Anonymous asked: As someone who wrote for Gamer Limit very briefly a while back: when I was with them, they had a very strict anti-'list' policy. I am too much of a dingus to work out Google Cache, but knowing those guys, they wouldn't have green-lit it unless it was pitched as a parody of typical gaming site lists. The bits you posted are so outside their usual style that I'd think they did it as a joke. Perhaps they should have been less subtle? Or....admittedly, I could be completely wrong, but I honestly don't see the editors giving the nod to a genuinely sexist list.
It doesn’t fit Gamer Limit’s usual MO, no. Is it a parody? Satire? Who knows? They’ve removed it without acknowledgement or apology, which seems to suggest that they’re going to hope people just forget about it, which implies that it wasn’t written in jest. Until Kyle and Gamer Limit issues an apology and explains themselves I’m inclined to believe that they knew what they were doing.
My inner cynic wonders if they posted it intentionally to get some controversy and generate hits. My inner cynic is a bit cynical like that sometimes.
