He has been identified by a female police officer as Aneto Serkaasien, the CEO of the Men’s Rights Movement and president of 4chan. The (female) police officer, who conveniently asked to remain anonymous (even though she is a very brave woman), claims that Aneto is very dangerous and armed with weapons of mass misogyny.

In case anyone wanted some new games writers to follow, someone was kind enough to make this handy-dandy guide!
I feel like I should point out that Kotaku as a company is consistently incongruent with its stance on feminism and social issues in general, allowing directly contradictory opinions for the sake of clickbait.
Case in point: the Hyperdimension Neptunia game that got plus points for fanservice but down points for objectification of women.
So you probably don’t want to support Kotaku at all.
A nifty guide to the reason why you’re probably thinking “What the heck is wrong with this writer?” while reading their material.
YOU ARE KIDDING ME.
Game of the fucking year
MGS 5 confirmed for first next-gen game.
they would rather make virtual horses shit than put more women in their games
I’m not saying you do not have a point, but have you ever played MGS? As far as female characters go, it has a wide and diversified array of memorable female characters. It has its problems, it’s still skewed towards the men, but MGS is one of the last games series that deserves this particular critique.
We have blonde AND a red head.
Olga. Saves the main character’s ass in MGS2.
Eva. Outsmarts the hero and takes off with his stuff.
Emma. Literally saves the fucking world.
The Boss. Considered to be the greatest soldier to ever live. Taught Big Boss (the person in the gifset) everything he knows. Kicked his ass multiple times.
Amanda. Leader of her own mercenary group. Political activist and revolutionary
Paz. Outsmarts all the heroes at the end and steals their shit.
Strangelove. Greatest AI Programmer in the world. Canonly a lesbian.
Naomi. Considered to be one of the greatest genetic engineers in the world.
Mei Ling. Commanding officer of a fucking battleship.
Meryl. Leader of her own special forces group.
Sunny. Six year old child. Saved the world at the end of MGS4.
And yeah of course all of these women have problems with their representation, but it’s kind of laughable to say that MGS has no female characters. All of these characters are main characters who are important to the storyline, and it’s not even all of them. I will 100% admit that there are problems with their characters, and that MGS has had some horribly sexist female characters before. But the female main characters are seriously almost as numerous as the male characters, and they all have important roles.
Reid Wiseman is a national treasure.
