Well, we all know how totally unbiased the Huffington Post can be. Please note the sarcasm!
"LEVEL ONE: The Legend of Chelsea", paints the picture of a female gamer by the name of Chelsea O’Hara, who was recently fortunate enough to work at Ubisoft as part of an internship. It seems like she had a hard time convincing her parents to let her game when she was younger, but she finally succeeded. When she saved money to buy a PS3, she faced sexism when she declined an extended warrenty, to which the salesman responded "Oh, is this a gift?". This made Chelsea unconfrontable, somehow. I know! The rampant sexism! How can we let a monster like this loose on the streets!? Why does Chelsea think that this is sexism, exactly? Even if it is, so what?
"LEVEL TWO: Changing The Code", follows a programmer named Brie Code, which is her actual name. She tells the story of how she and a bunch of other developers at Ubisoft Montreal, developing a game called 'Child of Light'. This is a game aimed at female gamers. Okay, cool. She feels it necessary to point out that 25 percent of the development team was women. Alright. I am not sure why that is relevant. I mean, I can see where they are coming from in terms of overall design. The game is aimed at female gamers, after all. She likens this to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his gender parity cabinet. Why is gender a factor? Social Justice Warriors and feminists like this are so focused on the outcome that they do not care whether or not the best person is getting the job.
