I don’t think I could possibly put more emphasis onto this: I KNOW, RIGHT?????? FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Anonymous said: "Gaming Misogyny Gets Infinite Lives: Zoe Quinn, Virtual Rape, and Sexism" by Amanda Marcotte is another good article on the subject.

Marcotte is problematic, but she does make some good additional points and provides some more information.

Uhhhhmmmmm please point to me where I said it’s okay for her to cheat. Cheating isn’t cool no matter who you are, but it’s none of our business and certainly not justification for a massive harassment campaign. 

I really don’t care how chill you think wizardchan is, there’s still no evidence to back up your accusation.

There’s no evidence to back up her accusations either though?????
It’s the word of someone who has a history of lying and being manipulative against the word of a community who hadn’t really heard of her until all of a sudden they were being crucified for being sexist pigs. 

In all honesty, I don’t care if she’s a woman. I don’t care if she has sex. I don’t care if she has sex for reviews. Hell, I don’t really give a fuck if she cheats, in all honesty. The only reason that needs to be prevalent is because her game got a bad review, and she targeted an entire innocent community and destroyed their reputation because she couldn’t handle the truth. I’ve never fucking played her game, but if you can’t take negativity you shouldn’t be in a business where you’re gonna have critics. The only reason I even bring up the fact that she cheated is because that just proves her dishonesty.

All she’s effectively done is waste my time, your time, and stir people up into a riot because her feelings got hurt and she couldn’t handle it. So instead of asking why the “innocent” Zoe Quinn is being sacrificed, you should why the truly innocent Wizardchan was first sacrificed.

[Clipped]

I’ve seen the harassment with my own eyes. I’ve had pointless arguments with two accounts that were created to harass her already. The first time around, I saw horrific comments and floods of assholes on Twitter attacking her and screenshots of gross messages she got. It’s like you’re asking for evidence of sand in the desert, really.

It makes no sense to me why Zoe would attack some message board I’ve never heard of randomly for one bad review when she had a ton of positive ones. I’d heard positive things about the game before she was harassed the first time. She was already headed for success. And the message board seems fine. It’s still there. How much damage can be done to an online forum? It doesn’t add up.

Anonymous said: I keep seeing Zoe Quinn's name, but I've yet to see someone post the name of her boss, or the names of the journalists she allegedly slept with. Aren't they guilty too?

Yeah, you don’t see them mentioned a whole lot, and they’re not getting near the same harassment, though they’ve gotten some. Especially the ones defending her.

Every video, every written piece, and every compilation of blurry screenshots that purports to have “evidence” that Zoe Quinn did any of the things she’s been accused of engages in shaming her for having sex and/or doing porn and uses very misogynistic language and sexist slurs.

I’ve been told so…

It has nothing to do with the fact that she had sex with someone.
It’s the fact that she was in a relationship, she slept with a married man, and she tried to sleep her way to the top. She took a huge leap backwards for women in the gaming industry by selling the idea that you will fail if you don’t pimp yourself for ratings.

1) You have no evidence that she tried to “sleep her way to the top” and 2) as usually this message completely misses the point I was making and 3) fuck you.

Except the fact that Wizardchan ha never heard of her prior to being accused of harassing her, her boyfriend AND the married man talked about it so my point is a hell of a lot stronger than yours

I have no problem with people doing what they want. And Im not only blaming her. The married man is just as vile. 

Lol how is your point stronger? Her boyfriend is a bitter asshole who seriously violated her privacy, and what did they even talk about? No evidence of any of the accusations involving Wizardchan, either. Come back with some evidence or shut up and think about why you want to believe the worst about Zoe right away even though there’s nothing to back up these accusations.

Your ignorance is laughable. To assume that someone is innocent because they were called out by someone betrayed by said person is naive and quite frankly i feel bad for whatever poor bastard spawn you may give life to in the future.

"But mommy, I didn’t hit her, I promise!"
"Shut up, son, you abusive misogynist. She’s a girl and girls don’t lie."

That is exactly the imgur thing I told you NOT to send me in my tags. Dear lord.

A bunch of anonymous messages is 100% NOT evidence. You assume someone is guilty because of this? How is this at all evidence? Why do you take the word of these internet randos automatically? Nevermind, I know why. It’s the same reason you have a blog titled “God Bless the Patriarchy.”

If this is the best you guys can do, then yeah, I’m 100% sure she’s innocent.

Kindly fuck off forever, asshole.

Actually, they are an extremely docile community. I may have been plausible if she called out 4chan or even maybe 7chan, but wizardchan is too chill. No, but seriously the fact that you think it’s okay for her to cheat because she’s a woman is disgustingly sexist. Feminism is a laughable “cause” because it’s only purpose is to give people like you a false sense of entitlement.

Uhhhhmmmmm please point to me where I said it’s okay for her to cheat. Cheating isn’t cool no matter who you are, but it’s none of our business and certainly not justification for a massive harassment campaign. 

I really don’t care how chill you think wizardchan is, there’s still no evidence to back up your accusation.

Anonymous said: I hate the whole "she slept her way to the top" when it comes to women in positions of power. ALOT of people truly believe this. There's usually at least one comment to that effect on any article involving a woman with alot of success. People like to pretend that they know what that person is doing with their sex life so that they don't have to feel intimidated by women who are already better then them. Thank you for shutting that shit down fast. She doesn't deserve the shit she's getting at all

I know. It’s always straight to that whenever a well-known woman’s sex life is discussed. People have sex with each other, and it’s usually with people the spend a lot of time with. Workplace romances are so common. Do you have any idea how many journalists are married to politicians? But they’re acting like this thing with Zoe is threatening their very way of life. Please.

"workplace romances are so common"

Are they not implicitly or explicitly forbidden in most workplaces?

Yeah but that doesn’t stop people, trust me.

That’s not a good thing, is it?
Especially journalists x politicians?

Not ideal, but why the major freakout over the fact that Zoe did it? And talk about naive. Game devs are friends with game journalists all the time, too, you think that doesn’t affect reviews? Why is Zoe being sacrificed on the holy altar of game journalism right now? Game journalism has never been especially professional, and it’s certainly not what I would call important. And why must we assume she did it to get good reviews and publicity? She has plenty already, and Nathan’s an attractive man. It just makes no sense.

Anonymous said: About work place romances being "forbidden". Sexual harassment in the workplace is forbidden, but men still do it all the fucking time. Since when has something being "forbidden" stopped anyone from doing it? Fact of the matter is, if a woman is doing any "sleeping her way to the top" the man is just as much at fault, for engaging in the intercourse in the first place, AND if he's promoting her for it, HE'S even shittier then she is. Men are so weak, they have to assume women fuck to be powerful

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ x a billion.
