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:

In a startling moment of tone-deaf responses, the Washington Redskins took part in the #BlackOutTuesday posts, where many showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protesters marching to stop police brutality of people of color. Given the racist history of Redskins owner Dan Snyder and the protests over the team's name, some are calling it another example of failed PR stunts.

"Teams with racial slurs for names should really sit out racism protests," explained user Dennis Perkins.

‘Egregious violation of his oath’: Former inspector general calls on Congress to impeach Bill Barr for attacking peaceful protesters

Published

on

On Tuesday, former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich urged the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings into Attorney General William Barr, accusing him of an "egregious violation of his oath."

Bromwich's remark came in response to reports that Barr personally ordered authorities to forcibly clear peaceful protesters out of the area around the White House, using gas and rubber bullets, before President Donald Trump walked to the nearby church.

The House should immediately initiate proceedings in re The Impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. This is simply the most recent egregious violation of his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. https://t.co/cwsgoupSLp

‘The worst is yet to come’: Leading conservative issues blistering argument for defeating Trump and his GOP enablers

Published

on

George F. Will, who turned 79 on May 4, is among the most prominent conservative journalists in the United States — although he has been a vehement critic of Donald Trump’s presidency and even left the Republican Party because of it. And Will’s most recent Washington Post column is especially scathing: the Never Trumper stresses that voting the “crybaby in chief” out of office in November is crucial in order to reverse the country’s “downward spiral.”
