The #notyourshield hashtag

Okay, this hashtag has its roots in the Quinnspiracy/Gamergate debacle, as a way for minorities to speak up against this, as well as tell gaming journalists to stop using minorities/women as a means of deflecting the issue at large. It originated in this particular thread. I will quote the conversation;

WHO /MINORITY/ HERE? I’m like 2/3 of the things these faggots say they are fighting for, and when I engage them on Twitter (WITH MY FUCKING PERSONAL ACCOUNT) they ignore me. Jesus Christ this is getting frustrating, I might as well be a white male for these faggots.”

“Something like
>#NotYourShield
And demand the SJWs stop using you as a shield to deflect genuine criticism”

Currently, it is having a great effect on Twitter and tumblr, and I felt that it deserves an article for extra visibility.

As much as I hate hashtag articles, I felt that this one could use the KYM oomph.

And I want SJWs to suffer trying to comprehend this.

Here is an article at One Angry Gamer discussing the hashtag.

This is awesome and has gained some pretty significant ground already. I think it deserves an article.

I’m bi, trans mtf and half puerto rican and I totally 100% believe that this deserves it’s own entry. Why? Cause SJW have been pulling this crud for years. To them glbt and minorities are nothing more than their meat shield to prevent them from themselves from being criticized.

There currently is a section added about it in the Gamersgate entry, but if you believe there’s notable spread that goes outside of the Gamersgate event, then sure give it a seperate entry.
