A former moderator on one of the internet’s most prominent gaming forums, NeoGAF, has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.
Thirty-two-year-old Christopher John Goldberg, who went by the name “Amir0x” on social media, was a male feminist who often took to Twitter to express his hatred at “sexists” and Trump supporters, in vocal support of the Women’s March. He was active during the GamerGate debacle that took the gaming world by storm in 2014, taking the side of feminists.
The Tobyhanna, Penn. man was charged this Wednesday with 64 counts of child porn possession and one count of criminally using a computer to download the illicit materials. Goldberg told police that he believed the pictures were not illegal if they didn’t depict sexual acts, but the police didn’t buy his excuse and issued the charges against him.
According to the Pocono Record, Goldberg told investigators that he “has many fetishes” and downloaded different types of porn, including that of nude children. The man did not contest the allegations, and told police that the materials were an outlet for his urges.
