i feel like Jeff did an excellent response to all this fucking gamer bullshit but i really really really feel uncomfortable with the idea that speaking out is the wrong thing to do.
never speaking out on how fucking toxic and misogynistic (as well as other things) gamer culture is has allowed it to become this. it will always happen UNLESS people take a stand.
either way. a united front against the 'gamer' identity is nothing but a good thing.
there is a goddamn good reason i stopped self-identifying as a gamer around 2007 and i hope this causes others to do the same.
also: gamergate was, is, and never will be concerned with ethics in anything ever ever ever ever.
