GamingThread Motherboard: ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Players Are Excited to Attack and Kill Feminists in the Game
Reason User warned: dismissing concerns, false equivalences and personal attacks
There is no need to "defend gamers" because gamers are not a homogenous group of like-minded people. Attack those who are responsible, not bundles of people. Attack bigots, racists, male chauvinists - no one should defend them. But don't attack entire groups that these people happen to be a part of. It's like.... like attacking "car owners" because of drunk drivers - sorry for the same analogy as before, but you get what I'm trying to say. You can't possibly know what I care for more or less. Also, I don’t equate gaming with misogyny because gaming is so many things and this is my argument here. I am firmly against misogyny - and you're trying put words in my mouth. I have serious issues with people projecting bad things on entire groups. That is called prejudice, and I have experienced it a lot in my life. My whole life I stood firmly for peace, inclusion and tolerance, and yet - I was often called out just because of my nationality when traveling abroad (asked questions like: "so, have you ever carried a gun?" .... "so, do you hate that nationality?" etc). So yes, I am strongly against prejudice, I know it when I see it and it is dangerous. Nothing gives you the right - no holy cause or righteous motive - to make blanket statements about a whole group of people. You are prejudiced.
