A woman is being maliciously attacked by misogynistic fuckwads because she decided she wanted to make a video game about depression, but apparently that’s a "no-no" in the sexist and vile pit known as the video game community, so now people have decided to go on a witch-hunt and try to bring her down by posting her personal information as well as the information and phone numbers of her family and friends as well as sending her death threats and if you don’t think that’s the most disgusting way to act about a fucking video game then you need to back the fuck up and get the fuck out and think about why you think of the allegations against her justifies these deplorable actions.
*SPOILER ALERT* THEY DON’T.
There is no justification for her personal information being spread and there is no justification for the death threats as well as the numerous other wretched filth that is being sent to her. You’re wrong for thinking that there is any justification in these horrible actions.
Even my friend has gotten threatening messages because she spoke out against the blatant sexism and misogyny being thrown at this woman and just about every other woman in the games industry. As a man, I’ll likely only get the smallest fraction of hate-mail that these women have gotten, and that’s the sad truth of the privilege that I and just about every other man in the gaming community/industry have, and it makes my blood boil to see my friend, someone I care greatly about, get harassed in such repulsive and sickening ways. You’re not making the video game industry a better place by doing that, you’re making it worse.
Also, I have seen literally zero evidence or proof of the accusations being thrown at this woman. But whether or not all of it is true, guess what….. IT’S NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS WHO SHE’S SLEPT WITH.
NONE. AT. ALL.
If you think the only way to get your point across is to insult the target person and threaten them with death, stalk them and spread personal information for people to use and abuse, you’re not doing it for the sake of "ethics", you’re doing it because you’re a terrible excuse for a human being and your parents should be ashamed of you for turning out to be an actual sack of shit.
