Leave it to her to spin it into a MS thing, or the fact she went on their trying to get attention. Also leave it to Kotaku(lol) to spin it in the way of the victim because Kotaku was probably paid. Then there is the fact...it's not only the fact she spun this to be a corporation thing and threw herself in it in the first place, but she made a ton of these which makes her seem like she is trying to cause a bigger issue than what this Person threw themselves into in the first place. Especially by a comedian:
This A transgender video game journalist was left humiliated at a presentation for Microsoft's latest games console after the presenter made 'degrading' comments about her gender on stage. Laura Kate Dale, a contributor for gaming site Destructoid, was at the event covering Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One system, which took place at the Eurogamer Expo in Earl's Court, London. However, she was left 'completely dehumanised' after being invited on stage and receiving transphobic comments from Fraser Millward, a comedian hired for the event. Expressing her disgust on Twitter, Dale wrote: 'Most embarrassing moment of Eurogamer. Pulled up on stage for XB1 thing and called male twice and "it" twice. 'I was "he", "it". "Thing" and "this one". I was on stage and they still insist "we need a woman on stage, any women here". 'Hope someone from Microsoft sees this. Your presenter made completely dehumanised me in front of an audience. Ruined my Eurogamer... Shows me for trying to take part and have fun like everyone else.' Dale later attempted to get an apology from the Microsoft staff on site. However, they refused to give her any details and could only 'apologise for any offence caused'. Speaking on this, Dale said: 'People at the stage "apologise that I was upset by his comments". Refused to bring him out for me to talk to... Refused to give full name, refused to apologise for his actual actions. 'This is why I regularly consider dropping out of this industry.' After tweeting her experiences, Dale received further abuse from gamers over Twitter, which she shared with her followers as an example of transphobia she faces as a trans gamer.
Laura Kate Dale @LaurakBuzz Hope someone from Microsoft sees this. Your presenter made completely dehumanised me in front of an audience. Ruined my Eurogamer.
Laura Kate Dale @LaurakBuzz Shows me for trying to take part and have fun like everyone else.

Laura Kate Dale @LaurakBuzz Screw not naming and shaming. I'm fed up of not naming these people.
Laura Kate Dale @LaurakBuzz People at the stage "appologise that I was upset by his comments". Refused to bring him out for me to talk to.
WTF is this? I guess we all have to go sue comedy central now for having comedians that make fun of every race and religion because somehow her going overboard on something she caused deserves special "attention" for no reason. Not to mention spinning it so that there are articles blaming MS solely for a comedian external contractor. Also funny how GSN is reporting this when this is completely unrelated to them technically but eh. Some reason we always got to make a special case for certain people for no reason.
