Hahaha, they are grasping at straws so desperately it’s hilarious.

remember when feminists threatened to bomb a MRA meet so it would get cancelled?

I guess pulling fire alarms and staging violent protests just wasn’t edgy enough

The situation is just intolerable. 
There have been a lot of really insightful write-ups recently. A broader perspective—and I almost cringe to say—catch-all by Molly Crabapple left me gasping for breath. This write up, by Elizabeth Sampat giving her thoughts on an industry that’s very dear to me, delivered the final blow and left me in tears.
It’s really rare that I create from a place of grief. It’s just not how I operate. But it’s largely what I have openly felt for the last few days, and reflecting on it, it’s been there for far longer.
This quote from Elizabeth’s piece— “We should have a war memorial for all of the women we have lost to this. We should lay flowers and grieve and see our reflections in stone.”— struck a very literal chord in me.
So yeah, here it is. A place just for me where I can light a candle and remember all of the wonderful people I probably will never get the chance to meet.  Folks that have been driven away by these horrible fucks that have the audacity to think they know what gaming and community is about.
en memoriam.

I have never, in my life, been ashamed to call myself a gamer. Until now. These misogynist little shitbags are a disgrace to our community.
All of us who care about gaming need to step up and save our community, while there is still something about it that’s worth saving.

I disagree: what we have ISN’T worth saving. Real names (with proof provided to service provider) for EVERY multiplayer gaming platform. XBL, PSN, Steam, Desura, Roblox, Minecraft… all of them.

A war memorial??!
YOu fucking pretentious, self-indulgent crybabies.   You wouldn’t know a war if your spoilt, pampered little asses got drafted.
Yeah you’ll never meet women actually involved in the industry because you can’t take five minutes to learn about the likes of Reiko Kodama, Terri Brosius or Soraya Saga because you are too busy wallowing in self pity over first world problems, and because the women mentioned don’t sit around being professional victims the way Anita and her drones do: they get out and get shit done.  
A war memorial?  You neurotic prima donnas wouldn’t last five minutes in any profession  that involves anything other then whining on the internet.

First of all, as someone who was born and raised in a military environment, my disgust for this entire post is just bottomless. How the hell can you pampered little shits act like you deserve a memorial for your “suffering”? How can any of you support this bullshit crusade?
Secondly, if you’re honestly going to act like you’ve somehow been victimized in this situation, I’m going to have to ask you to grow up and face the facts. Zoe Quinn is not a good person. She is nothing more than a manipulative liar, whose latest exploits include supporting the doxxing of a trans minor. She is doing nothing for the gaming industry aside from making indie developers look like a bunch of contrived, sniveling cry babies, who hide behind their so-called ideals of “social justice”. While in reality, their idea of social justice only applies to people who agree with them: IE, anyone part of a minority group who opposes their ideals doesn’t exist.
I’m a woman. I’ve been playing video games for upwards of twenty years, ever since I could hold a controller as a child. And you know what I think? I think people - no, women - like Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn are a fucking disgrace. I hate that they feel the need to hide behind their gender in order to play the victim card, while simultaneously slandering others who don’t follow their lead. And I hate that people are constantly getting suckered into this, believing that anyone who opposes their points of view must be bad simply because the “victims” are female.
Video games are for everyone. Not just men, and not just women. The people supporting Gamer Gate are not a bunch of misogynistic white males who live in their parents basements. They’re people like you and me; average people from all walks of life who like playing video games, and want the bullshit to stop.
If you honestly want good, solid information on what’s going on, I’ll link you to a series of videos that sum up the events. But until then, don’t act like you deserve anything for your “suffering”. The only suffering going on is the fact that people who play video games are being needlessly slandered thanks to journalism sites - like Kotaku and Polygon - who are trying to cover up their deceit, seeing as they have their hands in each others’ pockets. Not to mention the whole WizardChan situation that happened a couple months back, which seems to have been conveniently forgotten about.
But you know what? We don’t want a fucking war memorial. We just want a little thing called journalistic integrity. And for people to stop coming into the gamer sandbox and telling us what we should think about video games, instead of letting us decide for ourselves.
That’s it, that’s all. And that’s all it ever was.
