No idea if there's anything to it or if he's getting painted,

He would disappear with one or another, come back, then come back to me. The entire con. I did not get drunk with him again, and he was a gentleman-

-about my refusals, including the one where I was drunk off my ass, and when he escorted me to the subway station at 4:30am the morning I left to go home. That kind behavior is what not only kept me in denial about what was actually going on, but drove me to introduce him to-

-one of my best friends, who then endured over a year of heartache, gaslighting, and emotional abuse at his hands. It was much easier to see then, and ALL of us who knew what was going on told her to get out. Eventually, she did, but not before he raged out of a restaurant-

-drunk as fuck (as usual), leaving her behind, after which point she wandered the downtown streets of a major convention city late at night, ALONE, looking for him because she was worried he would get hurt due to how drunk he was. This was my breaking point

*sigh*

I know I'm always gonna be a minority in this, but I stopped reading as soon as I read she was blaming him for something after she got drunk....I mean, after "he got me blackout drunk"...so I guess he was shoving a bottle down her throat.

I am so tired of hearing these god damn stories where women are not supposed to be held accountable for what they do while drunk, yet men are. That's not EQUALITY if things aren't equal. Fuck off.

I’m confused.

What exactly is the problem here?
Resetera to the rescue

What a thot. How anyone can come to the defense of trash like her is disgusting. She actually said in Twitter that the ONLY reason she was able to turn him down was because she was on her period and then goes on to chastise the world for menstrual shaming. What a piece of work.

Why bother going to the authorities when you can just post accusations on twitter with no evidence.
This is the bit I never understand. If something like this happened, go to the authorities. If someone is a predator they need to be punished to the full extent of the law. We are way past the idea of police not taking accusations seriously.

This. so much.
If women want to get taken seriously, they should stop behaving like children and take responsibility for their own actions.

Isn't this cuck in an arranged marriage? Always see him leading the charge with whatever Resetera is screeching over at the moment. Just a tad hypocritical. I feel bad for that poor woman being forced to marry this clown. Imagine having to deal with a personality like that 24/7.

My opinion-

Cancel Culture is bad. BUT it doesn't mean we just accept shitty people in the things we want to support. I wouldn't want to financially support a lot of artists, whether they are 'canceled' or not (Tekashi 69, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen, for various different reasons)

But three things-

1. Not supporting games which are made by hundreds of people over ONE person is stupid (same could be said about movies but arguably if the person is a director or lead actor a lot more of 'them' is in it, games are inherently more collaborative in this sense)

2. This guy has not been accused of rape, or assault. Maybe of being a bit of a douchebag? Like a shitty boyfriend or date? Maybe needs to not drink so much? but did her hit her? the girl he ABANDONDED IN A CITY could've just called a fucking cab to get home.

3. It's one person. If he had a laundry list of people accusing him it's different (still... not like what he did was illegal or even 'wrong' morally or ethically... just a bit of a dick from the sounds of it. IF it is true)



This sounds like Azis Ansari all over again.
