Hi.

The New York Times broke news yesterday that the Trump Administration was looking to define transgender people out of existence. You can read the ResetEra thread here.

Since this news has started, the hashtag #WontBeErased has been trending on Twitter being used by transgender people who are fighting for their right to exist in the United States. There is no scenario where this can be as anything other than transphobia.

This is not a tone deaf response or accidental usage of a hashtag, but the third time they have done something like this. Posts which attempt to downplay or dismiss the transphobic nature of the tweet or play things off as simply tone deaf will be moderated appropriately.

It’s more like I’m willing to separate political beliefs when spending my money.

I think Kanye is a whack job, but I’ll pay to see him because he entertains me. I think we’d be lying to ourselves here if we didn’t realize some of our favorite artists and entertainers are milkshake ducks lying in wait.

I’m just honest enough with myself to know that I’m a hypocrite if I stopped playing CDPR’s games when I still listen to Elvis and the Beatles, so I just carry on.
Again, thanks for coming into this thread about the transphobic actions of a company to tell us about how little you care.

Why on earth would they try to latch on to that hashtag to advertise games??? I mean anyone should have realized that would be seen as highly inappropriate to take a hashtag that is literally people fighting for their right to be who they are and then trying to use it to make money on games...

Are people seriously talking about the "true nature" of a company based on 2 tweets ?
Actually three at this point. Over a pretty decent period of time.

The question now is “why is this guy running the GOG twitter account still employed” because the positing styles and content is similar across the board. And if they’re different people, why are they all seemingly alt-right goons?

As a foreigner to the US without the best insight into this particular issue can someone explain?

Thank you for coming out with a strong statement. It is appreciated.

It has been explained in the thread multiple times.

Man I am so out of touch with social media and shit that I had to basically google every part of this tweet to figure out what was going on....

Pretty shitty look from a continuously shitty look company.

I was going to give this account the benefit of the doubt after the first offense, but damn, this is some next level wannabe edgelord shit. There's just no excuse when you're so clearly referencing the context that you're mocking.

Please please tell me that the mods and admins of ResetEra are under serious discussion of actually banning OT threads and discussions of games from CDPR. Pls. I think the site owes it to our sizeable trans community here.

This is so incredibly fucking stupid. What would make more sense is making a sub-forum called politics and gender discussion so we can actually have a forum about games.

I think they should just outright release a statement that they fired their PR Twitter higher ups.

Because this is getting pretty ridiculous. It is the 2nd time it happens AND the first time it happened their "apology" was the most bullshit they could ever come up with.

Unless they are actually after the GG money, but then at that point I am not sure I would like to support them as a consumer.

These transphobic motherfuckers. I'm glad I've never been interested in their games and have never given them a cent. No way this is tone deafness at this point. This is a clear pattern.

The hashtag used in the tweet is a new hashtag made yesterday to fight back against Trump administration trying to get rid of trans rights. The tweet is saying that the Hashtag original purpose is not a good use.

I have cancelled my cyberpunk preorder and I’m not kidding. This company continually violates what I find to be acceptable behavior. Bye.

It's quite simple guys. Stop using GoG and don't buy Cyberpunk 2077 on sale. Whining on here or on Twitter will do nothing in comparison to disappointing sales for their big budget release.

I have a feeling everyone posting in this thread will be cross referenced with the eventual Cyberpunk 2077 OT in order to form the new "Modern Warfare 2 boycott" Steam group picture.

This is the company that people drool over in the internet. It's not the first and won't be the last time they'll do it but as always it'll be ignored.

I love their games but jesus, the company is a complete shit and disrespectful with this matter.

This is like the third or fourth time at least they've tweeted this kind of shit.

3rd time. You're not aware of/forgetting the very first one, the explicitly Pro-GG tweet that was taken down but had no apology issued.
They are after GG money, straight up

Elvis and the Beatles (whatever wrong thing they did, which I'm not aware of) are not alive to profit from your money, and especially can't use your money to spread hate speech.

I also love that in a post literally confessing to be an hypocrite, you still try to somehow spin it as you being superior to everyone else, because they're also hypocrites but you're more honest than them.

Good post. We need another resetera feedback thread to discuss this. Irs important for mods/adms to ban/edit those kind of bad atittudes for resetera not become the twitter.

This thread is another reminder that this industry is full of transphobic people, whether in development or those who play the games. Brushing this aside is as bad because you are enabling this bigotry, I really am thankful for the strong response too, though, somewhat surprising honestly given the past.

Games have been banned from this forum before. This is no different. Budget shouldn't be a factor.

the games don't have any of those themes, it's only the guy who manages the twitter account. i don't think they're gonna get banned

Politics and games are entwined today more than ever. Similarly, the shitty politics a game company subscribes to is just as valid of a topic for discussion. This is not the generation of pong and pac-man.

I'm sorry that our fights for civil rights get in the way of you enjoying games. I know that's a massive inconvenience and I hope you'll forgive us.

Yeah, what a bummer that a thread about a transphobic tweet isn't talking about the games. This is a forum with literally tens of thousands of threads about games, you are being well-served.

Most people didn't care about the Koichi Sugiyama stuff, most won't care about this. They will release a non-apology and people will keep defending the companies that make their favorite games.

"It's just the PR guy"
"But what about all the other people working on the game"
"They are from another country, they have a different culture, can you blame them?"
