Adding on to this, here are some choice quotes from the Reddit link that Mashiki Amiketo kindly linked us to, and where he and possibly ASeven get their information:

"So this is a thing," which is a discussion about a PAX Prime panel about what the industry is like for people that aren't straight, white, cisgendered males.
Here are some choice comments:

"Even though straight white cisgendered men are not a majority, "

They are among the US game buying public, you fucking bitch.


You know what fuck Penny Arcade at this point.


In other conversations:
Then again, nothing that a feminist says ever does (make sense).



This is better than "SJWs?"

To which I reply:

Why is it that you think these morons speak for everyone?
You get angry when people say that the death threats and rape threats speak for all men.

So why are you so happy assuming that fringe morons are the norm?


Hypocrisy, thy name is Beamer.

An updated post on all "Gamers are dead" articles, with the article post time where possible. Strange how in a couple days suddenly a ton of sites decided that gamers are dead. Sure makes you feel suspicious.

Fair enough.
But, again, unlike you, I don't spend every waking hour compiling an obsessive, massive list of these things.

Seriously, you just pulled those up in about 5 minutes.
Does this not seem unhealthy to you? How angry you are?

At this point your agenda is pretty obvious and I don't think I owe you any explanation, it doesn't make any difference. You stick to your own circular logic and refuse to move out of it. Just FYI, this info is easily found using google in a minute.

Also, love your passive-aggressive ad-hominem there. Weren't you taught to avoid that in any discussion in law school?

I don't buy this, either. What would these "fuck gamers" articles, of which there's really only one, stop?

Stop lying and being intellectual dishonest.

Some of the forums discussing this are posting this post taken from 4chan. Since it's 4chan take it with a kilo of salt but an interesting read nonetheless.

"Game Journalist here.

I work for a major site, not saying which one since my silence on all of this is obvious even to my co-workers. It'd make it way too obvious who I was.

To put it bluntly; you're winning. Advertisers have contacted our site, and I know they've contacted others, and they're fucking pissed. This shit has gone on longer than anyone has expected it to, and it's beginning to affect the brands of people associated with ours and other sites. They want it to stop. And the bosses of these sites are scared; adblock has already cut deep into the money our site makes, and I know it's slicing hard into others.

This has translated in the minds of most of my 'associates' as 'make them stop no matter what', hence all these 'fuck gamer' articles. They're trying to push as hard as they can in hopes everyone backs down. The most important thing to do now is not to back down. They're shooting themselves in the foot. Save any screencaps of anything crazy anyone says, and just repost it forever. Spread it around. Get it onto social media. Spread adblock. Spread advertiser contact. The single most effective thing you can do is contact advertisers. Even 10 letters can get them to call us.

I sure as fuck don't care what happens to us; I finish getting my second degree next year and I'm out anyway. Let it burn."

SJWs making life so much better for Stardock CEO! Because death threats should only be news if it's a woman getting them.

Are you next going to point out that the newspapers are ignoring that black cop that killed that white kid? Or that there's no White History Month? When did you become O'Reilly?

Was this after the UPS incident or sexual harassment incident?


Wow, more intellectual dishonesty from Beamer! What a shock!

I'm sorry but since when were we discussing social ethnic relations? I thought we were talking about "feminism" in gaming, not race issues. But take it to Beamer to divert the talk whenever he gets beat up in a discussion. So typical of you.

Here's your SJW pals comparing gamers to ISIS. Or JonTron getting abuse from SJWs just for speaking out the obvious.

In fact, I'll correct myself: it's only news if it involves a "feminist" woman. Because when real feminists speak out against this SJW charade it's not news anymore.
