They’re Attractive, They’re Women, They Play Games Live Online. But They’re Not ‘Camwhores.’

Kotaku - Back when Kotaku wrote about a troll that targeted women, there was one critical word that kept popping up in responses: camwhore.
Also curious: the women in the videos streamed themselves casually playing video games, and they took donations. It was as if some folks were saying, no, the harassment these women face is actually warranted: look at them. Look! They're "using" their womanly wiles to "force" men to give them money. They're not even gamers. They're camwhores.

Let it be. They deserve it. (Culture)

I am so glad Kotaku took time away from jerking off to Omegle GIFs posted to 4chan to write this insightful article but well.....yeah...I don't know how this is even journalism. Trashy, sloppy, unethical writing. Look, guys I get you love contributing, but can't we get rid of this site's garbage articles? It's getting more and more ridiculous everyday.

Kotaku's Future =

Kotaku has a pretty good rating on this site because they spam so much content some of it is bound to be good, not all of it, but some of it at least.

In this regard, I don't think this article really helps anyone as it induced more cringing than anything.

Wow. What a crap title. Just for pandering to that immature perspective, I know I will get nothing from this.

Small minded as hell, and frankly just stupid. I don't usually dig this expression, but f*ck it: get out more, and go talk to a woman ffs.

What do you expect, most women are like that anyway, hardly any ladies around these days.

if you are watching woman that play games and giving them free money just because you think you are gonna be there boy friend or something then you are really dumb and are part of the problem of the world.

She is gonna spend that money and go on dates with some hot guy who doesnt watch her streams while you slave away working from 9-5 all week for low pay. Stop being a bunch of dumb dumbs guys.

How about you buy some games for yourself with that money and stop letting people get ahead of life in front of you when you are already behind in life. What are you guys freakin doing?
you might as well go to a adult movie site with that cash dudes.

People in general are the problem. I don't like people pointing out one gender as if they are better than the next.

For instance you say men who give women money are stupid and bad maybe they are but I think the women accepting that money are just as horrible or else they wouldn't feel the need to use someone and take their money.

It goes both ways, people love to act like men are the problem but it is the fact neither genders are any different that never changes anything.

Just as many tools who hand women money for hopes of getting laid, there are just as many women who want nothing but money in order to ever even get laid they are called gold diggers and don't act like they don't exist.

As I said it goes both ways people in general are bad on both sides of the fence. It only adds more to the stupidity that some people honestly think only one or the other are capable of doing any wrong.

Giving money to women just because they are streaming themselves playing games? That's almost as bad as the story I read where people paid some ridiculously fat woman to eat on cam.. Sadly I'm not even making this up, can go google that story. What has become of my fellow man? Some right pathetic people out there.
