Eurogamer Expo: Joint statement released absolving comic/presenter of p. much everything




EUROGAMER EXPO 2013 - JOINT STATEMENT FROM LAURA KATE DALE AND FRASER MILLWARD

7 hours ago

Laura Kate Dale and Fraser Millward have come to agree that the situation which took place at the Xbox stand at Eurogamer on Sunday 29th September was an unfortunate misunderstanding on both sides. It has now been made clear that Fraser did not refer to Laura as an 'it' or a 'thing' or a 'he', and these claims have now been fully retracted by Laura and she is sorry for the hurt this caused. Fraser caused offence to Laura on stage when he publicly misgendered her by addressing her as 'this person'. Laura was also upset by statements which she saw as suggesting that she was not female. Fraser is sorry he said this, and for the pain he inadvertently caused Laura. Both parties wish to put the situation behind them and consider this matter now resolved.

People won't be half as quick to apologise as they were to condemn him.
