The irony is that by trying to dismiss the writer's claim or downplay the issue, they are proving that there is indeed a cultural issue that needs to be addressed.
Same thing is happening with this gamergate stuff.
I don't feel that your comment is fair. In gaming it goes more like 'This isnt fair in regards to women!' and men converge on the article to point out that perhaps she is not taking something into context or acknowledging other areas where that isnt the case. The author then segues into something about threats and the whole conversation goes off the rails, conveniently letting her escape dealing with any of those points.This comic sums it up nicely.
