Vivian James is the fictional dairywoman of gaming, She wears a striped
hoodie and drinks Mountain Dew Throwback. Her name is a play on "didya
games." She' s a regular person who wears jeans and spends too much
time on the internet. And she was created out of spite by the historically
anticommunist garners of stoned
Here' s some background: Gamers on ychan are pouring time and energy
into basking a project that sponsors tildes games. Did they
have a crisis of conscience? Not exactly. Their charitable efforts are part of
a plan to spite Zoe Quinn, creator of the game Depression Guest. A portion
of the users on we / s times games forum (a place historically
unfriendly to women and especially to feminists), have long disliked Quinn,
a feminist, for reasons that aren' t especially thear but feel
suspiciously like good misogyny.
In February Eu! 3, Quinn' s Depression Quest debuted on Greenlight, the open
submissions system of gaming network Valve. Almost instantly, Quinn
became the target of a nightmarish amount of harassment, ranging from
to rape threats. one counterintuitive accusation they' hurled
at Quinn is that she' s a "fake feminist." Since gaming culture on the whole
is notoriously anticommunist, I' m not clear on why these gamers would be
angry at someone who they felt was "taking" feminisation am i sure how

"For reasons that aren't exactly clear"

10/10 masterwork research right there

First I thought this person just didn't do their research, but was financially obliged to write the article. But with the author looking like this, I am inclined to think this is full-on delusional.

Article in a nutshell:

4CHAN HAS A CUTE NEW MASCOT!!!

Clicked on her profile page to see what other BS articles she might have written about and found this little gem..
User avatar #37 to #36 - strifethethird (08/29/2014) [-]
NO ONE CONTACT HER!
she left those there so people would harass her and she could get feminists on her side and make her "famous" like every other crazy woman out there.

"have long disliked Quinn, a self-proclaimed feminist, for reasons that aren't especially clear but feel suspiciously like good old-fashioned misogyny.

NO.

The reason they are doing this is because Quinn and her followers actively sabotaged the project. They're supporting it because even though they don't like feminists and they really don't like Quinn.

Someone who identifies as a feminist here.
I don't see the problem, and this is not a problem with in the grounds of equal rights
In fact I think calling /v/ anti feminist is ridiculous, they're not against any ones rights as far as I know.

Also can some one explain to me the problem with this character, I thought there wasa huge uproar for creating a relatable female protagonist? (Who the **** plays a game to relate to it anyway? isn't it basically fantasy?)
User avatar #40 to #35 - deathchain ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
There is no problem with Vivian. It's Tumblr (and ONLY Tumblr) that thinks there's a problem, because she was designed by their mortal enemy 4chan.

And being able to relate to a character makes the game more enjoyable because you understand what the character is going through and you care about what happens to them. The games are fantasy, but a well-written one will be grounded in reality.

the biggest problem i have with the bitch is that she's 						*******					 up the gaming industry. how? triple a's were 						*******					 up a lot before and game journalism sites should never be taken seriusly by someone with a brain , but if her shenangans (						*******					 journalists, twitter scandals , sjw/feminist bs ) are allowed to continue it will continue with a lot more braindead bitches like her. 						****					 like depression quest and gone home will be in the spotlight wrongly , game companies will figure this is what gamers want right now and there goes any hopes for decent games. 						****					 like this keeps happening... we can't do much but we can atleast try to make our voices heard

User avatar #101 - bakinboy ONLINE (08/29/2014) [-]
the reasons are pretty clear. her game was garbage and she ****** gaming journalists in exchange for publicity on her game.

you do not comprehend the amount of rage exiting my posterior at this current moment
#134 - theracistpanda (08/29/2014) [+] (2 replies)
Western feminism is pretty much 'fake' because their whole agenda is basically 'We're all born equal, but I'm more equal than you are'. So yes, she is a fake feminist.
Feminism only works in places where women are actually being oppressed. You were born as a white female in the United States? Well **** , you got it better than most of the world!
And they have the audacity to say their oppression is on par with others in the world, and claim their delusions are the result of real mental illnesses.

I don't even really give a **** about Zoe Quinn. I haven't seen any evidence that she actually slept with gaming journalists for positive reviews, and apparently there isn't even a review that fits that theory, so I can't say anything about it. What I CAN say is that you should be able to talk about it on online forums without being silenced, and to criticize the game without being called a misogynist.

**** this **** , man.

Its because they started getting more concerned with making money, and those sort of high risk on site videos are expensive to make (especially for the insurance). Cheaper to make SJW text wall ********* all text, no actual research required, and it has an automatic audience
