I’m not willing to give them that benefit. Otherwise healthy man is chased down by police for “running” which is by the way not a crime and shouldn’t even be probable cause, then shows up half an hour later with a crushed larynx and damaged spinal chord?” No doubt they were trying to at least brutalize him, if not… » 4/25/15 11:09pm Yesterday 11:09pm

Except that it is. Biological sex is in fact binary for essentially all mammals and most animals, this is an established fact of genetic science. I fully empathise with the idea that gender and sexuality both are not, but citing a fluff piece with a social agenda doesn’t change the fact of that particular situation.

I don't feel sorry one damn bit. She chose not to question, analyze, or verify ANY of supposed victim's comments. She failed to pursue any independent leads or information, and in the process severely harmed the reputation of the school, as well as the credibility in the public eye of every college rape victim that… » 4/06/15 8:24pm 4/06/15 8:24pm

Probably because they’re afraid that people will attempt to skewer them over such an assertion, a la “You don’t think a book by a woman will sell well? You must be sexist!”

I somehow don’t think this is some super secret ulterior motive situation. It’s probably just this. They’re afraid if they admit they don’t know… » 4/06/15 8:14pm 4/06/15 8:14pm

Well one thing to note is Itagaki was still “in charge” of Team Ninja when that happened to the volleyball game, and it’s worth noting that back then he went on a bit of a weird speech about how he feels like they’re his to “protect.” And there may or may not have been some weird fatherhood analogy I’m not sure.

All I… » 4/06/15 8:00pm 4/06/15 8:00pm

I can’t wait to pre-order the combo edition in the US when we get it.

Oh wait, what I meant to say was I can’t wait for nintendo to fuck up, underproduce it, and not tell us anything for months before and after release.

It’s not surprising that their government complained about it. Keep in mind this is the same government that threatened to ban Claire Danes and Justin Bieber on the premise that one of them badmouthed the country and the other badmouthed lord almighty Manny Pacquiao. Granted, I doubt anyone remembers who Claire Danes… » 4/01/15 1:17am 4/01/15 1:17am

"Oh my god a white girl showed her tits let's make sure she's ok!" Meanwhile who knows how many rape victims were dismissed, ignored, or treated as if they were responsible for their own victimization while they were wasting their efforts on this.

All they did hear was call attention to a photo that far fewer people… » 3/22/15 2:04pm 3/22/15 2:04pm

At this point, with what we see EVERY DAMN DAY now, all cops are complicit. They protect their own, allow each other to hide behind the shield, and harass citizens on a regular basis. When the mayor of New York called police out on their behavior, instead of responding like mature adults, they turned their backs » 3/21/15 10:10pm 3/21/15 10:10pm

To be fair, most sci-fi shows don't take good advantage of their premise in their first season since they're busy laying it out, and the show's efforts to do so were undermined by fox airing it out of order (If you watch it in the right order there is an entire macro-plot that develops in the background). » 3/20/15 5:07pm 3/20/15 5:07pm

This is an abusive relationship plain and simple. It's irresponsible as fuck to suggest keeping it together because of a "commitment" when he's clearly at his wit's end enough to write that letter.

I hate to be that person but if a man was doing all that stuff to a woman, everyone with any common sense would be… » 3/19/15 11:12pm 3/19/15 11:12pm

So basically this scum did the same exact thing Zoe Quinn did (abuse the DCMA and a copyright takedown process to fraudelently silence a critic), but when the violator isn't kotaku's favorite social justice soapbox it gets a full article dealing the ins and outs of the project? » 3/19/15 9:06pm 3/19/15 9:06pm
