RogueStar Has Wings Clipped By Special Snowflake Brianna Wu

There aren’t too many dull days here in GamerGate country, and today was no exception. Just as I was about to fire up the PS4, I got word that RogueStarGamez, AKA Slade Villena, has been suspended from Twitter (again). Earlier in the day, he had...

Best of TheRalphRetort’s #BasedCommentSection

If you’re not on Twitter, don’t sweat it. You’re far from the only one. Even though I’m now a full blown addict, it’s not for everyone. I get it. But over the last few months, I’ve been posting some of my favorite reader comments there...

Race-Baiting Insider Ernest W. Adams Is Everything Wrong With Industry

Since IGDA is a corrupt organization, and has taken several shots at me in the past, including stealing my article and making it available for download to the masses, I don’t hold a lot of love for them. The other reason I don’t like them,...

December to Remember as AAA Support Comes to GamerGate

It’s been a kind of slow week, with some good news mixed here and there. The reports of Gawker’s own insurance company turning on them brought some holiday cheer. Zoe Quinn attacking me was amusing. But the big news of the week comes from an...

Australian Wakeup Call in Fight Against Fascists Like #FullMcIntosh

The last couple days, most of you have heard about the news coming out of Australia. To briefly summarize, in case you haven’t: Target & K-Mart of Australia (not affiliated with US companies) have decided to stop selling Grand Theft Auto V,  one of the...

Hulk Hogan Laughs as Insurance Company Turns on Gawker

As most of you know, I’m a huge wrestling fan. I’ve been out of the loop at bit the last few months, but it’s still something I love. One of my favorite wrestlers of all time is Hulk Hogan. His actual wrestling ability is low,...

New York Times Continues To Prove Its Best Days Are Long Gone

Yesterday, Twitter rolled out some changes that are coming to the service. You will no longer be able to see someone’s timeline if one, or both you, have each other blocked. Third parties will be able to report “abuse” they witness. They’re also talking about...

Zoe Quinn’s Lies Corrupted The Media, But Not TheRalph

Right before I fell asleep last night (actually 6AM, but whatever), someone sent me a link to an unhinged blog post on Medium. I kinda skimmed through half of it without looking at the author. I came upon a passage which I thought was hilarious....

Promo Editorial: Roosh V Talks About GamerGate, & Reaxxion

A week or two ago, the controversial Roosh V offered to sponsor some content here on the site. Adsense isn’t exactly the most lucrative platform, although it is steady. As I said last night, I would have almost certainly ran it for free, so this...

It’s About Ethics, And Steve Tom Sawyer Doesn’t Have Any

Tomorrow, I’m going to have a paid promotional editorial from the controversial Roosh V here on the site. I would have run it for free, so it’s nice that he wanted to help support what I’m doing here. It’s not for much, but I still...

The GamerGate Dream Will Never Die

We had a somewhat rough Thanksgiving weekend, and TheRalphRetort was right here at the center of it. First, we had the Steve Tom Sawyer revelations, which were big enough (updated yesterday). Then, an admittedly disgruntled Internet Aristocrat quit GamerGate. Afterwards, he was gracious enough to...

CLAIM: AAA Artist Threatened Into Quitting Over GamerGate Support

Early this morning, a AAA dev supposedly came out on Twitter. I’ve heard about this coming for awhile, but I didn’t know who it was. Well, it finally happened early this morning. He goes by the name of The_GoldBat on Twitter, and he outed himself...

TheRalph’s Exit Interview With Internet Aristocrat

I had quite the roller coaster morning. After the piece the went live from the women on the other side of the Steve Tom Sawyer situation. I had to talk to about 300 people in a very short amount of time. Well, I didn’t have...

The Other Side Of The Story: Steve Tom Sawyer Faces The Music (UPDATE with Restraining Order)

As you know, over the last couple days, we have taken a look at some ethical controversies surrounding Steve Tom Sawyer. I’ve withheld judgement on him so far, and I will do so again today. The reader can decide for themselves. I’ve spoken with one...

Gawker Media, and Demented Jezebel, Still Lying About GamerGate

As I sat down to enjoy my leftovers today, I was alerted to a story about a female Australian video games journalist. It pretty simple. Basically, little shitstains send her rape threats and stuff like that, and instead of calling the police, she calls the...

Blocklist Blockhead Randi Harper Bullies Ally Off Twitter (UPDATED)

Earlier this AM, I was watching a replay of the Survivor Series from this past Sunday, and missed out on a few hours of Twitter activity. Lately, it’s rare that I miss much time there, outside of sleep. I never thought I would become a...
