You May Have Noticed A Small Change
Well, we got written up in the Ralph Retort, so I know we must be doing something right.
But immediately I was filled with anger. I hate that feeling. It makes me so uncomfortable and unhappy. I struggled with the feeling, and how to best show them that I wasn't going to let them bully me.
The solution came to me immediately as I thought about how these people want us all to struggle in obscurity. It isn't something THEY want, so it must be something NOBODY can have.
Well, everyone is getting it anyway. And now 100% of the profits are going back to the models.
I want to expand the project to include more women artists and creators, and pay them as well.
No matter what you do, Gamergate, it won't matter. If you're angry about this project supporting people you don't like then this project will support them even more. I will pass along to them that if they want, they can make a donation to a worthy charity themselves, but here we go:
Every cent of this project will support people who you feel should go unsupported. The art in this project will support and promote their work. The voices in this project will be paid even more money. The voices will be expanded to include even more people that you want to silence.
All you have done is given me a fire. I could have devoted that fire to anger, but instead I will use it to add to the project, support more people, and spread more love, more kindness, and more goodness in the world.
Thank you to the people in this project for inspiring me.
And thank you to Gamergate for reminding me why it's so important to support them.
