Most artists are sensitive.
This is like saying "Most fish live in water", it's so near-universal it doesn't even really need to be said.

Problem is, the internet has been developed into a tool for focusing hate and that is entirely counter to any artist's desire to put their work in the path of that hate-laser.

The risk for artists has become very high and the rewards very limited. You can see how this effects people who share their work as directors and game developers are harassed off twitter, doxxed and threatened. The Internet has made a sport of uncreative people verbally destroying creative people.

This is not the environment to foster great art instead you will only get safe mediocrity.

Two comments.
1) The Legend of Zelda on NES
2) See the MovieBob review of Pixels. It's VERY worth your time.

Here's what +Innuendo Studios misses in his analysis when talking about the "perfect reality bubble". Some of us grew up dirt poor in black neighborhoods and saw the world as a pretty unfair place from the beginning. Some of us grew up to be activists. Some of us took on the mantle of gender and race and class activists from an early age because we were fully aware of the inequalities and wanted to change them.

And then some of us saw white, upper middle class concern-trolls assert themselves and their gender studies 101 theories and begin bending any kind of social justice movements to their own vapid and irrational ends. We saw Feminism become about "Manspreading" and "Teach boys not to rape" instead of equal access.

Many of us fully understand there is nothing perfect about the world and want to solve real problems but we saw the rise of the "Social Justice Warriors" come and undercut those real movements and turn them into parody and idiocy. So when we get mad at someone like Sarkeesian (And I'm using her as a stand-in here for a lot of people like her) it's because she represents a dumbing down and misdirection of the conversation for her personal gain. She used social justice to become a professional victim and that is deeply frustrating and troubling to those of us who have earnestly worked for equality for years with little to no resources. Once those earnest, hard-working activists had built a platform, it was the SJWs who came and used that platform as a stage for a slapstick routine, alienating those who would genuinely like to see a move toward actual equality. She's just another example of "Feminism for rich white women" and that makes people angry.

+Geahk Burchill The minute you said Portland I tuned out. The problems you listed are not problems with this so called "modern feminism." All the things you just complained about are almost stereotypically common traits of hipsters. There is a difference between the two, and let's face facts. Complaining about feminism is a derailment of any attempt to address the real problems posed by hipsters.

Clicked on an Armored Media post and then panicked because I saw Mr Repzion's channel bar. I was like, "Oh fuck! I got tricked into watching a Mr Repzion video! FFFFuuuuuuuuu!"

What a relief when it turned out to be a guest post by TAS. (Dodged a bullet there! Whew!)

Steve is good at using logic and factual info to debate & question other people's religion but not so good at using facts and logic when defending his own.

UG! Why did you have to compare Araki to Snyder? That makes me like Araki considerably less. Snyder is a puddle-shallow hack who should be removed from the helm of anything beloved by anyone for he will certainly make it worse.

So what you are saying to me is that Araki is able to spin gold into poo.

I think Autopsy87 is missing some crucial experiential data. (Data I believe Glenn is also missing)

Anyone who has lived in a black neighborhood knows that cops are much more aggressive and punitive to black people in those neighborhoods than they are to white people in white neighborhoods. You don't have to even have a lot of experience with both to know this.

I'm a white guy who grew up in a black neighborhood and I will tell you, from my own experience there is a huge difference. When I was a trouble-making teen I saw my black friends get detained for things I got away with. It was like I was invisible to cops while they were magnets. I witnessed differences in treatments dozens and dozens of times. During my lifetime I have been stopped by cops maybe a dozen total times while I know black guys who are harassed by cops weekly. There is a difference and it's palpable and undeniable.

So yeah, Dylan Roof and Eric Garner aren't a perfect comparison but there is absolutely a meta comparison to be made that is everywhere. It is absolutely true that black people, nationwide, are treated differently by cops (Both black and white officers) Just the prison population is evidence of that as well as the experience of black men in America. (Women too to a lesser extent) Having dark skin in America is like wearing shark bait and it's not 'race-baiting' to talk about how that is a problem.

This was Alex trying hard to use his dad's time on the force to his advantage while writing a Cracked article--and then totally missing the mark and proving why The Wire IS actually a very accurate 'cop show.'

How many officers fired their service weapons on the show?
How many officers died in the line of duty on the show?
How many times were they prevented from solving a crime by budgets?
How many crimes did they actually solve, arrest, try and convict?

The Wire explored every one of Alex's complaints with cop shows.

I don't agree with the last statement, "When gamergate wins". The anti-gamergate side has a hell of a lot more political leverage.
