Gee I wonder if a media scare had any involvement in this.
Does this mean there will be more talk about video games and less talk about things that aren't video games? Does this mean there will be more good video games made that aren't trying to push agendas? Does this mean the incestuous cabal that's pushing those agendas on their shitty websites will give up and get real jobs?
You kind of failed to read further in and realize that they said they're leaving because of hostile work environments, not because they don't like tech.
This will just make the SJW's even worse, and give them more ammunition.
This article reeks of an agenda. I can't put my finger on it but...

>hostile work environment
>women have to make everything everywhere all the time about them
>women trying to push their sexual, moral, and political agendas into the games they make
>constantly backstabbing, engaging in passive-aggressive behavior, playing two sides against each other, playing the victim in every situation, and lying to everyone about everything
Pretty sure it's not the boys who are making these work environments hostile.
It's like I'm reading a Dilbert comic, except somehow this is a special case because "poor wymons T.T".
I can't find it, but there was some magazine that had an all-women staff and it failed miserably because the office turned into one big fashion contest with constant bickering and backstabbing and highschool-level passive-aggression. Anyone know the article I mean?
Wait, so hostile environments are working?
KEEP UP THE MUHSOGYNEE, BOYS
WE'LL NEVER LET THOSE FETID CUNTS IN
Yeah, ran the all-women staff ran the company into the ground because they couldn't stop gossiping about purses and bickering about wearing the same outfit. It sounds like some ridiculous strawman anti-feminist thing but the whole thing is true. Gimme a few minutes to find the link.
>Does this mean the incestuous cabal that's pushing those agendas on their shitty websites will give up and get real jobs?
No, because 99% of that cabal is comprised of white men with social issues.
Why are SJWs trying to force women into professions they don't give a flying fuck about?
Science has already proved that cultural gender roles were a fixed biological result, not a silly "patriarchy" conspiracy or any of that nonsense.
Sweden tested it themselves, they had to stop children from falling back into the supposedly "oppressive" gender roles when they were put into one of those fruity free spirit classes.
I don't think this is it, but it is similar.
Jeeez maybe because it's thankless job with slavery work hours populated by celebs with no hint of talent who will take credit for all your work and fire your ass as soon as they deem it necessary to offsource yet another department to china ?
Naaah I bet it's soggy knees like always.
Yeah, that's the one. I thought she ran a magazine, not a TV thing. My mistake.
But yeah that whole article is basically an SJW's nightmare, the sort of thing they'd try to bury as deeply as possible. It's actually really hilarious, especially her defeated reaction to it.
Seriously though, someone in that thread talks about how girls are funnelled by society away from technology/ gaming, and towards feminised areas. That's the real problem, not any of this other bullshit.
>not the people getting decapitated by ISIS
>not the whole charlie hebdo accident
>not having shit happening to yourself
>this is agonizingly depressing
i swear, it must take a special kind of dumb to post in that place
>"The main thing would be professionalism. Just being able to treat each other with respect would be huge."
OH I AM SURE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO FIND PEOPLE AS PROFESSIONAL AS BEN CUCKERA AND MRS. MEGAPHONE
Sure. But I don't think putting blankets over entire sexes is correct- generally speaking, most girls probably aren't interested, but society will direct the rest of them towards the 'girly' things.
I don't care enough to debate this, I think the whole issue is dumb and hateful.
Name ONE good game directed by a woman.
What does this have to do with anything?
This is not /v/ related at all, piss off faGGots I thought your goal was to fix corrupt vidya journalism, not prove the SJWs right about you, you retarded virgins.
>scaring way the only women on the planet that would actually have sex with you
good job guys
Oh, okay. Honestly I've read this before and the magazine company part sounded super familiar, and that's what I searched.
But yeah, this is something else. Fucking hilarious.
>funnelled by society
Maybe I'm wrong here, but can any person not choose any career they please?
>Science has already proved that cultural gender roles were a fixed biological result, not a silly "patriarchy" conspiracy or any of that nonsense.
Never seen the proof, but it wouldnt surprise me. Its not like every gender role, or even the concept of gender is a bad thing. And really, do most women actually WANT to work in jobs like mining, logging, or combat-heavy military jobs? They are not exactly easy or fun stuff to do.
If women dont like the gaming or tech industry, thats fine. Hopefully they find something they really enjoy doing.
>posting any version than the original that ends at 2012
Did you miss when this was posted?
This is what working environments are like when women are involved.
You can complain once you've killed at least 100 men.
Those hormones and instincts have a profound enough of an impact to create tangible gender roles that exist throughout human history and across every human culture possible.
Women do have interest fields. Particularly nursing and education, which are EXTREMELY female dominated.
Now, is that the result of an evil male conspiracy via psychic indoctrination or is it simply what MOST (READ: MOST) women want to do?
I work at a software company and we have a handful of female developers and I've never seen anyone be hostile to them regarding their gender. They have just as much respect as anyone else who works there pretty much. They are extremely outnumbered compared to male developers but they seems to command just as much respect as anyone else.
>OR MAYBE WOMEN DON'T CARE ABOUT TECH AND VIDEOGAMES??????? MAYBE THEIR BRAINS SIMPLY DON'T GIVE THE SAME SHITS THAT MALE BRAINS DO???
>this is what the goobers actually believe.
You don't see all the women who want this guy's job?
>yfw her girlfriend probably fucked some ugly ass mongolian
I thought it was about ethics and had nothing to do with misogyny guys?
Exceptions always exist. I'm talking on broad terms.
That said, exceptional women who defy gender roles shouldn't be disbarred from doing what they want to do. Same goes for men.
Sit in on a technology based college/university class sometime.
95%-99%, in some instances, 100%, of the class will be male. When I graduated, we had zero girls, they all dropped out before the third semester
>Women do have interest fields.
One of those was computer science until they were driven out.
>Women do have interest fields. Particularly nursing and education
Exactly. And men dont really mind, because most women are pretty damn good nurses (and even doctors).
>posting dailymail article as proof of whole gender's behaviour
>"Software Engineer Margaret Hamilton with a pile of print-out results from simulations, circa 1969 (MIT Library)"
She didn't write that shit, faggot.
>Tracey Lien is a technology reporter for the Los Angeles Times working in the San Francisco Bay Area. She previously covered the video game industry for Vox Media and, before that, Kotaku Australia. A Sydney native, she moved to the U.S. in 2013 because the servings are bigger. She enjoys perpetuating lies about Australian animals, specifically drop bears and boxing kangaroos.
- San Fransisco Bay area
- Kotaku Australia
- Vox media
I wonder why it was posted on Neogaf, then minutes later on /v/
Computer science is the only STEM discipline where the the number of women has been decreasing year after year.
>The dailymail is good though, except for when it has articles I don't agree with, then it's worthless garbage that shouldn't be trusted
>A Sydney native, she moved to the U.S. in 2013 because the servings are bigger.
you Americans can fucking keep her
Maybe it's a regional thing, but there was probably only 5% in my CS courses, and that's being generous.
Almost none of them were white girls though, just Chinese and Indian girls who actually gave a shit and spent their time studying instead of whining.
>She didn't write that shit, faggot.
>Margaret Heafield Hamilton (born August 17, 1936) is a computer scientist, systems engineer, and business owner. She was Director of the Software Engineering Division of the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, which developed on-board flight software for the Apollo space program. Hamilton's work prevented an abort of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In 1986, she became the founder and CEO of Hamilton Technologies, Inc. in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The company was developed around the Universal Systems Language based on her paradigm of Development Before the Fact (DBTF) for systems and software design.
>Hamilton has published over 130 papers, proceedings, and reports concerned with the 60 projects and six major programs in which she has been involved.
Girls don't get into tech because, despite how much LA and New York and all the standard 'jock' cities pretend to be okay with tech - they aren't. Tech is still a very much sneered upon profession; just one that happens to make more money then wall street. People still considered coders to be "basement dwelling nerds", because of the stigma that's been there since the fucking 1970s.
It isn't going to go away any time soon.
oh shit, its the first time get to the end of it. i really wasnt expecting that, fucking normies man
there are a lot of female developers in japanese companies.
>women complain about not having other women in the game industry
>these same women do nothing but write articles about how scary the game industry is for women and how they should stay away
why does this keep happening
silent hill games are literally some of the worst games I have ever played. 2deep4u bullshit story that doesn't make sense, awful controls, horrible puzzles. No wonder those games are so trash if women worked on them
>GAMERS HATE WOMEN, THEY'RE WORSE THAN HITLER, WOMEN STAY AWAY
>WHY AREN'T THERE MORE WOMEN HERE
>GAMERS ARE TERRORIST NERDS WITH NO LIFE
>WHY ARE YOU SAYING THAT PEOPLE WHO PLAY VIDEO GAMES ARE TERRORIST NERDS WITH NO LIFE?
They don't even explain what the problem is aside from some vague notions, nor do they have the viewpoint of the companies involved, so you you're just left taking these people at their word, which you're not really sure of either.
You can never trust them. They're not out for unbiased stats or to fix something, they just want to drum up controversy so they can make everyone feel guilty.
See the wage-gap that got a mention at the oscars yesterday
>all those people whining about how the oscars were racist because everyone was white
>caring about race or gender at all in a completely merit-based contest
Gee, maybe if people who weren't white made movies that weren't shit, they'd get nominated.
What the fuck was there, Selma?
But anon, the article they link to from Oct. 2014 says it's dead, so it must be, why would they lie?
What I'm reading is that the guys are too competitive according to her
Also doesn't that travel thing already exist when I use Kayak I get the city or airport I'm looking for when I type in 3 letters
Soul Reaver, you faggot.
That said, look at this and lament:
Didn't start there and didn't end there.
>you guys are making a hostile environment for women in this industry both passively and by outright attacking them
NO WE'RE NOT!
>women are leaving the tech industry in droves
WE DID IT!
>programming 1 class had a little more than 1/3 of the class as women
>mfw my programming 2 class has none
Maybe women are just realizing that tech jobs are extremely demanding, shitty and competitive, while also noticing all the vocal unmarried, childless feminists screeching about "equality" in fields they don't really care about are now referring to their dozen cats as their fur babies before being found dead in their studio apartments, alone, and running the fuck away from a trap designed to suck away their youth and value.
>Don't oppress as much
So what's their endgame here?
Scare every woman who wants to puruse tech with moral panics so the few batshit insane feminists that are left get extra special treatement?
Maybe they get put in a high position, make money and force feminist shit in the company

Keeping their shitty websites alive with clickbait as their souls slowly deteriorate every time they look at their communications, journalism and liberal arts degrees.

whelp, not reading that
>On Nov. 21, 1922, The New York Times gave its readers their first glimpse of Hitler, in a profile that got a lot of things right — its description of his ability to work a crowd into a fever pitch, ready then and there to stage a coup, presaged his unsuccessful beer hall putsch less than a year later. But the article also got one crucial point very wrong — despite what “several reliable, well-informed sources” told The Times in the third paragraph from the bottom, his anti-Semitism was every bit as genuine and violent as it sounded:
>Yet for almost twenty years his articles filled the front page of The New York Times with gripping coverage of the aftermath of the Russian Revolution.
>during the great Ukrainian famine of the early 1930s, which Stalin engineered to crush millions of peasants who resisted his policies, Duranty dismissed other correspondents' reports of mass starvation and, though secretly aware of the full scale of the horror, effectively reinforced the official cover-up of one of history's greatest man-made disasters
So you're still forcing that shitty dailymail article even though there's hundreds of thousands of working all-female companies around the world? Are you serious?
Usually they're dancing schools, wedding shops, party/consert organizers, jewellery manufacturers, gym staff etc.
I'm amazed they don't see the irony of demanding they want to be judged by their actions and not their appearance, then go on to complain about characters' appearance and not their actions.
The DoA girls are extremely sexualized but they're all competent fighters that can stand toe to toe with the male characters and not be at any disadvantage.
Lol. I'm sure Margaret Hamilton did what she did 60 years ago so SJWs can sit on their ass and complain that the reason they aren't as successful as her is because of a male-dominated industry. Thanks for contributing.
