    Re: On the Topic of Female Gamers/Personalities

    As far as I can tell these are grown women who can take care of themselves. They don't need any white knights.

    You know what makes women feel equal? ... men bestowing equality upon them.

    So you, and the others here don't care whether these things happen or don't happen even if you see it? My point in starting this was to reach out to right people and say there is a problem, and if you care, let's help stop it. If you don't care, disregard and carry on your merry way. We as a whole society let things slip by online that would get you in serious trouble in real life. It's not just talking sexual harassment, it's all the types bullying and trolling we see. To me these are all serious problems that need to stop, or at least be capped. Remember as is there is no major reprimand for any type of harassment in this game it seems, and that needs to change.

    I absolutely hate the fact I have to shield a new player from harassment during a game, and then hope I get action. I hate the fact I need to jump in and grab a mods attention during streams in order to shut down someone sexually harassing a female streamer. I hate the fact that I see people make sexual remarks based on the champs people choose. I can keep going on, and on, but you guys should see the point by now. If it wasn't happening, I wouldn't have a problem, but I have seen too much of it for my liking.

    It has irritated me to the point I started this thread knowing a lot players would come and troll rather than providing constructive feedback for, or against. And many others have contacted me through PMs, or have sided with me outside of the forums, but would rather avoid this thread because they know a large portion of the community is not mature enough to make this a constructive argument.

    This not about equality, it is about harassment. Two different things that for some reason you guys are confusing now.

    I was attempting to add a bit of levity. Of course harassment is wrong, though I tend to believe in most people's ability to handle it for the most part.

    Could you please stop with the jabs?

    Not everyone has to agree with you at everything, disagreement helps discourse to happen.
    What you want is a group for people to come together and agree with you, so that you can continue to preach to the choir to make yourself feel a lot better.


    Honestly, what are you proposing here?
    This is not a problem unique to infinite crisis, this is a problem that is pervasive in internet gaming as a whole. You realize this community is incredibly tiny right now and that you getting attention from a mod is easy right now because streams only get about 100 people tops (highest I've seen so far anyway).
    If this game gets bigger, your attempts will be swamped in the twitchTV Kappa spam and whatever else meme comes on by at the time.

    Absolutely nothing will change at all in this dynamic, people doing that are immature and will just find another stream to go to and carry on because "boobz".

    Honestly, all you've said is "Guiz it needs to stop" yet you have never said how you're going to do this, you have no plan of action and you dare to call people out because "we're not mature enough to talk about it".
    You literally have nothing to discuss here.

    Do people want streamers to suffer harassment?
    No.
    Do people want women to get sexually harassed?
    No.

    What is to discuss?

    I predict this thread is self distruct and be closed around page 5-7.

    And this is why. There is no solution. No possible solution. There are only three reasons to make a post like this:

    1. Preach
    2. Want to argue.
    3. Completely out of touch with reality.

    Nobody who is sane can possibly expect something good to come out of this. This isn't even "raising awareness," it's just an opinion war.

    I agree with this, but when some people have to change anything to avoid this, there is a problem.

    And what I want are short term bans for people who partake in any short of harassment, and get caught on the first time. After that, you make it harder on them. I have seen Permabans in other games on the second, even once on the first report of any short of harassment. But once again, those were different times in which communities wanted people to be held accountable for everything they did.

    And I know it is a wide spread issue, but no gaming company I have seen has stepped forth and put their foot down and say it is an intolerable offense in the recent years. When I started gaming, this never was an issue, even amongst the youngest demographic.
