Brianna Wu Loses It, Spawns PieGate

I kinda hesitated to write this story up, since so many people tell me we should ignore nutters like Brianna Wu. You know that goes against everything I’ve always preached. Still, I was actually considering it tonight. The reason I changed my mind is because...

UPDATE: Lunch With Gamasutra Editors for $20,000

Unstable Gaming Journo Challenges GamerGate to a Fistfight

I’ve been fucking around all night being unproductive. But you know what I haven’t done? Challenged a large group of people to a fight. It’s just not something I usually do, unless I had about thirty shots, or so. Even then, it probably wouldn’t be...

Site Update, Plus a Reminder of What We Fight Against

I got my computer put up last night and damn, there’s a world of difference. My shit no longer sounds like a small aircraft. It actually runs Tweetdeck without slowing down. I’m going to try some gaming on it later with Rome Total War II....

Feds Are Now Funding Study of “Toxic” Gamer Rhetoric, Plus Jezebel’s Anna Merlan Interviewed

It’s been a wild afternoon. KingofPol had his farewell (yes, again, lol) stream with Anna Merlan of Jezebel, and Sargon of Akkad. Afterwards, she thought it was fair to release an out of context email exchange she had with the host, but that’s Gawker for...

Even The New York Times is Calling Out “Safe Space” Campus Culture

I read an editorial yesterday from this past weekend’s New York Times. I know, some of you probably hate The Times. They’ve disappointed me recently with their GamerGate reporting. But every once in awhile, they’ll surprise you. That’s what happened with this piece. Going in,...

8chan /gamergate/ Board Collapses, Successor Board Emerges (UPDATE)

Arthur Chu’s Long Descent Into Dumbassery

Sorry I’m late. I’ve been on a Netflix marathon today, and I actually got to play a little vidya earlier as well. So it’s been a pretty great day. Also a there’s lot of drama with the /gamergate/ board on 8chan that I’m thankfully not...

LEVELING UP? Richard Dawkins Goes After The Block Bot & Talks About GamerGate

Be Proud That Celebs Like Shailene Woodley Are Standing Up to Radical Feminists

GUEST POST by Kat Yarborough I was surfing through my Twitter feed one evening when I saw a Shailene Woodley’s face beside the faces of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Though I probably wouldn’t pause for Kelly and Carrie, I paused for a second when...

Twitter Cozying Up To SJWs in Order to Smokescreen Sex Discrimination Lawsuit?

Last night, a friend of mine on Twitter passed along an interesting story to me. Mashable is reporting that Twitter is getting sued for sex discrimination by one of its longest tenured female employees. The merits of the lawsuit itself aren’t as important to me...
