Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

These are Zak and Pundit as I knew them when the news broke. It’s the image most were already familiar with: angry nerdboys who spent all their time trying to gatekeep the hobby. To me that was reason enough that they should never work in a game as influential as Dungeons and Dragons. But as the picture of their names in the credits spread, more information spilled out. Seeing their names there in black and white was just too much, and people began to speak out. Most did so in private, others posted publicly but without naming names. This, I became aware, was because anyone who criticised the pair found themselves subjected to harassment, abuse and real world stalking.
Both have much the same MO. They publically attack someone for criticising them, speaking out about sexism and bigotry, or just liking the wrong game. That person then finds themselves under a sustained campaign of harassment from Zak and Pundit’s fans. They pair would then feign innocence despite knowing full well what would happen and doing nothing to discourage it. Even after the initial attacks die down things are not over, they will routinely return to attack targets that angered them years ago. Cross them once, and you are marked for life.
This is where Zak excels. He has in the past posted lists of people who he feels have displeased him in some way, complete with their real names. Those people then lists find themselves subjected to sustained campaigns of harassment. Not mere internet name calling, but phone calls to people’s houses in the middle of the night that say “This is where your children go to school.” To be clear, I am not accusing Zak or Pundit of making these calls, there is no evidence for that. What they do is point out targets and refuse to admonish their fans when they step over the line.

While this behaviour is alarming, it the choice of victim that is the most telling. These attacks nearly always target women and LGTBQ individuals, mostly freelancers and independent designers. Zak and Pundit have taken pains to defend themselves against accusations of transphobia, but I know several transpeople who their fans have attacked and harassed. Zak described one of them as ‘mentally ill’, both he and Pundit told others they would be better off committing suicide. Recently, in a post defending Zak and accusing his detractors of misogyny, his girlfriend attempted to out a trans designer.

    WHY YOU WANT BLOOM FOR DARK SOULS? IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH AS PROCURED FROM NAMCO BANDAI? YOU THINK NEEDS IMPROVEMENT? THEN MAYBE YOU FIND JOB WITH FROM SOFTWARE! YOU HAVE DRINKS WITH HIDETAKA MIYAZAKI, TRADE STORY OF MANY DARK FANTASY GAMES DESIGNED AND DETAILS OF AESTHETIC FOR GRIM MEDIEVAL KINGDOM! OR MAYBE YOU NOT DO THIS. PROBABLY IS BECAUSE YOU NEVER DESIGN GAME IN WHOLE LIFE. YOU LOOK AT FINE JAPANESE ARPG, THINK IT NEED CRAZY SHIT STICK ALL OVER SCREEN. YOU HAVE DISEASE OF AMERICAN BROGAMER, CHANGE THING THAT IS FINE FOR NO REASON EXCEPT TO CONVINCE YOURSELF PLAYING ON PC MAKES YOU BETTER THAN COMRADE. YOU PUT CHEAP BLOOM ENGINE OF NEXUS MODS ON ONE SIDE, YOU PUT DEPTH OF FIELD OF GARBAGE AAA SHOOTER ON OTHER SIDE, YOU PUT COLOR OVERSATURATION ON TOP SO YOU ARE LIKE AMERICAN SHOOTING GAME CALL OF DUTY. MAYBE YOU PUT SEX DILDO ON TOP TO FUCK YOURSELF IN ASSHOLE FOR MAKING SHAMEFUL TRAVESTY OF GAME OF HIDETAKA MIYAZAKI, NO? GAME IS FINE. YOU FUCK IT, IT ONLY GET UGLY AND YOU STILL NOT BRING BACK FAKE BULLSHOT LIGHTNING ENGINE FROM TRAILER. GO TO IRON KEEP BRIDGE, PRACTICE PVP WITH MANY CHEATER AND HONEST PLAYER ALIKE. THEN YOU NOT NEED DUMB SHIT PUT ON TOP OF GAME.

    1. Europeans: I drove forty minutes to the Netherlands for some groceries and then I popped into Germany to see some of my relatives before driving back home.
    2. Americans: I was in Florida, I drove for nine hours, now I'm still in Florida.
