    Alison Rapp was fired from Nintendo of America today.
    First I've heard of her. Apparently GamerGate has been attacking her over her policies and actions at Nintendo, but they claim that her termination had nothing to do with the smear campaign. They made a statement that she violated company policy by working a second job that goes agains their "company culture." The reality is, she's made it clear she's pro-child porn. She wrote an essay on the topic claiming that it's free speech and that the effect of viewing child porn is over-exaggerated. She has also posted various tweets on the subject.

    It is also suggested that she posed nude with various Nintendo products for photoshoots, for that second job, and Nintendo got wind of it. I did not look into this.

    A family friendly company that has an employee that isn't exactly family friendly and is okay with child pornography. That should explain it all.

    I don't understand. So she's propedophilia and a feminazi? How does that even work?

    She had a second job under a false name, which directly violated her contract. That's why she was fired. The...other stuff certainly didn't help matters, but it's laughable that some are claiming "gamergate" is responsible for this.

    Kotaku claims that her essay was skewed and misunderstood. Either way, Nintendo is family-friendly and sexualization of teenagers and young girls is not something they'd stand for, at least not in the Western world, hence they removed the boob slider from Xenoblade Chronicles X. I don't necessarily agree with their censorship, especially in regards to Fire Emblem: Fates, but she was a problem for the company, apparently. They took issue with her tweets and views on censorship, but it was ultimately that moonlighting job that got her fired. Especially if the reports about her posing nude are true.

    Basically from what I've read, she made an essay defending child porn which was at first, thought to be fictional child porn such as lolis and other stuff in Japan. That was perfectly legal. But she clarified that people who do child porn and molest children shouldn't be punished for that since it is perfectly normal.

    Well so much for free thinkers. But defending somthing like that in America is a one way ticket to hell.

    I was going to say something about how we should do our research before jumping to conclusions and condemning someone. That maybe her point was misunderstood. But I started reading her thesis. Yeah, fuck that bitch.

    yeah . . . you found those pics . . . or is it just a rumor because big N would be suing her not firing her if that was the case
    the offical response from nintendo was that she was moonlighting under aanother name
