I think that the Twitter hash tag "GamerGate" is necessary for this industry to move forward in ethics. And anyone who opposes it based off of anti-GamerGate propaganda that says "GamerGate is for the harassment of women in the industry" is simply mis-informed.

#GamerGate people are not ethic crusaders; they are a hate group.


Zoe Quinn, Founder of GamerGate:

Zoe Quinn experienced something called the internet. On the internet there are people who get to speak freely. Sometimes this is beneficial, and sometimes it isn't. Zoe Quinn is not the first to recieve threats on the internet, so why make a big deal over it? Because she was a women. It gave them a chance to start a movement, that is funded regularly by multiple companies. Zoe Quinn, the reason for the start of GamerGate is possibly the most corrupt game develepor out there. The one leader of the movement, was found to be participating in a sex scandel with multiple journalists. How can we as a people have a movement which started by a corrupt female?



Anita Sarkeesian, Owner of FeministFrequency:

She actually only posts videos of her pointing out things wrong about video games, yet she gets respected. She says instead of mario saving a princess, a women should save a man. Which then we would have the exact same problem just vice versa, but men wouldn't care. She manages to take every problem and blames men for it.



The GamerGate community is taking a small issue and making hundreds of thousands of dollars from it. They spread their hate and controversy everywhere they go.

I'm gonna respond to your previous statement so here goes. It honestly seems like you would be happy in the #GamerGate camp, mainly because people like Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn are actually anti-GamerGate. I don't know why you would think that Zoe Quinn is the "founder of gamergate" you probably just misinterpreted the information. But what happened is that she slept with 5 reviewers for good press. And this was sort of the straw that broke the camels back. Because millions of gamers got up in arms about this and that spawned the hashtag GamerGate. People like Anita Sarkeesian have done everything they can to demonize GamerGate and make it look like a hate group. So to sum it up, Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn are totally against gamergate (mainly because GamerGate exposes them for the fruads they are) so welcome to GamerGate!

I might go con, but my gaming life is a thing of the past. Cant strive under that self indulging environment :(. Its all subjective though. So Probably not, at any case, good luck finding a good opponent, pro.

Not necessarily. Some people refuses to identify with an uncontrolled movement, let alone aligning themselves with a bunch of youtube vloggers who's sole purpose is to stroke their narcissistic complex. I would argue both sides, Gamergate and modern liberal feminism as complete and utter rubbish. Good luck though whoever debates this. definitely an interesting topic.
