Ugh, I saw a little about this earlier today, but the full story is worse than I imagined. It’s vile how people reacted to the community manager announcement. I don’t care if there is any truth to their accusations: there is no reason in the world to treat a human being this way.
Treat them what way? It’s not like she’s gotten rape or death threats or anything. They’ve just been concerned about how her personal agendas are going to affect work on what is essentially the new Mega Man. A few of them have gotten a bit riled up and asked for refunds unless she’s removed from the team, which I say is a bit harsh.
But considering that her position, community manager, is essentially to tell the developers and Inafune what the community thinks? I don’t blame some fans for being skeptical and concerned.
Why, you ask? From her twitter, they managed to find that she supports Anita Sarkeesian (in particular, that she was supporting her last video, which was full of BS that I have personally torn a hole into) as well as radical feminist notions such as the idea that pronouns should be abolished from speech because they’re “sexist”.
She’s also an artist, and occasionally gives input to the artists on the game. She’s apparently been shown on the Kickstarter to request that the main character be female. That’s been essentially her only concern. Now, on the other hand, she also suggested the Call (the substitute for Roll in the game) should be a playable character. That’s something I totally agree with. Equality is important, and there should be more influential female game characters out there.
However, they’ve also found tweets where she admits that she’s not a Mega Man fan at all. That’s the biggest offender to me. I feel like someone who is going to be conveying information between the fans and the developer should at least be familiar with the MM series overall.
Combine all of that? And I don’t blame them for being concerned. Imagine if you had someone like Anita Sarkeesian able to decide what fan opinions should go to the developer and what shouldn’t. There’d be some bias there. And there’d also be a chance that she’d push her own agenda using her position to make things happen.
On top of everything else? She also locked her twitter and claimed it was a knee-jerk reaction to all of the posts about her, when she was really going through and deleting all of the tweets that people were concerned about. That’s a bit shady and sounds very much like something Anita Sarkeesian herself would do.

I can’t reblog this without providing a link in case anyone doesn’t know what this is. Because everyone should know what this is, I feel.
OH MY GOD. I still say “le tired” and “WTF MATE.” I watched this so many times as a teen!
