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

Good job, you're becoming the very thing you fought against.

"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.

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

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

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.

"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.

Ah yes. The "we're trying to be more inclusive, so let's be exclusive" approach. Always the dumbest one.

Nope Naw

"Chief Diversity Officer"

I think that title gave me cancer

No one should be hired based on sex, religion or race. It should be the best person for the job, that’s it.

"Men need to be excluded in the interest of justice, equality and fairness"
He was fired
Guess he really went all out, huh? He really was "excluded" from the company. How ironic! I wonder how he feels about being *fired*.

CedarHunt

Hahahaha, that is amazing. The sheer tone deafness is unbelievable. "We're going to support inclusiveness and diversity by separating and excluding certain people based on their sex."

WHAT?!?

WHAT?!?!

Just think about the implications, let the complete autism really sink in.

They're not only failing to bring about progressive change, they're pushing the clock backwards by a century with the gender roles reversed. What on earth are they thinking?
