Wow, what the heck... Crazy chick, please put her in some institution. She needs to be away from the general populace. It's one thing to harbor some amount to racism, sexism, etc. but to sit there and promote it that heavily? Not to mention the way she goes about it. What a sad thing to see, she's really misguided. I hope she gets better one day, but I doubt that will happen with the way she's acting. IGF are no better either, for playing it off like she was just "joking". Yeah right, that's laughable.

Might be time to make an IGF replacement also.

IGF actually fired her and a few hours later, apologized and asked her to come back.

I mean I shouldn't have expected more from a bunch of nepotist a-holes that contributed to the success of games made by judges' friends but still...

Here's their statement;

She's right she has all that power...yet it was for nothing cuz she was kicked off.Next time maybe try not saying something stupid.

Just glad the people when about it in a professional way of gettinf rid of her.

No they apologized to her and said they'd love to have her back.

Feminism is about equality. This woman wants superiority. That is not how human beings should treat one another.

Feminism is not about equality. Its about taking away the privileges of men and giving them to women. Equal pay and better jobs are male privileges. Women are spared from war, and we are supposed to sacrifice ourselves to protect women. Equality will be reached when there thousands of women in combat and their chivalry, free drinks, discounts, police protection, domestic case bias, and preservation of life ends. These are the female privileges.

Is this a troll account? It has to be a troll account. No one in their right mind thinks like this. Well, unless you're a complete uninformed idiot online who does nothing but spout garbage.

Yes, it is a womans privilege to not have any freedom. You ever think there arent as many women in certain work fields more because of bias against hiring them? No? FantasmA, thanks for letting everyone in the world know that women are so lucky to have people like you around. You bloody idiot you.

I swear some of you on here have no idea about anything other than video games. Some of you should be ashamed of what you say online. Every article is an argument on here anymore.

@WeAreLegion > Thank god someone on this site knows what feminism is actual about. Male and female equality. Not cutting off every mans dick. But others would like to think so...
