As we go through another round of calling out abusive people in the games industry, many of us are just waiting for the people we all know have been abusive but haven't been called out. We've heard countless stories, and yet they are still celebrated and revered.
They made your favourite games, they speak out about diversity and inclusion, they are speakers at every conference. These are extremely powerful people in the games industry and there is serious fear from their targets about not being believed and having their futures sabotaged.
For those of us who know, some of us have tried to keep our distance and have continued spreading word via whisper networks hoping that others will work to isolate them from creating more harm.

But it's not enough.
I am sad and frustrated at watching nothing change. If you are serious about ending abuse in the games industry then you have to do something about it. You have to challenge your friends and colleagues. You have to be willing to be uncomfortable.
If you are a target of abuse in the games industry and want to come forward, I will do everything I can to help you through that process.
