Wtf she's a complete basket case she literally just accused him of sexism because he gave a different point of view on how to approach story telling.

Someone has a different approach they think may work so that makes them sexist and the clown that turned up to agree with it, really?

I saw a video about this yesterday. Really glad they got fired. Her in particular, she is just an awful human being, she celebrated John "TotalBiscuit" Bane's passing. 

Didn't TB do some bad things?

TB wasnt a saint and did some dick things. But to laugh at this death and in essence walk all over it, that's unjustified.

I'm not sure I'm hearing the entire story (including her perspective), but she sounds like an awful person. I'm sure sexism is a real problem in the games industry, but so far I haven't seen even a hint of sexism in this case. I'm sure there must've been some later on, but initially, this seems like valid critique.

She's using sexism from other cases to justify her reaction here the was no sexism in this case, she started bring up unrelated incidents to say that's why she went off at the streamer even though they said nothing offensive and worded everything politely.



This is what happens when people are used to getting their way by playing certain cards a lot. This needs to happen more often to serve as an example. You don't get to be an insufferable asshole just because you're not a straight white male.

To my knowledge the worst thing he ever did was telling an internet troll that was harassing him that he hoped they got cancer and died. This was early in his youtube career, like 8 years ago I think, and he apologized for it countless times over the years. Ironically he died of cancer himself. But yeah, other than that he was just highly opinionated and that rubbed some people's fur the wrong way. Her beef with him was that he supported the gamergate movement, but celebrating the death of a person because they were a gamergater is just a sick thing to do, she is terrible for doing it and should have been fired back then.

Exactly. She even tried to defend her disgusting view on him by claiming he supported harassment. Which he never did. What he DID do was defend people whose ideals opposed hers. He didn't subscribe to the notion that everyone who wasn't left-leaning in political viewpoints in the industry was a GamerGater. He supported transparency in gaming journalism. To her, that was enough to describe him as a ring leader for a cult of men who would throw their dicks at her house and demand she make them all a sandwich.

Yeah, gamergate was never about harassment for him, he never participated in the harassment of Zoe, Anita, or various other female game devs/game journalists during gamergate, nor did he encourage others to do so. Gamergate was all about ethics and transparency in gaming journalism for him.

I have no idea why these developers can't handle the most basic of "stress". It's really odd. You probably get paid a good amount, you're probably a semi-celebrity in the gaming scene (or at least, in the MMO community ... from what I know Guild Wars 2 is pretty well respected) but you can't handle the smallest amount of stress at your job. I really don't get it, I'd love to be in the situation she was in, in the career she was in, and frankly it's sad that she put in so much work only to fuck it up because she was impatient.

Osama Bin Laden did some dick things but when he died it was great and made me happy.
