genocideheroaml: If John Oliver reports on #GamerGate, what do you expect to happen? Do you think it would help or hurt the cause? Or is just letting people know to form their own opinions good enough?
As with all issues that require thought, I feel Oliver will completely miss the point, and focus on the non-relevant.
He does this all the fucking time.
ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
I still like him, but I can’t watch him when he goes off on these kind of issues.
Anonymous: Who's sympathetic to our cause? The desire for transparency in the gaming media. We as the gaming community are working on policing ourselves, trying to pick out the bad apples but it's going to be next to impossible to be rid of them all... But attacking all of us sure as hell isn't helping to deescalate things. Some of us like me support both feminism and the gaming community and trust me when I say that what you're doing is not the best way to do it. This is just humiliating to watch overall
You are right, gamers are trying to police their own…but that is very hard to do when the games media has been trying so hard to vilify every single one of us as something we’re not.
You may disapprove of my tactics (which is odd, because all I’ve done is say “Hey lets talk about this!” “Don’t dox or harass anyone!”, and things like that), but give no suggestion as to what you’d do otherwise.
We are asking for transparency. That’s it….well that an to not be referred to as terrorists. But hey, one battle at a time amirite?
scttydsntknw85: Hey Matt, We have seen some celebrities weigh in on this issue about gaming and I (being the optimist I am) think that they just read the first "article" they come across and then stop there. They then jump on the band wagon and start supporting them. Do you think any of these people would change their views if they would just look past some of these click bait "sources" and do some research?
I think that they might change one or two of their views, but none of that would take away their stance as a whole. They are looking at the harassment over the reason for the argument.
Low hanging fruit…that’s all it is.
