I want to support what #gamergate is supposed to be. A call to erase the corruption in gaming journalism and to be more inclusive of more than just white straight dudes; I'm not a straight white dude so that's my motivation. I think that the horrible death threats made by some who claim to support the hashtag are people who I would equate to religious extremists, they do not represent everyone who supports it. Though there are still problems with the entire issue in particular.

I really appreciate this, I think everyone supports what it is SUPPOSED to be, I don’t know many people who would say “yeah, I’m okay with corrupt journalism.”  I think journalistic integrity is a wonderful ideal in a world of media that has been twisted into saying exactly what you want your key demographic audience to hear for the sake of viewership and profitability.  I would support gamergate if it had any proper foothold in actually preventing corruption and not using it as a curtain to hide abuse behind.  I am not convinced by the arguments that “I only want journalistic integrity” when really it’s a scapegoat to dig up intensely personal information, spin it for a certain audience, and then act like they are the heroes for invading someone’s privacy.  For example, it was a breach of journalistic integrity to publicly expose the previous breach of journalistic integrity in such an impersonal way, especially no one was really sure if the facts checked out or not (are we even sure now?).  One breach of integrity does not cancel out another, it just makes it spiral further downward.  Gamergate was sort of spawned by the very corruption it claims to rally against.  I know that the leak was some podunk wordpress blog but somehow creating a sensationalist crusade to ruin someone’s career equates to fighting corruption in all its forms.

The focus on purely gaming journalism is also problematic, you see this kind of disingenuous journalism in all manner of media, so of course gaming journalism, which was born from more established forms of journalism, will be corrupt just like all the rest.  It sucks, I wish it weren’t the case, but why would gaming journalism be convinced to change when all of its many older big brothers don’t have to, and haven’t had to since… forever?  This is also not to say that I or anyone else is okay with it, but you won’t make any reasonable changes in journalism without taking it on as a whole entity.  What is happening now is that it’s a great excuse to shut down, abuse, and downright scare female journalists from doing anything in the gaming industry without the looming fear that someone will end up hacking and leaking their personal life to everyone all the while spinning it to make them into a villain so that male gamers can attach themselves to a secretly abusive narrative while still being allowed to claim “it’s for journalistic integrity!!!”

It’s very smart the way they market the movement, it’s very sad the way its supporters have taken it as an excuse to continue abusing and scaring women from taking part in an industry that has from day one done everything in its power to keep them out.

what’s really wild is that if you tell me you support gamergate, it instantly translates in my head to “there are no women in this world that i care about more than video games”

Or… That they care about journalistic integrity and want to end corruption within gaming journalism..

But then again, why bother doing research when you can just jump on the hate bandwagon right.

you’re the one spouting the same old nonsense about corruption and unethical journalism when the entire movement has been devoted to the harassment and belittling of women in the gaming industry.  gamergate may have been about these things at one point for a very short time but has very quickly turned into making as many excuses as possible to bar women from entry in the old boys club of video games.

so essentially what i heard from you was “there are no women in the world i care about more than video games”

Tell all these women that they value themselves lower than videogames.

Tell all of us that these women value themselves lower than videogames.

Tell yourself that all these women value themselves lower than videogames.

Go ahead, I’m waiting.

What this hashtag is missing though is that I don’t need a shield, I am allowed to exist in the world of games without a barrier to entry and no one questions my involvement or actively tries to remove me from it or challenge my knowledge of the medium.

What I do find interesting about #notyourshield is how ready people are to defend a counterpoint that does nothing but further isolate women and trick them into pitting themselves against each other, so us dudes can play dark souls in peace and quiet without being nagged for once!

I didn’t know about #notyourshield until just now.  Wild!

I don’t know, telling someone to “do your research and don’t get exploited” is a pretty easy way to condescend without saying anything meaningful.

Unethical journalism exists everywhere; there for it’s okay according to you? You do know harassment exists everywhere too right? I’ve got an enormous amount of harassment from anti-GG’ers; heck, I’ve had personal info be put on the web cause of where i stand, as well as many others to the point where they’ve lost their jobs cause of it; but by your logic; it’s okay.

"but what about the narrative of putting prominent female figures in the gaming industry"

» That sounds fantastic. We’d love that. I’d love that. Heck, the Fine Young Capitalists tried that through a fundraisers(heavily supported by 4chan-ers) but anti-gamergaters shut it down ironically enough… 

What about #notyourshield? Where minority gamers stand up against being exploited? They must love videogames… more than themselves..  according to you? Crazy.

Gamergate is about ending corruption in videogames. To have relationships disclosed between journalists and developers and to prevent biases. That’s it. Period. Please, do some research; don’t let them exploit you.

No, you have literally missed all my points.  You give the illusion you read what I said by quoting me, but you are off the mark.  And you make a lot of claims saying that it’s by my logic, when it is not, these conclusions you have drawn are yours.

Unethical journalism exists everywhere, it is NOT okay, but why is gamergate so obsessed with limiting the scope of their activism to only gaming journalism.  Of course I know harassment exists everywhere, so what makes the kind that erupts from gamergate excusable?  IN FACT why is it inexcusable when it happens to your allies but not when it happens to the female figures in gaming being witch hunted.

You also misquoted me a little so let me help you out:

“‘but what about the narrative of putting prominent female figures in the gaming industry on display for everyone to tear apart without their permission using information stolen without their knowledge or consent

» That sounds fantastic.”

the part in bold was what you neglected to include.  Does it sound so fantastic to you now?

THIS IS CALLED SMOKE SCREENING FOLKS, DO NOT LET THEM DO THIS TO YOU.  DEMAND THE FACTS.

take a real hard look at the narratives of the movements you put your name behind.  understand that you can’t just take parts of the whole here.  the “but I don’t condone the death threats!!!” argument doesn’t do much good for me when you still support the movement the death threats came from.

… Lol umm… Please, do some research. This has nothing to do with ‘barring women from entry in the old boys club of video games.’

I know that’s what Anita has told you, and it’s fun to believe her blindly I’m sure.

That being said, you do know that when people called out the bs in gaming journalism, the journalists used this ‘gaming is an exclusive boys club’ as a cover up right..? What about all the minoritys standing behind gamergate? What about the minoritys tired of being exploited?

The people that have made gamergate about harrassing women and minorities and keeping them out of this apparent ‘boys club’ are the journalists and the antigamergate community.

It has… everything to do with that… the very inception of gamergate was framed around harassment, gross invasions of privacy, and sensational tell-alls about… you guessed it, women (perpetuated by male gamers for the entertainment of male gamers).  Here’s a fun fact: unethical journalism exists in LITERALLY ALL MEDIUMS but why are we only concerned about video games?  In fact, haven’t we all understood for a while that developers sometimes pay reviewers for good reviews?  Where was the rallying and the pitchforks?

So what does that leave us with… on the one hand, we have a narrative of dudes who are fed up with review systems?  Compelling, I guess, but what about the narrative of putting prominent female figures in the gaming industry on display for everyone to tear apart without their permission using information stolen without their knowledge or consent.  This isn’t some great unearthed scandal, this is literally just a way to divert attention from the fact that the movement of gamergate is being used to make harassment, invasions of privacy, and death threats (oh did i mention DEATH THREATS) a permissible outlet of “activism.”

So say it with me this time, “there are no women in this world that i care about more than video games”

What if all I want is for journalists and game designers not to be in collusion?

then start a movement that isn’t gamergate, instead of one that USES corruption in media and unethical journalism as a fantastically convenient smokescreen to cloud the poor treatment of women in the gaming world.
