Some nerds were so mad about that “sexism in video games” Kickstarter that they made a competing series to prove that somehow an industry almost entirely staffed by men that makes products intended for men is actually discriminatory against men. This is what happens when women try to voice their opinion on how society treats them: hordes of men feel unreasonably threatened and scramble around like idiots trying to bring the discourse back to a place where men are in complete control, either through harrassment and threats of violence or by making some garbage like this. If you hear anyone trying to pull this embarrassing bullshit, do your duty as a decent human being and rub some dog turds on their face and neck and maybe pee on them too
I have a legit question
If this wasn’t in retaliation to and was in partnership with the original poster: would it be a problem? Aren’t we trying to break down gender stereotypes in general?
I have a HUGE problem with the Harassment she was subjected to and think it crossed all kinds of lines (I was definitely sick to my stomach reading it) but I’m just wondering.
I think it hurts the fight against the actual problem once people look at it as a men vs. women thing.
Putting aside this kickstarter and the one that…uh…inspired it…disposing of tired gender roles and stereotypes is something that everyone would appreciate in all forms of storytelling.
