Yeah, this is really stupid.

 

People have different opinions. That's just facts. If you can't deal with that, you're in for a shock when you, y'know, grow up and become an actual man. If that ever happens.

i was with you at the title.. but then the whole post body was just baseless and childish..they should just stop her/him from giving video reviews.  his voice is so boring and seems so uninterested that i was about to fall asleep watching the video review.  aside from that, carolyn should refrain from giving personal and extreme reviews based on his subculture.

They shouldn't stop her from doing anything. She is entitled to opinions. Remember - freedom of speech is a real thing. We might not agree, but that doesn't mean she shouldn't be entitled to voice her opinion, no matter how baseless or worthless it might seem. 

 

Without freedom of speech, somewhere like this very forum could be shut down very easily, seeing as how it's filled with hate-filled an libelous content... like this thread, for example. 

 

Boys will be boys, though. And men will laugh and point at the boys as they embarrass themselves.

It's stupid saying someone should be fired just because of their opinion! Especially when their opinion does no harm to anyone.

Most ridiculous thing I've ever read.

 

Yeh let's sack someone because she has an opinion that is different to my own. Totally see the logic in that....

 

are you really shocked that a woman might have a few thoughts about the way women are dipicted in the game? ,,

 

The review that I read wasn't even a bad review! just pointed out a few opinions added onto it about certain things!

The review was very subjective when it got to the parts about misogyny and torture, but that's hardly a case for concern, she's just not a very good reviewer because she lets her personal feelings about certain issues get in the way.

 

"GTA V has little room for mares except to portray them as strippers, prostitutes, long-suffering wives, humorless fillyfriends and goofy, new-age feminists we’re meant to laugh at."

 

Guess we're ignoring Sue Murry then. The fact is this is ignoring that GTA is a parody on real life, and as the feminist movement loves to keep reminding us women in real life tend to be portrayed in the aforementioned manner, therefore they're going to be like that in GTA except taken to an extreme, like everything in GTA.

 

She said on twitter yesterday that everything else was satire, but the issue with women was "glorying in misogyny" or something to that effect.  Thing is a few years ago GTA was apparently glorifying violence, the misogyny issue is simply the flavour of the month that people use to pick faults with anything, by the time GTA VI comes out it'll be something else, as is the way with things. 

 

Another person to go banging on about the misogyny was Graham Linehan (writer of Father Ted, Black Books and the IT Crowd), he also said the writers of GTA were bad writers who thought they knew satire, and that nothing in GTA was "real" satire.  So this just helps to prove my point about this whole issue being a passing thing, people will just jump on the bandwagon in an attempt to get their voices heard, best thing we can do is just ignore them as they're incapable of being heard in any other way. 

 

Edit: Just to be clear, I don't think misogyny itself is a passing thing, more this current trend to see it everywhere that is a passing trend.

The review was a joke yes, 9.0 wasn't the issue, but the reasoning behind it was . But to fire someone over it is a bit childish and stupid. Especially when it's a "video game" review. The judge who scored the Mayweather Alvarez fight a draw should get fired though. Would be more than happy to sign a petition for that lol

Trying to ruin someone's career because they gave a game 9/10 is absurd and actually quite sick.

 

Shame on you if you've signed it.

A shemale gave the game a 9 because it doesn't make females look like a super gender?

I honestly feel sorry for her. The number of disgusting, revolting, abhorrent insults I witness on the Gamespot review video on YouTube, and on the Gamespot site make me truly sad. And now people are petitioning for her to be fired. This is completely pathetic and ridiculous. Anyone who even considers this is either mentally ill or are missing the chromosomes necessary for logic and reasoning. Many of you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Who is this Carolyn Petit?

 

Do you also have a link to the review in question?  I would like to read what she is complaining about.

This is some childish bullsh*t, for real. Is it a biased review? I don't think so. It's a valid concern regarding the GTA series, and it echoes the sh*tty sentiment of Dan Houser when he explained why there aren't female protagonists. It's true, GTA's never had strong female characters, just really crappy ones. And yes, while the series has misogynistic undertones, maybe it's time to stop taking that sort of bullsh*t from a game dev... maybe even enact change via reviews.

I don't agree with her review, but that doesn't mean she should be fired. I'm a white male living in the United States, my background gives me a different perspective then a transgendered women. The game may sh*t on women, but I don't care because I don't belong in that demographic. I'm not being rude, it's just fact. Most reviews are bullsh*t anyway, the only review I care about is my own.
