Hey everyone, looking for some Kickstarter feedback/opinions here. It looks like we're going to have to do a Kickstarter for the anthology I'm putting together, Skin Crawling Comics. What I'm wondering is what would you all like to see as some of the rewards besides the standard copies of books and commissions from the artists.Thanks in advance!
Sexism and insecurity explain some of the attacks on @femfreq. I suspect the rest stems from the fact that for many enthusiasts, the only familiar methods of talking about videogames are forums and reviews that speak to not to thinking conversation partners but to potential consumers. The tradition of academic cultural criticism is unknown to them entirely, and not knowing what to make of it, they engage it the one way they know how. It's a case of people speaking different languages but confusing the two since, superficially, they sound alike. So just as they circle wagons and ready themselves for war when a review score doesn't speak to their experience or expectation, they confuse constructive critical dialog with a simple assessment of merit. Which is why they fear that Sarkeesian intends to invalidate their interests whereas anyone with a liberal arts education understands that, to the contrary, she stands to enhance their value by taking them seriously. Bridging that language barrier is important, and more so when your audience is as broad as this one.
What about a Men of Fast Karate Swimsuit calendar? I am sure some of us would be willing to pose to help your kickstarter.
Just name the theme "Manly Tears" and do both.
The most revealing thing about this whole ordeal is the sheer number of people who unable to separate "this thing you like has issues" from "this thing you like is unmitigated shit and should be burnt."
If I had them I'd be super scared of them catching on things.
