either.

Also, one of my best friends is gay or bisexual (I don't care which, none of my business). Doesn't prevent me from going to sauna (bollock-naked, since we're Finns) with him or his boyfriend; it's not like their sexuality automatically makes them unusually keen to be intimate with members of the same sex.

EDIT: I should probably point out that I have absolutely no idea if people generally perceive me as attractive - they sure as fuck aren't in a hurry to tell me what they think. Rest assured that I wouldn't go to sauna with people I know to be gay/bi if the thought of them catching an occasional glance of my arse made me uncomfortable.

StingingVelvet: 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.
I am feeling really dumb now, and don't understand exactly why you were upset. Is it because it is wrong to say that to look at women in short shorts is sexist?
