IronPatriotSo what was Gamergate created to be about? In your opinion, Andrew.08/04/2015 - 1:12am
IronPatriotTherefore, Gamergate was NOT created to be about "ethics" and "ethics" itself is a lie. Right?08/04/2015 - 1:09am
IronPatriotAndrew, that is hardly my point. Not only is Gamergate's ethics charge against Sarkeesian a lie, but ethics charges against ALL its original targets were lies. Right?08/04/2015 - 1:09am
ZippyDSMleenormal publishers anyway. Witht hat said my main book project has a narrator less native style, a type of exposition. I dunno if I am goign to change it or not dose not seem to flow as well as the one I finished.08/04/2015 - 1:06am
ZippyDSMleeMattsworkname: I still do not grasp grammar and proper literature level grammar is beyond me, not to mention its a questionable game of tag with publishers so I will just self publish, since my writing style is simpsltic it dose not fit into the norms of08/04/2015 - 1:05am
IronPatriotCongrats, Zippy08/04/2015 - 1:04am
Andrew EisenI believe if Chris was actually interested in arguing the subject matter, he would have looked at the more fully formed argument linked to by Sarkeesian in the same series of Tweets he's focusing on rather than the tweets themselves.08/04/2015 - 1:02am
MattsworknameZippie:: Got a publisher yet? or you doing the "online publishing thing"08/04/2015 - 12:59am
MattsworknameAndrew: Yep, though thankfully its not as common as it was when GG started. hopefully as time goes on, it'll just fade away entriely08/04/2015 - 12:58am
ZippyDSMleeGot one of my "books" (such as it is) finished, 17k words, here is the first chapter. http://zippydsmlee.tumblr.com/post/123483609450/chronicles-of-the-lord-of-power-lost-and08/04/2015 - 12:56am
Andrew EisenPeople decided to hate her before she said anything and to this day are desperately search for something, anything to justify that decision.08/04/2015 - 12:56am
MattsworknameExactly andrw anita had teh ire of some people in the movment and as a result she got dragged into the mess . Not fair, not pleasent, but thats all there to it. Moving on08/04/2015 - 12:55am
Andrew EisenHow did she piss off a large group? By announcing the intention to produce a series of videos examining the representation of females in video games if enough people were interested in the project to donate $6k. That horrible monster!08/04/2015 - 12:54am
Mattsworknamethe whole thing exploded. The ethics targerts were actually stuff like polygon, kotaku, Gamesutra, Leagh alexander, Etc etc. Anita was just an extra name they could throw on the pile08/04/2015 - 12:52am
Andrew EisenSarkeesian isn't a journalist. If GamerGate is SOLELY about ethics in games journalism it shouldn't have any interest in her. Point made. Move on.08/04/2015 - 12:47am
MattsworknameIP: Cause she got caught in a larger issue by pissing off a large group. As andrew and I have discussed in the past, the issues at hand with her videos are more about content and context then ethics, she just got pulled into the larger fight about it when08/04/2015 - 12:47am
MattsworknameI find it hard to dispute his points andrew, though you are right ,his points are often focused on VERY specific statements and concerns, of that you are correct08/04/2015 - 12:45am
Andrew EisenOh well. At least it was only seven and a half minutes.08/04/2015 - 12:45am
IronPatriotMattswork, if Gamergate is actually about ethics in journalism, why is Sarkeesian a major gamergate target?08/04/2015 - 12:45am
Andrew EisenI watched Chris's video. It's pretty lousy. He has a serious problem with strawman arguments, taking things out of context and arguing pieces of an argument in turn rather than the overarching point.08/04/2015 - 12:44am
