This is what happens when an adult man is too important for his own ego and get's spurred by those hot cosplay babes and has a tantrum.

He reeks of 'friend zoned' mentality.

I said I gave it a week before we get an insincere apology and a horde of dude-bro's defending him because they're nice guy's but girls just totally use them you know.

The author of the negative comments sounds like a guy who is just really sexually frustrated (married or not) and wants to take it out on the people he percieves as causing the frustration.

Mostly he just makes me laugh projecting his own insecurities and inadequacies upon others in the form of a rant.

Apparently he's a married man with two kids.

Looks like he's showing great promise in those categories.

Reading the article, he seems to hold at least some contempt for all fans regardless of gender.

Cleaned up version of what I'd like to say of him: Nuts to his opinions. I consider them poorly informed.

Professionally, he's retarded. Why would you alienate so many potential fans and customers?

He thinks he's way more important then he actually is.

It's one of the rare things I enjoy about social networking, when something like this happens the amount of people who rally together is astounding and I've been pleasantly surprised to see some very well thought out (if not heated) responses.

As he said, "we are Legion", or whatever. He honestly, truly thinks that there are enough people who agree with him that he does not have to face any real life consequences for his reprehensible comments.

He might be more accurate then we'd care to think.

I'm not saying there's a dearth of douchebags in the world, but the fact that people are pushing back and saying, "yo, this is wrong and we don't like it" in larger, louder numbers gives me hope.

I read that as 'darth of douchebags' for a moment...

/ahem/

I agree, the amount of well thought out responses and gathering of folks through social media and the like is very positive and I am liking what's coming from this.

But on the other side, when you have people like this guy who are so set in their opinions no amount of 'good guys' coming out and speaking up will really change that. For every 10 folks who speak out against what was said and are rational well spoken individuals there's going to be a bunch of dudebro's who pat the guy on the back and tell him how he's totally on the money and girls are just skanks. Which voice do you think he'll listen to? (that isn't meant to be sarcastic) My bet is on the dudebro's who share his opinion and are not offering any dissent.
