She wasn't, some people just went up and were being trolls and doing
humping grabbing stuff. It's uncouth but anyone who would think it's
relevant enough to write a specific article about must not venture very far
outside their own social media echo chambers. Gaming overall is full of
rude people like this. This shit happens in kids games like Roblox for
fuck's sake and that's a much worse issue imo. There are tons of people
like this though on the internet (often from countries which are behind in
women's rights). Any woman who has ever been on the internet can confirm
this. Definitely not an issue with the metaverse in any way, more like
"the internet is full of perverts and thus those perverts will be perverts
on whatever platform they go on, and on a platform where they can act as
bodies and approach other bodies, it is obvious that they will use those
functions in perverted ways"
It's a very predictable result. Didn't really need an article
