GOG, diminutive of Good Old Games, is the successful digital publishing arm of CDProjekt. If that were all they were, we wouldn't have this article.
Developed by CDProjectRED, corporate contemporary of GOG, The Witcher follows one Geralt of Rivia, protagonist of Andrzej Sapkowski's series of dark fantasy novels, on his quest to... well, if feminists are to be believed, humiliate all the women of Temeria by going Descartes on their peasant asses. Nevermind that there are some 16 sluts possible in a game spanning 80+ hours, and some of those are mutually exclusive. Let's just... listen and believe, shall we? What heinous depravity is on display that forced ever rational feminists into a menstrual rage?
The Witcher 2
Ever one to cave in the face of howling Westerners, CDP announced early on that Witcher 2 would have none of those damnable sex cards, so SJWs should have been able to rest easy. One of this mindset clearly doesn't know what he's up against. A preview rolled around showcasing the tutorial, and... what's this? Some poor woman is being tortured? Pay no heed to the fact that it was a dungeon, and by this point the viewer had seen several men tortured, there's a fictitious woman to protect! Once more, CDP showed the world what massive balls they had by removing a plot critical scene because a few women were wringing their hands over it.
GOG Customer Service
The corporate execs at CDP had demonstrated years before that they wither in the face of criticism, but those guys worked down at HQ; what about the mid level people, staffers in their GOG publishing arm? That had yet to be seen until April 2015.
While Good Old Games specializes in archaic titles long since out of print, they also distribute games with an "old school" feel, as was the case with Pillars of Eternity. Within said game lies an easter egg of sorts on a gravestone; it was neither placed by GOG or that game's developer, rather, it was bought with a hefty bid from a Kickstarter backer.
Anyone of sound mind knows it's a harmless, perhaps even humorous joke. One tranny who purchased the game didn't think so, but let it not be said that they are of sound mind. It immediately fired off an email to GOG customer support in a rage, demanding it's fetid money back, and received this response.
That should be the end of it, right? Not in America, you heteronormative commie. The above exchange was posted to Reddit by a user named "legallyawoman" (what else). Before long, several feminist rags and even that attention whoring fucker Brianna Wu were all over this, shouting transmisogyny from the rooftops. It's almost as if the lynch mob deliberately failed to notice that GOG is based in fucking Poland, and said employees likely have no idea what the fuck you freaks are.
What can we take from this? Nothing we didn't already know, but here's a parting shot.
