Imagine this bitch crying in your office because she can't handle her character not making it into the game.

Imagine you acquiesced and she continues making a scene about said character at every opportunity. Too much TITS she whines. Her waist is too SMALL she bleats. Making everything about herself.

Imagine that amazingly, not only was she not fired, she got everything she cried and yelled for.

Now imagine she throws a hissy fit on twitter because her highness was not mentioned in an article about the game.

How the fuck is this shit tolerated in the industry?
Fear is a helluva drug.

The only people who can't be cancelled are the people not afraid of it. When u pander to every corner of society and you end up boxing yourself into a corner where complete and total appeasement is the only option. Submission.

None of this matters what matters if she is good character or not, I like Emil from NieR not because his gay because its well made character.

Why would you say something so controversial, yet so brave?
I wouldn't say its controversial. I just hate games that flaunt their politics in your face. Pretty much every single white male you encounter in Horizon Zero Bore is a villain. I wish they could have developed a second Heavenly Sword. Now that was a bad ass game with a really cool set of female and male characters.

Look at how they framed religion in that game.

Had no idea this was the same person. Insomniac gotta hold the L on this one

Amazingly she's married to a guy. Just imagine being married to her. She must be a laugh riot at work and parties.

"Hey honey, let's go grab dinner at one of the restaurants down the street"

"Ok, let's go to the one that has more lesbians working there"
 
If it’s not supported in the game, does it even matter? How is announcing the sexuality of your character on Twitter after the fact, a la J.K. Rowling, a win for the LGBT community?

LGBT Folks != the ”LGBT Community”. The latter are just a vocal minority within a minority full of deranged, mentally ill folks. The former, aka the *vast* majority of people, don’t give two shits.

Sam Maggs is part of that latter community, hence the virtue signalling.

The thinking is the hardcore part of the community who likes LGBT representation in games (like her since her entire career is based on sexuality/gender content) will see this as a big win because a character is publicly labeled (by her) as lesbian.

And that's what s interesting about it. One part of the group is often loud (both voice and dress) trying to represent all telling the world what to do. Most of the group don't care and just blend in. But all are under the acronym umbrella because at some point someone made it. And it stuck. So even the most vocal member against any loud antics are technically under that acronym as it's used so widely as a blanket grouping.

I actually enjoy seeing the social media banter as I find it entertaining.

And the sad thing is, the vocal minority is just creating *more* actual bigots because people associate all LGBT members with these crazy cunts.

Like StreetsofBeige StreetsofBeige pointed out, they’re all under the same umbrella whether they, or we, like it or not. It’s not much different from other groups getting lumped together. Such as straight white men getting lumped together. Just as an example.

My question was more in the tone of, “how does this help lil Susie down the street?” As opposed to well… anything else.

If people are unable to separate the vocal minority on Twitter with the majority of sane individuals, then they may have already been actually bigots all along. Hating an entire group of people because of a couple of morons isn’t reasonable.

Never said it was, just stating it is a situation that is occurring and at a more rapid pace than should be acceptable.

I don't agree with the extreme SJWs but the bigots are what cause some people to become SJWs. People get tired of being kicked around.
Most SJW’s are cushy middle class no life experience youngsters.

Probably not a single sjw in Compton

SJW’s are also bullies that figured out how to push people around online and sexual deviants that are drawn to the message of guilt free debauchery..

You'd have to be an incredibly shitty, and idiotic, person to try to bring criminal charges against someone who assaults your video game character. I'm surprised companies are even hiring this toxic woman who's a walking lawsuit waiting to happen.

Lol, "bigots". The SJWs are the biggest bigots in this big, bigoted world. You guys have seriously worn that insult down to having no meaning whatsoever. Sick of this trash infesting and infecting the gaming industry that I grew up with, though. We truly do need a purge - hopefully Elon's hostile takeover of Titter will help get that ball rolling though.

Elon elected to not govern via the board. Silent investor then, shame.

Nah these people like her are brats who are mad that they are not as important as they think they are. They get treated as such and can’t handle it.

Yes, I hate to be grouped into these witch hunt sects. I’m just a guy who dates guys with 0 in common with the Woke Twitter mobs. I do like that people that meet me know that I’m gay just so that they understand that non-woke gay people just live their lives like everyone else, respect everyone and don’t fall into the SJW stereotypes. It’s the only thing I can do to change that increasing perception.
