Vorpal Tales wanted to take a moment to talk about recent news regarding Twitch and discussions about harassment. This is especially vital right now during Pride month and during the international discussion on race.
No human being should have to experience harassment or bullying of any kind — EVER. As someone who is female-bodied, queer, and disabled, I’ve experienced harassment in different forms throughout my life, and it was never justified. As it never should be justified. Whether virtual or real-world, it’s unacceptable and should not be tolerated.
As a survivor of abuse and bullying, remember that reputations can be fixed, but traumas from assault, harassment and bullying shape a life forever.
Twitch, do better to protect your minorities. Minorities, we are valid, and our experiences are valid.
