This is Brianna Wu, one of the women that's got sucked into this whole mess. I'm not going to get into a lot of debate here in this forum. I've already shown my thanks to GB for posting this. But, I do want to draw one thing to the attention of everyone posting here.
You are a bunch of men having a discussion about what you feel is a fair resolution for industry issues affecting industry women.
Some of your opinions are fine. Some are not. But I do want to remind you - there are not really women involved in the conversation here. And I'd like you to think about that.
I'd also like to tell the users of Giant Bomb, my first slate of rape and death threats came in January when I wrote a piece critiquing the absence of women voting for GOTY. I'd like you to think about that.
@bisonhero: Yeah, this really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has watched or played anything with the Alien name in it. It's par for the course at this point. I'd be much more scared if an Alien showed up suddenly within the first five minutes.
