Doug TenNapel, creator of the popular Sega Genesis game Earthworm Jim, has attacked transgender games journalist Heather Alexandra and has begun to post numerous transphobic tweets to his Twitter account.
Alexandra posted an article to the video games website Kotaku where she criticised some of the level designs in the original game.
TenNapel quickly took to social media to complain about the article, intentionally misgendering Heather in a transphobic attack by saying; 'Heather, you're a good man and entitled to your own opinion. If you ever want to get into why we created it the way we did in the 90's let's chat.'
Since then TenNapel has tweeted further transphobic comments by stating that people cannot change their gender, and complaining that people are trying to force trans acceptance on him; all whilst continuing to misgender Heather Alexandra.
