Valve not updating 360 tf2
To ETF2L Prem players Degu and Pred, what did I do to you guys that warranted Degu responding to my statement on my sexual abuse with a dismissive joke, while Pred responds to it by calling me a racist slur?

According to Fuzzymellow, one particular group of players even followed them into a TF2 match in order to bully them and mock their appearance.
This same group apparently stalked vulnerable people in the workshop community, even finding their Facebook profiles, and there have been attempts to steal identities.
Warning: contains some sexual and offensive content.
The online discussion was initially provoked when one competitive TF2 player, Alex "Arekk" Uth from team Froyotech, used the transphobic term "tranny" to describe invitational TF2 player Jenny "Nursey" Tempalski live on a Twitch stream.
The responses have been, extremely disappointing to put it lightly & here is my response to the situation at hand pic.twitter.com/V5Rhe SZ8BC— Tagg (@That Guy Tagg) August 6, 2018 And the problems seem to extend far beyond the competitive TF2 community.
While we're on this topic of holding the community responsible.
Although many of the competitive leagues have responded with statements, bans and policy changes, some have remained silent on the issue.
Players have also reported the toxicity goes beyond the competitive sphere to almost all parts of the Team Fortress 2 community - so the question is, should Valve do more to discourage it?
Another lifelong TF2 player also posted a list of verbal and in-chat abuse she'd received while playing the game just for being a woman.
Several TF2 players have told me that normally when these things happen, no significant action is taken by the community.
