Feministička učestalost pokretanja gaming telefona za sprečavanje "uznemiravanja" i "depresije"

Anita Sarkeesian ponovno se vraća na to, i tamo gdje se pojavi, očekujte da novac bude odmah iza ugla. S tim u vezi, Sarkeesian je izvršni direktor "Telefonske linije za igre i internetsko uznemiravanje", a Christopher Vu Gandin Le stoji kao direktor vruće linije. Jae Lin također će služiti kao koordinator vruće linije, gdje će sama usluga započeti 3. kolovoza 2020.

ažuriranje: As a clarification, this service has been around for months, but the actual service with “real people” will go live on August 3rd, 2020. This means the automated text will be replaced/accompanied by the “new system” early next month:

Izvorni Story: If you don’t know, we reported on Feminist Frequency’s financials, koji je ponudio zavir u ono što se vjerojatno događalo od 2016. do 2019. godine.

Prvo, financijski podaci o Feminističkoj frekvenciji za 2017. imali su početni saldo 343,721 USD, prenesen iz 2016. godine. Oni su u 254,736. godini iznosili 2017 USD prihoda i imali su operativne troškove od 438,192 USD. Završavajući 2017. godinu, tvrtka je imala saldo od 149,711 XNUMX dolara.

Štoviše, financije iz 2017. godine koje su prenesene u 2018. godinu nisu se pokazale povoljnim za feminističku frekvenciju jer je tvrtka otvorila 2018. godinu sa samo 157,490 dolara. To znači da su smanjili 186,231 dolar od onoga što su otvorili 2017. godine.

In 2018, Feminist Frequency’s total revenue intake sat around $354,525, but they had an expenditure in operating costs of $323,557, thus ending the year with just $30,967.

Zauzvrat, Sarkeesian je otpustio svoje osoblje i zatvorio urede ranije 2019. godine zbog paljenja financija kao i svaka druga budna tvrtka.

Uz to, rekao je, gamesindustry.biz reports that Feminist Frequency is starting up a “text-based emotional support service” to help developers and players cope or overcome “abuse suffered through their participation in the industry.”

Nadalje, gameshotline.org notes that the “free text message emotional support service” will go live in August and will be staffed by “paid agents trained in crisis response.”

The hotline will also help with “loneliness, grief, harassment, crunch-related burnout, self-harm, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.” Anyway, here’s the promotional video:

The official website also has a notice up saying “don’t forget to donate,” because if 2016-2019 holds any indication, this hotline won’t last long without shekel donation.

Lastly, in an attempt to prevent said hotline from going broke the month it launches, Landfall Games, Superhot, Inhuman Conditions, and Awesome Without Borders are the hotline’s current sponsors. Expect Neil Druckmann and Naughty Dog to join in too.
