I don't think its a reference at all, the -gate suffix is basically applied to any scandal. It only happens to be there are 5 characters in the scene and an incredibly common -gate reference. But lets get real, she knows that.

Its because the dumb cunt hasn't had any attention paid to her lately and those patreon bux are slipping. Also lol at 'suffering'. Yeah, earning money for creating nothing, having the entire press slobber all over you like you were a holy martyr, becoming famous when you were a nobody and instantly becoming more influential and powerful in gaming, surpassing actual women who work in the business, who run studios and shipped dozens, if not hundreds of games. While you make one incredibly shitty, free twine game and just keep calling yourself a 'developer' when you haven't made a single commercial release, indie or otherwise. And you are basically immune to criticism for any/all of this because of your 'suffering'. Alright then sir, you really 'suffered'.

Given the choice: Pathetic harassment from internet trolls which will involve autists calling your house and cell phone for maybe a couple of months, trying not to have their voice shake or crack while they make bad jokes. Maybe a risk of a swatting. However, this will launch you to fame, free money, influence and immunity to any criticism.

The alternative is being a nobody schlub that is basically on the fringe of the fringe in which you'll probably never get anywhere otherwise since you have no interest or talent to learn how to make good games.

Truly, a difficult decision  :adam:

No, she's trying to get out ahead in oppression because Mighty No. 9 is a piece of shit and I expect 20 articles tomorrow morning about how sexist gamers harrased that one chick from the Mighty No. 9 team so badly that it affected the whole team.

Search Engine Victim Optimization has a nice ring to it. Have a bunch of copy-paste replies. Hire a team of bloggers, copywriters and shitposters to boost results via XOJ articles, YouTube video replies and Reddit downvotes.

I'm picturing a Wolf of Wall Street style call center where victimhood reps field death/rape threats all day and post the conversations online.

5:01 rolls around, an alarm sounds and the whole place goes from...
