Or maybe they're upset about all the abuse Quinn is receiving

So what? Does that justify their abusiveness?

Under their epistemic system, yes.

Zoe Quinn seems like an utter arse. I can't see how anyone outside of disagreeable women and white knights would defend her but whatever.

Gamergate is not about abusing Zoe Quinn, so I really don't know where you're pulling this shit from. Can you for once drop the white knight act?

I'm pulling it from the retarded article that The Terror linked.  It is entirely about the media's response to the harassment of Zoe Quinn.

This is the weirdest shit about SJWs. They cry about abuse but will never hesitate to abuse people who don't fit their "agenda". Targeting a group in a smear campaign and calling everyone involved sexist pigs, douchebags, and all around pathetic people seems to be perfectly fine in their books - when really the people they should be targeting with that are few outlying individuals. And they do this shit in "professional" news pieces. That's your forefront of social justice and tolerance.

Yes, yes, it's hard to be a gamer in the oppressive dystopia that our Tumblr overlords have set up, given the huge amount of influence and relevance they wield these days.  Stay strong, my brother.  We shall endure.

I love how for some people 'Social Justice Warrior' has become some sort of slur.

It's not surprising given how much of a joke many of them are. The term itself is silly. Using the word 'warrior' to describe someone behind a keyboard has always been a kind of humorous insult.

Unless they get a stalker who wants to kill them. That's kinda hard.

That doesn't happen too often. While there are a lot of problems to be addressed, some people act like it's Saudi Arabia.

I love how for some people 'Social Justice Warrior' has become some sort of slur.

Virtually everyone who uses the phrase means it as an insult.  And the fact that it is so universally accepted as a genuine insult across the Internet is strong evidence that the "no we're the real victims here" argument Blanko and the GamerGate supporters are pushing is ridiculous.

It's not surprising given how much of a joke many of them are. The term itself is silly. Using the word 'warrior' to describe someone behind a keyboard has always been a kind of humorous insult.

That's true, but when it comes to SJWs, it's the "social justice" part that seems to get mocked the most, not the "warrior" part.  On r/tumblrinaction, for example, most of the posts are basically just "lol this guy says we shouldn't make fun of fat people, what a fucking loser!" and the like.

/r/tumblrinaction is usually just as bad as the people they're mocking.

Yeah TiA can get pretty shitty. I think the silliness of the 'social justice' part is inherent enough. You're not performing any social justice by writing about imaginary grievances using made up words on Tumblr.

So, uhh, stuff has been happening on 4chan. Moot has begun removing all 'gamergate' related content, and many people seem to be losing their minds.
