So when I say "my girl" it's misogynistic but when my girl says "my man" she's alright? .

You didnt say that, you said "my women", plural. And no, its a two way street.

I don't say it as if they are my property, it's a short way of saying "my possible love interests who are female...". But if you want to ignore context and strawman then alright I guess.

You didnt supply a context beyond what had already been said

Also you have no idea how I treat my girl or anything else really, she is a bit submissive but I make sure we are 50/50 when it comes to opinions, decisions, and so on. If that is being misogynistic then so be it, we are both happy and it seems like the only person not happy with the current state of things is you

You are the one strawmanning it (nice to see you using the buzzword of the day, even if you arent quite using it in the right contextm, but nm eh). Dont recall your personal life coming into it in any of your previous comments, and I dont think any one cares about it now either.

Wait, this isn't a joke but actually a thing?

The issue with the, "We don't care she's a girl! We care that her opinions suck!" line is that many of those responses to her opinions, experiences, etc, are colored by her gender. Women in the gaming space are frequently subjected to mansplaining, belittling, and assumptions of incompetence or inadequacy in the gaming world due to their presumed lack of ability or experience in geekdom. Were Mintchip male, I very much doubt we'd have anything near this much discussion of the hiring.

Wonder why EVE is 96% male?

Because of threads like this, and the chauvinism they represent.

Besides this being a straight up banning bonanza, I'm locking this thread for:

4. Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts that are designed to personally berate or insult another forum user. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community spirit that CCP promote and as such they will not be tolerated.

5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

30. Abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers is prohibited.

CCP operate a zero tolerance policy on abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers. This includes but is not limited to personal attacks, trolling, “outing” of CCP employee or ISD volunteer player identities, and the use of any former player identities when referring to the aforementioned parties.
Our forums are designed to be a place where players and developers can exchange ideas in a polite and friendly manner for the betterment of EVE Online. Players who attack or abuse employees of CCP, or ISD volunteers, will be permanently banned from the EVE Online forums across all their accounts with no recourse, and may also be subject to action against their game accounts.
