dashyn said: Yo, i saw that drawing of the robot and "sit down to talk about GamerGate" stuff. Would you actually like to do that? Just thinking it would be interesting if ya want. Free to keep the chatlogs and stuff, i dont care. I have Steam and Skype if that works, havent used Skype in ages so need to relearn how to use it.

No, I really wouldn’t. There is literally nothing to talk about. Gamer guys are egomaniacal pissbabies. Like, I’m scared of being on my deathbed with unfinished projects, or having my bike stolen because it’s my main method of transport, or running out of unemployment before I find another job. Y’know, real things. Them? They’re scared of journalism. Scared of their own dirty laundry.

That’s the fucking definition of cowardice.

Gamers need to grow a backbone like, 10 years ago.

How about you shut your fucking mouth because GamerGate is fighting  Corrupt Journalism from sites like kotaku and RPS. All of you fucking SJW’s are stupid thinking that all girls are innocent and all men are fucking evil. HOW ABOUT YOU KISS MY FUCKING ASS FOR HAVING THAT STUPID FUCKING MINDSET. A fucking girl didn’t want to be my friend anymore and i almost fucking committed suicide OVER HER. And the thing is that you fucking SJW’s will think she is all innocent even though she almost committed manslaughter. And that is really insulting.

P.S: Gamers also have jobs and shit and they are defending their video games from you SJW degenerates and your stupid agenda of killing all men. And gamers are not homophobic. Me, along with a few LGBT people support gamergate

P.S.S: Even Marceline is laughing at your stupidity.image

"she almost committed manslaughter"

Dear carlossalas81

Hi, I’m a dude. I know what it’s like to have your heart broken by a girl who wasn’t interested in you, even though you know in your heart you did everything you were told was right in order to make it work. I’ve felt that pain, I remember it, it’s terrible. It’s not always your fault though, sometimes it just wasn’t meant to be. Eventually you realize this and move on.

But I want you to know that you deserve that pain. It is your fault, and your reaction is even more pathetic. There is zero mystery why this girl would want nothing to do with you, and the further this girl gets away from you, the better. I would pay for her restraining order if I could. The fact that you think you can blame the consequences of your horrendous shittiness on people standing up to concentrated threats of murder over god damned fucking video games shows just how little happiness you really deserve.

I don’t normally engage militantly ignorant absolute losers online, but using Marceline to attack my spouse and people like her, in defence of violent misogyny, is kinda like coming to my kingdom and using the flag to slap the Queen, son. Enjoy being alone forever, you’ve truly earned it.

It’s amazing to me that people still become adults without understanding the difference between “[Person] did something that caused me pain” and “[Person] attacked me!”

Just because someone didn’t want you in their life doesn’t mean they committed a crime against you. They made a decision for their own wellbeing. It sucks that it caused you pain, but deal with it like an adult; stop blaming other people. No one owes you their time and attention. It belongs to them, and they will share it or not as they see fit. 

If you’re unhappy about being alone, stop

a) acting as though women’s time and attention are something you’re entitled to. It’s bullshit and it makes you demonize people who are just trying to live their lives.

b) hanging around online spaces where other people do this. MRAs, PUAs, GamerGaters, seriously, just step away from all that, reset your head, and become an adult who isn’t choking on his own resentment.

How reintroducing wolves into Yosemite Park changed the course of rivers. I’m filing this under “Extremely interesting” since it implies a lot about the effects of dragon slaying and other putatively heroic behaviors.

Authors with six-figure incomes

Authors with six-figure incomes

Twenty years ago, Donald Maass interviewed authors to find out who had six-figure incomes, and what they had in common. What did he discover?

No conventions. Hear that? They don't attend many conventions

This is something that I’m going to be addressing to many prominent anti-SJW bloggers here on Tumblr, including poppypicklesticks, nobszone, thespectacularspider-girl, endgaem, and others, but more generally this is to basically everyone who keeps pressing these bullshit conspiracy…

"I now believe the most dangerous time for a woman with online visibility is the point at which others are seen to be listening, “following”, “liking”, “favoriting”, retweeting. In other words, the point at which her readers have (in the troll’s mind) “drunk the Koolaid”. Apparently, that just can’t be allowed. From the hater’s POV, you (the Koolaid server) do not “deserve” that attention. You are “stealing” an audience. From their angry, frustrated point of view, the idea that others listen to you is insanity."

Why #gamergate is important

Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly. 
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.
