After Riot Games, developers of League of Legends, announced their new initiative to be more inclusive towards women they may have ended up violating basic civil rights for men at PAX West 2018. This is due to their cordoning off presentations for only women and gender nonconforming. I also discuss the tirade of one Riot employee in particular and the events that caused two staff members to be fired for violating Riot’s Social media Policy.

You should at least try to read some books and learn before talking about socialism, communism, meritocracy and capitalism. Your ignorance is baffling....

we have reach a point where hiring people who are the most qualified for the job is considered a racist,homophobe and misogynist statement

What baffles me is that there are people out there who really believe excluding men is going to promote equality.

"Women only meeting" Good job, you're becoming the very thing you fought against.

Once again, we have to come back and discuss the culture war in video games

"When one group has too much and one has too little, some must be taken from the group that has too much." So that's why Riot was terrible at balancing their game.

Isn't it fun how Riot Games intending to work against toxicity has become so toxic.

These people aren't gamers, Sid. They don't care about gaming as a hobby, they want to use it as a platform to spread their ideology. Period. That's all they EVER use anything for.

Getting in there is easy for a straight guy. Just say, "I identify as a lesbian."

sigh You can't legally bar people from a public space based on gender. Riot Games as a company is surely gonna tank for trying to force they're hate fueled politics in an open convention... surely?
Now that i think about it 'the organizer's of PAX must have a comment on this situation.

Well said, Sid. Equal means equal, not 'payback', and demanding respect without giving it in return isn't equal.

"began the search for a Chief Diversity Officer" The mere fact that this is a thing makes me feel like the battle is already lost.
