Design at Guilded Joined about 8 years ago
Happy to be sharing the new Guilded with everyone. It's been redesigned from the ground up to include a slew of new and improved features.
We're also launching with some of the best esports teams in the scene too, including NYXL, Cloud9, Team Liquid, KSV eSports, Team WE, LGD Gaming, and Golden Guardians.
Hope that it's useful to any of you gamers out there. Feedback welcomed!
I'm not making any presumptions, because I am literally asking for you to tell me what white men, as a demographic, need support for. You keep on telling me I'm being short-sighted and bigoted when you can't even bother answering it for me? Seems unfair.
Let me give you some examples. Do white men need support for: • Feeling antagonized by minorities in their daily life? • Feeling like they're losing their power as a majority? • Feeling that affirmative action is reverse racism?
It's super easy to answer this. I think you'd get a lot more people on your side if you avoided hurling insults in lieu of actual answers.
Holy shit, everyone, we've found him: the one man on earth who is colorblind and free of implicit biases. Put him on the hiring committee of every company, we need to learn from this guy
You injected race into it when the discussion wasn't a matter of it. Scroll up if you've forgotten already.
Says the person that immediately brought his race into the discussion and call others who oppose him hypocritical and short-sighted. Tragic indeed
White men don't need these rulesets because they usually comprise of the majority at any of these tech conferences regardless. You've missed their point. Are you done being offended yet?
First of all, you're putting words into my mouth. And, seriously, tell me what white men, as a collective whole, could use support for. As I said with my domestic abuse example, men can certainly band together to support each other. What do white men need support of? Please don't personally attack me, you're being quite defensive.
It is not rationalizing.
What do white males need support in regards to when they are the majority in mostly any given context?
Women need it for various things. One topical example would be sexual harassment in Silicon Valley. Another could be dealing with biases when you're a woman in STEM.
Minorities need it for various things. My work has a black guild since black people only comprise of less than 5% of the company. They need to support and encourage each other. This obviously is a microcosm of the greater systemic racial issues.
That isn't to say that there aren't men-only groups -- don't lie to yourself that these groups don't exist. Men who are victims of domestic abuse, for example, can certainly have a group and support each other.
And white men, in particular, need support for...?
Try not to mentally frame it as excluding others; rather, see it as people of a demographic trying to support each other. For example, you don't invite those who have never been addicted to speak at AA / NA meetings, because they can't empathize with the struggles that the addicts went through. You want to be empowered by those who have gone through the similar experiences and overcame adversity.

We'll address that, thanks!
