Indeed. The text is a nice, manipulative propaganda piece. While I don't know women in the game industry, I know several female engineers, in EE, CS and some other fields. Some of them are very attractive, some are more plain. (I don't mind either way, conversation is far more important than looks.) Now, from their comments, there is no specific discrimination against women in tech. Some think there may be a slight bias either way, but not anything significant. Of course, incompetent women get yelled at and derided just the same as incompetent men, but they though that was rightfully deserved. And the one thing that they universally find quite repulsive is women playing the "women card" to get ahead instead of demonstrating solid skills. Most of them have observed that happening.

My conclusion is that this is nothing but a part of an ongoing power-grab effort by styling women as victims and men as primitive cave-men.

They just send data to some server they own in clear and they know your last public IP. For spywork, that is enough. If laws are draconian enough, they are also sure to find _something_ when they kick down your door. Also, when you are not on US ground (warning: current state, this may change), they may also just drone-murder you and bypass any legality whatsoever.

What is certainly there is at least several JavaScript zero-days. JavaScript is complex to implement and easy to get wrong. As this is a commercial effort (as can be seen by its immorality and focus on profit), they will go after low-hanging fruit. The JavaScript engine is the most promising one.

And who said it would not affect other users too?
