link to article on abuse; gamedev industry
Something powerful is happening this week; Nathalie Lawhead came forward and told how a man influential in the game development industry used that influence to prey on them as a vulnerable newcomer.
Nathalie's act of courage found support, and that seems to have opened the floodgates for some people. Numerous others have spoken out against their abusers.
As Zoë put it, "Nathalie threw a brick."
I'm linking to the Kotaku article here because an article is an easy thing to link to, but the stories are reverberating all around gamedev birdsite.
