If you were to say one thing to the people of tumblr who think 4chan is the scum of the internet, what would you say?

Saying 4chan is the scum of the internet is like calling your mother Hitler for making you come home at curfew.


It’s not only insulting to your mother it’s insulting to Hitler because of all the work he put into becoming that infamous.  

Most of 4chan is supportive of this project because you guys seem to be reasonable and open-minded, and because of the trouble you've had from the kind of 'activists' they've been warning about for years. However, a lot of anons are worried that you're just the same, i.e, you think all white men are 'privileged oppressors', you aren't open to criticism and debate, you have a problem with games that appeals to males (Dragon's Crown?), etc etc. I don't think you do, but can you reassure others?

My general rule of thumb is, if more women create games, then the industry and the culture will have a better understanding of what makes a good game for women. That statement implies that women and feminists haven’t discovered the perfect game for women.


Many women like Dragon Crown and love the art style, many men don’t like it because they see it as sexist. Both views are valid, and I feel that no one should be forced to play Dragon Crown, but I feel that it is not enough of a public threat that anyone should be forced not to. Especially when it’s clearly rated for an audience.

I just want to make this clear, if you are a woman who cares deeply about gender politic and you liked Dragon Crown, I don’t give a fuck. I do care if you are not being given the opportunity to make the next Dragon Crown.

So let me get this straight. 4chan designs a character for you guys and everyone is praising them for it. They even claim it was THEM who designed it TOGETHER. Yet among their hivemind not one person thought of making the character a minority, a differently abled person, or a member of the lgbt community such as a trans person. And we're supposed to think they're all nice people now? Am I in le-le land?

We are running a contest for exactly that at http://www.thefineyoungcapitalists.com/SNlessInfo

"4chan paid for it & made the character. Maybe put your money where your mouth is and donate to get your own character in it? Or does the person in question just not even care about feminism and will find anything to whine and bitch about?" - Alex Hall (‘Jadusable’)

I have this knife - Admiral Cain’s/Kendra Shaw’s from “RAZOR”.  It’s a good knife.  They’re long out of production and totally sold out world-wide.  :(  Boker Magnum Cosmos RY-225 Side-lock with pakkawood handle.  Try to find one.  Dare you.  You’ll fail, lol.

Protest. We’re going to have a protest.

Accusations of corruption and censorship in popular video game media have spread all over the internet, with no solution or action being taken. The only way to get the answers we want and the only way to create a productive dialogue about the massive issues…

So these three were at a bar watching Zoe getting “hacked”, and Adam Sessler tweets this out:

If you look at Alex’s laptop, you see 4chan (from the color scheme, it looks like its /v/).

Then this post pops up on /v/ a little bit later;

Look at the “delete” button —- its obvious that…
