This is the first time that a significant subset of Tumblr, 4chan, and Reddit ARE ALL IN AGREEMENT AND ARE UNITED IN THEIR OUTRAGE.
When you can unite the three factions that hate each other above all else into a single entity calling for an end to your career in a specific industry, YOU DONE FUCKED UP SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE.
am-asks said: It's not so much that she cheated on her boyfriend as who she cheated on him with; her (married) boss, several big names in the indie game scene who conveniently helped promote her game, and -the guy who wrote the review of her game for kotaku-
Oh. So, apart from trying to piggyback her game off of a tragic death, and pretending to be “doxxed” by 4chan (familiar behavior I’d expect from someone on tumblr), she basically climbed up the ladder to success using her vagina, and then tried to use it again to suffocate others into silence after this information was made public.
bprinny said: So, you may not have heard of this, and you might not ever care, but when this Zoe Quinn thing was blowing up, any discussion of her was getting taken off the Internet. Not just gaming forums, but places like reddit, and even 4chan, were having threads relating to Zoe get deleted. I think threads are still getting deleted on reddit.
Oh, we know. But most important… WHAT ABOUT THIS WOMAN IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT THAT THERE IS A CROSS-INTERNET MULTI-SITE AND CONCERTED EFFORT TO WHITEWASH HER ACTIONS?
Seriously… think about this:
THE FUCKING HOST OF VIDEO GAME COMMUNITY GAMESNOSH…
and on and on and on…
Each of these websites has censored, struck down, or done their damndest to squelch discussion about this ONE WOMAN..
What the fuck about her makes her so terribly important that all of these sites are collectively shitting themselves to benefit her?
What the fuck is going on?
This is not about the fact that she cheated on her boyfriend with
This is about the fact that she slept with Nathan Grayson, Joshua Boggs, and Robin Arnott, who have notable presence in the video game industry and have connections. This is about the fact that she traded sex for favors…
Anonymous said: I am seeing something on my dash about a woman named Zoe Quinn. Seriously, she's all over the place. Some people are talking shit about her and other people defend her? Who is she? What has she done? What's going on?
I’ll tell you what I know, in tl;dr format:
>Group starts contest for women who want to make games
>Winners of first contest get free concept art
>Concept art would get spread on social media
>most popular concept would get made into game
>Winner would get 8% royalties, all other profits would go to charity
Queue Zoe Quinn’s entrance
>Zoe Quinn says that the contest is “oppressive”
>Sends hate tweets to the contest holders
>Gets at least one of them doxxed
>Gets her “gaming journalist” friends to write bad articles about the contest
>Zoe Quinn makes her own “game”
>Essentially not a game at all
>It’s a game about Depression
>People criticize her portrayal of depression
>She says she’s being harassed
>Says she’s being trolled/harassed by wizardchan (an imageboard dedicated to basically nothing but Disney)
>More “gaming journalists” write articles for her
>Same “journalists” give positive reviews for her game
>Her game somehow gets through Steam Greenlight
Queue Zoe Quinn’s (ex)boyfriend
>Ex-bf makes a blog
>blog is literally nothing but one post
>Explains a bunch of horrible shit she did relationship-wise
>Turns out she cheated on him
>with like 5 people
>one of whom was married
>oh, and they were all those “gaming journalists” giving her good reviews and defending her
>Somebody makes a video criticizing Zoe Quinn and her behavior
>She gets it taken down for copyright claims
>Video used nothing but a still image
>A still image that was all over the internet already
>In other words the copyright claim was bullshit
>Then InternetAristocrat makes a video, released yesterday, and shit has proceeded to continue blowing up since then.
There ya go anon, hope that helped. Just know that anyone attempting to defend her is nothing but a white knight. She is indefensible, much like Anita Sarkeesian.
Don’t ask, just sign.
