#StopGamerGate2014

So I haven't checked, but apparently this is a trending tag on Twitter.

 

AND OMG GUYS IT'S ANITA WHOCARES SARKEESIAN

 

So A.S is claiming that the person who threatened her said they were affiliated with Gamer Gate.

OH AND IT GET'S EVEN BETTER!

ait a minute. So you're saying if I support something that YOU started that is more or less untrue, I'm a womanizer/harasser. Well, I guess I'm going to Juvie. Cya guys later!

 

Again I will refer to this glorious video:

 

I don't think death threats are appropriate, not at all. But both sides are getting ridiculous.

 

About halfway down the page is a torrent of tweets, some saying GG is cult that threatens death on it's critics, some just saying they don't want to be threatened. All over something that I'm going to say has a 50% chance of being a lie. 

 

Even if it is true that they claimed association with Gamer Gate, so what? They're a radical. I have a perfect example, but I better word it carefully. Sometimes Muslims are all thought to be terrorists. IDK about where you guys live, but sometimes in younger peoples minds that is a problem with people I meet where I live, from time to time. However, as we all know, this is not true. Most Muslims are fine, I actually used to be friends with some. The ones that associate themselves with terrorism are "radicals", much like the person who threatened death on A.S.

 

Again, if it's true

 

Now, obviously I'm a little "worked up" over this. Why you may ask? 

 

BECAUSE I'M TIRED OF GAMERS BEING MISREPRESENTED IN THE MEDIA, THAT'S WHY.

Gamergate, first coined by actor Adam Baldwin, is an amorphous campaign that is ostensibly about ethics in video game journalism and defending the "gamer" identity but has come under fire for its links to a wave of harassment, particularly of women, in gaming.

Now as we all know, the media is always kinda retarded and tends to warp things. Which means that when this comes up in the news, which I think it will, they will twist it out of proportion yet again to fight against gamers/videogames. Much like the Violent Videogames make you Violent thing.

 

Anyways, this whole thing has blown up. I'm afraid A.S couldn't stop it even if she wanted to.

 

I'm tired, I'll edit some more thoughts into it later.

People can play video games regardless of gender.

People need to stop with this sexist bullshit.

This entire thing has just been incredibly frustrating to sift through. Death threats are never ok, but it seems that Anita has been caught lying in the past regarding this sort of behaviour if I recall correctly (I think it was a thunderfoot video).

I would instantly say the logic behind stating "supporting gamergate supports misogyny (because of the supposed actions of a minority)" is immensely flawed.

The gamergate movement wants gaming journalism that isn't screwed over with bias.

Tea, Metal, and poorly written code.

People like this are stupid. I'm not being funny and sure a death threat is a serious thing but there's more important stuff going off, stuff that's more important than how women are portrayed in gaming. If they want to speak out about something then they should speak out about something that's worth speaking out about.

Gamers can be sexist. There will always be ***holes in communities.

I dont care what she said or who she is. What the people threatening her show is that the gaming community is a bad community. Yes we know there a lot of sour lemons in the gaming community however people need to get their acts together, cant be having this wave based blood feud of people trying to cut eachothers throats.

Quite a lot of information but the gist of it is gaming journalism has been caught in a back alley doing shady crap and promoting games of people they may have a personal connection to. Most notable example is Zoe Quinn and she's a whole other can of worms that would take long to get into.

This woman is Anita Sarkesian who had a successful kickstarter to make videos about why games are sexist. Despite the large sum of money she received, the videos are of a poor quality with not much research.

The gamergate movement began to gain momentum and ask for transparency in gaming journalism, however the concerns were dismissed as being just misogynistic.

There was also the issue of a lot of online gaming publications making the same article on the same day, about how gamers are dead or something.

Edit: I'll try finding a video or two that are probably better and more in depth

TL;DR.

 

GameGate is just a giant internet CF. Everyone needs to back away slowly and reorganize themselves. It's just a big mess, and what started as a debate on one thing, has spiraled into a typical internet bashing debate, that is fueling the wrong fires (wrong fires as in, death threats etc).

 

Just. Stop.

STOP. GIVING. ANITA. SARKEESIAN. ATTENTION.

 

This whole shit is to create a debate or problem which does not exist, it's like man-made global warming or viagra for women. A ground/market creation in which miss Sarkeesian can make non-sensical video's/products and make lots of money.

Just, ignore her to death. She won't change anything because game developers are not stupid. They won't do anything to anger the consumers which buy their games. 

 

And if tits and objectifying is your thing, there will always be japanese games.

Feminists are fucking annoying dude.

 

See, and this is why you need to stop talking about it. People are linking this misandy to feminism, potentially causing harm to any future feminism which IS a worthy cause. There are plenty of women's rights being violated across the globe on a daily basis, the fact that so much attention is going to this non-debate and it's being associated with feminism is a tragedy.

 

Honestly, just stop perpetuating this non-debate because the problem it's trying to create does not exist.

I didn't think too much of Anita until I looked at her followers.

I legitimately didn't think there were that many retarded people.

For the TLDR

And people will call this person misogynistic to try to debunk his arguments but they are purely relying on ad hominem.

@Xhavalor ,Both sides of the argument are retarded. You cannot have any legitimate arguments on a problem that does not exist. It's like two sides arguing over the existence of underpants gnomes. The people who deny it are called mysoginists, and the believers are called misandrists.

Can't you see you're all being used by Anita, on either side of the 'argument'. Any form of attention is bad, even all those theorists on Youtube who are meticulously deconstructing her arguments are just as bad to blame for her existence.

I was just providing TLDR for those unaware. I totally agree with you on Anita BUT

I still do believe we need to actively seek and rat out corrupt journalistic practices. Enough retards are eating all of it up, totally unaware, similar to those who do nothing but subscribe to one news outlet (such as BBC, FOX, AL JAZEERA) and are of consequence 'fed' information, leading to unwarranted bias. We cannot simply ignore these issues, because it has become so deeply entrenched within our societies (referring to all journalism, not just gaming). If we tell those already under the grips of these outlets to 'ignore' them, what will be the response? Probably a "why? What these outlets are propounding is correct and unbiased!". We constant action and exposure of these corrupt practices, not a few sparks here and there (similar to the current Chinese premier Xi Jing-ping claiming to be 'rooting out corruption' when really it is a program based on tokenism). 

And if the mods ban me for this post, then I know that LinusTechTips has also fallen to the grips of the snake. I want to help spread awareness of corruption not only in gaming journalism (which is somewhat of a joke now), but in all entities: government, media, corporate sector.

Remove corruption, become enlightened.
