mindsnot asked: I can't help wondering how the fuck these gamergate people are real. I just...who the are these fucking gremlins? I don't WANT to meet one--god no--but at this point, I have a morbid curiosity to observe whatever real-life humans actually live entire lives and yet be so ugly and fucked-up.

I honestly think they’re mostly very young. Men’s Rights Activists too. They learn the language of civil rights and activism, and apply it to their emotions. RE: Anything that hurts my feelings is actually depriving me of my rights (which it isn’t.) They despise others (women, minorities) for claims of victim-hood because they don’t like feeling accused of perpetuating inequality, but they also see the effectiveness of crying foul, so they invert it. They create their own minority group: Women don’t want to fuck me, so I’m a victim. The women criticize the games I play, so they’re fascists. If they were a real anti-corruption movement, they’d stop, re-brand, and focus their attention on corporate meddling in blockbuster games coverage, and nothing revolving around what vaginas do or say ever again.

Or to put it more bluntly: Gamergate expects me to believe people get into games journalism for all that sweet game developer pussy you get for giving their indy game a metacritic bump. Fucking ridiculous.

GG supporters: You want to save ‘gamer’ culture? Stop firing into your own goddamn camp you creepos.

(BTW, I understand your desire to meet one irl. That’s your power of empathy talking. The fact that you hear it, means you’re leaps and bounds better than they are.)

Gamer gate is about gaming journalism you dingus; using sex to get better reviews for shit tier games or any other form of media is dishonest and hurts the culture is has nothing to do with sex. 


But that didn’t actually happen

Anonymous asked: Hello! Would you be interested in appearing in a streamed discussion between pro-gamergate supporters and anti-gamergate supporters? The stream will be held in google hangouts. We will have a moderator so that nobody is interrupted and we can have a civil discussion. You can be anonymous if you want to. If you're interested contact me on ustioairforce0 at gmail or @ustioairforce on twitter. You can bring along another anti-GG supporter since I want to have multiple people from both sides.

Maybe if this wasn’t an anon I’d be interested. Internet anonymity is part of the whole issue, isn’t it? By the way, the other side to the GG debate is literally the rest of us. Some are just more vocal than others. Nobody is ‘for’ corruption in video games. We just don’t believe that’s what’s actually being talked about here.

lol “misandry exists”.

Being blamed for all of misandry would hurt but uh… considering the source, I think I’ll live. Remember, when you debate with a stranger make sure you end by calling them stupid. That’s how you really know you’re right.

The only part of the conversation I removed was a link they sent me to a site giving the history of gamergate. As if reminding me that the movement started by people caring way too much about what a girl does with her vagina would change my mind somehow. No matter which way you cut it, this is all about the sexual exploits and political opinions of women in the games industry.

gingerbeardthegeek asked: "Dear anyone"

abitoffunfirst:

Dear Anyone,

Do things that make you feel happy. Do things you love. Do things that are scary and exciting and that create love and beauty in the world. Love yourself, love others. Love cute little things and ugly little things and big dumb things and big huge gigantic things and all of those things that cause that light to burn brightly inside of you. Love those things. Tell all of them you love them. Shout it or whisper it or speak it plainly, but tell those things that you love them. Do things that are important, but make time for things that aren’t important too. Try being barefoot more often. Don’t deprive yourself from the foods and drinks that make the corners of your mouth turn up in that little orgasmic smile. Cry a lot. Do something your parent’s probably wouldn’t fully approve of. Tell someone a secret you’ve held onto. Make art. Any kind. You’ll do good, I promise. I love you.

<3

When your besto says some inspirational shit you have to reblog it, right?

cognitivedissonance:

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

If this post gives you the urge to unfollow me, act on it. I’m not fucking around anymore.

We are not one person. How lonely that would be: a couple who has made themselves one so completely that they are once again alone. We are two people. Separate. Unique. We are joined only where we choose to be joined. — Cecil Baldwin
