Gamergate: the internet is the toughest game in town, if you’re playing as a woman.

It’s a stealth adventure with nowhere to hide and hundreds of respawning enemies waiting to attack you the moment you stand out in any way.

Oh look! Another anti-Gamersgate article from a liberal website. What a surprise!

Not just from them but in general.

Kotaku have just done one recently aswell. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of them are using that Google group to talk about what topics they will cover. Then you have others doing these articles for their own reasons, like stirring the pot and exploiting the situation in order to get some news out of it.

Funny how Kotaku post their article just after BMW pulls their advertising over this.

BMW pulling advertising just shows we're winning. They might not show it but I'm sure these corrupt journalists and websites are terrified of Gamersgate.

Anti gamergate now officially the most conformist topic after mysogony aka sex discrimination but in gamer journalism they have to use the "M" word in all kinds of awkward and incorrect ways or they won t be in the cool peoples club

It is like sheep, one after the other all saying the same marrow minded junk that makes absolutely no sense

Isn t this a trope in and of itself- hero journalist pens another anti gamer gate article to come to the pseudo defense of the fairer sex against a bogeyman made up by the same journo s writing about them.

Oh Charlie...you're better then this

During online gaming women are treated and/or bullied no differently than when men are playing. Difference being men are expected to "man up." Women wanted to be treated equally, we dropped some of our courtesies towards you, treated no differently, and we're now mysogynistic.

FullmetalRoyale1184d ago

If you are acting like a jerk online it doesn't make you "mysogynistic", it makes you a jerk.

Not YOU, I mean people in general.

BrandanT1183d ago

I do agree with you, a lot of people are jerks on the internet but, those jerks aren't treating women differently. They're merely finding differences that could be used to bully people. If your difference is being a women then that's what they use to pick on you. If they find out that your fat, they use that against you.

I'm sorry if my logic brings any misunderstandings.

At least 5 very critical people reading this article and not one person approved.

The article does not in anyway break the editorial code of this site but challenges the gamergate rape/murder threat campaign so one must assume those who've commented but haven't approved must support that movements tactics.

Fancy that?

What the hell are you talking about?

People are critical because it's yet another article generalizing the situation and putting forth a false image of things for others to see. Like all the other sites, they're intentionally muddying the waters so people that AREN'T aware of what gamergate is get the wrong idea.

Do you know what gamergate is about?

Do you know how this article's definition is different?

Then you should understand why people commenting are critical of it.

Nevermind.
