And I never said that?
I’m not sure where the art thievery should come from, but I know that she used game footage other people created without crediting it properly. To be fair, she credited it as “public domain”, which is true - Let’s Plays and Walkthroughs generally are public domain because they’re not quite reviews or satire. If they weren’t public domain, they could be classified copyright infringements - and you probably know that this actually even happened in the past despite the public domain thing (Nintendo pulled a lot of Let’s Plays and Walkthrough from Youtube, didn’t they?).
I have yet to see evidence for any fraud too, though? And I actually researched this a few times because I was wondering about the topic.
However, that was still not okay. She should have credited properly, with links to the original creators. While I never saw any claims from her side that she would have created the footage herself, and it’s not illegal how she acted, it was still shitty on a personal level.
However, the post was about agreeing with points she made about the role of women in games, and as you even say yourself, there are more than enough of those that are actually valid. And the person the post was amused about completely overreacted to that, essentially saying “I liked everything you do and represent, but now you agree with something I disagree with/with a person I dislike once and that totally makes you undeserving of admiration in every way possible”. And that is ridiculous.
Just because a person isn’t a good person, that doesn’t automatically make them wrong about absolutely everything they say ever. Just like good people fuck up, bad people are right and do good things sometimes.
There is also the fact that while she’s not a spotlessly good person, she’s, as far as I can see, not a very BAD one, either. What I’ve seen from her so far were all things that were rude, factually wrong or misguided. She doesn’t attack or go after people, she doesn’t consider turning the tables on men a good kind of feminism (or if she does and it just went under my radar, that happened because she at least doesn’t promote that on her channel), and as I said before, the worst I’ve seen her do so far is not crediting footage properly. So I’m kinda *shrug* about her.
To be honest, I try to keep a neutral stance though. I disagree with how she handled the footage-situation, and while I don’t keep close tabs on her I’m sure there are other things I wouldn’t approve of. But I do agree with a lot of the content she puts out. Not with all of it, mind you, but with a big portion.
The post I reblogged though made no comment at all about her as a person, it was about something completely different.
It’s kind of funny though that it was about the same misconception that happened here… agreeing with someone once or twice does not equal agreeing with them always or liking them. So don’t worry. uvu I’m trying to stay critical.

Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
