Is there any other liberal rag worse than Polygon? Jesus, their bullshit is physically nauseating.
What line in the article did you find so offensive?
I can't answer for Cutter, but I'm pretty far left and I find a TON of shit about Polygon offensive. Like this for instance:https://www.polygon.com/2018/10/23/18015434/gog-twitter-wontbeerased-hashtag
This article is about a "transphobic" comment GOG tweeted.
Transphobic, you say? Gosh, that sounds pretty hateful. Wonder what "transphobic" thing GOG tweeted?
Are you ready? Are you ready for the hateful thing they said? (Trigger warning for sensitive readers: you might not want to read past this point).
“Classic PC Games #WontBeErased on our watch. Yeah, how’s that for some use of hashtags.”
In other words, they took a twitter hashtag that was being used to criticize some Trump administration policies against trans people, and used it to describe their own attempts to keep classic games around.
There's no fucking hate or fear in that tweet, period.
The fact that Polygon is routinely willing to accuse others of being phobic or hateful when they clearly doing no such thing, is reason enough to avoid reading anything in Polygon.
