What, don't want to bring up #notyourshield? Brave.

I’m not bringing it up because it’s a sad situation where people who are part of oppressed groups have been misled to believe that they’re not in any negative situation, and that the people trying to help them are the enemy. I have nothing bad to say about them because they’re not stupid, simply misled and told the wrong things by the wrong people.

Misled?  Really?  These oppressed people just aren’t as smart as their paternalist protectors, right?

Maybe—just maybe—you’re entirely wrong about this movement.  And each time you assign someone as a “gender traitor” or a “race traitor” because they think differently than you, you’re the actual asshole.

I’m a feminist who is tired of being a public relations scapegoat.  I am not “misinformed”.  I have the agency to think on my own; I have control over myself; I realize that there are many oppressive groups in control of me.

But the most oppressive of all is the group who says “There’s no way you can think for yourself.  Follow me—for your own good.”

Some of you reading this may have read editorials and reviews by me on sites I’ve written for. My name is Ashton Liu, and I am a contributing editor for RPGFan. This post is not endorsed or approved by RPGFan. By writing this, I have effectively “gone rogue.” I am attaching my name as a sign…

What the fuck happened with Tumblr?

Disclaimer: What you’re about to read is my experience and opinion I’ve formed after spending quite of time here.

This is fucking it. I can’t be here anymore. I joined this site few years ago to have fun with people who are into same thing as I am (games and shits), and you know what, I did have…

More on Zoe Quinn, on Rich White Indie People Problems, and on Journalistic Integrity

Ultimately, the idiot misogynists will leave.

Those trying to shout over the misogynists, to reveal what Zoe Quinn did to the pro-feminist gaming charity The Fine Young Capitalists, will leave.  Those trying to shout over the misogynists, to reveal what Zoe did to the $400,000 Game Jam project, will leave.  Those trying to shout over the misogynists, to reveal what Zoe did to Wizardchan or how she scapegoated /v/ or how she got a reddit mod to censor facts, will leave.  Those trying to hold her to the same standards as Josh Mittingly, given a much smaller amount of evidence, will leave.

There will be no one left but “Twitter activists” supporting her against a now-imagined threat.  Never seeing the evidence because every journalist had to recuse themselves from carrying it.  These “activists” will fight no one.  They will shout at the void.  They will feed Africans on a diet of up-thumbs; they will cure diseases by retweeting videos.

And real feminists will stick their noses into a collection by Audre Lorde, shrug, and be forced to accept that the patriarchs gave them something that resembled progress.

This is fucking beautiful. You can literally role play an asexual character and still have a romance where you don’t sleep with them until your character feels like it’s a good time as opposed to “We’re together? Time for the tent!”

I'm a normal guy who plays games and I don't really read "gaming news sites" or reviews that aren't user reviews. Should I care at all about this? And if so why? I'm not trying to be snarky or anything I just really wanna know because when I read about this I didn't really see it as a pressing issue to me, the only reason I read the whole blog post is because I'm nosy and love drama. Sorry if this comes off as rude I just didn't know how else to phrase my questions :( you seem like a cool guy

If you don’t care much about the state of the scene, then no, you probably shouldn’t care too much about this — aside from the extent to which the behaviors outlined in the blog might serve as a cautionary tale for your love life. I hadn’t realized how much those behaviors have reflected other people’s experiences. I’d assumed much of it was Zoe’s unique brand.

So my friends and I were discussing this whole situation and I had to make a diagram.

This is a visual aid to help explain how chronic manipulators (aka, emotional abusers, malignant narcissists, etc) will try every angle they possibly can to reach their desired outcome; shifting and changing as their previous angle becomes unworkable or isn’t having the effect they desire, regardless of whether any of the angles contradict each other or are even truthful in the slightest. 

A lot of us have been in incredibly similar relationships, so it’s been very cathartic to read your story and to see a moment where an abuser isn’t just going to get away with it. 

Thank you so much for posting your account of everything. Hope these get a smile like this out of you and don’t just add salt to the wounds. 

Oh wow. Thank you!
