DocMelonheadOr all you wanted to see is counter proof that GamerGate is a Bigot campaign against Social Justice Studies in Video games? Either way, It's no wonder you got banned back then.08/03/2015 - 10:43pm
DocMelonheadI said that as a belief because the lie that Anita Sarkeesian is a Hack is very common among the skeptics. Also why the well do you dehumanize Total Biscuit anyways? Do you have a grudge against gamergate?08/03/2015 - 10:42pm
DocMelonheadIron Patriot, I have no proof, I got no evidence, hell the main reason I said that is because I hate your aggressiveness. All I said is that I believe that Total Biscuit regurgitate the same belief that Anita Sarkeesisan's a fraud08/03/2015 - 10:37pm
IronPatriotbenohawk, why do you believe TotalLyingBiscuit when he says he cares about ethics? If he cared about ethics, why did he LIE so much about Gamergate victims like Sarkeesian? How is his lying ETHICAL?08/03/2015 - 10:22pm
IronPatriotDocMelon, prove your claim that TotalLyingBiscuit did not make up the anti-Sarkeesian lies he told to proven harassers in Gamergate. Prove it.08/03/2015 - 10:19pm
DocMelonheadOnce you watch this in full, then you realize why Gamergate is a thing.08/03/2015 - 10:10pm
DocMelonheadSo once again, I invite you to watch this video to see what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y8XgGhXkTQ&list=PLJA_jUddXvY62dhVThbeegLPpvQlR4CjF08/03/2015 - 10:09pm
benohawkThe simplest way is to look at what he's said in total, as mentioned before, he's come out against harassment, and that his past behavior suggests that he's very much in it for Ethics and not to try and drive women out of the industry08/03/2015 - 10:03pm
DocMelonheadBecause that is the exact same nutpicking that made GamerGate infamous in the first place.08/03/2015 - 10:02pm
DocMelonheadAnd even if they didn't spread misinformation on Feminist, there's someone out there that does. So with that in mind, it's best to educate people on feminism and critical thinking instead on relying on blog posts and storify on such things.08/03/2015 - 10:01pm
DocMelonheadHell, the same could be said about MundaneMatt, ThunderFoot, or IA/MM/Jim: they're all Angry Jack because of fucking denial. I get that you Despise them for what they did to Anita Sarkeesian, but Calling them demons isn't going to solve anything.08/03/2015 - 9:58pm
DocMelonheadTotal Biscuit is more like Angry Jack than a complete bigot. What he did is bad, but he's beyond someone that constantly harass others.08/03/2015 - 9:55pm
DocMelonheadA moron, not a bigot, a moron in regards to women studies. That is why he brought on to the whole SJW BS; haven't you watch the entire Angry Jack series yet?08/03/2015 - 9:53pm
IronPatriotIf you can't prove that TotalLYINGSACKOFbiscuit was only parroting lies against victims of Gamergate harassment, then what do you think of him?08/03/2015 - 9:46pm
IronPatriotSo prove that TotalLYINGSACKOFbiscuit was not also making up lies, since you stated that as a fact.08/03/2015 - 9:45pm
IronPatriotIt's would only be bad if TotalLYINGSACKOFBiscuit was making up lies?08/03/2015 - 9:44pm
DocMelonheadAlso yes, because he DIDN'T make them up: in fact, that more or less make him a moron that fell for their guise than a bigot that actively harass minorities online.08/03/2015 - 9:43pm
IronPatriotSo it's better to 'parrot" lies about victims of harassment?08/03/2015 - 9:43pm
DocMelonheadIP: 4chan no longer support GamerGate, they outright banned it. Besides, Total Biscuit parroted said lies, not making them up.08/03/2015 - 9:40pm
IronPatriotSo supporting a 4chan cult of harrassment by spreading LIES about thier victims makes him a "good" person? LOL08/03/2015 - 9:36pm
