GU Comics Weighs in on Australian Cosplay Protest

February 27, 2009 -

GU Comics asks a very legitimate question concerning some Australian gamers' plan to march on Parliament in costume to protest the lack of an R18+ rating Down Under.

As GamePolitics reported yesterday, the "Cosplay for a Cause" rally has been scrubbed. A new event in which gamer protesters will wear everyday clothing is being planned.

GP: Thanks to GamePolitics correspondent Andrew Eisen for catching this one...

Re: GU Comics Weighs in on Australian Cosplay Protest

And thats the reason why we as gamers SHOULDN'T make fools of ourselves.

I know that cosplay is fun and enjoyable, and also a girl dressing up as a guy is fun as well as a guy dressing up as a girl.

But sadly not many people would even understand us, it would be more like the first Gay and Lesdien Mardigra. And NOT in a good way in society's point of view.

Yes we should protest in the front steps of South Australian Parliament house to make our point, but it will be more stronger if we made our point seriously and not just to attract attention.

Re: GU Comics Weighs in on Australian Cosplay Protest

It was always a retarded idea to go to parliament dressed up like an idiot. Who ever thought it was a good idea needs a good slapping. I mean cosplay is fun for some people yeah, but it doesn't exactly convey a serious, mature message now does it? We need a group of mature adult gamers to lead the protest, who are capable of crushing Michael Atkinsons' ignorant dribble. Not a group of flamboyant WoW nerds with an IQ below 50....

Infophile(cont'd) their audience of almost-entirely-non-bankers?07/31/2015 - 1:15pm
InfophileIt's frankly an implausible belief that the original title was meant to offend gamers. It appeared on Gamasutra, which targets the industry, not gamers. If you saw a title like "Bankers are dead" on this site, would you think they were trying to offend...07/31/2015 - 1:15pm
Infophile@Big Perm: I agree; calling out hypocrisy within your own ranks is a good thing07/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Big PermI definitely agree that yes, the titles alone were meant to provoke people who identify as gamers. It also worked07/31/2015 - 12:59pm
Infophile@Matt: I'm talking about people I've seen on this site arguing that the title alone justified the reaction to the article, that it was deliberately offensive. Not even a new YouTube video by a risen-from-the-dead Albert Einstein would change that.07/31/2015 - 12:52pm
Big PermI just didn't care for the wording. I don't think it should be changed or anything.07/31/2015 - 12:46pm
james_fudgeIf I am misunderstanding your point expand on it in the comments and i'll talk about it in there.07/31/2015 - 12:23pm
james_fudgeIt's clearly part of a broader internal fight against people like Sargon.07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
james_fudgeBig perm: fair point. On the other hand that's its origins and not saying that in some way would be a disservice to our readers07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
Andrew EisenMatt - What is the argument that Sargon supposedly debunked?07/31/2015 - 12:06pm
Big PermThat said, I don't think it's a shit article.07/31/2015 - 11:22am
Big PermNot really a fan of "one individual aligned with Gamer Gate attempted to shame a prominent figure within its own ranks". It should be encouraged that we call out hipocracy, and instead I feel that shines a negative light on such a thing.07/31/2015 - 11:21am
james_fudgeI'm curious what our GG-aligned readers think of our Necromancer story? Was it fair? Unfair?07/31/2015 - 11:11am
E. Zachary KnightMatt, That the whole stink over the articles is a bunch of BS? Because that is the only part that is BS.07/31/2015 - 8:29am
MattsworknameOh btw, info, are you still refering to that "gamers are dead" argument? Cause sargon of akkad just did a 3 video series that proves it's based on bullshit07/31/2015 - 6:46am
MattsworknameInfo: thats what you call clickbaiting to the highest level07/31/2015 - 5:43am
InfophileAnd here's why you never judge an article by its title: "Microsoft Gives All Windows 10 Users the Finger" - http://www.themarysue.com/microsoft-windows-10-middle-finger/ (I'm looking at you, people still mad about "Gamers are Dead")07/31/2015 - 5:09am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-07-31/khan-academy-s-sal-khan-studio-1-0-full-show-7-30- not game related, but this is a good interview.07/30/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkFinally, I never misspelled Chipman's name. So, feel free to try your luck again, but pick an opponent you can beat.07/30/2015 - 8:32pm
Goth_Skunk@Technogeek: I paid for the experience of the seat, and upon completion of the movie determined that the extra for the seat wasn't worth it. Additionally, your opinion is not law. You thinking the movie is crap does not make it so.07/30/2015 - 8:31pm
