Video Games are having a moment. The toxicity from fans has been well documented for years but the toxic, abusive, predatory behavior between developers has mostly been spoken in whispers between trusted friends. I'm in awe of the bravery of those who have spoken up today.

Their bravery is going to give courage to other women and non-binary folks to speak up and you can rest assured that this is a massive problem affecting and caused by the developers who make the games you love. So let me remind you: Believe women

This is a time when all the men who claim to be allies get to show their real values. If you work with or are in communities with predatory men speak up, speak to management, voice your concerns, demand consequences for predatory behavior.

Reading through all the messages we've gotten has been utterly devastating. There is so much pain and long term suffering at the hands of abusive and manipulative men. To all the survivors out there, whether it's physical or emotional abuse, I see you, I hear you, I believe you.

(This goes for all marginalized folks but I've mostly been talking to trans and cis women the past two days and) y'all... women have been through so damn much in this industry and this misogynist world. I am blown away by how courageous and resilient and supportive you all are.

From the women who are sharing their stories both publicly and privately to the people who are rallying to support. I'm just over here crying through my utter exhaustion and taking a minute of gratitude to recognize the sheer collective and individual strength of us.

It feels an awful lot like all the power structures are working against us at every moment but the incredible rapid response of this community is just, y'all, it's beautiful. (okay that's the most sappy shit you're gonna get from me byyyyeeee)

I don't always agree with your points but I do have a question, as I value your opinion. As a man raising a daughter; How do we define the line between belief and guilty? How much is it on the victim to get a rape kit and have her evidence before we publicly bury someone?

I actually feel sorry for your daughter of that's the sort of question you're having to ask.

It might sound cruel but all he is asking for is answere for the "what if" case. Your reaction seems way more narrow-minded than his question to try and cover up all possibilities

1. Additionally, it might take the victim years to come forward after what would undoubtedly be a traumatic experience.

This. I was sexually harassed & assaulted at work. It took over 5 years for me to admit To Myself that that was what had happened. I still can't come forward at work cos my response at the time (slapped them eventually) would also be gross misconduct & I could lose my job for it

You should encourage Batman to come forward with his side of the story
