I am NOT A bigot. Are You? #GamerGate

I am NOT a bigot just because I like video games. I don't hate women, I don't hate people of color, I don't hate homosexuals, I don't hate transgendered folks, and I don't hate the disabled.

Borderlands 2 Writer Confirms Further Corruption in Gaming Journalism

Quote:
Anthony Burch from Gearbox makes a series of tweets exposing even MORE corruption in Gaming Journalism as he confirms that his friends at Destructoid reviewed DLC for Borderlands 2.

GamerGate continues with more and more developers getting involved. But instead of taking the side of their consumer they continue to expose more corruption in gaming journalism!

Hey, gamers! Why do gaming news sites suddenly want to erase you?

I don't like a lot of things that Microsoft has done in gaming. But I don't hate them, and I still buy their products.

You are certainly right at the epicenter. Most of your videos are in the first two threads on it.

His video is kind of preaching to the choice though. My concern is that the feminists at the core of this thing and the main supporters of those in being called into question will just do their typical thing: just interpret it as a validity of their position and as an indicator of the scale of the challenges before them. The best thing that can happen is these people end up marginalised.

I think it's already happening, there was a blog post from someone posting under the false name of Ariel something who publicly apologized to 4chan and admitted she blindly followed Quinn's lead. So it's getting to the point where even Quinn's supporters are reconsidering their positions.

Aha, found it : http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1s644c0

As a white male does my opinion and self worth even matter? I've been so coddled through life and all and painted bigot at birth by default.

Does hating Nazis count as being a bigot? Because if so, then yeah, I am. Fuck Nazis.

Having to even say that means you've already lost. The SJWs have you on the defensive, and as long as you're defending negatives, you'll never get to affirming positives.

Lost cause. You're a bigot, because you have to explain you're not.

Bigotry is a real thing and it is pretty common, but it's also another abused word that is used to jump to conclusions too often, just like... racist. I always go back to the Sterling thing. Whether you agree with him or not, apparently respecting his opinion or not supporting gay marriage instantly makes you a bigot with an unacceptable viewpoint. Double-standards galore in society today.

Sheep, sheep everywhere. Stop worrying about this sensationalist bullshit. Don't buy games that you know are terrible. I know you can figure this out, you've been playing games a long time; you are now a discerning consumer of video games. Let the SJWs create and latch on to garbage like Gone Home. Ignore it. When all 0.1% of the market that are these retards are the only ones who buy the game, the developers won't have a choice but to go back to making good games. Ignore the journalists who support them, think critically about who they are and what they're saying and what they actually represent and realize it's all bullshit, just like most media is.

The market has become huge, but we're all still thinking on a small scale. We want the whole industry to continue to be our little niche where every game is amazing and we're just "playing to play games". But it's gone global now, with most of the population of the planet playing games in some form. So all the bullshit that infects the rest of society is of course going to appear in gaming. Ignore it. Focus on the people and the developers that are still doing good things, support them (OMG Elite Dangerous is fucking amazing, get it). There's enough room for everybody. It was only a matter of time before the "purity" of our hobby was destroyed, but it's going to be okay.

Being an asshole is not a privilege of any specific race/religion/orientation.

Sorry about the awful song...

I just wanted to prove that I'm not a bigot!

How could I be if I love English 1980s pop? Especially in the 1980s when I wore their T-Shirt?

Not enuf for you?

I watched David Hasslehoff on Knight Rider & loved it. That right there proves I'm ok with Regan-reformed Germany. Or at least white people not from NA.

I even had a Russian friend growing up. We called him Russ... hahah!
Who would've thought he had a Chinaman's chance working in a nuclear power plant in the good ol cold-war USSA?

My old room mate was ashy as they come... Like Miles Davis "feeling blue" black. We played UT together for 3 years. I used to make fun of him cuz he always... ALWAYS turned the enforcer sideways (right click). I used to yell at him "DAMMIT MIKE!!! WHY DO ALL OF YOU TURN THE GUN SIDEWAYS? IS IT A MATTER OF PRIDE?!". We always had a blast together. Guy was genuinely one of the most entertaining people I've ever met.

No really - I'm white & not a bigot.

BIGOT!

Some of you remember Christine O'Donnell, Senate candidate from Delaware. "I am not a witch."

Yeah. Okay. YOU LOSE. You had to defend against a negative, casting doubt upon your character. After all, why do you have to say that? Must be a reason...

...playing right into their hands.
