    8-Bit Philosophy: SJWs ruining your precious 1980s video game memories one week at a time

    This is all 2-3 years old, but I just found it.

    A group called "Wisecrack" released a series of videos from 2015-16 called "8-Bit Philosophy", which could have been really cool/interesting, but instead they chose to pander to the SJW left.

    They use beloved 1980s video game imagery, combined with fairly realistic-looking 8-bit-style graphics of their own, to teach us all how to be better, more understanding SJWs and socialists (seriously).

    While the videos are well done from a nostalgia and technical standpoint, the themes and lessons they're pushing are pure garbage.

    Check out this one, where we learn that there's no inherent difference between male and female brains, and that the fairly distinct gender differences are simply a result of an oppressive social construct:




    I haven't seen Pac-Man blasphemed like this since that awful "Pixels" movie was thrust upon an unsuspecting public.

    Here's a 3-minute piece bashing capitalism as an evil, unhealthy construct of the 20th Century Protestant religious right:





    ... while engaging in capitalism by posting it on YouTube, on a channel with 2.2 million subscribers, and getting paid for it.

    Oh, the SJW irony!

    For someone who complains about SJWs being butt hurt about everything; you often times come across as being butt hurt about everything SJWs do.

    I mean is this really thread worthy? Do we need a Druff bitching about SJWs containment thread?

    Sjw is actually hurting us as a fair and decent and tolerant society...

    There was less racism and more true equality before it came of prominence...

    Now ita all hatred and violence and people seekung privlidge and equality of outcome not opportunity(as if we can regulate that either or should)

    I just watched both of those videos, and if you came away with the feeling that either one of them had any SWJ agenda, you need to check your own bias.

    Both were nothing more than informative.


    Wake up, try to be honest with yourself, and grow as a human being.

    I saw the first video. If any of it were actually true you would see a lot more variety among gender roles across time and place, as most human societies have been mostly isolated through time, and hence variance would have created a wide array of gender roles.

    The fact that gender roles are pretty much immutable across time and place (unless you want to nitpick little details like whether girls shave their armpit hair) is a estimate to their biological basis.

    The page is called Wisecrack.

    It's jokes.

    Goes to show how out of the loop the Right is and how easily they can be triggered.

    Are you sure about that? The video did not come off as satirical at all. I understand the name of the YouTube channel it was on, but nothing about the video itself suggests any comedic aim.

    I agree that getting worked up over a standard radical leftist clip on gender norms superimposed over Metroid is not something I would do, but maybe Druff is just real nostalgic about Metroid and it does bother him. Shrug.

    Un an unrelated note when I am bored at work I sometimes like to watch Youtube clips of guys easily breezing through NES games I could never beat as a child. Kid Icarus and Ghosts and Goblins are 2 that come to mind.

    I just watched them both again, and you are high as fuck, and the one bringing politics into a very complicated issue.


    Gender and sexuality rolls are a very complicated subject that you can't learn about by watching fox news.

    Your in luck. I was paying attention in high school biology, so I can probably help you out with any questions you may have about this complicated subject.
