Is Gamergate the ISIS of Ebolas?

Dude better hope he doesn't get swatted while wearing that. Police would shoot him on sight.

Jesus Christ, that title alone. What a whiny little shit.
If you're proudly claiming Adam Baldwin as a figurehead for your "movement," you need to step back and figure out where you fucked up your life.
They also have Brietbart, pinnacle of journalistic integrity, to worship as well.
This is what indoctrination truly looks like. People are trying to use GG to gain their own little fiefdom of celebrity and meager power ("Oooh! Let's send form e-mails to a site's sponsors!") or it's an excuse to lash out at everyone and everything that ever "wronged" them since the internet can't hit back.
It's also a sure bet none of these assholes have ever read any history of HUAC, blacklisting, etc. because they'd fit right in.

If nothing else, fuck these jerks for ruining FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES for me.
The FIVE GUYS thing is how Gamergate refers to the dudes that Zoe Quinn totally banged in exchange for good press coverage of her game I HAVE PROOF AND NO YOU CAN'T SEE IT.
I hate Gamergate because it's taking the GG designation from important things like Goldcorp, gigagrams, Guilty Gear, Gilbert Gottfriend, and Mr. Allin
I'm still fucking confused. As a former videogame journalist, there was no such thing as getting laid.

Look what video games have done to this man. YOUR son could be next. Or YOUR daughter. Warn your children!

Oh come on, the most Xtreme doritos he could find and coke bottles for explosives in his suicide vest were a nice touch.
I'm guessing this is a response to the latest Tumblr meme that Gamergate = ISIS, or ISIS > Gamergate, or everyone should join ISIS if they beheaded Gamergate depending on who you ask.
Which is why it's fucking stupid to base your entire opinion around cherry picking the worst fringe garbage from the other "side" because you're going to find insane crap no matter who you look at. But it's also the most efficient energy source for renewed yelling and shit flinging so people are going to keep doing it while acting like their "side" never has a disgusting streak.
You -do- threaten to rape and murder women for speaking without a man giving them permission.
And those of you that don't do it directly put out enough vitriol and bile against these women to incense the latter group.
And just so we're on the same page here...
Do you actually think people calling your little circlejerk "as bad" as ISIS, no matter how seriously, is just as bad as direct credible threats of rape and murder by multiple people against specific women?

I never thought I'd say this, but Nominal is right.
Instead of the criminals and thugs, let's concentrate on the mainstream of GamerGate, who, while not actually threatening women, are directly involved in an organized effort at using political power to purge the internet of dissenting opinions like the arrogant little fascist pieces of shit they really are.
Glad that you and I can see eye to eye for once, Nominal!

This whole line about the "vocal minority", and how most GG people are basically decent sidesteps the real issue.
The person in this video is a kid. He's not supposed to be smart. Thunderf00t, Harpo Baldwin, that bitch from the heritage foundation, anyone who is over 35 and associated with GG should burn in hell, but when I look honestly into my past, I might have pulled stupid shit like this when I was 20 to rid the world of disco.
But we don't really need to care if the GamerGaters are good people or not. It's none of our business. We don't even need to worry about if they're misogynist, though many of them certainly are. The only real debate is about how GamerGate effects every part of the culture that it touches, and that's why the focus on the criminal element is completely appropriate. It's having an impact.

This is by far the best article I've seen on GamerGate, and I've been following it so obsessively, I've even stopped paying attention to Boxxy. Just a pleasure to read.
