Looks like Mod Wendigo is a bit too real for Polygon, looks like those strait men know more about what insults women than an actual woman does.

So my mass communications class was going over current news stories today and my professor brought up gamergate. She asked the class if anyone knew what it was about and I raised my hand and said 'It's basically about corruption in video game journalism.' My professor told me I was wrong and said it was actually about women in the gaming industry fighting against sexism and sexist characters in video games. Am I wrong or does she have it backwards?

notallfeminists:

Oh brother, she even got the wrong explanation wrong. Anti-GamerGate says GamerGate is about sexism and misogyny in the gaming industry. We don’t want women in “our boys club”. (In case you were wondering, I’ve been playing games since I was a little girl.)  

Maybe she saw Sarkeesian talking about her HUGE GIANT MASSACRE DEATH THREAT! The one where they determined that it posed no threat to the students, the staff or the speaker. And she just mysteriously linked it to GamerGate herself, without any mention of it in the threat. 

Here’s GamerGate in 60 Seconds and an interview with 3 misogynistic sexists from GamerGate & NotYourShield (Georgina Young @georgieonthego, Jennie Bharaj @jenniebharaj, Jemma Morgan @ShuluuMoo)

Your professor didn’t only have it backwards, but completely wrong.

I present to you - Feminist Bingo! Everytime a feminist mentions one of these things, cross it out. I expect easy speed-runs.

Anti-GGs: *makes fun of #notyourshield and their supporters*
Anti-GGs: *condones the corruption in gaming journalism*
Anti-GGs: "Why does everyone hate us?"

Gamer Gate

People need to stop being petty about gamer gate and not be partisan about the deal. Lay out the facts, read the articles on both sides and formulate your own opinion that is not based on what your peers believe. That’s what our English teachers try to cram in our brains from kinder garden to college. Super fucking simple stuff.

I love music with this tone, it’s calming to me, and kinda nostalgic
