Once again, I'm behind on the news.
Morbidly obese yaoi fangirl Jennifer "Hambuger" Hepler was recently shocked and outraged to receive criticism for saying that games would appeal far more to women if players didn't actually have to play them and could skip all interaction.
Hamburger Helper suggested that games should have a button that allows players to skip the "playing" parts and go straight to the cutscenes, in much the same way that cutscenes can be skipped by players wishing to go straight to the action. She apparently does not see the obvious problem with this: that any video game that allows the player to skip the action is not an actual game and becomes simply a "video"*.
She was rightly put in her place (the kitchen amirite) for this by the internet community. Unfortunately, she has made things far worse for herself by not only failing to understand what was wrong with what she said, but blaming sexism for the nasty comments she received. Apparently, a male developer who said something like this wouldn't be mocked at all, and anyone who disagrees with her is jealous because she works in the game industry and claims to have a vagina hidden underneath her flab. Naturally, this caused the backlash to grow stronger, creating a vicious circle in which she and her white knights (see this ridiculous article on destructoid; don't read the comments: they're stupider than the ones we get on the front page) continue to blame sexism for her being called out on her retardedness. A senior figure at BioWare went as far as to donate $1000 to "Bullying Canada", an organisation whose name suggests that it's devoted to the noble task of bringing those arrogant canucks down a peg.
It is notable that she is the only sexist one here, since she seems to imply that women in particular would want to do something as retarded as buying something called a "game" and not actually playing it.
She is also an author of gay pornography disguised as shitty sci-fi/fantasy, so you might think that she should go back to writing. But she's also shit at that. Or maybe her one-star reviews are from people jealous that she has a vagina.
*And no, VNs aren't games.
