Yes, I wonder if the Donald actually realizes that 84 million people now know what a wanker he actually is.

Nexon's misogyny is no game

On its corporate site Nexon claims that “We are a global Entertainment Company providing differentiated and high-quality games.”

Quite frankly, after the sacking of one of their voice actresses for wearing a t-shirt stating, “GIRLS Do Not Need A Prince”, I think that the corporate profile should be amended to read that they “provide high-quality games and high-level misogyny”.

Apparently, the -- and I use this term loosely -- "gentlemen” in Korea complained and the company fired her instead of doing the correct and honorable thing of telling those that complained to go stick their heads down the toilet, wait an hour and then flush. But no, the company upheld misogyny.



The t-shirt slogan is correct. GIRLS really don’t need that prince, they should receive respect and equality.

But let’s take this a bit further and grind the heel in...

In a Psychology Today article, “Why Women Are The Superior Gender,” Clifford N Lazarus PhD states that “it is theoretically possible for women to reproduce without any male genetic contribution (i.e. sperm), while it is impossible for men to procreate without women.” [parthenogenesis - reproduction without fertilization]

It was announced in 2004 that sperm has been made from human bone marrow, so it has been speculated that it is beginning to look like, if a woman chose to do this, sperm from her bone marrow could be used to fertilize another woman’s egg. How viable these sperm are is not yet known - they look like sperm but do they contain the necessary genetic material? Time will tell. But, just think...if the hurdles can be scientifically overcome, the relevance of men could be reduced to at best their entertainment value (if any).

Hey, maybe Nexon could create a game whose highest scorer actually scored from time to time.

======

And as a side:

If you child is playing one of Nexon's games through its mobile games or online portals do a bit of site blocking until the company gets it head out of it corporate ass. Here is a partial list:

Atlantic Online
Combat Arms
Dragon Nest
Dirty Bomb
First Assualt
Law Breakers
Mabinogi
MapleStory
Riders of Icarus
Vindicates
Dungeon & Fighter
DomiNations
MapleStory Pocket

If you would like to see a full list of their game titles:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexon

Maybe a letter to some of their partners like Lego Mobile, Warner Bros asking why they support this mindset might be a good idea too.

And if your family investment portfolio contains shares of their stock dump it or better yet raise a question or two at the stockholder's meeting.

Surprise package

So, this is what I've been up to - my boy needs new socks because he keeps ripping holes into the ones I've already made him. One of these is for me.

It is such a bummer that I have to be out and about early this morning. It is dog rabies clinic in my burb and I’m working it. I would just love to have the time to reply to this one in length:

Republicans will not air February debate on NBC
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-34683871

Must admit that at first I could hardly sit at my desk for laughing. These people are all running for the highest elected position in the US and they can’t answer a few questions on issues that concern all of us? Oh please, is this a juvenile playground stomp you feet tantrum? Partly, but I get the feeling that they don’t have answers to the very important questions about the issues in this upcoming election and are trying to cover up their stupidity and lack of substance.

Shameful!

Have a good one! Gotta go give shots to dogs.

I worked a bit on a home improvement project on Sunday. I open a new tube of Liquid Nails and thought I had pierced the membrane. When it was not advancing out of the tube I gave it a good squeeze and ended up having to wash my hair. LOL! Any who, got that done and have to wait a bit and then on to the next phase of the project.

More of the second rectangle quilt.
