GaymerX? Really? Is there any sexual/racial problem in gaming that needs to be addressed? Where is HeteRox, the political lobby group about hetero rock musicians, or AfriGame about African American gamers or... *sighs* Really, guys, there are more important groups that need every single buck to fight starvation, diseases, and the Starbuckisation of once great coffee. Well, alright, maybe the last one does not need the money.

Actually, you're missing the point. The point is that, had this been a "singles con" or somesuch, when a backer reneged on their donation, you'd have to suck up the loss and soldier on. In this case, you can call up a friend who works for a gaming magazine and accuse the company of being anti-gay (based on nothing but your anger), which means that everyone will then fall all over each other in a desperate attempt to see who can curry more favor (so as to escape the dreaded calumny of being labeled homophobic). And the money to pay your bar tab comes rolling in. It's tactical genius!
