(EPIC) Media #Fail: Microsoft afraid sexist banhammer would eliminate business
On the heels of women developers from 343 studios declaring that sexist comments would incur the wrath of the forerunners (Halo joke) in the form of a lifetime ban from Xbox’s online gameplay service, Microsoft has released a statement declaring that it won’t actually ban people for being douchekazoos.
FREE SPEECH seems to be the white dude battle cry in the comments. I leave you with a quote by Kate Kane:
If you are a straight, white, able-bodied, cisgender man, you possess immense privilege. There’s nothing wrong with being straight or white or able-bodied or cisgender or a man, and the vast majority of the world will happily affirm you in your identity as all of these things. But there is something wrong with feeling entitled to your privilege, as if you deserve special treatment because you are any or all of these identities. And when someone who is not straight or not white or not able-bodied or not cisgender or not a man complains about the inequality in society, you are a jerk if you claim that that person complaining about inequality is the one perpetuating it.
And, some trolling from the comments…
