A bit of the love and tolerance some of the SJW big names preach, just for the fun of it.

This pic may help understand the rabbit hole a bit better. Basically, it seems there's a lot of connected people who are related to the "Gamers are dead" movement. Coincidence?

Also, it seems Zoe Quinn's use of a charity to receive donations without a prior agreement from the charity may be a crime.

"The unnamed party that contacted IFred claiming donations were made under a name other than Depression Quest, though they could not verify the accuracy of this claim at the time. Further discussion confirmed that no relationship between the parties existed prior and the organization was unaware they were being named as a beneficiary or in marketing materials. As Twitter user @Aurora_Leblanc pointed out, this is problematic to the laws applicable in some states as they govern soliciting on the behalf of charities."

Anita has never reported anything about death threats to police as she claimed. A mainstream journalist has now investigated and confirmed it.

And here's the NeoGAF's guy attitude on NeoGAF, it frames with that tweet beautifully.

Stop being intellectually dishonest, Beamer, you are becoming a bore.

But what will he argue about then? And with who?


Himself?

Verno and nin, and you guys applaud this. But, again, when one gamer sends death threats, it's all "oh, but it's just one guy, don't paint us in the same light!"
Doesn't that seem... weird?

Death threats? You mean, the ones that SJWs made to a 10-years-old? Or the ones made to this guy for writing an article SJWs didn't like? Or the SJW that said killing all men is a valid thing because of Gamergate? You mean those kind of death threats that apparently you think to seem don't exist coming from the SJW camp?

Stop being intellectually dishonest, Beamer, you are becoming a bore. Making death threats to a 10 years old, that's beyond despicable and yet it was your SJW mates that did that.

Oh and the guy I posted that tweet about isn't just any guy, he's the head of NeoGAF. You can't use the fallacy of "it's just one more guy acting like a jerk" on him because, you know, head of NeoGAF and all. He's not just one more guy, he's one of the main players of your SJW buddies, and he's now a proven misogynist and hypocrite.

A bit of SJW hypocrisy. The head of NeoGAF, one of the most prominent people to call every gamer a misogynist, has this to reply about a girl gamer that goes against his narrative.

Who are the real misogynists in this, one has to ask.

Videogames are absolutely for everybody but RPS isn't for me anymore. Sorry John but too much non-gaming silliness.

Exactly what I was going to say. Nothing but self-promoting drama queens at RPS.

Same here. When they started their SJW agenda they turned me off slowly until I no longer visited the site. As Verno said, too much non-gaming silliness.

One of the best articles out there about Gamergate. This is getting huge propotions, Al Jazeera, ABC, Slate, all these are mainstream news sites and they all covered this.

This is growing beyond gaming and it's showing the world just how corrupt and unethical these people are.

This got huge right now. AlJazeera has posted an article on this. A major news network now has the focus on #Gamergate.

"Criticism of video games and gaming culture, for misogyny and other issues, is commonplace. But a counter trend alleging corruption and condescension in gaming media is now spreading through the hashtag #GamerGate (link is external). The hashtag has been used (link is external) more than 189,000 times, as members of the gaming community debate what they call snobby attitudes of gaming journalists towards players."

GamerHeadlines also posts about the #Imnotyourshield, a new campaign that shows women and minorities saying they want no part of the SJW movement.

"While nothing of note has happened on the gaming media side of events, it looks like the gaming community is once again trying to be heard. And this time, the voices come from a multitude of diverse sources. #NotYourShield is a recent trend that has cropped up on Twitter, coming from several ‘minority’ groups, including women and people of different races, claiming that they are being ignored in the conversation regarding #GamerGate."

Seems there are some consequences for lack of ethics and attacking your own customers that feed you. Traffic in many of the sites associated to the gamer's death debacle is sharply down.

Also, a gamasutra article may have lead to the downgrade of the author of it. People are trying to find more details.

Fun!

Can you sum it up? Youtube is crappy while I'm on the train.

You can always watched it when you have time It's too much to TLDR

If you followed the drama through youtube videos so far this one is gonna leave you stunned

And one more video by MundaneMatt that discusses the trend of comparing gamers to nazis. Yeah, it's a real thing now.

10 Things You Need To Know About The #GamerGate Scandal

"Articles everywhere have sprung up overnight claiming that ‘gamers are dead’, or ‘gamers are killing gamers’. Chances are you’ve seen one of these articles with whatever sensationalist title they’ve used to draw you in, but why are people saying this? What does #GamerGate mean?

Well, to put it simply, the general gaming public are concerned with the quality and integrity of video game journalism. Much evidence has surfaced over the past few weeks that exposes many gaming journalists have personal ties with the people they sponsor and write about. Type in #gamergate on any social media site (Twitter and Tumblr being the most bountiful) to be flourished with a wave of evidence supporting this.

And how have the journalists over at Kotaku and Polygon and the like reacted to this? With interesting and critical analysis of their own practices and methods? No. Fact-checking all the sides of the debate before coming to a reasonable and logical conclusion? No – just pointing fingers at gamers and saying that they are to blame. With this barrage of accusations from journalists and their followers, it can be pretty difficult to find out what GamerGate is truly about.

This article should help clear things up."

Is Radical Feminism Hindering the Progress of Video Games?

"Before I begin let me state that this article isn’t some hate filled rant about how women are evil or how feminism is ruining video games and life for men. Of course, some radical types will see the title and see that it’s written by a man and immediately mark it down as sexism, but I hope the rest of you will give it a chance as I try to explain how the radical feminist movement is actually hindering the progress of video games rather than helping it achieve the diversity that they wish for. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of mention in the media of Zoe Quinn, the developer behind Depression Quest and her rise to power in the video game industry. You can read more about this here but for the time being I’ll be ignoring this completely. In this article I’ll be exploring some of the points that are brought up by feminists concerning sexism in video games and how not only are these points incorrect but how they are damaging the actual feminist movement."

Lying, Greedy, Promiscuous Feminist Bullies are Tearing the Video Game Industry Apart

"It's a fact of life that the video games industry is awash with marginalised, troubled people who have found it difficult to manage their lives in mainstream society. It's particularly the case when you look at independent or "indie" video game developers, a remarkable proportion of whom suffer from depression or anxiety disorders. Many of these people end up as enthusiastic campaigners for one or more causes they feel deserve wider attention.

The journalists who cover games and gamers are subject to similar peculiarities and challenges, which perhaps explains widespread frustration from players that every blog out there seems more concerned with policing misogyny and "transphobia" than reviewing the latest game releases. As a result, gaming sites and their readers have drifted apart in recent years. Journalists have sided with activists to pen soporific op-eds about the need for "equality" in video games, while the people who actually play games just want to know if the latest instalment is good value for money.

Meanwhile, there have been grumbles that journalists are getting too close to their subjects, and that they speak ever more insultingly about their bread and butter customers – that is, their predominantly male readers – the longer they spend in the company of feminist activists and other agitators."

Powerful article by Milo Yiannopoulos who already got death threats over it. His response on twitter:

Email death threat count now in double figures. Things I won't be doing: calling the police, making a video, writing a blog post. #GamerGate
