Amazon publishes thinly veiled rape fantasy of #GamerGate target Zoe Quinn

Published

on

A thinly veiled, 11-page-long fantasy about raping game developer Zoe Quinn, titled Roughed Up By #GamerGape, has been made available for purchase as an Amazon Kindle download.

“Zada Quinby is a controversial video game designer who may have crossed the line,” the book’s description reads. “When her latest game offends the nation, five upset players decide to teach her a lesson. This gang of gamers decides to give Zada of piece of their mind, and much more!”

Its target audience consists of “[f]ans of group action who fantasize about being brutality taken by men who can’t understand the word ‘no,'” which is a scenario similar to many of the threats that Quinn herself received from members of the #GamerGate community.

As one reviewer of the book noted, “it’s all about selling rape fiction of game developers — ethical rape fiction, that is.”

Quinn herself noticed the book Friday morning and tweeted:

She also noted that:

An Amazon representative told Raw Story that the book — of whose existence she only just became aware — appears to violate Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing’s Content Guidelines, which indicate both that “[w]e don’t accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts” or other “offensive content,” which they define as, “[w]hat we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect.”

UPDATE: The title was removed by Amazon minutes after Raw Story spoke to an Amazon representative. GamerGate is, however, taking credit for having the title removed:

No communications staffers joined Trump on the outing, which the president announced Saturday on his Twitter account.

I am at Camp David working on many things, including Iran! We have a great Economy, Tariffs have been very helpful both with respect to the huge Dollars coming IN, & on helping to make good Trade Deals. The Dow heading to BEST June in 80 years! Stock Market BEST June in 50 years!

Kushner’s ‘immoral’ peace plan torn to shreds by Israeli security experts: ‘It could blow up the Middle East’

Published

on

Jared Kushner's Middle East peace proposal has been widely panned by international relations experts, and now three Israeli security experts have written a scathing editorial for Politico explaining how the plan could "blow up the Middle East."

The editorial -- which was co-written by Ami Ayalon, former director of the Israeli security agency Shin Bet; Gilead Sher, former chief of staff for Prime Minister Ehud Barak; and Israeli tech entrepreneur Orni Petruschka -- argues that Kushner's peace plan is "immoral" and stands a good chance of producing the opposite of its intended outcome.
