I’m pretty sure that’s one sentence you weren’t expecting to read today. Bits of it, sure, but that as a whole, probably not. Yes, turns out Gearbox is either one of the most progressive purveyors of sexist filth or scary good at reverse psychology. Because as far as I can tell, the number of feminists bringing the pain to the King is about the same as that of feminists campaigning for higher heels on pumps.
“I’ll tell you what, if some feminist organisation that is doing a great job advocating women’s rights worldwide, which I think is really important, can get some advantage by using Duke… go for it,” Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford says. “How is there a downside for humanity? Go for it. Take it. Use Duke. That would be awesome.” There’s something about this story that I just like. There’s freedom of speech, freedom of dissent and a sort of cheery underhandedness to it all. Faux feminist baiting has never been so lighthearted.
