Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 20, 2021

A California lawsuit earlier this year alleged sexual harassment, discrimination, and a pervasive "frat boy culture" at Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard. At least in one instance, that culture included an employee signing all of his work emails as "1-800-ALLCOCK."

Activision reportedly didn't take action regarding the email signature until it received a complaint about it just this past summer, at which point it fired the employee after a month-long investigation.

A lot of components within Activision-Blizzard's umbrella, and this is far from the first story from one of the studios to go public. Sad to hear about the toxic culture behind a successful games company.

A guy in my lab in grad school was a problem. A guy at the dot com I worked at was a problem.

It's everywhere.

Thankfully I've never seen anything as bad as this, I don't think. Hopefully I wasn't just blind to it.

snoofy, let me give you some tips:

1. Rouge and lipstick are red to imitate inflamed sexual organs, so don't.
2. High-heel shoes are designed to thrust your pelvis up and out as a sexual display.
3. Nothing showing above the ankles. Won't stop Boaz but generally effective.

You should be safe.
