My name is Magz.
In 2006, the second week of my freshman year at Goucher College, I was sexually assaulted by one of the co-creators of the popular independent card game Cards Against Humanity. He was my next-door neighbor. Someone I thought I could trust.
It has taken me eight years to be able…
I gave Max Temkin the benefit of the doubt both in his initial 19-year-old self’s rape accusation and in his going dark after his fundamentally broken Tumblr post. He’s come back online to make jokes and not address his Tumblr post or the college scenario, blocking anyone who brings up the rape accusation along the way (he seems to think any such person is a “troll” rather than a decent human being who wants to see every party reach peace). That dude has crumbled his empire or is in the process of crumbling his empire and all he’ll have left are men’s rights activists and a few enabling friends to let him know he can keep tipping that fedora. I was never against him personally or professionally and I recognized that we can all make awful, awful mistakes without it reflecting on us now. Magz’s statement is the important one. I don’t know everything but I do know the rape victim’s is certainly closer to the truth. #HumanityAgainstSexualAssault
