Hey I’m back!!!

Has anyone missed me? Nope? Shit. well okay. 

I hope y’all have been well. Ive spent the last two hours reading more stuff on #GamerGate (if you support that feel free to unfollow me because HAHAHAHAHA you are dumb….and dangerous.) so my day has been going great. 

I just ask that you read my last reblog (i will also link the article here) it’s such an amazing piece that sums up everything about this whole “issue” 

Just a taste 

"The idea is that we’re all so equal now that true intolerance begins with even noting that anyone is different from the norm, said norm of course being a young, straight, middle-class white guy. To get to this mindset requires a certain willful blindness to privilege and the ways it has embedded itself in the very structures of American life”

Read and share! 

By design, Gamergate is nearly impossible to define. It refers, variously, to a set of incomprehensible Benghazi-type conspiracy theories about game developers and journalists; to a fairly broad group of gamers concerned with corruption in gaming journalism; to a somewhat narrower group of gamers who believe women should be punished for having sex; and, finally, to a small group of gamers conducting organized campaigns of stalking and harassment against women.
This ambiguity is useful, because it turns any discussion of this subject into a debate over semantics. Really, though, Gamergate is exactly what it appears to be: a relatively small and very loud group of video game enthusiasts who claim that their goal is to audit ethics in the gaming-industrial complex and who are instead defined by the campaigns of criminal harassment that some of them have carried out against several women.

On a side note; it’s funny how so many people are never satisfied with any level of gaming journalism ever. If a reviewer likes a mainstream, hyped up title, they are somehow being ‘paid off’ or influenced to say good things about it, but if a reviewer hates a relatively mainstream, hyped-title suddenly it’s just them wanting to be contrary or not seeing the good of the game or misunderstanding it. Confirmation bias is a helluva drug.
