What all that Zoe Quinn Stuff Was About — A Totally Objective Appraisal of Events, Written by her Ex-boyfriend.

antinegationism:

Oh man. Can’t a guy even blog about his ex without making the internet explode anymore? As TotalBiscuit so wonderfully put it “What the Hell Just Happened?” What’s this about? 

  • Is it about nepotism within the indie dev scene?
    • Yeah kind of. And we’ll get to that.
  • Is it about nepotism between developers and journalists?
    • Again, kind of. And we’ll get to that too.
  • Is it about — as Zoe put it — “a manifesto of [her] sexual past written by an openly malicious ex-boyfriend?”
    • Not really. Any references to her sexual past were specifically censored so as to minimize harassment. And I’ve been spending the past week trying to get people to have more levelheaded discussions.
  • Is it about the effect of SJ in games?
    • Well, only insofar as it ties back to the nepotism thing; and people’s views there seem to be less nuance and more keyboard smash. But we’ll get to it.
  • Is it about — as Zoe’s totally not manipulative response suggested — “a desire to use 4Chan as my own personal army?”
    • Well, this was originally posted on Something Awful and Penny Arcade as threads innocuously titled Cringe-Worthy Break Up Stories. So no. 4Chan just picked it up, and was the only place that didn’t proceed to ban any mention of it. 
  • Maybe it’s about censorship and suppression of information?
  • Or is it about Zoe’s use of headlines from Robin William’s Suicide to make a blog post promoting her game? Is it about doxxing, or harassment, or misogyny?

Imagine your icon tinkering in the garage.  When you ask them what they’re doing, they tell you they’re amplifying the power of an industrial-sized cotton candy maker.

(Sarge’s not my icon but i drew it anyway - i interpreted the industrial-sized cotton candy maker part in my own way lol)

Exercise caution, especially with things labeled “fresh” pizza
