Phil Fish Is My Hero for His Tweets About Ferguson

FergusonRecently, Phil Fish went on a Twitter spree about two things. Misogyny against Zoe Quinn, and the situation in Ferguson, MO.

And he’s my hero for both.

Yes, it’s arguable that he’s gone a little over the top with his obnoxiousness. Quite frankly, when the situation is horrible beyond words, you have to be slightly horrible to get people’s attention. And given how often I’ve said horrible things in service of pointing out horrid misogyny, I can only support Phil Fish.

Chopper full of cancelled gamesAs for the situation in Ferguson, there are people who are supporting the fact that an unarmed teen got shot. Because he was a “thug,” which, let’s be honest, is a code word for “black person.”

Plain and simple, whether you think unarmed teens shouldn’t be shot in the streets, or if you’re a horrible human being, if a patrolling force tries to silence free press the way Ferguson PD has, you’re the bad guy. Period.

Want more information? John Oliver has an incredibly great run down of the whole situation.

    I don’t know, from what I’ve heard the Zoe Quinn situation is far from cut and dry, and might be a case of someone using perceived misogyny as an attention-garnering tactic. I don’t know for sure though. It seems like a mess. I just wouldn’t be praising someone for their knee-jerk response to what actually seems to be a fairly shady situation.

    Of course the robbery footage is relevant. The cop didn’t know about the robbery, but the robber did. It suggests what kind of state of mind he was in when the police encounter occurred.

    Phil Fish, ever being relevant. Why do you feed this guy’s ego and stroke his e-dick? Who cares if he cancels hypothetical games anymore? He just does it for the attention.
