Ninja says that it was his decision, not that of his wife, in order to limit their transmission to partners only to men.
“That was not for her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me being, “I love our relationship”,” he said.
“Honestly, I think that… it’s like a kind of sign of respect.”
Despite the exclusion of an entire group of players, Ninja says that he has not faced a backlash from the gaming community.
Twitch streamer Rage Darling is not particularly offended by Ninja comments.
But she says that he is “indirectly reinforce the stereotype that a lot of players are Contraction thots”.
The 20-year-old player says a Contraction of thot is something that many women on the site are labeled as:
“It’s basically someone, especially women, using their sexual identity to obtain more points of view, or more money. Someone who is fairly promiscuous”.
While others see it as a form of “segregation.”
