I didn't know what to name my Tumblr but then I was like, "What about a combination of some of my favorite things?" and then I named it this.

Question 1: Does Your Cause Require an Elaborate Conspiracy Theory to Be True?









For instance, let’s say there’s a movement called #GamerGate, about irate gamers protesting the lack of ethics in gaming journalism. OK, sounds like a good, simple cause. Now, let’s say the specific ethical breach that enraged them is about a feminist indie game designer who a bunch…

Except that this woman fucking admitted to doing what she was accused of, and TWICE shut down an organization designed to get women into the gaming industry.

Fuck you, Cracked.

She admitted she had sex with a journalist. That doesn’t mean there’s some great conspiracy to force feminism into games.

And of course, Fine Young Cannibals is a bullshit  org. They’re asking for women to give creative input for free for the chance  of their game of getting made, but also, exclude trans women, and when talking about politics in any way, it is clear they have no clue about what faminism is.

I would highly suggest you, you know, read the article, especially the part where they talk about the  IRC logs from the 4chan raid chatroom, and then fucking come say with a straight face that it’s about “journalistic ethics” or wahtever bullshit you think this is about. Except you don’t, when you’re using Zoe’s personal sex life as an argument, which means you consider airing people’s laundry a valid topic of discussion.

You fail right from the first sentence. She fucked five journalists in exchange for good reviews. She slept her way to the top, cheating on her then-boyfriend in the process, and we all know that if a man did the same, he’d be blasted RELENTLESSLY from all sides. And game “journalists” are defending her like the fucking clowns they are. That’s what this is about.

Hey, actually, let’s play a little game here: Let’s replace Zoe with JonTron and the five guys with five women, hm? See if you still want to play the defense then. No, of course you wouldn’t, he’d be Satan’s neckbearded anus, the bastard spawn of Hitler and Lord English, a fat nasty manchild trash heap who deserves to be driven off the internet and lose his fucking bird.

And no, they actually did include trans women, which was one of the major problems your darling hero Zoe had with it.


Ladies and gentlemen, someone who knows they have no valid rebuttal but wants to pretend they’re still totally right and their opposition is stupid garbage anyway.

Nah, because you don’t seem to grasp the basics of the whole thing. Having sex with people is not a crime, and there would very much not be an outcry if JonTron had slept with five women. I mean, an outcry of disbelief, because I don’t think the dude could hold a normal conversation with one woman.

The fact that people are distributing naked pictures of Zoe Quinn and talking in lenght about the smell of her vagina and how they want her to choke on dicks or whatever (half the content on #burgerandfries), is not a fucking reasonable reaction to “corrupton in gaming journalism”.

There’s plenty of records showing how 4chan was co-ordinating a three pronged strategy, with /v/ consern trolling about journalistic integrity, /pol/ making up bullshit about politics, and /b/ dedicated to personal harassment, gaslighting and trying to get her suicidal.

"But I want to focus on heresy and the strawmen I’ve made around it to protect my bullshit stance. Also I’m only going to focus on things I want to and not on things that don’t matter to me (aka trans inclusions and FYC being a bullshit scam)."

lol this guy doesn’t even know what he’s talking about.

everyone you’ve ever loved has said some problematic shit: a novel 

you have also said some problematic shit: the sequel

having said problematic shit does not necessarily make you or anyone else a bad person, just be aware of it, don’t say it again, and don’t make fucking excuses for people who continue to say problematic shit: the thrilling conclusion
