    (Some) Streamers Are The Worst

    Unfortunate quote format there! edit: the sad thing is that the guy seems to have a defence force out there saying that apparently it's acceptable to kick off if you're being nagged / have a flimsy bit of cardboard thrown at you. ffs. This country.

    Whelp the guy has decided to respond in public. https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/sydney-man-dismisses-alleged-livestream-assault-of-partner-as-one-off-thing-20181211-p50lkn.html Reminds me a bit of the "good man" speech Hannah Gadsby gave recently. https://www.marieclaire.com.au/hannah-gadsby-good-men-speech

    He’s been named and shamed in the local paper and his employer has suspended him from work pending a further decision.

    AMIGArama Podcast Episode 59: Superfrog

    I loved Superfrog back in the day. Slight correction, the CD32 version was definitely just the disk game on a CD without any enhancements. But CDs! They were the future! I’ve got the Steam version but I remember some of the level layouts being different and the physics feeling a little off.

    https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/livestream-of-video-game-films-sydney-man-allegedly-hitting-partner-20181210-p50l9a.html I doubt this is a fame grab.

    Getting back to the point, Clementine Ford pretty much nails it here. https://www.facebook.com/clementineford/ tl:dr He did this on camera. And us guys? We're sitting here debating about the level of provocation and whether she was slapped or punched. He did it on camera and on mike not because he lost control. It's because it's totally normalised. He didn't see it as shameful.

    This is the question that’s asked of survivors of domestic abuse all the time. There’s loads of reasons involving social isolation and conditioning.

    The common factor here with incidents like this isn’t Fortnite or even gaming.

    The big issue we have in my country is that a lot of men (and women) in Oz would agree with you 100%. And that's part of the issue. Let's just take as granted that she's cooked him dinner, nagged him for a bit, yelled at him and then in frustration thrown a flimsy bit of cardboard at him. A proportional response isn't to then punch her in the face. But this whole incident pretty much sums up how many men view women here. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-10/fornite-gamer-mrdeadmoth-charged-after-alleged-assault-streamed/10600992 Also 26 isn't a child, it's not an excuse. I reckon this will go away, he's spent a night in the cells and there will be a lot of hand wringing about what the future might hold for this poor man. More likely than not the woman involved will be asked / pressured to drop this so that the father of her child doesn't end up in jail.

    Apparently he’s out on conditional bail already which mean despite the AVO (apprehended violence order) preventing him from coming near her she’s in a lot of danger. I hope she has a safe place to stay.

    I’d be surprised if it wasn’t used for targeted courses in the future or even basic classes for young men in civics. Too many Australian men from 20 years up are going to watch that clip and joke about it.

    I’d be surprised if he serves any sort of time for this or suffers any setbacks. I mean men who don’t know him have already got his back.

    Heartbreaking. Some cultural context here. Australia has a massive problem with violence directed at women, especially in a domestic sphere. 66 women have died this year, the vast majority male on female violence, and in most cases by partners of the deceased women. It beggars belief that anyone would defend the streamers behaviour. Almost every women I know has had bad experiences with abusive men. It’s widespread and will take more than a generation to remove.

    It did have a certain stark beauty to it. I loved it when I could get in the zone.
