    These people don't understand that criticising a religion isn't discrimination, they also seem to forget Hitchens was against pretty much all religions

    zoe quinn is currently trying to get the industry to blacklist brad wardell.

    bro team pretty much sums it up

    fucking please just smash my brain now Zoe is demanding that her followers harass someone out of the industry how hwoisajihowhowhow howioasa
    apparently brad hired or is hiring? an artist that supposedly made cartoon porn of zoe quinn or something. the details are sketchy and i don't even know what artist theyre talking about. jim stirling is also on zoe's side trying to spread the word.

    It pisses me off that she is trying to attack an artist for that when she had no qualms about retweeting an edited comic porn of Jontron.

    Hypocrisy at it's worst.

    This reminds me of that stupid kerfuffle about the sexist "draw Harley in _____ situation". The drawing test clearly was made to determine the artist's boundaries, and their ability to convey such a scene which they may agree or disagree with.

    there's a lot of information coming in now that this may be some sort of weird false flag brad is unaware of.

    the artist he employed that made the zoe quinn "porn" (its a satirical three-panel comic strip where zoe bites a journo's dick) made the comic for a strip called "shredded moose". they went to brad saying that they worked on this comic. however, the original owners of shredded moose left, because the current artist is a loon, with the pseudonym "brew smith", aka "Stiles"

    brew smith is on-and-off friends with zoe quinn.

    some excerpts from 8chan:

    Hang on

    Has ZQ mistaken the identity of the comic trans person who drew the actual bj pic?
    ZQ, and probably most people, thinks that the person doing Shredded Moose is the ORIGINAL person doing Shredded Moose. (Or maybe ZQ is IN on the joke, who knows.)

    The person doing SM is NOT the original person. Instead, it's some weird tranny who saw SM as some brilliant parody of frat dudes. They make "Pro-GG" comics (that also happen to be easily edited and make very weak points) and SIMULTANEOUSLY send anti-gg edits OF THEIR OWN COMIC to anti-gg people to suck up to them.
    i don't fucking know.

    (also the fact that this person is trans is really unimportant and all the "weird tranny" things are harmful, but there's a copy/paste for you)

    Edited:

    also all the stuff about that one dev that wants to withhold keys of their shitty game from gamergate supporters

    He hasn't been out in the community so long. Regardless of the identity you belong to, you're still bound to be insulted. It doesn't matter if they called you a special word or griefed you, it's still intended to be negative. It's worth noting that it can be applied to children in gaming too.

    Everyone receives it constantly in the FGC, but I never attributed it to my race or gender.

    I know that not only the most privileged people say those things- I also know that Gamergate is incredibly diverse. But the more offensive (or 'offensive' in some instances) things we say, the less likely we are to win neutral people over- especially those who stand for social justice but have also done research. If I hadn't been on Facepunch, I would almost certainly be anti-GG because of the huge media slant against it. We have to stay vigilant and police ourselves a little bit because every slip-up we make is a huge piece of ammunition to be used against us. If we make the genuine social justice people aware that Gamergate is not a hate movement, then we will have actually achieved something- something that's pretty big- by separating a good chunk of slacktivists from the people who actually care.

    Edited:

    I try to stay relatively neutral in contentious issues (Ferguson probably being the biggest example right now) until I can get my hands on reliable information. With Gamergate, I've been utterly flooded. I'm not ashamed to admit that I support the hashtag, and what it aims to achieve, 100%.

    That's been the case for years, these people will take any random insult and use it to drive a narrative of harassment no matter how insignificant it is. It happened with Sarkessian, it was prototyped by Jennifer Hepler, and it's used by nearly everyone who wants to build victim status now.

    As much as I hate language policing and think everyone should be the butt of jokes equally, in this kind of shit you have to be attentive just so they don't use it to drown out any actual messages you have. This is still an argument of rhetoric and their moral high-ground bullshit needs to be overcome.

    Evidence article on wikipedia heats up as arbitration accuses anti-gg of using "buzzwords" and "all sides have long-term editors who are involved in the situation."
    Most likely case is, it will be rewritten by a completely uninvolved wikiproject.

    Also some doxxing done on the page, done by both "gg" and "anti-gg"


    It's becoming blatantly obvious that the editors on both sides are way too heavily involved into the page for reasons beyond making wikipedia more neutral - but rather to push their own political ends.

    Still rather relevant. Sterling claims to be an adamantium mountain in regards to his beliefs, his history shows he will waffle or reverse at any opportunity.

    Is this someone you can trust to stand as advocate of what is right?

    His "all heterosexual men are inherently rapey" stance probably isn't helping either.

    Edited:

    It can head that direction. There's a distinct reason places like CGhub and VA make you check your politics and religion at the door, and it's a good reason.
