Op Ed

Nuclear Unicorn - At the Edge of Night- Who Owns a Woman’s Truth?
By now word has spread like a nauseating shockwave through the various channels and tributaries of the Internet: independent game developer Chloe Sagal “defrauded” online contributors to her IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign for what she’d called a “lifesaving surgery;” in the wake of the internet-mob-justice bacchanal that followed, Chloe made an apparent suicide attempt on a stream. She is, as of this writing and to the best of my knowledge, recovering in a hospital. The outpouring of internet vigilantism that followed was an indistinctly undulating sea of noise, hate, and entitled egoistic rage. But there was one Tweet that bubbled to the surface and got everyone’s attention.

GamesBeat - When burn victims become arsonists: On public shaming in the videogames industry.
What instantly draws my gaze toward these oh-so-common floggings is the most common factor: those carrying the whips. Like clockwork, they labeled Allistair “transphobic,” demanded that he be punished, and seemingly dusted their hands off for what they perceived was a good deed. This is not the first time they’ve done so. Ironically, they are the biggest proponents for positive change, yet they seem so consistent with their own negative behavior. Their usual approach is far from persuasive, and is even potentially damaging.

I don't understand the outpouring of politically correct BS coming from the Nuclear Unicorn article. Glad to see I'm not the only one. Business is a cruel world. If this was done in a more formal company environment, this person would be in jail.

Prediction: very, very soon it will be politically incorrect for a guy to dress up like a woman on Halloween. These PC people are sickening.
