Prominent PC indie developer in bed with gaming journalists, and other devs Pt.2

People have mentioned getting this reported on the news...

I'm very sceptical of it ever happening. But I will say this. I'm not sure about news channels, but tabloud journalists want to sell papers, and I have a feeling that "Breaking News, sexist gamers harass, threaten and spread nudes of feminist" is a lot more likely to sell papers than the actual true story.

That said, what do you think about the indie developer who came out on Twitter that he was sexually harassed by her at Phil Fish's wedding and was immediately dog piled into submission by the industry into shutting up. People confirmed he was at that wedding and none of them refuted what he said, only told him to shut up and neither did he take back what he said, only apologized for saying it.


It's pretty hypocritical when one side gets a free pass because of their gender, all while screaming about sexism in the industry.

The way Fish attacked that guy just seemed really weird and "off" (I don't know of a better way to put it).

It's like he was talking in code or something.

Also there was the other guy who was told he couldn't express his opinions where zoe could see them if he wanted to keep working in the industry. That's always nice too.

Calling somebody hypocritical is only valid criticism in an environment where reason and rationality are expected. This is not such an environment.

Loud and clear. Continue to ***** and moan about a person's personal life


It's no longer about her, It hasn't been for well over a week.

as well as industry implications that probably won't ever affect you personally


What part of this don't you understand? It's clear that you're either one of the countless shills defending her or you haven't take the 30 mins it would take to read why people are upset...Which is it?

On a serious note, the VAST majority of feminists don't want true equality. They want equal benefits. The way i see it, if you want equality, you get equality, but you don't get to pick and chose where you want things to be equal and where you don't.

The whole concept of equality is kind of skewed though, because men and women *aren't* equal. Really, there is no species on earth where both sexes are equal, which means that equality can only be based on subjective circumstance. Which means true equality can't exist, and that even my original argument of only getting to be equal in all things is rubbish, as it simply isn't feasible.

I'm no longer sure what the point of my post was. ...

I understand sleeping with the press or (relative)authority figures, but the topic clearly says other developers as though that's somehow bad.
Not really seeing what's wrong with developers sleeping with other developers.


It has to do with how quickly some of them, specifically Phil Fish, less so other indie devs, came to her defense and played the "It's the act of sex" card to spread misinformation.

We should really carry over the links in each topic, so each person can follow along

The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?
