As many know the company Activision Blizzard is under a lawsuit for Sexual Assault/Harassment and hostile work environment.
As many might have guessed I played the popular game World Of Warcraft on my downtime. Yet after the events that took place, since 2013 apparently, I’ve come to the decision to stop playing and suspend my subscription.
I’m doing this in support for the women who endured the hell and in support of the employees that did a walkout in protest. My money will not support the company or continued harassment and sexual assault these women went through.
Many gamers are doing the same thing. In hopes that Blizzard will do better than what they have done. They’ve already done one thing right and that was firing Alex Afrasiabi. The main “man” who initiated the sexual harassment.
However, they fired him in 2020 years after his initial harassment and assault. The damage has been done, the fact that they waited this long for anything to be done, shows how corrupt they are.
Blizzard has also issued apologies, yet it’s too little to late. Apologies, terminations and possible compensation should have been done when the first complaints came in and not years after.
The fact that I have to even write a post such as this, makes me sick, and has literally destroyed my faith for humanity.
I want to understand why men feel like they have to objectify women why they feel that we as women don’t have rights, to be treated fairly, or have rights to speak up or criticize the wrong they have done.
Asmongold was a popular streamer for World Of Warcraft. He now plays a different game, yet his fan base, which he has no control of. Are heartless towards everyone who may speak out and express their views/opinions. That are different from his.
Asmon has been speaking out against blizzard and has on more than one occasion banned people from his streams that have attacked women.
She wasn’t being a terrible person, she was explaining what happens to women when they critique or share thoughts that are not on the same page as Asmon.
Bringing attention to bigots or men who disrespect women, is a real world problem and it needs to be solved.
She has a right to be scared of tweeting or speaking her mind on social media because of people like you, devaluing, her rights to speak out against sexism, against bigots and chauvinism.
She was not comparing Asmon to blizzard. She was pointing out his fan base being hostile towards women.
This isn’t the 1950’s, women are allowed to play video games and have jobs now. We are not your incubators, and we are certainly not your maids or live in chefs!!!
You have proven Laura’s point of how you think about and how you treat women.
As the title says Women are not objects. We are people and we deserve the same rights as everyone else. We deserve to be treated as people. We deserve compassion, empathy, we deserve equality and equity.
Just remember without women you would not even be alive today.
If you wouldn’t treat your mothers this way, then why treat other women this way.
I’m not a feminist yet I am “woke”. And this right here, the reality of this situation is an injustice towards women.
The only people that need to grow up are those who would objectify and devalue a woman’s worth.
