    Women, even more so than men, need to be thoroughly vetted.

    Why should they be more than males? Is it okay to let in some radical feminist men only because they are men? I think we as a society should get rid of creating quotas based on gender, race, social class etc and just hire whoever is best suited for the role. Therefore, every single one should be vetted as thoroughly.

    My follow up question, what about females starting their own video game developing company. In the worst case, they are batshit crazy feminist and only wanna make games about preaching about an agenda. Is there someone who should stop them? Or are they free to start their own company? If your answer is that they should be monitored and limited then you can’t say you support equal opportunity

    Women have a harder time understanding what makes the games industry tick. Again, can you imagine a female led or mostly female studio making something like Doom Eternal, Duke Nukem 3D, Serious Sam, and so many other similar games?

    Agreed, and then you will find that dramatically more men are hired than women, because women in general just don’t get it. There are rare exceptions, but that is all.

    Of course they can start their own companies, but given the fact that most of the gamers who keep the industry afloat are men, I could see them going out of business real fast, because men aren’t going to find their games appealing.

    Well.. They may not have been at the “for front” but there has always been women in gaming. Go look at any old photo’s from the 8bit nintendo day’s you will definitely see women in there along with the men coding ect. That being said I see a good amount of women in the development of Doom 2016 & Doom Eternal and those game’s are fire. There not all woke plus there are plenty of beta cuck males to go along with the woke females developing games out there. I’m just thinking how they trashed wolfenstein 2.. So sad concidering the graphics & game play of wolfenstein 2 are killer but the story is beyond cringe af. Another franchise ruined. But I can see where this topic would come up because it seems like whenever someone gives a woman full control over something be it game or movie. They always seem to be pushing an agenda of some kind.

    The problem is not women.  The issue is radical feminists.  Like most leftist movements, they start with some good intentions but once they gather some power they decide to use that power for their own selfish purposes.

    So what you have here are feminists forcing their way into spaces and then telling everyone else in that space to get out.  They essentially colonize industries.  But only the lucrative ones.   You won’t see a feminist push for more women in construction, landscaping or garbage collection.

    At the end of the day, like in almost everything, it’s about the money.

    then let it happen naturally. Let the developers choose who they see fits the best. If/when they choose more males based on their merits, so be it and it’s fair. But trying to put regulations to purposefully limit women from entering the competition is just traight up wrong and takes away their freedom to choose where to compete for a spot. It’s an insane idea and a step back in progressing the society in my opinion.

    Of course they can start their own companies, but given the fact that most of the gamers who keep the industry afloat are men, I could see them going out of business real fast, because men aren’t going to find their games appealing.

    here you finally get my point and agree with it. Don’t set any limitations for women, let them try if they want. If their project fais, it fails. But let’s say if they manage to create a ”super woke” game that actually blows up and becomes successful, so be it. Just screw the regulations and quotas, that’s just the same identity politics starbucks did when they only had a certain amount of male workers allowed.

    it’s exactly like @Vknid says. With the same logic about regulations, why don’t we limit the number of males in schools because they have a way higher chance of being school shooters. That’s just dumb dumb.

    This is linked to western society’s issue of further divide and refusing to listen to the other side.

    People have stopped talking and started shouting, than demanding and when someone tries to speak out they get shouted down and silenced.

    This breeds an incestuous build up where you surround yourself with only the people you agree with, yes men telling you that your view is right even if your flawed or wrong.

    Society needs other view point’s or we become ignorant & blind to mistakes & failings.

    As for the industry some went woke willingly, others bowed down in submission to the far leaning ravenous voices shouting at them.

    We can’t meet shouting and demands with the same but use calmer rational yet clear responses.

    If a game is bad than clearly and calmly lay it out than say “Because of these reasons i can’t financially support this company at this time, the work just isn’t good enough”.

    When we get worked up they use those reactions against us everytime, the companies won’t stop until it’s financially untenable to continue supporting radical demands.

    I know it’s hard, we grew so attached to the movie’s, game’s & tv series, they became our culture but we can’t follow them down the radical behaviour, if we did than we’d become them.

    Amen.

    Together the people have power, divided we are but sheep to be corralled as the elites please.

    Yes, i’m a woman and i don’t agree with gender separations. If we look on esports histoty and it’s popularity, then we’ll realise, that one of reasons of it’s growth – equal rules for all genders: wemen may play esports games on the same level with mens. And one of reasons why esports is not an Olympic sport yet – significant male dominance in the industry.
    I believe some day this disbalance will be disappeared. And i’m gonna become a professional esports player to bring that moment closer.
