So the game studio Blizzard, and most specifically the branch responsible for World of Warcraft is under a huge lawsuit, two years of investigation, about sexual harassment, the suicide of a female employee in a business trip where the coworker who was traveling with her bought a butt plug and lube, inequal pay and inequal opportunities. Pretty grim stuff. You can read about the lawsuit here : https://aboutblaw.com/YJw Page 11 and so on.
Responding to this post on reddit is someone saying "As a woman wanting to make videogames stuff like this is terrifying. I didn't go through University for computer science to get sexually harassed non-stop."
I had a hunch so I looked up the profile and sure enough that's a dude. Been on hormones 6 months. Want advice about how to be safe at night when taking walks, worded in a way you know he just wants to experience some of that sweet sweet validating womanly oppression.
I'm so fucking tired of this. You are not going to be sexually harassed. Nobody is going to do anything like you read in the lawsuit. The most that might happen is that you get called homophobic slurs because you're a dude in a dress. You are not going to lose opportunities, because companies are way more scared of being painted as transphobes than as mysogynists. You are entirely safe and pretending otherwise is such fucking fetishism it's not even funny. I see this so much, everything bad happening to a woman seems to have a TIM somewhere being like "tee hee I sure hope it doesn't happen to me hihi"
I'm so done
