    I didn't say you in particular, it's just some of the earlier posts seemed to imply that Mingus was stating that this game is sexist, when he wasn't.

    I was using the term 'bitch', as in a female, I often refer to women as bitches, I wasn't implying that the female who has the problem is a bitch, I was just referring to her as 'bitch'.

    If you're referring to the Resi Evil 5 incident, then I read everything that she had to say, thought about it, read it again, then commented appropriately.

Also, factor in that Zelda isn't exactly "harmless" and that whilst she needs to be resuced in some games, she also fights along side you. She is therefore far from the "innocent, incompetent girl" that you may be able to read into with Princess Peach.
    I only made the comparison, because, after all that happened with the Resi Evil 5 incident, my conclusions were that her judgements didn't have enough backing, and in this case, if anyone were to claim that SSBB is sexist, they wouldn't have much ground to stand on. So the comparison was in the sense that in both cases, the arguments for racism and sexism, were not worthy.

    I disagree. They were saying that they couldn't see how it could be considered sexist.

    I was using the term 'bitch', as in a female, I often refer to women as bitches, I wasn't implying that the female who has the problem is a bitch, I was just referring to her as 'bitch'.
    Oh right. So it was not meant in a derogatory way. Kinda like when people refer to their female partners as their "ho" or "old ball and chain", only you say it about all women.

    Just a question: Does that actually work for you? I know about the whole "treat 'em mean to keep 'em keen" method, but I would think you wouldn't get very secure women that way...

    If you're referring to the Resi Evil 5 incident, then I read everything that she had to say, thought about it, read it again, then commented appropriately.
    It was more about this issue: Sexism in Smash Bros.

    I only made the comparison, because, after all that happened with the Resi Evil 5 incident, my conclusions were that her judgements didn't have enough backing, and in this case, if anyone were to claim that SSBB is sexist, they wouldn't have much ground to stand on.

    True. But then nobody (to my knowledge) has claimed that it's sexist. So my original point, why provide a counter complaint to a non-existent one?..

    Anyway, I think this thread has died...

    I disagree with that - too an extent. It could be considered that the earlier posts were implying that Mingus was saying that this game is sexist. That is why I made my initial point that this topic should not be thought about unless somebody actually did complain, as some people may quickly jump to a conclusion in that Mingus was saying that this game is sexist. However, it could also be believed that they were just saying that they couldn't see how it could be considered sexist - it depends on the person...if they were just saying this then I apologise, but since we don't know then it's a matter of opinion.

    Precisely.

    Well you think wrong. It works when I want it to, it depends on how it is said. The majority of the time it is said in a joking fashion, but sometimes not, depending on the situation.

    )
    Because I didn't counter this made up argument, nor did I say that I would counter any argument before listening to hear what she said. Again, in my initial post, I was simply saying that this topic needn't be discussed unless somebody were to actually complain.

    Exactly, that is why I had originally said that there was no reason for this topic to be discussed. I had never once provided a counter complaint to this non-existent one.

    Lol, ok everyone. I simply wanted to bring some political and possibly interesting topics to the board for people to discuss rather than a hundred threads about what the roster would look like. I didn't even really believe myself when making the thread but I thought people might enjoy something different. don't worry though, I won't do it again, lol jk.

    Fair enough, though I probably wouldn't have picked those few subject areas.

    Now the concepts of "cartoon violence" and drawing parellels of Smash Bros with Tom and Jerry, and then comparing it to "adult violence", may be a good topic for discussion: Why is some violence okay for children to watch and not others? If we watch a cartoon cat hit a cartoon mouse with a big mallet, why can't we let them watch a real life person hit another person with a real mallet?

    Should consequences be shown of each? Is the tone influential? And why are we okay with violence when it's non-fictional? (e.g. news broadcasts of documentaries).

    Well it really depends, when that real person hits another with a mallet will his head flatten and then be fine a second later. Will he act dizzy and then continue to chase after the person who hit him, and will his arms and legs twitch while the real blood seeps from his head and drips from the mallet. there's a big difference.

    True, but shouldn't we be teaching children that violence has consequences? Surely we're doing them an injustice to portray episodes of violence without consequences?

    Of course, any of that assumes a "monkey see, monkey do" idea (hyperdermic syringe model, whereby it's falsely assumes that people are passively influenced by media texts). Are adults merely desensitised to violence or is it more about the need for a resistence to inspiration? (heck, after watching old Kung Fu movies, most people are inspired to recreate the actions they've just seen).

    In a nutshell, what is it that makes children unworthy of watching serious (depictions of) violence that adults "enjoy"? Same goes for horror films/games/books.

    I think it's a case of self discipline - the ability to stop yourself from recreating violence (no matter what its form is) that inspires you. That's not to say that all violence has a destructive inspiration (it also has a provides fear as inspiration, as well as morally and educationally inspiration).

    A child should be slowly exposed to violence, sex, terror, and other types of extreme viewing. Depending on the age, they may not fully understand what it is they are seeing. What is good and what is wrong. I for instance attempted to act an impropriate scene from a movie with my baby sitters daughter at the age of five. I had no understanding of what it was. I also had no understanding of why I was punished for it. The way in which children are exposed to these things are important as well. Children really do need to see most of these things (with an exception to sex.) Children need to be prepared for the world to come, sheltered children see nothing their wholes lives and are then tossed into society with no understanding of social boundaries or real life situations.
