The tweets in the images read:

At the end of the day their idea of diversity is a box to tick on a checklist. They don’t care about the merits of an individuals work 1/4
The could care less if you’re good at what you do, if you have an upstanding character, if you work hard, if you’re dedicated 2/4
You the individual means nothing. Just your characteristics. Whatever suits their narrative. It’s a fucking circus lead by idiots. 3/4
To them you are quite literally “the right color” or “the right sex”. What a warped fucking world they live in. 4/4

Bold added for emphasis.

The reason why American media doesn’t reflect the demographics of the US has nothing to do with merit and everything to do with how open casting is actually white casting because most people are unable to see a default, blank-slate character (which most protags are) as an individual that isn’t white due to assumptions and unconscious bias.
As for the “right” color thing, that exists only because 9 times out of ten (with the occasional Heimdall) the person who is playing the “wrong” color is being whitewashed or they’re a white protag playing an unnecessary audience surrogate/savior role in a country where most people are not white.

you’re extracting points you shouldn’t.
I’ll narrow it down some more: when the criticism of an indivdual game developer or character has NOTHING to do with the character/game dev,  and everything to do with the demographics the character/game dev could represent, you’re a fucking asshole.

Meet the Press is the sort of show John McCain bragged about having been on more than anyone. How comfy the five-term senator is on the show! How’s this for unwittingly damning with praise?

Shortpacked!: if you die in gamer gate you die for real

I like how you act like since gamer gate that harass, doxing, sending murder threats, rape threats etc etc is some new thing that shown up out of no where. Never mind that many SJW, Radical feminist, MRA, Anti-feminist etc have been doing so since two years ago.. it just weird that you find it wrong now but many people been doing this thing for awhile and many people have call them out. You’re just remanded me as a knight who has to save the dismal in distress and isn’t that sexist by Anita and Quinn standers?
