Story went like this basically:

Guy and girl agree that he pays for her flight and lets her stay in his hotel room in exchange she engages in sexual activities with him.

When they get there, girl doesn't want to honor their agreement, completely within her rights.

Guy withdraws consent of her staying in his room and kicks her out, completely within his rights.

Girl accuses him of sexual harassment to AGDQ staff. He gets banned for life without any investigation. She gets banned herself for 2 years because she tried to get into the venue with a fake ticket.

You know how it is with white knight companies. In holland it would probably be considered a fair exchange for her services.

I mean... I don't think what he did gets to the point of a permanent GDQ ban since the girl was obviously complicit, but he *did* solicit her first from what it seems like.

Hell, an adventurous attorney could probably twist that into some form of solicitation of prostitution (offering compensation in exchange for sex), although it probably wouldn't get anywhere.

I'll say this, as annoying as some of the decisions AGDQ has made the last few years are, I don't really blame them for just banning the dude and wiping their hands clean of it. They should've given the girl the same ban, but they probably suppose she won't even bother to come to the event considering she wasn't even willing to go with her own money in the first place.

It definitely is and they should both be locked up. Not that I agree, but the law is the law.

However, this isn't sexual harassment in any way. She abused her power as a woman to get him banned out of revenge.

? Link says it's just video-game marathons, you're thinking of something different. Also, lol at the hypocrisy of this guy wearing a cross around his neck in his Twitter profile pic despite trying to solicit sex from some streamer. Even though it was a skeazy thing to do, I do think it's kind of unfair that he was banned for life for soliciting on the premises, but she only gets a two year ban despite basically prostituting herself/initially planning to have sex with some random dude to go to this thing.
