Games are made for white men by white men? I bet you never heard of Japan. Your culture? I don't think so.
I'm pretty sure Cutter was always first to complain about video games featuring female protagonists, since he didn't feel represented, and equally quick to call it pandering when games, TV shows or movies reached out to audiences other than white males.
But yeah; obviously, Pac-Man, Street Fighter, Pokemon, Nintendo, Sega and Sony are just super niche footnotes in the annals of video game history. The top 2 games by player account according to Wikipedia are Crossfire and Dungeon Fighter Online, and are made neither by nor for white men, but that just means they're not mainstream.

@ Cutter. You accuse the quote of misandry, then defend the industry as "by men, for men." You're making her point for her. So congrats on that point.
As for "anyone can start their own business," it's nearly impossible at this point. The industry is mature and consolidated. Unless you're Chris Roberts, you must operate through one of the major publishers, all of which are run by men.
You're basically arguing against implementing industry-wide changes to ensure that people treat each other with dignity and respect. Why would you oppose that?

Where specifically is the hate you speak of?
I see someone commenting about how because she's been raised with a silver spoon in her mouth, she doesn't match the demographic of a consumer. - not hate.
I see someone commenting about how she makes them want to vomit - again, not hate.
I see someone commenting about how she's not qualified and hoping she doesn't get groped - again, not hate.
I see someone commenting about how her dad has been known to refer to her in an appropriate manner numerous times in the past - still not hate.
Meanwhile, we've seen right wing violence on the rise since the election of Trump. We've seen a rise in white nationalism which is defined specifically by their hatred of non-whites. And many Trump supporters want to see him get re-elected "to make the libtards cry"
Yes, we can demonstrate that the "Trumpsters" are the haters. Your own post demonstrates the victim mentality you seem to have all the while claiming it's the other side are the snowflakes. Classic projection.

this is a direct line to the president.
will she say something about micro transactions? refunds ? exploitative working conditions ?
or something about censorship? how about right to repair? forced obsolescence? investment of hostile nations into tech startups? theft and IP rights? 5g security concerns? data security and FOIA request?
how about domestic spying? poor internet speeds? quasi monopolies of carriers inhibiting fast and cheap internet?
future government grants into tech research?
or how big tech don't pay tax? broken promises by foreign tech investments (eg. foxcon and those crypto mines)?
or racism and caste systems in the silicon valley by Indian nationals? the abuse of visa systems? how american graduates are getting shafted by the industry? inflation in tech hubs caused by corporate spending and corporate rental?
this is actually an important session, unlike the others which are most likely just ads for their products
