This Female Game Developer Had to Flee Her Home After Speaking Out About Sexism in Gaming
I wonder what these internet tough guys would do if faced with Kurdish female fighters?
Being a woman on the Internet can be scary. But being a woman in the video game industry on the Internet could actually be dangerous. That’s what game developer Brianna Wu found out after speaking out about sexism in the gaming world and her and her husband being forced to leave their home after receiving personal death threats and threats to their business this weekend.
Allegations of sexism in the gaming world are nothing new, but they’ve been especially horrifying lately; game developer Zoe Quinn and critic Anita Sarkeesian have also been targeted with death threats, among others.
