As a straight white male gamer who often feels like I have no way to speak up for my rights or defend my existence, thank you Alison for being willing to stand in the gap and protect me. You have paid a very real cost both financially and emotionally and endured the humiliation of being kicked out, mocked and banned and it was on my and all men’s behalf. This is no small thing, you have walked the walk. You are a hero to me and most likely many others. On behalf of myself I say thank you and wish you success and hope you feel better soon because there is a community who supports you no matter who you are.
