The seventh should be community drama, and I want to call it pedophile drama, but I don't remember the exact details. I might be blurring something together with paywall mods though.

I still don't really know what Gamergate was. Tried to find out a few times, but it just gets too stupid after a couple of sentence on Wikipedia or something.

This is absolutely NOT an invitation to tell me about Gamergate. I'm happy in my ignorance.

Without getting into details, it's just yet another version of "a woman did a thing in a traditionally male space."

Nothing beats Shine's explanation: "Girls are playing games and gave cooties to Megaman!" or words to that effect.

e: Wait, it was "Girls have cooties and they infected Megaman!"

IIRC it started with Zoe Quinn’s ex-boyfriend accusing her of sleeping with games journalists in exchange for good reviews of her game and she(and anyone who defended her) started getting harassed by Chuds. Hence their slogan “It’s about ethics in games journalism”. Then Anita Sarkeesian successfully funded a “Tropes vs Women in Video games” series on her YouTube channel and some people thought they weren’t good enough for the money she was given.
That’s basically everything I know about it. Basically it’s just misogynists being misogynist. Unsurprisingly the Venn diagram of Gamergaters and the Alt right is pretty much a circle.

The funniest part about gamergate was Candace Owens building a doxing platform and Quinn telling her it was a bad idea. When poo poo started falling apart for Owens she blamed Quinn and became a Nazi.

You don't have to 8e a good person to 8e a hero.


Gamergate was literally started because Zoe Quinn allegedly cucked her ex.

Ironically, gamergaters love throwing that term out like confetti.

It’s like that butterfly meme of a 15-year-old motioning at a man loving his partner and saying “is this a simp?”, but that teenager is in his early 30s and still lives in his mom’s basement.

Gamergate is very stupid, but it's pretty important to understand because it solidified the Alt Right as a political movement.

Unfortunate but true. It's going to go down in history as a deceptively important flash point in why poo poo like "President Trump" is a term we have to say unironically.

Oh, not in the mould of Xth wave feminism, I'm talking about people who are implicitly antifeminist but who masquerade as feminists using an anti porn platform - kinda like TERFs who claim to be feminists but who use arguments like "transwomen aren't women because giving birth is the defining factor of womanhood."
