The Independent Games Festival today stood by one of their game judges to making comments on twitter such as "kill all men" and claiming she would not vote for games with male characters in them.
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; https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.a...
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.
C'mon, IGF. Don't feed the trolls.
.......... I ..........
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...
they support racketeering.
That person is nuts, here's more proof. http://tweetsave.com/xmatti...
Yeah wow. Missed that one. Racism too then.
I'm just wondering what the reaction would be, if it was a man making these kinds of statements towards women. Would the gaming media report on this (1st time I'm hearing about this and I come here everyday) and would IGF retract and apologize to said man? I doubt it.
Add offensive to homosexuals... queer indeed... smh
Yeah I agree completely, I was considering adding that point to my comment, but was a little late in editing it. If a man said, "Kill all women". They dang sure wouldn't apologize to him and say "we'd love to have you back". Usually I don't get fired up about stuff like this, but in this case it's just sickening. Gloating about her 'power', and all that. Such blatant narcissism on her part, acting like she's better than others, and like I said above. IGF is absolutely at fault as well. Considering their stance on the issue, they're either agreeing with her mentality, or they're simply too cowardly to call her out on it. Whichever the case may be, IGF is now a joke. A very bad one at that.
It's extremely disappointing that the IGF gave into the demands of those hateful harassers. Not that it needs to be, but just to clarify the harassers are the SJWs.
Justice should be taken out of their name. They're not doing anyone any favors by backing such a blatant sexist.
What part of "Kill All Men" doesn't seem sexist to them? I don't see the punchline to that "joke". What does it take for this woman to be viewed as a sexist? Really? What? I see men getting called misogynist for sneezing the wrong way and cast away in darkness. This type of stuff is just getting crazy. My brain is hurting from thinking about it. "Okay. Maybe, just MAYBE she's sexist. Sure she may have gone to prison for killing men in a drunken rampage. BUT...I'm willing to invite her back to the IGF panel when she's out of prison." - IGF [Parody] I don't care if you're a man, woman, or a tuna fish sandwich. If you're an A-Hole, you're an A-Hole. I'll call out A-Holes when I see them. Doesn't matter what's between their legs. She's a Grade-A certified A-Hole.
It's all about who is the most oppressed. A white male cannot suggest sexism or oppression at the hands of a female because women have been more oppressed than men so we don't get to speak to women about being oppressive or men being victims. At least that's how it seems to work in the mind of these people. Some interesting stuff going on lately between white feminists and black men because activists on both sides feel they are the "most" oppressed by the other
