how about the so called "other feminist activist" start being the first ones to purge this type of cancerous ideas and people propagating them from their core instead of complaining when others do it in their stead?

fucking tired of these whiners trying to dictate how artists are or aren't allowed to express themselves

and this is coming from an actual progressive who believes in the strive for equality of opportunity for all

Problem is that our medias make it so that only a vocal minority gets heard, be it for the worst or the best.

Anywoo, when I meant other feminist activist, I meant other feminist who doesn't fall into the same category. By example, you can't categorize an ecologist-feminist in the same group as  muslim feminist since their ideology they identify to is still different. Talking about diversity of tactics in a same arrangement.

So, asking a black feminist to go and stop this cancerous mess of white/western feminism wouldn't bold well with their ideology.

I don't even understand using that stupid meaningless lable when aparently it can't be used to group anyone. All the sjws are apparently outliers unaware they aren't the "true feminists".

 

It's that darn media that only gives a soapbox to these squeeky wheels... well if you ask me they are the popular ones among that movement, so if anythig they are the real representatives of what feminism is.

 

So rather asking people not to judge other feminists by the actions and worda of these sjw types, i would recommend dropping the lable and focus on arguing for whatever ideals any given person has.

 

It's just me venting here, i'm not directing this out at you as I have no idea if you were just playing devil's advocate here



I was right to avoid this game.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Polygon is a toxic SJW platform. Ignore the existence of this shit.

Suck With Joy. Isn’t that obvious?



For a thread about toxicity, this thread sure is toxic. I'm not defending Polygon here or anything, but man...

Yeah, exactly. It's ironic. And man ... how the fuck are you guys so interested in this shit? I get if it's like, a video game or something, but who is so interested in a website they dislike that they just make a thread to circlejerk it? 



Not reading it. Polygon need to die. Don't care eithee tbh. There opinions are shit and only sheltered fools and chlidern are naive enough to take their nonsense seriously.



 

Polygon is trash, but I see little in this article to really get upset about. Yeah, people have that knee-jerk reaction to the phrase "toxic masculinity", but if you get past the buzzwords you don't like, there really isn't much being said that is all that controversial. The interviewer could have phrased the question differently to avoid such highly divisive phrases, but it really wouldn't change much of anything about what is being said, and what is being said is a kind of interesting look at how and why Kratos was reimagined and evolved through this immensely popular game.

I don't know, maybe I'm just tired of "outrage culture" and have a hard time getting upset about things that really don't matter.
