Ohhh my God, I actually clicked on that History of... link out of ill-advised curiosity and it was like someone writing a term paper on NerdWar 2.0 Advanced Tactics. Why is Patrick Stewart's picture there? What is with all the little cartoon girls? Are those the girls that play videogames??


Instead of trolling you could have, you know, actually read the site and all your questions would have been answered.

Are you honestly stupid enough to think that ISIS trying to hijack hashtags is an endorsement? Evidently yes. They're also keen on the BBC's "The Price Of Football" report, the trouble in the Serbia - Albania football match and the scorer of Ireland's late, late equaliser against Germany. Or they post their propaganda under the trending tags.

I was going to point out how ridiculous it is for someone using the label SJW to talk about bias, and how you're focusing on the actions of the extreme few to paint a large group and what the rest of GamerGate seems to think of that but what's the point. Come on, ISIS propaganda?!

No, obviously ISIS doesn't care nor does it even know what GG is. It's about the irony of it, because GamerGate was compared to ISIS many times. So the irony is that ISIS uses an anti-GG hashtag, even if they did it for more coverage, but still a damn fine irony nonetheless.

Also, you don't get to say I focus on a few to paint a large picture because that's all you lot, not you specifically mind, have been doing, calling all gamers misogynists, and far worse, and painting all of us under a very large brush. Before you accuse me of generalization, look at your own camp first.

I absolutely adore that you call something "non-biased." It's adorable. So cute.

And Brianna Wu has nothing to do with games journalism. WHY ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT HER IF IT IS ONLY ABOUT ETHICS?!

That's right, because it was never about ethics to you. It was always about whining about SJWs.

Beamer got mad, means I'm doing things right.

Also, Brianna Wu was the main mouthpiece on the MSNBC article, a fact you conveniently forget. Moving goalposts much, Beamer?

Stop being intellectual dishonest Beamer, you misologist of the worst kind.

Links of the day:

ISIS, yes those ISIS, supports Anti-GG. The irony, after GG being compared to ISIS and being called terrorists, is stellar.

History of GamerGate, for a non-biased history of the movement.

Huffington Post does a good GamerGate report, dismantling the narrative of the SJWs in a very thorough way. The interviewers were pro-GG women devs.

For the usual misologists, GamerGate is trending more now than a week before, again destroying their narrative. The anti-GG articles on MSNBC and CNN and BBC helped to bring awareness to a lot more people and in a good way.

Boogie, now pro-GG, has received death threats against him and his wife for his position. Funnily enough, no site mentions this.

The Fine Young Capitalists, a project to help women developers in the industry and funded mostly by GamerGate, reaffirms their support for GG. Again, funnily, no sites nor any SJWs dare to mention this inconvenient fact.

And a small reminder of what the SJWs really are.

Some interesting tidbits on Brianna Wu.

Disgusting, whomever made those threats should get caught and charged within the full length of the law.

Though on the other hand, it's the internet, where the worst trolls do shit like this for the laughs.

Ahh the annual apologizing for the previous game's launch has begun.
We must be getting close to the new BF game release.

Took the words out of my mouth. And the next BF launch will be as terrible, as bug-filled, as unstable as the previous.

Oh please, go read some of her tweets, she antagonizes people on purpose and brags about ruining careers.

This is my first time hearing about this chick and her troubles, but according to her presentation she says a lot of her "tweets" are falsified photoshops reposted by aggressors. Actually going to her twitter, you can't see her tweets unless you're a follower of her, of which there's only about 3,000

That is a complete falsehood, people and the press have archived her tweets. The protected twitter crap is a recent development because she got embarrassed when people used past ones against her then she tried to delete them.

The SJW will literally make things up to suit their purposes and people still defend them. This is insane.

Here's some clips of said twitters.

Have your opinions, but don't go thinking nobody else can have theirs because they're not the same as yours. That stupid shit benefits no one.

The irony of this, coming from you, is hilarious.

Though I gladly admit my fault in writing that phrase that way, didn't mean it to sound it like that. Perhaps I should have said:

This is why SJWs should be overwhelmed with facts to silence their lies and strawmen to keep them from spreading their hate-filled speech lest gaming suffers a backward leap so huge it may set the industry decades until it recovers.

Better?

I agree that the issue has gotten somewhat convoluted (partially by design on the part of the self-righteous crusaders who like building strawmen then later cutting them down) but I have to agree with Redmask. My fear is that if we don't at least occasionally offer up some significant resistance to the absolute face-palm stupid things the hyprocritical crusading thought police are pushing we may be sorry we didn't later on down the road. Beamer is wrong; they don't just want the occasional game with a strong female lead. They want far more than that, and without someone offering counterpoint to their idiocy, developers and publishers may eventually start listening to them. That's my opinion anyway.

They want what all moral movements in history ever wanted, control and power. Power to dictate what can be said and written and what not. Power to stop the production of anything they don't like.

They are the typical representation of thought police and anyone who knows a bit of history or sociology can tell, thought police movements never bring any good to society, never. From the Volstead Act of 1919 to Nazi Germany and their race ideology to the witch hunts of McCarthy, history has shown that anyone using any kind of "moral" ideology to push their own agenda has ended up bringing misery upon society. SJWs are a reflection of the thought police movement, self-described oppressed people who suffered some sort of oppression, be it real or imagined, and are now using it as an excuse to restrict, censor and mold society to their own ideology with the end results always being terrible.

This is why SJWs must not be allowed to keep spreading their hate-filled speech lest gaming suffers a backward leap so huge it may set the industry decades until it recovers.

For a final insight and a bit of a laugh, I leave this picture as an example. Take your own conclusions.

Whoever was the cunt that made that car bomb threat, I hope he is found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. These threats help neither side.

And speaking of Leigh Alexander, have a compilation of saying from this SJW woman. Because if anyone can talk about ethics, it surely is she.

"Recently, as part of the anti-women #GamerGate campaign[2], a set of awful humans convinced Intel to terminate an advertising campaign because the site hosting the campaign had dared to suggest that the sexism present throughout the gaming industry might be a problem. Despite being awful humans, it is absolutely their right to request that a company choose to spend its money in a different way."

And this is a typical mouthpiece of SJWs. Stay classy.

Calling a removal of an ad censorship. Welp, I've seen it all now.

A friendly reminder of what censorship is according to wikipedia:

"Censorship is the suppression of speech, public communication or other information which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, politically incorrect or inconvenient as determined by governments, media outlets, authorities or other such entities."

I see the article hasn't been pulled. I see nobody has been silenced, no articles pulled, no speech stiffled. In fact, I don't think they teach removing adverts as censorship in any law school in the known universe.

I think Beamer means the censorship Zoe Quinn done by DMCAing Mundane Matt's video at the start of Gamergate. Or reddit banning pro-Gamergate discussions. Or 4chan. Or even Gamasutra and RPS and Polygon banning comments about gamergate which wouldn't be cesorship since they're privately owned sites but it sure as hell it fits the description better than Beamer's diseased use of the word.

Stop being intellectual dishonest Beamer.

Some people here will preach about misogyny and that gamergate isn't working and isn't about ethics.

Intel apparently doesn't agree with these white male oppressed misologists and damn good for Intel.

I don't know, the more gameplay I watch the more I think it's just a glorified Civ 5 mod rather than a successor to Alpha Centauri. Hope I'm mistaken though.
