Jessica Price Reveals Pathetic Lives of "Industry Pros"

(1/12) > >>

RPGPundit:
Jessica Price decides to reveal a whole bunch of dirty laundry from her time working for Paizo on the Pathfinder RPG.  In so doing, she reveals the misery of what being a supposed "industry pro" is really all about.

NOTE (Retraction): I mistakenly assumed Jessica Price was talking about Jeff Grubb (she referred only to a "jeff" in her Twitter tirade), when in fact it appears she was attacking current Paizo President Jeff Alvarez. My apologies to Mr. Grubb.

GeekyBugle:
Theosophy permeated the early feminist movement. So if Price is against Theosophy isn't she also against feminism?

So I read through her essay or me too thing or whatever it's called.

Now it's often said that if you meet assholes all the time maybe you're the asshole. I've always disagreed with this because sometimes people are genuinely surrounded by assholes at work. So I'm going to give this woman half of a benfit of the doubt. My logic behind this is this

There are so many absolute bastards in the costal areas and other SJW hives. I can believe that sexual harassment goes on, I can believe that the male feminists in power use their influence to bully and suppress people. They're all arseholes there. But what SJWs don't have the self awareness to realize is that so often, because everyone is an arsehole. They believe everyone everywhere is an arsehole so they can be an arsehole too because "that's just how people are.". They are incapable of realizing that not only does shit roll down hill. But you can't just push it further down. Because sometimes shit rolls up a hill too and you get covered in it after you thought you were safe.

Like a lot of these Me too or whatever this is sort of things, It's very self centered to make this woman look like a saint surrounded by Sodom. As I said, I can believe a lot of the things mentioned in the whatever it's called. Maybe exaggerated or taken out of context. But I've worked in offices before on creative projects. This sort of thing happens. Offices of creatives often become like High School. With all the bullshit that entails.

But like a lot of SJWs, this woman wants us to forget that she most likely participated in many of the things she has deemed as problematic. She won't tell us herself of course but past behavior is a great predictor for present and future behavior. And these wokeies always think real life is just like Twitter. We've seen her behavior in public. So we know how she can be. She's probably worse in private.

She's also trying to get us to not realize that this entire piece isn't done to actually advance any meaningful change at Paizo but just raise her star and get attention.

TLDR: She's probably lying. She's absolutely a bitch, but so is the industry.

In my experience, the louder the "male feminist", the more likely that they'll harass/abuse a woman. Most use it as a smokescreen for shitty behavior.
