About

Oppressed GamerGater is an image macro series featuring a photograph of a screaming child captioned with various commentaries relating to the video game journalism ethics controversy. The character was initially born to mock those who stand at odds with female video game developers in the wake of Zoe Quinn's affairs controversy and events that unfolded thereafter, sometimes referred to pro-GamerGaters, but it soon became re-appropriated by the aforementioned camp into mocking the viewpoints and stances expressed by the anti-GamerGaters.

Origin

The advice animal character was born during the GamerGate controversy. On October 9th, 2014, Twitter user Spacekatgal[4] posted the first instance of the image macro series Oppressed GamerGater to criticize the GamerGate community. Including the image series of a child from one of the PowerPoint template[3].

"The child featured in the image macro was originally from a Microsoft PowerPoint template for Autism Speaks."
I find it so hypocritical that the SJW/anti-GG crowd say they fight for equality, but are so willing to mock autism. Because we all know that everyone should be treated with respect, except those with neurodevelopmental disorders. I suppose it shows how full of shit some of them are.

Also, I think this should be made a sub-entry of GamerGate.
