Today I get home from class. And I hear that gamergate is getting shit on. I leave for work knowing that people are trying to pin a school shooting threat on gamergate.
I get home to see #stopgamergate2014 trending on twitter. I see people trying to exploit every…
Maybe you should see why people are pissed at GamerGate and why that ship needs to scuttled ASAP.
Here it all is: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=134397896&postcount=12285 Like, please, give it up already. I know you think you’re doing good but this thing was never legitimate to start with
If you actually think Gamergate is about Anita or Zoe at this point, you’re a moron.
Or did you happen to miss the fact that it was proven that games journalists colluded together in a mailing list, discussing how to create a narrative?
Or did you miss the fact that another writer was proven to give favorable reviews and press to people she lived with (at best) or had sex with (at worst).
Or the 14 “gamers are dead” articles that were coordinated by the above mailing list?
Or the comparisons some individuals made between ISIS and gamergate.
Or the banning of Boogie from Neogaf for taking an even moderate, neutral stance on gamergate.
Or the doxxing, harassing and threatening of individuals like TotalBiscuit (who was and is having health concerns over cancer), King of Pol and Boogie.
Or the constant ignoring of the Notyourshield hashtag, which is filled with minorities, women and LGBT that support gamergate.
The blatant lack of oversight, overhead and transparency in the IGDA awards.
See. This is the problem. Because twits like you want to focus on Zoe and Anita because it helps push your narrative and tries to block out all the other shit that has come to light that makes Gamergate legitimate.
Not only that but so many of those examples are wrong or so laser focused that they are only correct in the most literal of terms. For example, the one about her honorable mention? Its true. Too bad that isn’t the fucking award everyone was pissed about. On her own steam greenlight Depression Quest is listed as “Official Selection - Indiecade”. Which is where she won a cash prize. She slept with one of the panel judges, Robin Arnott.
Furthermore, while Nathan did not write a Depression Quest review, he did mention Zoe Quinn and Depression Quest while the two were, at the very least, friends.
Fact of the matter is, you people are trying to make martyrs out of Zoe and Anita. Which is pretty dishonest because it ignores all the info that doesn’t include them, and gamergate hasn’t included them for almost 2 months now, and even when you try to the information is false.
This isn’t surprising, as Neogaf has repeatedly shown itself to be completely biased in this arrangement, banning people not only for being pro-gamergate, but even taking a neutral stance on it.
