This gamer gate crap is so long-winded and confusing I don't even know how to comment on it.

But I will say this, where is this myth coming from that horny geeks actually get turned OFF from the idea of hot chicks who play video games?

This is the thing that makes me roll my eyes at the feminists going about all of this, I think their idea they are being persecuted for being women who like gaming is mostly fantasy.

The thing is when you actually look at these people who genuinely act like psychopaths towards women on the internet, it's usually only about four or so of them at most, very rarely you get a whole swarm of users bitching at someone unless they've done something genuinely stupid and they clearly can't seem to tell that. Hell, on this forum there are some classic examples, only a few on the internet genuinely give a fuck about women playing games and stuff and frankly yes, the idea of a woman playing me on Battlefield is hawt Cheesy

#GAMERGATE ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN COST GAWKER OVER A MILLION DOLLARS






"Ultimately #GamerGate is reaffirming what we’ve known to be true for decades: nerds should be constantly shamed and degraded into submission,"


... Gawker writer Sam Biddle tweeted in October, sparking a firestorm of outrage which solidified into a sustained letter-writing campaign to Gawker's advertisers, which continues today, against the bullying of marginalised groups by mainstream media outlets.


A number of advertisers, including Adobe and Mercedes-Benz, distanced themselves from Gawker after receiving communications from GamerGate supporters. It is not known how much GamerGate, a consumer revolt advocating better ethics in video game journalism and rejecting feminist critiques of video games, may have cost other publishers. 

Gawker, together with Vox Media, represent the "worst offenders" in the media, according to GamerGate forums: they have both, through properties such as Kotaku and Polygon, respectively, repeatedly mocked video gamers and uncritically reported claims of threats and harassment from feminist campaigners which are falling apart under closer scrutiny.

Parallels have been noted by GamerGate supporters with the U-Va. rape controversy currently engulfing Rolling Stone magazine, in which an outlandish gang rape claim was reported by the media without, it seems, the proper fact- or sense-checking being performed on stories that were published alongside sensationalist editorial about rape culture on American campuses.

GamerGate supporters accuse feminists of manufacturing threat claims to deflect attention from criticism of their outlandish claims about video games: for example, that games promote violence against women and contribute to an "atmosphere of misogyny" in popular culture.

In recent years, Gawker has become closely associated, in particular through its Jezebel blog, with these radical feminist activists, who demand that their stories of rape, abuse and harassment be believed without journalists being allowed to perform basic checks. This principle, say GamerGate supporters, critics of Rolling Stone and others, runs contrary to basic journalistic ethics, which require more scepticism before the widespread publication of serious allegations.

As if to illustrate this point, GamerGate today drew attention to the case of Brianna Wu, a transgender far-left agitator whose claims of rape and death threats were widely republished by credulous media outlets, but which appear to be disintegrating under scrutiny.

Supporters today noted that despite Wu's claims to have been driven from her home and to effectively be "on the run" from her threateners, every on-camera interview she has conducted to date has been recorded at the same location.

Wu has also been accused of trolling, fabricating threats and blaming GamerGate supporters for "doxxing" her--that is, revealing her personal details on the internet--with no evidence that communications came from anyone associated with GamerGate.

Denton said on Wednesday at a Gawker staff gathering that appointing Joel Johnson to the position of editorial director of Gawker Media had been "a mistake." Although Gawker's revenue continues to grow year-on-year, GamerGate supporters can rightly claim to have given the company a significant bloody nose.

The management changes at Gawker announced this week follow the removal of Sam Biddle from the company's Valleywag blog after his offensive tweets and near-silence from the company since a series ofconfused apologies and panicked clarifications.

Anita Sarkeesian Should Not Help Develop Mirrors Edge 2 (Petition Included)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0D3D8Y1aqiw


https://www.change.org/p/ea-games-remove-anita-sarkeesian-from-mirror-s-edge-2-game-development



Danielle Bristol
Syracuse, NY

We the undersigned are presenting our names in solidarity against the decision of EA Games and DICE to include Anita Sarkeesian in any aspect of the game development of Mirror's Edge 2. Our reasoning follows as thus:

Anita Sarkeesian has no credibility or experience in game development. She is merely a self proclaimed critic and her opinions should offer no sound foundations in the development of this or any game. She has no experience in the industry.

Anita does not speak for gamers, female or otherwise, on the difficulty or appeal of games. She only offers personal insights catering to her own agenda. In fact, she went so far as to say that women needed a whole new "simplified" control set for this game, based on her personal experiences, passing them off as the opinion of the female gaming community.

In the past, Anita has even spoken against her status as a gamer, only to rebut her stance to serve her own purposes.

We are not against strong portrayls of women in video games, but believe that consultations on games should be given by more credible and experienced sources. We agree with Anita's right to voice her opinion on any subject matter she sees fit, however we do not agree with her input on a professional level and do not want to see the game we love influcened by ignorance.

Whether or not the original "agitators" have credibility isn't relevant to me. The underlying truth that there is rampant misogyny, racism, and homophobia on the internet holds true for the gaming community as well, as it is just a smaller subset of the whole internet. You don't have to spend very long on Xbox live or any MMO to run into these things. Ms. Sarkeesian could be proven to have made up all her allegations and personal experiences, but it wouldn't change my perception of the problems, as I am a gamer, and I've seen name-calling and taunts firsthand, and I don't think it's a small number people causing this problem.

Oh please, if you actually look at the users doing this you'll find it's not actually as many as they're claiming, yes there are dumbasses out there and we have our own homophobic and racist morons that I constantly bait because it's funny but if things were really that bad you wouldn't even be on here. Same goes for sexism really, if I ever see a woman bitching about misogny and actually look at the comments made towards her it's usually just a few assholes trying to spam her, as was the case with this woman, she then decided that all men are the enemy and we as gamers needed to be attacked.

Again, I'm not speaking to any claims made by others, but from my own personal experiences. It's far too pervasive to be "just a few assholes." I'm making no judgments as to whether Ms. Sarkeesian's personal story is true or not. She could be lying her ass off, but still be describing an accurate situation; one I've seen myself.

When you take into account actual numbers it's not as bad as some people make out and yes, I consider them to be a a few very persistent assholes and they generally tend to be people nobody likes in the first place.

You can't limit free speech especially online, I dont care if your feelings get hurt, if they get hurt dont go on the internet and go live under a rock. #RealSheet im tired of this BS censor nonsense. You can't limit me fools.
