A basic rundown of this newly surfaced drama:

Zoe Quinn considers herself an indie game developer.
She put forward her concept for an indie game focused around the theme of depression towards Steams greenlight system. Surprisingly her game, now named Depression Quest, did end up being greenlit, however people were perturbed and angered by the game turning out to be not quite what it was described to be whilst in greenlight status. Essentially the game is a wall of text and you pick and choose different answers to progress and thus forth "heal your depression".
She gained backlash over using Robin William's death in order to promote the game and has also been found to be misappropriating donated funds.

The bomb dropped two days ago on the 16th when an angry now ex-boyfriend (Eron Gjoni) created a Wordpress blog documenting how she whilst in a relationship with him she fucked at least 5 Kotaku writers, 3 of which have been identified, in exchange for positive press and good reviews

Since then -

4chan is banning Zoe Quinn threads on sight.
Steam is banning any negative review of her game.
She is submitting illegitimate DMCA claims against negative video of her on Youtube at lighting speed, Cathy style.
(Horrible)nudes have been found and released.

Her ex-boyfriends full report can be read here:

So many questions.

No. 7810

This chick is involved in more drama?

1) Didn't she pull the misogyny card when her game was first greenlit and there was some backlash over something I can't remember?

2) Then she was part of that YouTube/Maker/GAME_JAM drama and I seem to remember her pulling the misogyny card at some point during that too? (Admittedly the whole GAME_JAM thing was a giant fuck up.)

3) And now this?

She was held up as an example of oppressed female gamers/developers but now you have to wonder how much of it was her own making. It takes some lolcow superpowers to be involved in so much drama multiple times over such little time.

To be fair, even a lot of the male indie devs seem to be drama queens.

No. 7815


Fuck sake, who writes up an exposé like this? "Acts" and trigger warnings and constant metaphors.

Padding out every second sentence with metaphors does not help to get a full picture and instead just dilutes the proof.

Guy comes off as an tryhard douche. No wonder he fell for her schtick.

No. 7820

In his convos with her he writes a lot like my ex who is a bit of a tryhard in his own right.

But it might just be a method of coping. This is a huge bomb to drop on someone, coming at this in an angle as ~acts~ and through metaphor makes the situation seem less real and therefore dilutes his pain. But I dunno.

But who in their right mind finds out shit like this, but still goes to such lengths to "make it work"?? Having your S.O. lie to you for MONTHS and expect them to do better after a few days? When you know they're the kind of person who's always looking our for themselves and their image? Dude's a weenie.

Isn't it kind of his fault for agreeing to "go exclusive" after like a week of knowing each other? Even if you hit it off really well and talk a lot, you still don't have an idea of what that person is like in different settings, contexts and situations. Maybe I'm just a mistrustful person, but I would NOT believe a person who says they're so XYZ because of ABC until I see some proof of that.

No. 7837


He comes off as an artsy douche. He seems pretty naive so I wonder how old he is? Zoe's 27 or something but he seems like he'd be maybe 20?

But he's not really an important part of the story. The reason this story has got legs is because it's a missing puzzle piece that connects so many strands in the gaming community.

1) The incestuous relationship between game journalists and indie developers.

2) The arrogance of indie developers, as if some media attention makes them rock stars.

3) SJWs imposing themselves on gamers by stirring up shit and controlling the media narrative.

The mainstream gaming press is pretty much fully on the SJW bandwagon and constantly insults their customers (gamers) while praising crap from nobodies like Zoe. To see so many strands blow up at once from a single exposé is pretty entertaining.

No. 7842

I don't follow the gaming industry at all, and it seems pretty clear to even a caveman like me that gaming media is sucking the cocks of people who's egos are too big for their accomplishments.

Honestly it seems that way for a lot of "geeky" industries and communities.

No. 7859


I'm primarily a backend web developer for the last ten years and most of my long term online friends have been in the games industry for the same amount of time. Every media story about the tech industry is so predictable from our perspective.

Honestly I don't even know where to start. I could write thousands of words about it.

1) Pretty much anything open source is fuelled by ego and prestige (instead of money). This means that even a simple bug report can lead to an hour of arguing because how dare some random guy point out your mistake.

2) "Trendy" tech companies like GitHub or Valve that don't really have a strict corporate structure basically descend into high school cliques once they have too many employees for the founders to directly police.

3) Everyone is obsessed with getting more women involved and has been for the last 20+ years. So every single convention has to have some kind of women's panel even though there just isn't that many women interested at the base hobbyist level (e.g. compare accounts belonging to men vs women on GitHub/etc). This means that the slots get filled by incompetents and SJWs and the whole thing is a drama bomb waiting to happen.

Can you think of any recent tech scandal that doesn't fit one of those three? Even all the cries of "misogyny" are actually one of the above at their root.

Generally speaking, the more corporate something is the easier it is to deal with. But so many people try their hardest to not become corporate even if it means they end up high school.

I don't think there's any point in attacking anything. The censorship is acting like a lid on a boiling pot. The only things I think that would help is keeping people talking about it and a shorter video that quickly summarises everything with proof.


I seem to remember that in one of the chat logs she's talking to her ex about the game scene in Toronto or Vancouver or wherever. She doesn't explicitly say it but it reads like she slept her way up that community too.

We will never be able to prove if she false flagged herself but it does seem like it.

doxing would have allowed us to find the wife, the other wives as well. Would have allowed us to make it a tiny bit more personal.

Using doxing as an excuse for censorship is very autistic. You cant just relax, hang back and wait for the word to appear, as if it gives you jurisdiction to indiscriminately remove everything.

Yes I did try to rile up the peasants, but what else would you do? We are a human ddos where each and every one of us is capable of doing something unique.

First link is her really retarded rant, second link is what she promptly changed it to.
For posterity's sake:

I will not negotiate with terrorists.

This has nothing to do with games and is not a matter of legitimate public interest, but is simply a personal matter. I would hope and request that the games press be respectful of what IS a personal matter, and not news, and not about games. This is explicitly about my private life, which has been regrettably forced into the public and framed by people who pose a threat to my safety and well being as well as that of the people I love. I would hope that the effort people have gone through to dress it up as anything more would not be enough to have those who see it for what it is take the bait.

I am not going to link to, or address anything having to do with the validity of the specific claims made by an angry ex-boyfriend with an axe to grind and a desire to use 4chan as his own personal army. This is not a “she-said” to his “he-said”. The idea that I am required to debunk a manifesto of my sexual past written by an openly malicious ex-boyfriend in order to continue participating in this industry is horrifying, and I won’t do it. It’s a personal matter that never should have been made public, and I don’t want to delve into personal shit, mine or anyone else’s, while saying that people’s love and sex lives are no one’s business. I’m not going to talk about it. I will never talk about it. It is not your goddamned business.

What I am going to say is that the proliferation of nude pictures of me, death threats, vandalization, doxxing of my trans friends for having the audacity to converse with me publicly, harassment of friends and family and my friends’ family in addition to TOTALLY UNRELATED PEOPLE, sending my home address around, rape threats, memes about me being a whore, pressures to kill myself, slurs of every variety, fucking debates over what my genitals smell like, vultures trying to make money off of youtube videos about it, all of these things are inexcusable and will continue to happen to women until this culture changes. I’m certainly not the first. I wish I could be the last.

Because I’ve had a small degree of success in a specific subculture, every aspect of my life is suddenly a matter of public concern. Suddenly it’s acceptable to share pictures of my breasts on social media to threaten and punish me. Suddenly I don’t have any right to privacy or basic dignity. Suddenly I don’t get to live out normal parts of life, like going through a bad and ugly breakup in private. I have forfeited this by being a blip in a small community, while those who delight in assailing me hide behind their keyboards and a culture that permits it, beyond reproach.

My life and my body are not public property. No one’s life and body are public property.

Sexuality is one of the most personal, hurtful, and easy things to demonize a woman over, and also has nothing to do with my games. Yet large swaths of the gaming community are either unable or unwilling to separate the two. I’m convinced that my ex chose 4chan as the staging ground for his campaign of harassment and character assassination because he knew this; he knew that someone claiming to be “from the Internet” has shown up at my house once already, and he is counting on the most reviled hubs of our community to live up to their sordid reputations. This is another example of gendered violence, whereby my personal life becomes a means to punish my professional credentials and to try to shame me into giving up my work. I’m still committed to doing my small part to create a world where no woman is at risk of experiencing this. That said, I am thankful that even boards with a reputation for being the most hostile places online have been able to tell the intent behind these threads and banned them outright, seeing the hate speech for what it is, and not-news for what it is.

As much as those leading the charge against me will do mental backflips to make posting pictures of my tits about “ethics”, the real agenda is plain as day if you give it even a moment of sincere critical thought. No one who would terrorize someone and the totally uninvolved people they love in this way on such a massive and public scale could ever honestly claim to be interested in “ethics” of any kind. These kinds of accusations have been levied against any woman of status in any industry, ever. I have been judged because, if you are a woman, you are expected to constantly “prove” yourself, and even mere accusations can somehow undo all the good you’ve done and justify any measure of depraved brutality against you. Meanwhile, I see major support thrown the way of my male colleagues when they are accused of any sort of wrongdoing. Neither of these attitudes is correct, and they are patently unfair and reductive. Nobody exists in a vacuum, and anyone can change and grow into a better person. Heroes and villains don’t exist - just regular boring-ass people with scars and fuckups and moments of brilliance. And every single boring-ass person deserves the space to keep personal matters private and handled outside the shark tank of anonymous internet boards.

Once again, I will not be addressing the specific validity of any statements about my private life. If you have good-faith questions or doubts, I am more than happy to discuss private matters in private, where they belong. But I refuse to be coerced into making my private life or anyone’s private life a matter of public record, and I refuse to be continually emotionally terrorized by people who have long decided to hate me regardless.

I’m looking forward to moving on and getting back to work. To anyone else who has had to deal with this kind of indignity on any scale, you have my undying support and my ear if you ever want to talk to someone who might understand. To the people who support my work and can see this crusade for what it is, thank you from the bottom of my heart. To those people, I love you, I always have, and I always will.

Why are they completely missing the point?

The bad thing isn't her being a whore. The bad thing is she whored her way into getting her game popular, which is the exact opposite way feminism says women should conduct themselves. Feminism says women are supposed to be "equal" in the sense where they can accomplish what men can, without stooping to things like making themselves sexual objects. Feminism looks down on the stereotype that successful women fuck their way to the top.

And here's Zoe. Not only fucking to get her game popular, but continually promoting the "women are victims therefore everyone needs to protect them!!!" attitude, and putting blame on the nerds at wizardchan who didn't do anything but be nerds. She's a lying, manipulative cunt who shouldn't be a representative of a positive role model of women in gaming.

And her "game" is shit, too. Even for what it is it's still poorly written and does a horrible job portraying clinical depression.

>**This is not me being dismissive – the harassment came in large part from a community site for adult male virgins, who were apparently angered by the suggestion that a woman could possibly understand depression. Since women can get sex whenever they want, and what else is there to be depressed about than not being able to get sex? It was all very peculiar. To clarify, with thanks for various inputs, there is nothing wrong whatsoever with being a virgin. However, there is something wrong with stalking and harassment, and any community that provided a bed for this needs to take a look at itself.

Well, it's free, so nobody is required to pay for it. I'd still urge people to send their cash to someone who needs it, and then just talk to people they know to learn about depression. Because this game won't give you a great insight.

It does a fairly good job at being dull and depressing, but it's clearly partly unintended. The writers have things to learn from visual novel creators. Yep, it's that bad.

The game depicts the main character as a guy in his twenties. He has a job, a satisfying social life, a mother who's a bit of a cunt but otherwise a good connection with his core and extended family, and quite importantly a devoted, stable girlfriend.

Why would he be depressed you ask? Good fucking question. His job is a little tedious. He's insecure. His mom is a bit of a cunt. But this usually doesn't add up to depression.

The MC experiences sleep problems as a result of his depression, but he pulls out fairly easily, even going to work tired after fucking up for two days in a row. In reality it's very difficult to pull out of (and impossible to do quickly). Sleep problems feeds a negative spiral. Managing sleep is a VERY important part of managing depression.

It's silly how the MC is so reluctant to seek therapy. Even though the expositional cop-out of having status bars tell you how utterly and deeply depressed you are, you still don't seem to be desperate enough to do ANYTHING that could stop you from being so goddamn depressed, like I did. I get that there's a bit of a stigma and reluctance, but most people reach a point where things get fucking grueling, and they either seek help or try to kill themselves.

So, in my playthrough I decided to get pills, and stay on them. The alternate universe this game describes is a utopia, where antidepressants, quote, "side effects […] are negligible". Bullfuck. It's common that you take two or three kinds of antidepressants before you MAYBE find a kind that works. They ignore the opportunity to show two common side effects, namely anorgasmia and varying degrees of impotence, in a scene where the girlfriend very lovingly sets up sexytimes, but the main character is forced to turn her down because of muh feelings.

The game also fails to show that it's common to get out just a little, then relapse, then seem fine, then relapse. And that it goes on for years. No, the MC just gets better.

All in all, it's not an atrocious "game", but it's hardly something you should pay for. I'd be hard pressed call it good. But it's something. Maybe it'll increase awareness a tiny bit. Though profiteering off of depression is less than noble. I understand games take money to make, but a more appropriate way of funding would have been to have a kickstarter to cover the basics for the team, which wouldn't be much. Or maybe do it as charity?

And amusingly, the game didn't make me want to kill myself, despite its initial warnings. I'm actually a little pissed with how it misrepresents treating depression, which is a lot better than feeling depressed.

Hope this wall of text is of some worth or use.

There are elements of real depression, but there is no real trigger for the depression and it develops unlike real depression. It's not a pure tumblr depression though, I picture those being closer to CWC crashing into slumber. You can feel depressed, but that doesn't make you depressed.

And it seems like the ploy of releasing this as free because or Robin Williams suicide is a little misguided. Sure, celebrities commit suicide and it causes more suicides, but that's not the main theme of this game. He was supposedly diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disorder of some sort. It's the kind of thing that Dignitas would help you die for. It's still possible that his depression played part in it, but it's very much arguable that he was of sound enough mind to decide that suicide was reasonable.

Oh boy.

Part of me wants to think "oh, nobody involved knew anyone was involved with anyone else", but that's probably not the case.

I hate this woman so fucking much. I'm a noobie web developer and my bf is a programmer, so we're actively involved in the "tech community" and this fucking woman always causes so much drama and annoying shit. Says the most ridiculous stuff.

The worst part is that my good friend who is a technologist follows her and sometimes retweets her. This same friend also retweeted something by Zoe Quinn earlier today.

No. 8124

Why don't they understand, it's not about the sex. It's about using a form of bribery to achieve success illegitimately. Zoe basically did the business equivalent of "sleeping with the prof to get an A".

Imagine, you and the other girls in class have been struggling in a weed-out course and the hardass prof only hands out a finite number of A's, you're busting your asses, pulling allnighters, and scrape up some B's and B+'s. Then you find out some bimbo who never went to class got an A, and is bragging about it to everyone, dropping not-so-subtle hints on how she got it.

This is the same shit. There are other female developers out there, who don't sleep around to get noticed, who work with good teams and make actual games instead of a mediocre wall of text, who should be getting praise and greenlighted on steam. Instead she took the spotlight when another more deserving indie developer could have taken it, and sings her own praises about how successful she's become and what a strong female role model in the videogame industry she is. It's a slap in the face to hardworking developers with integrity.

I bet a bunch of these sites got together after the last "misogynistic attack" that made media waves and decided that something needed to be done to protect women.

The Fine Young Capitalists thing sounds like case of #3 I mentioned in >>7859

The whole tech/gaming community is very "beta" and obsessed with getting more women involved. They try to create opportunities for women but since there just isn't many women interested at the grass root hobbyist level (except for art), the vacuum gets filled by SJWs and drama queens and opportunists and so on.

There's even programming textbooks where every metaphor or real life example is written with feminine pronouns. Because fuck 99% of your readers, got to please the 1% of women. I've seen this in computing textbooks going as far back to the early 90s but never seen it in any science or maths textbook.

They'd be better off not pandering to women and just let them climb up the ladder like everyone else. But the industry is like an "omega" who would rather take the abuse.

Also I think the TFYC is kind of a bad idea from the get go. The reason mods (game mods, not moderators) suck these days is because everyone wants to be a "designer" and not actually do the hard work of making something.

So many people come into our IRC channel saying they have an idea and need an artist, and a programmer, and a mapper, etc. "Back in my day", we'd make sure we had something people could play before asking for help.

As far as I know that was the original cause of the drama with Steam Greenlight and Wizardchan a few months ago.

She kicked up a fake shitstorm about being harassed and all the gaming press jumped on board with another "misogynist male gamers" story even though there was no evidence.

Now the same gaming press won't report any of this current drama because they want more evidence.

Honestly, this is par the course.

I'm an old school goon and my SA forum account dates from 2001 (and I think I had two older accounts before that). SA used to be an edgy trouble maker like 4chan but turned to shit around 2004 or so.

Every website seems to move to the left and become more heavily moderated the more popular it becomes. 4chan took a big turn for the worse after the Project Chanology media coverage brought in tons of newfags back in 2008 or whenever.

I'm not worried about the end of 4chan, but I am worried that we are long overdue for a replacement.

P.S. It always makes me laugh when people like TotalBiscuit claim to be old school goons when their accounts are from 2005 or so. If your account is older than 2004 you won't even be invited to the hidden goon piracy sites.

0 Okay, so I wanted to add some points that go alongside the corruption, but not into it. Sorry if I repeat anything; hopefully if I do I'll at least add to the discussion. (It's long so adding numbers to sections to make it easier to refer to.)

1 Zoe had repeatedly said cheating was rape. Now, the actual logistics are kind of odd, but the idea is that your partner can't fully know what they're consenting to if they're being cheated on, which is the informed consent source of statutory rape charges; they're consenting, but they don't fully understand what they're consenting to. Most people would at most consider this a technicality, but she was dead serious about this, as far as I can tell. What this says is she was either willing to do something she considered as rape if it felt good to her or was lying and posturing to gain fame or attack other alleged cheaters. Either way, it shows she's willing to make exceptions for herself.

2 Zoe is claiming her nudes are leaked. These are professional (crappy) photos that can be accessed if one pays for them. Not only was her sleeping with devs a form of monetizing her sexual actions, she quite literally is a porn model. Her sexuality is professional business and therefore open to public scrutiny. That she tried to misrepresent this speaks to her credibility; I'd guess most of us don't judge porn models for having sex until they have secret affairs.

3 If the chat logs are real, which I 100% believe they are, she's extremely abusive. She took multiple actions that either instilled or exacerbated his anxiety and depression; she gave/worsened someone the illness she said she was campaigning for awareness of. But beyond that, she guilted him for doubting her faithfulness (obviously a reasonable concern), she put him in no-win situations, she manipulated him into cutting off friends she didn't like, she'd say things that hurt and then suggest he was too sensitive (and claim his hurt feelings hurt HER feelings), she'd make her hurt feelings the most important thing, she'd conveniently have a panic attack whenever he pointed out an inconsistency in her stories (and near the end said she might hurt herself), she'd shun him when mad at him (or cheating), and that's not even getting into what some sites claim is emotional abuse when a woman is the victim. Without a doubt she was gaslighting, a vile pattern that social justice extremists have turned into a buzzword but don't really understand.

4 She likely falsified claims of harassment. It has always been unverifiable at best, completely transparent excuses at worst. She's even gone so far as to claim real life actions without proof, without police involvement, even once claiming someone robbed her (but conveniently forgot to take the smartphone she then used to cry for donations on). What she's doing has been dubbed Damselling, but has also been dubbed a Wounded Gazelle Gambit. In clearer terms, she is exploiting the gendered expectations that women must be protected and men must protect in order to shield herself from harm, in effect using the exact patriarchy and sexism she rallies against.

5 She's trying to make this about misogyny. It certainly isn't, as a gaming industry man with a gf/wife who does as little as sext with a woman risks his career. Remember how two men got fired over the Dongle Incident? She had unprotected sex with multiple people in situations where it was impossible to get tested every time. (Her boyfriend claimed that, as of the time of his writing, she never did send him any STD results.) The outrage that would follow a male dev for exposing multiple women to STDs, and INSISTING on condomless sex, would be enormous. The only sexism here is how they're all gathering to protect her like ants around their queen instead of throwing her to the wolves.

6 She's claimed in the past that she grew up in some redneck town where she had to pretend to be "not queer" in order to survive. She cites Gone Home as her reason for coming out and her memories about some girl she loved back in her teenage years. I don't believe her for a second that she's "queer". But while she's obviously not a lesbian she could potentially be bi, so we can't just say she lied about it until something else comes out. (More than likely she's using tumblr's mentality where you can be queer despite being cis and straight because sometimes you think girls are pretty. Or that you're trans because you aren't a feminine woman.)

7 She has never, truly, taken responsibility for her actions. First she blamed the loneliness that came with depression. Then alcohol. Then she blamed her mother's and ex-husband's alleged abuse. In order to get press, she blamed wizardchan. Now, she blamed her exboyfriend's lies, she blamed gamers, she blamed /v/, and has now started blaming MRAs (who, for the most part, don't care or even know unless they're gamers). Even in confessing the flings with her then boyfriend, he had to ask each time and she only admitted to as few as she could get away with.

8 She has funding for some sort of game jam directing right into her paypal account. While she's unprofessional and shortsighted enough to possibly explain this as a bad decision, those same features also give a good chance she's committing real fraud with this campaign that has no start date, no visible plans, no transparency, just in a really stupid manner.

9 We don't even need to suspect that she's slept with other site staff or that Gawker is putting censor pressure on these sites. She's famous for making a game about depression. She's publically said or implied it's based on her own depression. It's only a matter of time until she cries suicide attempt (with no evidence) and these sites don't want to be blamed yet again.

10 Her game wasn't an accurate description of depression. I've been depressed since I was at least 10, properly diagnosed at around 18, and am into my mid 20s now. The majority of the crossed out sections were the choices I would've picked even at my worst. I have five estimates on what her depressive perspective is:
A) She's had one or several depressive episode(s), but not a long bout of depression. The story doesn't seem to last more than half a year and has a happy ending, despite her epilogue claiming it's open ended. Unless the depression has an discernible cause (like an abusive relationship or a terrible job), it's usually lifelong.
B) She was describing parts of her personal story and writing (fan)fiction about how she would've been cured if only she'd been allowed that cat/taken that appointment/told off her mom/etc. Needless to say, this is silly if the case. One decision isn't going to alleviate your bad month. I suppose part of this was her goal of framing it as a game with status bars… but she could have just made the product in a different format and thrown that out.
C) She was writing a story solely for herself, ignoring that depression is extremely complex to the point where some doctors have started classifying depression as a category rather than an illness and that it's often found with other disorders/illnesses. If this is the case then advertising it as a story of depression is dishonest; you're not going to raise awareness about depression by suggesting there's an average depression path that neatly works out in the end.
D) She doesn't have depression and is working off of what friends/family/tv have told her. This would account for how it doesn't mention the difficulties with cleaning or dressing oneself and the vague ideas of not wanting sex being based on busied thoughts. The motivation for a lot of the other behaviors seem off too.
E) She has Something Else that she doesn't know or admit to having that coloured her interpretations of the illness. This theory is most fascinating to me, but (imo) this isn't really the time for armchair psychology.
I've heard more than one review blasting the story for being a prettified version of depression, just like >>8064 mentioned, where medication is perfect and therapy cures everything. In reality, therapy can make it worse if you have an (undiagnosed) underlying mental condition and the majority of anti-depressants have some kind of side effect*. Also, getting in to see a therapist in less than a year is a joke unless you're rather well off financially in a privatized healthcare system. The whole thing is sanitized: no mentions of suicidal thoughts or actions, no self-inflicted injuries, no self-destruction behaviors, no binge eating or starving or purging, no outbursts, no forgetting/putting off bills and finances, no crying fits… Everyone was supportive even if they didn't understand and there was no real tension between the player and the girlfriend; in that situation, break ups and divorces are common. And as the above quoted anon pointed out, they ignored that most people slip in and out of depression and/or have episodes their whole lives.
(It also bugged me a lot that they made the player character gender neutral and gave the "partner" a gender neutral name… but then made her distinctly female. If you're going to squawk when a game isn't 100% LGBT friendly you should start with your own products.)
*I know how shitty the side effects can be first hand. I'm still losing weight from taking Paxil more than two years ago, which was 40 pounds in about eight months (because of the weight gain I wouldn't go outside and sobbed whenever I had to get dressed); I started at about 110 pounds (5'2", F). It also dulled me and took away my ability to feel joy. Wellbutrin made me so constipated I had to stop taking it. It can take a decade to find the best medication for somebody, and that doesn't always end up being a perfect fit.

11 My god is it a relief to finally be able to say how bland I think she looks. Limp hair, funny nose, generic piercings and tattoos. AWFUL fashion sense. And her sexual posing is so awkward! And her choice of shoot with paint peeling off the walls is hilarious. (My guess is she's one of those ~sexually liberated kinky~ types who secretly love being dominated by men, which would explain why these power hungry social justice guys go right for her; they can act out their brutal fantasies without having a feminist breathing down their neck about patriarchal-masculinity-BDSM-is-basically-rape bullshit.)

There's been a lot of rumours that both Arin and Suzie are both huge SJW's which would explain Arins sticking up for Zoe Quinn on Twitter, and that a large part of why Arin and Jontron (allegedly) fell out was due to the fact that they didn't like how opposed Jontron was to the extremist side of this social justice bullshit and that because of that Arin and Suzie picked on him a lot together.

It's fucking weird that Arin doesn't even acknowledge Jon's existence any more, and that he wasn't even invited to Arin and Suzie's wedding. I mean they collaborated for years.

> 3) SJWs imposing themselves on gamers by stirring up shit and controlling the media narrative.

It's all played out so predictably hasn't it?

I actually think the lack of media coverage is progress. With Anita everyone was running articles about how misogynistic young male gamers are and it even made it to the MSM like the BBC. Not many sites are running such articles this time because they're on the back foot.

I don't think there's really anything else to be won from this specific scandal unless somebody unearths something new or presents all the evidence in a very convincing viral video or something.

Zoe and the SJWs have won a Phyrric victory and each time they try to run bullshit like this it will be less effective.

> The armies separated; and, it is said, Pyrrhus replied to one that gave him joy of his victory that one more such victory would utterly undo him. For he had lost a great part of the forces he brought with him, and almost all his particular friends and principal commanders; there were no others there to make recruits, and he found the confederates in Italy backward. On the other hand, as from a fountain continually flowing out of the city, the Roman camp was quickly and plentifully filled up with fresh men, not at all abating in courage for the loss they sustained, but even from their very anger gaining new force and resolution to go on with the war.

But what makes her so different from the countless other people 4chan has doxxed and raided?

No. 8653

The sheer number of threads and posts about her plays a role, but the reality is that threads like these have been getting deleted for years.

4chan has been deleting "give her a call /b/" and related raid threads for a long time now, actually. They just usually have fairly slow and shitty moderation. They recently brought on a lot of new janitors though, so enforcement is becoming more swift.

Also, it can be hard to distinguish between the threads just discussing the scandal and ones that are trying to organize raids. Some people are posting her name, phone number, and other things in threads that weren't made for that purpose, which also creates even more seemingly heavy-handed moderation.

There is no direct proof and and it's basically a non-story because the industry is so corrupt anyway. TotalBiscuit has done videos about payola in the games industry before so it's really nothing new.

I think there's only two issues that can really be pushed with adequate proof.

1) Greg Tito the editor in chief of The Escapist admitting that he is biased and requires no evidence from SJWs. See >>8144 and >>8145 People really should be writing to his employer to get him fired.

2) The sheer hypocrisy of Zoe's actions vs her stated beliefs and yet she is still held up as a beacon for women in gaming.

Yes, when you're "hacked" in 2014 it means one of the following:

1) Your email password was phished (you're a dumb ass).

2) You used the same password on another website (you're a dumb ass).

3) Someone guessed your security questions but this doesn't work on many sites such as Gmail (and you're still a dumb ass for using guessable answers).

So unless these hackers have found some new Heartbleed level exploit, then for these hacks to be true then Zoe and Phil's email accounts must be compromised. In which case we should have major upcoming dox dumps, except for the fact that Zoe and Phil seem to still be in control of their email accounts.

Not to mention that it takes hours or days to regain control of hacked Twitter accounts.

No. 8902

From /v/

Polytron was hosted on Cloudflare. The changes made to the page can only be made by the owner.

Phil and his cohorts have obviously arranged a staged event in which several high crimes were committed.

1) false accusation of a felony
2) Breach of contract with industry giants Sony and Microsoft
3) Cyber terrorism (for uploading a bot that attacks the FBI)
4) Felony corruption for divulging usernames and passwords of his employees to the public

It was obviously not Anonymous or 4chan. To falsely state that it was a moderator from 4chan is libel.

Phil is going to prison. Everyone involved in this scandal is going to prison. These people aren't even celebrities, they're middle class American and Canadian brats. They do not give a fuck about the law, the law does not give a fuck about them.

The file on his "hacked" site contained private figures from Steam, Microsoft, and Sony. In Microsoft's case, the archive also contained source files for Fez on 360. We're talking about a product that generated six figure sales for a Fortune 500 company. Their lawyers are going to demand an investigation, and it isn't going to be pretty.

The archive on the site also contained a masked executable. This EXE runs a bot that emails violent terrorist threats to the FBI.

Also, this "attack" implicates that Cloudflare has weak encryption, which it objectively does not. This "attack" will also be investigated by Cloudflare, whose security specialists will review the server logs.

No. 8905


CloudFlare is not a host. It's a reverse proxy that sits in front of your server and absorbs the traffic.

The name servers for Polytron are set to MediaTemple so that's probably where the actual server is hosted.

All you need to do is gain access to the real MediaTemple server and make the changes there which will propagate to CloudFlare within a few seconds.

CloudFlare is absolutely irrelevant. As much as chanfags claim to be experts of the internet, 99% of them are completely tech illiterate.

>This may seem harsh but the truth is these people are overwhelmingly young and very naive, angry and bitter, emotionally stunted and honestly quite dumb. These guys (it's always guys) tend to be unattractive and have poor social skills that are reflected in their horrible opinions about women and their inability to date successfully. They're bitter at people - especially women - who are having regular sex because they're not. They're mad at anyone else who happens to be happy with a significant other in their lives or who keeps a healthy circle of friends. They're likely still living at home, in debt from college and often not financially stable (they feel "poor"). It makes them upset about women's advancements in the workplace, AA policies that don't benefit them and other minorities getting ahead in any little way. They basically can't stand anyone who's enjoying life and not spending their days bitching endlessly about other people. They're alone, regarded as stupid, lead empty lives, contribute nothing to anything meaningful and they know it. You attack the flaws in "their" beloved forms of media (comics, games, movies), ban them from a messageboard, etc., and they become enraged to the point of mental breakdown and start making death threats because that's all they have in their miserable, pathetic lives.

-person has partner
-person has sex with five journalists who then give her game some good reviews
-when partner finds out they were cheated on they tell the Internet and the internet explodes
-person pretends they are the victim
-person fakes being hacked and more hilarious stuff

That thunderfoot video is bullshit.

1 hour ago (edited)

WTF. Are you click-baiting? Skip 90% (@19:30) of this video to get the the Zoe Quinn-relevant part.. the whole 30 seconds of it. This whole video you're rehashing old shit about R. Watson and Sarkaesian(sp?) which is already in other videos you made. I understand you want to hop on the Zoe-drama reporting train, but for God's sake, do it properly, man! Just referring to Aristocrat's video in the end– while having QUINNSPIRACY in the title – is pretty underhanded and lazy. Thumbs down."

No. 9676

It's more likely that she made up "Zoe Quinn" for accessibility and to be edgy. "Chelsea Van Valkenburg" doesn't scream indie game dev, plus thezoepost mentioned she had problems with her family–so she probably wants to separate herself from them.

I mean, why does Phillipe Poisson go by "Phil Fish"? It's an edgy/"quirtky", simple name, that fits the "industry".

No. 9703


To me "Phillipe Poisson" sounds edgier. Phillipe Poisson = Phil Fish in French.

But Wikipedia says Phillipe Poisson is his original name. He's such a dumb ass he can't event run with his birth name.

No. 9732

If she really is a Van Valkenburg of the "Moneybags" Van Valkenburgs, it could point towards an explanation of why so many people are trying to cover this up. It's unknown how well her relationship to her family is, but maybe she has a business card of one of their lawyers? Doesn't even contact them, just name drops and these sites shit their pants when they google the name and see a fancy Harvard law degree.

No. 9859

I'm more concerned that these flare ups happen to people that aren't directly involved. Why the fuck would anyone want to hack Phil Fish? Why would someone want to hack TFYC?? An answer that would make sense is a third party who just wants to stir shit. Hacking Fish and TFYC don't do anything to help or hinder the "ultimate goal" of exposing shitty journalism. Just creates a smokescreen that makes everything chaotic for a few hours, or a day. Unless it's a Van Valkenburg conspiracy false flagging to look like a 3rd party shit stirrer.

No. 9867

Just a wild speculation, but isn't it not entirely unfeasible that this has been, among other things, a viral campaign to get TFYC more cash? Like, that that was the end goal all along.

No. 9868

No because Quinn got it shut down originally, there was no coverage because Quinn wasn't involved. The message wasn't getting out.

It's only through happenstance we came across the Game Jam thing while working through Zoe's past.

I'm more interested in the ex-husband. If we know who he is we can find her legal name in docs and see if she has enough family power to be unique in the censorship.

/v/ is going full retard with this old money conspiracy shit. Unless they strike gold and find something like a murder charge against her real name it's a complete dead end.

Eron still comes off as a try hard pussy. Who the fuck says "explicate" in ordinary conversation? "Elaborate" or "elucidate" would more accurate and more common words.

I love how he still thinks that Depression Quest is a good game that pushes the boundaries of the definition of a "game". These kind of text games have been pretty common on iOS for the last 2 years or so and are 10 years ahead of Zoe's crap.

Device 6 was a lot of people's choice for game of the year in 2013 and it beats the fuck out of shit like DQ.

>These kind of text games have been pretty common on iOS for the last 2 years
These kind of text games are literally what video games looked like when computer games became a thing in the 60s/70s.

No. 9992


That's not true at all. If you played any of the old text based games and some of the newer ones you'd know they are completely different.

Old style text based games only use text as an input and display method. There may be a plot but they're not interested in telling a story per se.

The new style text games are really more like interactive graphic novels. They want to tell a story and use the medium to amplify it.

What makes Depression Quest so bad is that it doesn't use the medium at all (unless the medium is 90s web pages) and it does nothing to help build atmosphere. Even the story itself is shit and focuses on unique encounters and multiple endings and other shit that actually detracts from telling a good story.

How Eron can believe that Zoe is pushing boundaries is beyond me. Even Blackbar on iOS is better than DQ, and that game made me ragequit because it relies entirely on you having the same daily vocabulary as the writer. But at least it told a story that piques your interest enough to want to know what is happening to the characters.

I've been following the Wikipedia side of this. Wikipedia's policy is to describe reliable, published sources. In order to keep the article true, it needs to be proven that the sources covering her are not reliable. Here are the standards.

This works. We were able to get the Escapist taken off the accepted source list because of Greg Tito's statement admitting they do not fact check on these topics.

Focus on the following sites:
Daily Beast
Daily Dot
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Euclid most definitely is in Quinn's camp. Stradivarius I am not so sure on. I honestly think he wants to follow Wikipedia's policy. So if "credible" news articles are backing up Quinn, then he will support them. But for the record he was in favor of changing the working about Quinn's fake harassment from WizardChan last Dec as "Quinn reported being harassed". So I think he is overall a neutral party.

This is why we need to discredit the news outlets. They are proven to be corrupt then we can ignore what they say.

Well looking at the page's history…

>Randomly created on May 30 2014 by Shaun Edmonds. Some random gay cosplaying gamer guy who created his Wikipedia account only to create the Zoe Quinn article.

>Pushed for deletion by a Wikipedia reviewer for lack of notability.

>In flies Missvain to rescue the article. Her entire reason for being on Wikipedia seems to be to create articles about women. She describes herself as "a consultant who works works with organizations and individuals regarding cultural heritage, open culture, women-centric, and free knowledge services. I'm a feminist, with a proud history of being independent and passionate about the role of women in Wikipedia and beyond"

So basically she has a Wikipedia page because she's a woman and feminists hold women to lower standards.

My friend had his Wikipedia page deleted a few years ago for lack of notability. Even though if you search for his name on Wikipedia it's mentioned in other articles because he was a prominent modder and has been a lead developer on AAA titles before. Yet making shit like Depression Quest gets you an article because a bunch of white knights will defend you.

I looked for other Wikipedia articles of people I know. Even though most of them are mentioned in various pages on Wikipedia, only one of them has an article (well actually his company has an article but it's mostly about him anyway).

But then his article is mostly about some industry drama he was involved in relating to companies exploiting indie devs. His article survives because he was quoted on game journalist sites and those qualify as sources on Wikipedia.

So it strikes me that Wikipedia's notability and source requirements create a bias towards drama queens. Someone could be an industry giant but if "journalists" don't talk about them they barely matter. This is why Zoe Quinn's article is longer than Kim Swift's.

(Also note that Kim Swift's article wasn't created until June 2012, five years after the release of Portal.)

Small victory gentlemen. On Quinn's Wikipedia page, it has been edited to show that Zoe Quinn's 2013 "harassment" from WizardChan was just from her own twitter account.
Before it said: "In attempting to publish the game through Steam's Greenlight service in December 2013, Quinn was the target of harassment both online and through sexually explicit phone calls."

Now it says: " In attempting to publish the game through Steam's Greenlight service in December 2013, Quinn reported being the target of harassment both online and through sexually explicit phone calls."

It's similar to how other net idols have tried to get sympathy by posting obvious fake hate and it just reads generic comments like "DIEDIEDIEDIE" because they're not creative enough to think of what their critics are actually criticizing them for.

Man, the Wikipedia situation is a fucking joke. They're even avoiding following their own policies, sourcing articles that equate taking control over someone elses character in a game via an exploit to rape, and removing sources listed as reliable.

I introduced a friend who has a PHd in Women's Studies to some SWJ tumblr blogs and she almost had a heart attack. She said most those blogs threatened to set feminist issues back a decade or two. The misinformation and absolute diatribe these women propagate is incredibly naive, self-serving, and
damaging. She couldn't even start on the Zoe scandal and the way Zoe uses feminism as a crutch for spreading female stereotypes in low female to male ratio professions.

Some evidence that she may have been faking donations. Could be that she donated with a private name (she uses some account labelled Patrick or some shit). Since it's a charity they're probably going to No Comment on it soon to avoid the drama. Once found out she changed the link to lead to some national hotline that's too big to care.

Oh fucking wow.

I no longer give a shit what happens to her, she deserves anything negative things may happen to her. ANYTHING.

Making money off of depression by "raising awareness" with a shitty game that doesn't do a good job at doing just that was bad enough. But now she's not even donating money to the charities. She can go rot.

I'm glad to hear that there are people who study this who aren't insane. I always keep an open mind when I hear a reasonable person say they support equality and feminism, but if some random person says they're a feminist I'm instantly skeptical. I think the damage is largely already done.

They don't let any random person edit an article once it's protected. There are varying degrees of protection, to my understanding. Check out the World of Wikipedia article on ED for a very factual look at shit that obviously doesn't happen.

If she seriously thinks she's the most hated person then she's 100% crazy. The internet's pretty much moved on from her. Hasn't Chris-chan been around for like five years now and there's a wiki dedicated to trolling and hating on him?
The whole thing is just her trying to get the hate directed back to her. Probably for profit. Your patreon gets you fucking $3000/month, how much more do you want you greedy cunt.

holy shit. she really is playing it up like it's because she's "feminist". but why would a feminist cheat on her boyfriend with at least five guys? why would a feminist profit off of depression and commit fraud? why would a feminist supress and harrass a project that would promote female game designers? these aren't things that are rumors either. they're facts.

So who heard of EmmaYouAreNext.com? The site promising the release nudes of Emma Watson. Based on GamerGate and The Fappening, a lot of the media believed 4chan was targeting Emma due to her recent speech at the UN in support of feminism.

See these big media outlets following the anti-4chan line:
> Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/film/2014/sep/23/feminists-rally-emma-watson-4chan-nude-photo-threats
> BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/29322764

But now that the countdown on EmmaYouAreNext.com has ended, what happens when yo go there? See the pic.

Rantic.com does not seems to be a real marketing company and appears to be the same source as the GTA V PC version cancelled prank

Most successful 4chan media prank since hackers on steroids?

Also Emma's actual UN speech speech seems to have been a bit of a joke.

> Emma Watson: "Feminism too often linked with man-hating"

> She is launching a campaign called HeForShe, which aims to get more men and boys fighting for equal rights.

Anyway, it was clear from the start they were bluffing and didn't have shit or else we would have seen them all by now. None of the other celeb nudes were held until someone decided they didn't agree with what she said.

It's not even that new a concept. This is just a clear case of them getting caught red-handed doing it.

Heard it indirectly, was unsure why 4chan users would have the control or whatever to keep her n00ds hidden. Seemed unlikely, like >>14524 said.

There's no sister campaign?

It's true that we need to work for equality, but I am not ever calling myself a feminist. I'm fine with explaining myself each time. Educated people seem to see where I'm coming from.

She touched on the subject of men suffering from gender stereotypes. Strange, seeing how this has nothing to do with what she's talking about. She just brought it up and then abandoned the issiue.

The "commitment" you're supposed to make is:

"Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it is a human rights issue that requires my participation. I commit to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls"

Yeah, that sounds pretty equal. Gender equality is everyones issiue, so lets focus on the girls. Getting to have a speech at the UN, but not thinking it through enough. Shame on her.

>She touched on the subject of men suffering from gender stereotypes. Strange, seeing how this has nothing to do with what she's talking about. She just brought it up and then abandoned the issiue.

Whenever feminists touch on those stereotypes it's always stuff like men not being emotional. Yet as a guy I'm as emotional as I want to be. I'm not suppressed.

Feminists seem to be concerned about the growing humanist and men's rights movements and so are more eager than ever to involve men. But it basically amounts to a bunch of patronising women telling men that they know what's best for us.

I don't see how people like this can be trusted to achieve equality.

>I don't do a thing therefore all men do not have this problem

When my boyfriend's cat died he tried so hard to cry, but nothing would come out.
He was so overwhelmed with sadness and yet he no outlet for which to release this outlet. What followed was a few hours of horrible, dry sobs with no tears to show for anything as his mental state wrestled with his emotional state, and this was because his entire life he had been conditioned from birth to always be the tough guy, the hard man, to never show weakness, to never let anybody see you cry, to never cry full stop.

TL;DR, shut up.

Feminists want to be in control, and insist that men can't be allies. So yes you have to listen to them. Men and women a like. If you don't agree you have internalized hatred.

No. 14657

Crying can be hard. This is normal for all manner of reasons. It CAN be because of it being percieved as emasculating.

But listen to what he's actually saying. There are some quite pressing issiues that aren't just "oh you can't cry". Stuff like drafting men to combat roles, custody being won almost exclusively by women, or if you want more social issiues try the inherent inequality of heterosexual dating.

There's no reason for you to tell him to shut up.

I do, too. I don't attribute it to gender roles. I have far more important personal problems relating to gender than not having an easy time crying.

No. 14865

Oh my, not even making the world worse, it's dooming the world. I wouldn't argue that cheating, nepotism and loss of journalistic integrity would have such a severe impact, but…

>#7. "The Whole Thing Is an Ex-Boyfriend's Revenge"

Considering the extensive coverage this has recieved, arguing that this is only about the aspect of her cheating on her boyfriend is inexcusable. But hell, pretend exploiting your sexual attractiveness, specific to your gender in this heteronormative society, is fair and equal conduct befitting someone claiming to be a feminist.

>#6. There's #Gamergate Porn

Because this is relevant how? The main issiue they seem to take is with drawings of Vivian. Also, I find it funny how they hate on futa/trap drawings of Viv. I was under the impression that inceasing acceptance of transsexuals was one of the goals of modern feminism? But I guess they're supposed to be treated differently- no porn of them allowed, clearly. Equality, people!

Next, they go on to hate image related. Clearly, it's intended as fapfuel. Drawing ponos and vagoo are signs of a doomed society, people.

>#5. The Lawyers Against Gaming Corruption

What about the elephant in the room? You know, the whole conflict of interest and corruption thing of the subject we're talking about?

>#4. Zombie Social Media

I suppose I can agree. People blindly defending or attacking in this matter are jackoffs. Quite like the author in this article, who doesn't know what they're talking about.

>#3. The Sworn Enemies of Justice

Apparently, critizing tumblr feminism is a sign of the end times. I'd like to argue the exact opposite.

>#2. The Alleged Corruption Never Happened

Holy shit on a saltine, this guy is fucking retarded.
>The alleged scandal is a pathetic fantasy. A woman bestowing sexual favors so that men will look at the video game she made?
Well, there's that, which we KNOW happened, but there's also the fact that she committed fraud, claiming to donate to charity, but doesn't have the reciepts to back it up.

>#1. #Gamergate Is the Wrong Banner

I'm confused, really. Apparently, since this hashtag is used by jackoffs, one ought abandon it. It's not like it's valuable for keeping discussion of this in one place OH WAIT. But suppose twitter banned it or so. A new one would spring, and it'd be exactly the same, albeit a tiny bit smaller. Imagine all such things were magically banned, and now you have censorship. And again people, this is an article titled "7 Reasons "Gamergate" Proves Humanity is Doomed". Using the wrong hashtag. I'll collect my cyanide pill on the way out, thank you very much.

Shit like this drains me. I need a fucking reality check, to make sure I haven't gone insane and that I'm living in some nightmarish world where people vehemently defend cheating, lying hypocrites.

These are people who don't understand the internet and are trying to take advantage of it, it's as simple as that.

It's also fear mongering as Anita is basically saying to her followers that they should take stupid threats seriously. Anita may be disingenuous but such a mindset would be really damaging to one of her young followers who believes everything she says.

But that's pretty much how a lot of the cultish SJW stuff works. Even "mainstream" feminism is very fear based.

sorry for bumping an old thread but I need to get this out of my system because I just found it
Exactly. It's horrible how a cesspool of vice and pretty much the pure essence of free speech is scared of one goddamn manipulative camwhore who guilt trips and blames people for her own mistakes and selfishness, doesn't have any talent of her own so she just needs to cover it by crying and being as much of a bitch as she can.

I'm a female in tech. I've always been interested in computers and I currently have a degree in computer science and I'm specialized in web programming. So it goes without saying that 90% of the time I'm the only woman present. And thanks to people like Sarkeesian and Quinn, I will continue to be. They're the ones who are scaring women off the whole field, telling them to take every piece of critique as a misogynist attack, encouraging women to be as thin-skinned and helpless as possible, demonizing the whole industry just because it's male-dominated. Well guess fucking what, in IT you don't get anywhere without skills. It doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman, if you're a good programmer you're taken seriously and you'll get a job. If you're a shit programmer, then it shows. Programming has concrete results to show and your understanding of the paradigm is easy to test, so you can't really fake your career. Cold mathematical logic is objective.

These bitches are so busy whining about everything that they PRESUME is wrong with the industry just for a quick buck to support their own bullshit projects. They're using peoples' good intentions and riding on the subject of feminism just to support their own agenda. This is nowhere better showcased than in what Zoe did to that tFYC game jam. She purposely ruined a group encouraging women to start making games just because she felt it was competing with her snowflake project.

It's like the whole world is crazy. I see rabid articles building a strawmen army of misogynist terrorists to defend their queens and throw all the ethics of journalism out of the window. They don't even bother to check the facts or interview anyone from the opposite side, they just come up with quotes from "scary internet anons" that can't be validated for legitimacy in the sense that it's some goddamn anonymous person in the internet spewing crap on Twitter. All criticizing discussion of Zoe and Sarkeesian is deleted and banned around the web. What the hell is happening?

I'm pretty sure that if I just wrote an article how I was violently raped at my workplace because I'm a woman in tech and that's what regularly happens to women in tech, ezines like Gawker would swallow it without a question and print it out without never checking the facts and slap on a couple of clickbaiting headers.

You got defensive for no fucking reason and whether you like or not, Quinn is still up to her usual bullshit and so is Anita. It's horseshit like that that makes ALL fucking women look bad.

Here's an idea; Don't rely so heavily on lolcow for entertainment that when you see a thread which you don't give a fuck about get bumped, you get ass ravaged because it isn't about what -you- want to be a gossipy cunt about.

What the fuck are you talking about?

She mentioned that as someone who works in the field while representing the minority gender she knows it's due to the person's own incompetence if her or she is not skilled enough. IT is like one of the few industries that don't have a wage gap between women and men because your pay is evaluated by your skill which can be easily measured by your results.

>I have a science degree in a heavily male dominated field as well, and this shit just confirms that most girls in fields where the female to male ratio is 1 to 50 have some sort of attention whore complex where they constantly need to make irrelevant situations about them.

The fact that there are few guys here is evidence that she's giving an honest opinion.

She wasn't saying she's unique amongst her gender, just that some women in male-majority fields like programming and game dev are completely fucking crazy and take all forms of interaction as perceived slights or discrimination. Look at people like Shanley and Sarkeesian for prime examples.

Disclaimer: I'm a male who works in tech. I'd love to have more women in the industry, and the only woman coworker I had was a lot better than many of her male colleagues. I'm not sexist, I just don't like narcissists and professional victims. The industry grows more and more SJW by the year.

No. 42670

By irrelevant I mean that the situation itself is IRREVELVANT. Not her relation to gamergate. I mean gamergate itself is irrelevant. I repeat. Gamergate is irrelevant and she comes here to try to make it relevant by relating it back to herself. Which it does relate to her, but why does she feel the urge to make this defunct debacle relevant again? Because she needs her slice of attention whore pie that she missed out on. I have no issues with venting. But I would have thought that a 3 month old thread would be bumped with new scandals or information, but instead what do you know lol. It's about a girl proving she's an oh so cool programmer who hates them sjw.

All you're doing is rehashing her arguments. I'm not saying her points aren't invalid. The fact that she needs to bump the months old gamergate thread just to whine and vent about her experiences as a womyn in STEM~ just prove how much attention starved she really is. She couldn't have just, oh I don't know, not commented and kept that shit to herself? No one cares about this anymore, at least on here. She brought no new information to the table. She just wanted to talk about herself and how she's so much better than women in her field.

>This also happened fairly recently. After a discussion about Gamergate in Facebook I was told (by a Quinn supporter, who actually had no fucking idea what GG was about) that I'm not a real feminist because I don't defend lying, manipulative camwhores.

>Because I want to see more women get interested in CS and possibly game development people like Quinn and Sarkeesian aren't good role models for girls who might be interested. They don't have any talent and nothing to show off their hard work besides a massive victim complex. Yet they're the ones who get the spotlight instead of actual female developers. Even they themselves don't help recognize female workers in the tech field, they're only talking about themselves and ruining competitors (again, the tFYC case). Which is sickening because they're using people for their own benefit, it reminds me of a charity that collects money for some noble cause but keeps all the dough for itself. Oh wait, Sarkeesian did do that.

>The fact that she needs to bump the months old gamergate thread just to whine and vent about her experiences as a womyn in STEM~ just prove how much attention starved she really is.

Excuse me, but you've spanned like 10 replies here with your incoherent rage that wouldn't even have existed if I hadn't mentioned my gender in my first post. Just ignore it and let the thread sink.

>She couldn't have just, oh I don't know, not commented and kept that shit to herself? No one cares about this anymore, at least on here.

I could say the same to you.

Polite sage this time.

Also correcting myself.
>I want to see more women in the IT field and people scaring them off by telling they'll get harassed by default aren't helping.

What I meant to say was:

>I want to see more women in the IT field and people WHO KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT THE INDUSTRY BECAUSE THEY DON'T WORK THERE OR HAVE A QUALIFYING DEGREE OR ANY EXPERIENCE BESIDES TROLLS IN THE INTERNET scaring them off by telling they'll get harassed by default aren't helping.

Oh for fuck's sake you may think you're calling her out on her "attention whore" ways but the truth is that you're a much more autistic motherfucker trying to bitch and moan about someone else venting. From her post I don't see her being "teehee I'm the only woman in IT" but rather "I'm the only woman in IT most of the time and it annoys me that two bitches are going to keep it that way for a while thanks to their shit antics".

Seriously go back to 4chan to be a whiny cunt.

Jesus Christ THANK YOU. I read her post, thought it was also insightful, and this faggot bitch starts chewing her out. Typical catty bitch that is impossible to work with (most of you know the type).

We do whatever the fuck we want here. Thread is old and someone bumps it? I'm sorry, I didn't know someone was fucking you with a sandpaper dildo every time an old thread got bumped. THERE IS NO RULE ON BUMPING OLD THREADS. Get the sand out of your vag already.
