Why couldn’t it be “Freddy FOZbear”, and he just peeks in the door, wiggles his ears, and goes,

"WOCKA WOCKA WOCKA!"?

it was a “”“”“scandal”“”“”“”“” about gaming journalism and news that was just a Big Excuse to rip into women in games, in particular, zoe quinn, maker of indie game depression quest.

instead of actually being about any valid criticisms of the way games news works (like companies paying for content, misogynistic reviewers blah blah) it was a smear campaign against quinn claiming she “”“”“used sex”“”’” to get everything she had in her career and harassing her family and friends, death threats and all the regular 4chan flavoured sexual filth. (i think sarkeesian was probably also involved because whenever anything happens to gamer turds they’re like ‘shit when was the last time we tried to fuck up sarkeesian’s life? two days ago? damn it’s probably time for another go’)

there are a few related post in my #gaming tag and this cracked article is p good. with anything related to this take care bc there’s mention of #rape and #suicide and violence and all kinds of nasty

My take on the situation is that it was a private situation that got dragged into the public wrongly.

I don’t care for what Quinn did, but how it’s been treated is fucking awful.
By which I mean, the one journalist she slept with had done a piece mentioning her once and somehow this means that all journalistic integrity he may have had was suddenly destroyed, and it was seen as horrible and a problem that she should be worried about the consequences of stuff going public.

Fucking hell this is such a dumb response to a private matter

ding dong u are wrong

none of this was ever about journalistic integrity and it was ‘dragged into the public’ (see: deliberately created and spread) to attempt to destroy the career and possibly life of a woman bc she had the audacity to exist in a space that dudebros want to be solely entitled to

kotaku article debunking the claim that she had sex with a journalist in return for positive reviews

4channers and various assholes in IRC artificially manufacturing the entire “”“”“”scandal”“”“””

More of those IRC logs, after people tried to claim that the first lot were cherrypicked and misrepresentative

there is not a single thing that quinn did “wrong” for you to not care for. she existed, and terrible little misogynists made up lies and a smear campaign because they hate women.

Funny, if you read what I said, I’m saying it was a private matter. I’m saying it got dragged into public wrongly. Whilst it did bring up the issue of journalistic bias, the reasons as to why were completely wrong and not even an issue in the first place.

I don’t really like what she did but it isn’t for me to have an opinion on, and my opinion of her as a person does not affect my view of her within the industry. It’s literally just a messy breakup that got taken public to satisfy her exes sense of vengeance.

#Indyref Glasgow Update 20 September 12:55AM:

Reports from friends in Glasgow say rioting has been contained to City Center area. Ongoing LIVE STREAM seems to have cooled down - much less police activity. Still seeing Tweets about racist abuse and about Buchanan…

sherlock-isbored:

Tumblr, can you please spread awareness of the riots currently breaking out in Glasgow city centre in George Square -
Union supporters have begun rioting in the city waving Union Jacks, saluting Nazis and attacking nationalists.
Absolutely nothing is being reported on BBC News, Sky News or ITV news! Spread the word!

Ravenclaw: Do it once you’ve gathered enough relevant information.
Hufflepuff: Do it with integrity.
Slytherin: Do it on your own terms.

Gryffindor: Do it for the vine.

To a small fringe of very backwards people who want to block access to sex education, make it impossible to get birth control, and ban abortion, Kazantsev’s background marked her as someone unworthy of public praise – let alone a crown. To the rest of the country, the overwhelming majority of the public, this is a Miss America we can get behind.

Eric Ferrero

Read the op-ed here.

Say you stand with Kira here.

(via ppaction)

Hours after being crowned Miss America, Kira Kazantsev was called a “slut,” “bitch,” “bimbo,” “crazy,” “dumb” and “retarded” on social media.  

What had this mind-bogglingly accomplished woman — Kazantsev, 23, speaks three languages, was a triple major in college, was accepted to one of the nation’s top law schools, and still finds time for public service — done to provoke this vitriol?  

She believes that everyone should have access to sex education and reproductive health care.  Kazantsev interned at her local Planned Parenthood affiliate last year, where she helped the staff provide sex education programs in public schools.

ponett:

honestly it’s kind of incredible that gamergate just continues to get stupider and stupider. i didn’t think that was possible

moot FINALLY stepped in and now gamergate threads are not allowed on 4chan anymore, because coordinating raids and doxxing and whatnot are against the rules…
