Another interview tonight on Niche Gamer, and some more money quotes. This time, the developer that goes by the name “Xbro” for anonymity purposes, unloaded on IGDA Seattle treasurer and SJW fear monger Sela Davis. Her Facebook post today took several shots at Xbro, and was just a mess in general. Here’s a post from her statement, so you you will be familiar with it before we get to Xbro:

“I am hesitant to say anything under my real name in fear of earning the ire of this group “Xbro” so proudly claims most of my coworkers support, a group in every way synonymous with gendered harassment in our industry. While “Xbro” may claim to oppose harassment, he and other passive supporters of this movement benefit from the actions of this “vocal minority” [6] who engages in such behavior. It is this “minority’s” terrorizing of marginalized and dissenting voices that allows people like him to say such things unchallenged, for fear that those like me – who want so badly to speak up – will end up in the crosshairs. Yet here I am – because I will no longer allow myself the indignity of this association. It is easy to dismiss GamerGate’s horrific track record when you do not live in fear of being their next target, or when the true cost of this campaign remains invisible to you. This fear is something I do not wish on him or anyone else.”

Here’s the rest of her garbage, in case you want to read it. She’s so hysterical, that it makes her hard to take seriously. OMG, you might work with people who disagree with you about GamerGate! Apparently, that’s the end of the world. You’re also worried about being targeted, but no one knew who the fuck you were before your ludicrous statement. If I were more cynical, I’d say you’re just trying to set yourself up like one of the Literally Who’s, so you head out on the SJW speaking circuit later on. But nah, surely you wouldn’t do that…

Regardless of her intentions, Xbro responded to this bullshit moments ago:

“Miss Davis, I believe it’s time to act professionally and stop this pathetic fear mongering propaganda that, all of a sudden, women have become big targets. Welcome to the internet, *everyone* is a target when you have an opinion. And in 99.98% of the cases, that means trolls will say mean things about you, or curse at you, or make you feel bad. This has been going on for over a decade now, and it’s not going to change soon.

If people want to turn internet victimhood into a profitable circus show and career, so be it, but I will not let them attack the people which I go to work in the morning for. And by my side stand my friends, family and colleagues, and I will not be afraid to be their voice.”

The whole interview is pretty great, but that was my favorite section. It just totally obliterates Ms. Davis’ propaganda-like Facebook post, one that seemed to have almost no grounding in reality. Xbro has been solid throughout GamerGate, even if some have tried to dismiss his testimonies because of his anonymity. If he was a special SJW snowflake demanding anon, he would be “brave.” But that’s another story altogether lol. For tonight, I just want to thank Xbro for speaking out once again, and I encourage others like him to do the same.

  1. Xbro is my hero. I hope after those who have declared us dead are themselves nothing more than memories that we look back on, that Xbro will reveal him or herself and we can give a proper thank you for all he/she has done for gaming and the future of it and its players.

  2. I like how her entire facebook comment completely invalidates itself. Pure bullshit gold. Also, “those people over there are harassing people (prove it please), and even if they’re not connected to you, you’re benefitting from them, so you’re just as guilty!”.

    Guilt by Association Fallacy you ignorant bitch. And probably a few others. Gendered harassment she says? Hmm… yeah, because anyone gives a shit what someone’s gender is on the internet (unless you divulge it… and even then, it’s the internet, why are you getting riled up by what unsupervised 12 year olds are saying exactly?).

    So far 3 people, all professional victims were “targeted by harassment”, harassment that they likely fabricated themselves or earned by slinging mud at anonymous trolls at the internet. All 3 of them have made money off this widely publicized harassment, much of which was done during major newsbreaks proving corruption in the games press AND connecting links between these publications, devs and pr people.

    Never mind all the INTENSE harassment people who support GamerGate have suffered. Never mind the further marginalization of minorities and women who support the movement as being decried “sock puppets” and enduring the continued racist and sexist idiocy of the anti-GG fascists.

      1. These people don’t grasp how fucked they’re going to be when this is all over. It’s going to be delicious.

    1. “those people over there are harassing people (prove it please), and even if they’re not connected to you, you’re benefitting from them, so you’re just as guilty!”

      Rather than Guilt by Association, that could be better described as Model C Kafkatrapping, which, along with Model A Kafkatrapping, seems to be the only argumentative tactic that fringe gender feminists use.

  3. I am totally surprised that a member of IGDA is spinning the same tired “OMG GamerGate is out to get me! They’re hiding in my backyard and my attic! HELP!”

    Notice how long GG has been up and running, and notice how she still has her job position and has yet to be assaulted of harassed? All the BS talk of us trying to get rid of women from gaming, and I’ve yet to hear of a single one leaving the business because of us. (And you know it hasn’t happened yet, because there would be dozens of articles about it all over Kotaku, RPS, etc within seconds)

  4. She just sounds retarded. Good job Ms. Davis, for proving, once again, that third wave feminists are mostly nut jobs.

  5. Something that always bothers me with people like this Davis and others of her kind is the use of nebulous words. She keeps talking about her friends.

    Her friends are harassed. Her friends are questioning her about Xbox’s stance. It’s always some unclear term like that. I assume they mean their Facebook “friends” since people like these are unlikely to have actual friends, merely partners in crime or, more likely, roommates in the same wing of the insane asylum.

    Xbro destroyed the rest of her pathetic attempt at furthering the agenda of her…friends.

    1. They do it because appealing to the personal like that is difficult to disprove and doing so amplifies the fact that the questioner is a heartless bastard, further engendering the ‘victims’ cause to the audience. It’s no better that the stuff people do/did on Jerry Springer.

    1. and the Captain Planet theme immediately came to mind

      ♫Captain Xbro, he’s our hero
      ♫Gonna take corruption down to zero
      ♫He’s our powers, magnified
      and he’s fighting on consumers’ side♫

  6. What a shock when I discovered after going to her actual FB page that she has it set to where only approved friends can comment. They really do love their echo chambers as I guess it makes them feel safe and insulated from the world outside their doors.
