The pandering is real.



Around the Network

Context: she went on a fundraising livestream of DK64 for MermaidsUK, after it's National Lottery funding was put under review (full story here: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leeds-46961883).

I greatly appreciate her vocal support for the trans community, and it's quite unlike most politicians to show up on a livestream for trans right across the globe!




DEFINITELY not pandering. Sad part is it's probably working.



I am currently sigless.

I wouldn't say that's pandering. She's got the Switch crowd backing her 100% anyway.

As a massive Nintendo fan, I'm going to have to disagree about that 100% :)

I really don't like her but it's pretty cool that she's a fan 9f the N64. It's a great console.

Fair enough, my man. Just going by what I've seen on social media!

Please need to get this context, huge fan of her and Hbomberguy, who raised over £200,000 in his live stream.

She just seems very genuine, this is something I would do if I was a Politician.

Nope, wish she would just go away

By all accounts she played videogames when she was younger, and I really don't see the downsides of saying she likes gaming while also pushing for sensible tax reform and supporting trans rights. 
In fact, who is she pandering to? People who play games aren't exactly a base, so what'd be the point?

I guess you prefer your politicians more fossil-like and out of the loop
