So, the first big conflict between the pseudo-activists and actual women who game has already happened. Well, it was a nice peaceful 24 hours or so we had there of conflict-free 2015..
Anyways, here's the thing, unlike the pseudo-activists I don't pretend to speak for women, so I'm going to let a woman, a feminist, and a gamer, do the talking. Go, out for yourselves, and read Mandy Morbid's post about how she has been harassed and by who (hint: it's the pseudo-activists).
The above would be a very interesting read but not newsworthy in and of itself; but her post got an immediate response from Tracy Hurley, who believes that Aleena the Cleric (the Basic D&D Box Set heroine who is dressed in head-to-toe armor) is a little too sexy to be allowed, shooting back with this lovely piece of bullshit:
Note Fred Hurley's comment. So the response these alleged "feminists" made to Mandy's post was to claim she didn't write it.
But it gets better! After catching flack for it, the Hurleys tried to hide the evidence, deleting Fred's comment. AND, when people started posting the above image, Tracy Hurley started claiming she was going to "file a police report", because in her world, what happened to Mandy Morbid isn't harassment (because feminists she approves of can't possibly harass anyone, or harassing people she disagrees with doesn't actually constitute a wrong, take your pick), but people posting something Fred actually said and then tried to cover up apparent DOES constitute harassment! Hilarious!
Note that she's since deleted her threats to go to the police; I look forward to her claim that reporting on her threats will also constitute harassment.
Sometimes you just have to laugh.
Anyways, well done Mandy, you beat me to the punch: you got to piss off the Swine in 2015 before I could! I must be getting old.
