Search Engine Terms

I was looking over my search engine terms and these stood out.

“anime hair that goes up then down” – I assume that search found this, but if it didn’t, here you go.

“anime with a crazy main character” – What it actually found was probably the same set of posts, but since I mentioned Ryoma Nagare maybe that’s okay.

“zoe quinn dark enlightenment” – I didn’t know what “Dark Enlightenment” was and I kind of wish I still didn’t. I still don’t know why anyone was searching for that phrase, though; neither Zoe Quinn nor ‘gamergate’ is suggested to be connected to ‘Dark Enlightenment’ on any page that my search found, not even the ones that seemed prone to conspiracy theories.

Internet misogynists target Zoe Quinn

Zoe Quinn, the creator of the educational interactive fiction Depression Quest, has been targeted by the same anti-feminist nuts who keep giving gamers a bad name, predictably led by her ex-boyfriend.

She’s getting all kinds of harassment, even though as far as I can tell, the “worst” thing that she’s actually being accused of is sleeping with someone who is a reviewer but never actually reviewed her game.

Seriously, this kind of crap has to stop. If these kinds of people aren’t intentionally trying to drive every woman out of the game industry, they’re certainly not trying very hard to avoid looking like that’s their goal.
