    I just can’t believe how bad some workplaces are. A female friend of mine once told me that her boss said to her, in a meeting with others present: “I should throw you down on this table and rape you for suggesting that.”

    I don’t care what was said. I don’t care how good that boss’ sense of humor is. I don’t care what kind of hilarity goes on in that office environment. Those words should never be spoken aloud in the workplace (or anywhere).

    And as someone who works at a real, adult workplace where such things are not tolerated, I’m just floored to hear these stories. I once told a female coworker that she’d been harsh in a meeting and she fired back that I was being sexist, basically telling her to “smile more.” I shut my mouth and kept my head down for fear of being fired if she reported me.

    And other people are threatening rape, calling people n-words, and all this bullshit - and getting away with it? I am just stunned.

    “The number of daily items the Social media role at the time was expected to fill was incredibly high. I was expected to post 3 tweets, 2 Instagram posts, and 2 TikToks minimum per day. I was also expected to plan, film, edit, and post 2 Floatplane exclusives per week”

    I think saying “incredibly high” is an exaggeration

      Apprently they have a whole team doing that same output now, so no, it is not exaggerated.

      Planning, filming and editing two professional grade videos plus interacting with a community of 15 million people doesn’t seem high to you ?

    “They’re super-terrible to work for and I’ve just coincidentally chose this period of the company’s social implosion to quit and speak up. This is definitely not a bandwagon move. #metooLMG”

      In a shocking plot twist, Gamers have no sympathy for an abused and/or manipulated woman.

      So you don’t have anything to say about the content of her statement, you’re just offended by her offering it when it’s relevant?

        Not offended at all. This behavior is completely expected. Don’t share your terrible experience until someone else is talking about how your post-employer misled their viewers, then pile on when it will get clicks.

          Do you realize that this is simply how human interaction works? Of fucking course she felt safer telling her story when other people were already telling theirs.

          I don’t know anything about any of these people one way or the other, but if you believe her account and just think the timing is opportunistic, then do you not also believe the part of her account that’s in, you know, the bigger more noticeable font at the top that says, “To stop the speculation and DMs I’m receiving…”.

          As in, “I quit two years ago and didn’t say anything about it, but now this is all over the news and a million people keep asking and/or assuming things, so I guess I should address it”.

      I absolutely do not wonder where you would have stood during gamergate - with the worst people fathomable.

        I probably wouldn’t have been standing at all, seeing as how I have no clue what “gamergate” is.
