Personally I can see how certain games with toxic communities might also affect the work culture at specific companies. I personally think EA is fine, but wondering if other companies have this issue given all the stuff going on at riot recently.
- Microsoft TrumpWinsRiot is an SJW company so “sexism” is subjective. I’ve met many people from Riot. They hire tons of far left Twitter activist type people at that company who would take a guy saying “you look nice today” to a woman as a sexist comment and get angry they can’t sue their company over it.
- MS isn’t much different these days. Currently there’s a huge “scandal” over an email thread from a women@MS DL highlighting stories about harassment at the company and demanding action. But if you’re a guy, you’re going to have a hard time finding this thread and just get told “that type of behavior won’t be tolerated here” with no reference to what is being alleged.May 7 0
- Unity mambo5The people experiencing sexism at Riot are not just people trying to be overly PC or far left Twitter activists. I heard people talk about women openly and very inappropriately. People would judge women differently on how much of a gamer they were & legitimately question their gamer cred (which was so stupid). More seriously- I also know women whose managers tried to sleep with them, and people who lost their jobs shortly after speaking up about these types of issues.May 8 3
- TrumpWins is a troll account. If you didn’t notice the /s at the end of his post, Riot is not an SJW company. If you’ve ever played League of Legends, that’s what Riot is like, a bunch of 13 year olds trying to sound smart and be edgy online.
- Activision Blizzard / Eng bugehallsI think most men might make off-color jokes because they’re a product of internet culture, but really, most of us are just socially awkward and socially stupid. That includes the women to some extent, but when “normal” people are hired into roles it can be a bit of a culture shock for both sides.
Think this is really the problem with tech in general, I don’t find many people who are racist, sexist, etc. nobody actually, just people who need social adjustment and the solution is probably to meet in the middle between the culture clash
But yeah, i doubt the scope of the whole -ism “problem”, its way blown out of proportion everywhere. Of course, I don’t think arbitration for legitimate sexual harassment claims is a good look either.
