Recently Frost posted this article at his site in response to Paul Elam’s seeming swipe at game, and even the mighty Chateau (Roissy, Heartiste) – read Frost’s post where he asks Elam for an engagement on the topic, a topic I find at least interesting enough to ask my readers what they think.
If you’ve read the articles or not, the issue is this: there are two opposing forces trying to battle feminism, or at the very least, point out how damaging it has been on our society – those two forces are game blogs like this one, and Men’s Rights Issues blogs. Elam’s stance is not new with the MRA crowd, quite often discounting game, for whatever reason, while game bloggers usually appreciate what MRA’s are saying against feminism. But there is a divide, and on the surface it seems like there shouldn’t be, but human’s are complex.
My honest opinion, one group wants pussy and one doesn’t, or doesn’t want to play the game that has gone on since human’s stood upright, in order to get pussy. It would seem they are taking too hard line of a stance, much like feminism, and is only it’s polar opposite, which would do just as much damage as feminism would. Our time can be defined as polarizing.
So I’m asking you, what do you think? Is this battle lines drawn in the sand, where the two groups have to take their stance on, or is there common ground? Will the MRA’s ever accept game? Do you think one side has more of a chance to succeed than the other or do we need to join forces? Do you even care?
I leave it up to you.
