define gamer: a person who plays a game or games, typically a participant in a computer or role-playing game.
Herp derp nothing about misogyny.
But thank you for the definition. I'll be sure to tell Anita and Zoe and all these gaming journalists that they aren't actually feminists. I'm sure they'll accept that.
Defending a strawman argument with a strawman argument isn't a great choice. Not a single person has said that. In fact, pretty much everyone wants that guy fired. So "That a boy" was said by no one ever.
Evidence that Zoe got death threats? Link? Reference? How's that for a double standard. You just take her word for it but demand unrealistic evidence for anything else.

Yours at the very least.
Manufacture what? The infographic? Would you find it more credible if there were simply more infographics with the same content? It was a review of the credibility of the threat. How come you don't have this same level of disbelief when the only evidence of threats that was manufactured was this one short term twitter account?
I suppose it helps explain your method of thinking. There is a large group of people circularly referencing each other about how there is totally no corruption going on in their circle. But they provide lots of stories and references to those stories so by virtue of the bandwagon fallacy they must be correct.
You should try reality, instead of FeministFrequency's imagination land. You'll find it much more rewarding.
Simple error? I mean I guess it would be understandable for someone that doesn't like or know anything about video games to not understand how game mechanics work. But completely misrepresenting how a game works is not a "simple error".
She hasn't made a lot of them; not sure how you would forget such an absurd part. She went on at length about Hitman and something about punishing women for their sexuality.
I have never used my integrity to promote someone that I am secretly sleeping with. Are you saying that you would do that given the chance?
The issue is nepotism and nothing at all to do with misogyny. You can keep repeating misogyny to derail the conversation all you'd like but it's clearly not all that effective.
Just world? What the hell are you going on about here? That has absolutely nothing to do with what was said.
If more women than men were dying in games you wouldn't be calling it a "simplistic" mentality. You just have a myopic attitude of anything that happens to women (or imaginary women) is bad and you try to rationalize it after.
The female body is used as an attention grabber in literally every thing ever done by humans. Even feminists use this.
Who cares? Men have their little "save the woman" fantasy- women have their little Twilight, 50 Shades, etc, etc, fantasies. There are plenty of stories and games that don't fit that mold and women are free to play and create what ever they want. Just because not everything panders to certain insufferable women (remember that plenty of women have been playing and loving these games for ever) doesn't make it misogynistic.
If you shove your way into a group and say "you gotta do things that I want because I don't like what you're doing now" nobody is going to like you. That isn't misogyny.
