The Myth of Toxicity

From Discord:

Just read it, nice essay
Explains why there's so much bleating about toxicity around Overwatch
More effeminate playerbase

CULT|icycalm
Also, larger playerbase

CULT|Saf
Yep

CULT|icycalm
Per capita, I am sure there is more bleating in Rust
It's far more masculine, therefore far more "toxic"

CULT|Saf
I don't play MOBAs but my friends who play 'em religiously moan constantly about "toxicity" too
Not sure why

CULT|icycalm
I think it's teams screaming at randoms they use to fill up the team
All team games have this issue. The teams are dysfunctional, because they are made of randoms

CULT|Saf
That makes sense

In that server no one actually plays the game, they just all stand around wearing pink pussy hat's and :I'm with her" t-shirts while sobbing and throwing temper tantrums. The only competitive multiplayer is a match called "who's the biggest victim."

The fact that on the internet a simple digital button enables you to mute/block/report is already fantastic. The only thing I regret is publishers or platforms not having had automatically censored and blocked users using terms that are clearly illegal (at least in civilised country who understand the concept of freedom and it's limits).

So fuck your degenerate first-world bourgeois problems of "toxicity".
