I think this article was written as space filler, as well as to stimulate conversation. I am not sure Sanya expected this serious of a reaction to it though.
Cut her a little slack, I have always enjoyed Sanya's articles, I just think this one made a bigger splash than she anticipated. I highly doubt there is really an evil mastermind plot behind it. It is an opinion piece meant to share a bit of the MMO world with the public. It is unfortunate that it generated a giant target on her forehead.
Honestly though, it's been one hell of a conversation!
For the record: I'm entirely sick of hearing that "white heterosexual males automatically have it easier than X, Y, or Z category."
That's as horrible as saying " I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life."
Because, you know, white people are so busy holding everyone else down that they don't have time to be as naturally talented as any other demographic.
p.s. I am not white, I'm just tired of people spouting garbage that is 30 years outdated. It simply isn't true anymore. White people are discriminated against as much as anyone else. I really don't think that people should have to feel apologetic for being born white, or think that they should have to feel sorry for anyone not white.
I'm pretty much with Zorvan on everything except the Sanya bashing. I don't really think the article was meant to be as nefarious as he made out in the last couple posts of his.
