sjw's DONT exist!

They are either being willfully dishonest or are simply delusional.

Things you should know about SJWs in reality:

- Most people who would self-identify as a "SJW" are well-meaning and primarily want to make the world a better place for disenfranchised groups. Not all SJWs know how best to achieve their goals, but they aren't malicious.

- The term "SJW" has an inherently positive connotation (referring to a person who fights for increased societal justice), but anti-SJWs have made changed how internet culture at large views the term. There's a good chance that you associate the term with annoying and/or stupid people, but that's only because of propaganda.

- While there are some "SJWs" who are annoying, stupid, or even toxic, these are only a vocal minority that in no way represent the majority of people who seek improved societal justice. And the vast majority of these toxic individuals are mostly harmless.

- "SJWs" are nowhere near as influential towards pop culture trends as anti-SJWs like to suggest. The increased prevalence of progressive ideas in pop culture is a product of a generally more progressive society than what existed in the past, a society where racism, sexism, and bigotry of all forms are much less socially acceptable than they were in the past. "SJWs" are just a small part of a much larger societal trend towards increased societal justice.

Don't let the anti-SJWs convince you that SJWs are a legitimate problem. Don't be intellectually lazy.

More like theirs an agenda against whatever shit hes spewing. Can't say I have noticed any negative discrimination against myself because I am white.

TBH reading his other tweets, i think he just wants some attention.

He also tweeted this joke...

https://mobile.twitter.com/notch/status/960141765532704768

Apparently he thinks making jokes about sexual harassment in an industry know for, well, having problems with sexual harassment is both funny and a good idea.

And really, even if sexual harassment were funny, his joke wouldn't have been.

Chances are if someone finds themselves agreeing with notch on much they need to rethink their lives.

I actually agree with the tweet about what women find attractive in men, but the rest of it is just reactionary stupidity. This dude needs to realize that the SJW climate on social media doesn't see more than one side of an issue, so he needs to just stfu.

Technically, maybe. There's an 'agenda' against everyone in the world if you look hard enough. If you actually think this is a problem, though, you need to get over your persecution complex.

I don't think it's an agenda as more of developers trying to move away from the 18-35yo White Male demographic that has dominated video Games since the beginning. However, I really don't see publishers(mostly run by very disconnected 40-50's somethings) moving away from their safe space and demographic they have known since inception. #Hotdogsgetabadrep

Not saying I have been discriminated against, but I don’t think there are any scholarships for whites only. Whereas there are other scholarships if you are a minority. I can imagine the uproar if there was a scholarship for whites that didn’t include other races, but when the shoe is on the other foot it doesn’t seem to be an issue.

This is what happens when someone is given so much money that they don't have to actually do anything any more. The guy needs to get off Twitter and find something else to do with his time. Maybe use some of his huge wealth to do good instead of courting controversy to get attention.

This wont be popular but I agree with you. How can someone who has so much money that nothing on this planet is out of his reach have issues?

I am not saying that money can buy happiness but it can save you from alot of stress. If you feel lonely and isolated then perhaps the issue is you and your personality? If you were a looser before you got rich suddenly getting rich is not gong to make you "cool" and the popularity it attracts is fake as well.

It just cracks me up seeing a 29 year old (or whatever age he was at the time) billionaire complain on Twitter about how tough they have it. Like how fucking oblivious and self absorbed could you possibly be? Maybe trying donating your money to the people all over the world who actually need it and see if that makes you feel better.

I agree. 

I dont know if you are from the UK but when ever I see people like Bob "Gimme ya fuckin moneh!" Geldof or other celebrities begging for donations and then whooping about raising two million all I can think of is "Well if you all gave just ten percent of your fortunes we would never need to host this event again" and I wonder how much they are getting paid for this.

This.
My baby run to me. She lives in broken down buildings. Can't pay the rent again. These spider webs are my home now.
sure. I mean, men make up the vast majority of leads in games, movies, books, comics, TV shows and any other form of media, they make up the vast majority of high level positions in virtually every single sector of employment and they make more money when working the same job even after experience and leave are taken into account, but since some guy says there's an agenda there must be.

Here's how it is; us men have been the dominant gender forever. You do not see the situation as unbalanced you see it as the way it is. So now, when women start getting equal treatment, it looks like things aren't equal. I mean, they can't be, men have lost rights and women have gained them. It's all just a matter of perspective though, one that the ignorant and unintelligent (and those hoping to profit off the ignorant and unintelligent) disregard or plain don't understand.

    Once again, troll topic, clearly, but if I approach it with an open perspective, I actually have tuppence to add.

    "Positive discrimination" is something that's been floating around for the past near-decade, but only really gone into overdrive in the past five. I remember it well when working for a larger AAA studio (maybe not the one you think) and we went through a phase where the studio only ever seemed to hire minorities or women. Now, I've no problem with either of these types of people, but it started to get a bit suspect.

    When we had studio photographs, the photographer would order all the women to stand at the front.

    Some of the female developers argued that it was "great" - more women in games! Well, it SOUNDS great, sure, but when everyone's on this mad mission to hire only women or minorities, what does that make you, to be hired at that time? Are you hired because of your SKILL, or because you were convenient to tick a box with?

    If I had been in that predicament, it'd put me in a horrible state of anxiety. Was I chosen because I'm good enough or not? Did I stop another, far more talented individual from getting the job because of the colour of my skin or what's between my legs? And of course... would my fellow employees think less of me just because I was hired during this covert-but-quite-obvious "diversity drive"? Would they shun me, demonise me, or even create an even MORE tribal setup in the studio (with girls sitting with girls, boys sitting with boys, etc).

    I remember when our studio head was appointed, and she said - and I'm not paraphrasing this - "I'm fed up of it being a middle-aged white man's job. We've got enough of those." She paused for a chuckle, but, of course, the majority of us were white men, and found it pretty insulting.

    Some people have this "we want reparations!" mentality that means "equality" doesn't actually mean "equality" or "equity" but instead means "we want to rubberband the situation and get MORE than you as reparations for all those years we had no representation!" - which can only lead to another rubberbanding situation further down the line.

    Equality is just that - equality. If I hire someone, it's because they're best for the job. If they all happen to be men, or women, or T-rexes - so be it. There will be no agenda.

    Though, rather hilariously, our company ended up being a disabled Scot (me), a woman, and a French man. So we've ticked some boxes already. Snort.

    Does not compute..... You had no issue with the context.... but then made an assumption not based on the context. Then telling me I'm deflecting after YOU brought up the racist card for some reason.

    I had no problem with the context. Just pointing out that you are generalizing whether you say it one way or the other.

    I like how you immediately deflected the racism to me lol. I'm calling you racist because you seem to enjoy that the tables have supposedly turned. If it was so atrocious what whites did to blacks back then, why would you seem okay with the opposite today?


    Does not compute..... You had no issue with the context.... but then made an assumption not based on the context. Then telling me I'm deflecting after YOU brought up the racist card for some reason.

    This conversation shouldn't be happening because you're turning it into something it's not.

    WHat?

    I should have known better. Logic is not their strong suit.

    Well, it SOUNDS great, sure, but when everyone's on this mad mission to hire only women or minorities, what does that make you, to be hired at that time? Are you hired because of your SKILL, or because you were convenient to tick a box with?

    If I had been in that predicament, it'd put me in a horrible state of anxiety. Was I chosen because I'm good enough or not? Did I stop another, far more talented individual from getting the job because of the colour of my skin or what's between my legs? And of course... would my fellow employees think less of me just because I was hired during this covert-but-quite-obvious "diversity drive"? 

    [...]

    Equality is just that - equality. If I hire someone, it's because they're best for the job. If they all happen to be men, or women, or T-rexes - so be it. There will be no agenda.


    The problem with the second part is that there's rarely a best person for the job. Usually there's several equally qualified candidates. And that leads to the problem with the first part, namely that statistically white men are hired more frequently than equally qualified candidates and that the data suggests that for some, namely blacks, the level of discrimination hasn't changed in about a quarter century...

    https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2017/09/11/1706255114

    So... shouldn't then every white male who's hired already be wondering if they were hired because of what's between their legs and the color of their skin since every study done shows that it's statistically more likely that would have been based on no other factors?

    And yet you never really see any white men fretting about it, just being concerned that someone else might fret were the scales potentially weighted by some thing other than the established institutionalised biases.

    New York, demographically, is about 40% white. The black and Latino population together is also around 40%. Yet blacks and Latinos represented around 90% of who got stopped under the stop and frisk program. And the vast majority were guilty of nothing. And that's in NY, a rather progressive state.

    You don't need anyone to tell you it's okay to be white. You have basically every statistic ever collected to do that for you.

    Not that hard to believe at all.

    The thing about institutionalised bias is that everyone plays the part. It's generally not an intentional act of bigotry, so much as people subconsciously acting on notions society as drilled into us.

    Studies have shown that black men working in human resources are less likely to hire equally qualified black men when there is a white male applicant as an option. Obviously they don't hate black men, but we've been programmed by society, the media and hundreds of years of history to see white faces as more desirable.

    Positive discrimination isn't discrimination against white men. Its a realisation that society excluded those from various backgrounds from participating in the workforce and politics.

    The idea isn't just to take any ethnic minority persons of the street and employ them, but to shine a spotlight on those who are qualified and actively take them into positions they may have been overlooked for or were unaware they could fill.

    White men aren't done a disservice by this, it's literally correcting hundreds of years of discrimination that they indirectly have benefitted from.

    And yet you never really see any white men fretting about it, just being concerned that someone else might fret were the scales potentially weighted by some thing other than the established institutionalised biases.

    Understandable, but as I say oh-so-frequently on here, if people tell me one thing, but I've only ever seen another, I tend to value my own eyes first and foremost. By no means is it demonising or devaluing your information or stance, just... at least anecdotally, that's a few times now I've worked in a AAA game development role and I've watched a "positive discrimination" drive occurring.

    Of course I won't go so far as to go into too many details here, but during the hiring process, one of my friends, now an ex-colleague, was (and still is) in a senior role and spoke about how he felt sad for (X hirer) because he "had to" turn down the best candidate for the job. And I saw the portfolios - I can attest to this, the technical ability of the "losing" party was superior. But, the following week, we welcomed on eight or nine new members of the team - all but two were female (and those that were male were black), and one of them was trans.

    Now, look, I am a keen advocate for diversity here, but given that we're in the UK and the applicants usually skew around about 70-80% male, that has to have been an EXCEEDINGLY unusual hiring period, if we're going to say that "positive discrimination" is not a real thing.

    It makes it harder to have diversity in the long-run. Instead of dilution/diversification of the staff pool in an organic way, it's instead undermining not only the hiring process, but also the people that may have been hired for a handy checkbox and neat photograph opportunity to put on the next newsletter.

    Nobody wants to be hired because of their sex or race, but as my own wife says, "even I worried about it. Everyone made a big deal about me being a girl developer, kept asking me to write in-house articles, trying to put me on the website etc. - was I hired because I was the best for the job, or was I just really useful to the company for other purposes?"

      congratulations. So am I. 

      You are also confused. These people aren't being hired due to their skin colours, they are being promoted as viable contenders for roles due to a lack of diversity in the prospective workplaces. 

      That's what you and your (surprising choice of) friends either don't or refuse to understand.

      Its racist to hire people based on skin color..

      Btw, im black.


      congratulations. So am I. 

      You are also confused. These people aren't being hired due to their skin colours, they are being promoted as viable contenders for roles due to a lack of diversity in the prospective workplaces. 


      Its the same damn thing...

      Heh is this a joke? Or are you that much of a recluse dipshit. 

      Name me the last mainstream film you saw with an asian male lead.
      The Marvel world and shows were very white in the 90s, a few characters turned black a decade or so later. Did any of them turn asian?
      Is there any asian male on America or European national sports team? America I doubt but Europe definitely nope


      The guy is a special case but still.

      There's also a huge Asian film industry that varies from country to country but they always seem to ignore that, hell india is in asia and they have the biggest movie industry in the world.

      Why do they need to be represented in western films when they have their own films?

      New York, demographically, is about 40% white. The black and Latino population together is also around 40%. Yet blacks and Latinos represented around 90% of who got stopped under the stop and frisk program. And the vast majority were guilty of nothing. And that's in NY, a rather progressive state.

      You don't need anyone to tell you it's okay to be white. You have basically every statistic ever collected to do that for you.

      whites commit crime at a lot lower rate per capita than black and brown people too though. whatever the police are doing in NYC is working. the crime rate as plummeted there


      Correction: people of color are convicted of more blue collar crime per capita. They are also disproptonatley poor and under- or unemployed. Which should be unsurprising given statistics presented in this thread. And unsurprisingly, poor white people are also more prone to commit blue collar crime than rich white people. But even then the numbers are skewed.

      When the judicial system has shown, for instance, that it's twice as likely to peruse mandatory minimum sentencing for black people as opposed to white people, for the same minor drug offences...

      http://www.drugpolicy.org/issues/race-and-drug-war

      ...don't you think that has some effect on the statistics? Or the fact that 90% of the people that Stop and Frisk was directed at were people of color?

      Regardless, crime in NY has been dripping since 1991. It was a sharp decline until 1997, then evened out afterward with a slow steady decline past that. Stop and Frisk became policy in 2002, which saw no noticeable statistical effect from then until 2013 when it (arguably) ended, and afterward there was no increase.

      The study does not take into account repeat offenses. When you are convicted of a crime, and you have already previously committed a crime, then you are going to get harsher punishment.

      yehh you're a dumbass... 

      The guy said, "you have to be a straight white man. if you check all three of those boxes you're the most hated, least protected, most disadvantaged group in the civilized world."

      We concurred that the West (I.e. Europe and America) are part of civilised world. I retorted that here asian men are (usually quite a bit) worse off than white men.

      That's what you and your (surprising choice of) friends either don't or refuse to understand. 

      These people are qualified for the job, but they have been highlighted as to prevent them being tossed to the side due to their background or gender

      In other words, they are being hired because they aren't white.

      The problem between me and you though is I don't care how others view me.

      You seem to because you came back with this retort.

      Edit: I think the cringing people are doing at you is 10x worse though. The things i've said can't reach your level of cringe as I stick to video games.
