YOU SICK FUCK
How were Schafer’s comments at all insulting? I mean yeah, he appeared in a half baked video on nonexistent privilege, but how the sock puppet thing getting GG upset?
Bonus ducks?! BONUS DUCKS ARE MY TRIGGER!!

I agree, Zim was grade A but… That show should not be broadcast on a kids’ station.
“Dead… dead… dead… Cadaver-ific!”
Reduced social skills, lower quality of life due to it, low stimulus threshold, and depending on where one lies on the spectrum, complete infirmity and need of lifelong personal care.
My sex life using an album title? Hmm…
Exactly. That proves that GG is NOT misogynist. It just seems to me that GG is incredibly hostile to people who accuse it of misogyny, when the accusers are most likely just misinformed. Moreover, defenses can often tend to be too much (e.g. "That’s bull. GG had done mountains for women in video gaming. [Three different examples of GG being not misogynist when one would have been enough]) or too little (e.g. “That’s bull. Fuck off SJW.”) There’s a major false persecution complex shared by both sides of the issue.

That’s a fair point. I haven’t been following this movement in a huge amount of depth. My criticism therein, however, is not that women are getting harassed in a sexist manner by any amount of gamergate members, for that can’t be helped. It was that rather than dealing with it, many GG’s choose to simply deflect the accusation of misogyny rather than counter it. As I explained, countering wouldn’t be hard, but I see people trying to collect $200 after skipping go; Asserting that GG isn’t misogynist because its purpose isn’t misogyny. Not only is that unattractive to a neutral party, it’s also a weak defense that shouldn’t be employed in your own interest.
I’ve found another person who doesn’t hate the revisions to the ’crons?! I thought I was the only one!
I’m guessing (correct me if I’m wrong) that you haven’t been playing WH40K for very long. Basically, what Ward did that makes people hate him so much is not the quality of his work itself, but rather the effect it had on the universe itself. For example, his additions to game rules made the game unbalanced AT FIRST, but as Codecies got updated the game returned to normal whereas before changes were more gradual. He also made the Space Marines kiss the Ultramarine’s chapter’s ass, which was a HUGE middle finger to the tone of the series, as even being badass warriors SM’s are supposed to be flawed and Ultramarines (and to a lesser extent, Grey Knights) being “ideal” is very out of place as well as stupid in a universe designed with the express purpose of being as miserable and unideal as possible. Also, Dreadknights make Jesus cry.
I’ve seen several. There is a depressing fuckton.
Well many (Albeit nowhere near a majority of) GG supporters have taken to harassing every feminist and SJ advocate of any kind. Their companions generally do the correct and mature thing, and put themselves above that behavior on the grounds that it’s not what GG is about, as well as fuckin’ rude. However, they practically ignore such miscreancy and downplay it, asserting that GG is about ethics, et cetera, et cetera, rather than address the issue and allow it the simple solution “They may be GG supporters, but what they’re doing is wrong.” Instead, all I see is “It’s not about misogyny, it’s about ethics in gaming journalism!” As if the fact that you’re not a foaming mouthed misogynist is enough to negate the existence of the ones that are soiling your reputation. I guess my problem is not the harassment and more the response to the harassment. Women ARE getting harassed because of GamerGate. It’s your job to make sure that stuff isn’t tolerated. You don’t have to get pitchforks and torches and chase GG’s fractional population of assorted crapsacks to a windmill, but at least give it a better response than “Muh sogyny? Doesn’t matter b/c journo ethics.”
The anti-GG side’s toxicity… Well, you’ve seen it. Truckloads of ableism, hyperbole, lies, slander… I don’t think I need to explain that part to you.
With all the toxicity on either side of this issue, it’s almost as if you’re wrong for even having any opinion on GamerGate at all.
Wait… Does that count as an opinion? Darn it.
It’s really odd to see one associate all of Tumblr with these clowns. Like… Do people not realize how many literal Nazis are on tumblr? I’m not talking Goodwin’s law Nazis, I’m talking fascist racialist Nazis.
He’s just STANDing there… [Menacingly]
Already a thing.
Man, I could masturbate to ISIS before. Now it’s just less weird.
Shouldn’t it be “green power?”
