Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

RyuuzakiTetsuya Re:All of her free time and then some (1220 comments)

You mean the game jam where they wanted you to work for free and own your work?

She tweeted a few times about it openly and had a few twitter discussions with people about it. Plus she was speaking from a good professional point of view.

Fuck you pay me.

We don't know that Zoe Quinn doxxed her self. I'd love to see some really good hard evidence to this fact.

I'm logged into tumblr right now on three computers(not to mention the mobile app on an iPad and an iPhone); so saying that you can't be logged in multiple computers and multiple IPs is not evidence.

Nor is the fact that the data that was dumped was wrong. That doesn't prove she doxxed herself either. It just means the dox were wrong.

It's comments like this that make me think the tech community isn't a completely lost cause.

She has 114 thousand followers on twitter, 150k subscribers on YouTube and whenever she puts out a video it gets picked up by Kotaku, Polygon/Verge, Destructoid, etc.

Publicity stunt? Not fucking likely.

After Elliott Rodger, even if it's a freak occurrence, one would hate to be the exception to that rule given that life is on the line.

IBM Gearing Up Mega Power 8 Servers For October Launch

RyuuzakiTetsuya Re:Jobs law of tech headlines. In short, maybe. (113 comments)

But the subtext to "taking on Intel" is the idea that IBM can't carve out a niche for itself and that *any* market is a zero sum game where someone has to lose out.

I say that's goddamned hogwash.

IBM Gearing Up Mega Power 8 Servers For October Launch

RyuuzakiTetsuya Jobs law of tech headlines. In short, maybe. (113 comments)

"We have to let go of this notion that for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose."

This is more universally true than a lot of people are willing to let on.

Can IBM Power 8 actually take on x86? Or has that ship already sailed?

They don't need to take on Intel and x86. They just need to make a profit on each system sold.

I seriously don't understand why the tech common wisdom doesn't understand this very basic concept of business logic.

New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

RyuuzakiTetsuya Re: The world we live in. (585 comments)

They're not mutually exclusive. Sexual harassment, sexual identity and all sorts of other issues related to sex and body integrity also exist.

So, yes, rape culture extends from a culture of overall but declining violence and but also restrictive and repressive cultural norms around sex.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According To a Koch-Backed Astroturf Group

RyuuzakiTetsuya Re:What's so American (525 comments)

Because the FCC has done such a FABULOUS job regulating teh airwaves, we just HAVE to get them involved in the Internet!

Actually, yes. The FCC has done a great job with the airwaves. If you can get radio or tv signals to your home, thank the FCC.

The censorship part, not so much.

Saying we have crazy people and blaming it on the crazies hides how bad our violent crime rate is compared to the rest of the developed world.

It's gotten much better than the 60s, but we are still way past the curve here.

Yes. There is a culture of violence in our society.

Why else would someone decide the only way to deal with someone texting in a theater is to blow their fucking head off?

Or to deal with someone who's music is too loud is to put a gun through the window and start shooting?

New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

RyuuzakiTetsuya Re: The world we live in. (585 comments)

1 in 5 women will get sexually assaulted in her life time.

1 in 5 homes will not get burglarized in their entire existence.

No one* is teaching boys it's ok to harass and rape. Just like no one says "you didn't lock your doors enough" when a house is burgled.

Blurred Lines hit #1 on the pop charts. The repeated stories about guys who get away with rape even after it's been reported and there's solid evidence for it. Guys like MMA star War Machine(God help me, that's his legal name) telling people that his ex-GF is his property.

There's all sorts of cultural influences telling men that they're entitled to women's bodies. In essence, we're teaching our children that rape is OK. It's called Rape Culture.

Here's Rape Culture 101

And yes, there's all sorts of antisemitic influences in our culture. Including saying someone "Jewed" you out of money. But that's another rant.

If burglary and child abduction are as common as rape, we would be having a MUCH DIFFERENT conversation.

But it's not.

Rape is really common.

And it happens to people who have taken all the precautions in the world. Telling someone to mitigate the risks while looking at all possible ways for things to go wrong and then saying, "You didn't mitigate risks enough!" is ridiculous.

Stop teaching boys it's ok to harass, rape or feel entitled to women's (and men's) bodies. No, persistence isn't going to pay off. It's just creepy.

There was no rape apology there.

Bull fucking shit.

It's far more likely that you know someone who claims that happened to her. She may even believe it. It's far more likely though, that she drank more than she wants to admit.

Which is why people are not allowing you to conflate the two. Some times alcohol hits you harder than you expect. A lot of women think this means they were roofied (because people like you tell them there's roofies around every corner).

Have I said roofies are around every corner? No.

Nice straw man.

If you get hit with a date rape drug, you will not feel like you got overly drunk in the morning.

Here's a great post talking about this particular issue. in short, the notion of "you drank too much" vs "You got date rape drugged." is so fucking stupid it's comical. Well, it'd be comical if it wasn't so fucking tragic.

stop fucking raping people and covering up rape.

That would mean staring at your beverage the entire night rather than socializing.

This is amazing. The message should always be, "never rape" instead of "don't get raped."

Being able to say no to liquor is extremely easy.

Being able to say no to GHB that's been slipped into your drink isn't.

Steve Jobs reportedly angry over Android.

RyuuzakiTetsuya RyuuzakiTetsuya writes  |  more than 2 years ago

RyuuzakiTetsuya writes "MacRumors shares a snippet from AP's coverage here of Steve Jobs' biography in which it is said that, "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong," Jobs said. "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this." He was also reported as telling Schmidt, "I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that's all I want.""

CPS-3 Broken

RyuuzakiTetsuya RyuuzakiTetsuya writes  |  more than 7 years ago

RyuuzakiTetsuya writes "Maybe not Classic according to the Classic Gaming Expo crowd, but, the long wait is over! The CPS 3 System has been emulated! All three revisions of Street Fighter 3(New Generation, 2nd Impact, Third Strike), the two Jojo's Bizzare Adventure games and the original, obscure game, Warzard/Red Earth are now playable. The problem never was the motherboard itself, but that the games were all heavily encrypted. Thanks to work done by Haze and Andreas, this encryption has been broken!"
