Perhaps by now some of you have heard about how Brianna Wu and Brad Wardell had a truce when they met up for a “pleasant” cup of coffee to discuss business. Brianna Wu had expressed interest in Brad Wardell’s thoughts on employee retention.
What happened next is exactly what you would expect from SJWs. Jenn of Hardwire complied some of the SJW rants on the topic calling Wu privileged with accusations of transphobia to ableism.
One of the detractors is Kathryn Long, an ugly feminist and tech artist who works for Bioware Austin. She made a series of tweets calling Wu’s success the result of white privilege. Long seems to be obsessed with using the words capitalism and privilege like they are four letter words.
Another detractor is Athena Hollow, an alt-porn star took who issue with Brianna Wu calling Brad Wardell an “ally”. Hollow seems to think that Wardell is some kind of plight on the gaming industry. While nothing is specific on why she thinks that way, you can probably bet that it has to do with Wardell’s stance on gamergate.
Then there is Jay “a_man_in_black” Allen, Boingboing contributor, red pill denier and just an overall unpleasant person. Jay Allen has dismissed red pill philosophy as nothing more than conspiracy theories and has criticized this site’s founder Roosh and contributor Matt Forney. So when Brianna Wu decides to meet up with someone like Brad Wardell who has experienced harassment from SJWs, Jay Allen would of course lose his mind. Jay had dismissed the meeting as a publicity stunt on Brad Wardell’s behalf.
Then we have Katherine Cross, a disciple of Anita Sarkeesian and an academic. Cross is a researcher who specializes in online harassment, so when one of her prime examples goes against her narrative, it comes as no surprise that Cross would express disappointment.
Lastly there is the SJW troll. These are the kind of people who have no impressive credentials. Joe Matar, whoever he is, seems to have come to the same conclusion many gamers have that Revolution 60 looks bad. Hey but now that the SJWs have turned on Brianna Wu at least he doesn’t have to hide it anymore.
We could go on with examples of SJWs turning on Brianna Wu. Hell, we haven’t even gotten to Gamer Ghazi yet where Brianna Wu tried to clarify the events that transpired. Here’s an excerpt of what Brianna Wu had to say:
If we were to talk honestly guys, I am battle weary. And to be honest, something I’m trying to do is to get more Gamergaters to see me as a human so they’ll stop attacking me.
This is survival. You have no idea how frazzled I am or how close I am to quitting.
I sorry if This hurt the cause. I’m sorry if I messaged this badly. I’m actually hiding out in the back Of the IMGA awards trying to type all this on an iPhone, because I respect you. I am doing my best to make changes here, albeit imperfectly.
I’ve taken as much fire for this cause as is humanly possible.
I’m sorry if I hurt you, but if were speaking honestly, you guys are hurting me too. If I stay here, expect me to do more diplomacy. If I keep doing this, reaching out and changing minds where I can. This is who I am as a person, and it’s not going to change.
I will try to do better on messaging.
Despite all of this, Brianna Wu is still getting shit on by Ghazi. The comments are filled with with deleted posts and what not. If there is a takeaway it’s that Briana Wu is ready to have rationale discussion with #Gamergate but SJWs aren’t going to have any of it.
This whole incident is an exercise in how those aligned with SJWs don’t want to find common ground with their detractors. This incident has been an example of how even mentioning rationale discussion goes against their narrative. The problem with SJWs is that they have blurred the line between the political and personal. So if Brianna Wu wants to talk so be it, I’m sure there many individuals within Gamergate that would be happy to talk. Whether anyone else on the other side is willing to talk is unknown at this time, but based on the responses from ghazi that seems highly unlikely.
