it's a bit different to crack such a joke on international women's day, which is all about respect for women - it means he has none

No, it means he made a joke.  One that I heard 50 other people make on that day.  Many of which also made jokes at guys' expense on the same day.  PC is out of control.

only an immature brat can't hold back their sexist jokes for the duration of one special day to atleast keep the appearance of an inkling of respect

The true punchline to the joke that got so many people crying on social media? Colin ends up with 4500 Patrons and $30k per month less than 24 hours after launching his project.

says alot about the state of the gaming community - now plz don't wonder why there are hardly any females on any of these sites

People can support whatever they want and boycott whatever they want.  But when they actively try and ruin people because they hold a different opinion or make a simple joke are ridiculous.  If conservatives start responding in kind  (Target?) this country is going to get really, really messy.

Probably not going to watch an hour and a half documentary...summary?

Not if they can organize a successful strike.

They have to get all other women on board if that goal is to be met, but #ADayWithoutWomen was not supported by all women.

They don't have to get all women on board, they just have to get enough for it to do damage. It's not like every black supported the civil rights movement, either.

Yeah, I bet nobody has ever made a joke at the expense of a dad on father's day.  Seriously, it's a freaking joke.

McCarthy ruined many people's lives by using red-baiting tactics.

Well, it's been 54 years since the Equal Pay Act. What's taking them so long?

30,000 dollars a month for a gaming journalist to talk about politics and history? My god i am jealous.

The guy has a history degree from Northwestern. He doesn't have a journalism degree. He doesn't have any formal training in media or writing. Video games was always a hobby for him. He created extensive FAQs that got him noticed by IGN, and got him an internshiop that helped pay for college. It turned into a lucrative career that he couldn't turn down. His passion has always been history and politics.

I'm not sure I see the connection?  Are you saying what I said has no basis in fact?  Which, no, just my opinion.

There wasn't a complete redistribution of wealth after that, so the people that were poorly affected by centuries of discrimination didn't suddenly gain equal status.
