|Aisha doing Halo: Reach Promo work|
You might have heard of Aisha Tyler - if you're of my generation you'll probably know her from her fairly popular role on Friends when she was caught in a love triangle between Joey and Ross. But that was so long ago, in this 'modern era' era one of her claims to fame is that she's a well known gaming personality - though it would seem some of the 'internet folk' (read: those people who love to make jokes about your mom) got a bit uppity when Ms Tyler was announced as E3 Ubisoft Press Conference 2012.
It was apparently so bad she responded to with a verbal assault so awesomely vitriolic, mothers had to cover their babies ears each time they logged into facebook.
But you know what? As I've typed this I've just realised that Policymic is just rehashing something that happened last year! But so what? her facebook rant was pretty amazing. It shows strength. And true grit.
And given the shit that Adria Richards recently received it's refreshing to know that out there some 'gamer girls' have the balls to make sure 'gamer lads' know this gaming universe is for everyone.
Here's Aisha's letter:
I guess I'm still a child of the 1990s as I had to look up what GFYS means - and in case you were indeed wondering, it means GO FUCK YOUR SELF. Which makes me think it should actually be GFY as yourself is one word....
And here's Policymics follow up with Aisha that makes their post make sense:
