You thought a paragraph with no obvious connotations of sarcasm would be seen as obviously sarcastic? Uh huh.

Please let's not taint another source of enjoyment for me by mentioning Gamergate. A bunch of sexist A-holes hiding behind "Journalistic Integrity" to make death and rape threats against women in gaming development. All the crap that Quinn was accused of was proven to be false ages ago, and is only believed by ignoramuses. And who cares if she was sleeping around? I don't see how her love life affects anyone else, other than jealousy that she was actually having sex with real people.

If they wanted to go after journalistic integrity, why not go after the review sites that get paid by publishers to advertise their games while also reviewing it, which is a conflict of interest. Or the fact that publishers have been found to offer bribes to the reviewers for positive reviews, but those are guys, so it's ok.

Gamergate is a black mark on the history of gaming. It set the legitimacy of the industry back decades after so many people fought to make it an acceptable hobby, and remove the stigma that only nerds and losers play games.



And thats why you are one of them SJW. Sure call it whatever you want because you will disagree any ways.

"make death and rape threats against women in gaming development" Like tho's fake ones?

"ll the crap that Quinn was accused of was proven to be false ages ago" By who? The media sites? Gawker? Quin?

"don't see how her love life affects anyone else".. But it did.. dont you see the problem>?

"why not go after the review sites that get paid by publishers to advertise their games while also reviewing it, which is a conflict of interest." They do, and its totally not an conflict of interests. Why do you think youtubers have been pushing the " clearly stating sponsors" shit lately?
However, you are forgetting a couple points, specially related to gawker. Authors not even related to games but do with the SJW community's write game reviews and false press to shell out a game and praise another game. A mild objectification isnt even there.
Its the equivalent of a car guy( that's totally not into anime ) reviewing an anime and writing an article about it and insulting the viewers.

Saying that gamer gate is a black mark for the gaming industry clearly shows you dont know any thing. Or do you find it acceptable that you get shit on and be insulted and be treat as a consumer pig because you are not important? I bet you do.

That stigma you wanted to be gone is what is heavily being pushed by the SJW/anti-gamergate + that now every gamer is a white male sexual pig.

I dont see how you can side with the people who call their own demographic, losers, filty nerds and white male sexual pigs. Because other genders and other races apparently dont play games?

This is the whole "anime is for whites" all over again, but instead of anime, its games. and gamer gate is trying(and succeeding) to prove them wrong.

And no, Gamergate isnt the trolls and anons from 4chan.

But you wont agree because your a SJW and will disagree with every body and call them sexualpigs.

Loooong sigh. I was hoping this topic wouldn't reach the CR forums...

Just gonna leave that quote from the ANN forums here and be on my way


This is going to be the only thing I say on this matter, and then I'll be done.

Being one of the moderators on FUNimation's forums, I have heard from an official source that FUNimation and the writers have talked to Tyson personally and asked him to refrain from referencing GamerGate in any more of their dubs, to which he has agreed. Also, they are considering re-dubbing the line for the home video release, but they have not yet made the decision to do so just yet.

Just thought I should pass that along. On a personal level, I've had to deal with this matter on the FUNi forums since the dub debuted, and quite frankly I'm tired of it. The sooner we can all put this behind us, the better.



Ha!

That's SpacemanHardy, while he said that on the forums, he was trolling twitter at the same time. I swear FUNImation has some problems with their people.

Repeatedly bashing your target with the label "SJW" while simultaneously crying about being unfairly labeled/categorized. Was going to remark on the general practice of changing content in dubs but this level of BS is too much for me today. I'm out.

FFS, this isn't a topic that deserved a bump.

Funimation made a crappy dub with awful adaptive choices for Prison School months ago and it just happens that this one line got more flake than everything else in it to the point they considered to remove it for home video release.

Can't people just move on? Keeping this thread alive with only bring more pointless drama BS no one needs.

You know this thread has existed for 7 months with no mention of #notyourshield?

The movement was never based off sexism. the second that narrative started the people it affected, men, women, black, white yellow simultaneously said "ummmm no"

You couldn't let the thread die, could you? Why must you exercise necromancy on this thread?

It's kinda like when somebody reply's to a 2 year old you tube comment.

The truth is, I just wanted to let my opinion on the matter be known. Do with that what you may. I Also felt like the thread was incomplete without it's mention (seriously every thread with this topic no mention of #NYS is anywhere.)
