Why treat this like an attack solely on Women?
A human being's gender and profession really don't matter when it comes to death threats.
The threats and harassment should stop because they don't contribute anything positive and are criminal in nature.
On the other hand, why not have a serious discussion panel on video game journalism integrity and ethics? The harassment and threats and the ethics discussion don't seem mutually exclusive.
I doubt they'd do it, but Giantbomb should invite Totalbiscuit for a discussion on ethics and Gamergate or whatever it's called nowadays.
@patrickklepek has had TB on Bombin with the AM before, he was a great guest. I think you might be surprised as to how pro GG he actually is though. He has been incredibly critical of the movement in the past, as he has been with both sides of the argument. It bothers me that he is being held up as some kind of GG activist. He stays pretty neutral.
I don't see any side really interested in moderate voices right now. They just want the echo chambers to keep resonating and feeding their agendas.
