For the Uninitiated: #GamerGate

I’ve struggled to get my head round GamerGate.  It clearly means different things to different people, who all generally feel very strongly about the subject.

As far as I can tell, succinctly, it appears to be a debate about anti cronyism in the games industry which has been spun into a completely different debate about racism and misogyny (probably partly by the crones whose corruption was being challenged in the first place).

Anyway, I’m not a Gamer so I decided to ask some people who are, so my thanks and kudos to @JennOfHardwire and B E A R ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ aka ‏@abearyhandsomem for the information included below the line.

  1. breddy gud but 4chan has little to nothing to do with #gamergate, due to the fact that discussion is not allowed there AT ALL.

    This is rumored to be due to Moot being in a verified relationship with someone at Gawker.
