#GamerGate exposed - the corruption of TheFineYoungCapitalists

tehrebound:

cathodedebris:

There is a corruption at the centre of #GamerGate - an alliance of manipulation intended to reap financial benefits.

This has NOTHING to do with Zoe Quinn or any of #GamerGate’s secondary targets. The corruption lies within the heart of the #GamerGate movement itself, and can be found with the…

So let’s review:

  • "Zoe Quinn had sex with game journalists in order to get positive reviews for her game" has been proven false, since a rudimentary Google search can show that in at least one case, no review or mention of the game was ever written.
  • "Zoe Quinn sabotaged TheFineYoungCapitalists!" Also false, as well as the above post that indicates that TFYC is a shell company wholly owned by Autobotika as a way to curry favor with #Gamergate in order to get money to produce games.

Y’all gotta understand that the crux of Gamergate, once you get past vagueties about “ethics in gaming journalism,” rested entirely on these two assertions being true. But they’re not.

So, arguments for greater oversight and more ethical contributions to gaming journalism aside, #Gamergate is, sadly, the latest in a worryingly long line of concerted efforts to shame/intimidate/scare women, non-binary folks, LGBTQIA+ individuals et al., from having a voice in gaming. From having the ability to create in gaming. And, even more sadly, they have successfully gotten Mattie Brice and Jenn Frank to throw in the proverbial towel. And Mattie and Jenn join a group of voices that should still be here but aren’t. And they probably will never come back.

If you want to be for ethics in game journalism, that’s great. I agree with you wholeheartedly. But don’t align yourself with Gamergate. Don’t be afraid to call yourself a feminist. Because the above two assertions are false and have been proven false for some time and yet HERE WE ARE SIX PLUS WEEKS LATER AND THIS INANE BULLSHIT HASN’T STOPPED.

Thank you. Have a great weekend! <3

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

He thought he was invincible

here’s the link to the article

at first i was like “dude he’s 15 that kinda sucks” but if you read the bottom paragraph there it says the livestreamer’s father was critically injured by the swat team responding to a murder/hostage situation so yeah the dude deserves to be in prison till he’s 40

I dont care how this guy is, what he did was stupid and even if nobody got hurt, I saw the livestream and Kootra had a shotgun pointed to his head. One slip up and we could have seen his death and brain everywhere.

Internet dickbags act like they’re invincible, it’s great that for once they suffer some consequences for the very real pain and suffering they’ve caused.
