How have we suddenly jumped from a position where pretty much everyone agreed that there was nothing wrong with Deroir's initial tweets?
The firing was rubbish, let's be clear about that, but Jessica Price did overreact to nothing. I've already written about how that is understandable given the context of sexist/misogynist/mansplaining tweets she must have received in the past, but her reaction to this particular tweet was wrong, and trying to reframe it as John Teasdale does is a load of rubbish. I note that he, like others defending her, doesn't point out that not once in her Reddit thread or subsequent tweets before the incident did she mention branching narratives. So how was Deroir supposed to magically guess that she had considered them, when she had gone into detail about the problems of player characters in MMORPGs and didn't talk about branching narratives once?
