What the hell Amir0x?!!

A former moderator on one of the internet’s most prominent gaming forums, NeoGAF, has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.

Thirty-two-year-old Christopher John Goldberg, who went by the name “Amir0x” on social media, was a male feminist who often took to Twitter to express his hatred at “sexists” and Trump supporters, in vocal support of the Women’s March. He was active during the GamerGate debacle that took the gaming world by storm in 2014, taking the side of feminists.

The Tobyhanna, Penn. man was charged this Wednesday with 64 counts of child porn possession and one count of criminally using a computer to download the illicit materials. Goldberg told police that he believed the pictures were not illegal if they didn’t depict sexual acts, but the police didn’t buy his excuse and issued the charges against him.

According to the Pocono Record, Goldberg told investigators that he “has many fetishes” and downloaded different types of porn, including that of nude children. The man did not contest the allegations, and told police that the materials were an outlet for his urges.

Investigators from Monroe County DA’s office conducting a hunt for pedophiles online discovered a suspect computer possessing child porn, and traced those activities back to Goldberg’s home. Investigators state that he downloaded images of prepubescent girls with their privates exposed.

On June 28, Detective Brian Webbe, who leads the task force, executed a search warrant at Goldberg’s residence and found a download folder on one of his cellphones containing one child porn video and 53 images.

A laptop recovered by investigators revealed software used to download the illegal content, and multiple files indicative of child porn.

The video depicts a girl between the ages of 12 and 14 wearing only a skirt and dancing suggestively for the camera, whereas the 53 pictures are of nude children between the ages of 4 and 12.


What the actual fuck..... Not the kind of news I wanted to stumble on today.

This will be locked since we apparently can't discuss it.

Edit-. I'm surprised this many people didn't know. It's been a few days since it broke and the mods haven't allowed discussion of it.

They've allowed discussion of it in other threads and even responded to it.

I actually saw this randomly when I was googling what the disgraced film blogger Devin Faraci was up to.

Interesting that Faraci was also very outwardly pro women, and part of gamergate. I think people who feel the need to show to the world they are allies, and think women are equal, are frequently doing it to ward of their inner ugliness. Faraci was sexually assaulting and harassing women.
