    As far as I can tell there is no gaming outlet or really anybody who is reporting this. Best I can figure is it's being covered up because it doesn't fit the narrative that men are evil. I don't want to go into the politics of men vs women in the workplace or anything like that I don't want to debate it's just a waste of my time, I just want to share this.



    As a gbatemp patreon supporter I would love to see this actually get reported as a news article on the front page. I know gbatemp is an independent outlet that relies on their patreon supporters and as a supporter I am willing to double my support for this website if they simply plaster a front page news article about this.

    Please and thank you.

    I'm not looking to become some kind of journalist. The User submitted news seemed like the best fit for this. If I have to I will make contacts and do investigating and come up with sources and do my due diligence and share it.
    From there an actual journalist / article writer for this website can put it together in a cohesive news post.
    I hope that is satisfactory enough.

    Unless this is some kind of dead end hoax I couldn't imagine them (garyopa) not making an article.
    Thanks for the advice. Let's just hope this comes together and this independent site does the moral ethical and unbiased thing by reporting it like journalists should always do.
    Wish me luck and thanks again for the advice.

    I forgot
    This likely hasn't been reported on by anyone because not a single solitary shred of proof or source has been provided. As far as I can tell, literally this one Youtube video is the only report on it despite being "reported to major news outlets", which suggests that yeah it probably wasn't or it was, investigated, and likely isn't true. If a proper source with factual information provided is available, it will be reported on for sure. Until then, this is just some Youtube video by some random dude which is not a valid source.

    If we reported on every single Youtube video out there with 0 sources or proof to a matter, we'd be filled with "WALUIGI CONFIRMED FOR SMASH DLC" and other such nonsense.

    The opposite of PC crap. Animator guy was constantly sexually harassed at work by his female colleague (which this female is a great friend of their head of HR)... I'm going g too fast...
    This guy lived a rough life and Square Enix saved him financially. It was a dream job that turned into a nightmare. When he came on board he was nice to everyone and tried to make friends just like anybody would. He became friends with this woman who seem to share common interests with him and they even hung out sometimes outside of work. At this point the woman didn't show that she had any kind of ulterior motives. She had suggested that shes great friends with HR and that the HR person can fire anyone for at any time and has demonstrated it several times.
    One night they worked really long hours and this woman was not able to take the train to get home... This is in Japan by the way. She asked her friend, this unnamed man, if she could stay at his place for the night. He agreed that she could sleep on his couch. Shortly after trying to go to sleep is when her sexual advances started and would not stop. He knows what was implied when she said that her friend in HR could fire anyone at any time so he was in fear of losing his job if he didn't react to this situation in a way that made her happy. He is completely unattracted to her and is being forced into this situation and in fear of losing his job and losing his ability to pay rent and live he gave in to her. Afterwards he goes to the bathroom and cries while she is in his room sound asleep. Dude was sexually harassed hardcore, hell raped depending on how you look at it. If the genders were reversed in this story you would say the word rape. The only place that he could report something like this would be HR but in his situation that would not be smart given the relationship that the woman has with HR. He hit a dead end and had a horrible memory but he tried to just forget about it and move on, and in a bad judgment call he tried to at least appear to still be friendly with everyone including the woman who raped him. He must have been pretty convincing that he was not scarred At All by their encounter because as time went on she became an ass-grabber. He has the idea that he's going to make up a girl that he is in love with and bring it up to her and hopes that she would just leave him alone. When he told her about this fake romance with another girl she assumed that he was referring to her and when he politely let her know "sorry but no" she went home pissed off. This guy is so affected by this he is in a suicidal place. And in further messaging between the two of them he admitted that. She took that and went to HR. hR ends up firing him over his mental state and the rapist has since been promoted.

    I tried to sum it up really fast there toward the end cuz I could tell that I was running on and you're not going to read all of it. Just do this think about the last time that you heard an article of anything like this happening. Come on we all know that this happens but its NEVER picked up by the media. It's cases like this where Independent Media shines. Gbatemp is independent.
    I'll just end here at that.

    Guy in that video looks like one of those typical clickbait youtubers pulling stuff out of their ass with no substancial source.

    What Jeremy describes sounds terrible, but I also find this story fishy for numerous reasons.

    • Which news outlets got this information?
    • Were those news outlets able to confirm the story?
    • Is there evidence of these news outlets previously not reporting on women sexually harassing men because it suits their narrative?
    • Is Jeremy's source reliable?
    • Is Jeremy himself a reliable source? (and let's be honest here, he's got a history of exaggeration)

    The Quartering has had an ongoing beef with gaming news outlets that have left-wing editorials (Kotaku, Polygon, etc) so its really not a stretch to assume that things in this story aren't what they seem and that Jeremy is making it up or exaggerating it in an effort to support his belief that these gaming news sites would intentionally ignore a story like this on the basis that it was a woman harassing a guy.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Oh, yes. Do a search for Jeremy Hambly. The guy is a joke. He has a video complaining that the new She-Ra isn't sexy enough to be a good role model for young girls.

    He may very well be. I doubt it though I've been a subscriber and watched his uploads for quite some time now and almost always he has videos based in facts and doesn't mess around.

    I would be willing to accept that there is not enough information to go on here and that the guy in the video looks like some Burly Mountain Man lion clickbait POS. Lol. I mean he IS a YouTuber trying to get clicks.

    I have reached out to numerous people and I'm trying to get more solid info on this. If or when I get anything I will update this thread.

    That might be a little.....extreme. Coerced into having sex, probable (if this story is true), but "raped" is a little further than needed.

    She didn't strong-arm his penis into her--he did it out of fear; seriously, if this America, it'd just be water cooler talk about stinky genitals and wrinkly balls.

    Hell, if he was even remotely gifted with MLG skillz, he could have flipped the script on her instead of crying Shinji.

    Agreed. I hate how that term just gets thrown around when it only kind of applies a little to the relating incident. I decided to try it out myself, didn't really like to but I'm not gonna edit.. I view it as forced sexual misconduct, not quite rape. But let's be totally honest, gender swap these 2 and a majority of people would classify it as rape. Easily.
    Gender swap those 2 and watch the media pounce on it and do investigating and plaster it everywhere. They would mix it in with a little bit of an opinion piece. Heck I would go as far as to say that if the victim here went ahead and identifies as a woman starting today they might cover it.
    EDIT: srry phone screwed that reply up royally, fixed now

    If the roles were reversed, Would anyone say the man merely "coerced" the woman?

    She played Jedi Mind Tricks on him to put him in a state of fear in an effort to get some D. If a man did that to a woman to get some V, well that would make headlines "rape".
    And what about this popular "rape culture" crap that's always being shoved down our throats. Even if you're going to tell me that it doesn't fit the definition of rape even though the definition doesn't even really matter anymore they change it all the time to fit whatever narrative... It still is a case of SE promoting and endorsing a "rape culture", right? Thats a headline. If the genders were reversed I don't think we would even have to wait for any sources or facts to come up because it would already make the headlines running from pure emotion. Gotta love journalism if the 2010's

    I'd probably agree, but I still feel: if you're inviting someone of the opposite sex over to your living area and it'll just be two of you, one of those two may try something sexual...depending on factors, but the percentage is still higher than two heterosexual adults (who are somewhat familiar with each other) not trying anything sexual.

    I'll wait until further info is made available.

    One thing I wonder, how did that YT guy know about this story? Who told the source YT guy got?

    If=pulledoutofass, then bullshit=true. As far as I can tell, no one is getting at this "story".....in fact, it's just YT dude......and google results for 'temp, because we're talking about it.

    It's a concern of mine too. I reached out to Jeremy and I'm trying to hopefully get to the bottom of it and get his source and maybe some of the emails exchanged between him and the victim. I'm just a guy not a journalist or anything like that so I don't even know if I'll be taken seriously at all. If there is validity to this than I want this to become front-page news.
    I support Jeremy on patreon. If it turns out Jeremy is full of it I'm going to stop my contributions to him and if it turns out that everything is completely true then I would reconsider my supporting of certain independent outlets too. Either way I'm gonna save $$$ soon lol

    I don't know if anyone has corrected you, but being coerced into sex is still rape. Consent was not freely given.
