This is why its so difficult to take any feminism in gaming movement seriously. I can't sympathize with the issues when you're faking them and engaging in extremely dishonest behavior. It calls into question whether theres even a problem in the first place or if that is also a product of imagination. I certainly don't see rampant sexism in my gaming circles so to speak.
These people just seem to want attention, money and people to just accept their agendas blindly. Sorry but not happening, the veil has been pulled back.
It is kind of depressing how many dishonest editorials and all of the browbeating we've been subjected to put into this kind of context.
Zoe Quinn is hiding behind a persona. She created the character of "Zoe Quinn" as the face for women's equality in video games. But it's all a lie. She's pretending to be a character living in a fantasy. Meanwhile dopey sympathizers from anonymous forum-goers to self described journalists who either believe her shit or have a part in the scam will find any way possible to deflect. They are so invested and fight to defend her honor. The reality is she's Chelsea Van Valkenburg, a spoiled girl from Toronto who tried her hand at porn, was too lazy or stupid to get a real job, and saw an opportunity to swindle naive gamers and took it. A true bastion for equality, right? Their house of cards is finally collapsing around them.
The people who keep trying to dismiss and deflect should be ashamed of themselves. We're all ashamed of you.This comment was edited on Sep 12, 2014, 10:06.
