I used to follow her on instagram (for scientific research) back when she was just your common garden-variety cosplayer, but it seems that there's more cheddar to made from suckering tragic losers into donating money so they can see her "lewds" where she'll show more skin and let them think they maybe have a chance of hooking up with her, so she's been a streamer for a while now. Earns very good money from her patreon, apparently, which is a sad indictment of modern society.

She's undoubtedly hot, but hot girls on the internet are a dime a dozen so I'm more than ok with dropping the racist ones from my wank bank.

strawberry float.

In a "white dress/blue dress" type way if you listen to the original with "I guess they have that in the grocery store too now" in your head... It does sound like she says that.

But it also sounds like the n word.

Hmm.

She tweeted 15 minutes after the "I said Grocery Store" that she actually said 'BIGGER' store, she did not say grocery at all.

Make of that what you will.

Yeah, like I say there is a subtle hint of an "s" sound which points at the possibility that the word was intended to be "grocery" - but if that the case the FFS lady work on your elocution because you are impossible to understand and this kind of thing is going to keep happening.

It's still much easier to here the n word though.

I think Twitch in particular has a very 'hazy' set of rules, a Twitch streamer tweeted out some Mixer rules and they are hyper specific in terms of any nudity or 'cleavage' on screen which I think is whats needed. Twitch are so far ahead of the other streaming platforms they just don't care.

I'm not hearing anything that remotely sounds like grocery. She's mumbling through that whole clip which doesn't help but it sure as hell sounds like the n word.

I really don't know how much longer i can keep myself engaged with gaming culture. I'm getting on for forty years old, and i cant imagine any hobby that is more embarrassing to be associated with due to the culture it breeds and attracts.
It might have to be necrophilia from here on in - the cowards way out.....

Videogames are too big a medium to have a single "gaming culture". I think even describing "streaming culture" is too broad (and it's not something I engage with much at all) so I wouldn't say things like this reflect on gaming as a hobby in any general sense.

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

kaz, in my view it's a lot worse than this, dude. It's not just gaming culture... it's everywhere. The "gaming" aspect is, in my view, an irrelevance. It's not gaming that is bad or toxic, it's people. Throughout our cities, towns and villages... amongst our communities, neighbours and friends... this kind of thing exists. It's not gaming that is the problem, it is the thinking and the attitudes.

Sure, we can find examples - many, many examples - associated with people who are into gaming. But, on the other hand, not everyone is like it. Some, but not all. It's positive that these examples are called out and highlighted; they offend, they cause anger, and that's a good thing. It's not accepted as much as it used to be; it's not ignored. There is a long way to go, but things like this show that it's on the way out. Not as quickly as we would wish, but it's changing.

This is a weird one! When I first played it before reading others accounts I heard and am still hearing "Can we get some poki on the ethnic aisle, how do you say that n-word store two down, romanaie some ethica."

So this is a twitch streamer who has been accused of saying the n-word and she denies it? Things to consider:

* She is in a relaxed state, brushing her hair like a mermaid on a rock, not speaking in anger, so what she said was deliberate. By UK standards I don't think even a racist girl would say the n-word like that without it being there being some kind of psychological reaction such as a guilt expression as with the PewDiePie PubG clip where it registers and he says 'sorry' a few seconds later . HOWEVER, this is the USA and who knows what kind of small town places she lives! It may be the case that she lives in a mostly white area where it is completely normal for the n-word to be used in everyday speech with teachers and preachers.

* The context of what she was saying. A larger clip that shows what she was talking about before and after could reveal the conversation topic.

* Her streaming history can indicate her character. Has she gone a clean record?

* A lip reader would help but where she is meant to have said 'Bigger Store' her mouth doesn't look pursed enough to be pronouncing a B, but what do I know?

* She should translate the whole clip.

I know mate. Every week it's this scandal or that crime and I've been asking myself if I'm too far removed from it all. I just care about the games but what's scary is I've been thinking more and more if the day will come that I hang up my hat?

In most cases I really do hate the term "community", outside of maybe my own street, like we're all supposed to strawberry floating know each other or somehow the bloke playing DiRT Rally on his PC on a weekend is also supposed to be associated with some racist 12 year old in America playing Fortnight.

What was once perhaps true because they existed in such small numbers, now just looks like a silly generalisation of people with a shared interest, religion, race or whatever.

True. But generalisations are made by the games media, most don't have a clue what journalism is. They use their platform to espouse their personal politics and often they tarnish all gamers under the same brush to denigrate others and position themselves as superior, both intellectually and morally. It's a mainstream industry that is unprofessionally written about as if it is a niche but, I would argue, it's these tribal rantings that deliberately damage the perception of gamers. I like the gaming, but don't care for the discussion of the culture.

Thanks for the replys acknowledging my genuine doubts about gaming as a cultural thing. Obviously this is not a me topic, but gaming is my no 1 hobby and passion, so it does chip away at ones resolve.
Jawa - your absolutely right in what you say, but this just feels like one more thing in a long list of gaming "taboos" (not the right word really I know). The association with shootings is one I don't agree with so I'm happy to "set that aside" as there are far bigger political motivations to be blaming gaming for those tragedies, but all the hateful slurry and threats made to developers for exercising their free will and naturally capatalist desires really grates. I'm not sure if the same kind of gooseberry fool got slung at the GoT creators despite the massive disappointment many felt with the ending of it. It just feels like gamers are a particularly ... Special group.
Mr Biffo has an excellent article on Digitiser 2000 today that really resonated with me.

I think she says ******. You can even see her 'oh gooseberry fool' reaction as she says it.

Yeah there's not much doubt that she says it. Especially after reading the other posts where she claimed to have said "grocery" only to later change it to "bigger".

I have no idea who she is though, other than this site I don't bother with gaming "culture". I enjoy playing games and arsing around on here, I couldn't give a gooseberry fool about the rest of the "culture" as it is horribly embarrassing.
