The story of #Gamergate has been one of the most explosive moments in gaming journalism in recent memory, and now, we’re learning why.
It all started with the very first video game journalist to publicly accuse #GamerGaters of harassment.
It was then that the #gamergate hashtag was born, and a movement began that was fueled by the belief that women and minorities in gaming were being targeted by a misogynistic, misogynistic media industry.
It’s become a potent and potent rallying cry for gamers, and while many have embraced #Gamergaters as a hashtag to call out online abuse, the movement has also become a major source of anger among gamers, some of whom have taken to harassing women in gaming and other media.
We asked several people who have spoken out about the #gamersquad, including game developers, journalists, and fans, to share their thoughts on the #Gatersquad, and the impact it’s had on their own careers.
“It’s been a very difficult year for me and the gaming industry as a whole.
We’re still figuring out how to be more inclusive, and how to deal with issues like this,” said Anita Sarkeesian, a prominent critic of sexism in video games.
Sarkeesians first gained attention when she launched an online series on YouTube called Tropes vs. Women in Video Games in 2012, which has since been watched more than 1 billion times.
Sarvesi has written about the subject since 2014, and she recently wrote a new book about the issue called “Tropes vs Women in Videogames: Inside the Culture of Harassment and Abuse in Video Game Culture.”
Sarkeesian’s latest video, “A Woman Called Zoe Quinn,” has been viewed nearly one billion times, and has been described as the most-watched video of the year.
Sarzysian said that the reaction of her fans has been very positive.
“I think that they feel empowered to speak up about these issues because they feel they have an advocate for them,” Sarkeesia said.
“And I think that’s what this has really been about.
Because when you have an actual advocate for something, you can really hear the issues.”
But the #Gamersquad isn’t the only hashtag that has been causing trouble for Sarkeesis.
Some #GamerGhazi and #GamerPants have been called racist slurs, and others have been accused of promoting pedophilia.
“You know, we have people who do it [racism], we have a guy that has said that I should have just been a baby or a bitch, you know, or something like that,” Sarzises said.
She also said that there are people on the “Gaters” side of the spectrum who have been harassing people on Twitter.
“The problem is, you’re dealing with people who are using this hashtag, this movement, as a way to bully people and spread hatred and violence against women and people of color, against anybody who has an opinion about what’s happening in this industry,” Sarzan said.
“When you have people on both sides of the aisle, I think we need to be careful because there are a lot of really good people that are on both the sides,” Saranys said.
Sarzias said that she thinks that gamers are “under siege,” but that she has faith in the gaming community to keep the flame alive.
“So many people in the industry are working very hard to make the industry better, and I know that I have a lot to contribute to that,” she said.
But she’s also worried that the movement could take away from gaming.
“If people are saying that they want to be free of this toxic environment, then they’re going to be marginalized in a lot more ways than just gaming,” she added.
