If you don’t know who Zoe Quinn is, she’s a woman who created a shitty video game (if you can call what she vomited a video game) about depression. To get visibility for her so called video game, she cheated on her boyfriend with 5 different guys. On top of that she verbally abused and gaslighted her now ex-boyfriend. This was one of the events that caused the GamerGate scandal to explode.
Despite Zoe’s unethical and evil behavior, she has an army of manginas willing to do her bidding. The Corruption In Video Game Journalism Facebook page said it well.
She could do anything, ANYTHING she fucking wants and still have a legion of followers back her purely because she is a girl. If she was man this would be a non-story, nobody would care about the harassment, nobody would give him the benefit of the doubt, nobody would pull articles down all over the net for his privacy.
You know what it comes down to? These people treat women like fucking children, poor helpless creatures that need to be protected. It fucking disgust’s me that people like this have such absurd pull in both the industry and the media. Yet we can’t even debate the issue without instantly discrediting the entire movement as sexists because we dared to criticise a public female figure.
When you look at Zoe Quinn’s ability to manipulate legions of manginas, something no man could do, she is an example of how the Thrint really is a metaphor for women.
