What's the deal with people hating Lydia Winters (Minecraft Chick) ? I think she is an awesome person, and an awesome contribution to Mojang.. So what is up with people hating her? And for those who didn't know she is "The Director of fun" for Mojang.
yo i think she is awesome also she reminds me of annie from LoL so that makes her evan more awesome...and why they hate on her? cus they with they knew someone as cool s her and so on so ya...haters going to hate.....
My opinion is that she got to where she is today by being a woman. A name like Minecraft Chick obviously implies that she wants people to know she's a girl, because "gurl gamers r ttly awesum."
So, no, I'm not fond of her. Is that reason enough to post?
i wasn't hattign on the fact your posting i was just unsure of your opinion.....but none the less i don't think its juts cus she is a girl thats sexist k so what if she is there are some really famed people online who are not even close to being girls...so thats still an immature reason to think that :|
I personally don't hate her (or anyone for that matter), but she's a difficult character to warm to for a few reasons.
Her rise to popularity seems largely due to her gender and the fact she plays Minecraft. I don't think it's right to exploit gender for increased exposure.
I also believe that her Mojang employment was also largely gender based. I can't see Notch randomly exploying a fun male Minecraft community member in the same way.
There are plenty of female Minecraftians, in fact probably way more than many people realise, so I find using this in a niché way for popularities sake is pretty untasteful.
Her hosting duties at Minecon also compounded the issue a little bit. It was a relatively awkward and unnatural performance making it fairly difficult to watch at times.
That said, it's clear that Lydia does a lot more than just "fun" at Mojang. She appeared to be Notch's PA half the time, based on Notchs livestream and various other videos throughout the weekend.
And if she was serious, her move to Sweden in a few months proves she's dedicated to the company and plans to be a more integrative part of the team, long term.
i can understand your opinion and respect it...i see what you mean after watching some of the vids about her begin awkward and yes I'm sure her gender is part of it...but i still think that she's not a person to be hated...you watch some of her other stuff and she is fine...i think lot of it was maybe stress..i mean it was the first time mine craft did anything this big and I'm sure it took some toll on her since i doubt she has ever had to do anything like that before...but thats just what i think....
thats sorta dump point...i can conceid the point that some times peoples aprence bothers me cus i don't enjoy it...but if they do then good for them and support that fact...there is no point in posting something if you just going to be mean about it...you really had nothing interesting to say and you comment was sorta immature in the sense you can't respect others so...ya
