Kotaku article with context..
Okay, I guess instead of being really behind on something, I'm gonna try step out forward. Prebuttal of some of the stupid rationalizing crap that's incoming.
1. "Dude has nothing to do with #GamerGate."
You keep believing what you want, but there's 8chan chat logs being investigated right now that prove you wrong. Regardless, not even really fucking relevant because of...
2. "You're generalizing. #GamerGate has legit complaints, and you're painting it all with a broad brush."
No. Wrong. You want to talk about ethics in games journalism, there's other venues. If this isn't actually about harassing women, use #GameEthics and prove it. That's right, use Zoe Quinn's suggested hashtag, prove that you care more about your actual ethics complaints than you do about letting some woman you don't know "win".
#GamerGate is fake. You may have legit concerns, but that hashtag is fake. Chat logs have shown a coordinated plan to use it as cover to continue harassing women. More importantly, the content itself - how long do you need to wait before a new "woe is me, the white male of
liberal social justice fascism" tweet? That is not a legit concern, criticism, or any fucking thing else. That is totally enabling bullshit that helps feed the paranoid martyr-delusions of the sociopath that went after @Spacekatgal.
Because there are crazy fucks out there. Crazy fucks who threaten to murder-rape people and their families. And include their actual home addresses in the threats.
For serious here. @chatterwhiteman? Look at that fucking handle. This is a fucking nutjob we're looking at. Actually crazy. And motivated by all the "persecution" he's suffering. Stop fucking feeding him and all the other "persecuted" sociopaths. Even if you do have legit complaints, all it is doing at this point is making crazy people think that they're justified in making credible death threats - and who the fuck knows what else.
