The Open Thread: October 2016

After receiving an increasing number of comments that were only tangentially related to my blog posts, I began posting the (mostly) monthly 'Open Thread'. This has been working very well so far.

In short, if you think anything you're going to write is "off topic" to the current post, but still related to pickup, women, gender politics and other topics I discuss on this blog, then please leave a comment to the most recent Open Thread, such like this one. Just post below.

Thank you.

The figurative and literal dumbing down of video games

I barely play video games these days, and part of the reason is that I disapprove of publishers shoving a political agenda down my throat. Just look at The Last of Us or Uncharted 4! A related reason is that since gaming has become part of the mainstream there are just too many idiots involved in it. Case in point: look for a gaming forum online, or go to YouTube. You'll be surrounded by people who are unable to write properly or make a coherent argument, and then there is the SJW plague that has infested gaming journalism.

At the BBC, being white and male is now a fireable offence

I just came across this:
Bafta award-winning comedian Jon Holmes was axed from The Now Show – the hit Radio 4 programme he has appeared on for 18 years – when bosses told him 'we're recasting it with more women and diversity'.
The (archived) article is here.
