Warning: this contains a long winded opinion.
Now the reason I’m posting this is because maybe something come out of it. I doubt it will, but as I the guy says “humanity is thick” and I’m pretty thick person when it comes to wanting to make the world a better place. I’m sure most of us do. And I feel like the message here is a good one that should be shared.
I’ve just seen enough of this sort of thing myself from all the drama. especially here. I know I’m coming off as being preachy here, and I have fallen victim to follow the shouting as well, and i try to not get into that with side or no side, but it’s just I feel as if this is true. Most people I have listened to are people who just want to sit down and talk about the issue, and maybe change it in the future. The best quote i heard was actually by yahtzee croshaw:
"Both sides should be allowed to present there conclusion, and present the facts that lead them to that conclusion, And then everyone should just digest all of that. And if you have faith that your facts are true, what are you so afraid of?"…
And this more civil way about going about issues may make people see the other perspective, because being calm and presenting you argument in sensible way they’ll be more open to your side. You probably won’t change their mind but then we might minimize some generalization of the side, and maybe we might just get to some middle ground.
This doesn’t apply just to the games industry of course, but I think most people would know that. I just wanted to state that for the post’s sake.
ah but enough of my reasons, just watch the video, it can explain better than I can.
Just some food for thought. :3
