The difference here is that Liz is really casual about her transition and transgender status, while Proto is not.Proto made a run I normally set in the background a closed Window. She's not the worst couch commentator this AGDQ but damn would she not shut up. LizStar was on stream in an interview after the run and chat still tame. The worst I saw, in AGDQ chat, was monkaS. Honestly, if GDQ didn't make such a big deal about Proto, nobody would've made those comments or given a shit about trans runners. Proto fucked it for any trans runners.
Edit: Claris to Lizstar, who is a ranked 2 runner. Run is in awful block so it's mostly fun and Lizstar seems to be having fun with it given the couch so I can't complain.
From what little I've seen of Liz, "she" does not make much of an effort to pass on stream. Rather than use a facecam she'll just use some piece of fanart of her and she makes zero effort to sound remotely feminine. She straight up sounds like a man when mic'd up, and has the audacity to still demand people use she/her when she streams either on her own channel or RetrogamingLiveTV's.The difference here is that Liz is really casual about her transition and transgender status, while Proto is not.
Give me a fucking break.You're a woman? But you have a masculine voice.
I identify as female, but my sex is that of a male. Voice training is hard, man. Just please be courteous and understanding if you're not? Well, see: SEGMENT RULES for info on that madness.
I'm sure it depends on the person. There's probably people who can do it like it's nothing, as their voices are naturally higher. PMG has a pretty naturally high voice, I think. And then there's people like Liz...Voice training seems like it would be one of the easier aspects of transitioning besides just changing your wardrobe and growing your hair out.
Games Done Quick is managed by a bunch of social cucks who probably can't even make eye contact with the people who get reprimanded at their events. They're absolutely not confrontational nor are they willing to take the initiative to have a potentially negative conversation with someone who's being an annoying pain in the ass.Why does pmg have such a strong connection to ADGQ? Are they worried about pissing off trannies or him killing himself? He’s a bad runner, bad at commentary, bad on the couch. Just shitty overall and now completely insane.
Even outside of the tranny/SJW nonsense, GDQ is the premier event for speedrunning (although we all wish it wasn't). Even if PMG wasn't batshit insane, he would still (along with many others) be trying desperately to get in runs, in interviews, and on couches. For a twitch speedrunner this is not even a crazy thing to do as there aren't many big opportunities to try and grow a channel that specific. The crazy thing is how much GDQ is willing to let him get away with it.Why does pmg have such a strong connection to ADGQ? Are they worried about pissing off trannies or him killing himself?

You're not any better.Wow. Yes, voice training is hard, but not impossible. I was under the impression Liz had at least tried to improve her voice since I last saw a run of hers, but if she still sounds masculine even now... I mean I understand why people would be disappointed and it is absolutely a valid complaint.
That said, she at least puts in the effort in terms of physical appearance. Her facial structure seems to have been spared of the testosterone and in pics I've seen she looks pretty passable.
PMG is kind of in a similar boat but is waaay more vocal about Stupid Bullshit Nobody Cares About(tm).
