Holy shit, it’s been a long time since I had anything to say. And what finally breaks my silence? #Gamergate
My response to it?
Yeah, I think that just about does it.
“Journalistic integrity and ethics” my skinny arse!
Why doth I thinketh so? Let’s see … hmmm … how about this little gem “It’s not about hating women, you stupid cunt!” is one that happened along somewhere in there, and it was certainly my favourite.
There was a really great comic I saw awhile back, but now I forget who did it so I can’t link to it, but it was a brilliant bit about how little the game journalism even mentions women, women coders, etc. rather than just talking about … games. Reviewing games, etc. I mean even the tiny fraction of people making a decent point are kind of out in the cold on this one. I mean, sure, if they were concentrating on how bogus Fox‘ stupid “news” shows are … fucking video tabloids, and HLN/CNN/MSNBC all them are not a whole lot better, really. But they’re not.
And come on people, really, you’re going to centre your arguments and movement around someone’s ex-fucking-boyfriend had to say about how her game suddenly got attention?!
Really, never go full retard, sweeties, it’s bad for your cause.
