Has Kickstarter decided to rescind it’s no charity policy? It may have, as the #feministdeck Kickstarter has been successfully funded. This comes as no surprise to many #Gamergate supporters, knowing that feminism in this case radical feminism is trying to take over gaming. Now, what makes this particular kickstarter so clouded and terrible? The author is paying the models 85% of the money raised. That’s a charitable donation that’s untaxed, and unethical in many forms. To her credit she does claim that #Gamergate is them reason many of these “models,” can’t make money in their fields of work.
I can tell you without delay that Zoé Quinn, Randi Harper, Brianna Wu, and Anita Sarkeesian aren’t hurting for money. At all. The simple fact that this Kickstarter is paying several figures who have supported harassment, and even doxxing is ridiculous. Even worse, according to the author these models plan go split over $10,000 each.
Although she claims that many of the models declined payment, the question remains which ones didn’t and why. Likeness rights are one thing, but will these feminists truly sign their rights off for this artist? Probably not. Most of the models for this project are busy trying to get tax exempt status in the US, or Gamergate can’t keep being the scapegoat for greed greediness thus industry.
We’ve seen and heard that song played live too many times. Even Randi Harper is claiming Gamergate makes life unbearable to the point she had to move to Portland Or. Sorry Mundane Matt. If this were true she wouldn’t be making money on convention floors consulting and showing off updates to her #GGautoblocker. Thus which Twitters safety endorses because she’s friends with their IT team.
However with a new CEO taking over, how long will their reign last? Only time will tell. For now we can see how corrupt money makes organizations designed to help people when the wrong ones are in charge. If you believe in change and creating new growth sign the petition and boycott their products, and speaking of “models“, “modeling” and “game design“.
