5 Things I Learned as the Internet's Most Hated Person


This is a really great and funny read, and it’s nice to hear from the target for a change, instead of the hordes of goons doing the attacking. Maybe the best part of the article, though, is the editor’s note at the beginning:

A few weeks ago our message board and general inbox were bombarded with demands we address something called the “GamerGate Scandal”, posts written with the urgency and rage one would associate with, say, discovering that Chipotle burritos are made entirely from the meat of human babies. It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

Why political engagement is critical to games journalism


Earlier tonight, someone tweeted at me, “Not to be rude, but you’re part of the problem. You’ve compromised your integrity as a journalist by being an activist.”

There are always a few things that come to mind when I hear this viewpoint expressed. First of all, my role at…

College kids literally don’t care about walking in the way of cars at school because we’re like “hit me i don’t care pay my tuition.”

"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"

"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"

"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"

"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."

"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"

i’ve been saving some of my favourite replies by Leigh Alexander to gamer dweebs on twitter thinking they’re important enough to ~critique~ her

I love this shit. And I can just hear the oxford debating nerdbros now, whining about how her refusing to debate these scabs means her arguments are unsound. The truth is simpler than that: not EVERY hateful dipshit who throws up on your Twitter page is entitled to a full debate on every paragraph of their anti-feminist manifesto. Sorry, guys. Sometimes you’re just not worth it, and we have better things to do than waste our time on you. It doesn’t mean you’ve “won” the argument - sometimes it just means you are too pathetic to even be considered a part of the conversation.

A 90-Second Guide to Determine if Your Internet Cause is B.S.


Question 1: Does Your Cause Require an Elaborate Conspiracy Theory to Be True?

If you answered yes, it’s probably bullshit.

For instance, let’s say there’s a movement called #GamerGate, about irate gamers protesting the lack of ethics in gaming journalism. OK, sounds like a good,…
