"How Zoe Quinn capitalized on Gamergate and lived to take in Patreon bux."

That would more be that Canadian professor Jordan whatever. All he does is whine about identity politics, and makes an estimated $60,000 per month on Patreon to do so. $60,000 per month! I'll whine about whatever people want me to for $60,000 per month.

That guy didn't really do anything wrong or even controversial. He just refused to use some weird gender identification tag for some special snowflake on campus. Not like there is a lack of complete fucking morons on campus right now, U of T is one of the worst for ridiculous student politics. I'm actually glad to see some push back from people on that shit, it was getting stupid fast. I'm sorry you want to identify yourself as a "Xe" but we still need something recognizable to put on your passport and your prof can't be expected to memorize these idiotic things for your whole student body.

I don't know why people are going to give him money for showing some common sense but hey good for him.

If you pay attention to the interviews he gives, he's incredibly self-righteous about things that don't impact him at all. Plus, he gave a very bad read to a law that's about harassment.

I think that guy came on the scene long after Gamergate died down. I hadn't heard of him until last year. He's more of an invention of the Trumpian green frog brigade. Makes sense, considering the Trumpsters are the right wing version of SJWs, with all the trimmings. Patreon VictimBux, identity politics, claiming that every accurate depiction of them is a strawman, etc.

That's the worst thing to come out of identity politics: The right discovering that it works better for them than it does for the left. They can make more money, and actually get people elected. There's never going to be some absurd SJW lefty who is going to pull a Trump and get elected despite being completely fucking incompetent. The strategy only works on the right because of the combination of identity politics AND majority voting power.

Sociologists recently have shown that conservative politics is almost directly related to fear and anger levels. Like liberals who are frightened swing right, conservatives who have their fear dissipated swing left in experiments. SJW kind of plays right into that.

The solution to the toxicity of identity politics surely isn't to add white identity politics to the mix.

Meh, that's chump change. Alex Jones makes $250K per month. Billo was making $1M per month until he got the ax.

On Patreon?!

If so, for all the whining about "SJWs" being suckered into Patreon, it's really the alt-right that's putting money there.

That other article on the video game whale is disturbing. He keeps saying "I invest in" as if hes buying shares in the company and not just dumping money down the drain. Also claims to be a DJ, it's Slick!

"How everyone from gamergate to game designers to game reporters to Zoe Quinn managed to prove that they are horrible examples of humanity and the games industry should be ashamed"

FTFM. The only thing that I got out of Gamergate is that the whole f*cking industry is scum, head to toe. Gamergate included.

What a worthless puff piece of an article, don't even waste your time reading it regardless of where you land on Zoe Quinn and that whole debacle.

Not sure why people are still interested in her. I am not sure why anyone was in the first place, but a group of gamers found her fascinating because they're shitheads, a group of people sympathized with her because she didn't deserve the attention of those shitheads, things spiraled, and 3 years later it's hopefully died down and not worth revisiting.

Except there are still some shitheads out there, but they're the same ones that run around calling themselves "deplorable" and thinking they're being ironic.

I think you mean "How Eron Gjoni turned a bunch of pillow-fucking whiners into his own personal break-up-tears harassment army."
