    Manhattan Walk with harassment

    a) I think the use of quotes around harassment was more due to a lot of the comments being one off comments rather than multiple comments or being followed, which in the cases shown I would hope any reasonable person would call harassment. This is the issue of having a mutable language, what you call harassment someone else might not and vice versa, so the first step is always to ensure we're on the same page when discussing a topic. b) I actually thought that was the point of video.

    Come on. Are you really that stupid and blind? Just look at the world around us ffs. It's run for the profits of the very minisucle miniority at the top and the detriment of everyone else and the detriment of the environment. If you truly believe that modern society is heading in the right direction for everyones' benifit then you must live in a different world than I do. And it's statements like yours that have lead it to this. Being fucking ignorant because I'm ok over here, fuck whats happening over there. Just because I would rather act when the facts have been gathered and analysed rather than some knee jerk over feels doesn't make me 'ignorant' in fact I would argue that it's the exact opposite. We live in a time when crime is low and freedom is high, while it's certainly not perfect and there are still some old battles that need to be won (e.g. marriage equality) and some new ones on the horizon (e.g. data privacy, climate change). Creating a climate of fear or persecution when it doesn't exist is exactly the thinking that will lead to the erosion of our freedom.

    And you base that on what exactly?

    So he got chatted up by the ladies and homosexuals. And yes, the guys who said something are gay, because the only reason they did say something was to illict a conversation to advance a hook up. I guess the moral of the story is to feel bad for good looking people because random people think it's ok to hit on strangers if they find them attractive. The moral of the story is to not draw conclusions from heavily edited videos or to project your own biasses onto other people, if a problem does exist it needs to properly identified and analysed so that the appropriate corrective action can be taken, not used to generate money, create unjustified fear or make people feel like victims/perpetrators when the aren't.

    This. I'd wager that all the guys being being 'polite' by saying hello do not say anything to random men walking by ever. Ever... They might have, this guy got a fair bit of attention just walking around as well

    Lots of shit still rolling out from both the niche and mainstream media these days, but Huff Post tried a little harder than most and got three women in to talk about GamerGate, it's just over 26 minutes if you have some time to kill.

    And there goes Cairns, bye Eveln!

    While I very much hope this lady doesn't have Ebola, or if she does she makes a full recovery. If it is Ebola then hopefully the action being taken here will be enough to put a halt to the doom-sayers worrying about it running rampant through the West.

    Makes for a better title than; "Nurse that recently returned after travelling to Liberia has a slightly elevated temperature."

    I have no idea what your talking about anymore and frankly if your going down the road of Gamergate as an online terrorist group then I doubt you have any idea either.

    What the hell is wrong with you people?, comparing an international terrorist organisation that commits gross violation of human rights to an anti-corruption/censorship consumer movement is a bit of mental gymnastics that is impossible to fathom.

    Fair criticism. I should have paid more attention to referencing, particularly after criticising the video over a lack of referencing. I was under the impression that this was a casual debate, and so I provided sources for those interested in looking into the argument more thoroughly, but did not go to the extra effort of quoting sections or providing references to specific paragraphs. From my perspective if you want to keep it casual then you should write your post causally, either way I think I've taken this doubly off topic now so back to "GENDER, GAMING, AND INTERNET TROLLS".

    Did you actually read the two sources I did reference? They covered many of the arguments I made, though in a lot more depth. Regardless, I'm not really sure I follow your objection. Are you trying to say that feminisation of a workforce doesn't effect wages, or that women being paid less is mostly circumstantial? After my quick Google I actually tend towards believing the original premise, namely that for some reason (possibly wage inertia, maybe something else) feminized occupations are paid less. What my objection was with is the way you referenced your claims, from my view I asked for a reference to relatively specific claim and you provided a large document in response and then said to Google everything else. If you have to provide large documents you should also quote the relevant pages, and while this might seem a little ridiculous for an internet forum after marking many poorly referenced assignments, referencing has become a bit of a bugbear for me.

    A simple 'No' would have sufficed, saying something is easy to find on Google isn't the same as providing a good reference. The best I could find in a 'quick' Google that wasn't word salad was this article which states "There is only slight evidence that the feminization of occupations lowers their wages"

    1) In general I agree but this appears to be a general piece about feminism, Hoff Sommers has linked to sources in previous articles about the myth of the gender wage gap. 2) Do you have a reference for that being the case? 3) I think that's more a reflection on you, than CHS. I didn't get even a hint smarminess.

    Now they want to shut down 4chan

    It would also be a complete waste of time, shut down 4chan and they'll just move to another chan. There was suppose to be an exodus from 4chan (or one of it's boards?) over the last week or so anyway so blocking a possibly shrinking chan would get you no where.
