Anna is wrong. I do not know anyone who knows her well enough to say whether she knows when she responds to this (source: here) (April 2012) with this that she is distorting information.
That is: I don't know if she is consciously lying or just unable to tell lie from fact.
Like in today's blog, she claims on the one hand she never attacked us and then immediately links to a page where she falsely accuses me of shit.
"I have from time-to-time written about Zak in an anonymized fashion (i.e. "I have attacked Zak and his game group"), such as my original Gaming as Women post. But in each instance I attempted to file all of the serial numbers off of the incidents, and have always said when doing so that people SHOULD NOT name the person being discussed if they are aware of the circumstances being discussed."
Like not using the words "Zak S" somehow makes it not an attack anymore?
Like the people who harassed me and the women in my group didn't consistently link to her "Rebellious Artist" post as "evidence" we did something wrong?
Anna supported their harassment. Straight up. Every second of her life she didn't erase that post and the false claims in it, she was supporting it more.
She goes out of her way to point out that I used her real name. Of course I did--the person I was talking to introduced her into the conversation (out of nowhere) and only used her real name. Her real name was the only name in the conversation. He said he wanted to put a product he disliked to "The Anna Kreider test", I responded (basically, full text linked above) that was kind of like the Phyllis Schlafly test.
Check the link if you think I am lying.
She also denies spreading or supporting the Something Awful libel article in a post where she links to the libel article and two retweets that support the claims in it.
You can't really get more reality-blind than that.
The rest of what she's saying has long ago been debunked. No-one has ever come forward to dispute that.
You don't have to pick who to believe, either. I will answer any question and will provide any evidence if asked. You may ask anonymously here. Anna, on the other hand, has made it a point of pride not to provide evidence.
Or just believe the victim: us.
We didn't back down from pointing out Brandon Morse's rhetoric was bigoted and we're not going to back down from pointing out Anna's is, too. If she wants to apologize for the harm it does and then attack me for pointing it out in the same breath, she has a problem.
So if you want to believe her: that's ok. But know you are believing her because you want to, not because you actually checked anything.
|Oh, look, Anna has now redefined "sealioning" |
as "disagreeing with Anna"
