The developer of Call Of Duty has said that COD players aren’t real gamers because they rarely try other franchises
I’m laughing so hard oh my god imagine how they must feel knowing he thinks that about them
Fake Gamer Boys
oh this tastes so fucking good
oh, but he is right.
Why is this delicious? Do you really think it’s the casual CoD audience checking your nerd credentials at the door? It’s not. If anyone, it’s the guy getting wicked and inexplicable schadenfreude over those CoD phonies being called out by their creator (even though in all likelihood they don’t care).
After reading about gender-bias and conversation dominance in the classroom, I asked for a peer to observe a physics class I was teaching and keep track of the discussion time I was giving to various students along with their race and gender. In this exercise, I knew I was being observed and I was trying to be extra careful to equally represent all students―but I STILL gave a disproportionate amount of discussion time to the white male students in my classroom (controlling for the overall distribution of genders and races in the class). I was shocked. It felt like I was giving a disproportionate amount of time to my white female and non-white students.
Even when I was explicitly trying, I still failed to have the discussion participants fairly represent the population of the students in my classroom.
This is a well-studied phenomena and it’s called listener bias. We are socialized to think women talk more than they actually do. Listener bias results in most people thinking that women are ‘hogging the floor’ even when men are dominating.
