Appended to add: I am not for harassing or raping anyone and if you’re doing that you’re no friend of mine. That said, for all the ongoing and constant rapity rape rape rape claims and overly sensitive threat assessment tactics from the delicate flowers of gamer feminism (or atheismplus) I’ve yet to see one actual police report in support (evidence?). If there was one police report or actual attempted rape for every 50,000 words spewed by these WATB, it would be a different story. I’m just dam tried of their grabbing the stage and using it to promote self serving balderdash.
Yesterday I reposted a comment on my blog that I had dropped on a website trumpeting an ability to mock and track the “new” misogyny! I used the opportunity to express my thoughts on (the ginned up) “gamer gate” controversy. It was received with the usual (expected) mix of ad hominem malarky and knee-jerk bile. What the replies lacked in total were any honest attempts at refuting the issues I leveled. There were plenty of feminist keyboard warriors who found the time to partake in my metaphorical stoning while simultaneously love bombing each other. This is a technique borrowed from religious cults and bolsters the mind-lock within the clammy confines of their heavily bunkered internet silos.
It’s not like I don’t have other things to tend to, but I do find the Gamergate brouhaha to be at least as interesting a time-waster as FarmVille or Bejeweled. It’s “CoffeeGate” all over again. Get out the porn and potato chips. This is going to be another doozy.
