I'm moving to a new account

This is long overdue and therefore a quite painful process. But this account was created when Gmail was still in pre-beta and I was much younger. I want a better username and a better way to handle my Google things.

Thus, I shall henceforth be known as +Johan Winqvist.

The wonderful Anita #Sarkeesian  has made another brilliant video with an analysis of gender in video games. In particular I recommend watching all the way to the end of this one as she takes time to address WHY we need to listen.

Fallout and Oblivion (and probably Skyrim) are two sandbox games where you seem (my experience) to meet as many female as male enemies.

This do not negate the amount of games with game mechanics like only female prostitutes that gives bonuses or just obvious "eye candy".

But it does lessen the impact of what is said when it feels like a lie. "If that example video is clearly wrong, what else is?"

Still, her point is valid. To many games uses the old, shitty view of women.

I need feminism because as a man I can never truly be who I want if I am defined by my gender. I want to be bele to be weak, emotional, caring and all the other things that are supposedly female traits. And so many women around me are strong, intelligent and powerful that it's horrible to see when all they get to hear are comments on how pretty they may or may not be.

People are not ignorant by default - well, I suppose a baby is a carte blanche, but every child is born with a natural curiosity that needs to be supported and to an extent guided. If we lose the subtle prerequisites of learning we end up with ignorant, scared grown-ups that have long lost their empathetic capacity and urge to learn more about what lies around the corner. Learning in all its meanings is the only way forward and basically necessary, but not an easy path to go.

I will always share these important and insightful videos about issues in many video games.

There is a difference between Google and Google Scholar. The later is a research tool that gather peer-reviewed scientific articles only. Not just any old video person on the internet upset that his favourite game can have some questionable aspects to it.
Until you're caught up on the research, would you kindly shut the fuck up you self-entitled idiot.

As or taking a week – I have better things to do with my life than argue with people who don't know what they're talking about.

Your best claim at men's rights lacking would be that that women have all the power in deciding whether to children or not. Except the father in question decided to provide sperm, so that's a choice. And I'm all for an equal opportunity to decide if you want to have a child or not, but a woman has full right to decide if she wants to be pregnant or not. The day you can do that part, you have a case.

This is a fantastic and charming game.

Fantastic images... In more than one sense of the word.
Tons of photographers use Photoshop to insert new elements into their photographs, but not all of them can create the crazy and mind-bending images that Buenos Aires-based art director and digital artist Martin De Pasquale does. De Pasquale creates wild new impossible realities by combining multiple images or by creating new effects on Photoshop.

In Sweden we handle very, very few things through legal claims by one or more individuals against an organisation. Instead the government acts as intermediary. In the particular case of medical malpractice this means that any citizen can file a complaint that will be investigated by the government. If they find the complaint valid the doctor in question might be fined, lose their license or receive a warning. The person filing the complaint would never receive more money than they lost due to the malpractice and often nothing. Because everyone involved see the system as a way to make healthcare better, not as a way to get revenge or make gains.

+Walker Lewis While this is true, the system has its flaws.  One of them is abuse.  It's easier to diagnose physical impairment, but not so much mental/emotional impairment, epsecially trauma.  Not only that, but then you have to somehow quantify it monetarily, which I think is a bit meh...

It's a dangerous push-and-pull, and the argument could be made either way.  For those deeply affected, though, I will say this; No amount of money can fix it sometimes.  As a result, the system fails for those it truly desires to help.

If you're to spend time in Lund, visiting the cathedral is a must. The less local you are, the more I recommend the guided tours.
