In Topic: More women stuff - Background decoration?

The more I watch her videos the more I think part of the backlash comes from her presentation - and let me say I am in no way condoning the reaction to the videos.

She takes a very long time to actually make her point, and rather points out examples ad nausaem to a viewership that largely already hates her guts. It's also clear she's trying to go with sounding as neutral as possible and just say her piece, and I think that rubs already sexist people the wrong way for whatever reason. By the time she gets to the meat of what she's trying to say, people are poking holes in every little thing she's said regardless of how relevant it is.

I think it's good she's making these videos. I think the reaction alone (not from you guys necessarily, but from the general gaming community) is telling in terms of how reluctant this demographic is to criticism from a woman. Even if some of it isn't valid, the reaction is disproportionate and quite frankly disturbing.  

I think it would be helpful if there were some kind of Colbert-like person to use humor to kind of disarm some of that innate sexism and allow people to at least hear what she has to say and even if you don't agree with it at least attempt to understand where she's coming from. I don't think there's enough of that.

I've been nursing a groin pull for about 7-8 weeks and it's pissing me off because I love to run.

I think the Internet has really affected my ability to focus for a long period of time.

I've never been a stickler for making them look exactly like they really do. I mean it's nice, but I really don't care at all when I'm playing. I care about how the game plays.

That's fine, but the game still looked like ass, both in stills and animation.
