Triggerhappy: How to look smart
5.2K Views|4 Today

(Versión española)

Recently, a popular spanish gaming youtuber started to make videos promoting feminism in games, and repeating the same ideas as Anita sarkeesian, like cultivation theory. You know, the one that has been debunked a miriad times and has no single study to support it. That one.

His fans are now up to arms and he’s receiving a dialectic beating from all directions, with tons of video responses, since most people are not buying his shit. But what is funnier to me is that people apparently didn’t see it coming. They all make comments like “he was not like this before, he has started now because of feminist friends” (and let me tell you, i know some of those friends and they’re the worst pieces of shit in Spain). But the thing is, i saw his videos first time about 4 years ago, and i already called this out, cause i saw it coming a mile away. He was the kind to purposedly use obtuse language and academic terms out of place to look smart, in circumstances where it didn’t belong, and prone to say that “he didn’t agree with Sarkeesian”, to then proceed to agree with her on everything.

I even said, at the time, he was gonna be dangerous, cause this kind of people gather an audience by giving a false appereance of inteligence using terms like “ludonarrative dissonance”, which are ok in some circumstances ( i use the term when talking about psychology with people who understand it), but when used in casual conversation or videogame videos for youngsters are obviously not going to be understood, and are most likelly than not been used to look smart using a term you learned the other day by chance. And when they have that large audience they will proceed to indoctrinate their fanbase with their agenda, since they’ll be willing to accept anything they say. This is not the same as creating a channel ABOUT that topic and gathering an audience who want to hear about that ideology in videogames (like, let’s say, Liana K), this is instead a move intended to take advantage of how people tend to make their favourite youtubers a part of their identity, even considering them friends, and will be willing to believe and excuse anything they say.

It’s fortunate that he hasn’t know how to play this card properly and a big chunck of his audience has rejected it, but he has still satelites that have just swallowed it whole.

In a way, this only further confirms what i always say: Anything that happens in the US, comes to Spain multiplied a few years later. A lot of social justice stuff that appeared in the US 2 or 3 years ago is coming now to Spain with a vengeance, and in the recent months the topic of Gamergate and Women in games have arised to a point it looks like US 2014. Which means that all that has happened in the following 4 years is going to come now HARD.

Sobre la 'teoría de cultivo', la cosa no es que siempre afecte, porque hay casos en los que no pasa, pero es algo que existe y es importante.

It is a classic tactic that already Orwell had denounced in a lingustic essay. Works with any ideology, actually

Buf, no soy de seguir estas cosas porque el tema esta ultradividido (o eres un rojo o eres un facha, vamos), pero algo me ha llegado. ¿Tantisimo se ha liado?

Diría que si. Yo no sigo a casi ningún youtuber español, y he visto mil videorespuestas xD

Pues vaya, ojalá se pudiese hablar del tema con calma y civismo, pero parece ser que no. En fin, gracias por la respuesta, y buen trabajo con la tira.

Me encanta el título del cómic. va en serio. :)

Últimamente estoy empezando a ver recomendaciones en Youtube vídeos españoles sobre temas polémicos en relación al feminismo, censura, el Gamergate, incluso el MGTOW.

Me pregunto cómo acabará el clima en España si nadie puede debatir esas cosas mediante situaciones por "Eh, no soy feminista por esto, esto, y esto," "Debes odiar a las mujeres entonces".

¿Podrías mostrarnos los vídeos para poder nosotros sacar nuestras propias conclusiones?
O
¿Se supone que tengamos que tomar todo lo que dices como un hecho? 

Usar terminología y citas que no conoces (En contextos que por alguna razón no nos muestras.) y hablar de temas de feminismo en vídeo juegos ...no nos dicen nada para saber si son cosas que son inherentes de personas que tratan de sonar mas inteligentes cuando no saben de lo que hablan o tratan de venderte una ideologia.

A mi me parece que mas bien tratas de pintar un precedente de que las personas que hablan de ciertos temas y terminos en vídeo juegos lo hacen porque inherente mente tratan de venderte una ideología. 

Tu dices que esas personas están tratando de indoctrinar a sus audiencias para seguir una agenda.
Entonces ¿Como le llamarias tu a lo que estas haciendo?
Disonancia cognitiva ...¿La conoces?

Yo solo digo que es un mensaje muy ignorante afirmar que alguien utilizando un termino que uno desconoce lo esta haciendo con el propósito de verse mas inteligente cuando la alternativa es tan simple como buscar el significado de ese termino y tratar de entender el contexto en el que se esta usando.

No hay vergüenza el admitir no estar familiarizado con un concepto.
Pero si debería darle vergüenza el deducir que porque el no entiende un concepto entonces este debe ser algo completamente inconsecuente.

El esta tratando de justificar un mensaje muy negativo a su audiencia

Estoy de acuerdo. Supone que el otro no tiene ni idea y se escuda en eso. (Además, la primera vez que este youtuber saca a colación la disonancia ludonarrativa, hace un inciso para explicarla, pero bueno).

Además, es que no entiendo por qué hablar de feminismo en el videojuego supuestamente te hace más "intelectual".

Ludonarative Disonance can be used legitimately - but I'm sure it can be also be twisted for bullshit

It can. Every term can. In the correct context and the correct way.
