this post proves that gamergate is ultimately about the gamer community's inability to cope with new ideas, history and understand things written by human beings.
For a group of people concerned with ethics and integrity, rewriting history is sure first nature to you guys. Zoe Quinn never killed TFYC to advance Rebel Jam. She made a couple of standalone tweets and engaged in some conversations on twitter about how shitty TFYC's plan was and how awful the profit sharing is. Also, TFYC was always about profit, so I don't know why people think they're some kind of charity. They're not. It's a whole duplicitous mess.
In terms of being incapable of basic comprehension, when the articles were going out saying, "Gamers are dead." they meant, "The idea of 'gamers' being the core audience for games is coming to a close and people making games should be more broad minded."
What this was interpreted as was, "Gamers are scumbags and we should shut them down."
When Anita Sarkeesian posted videos about how sexist tropes are being used in video games to reenforce sexist ideas in our culture became, "Video games make you sexist and you should avoid them at all costs."
Political agendas ARE in gaming. Gender politics IS here to stay and was here from the very beginning. I mean, I can point to an incident during Street Fighter v Tekken's hype phase where Sanford Kelly verbally abused a woman who was a competitor using awful gendered language. If you don't think that's not gender politics at play, then you're an idiot.
What it comes down to is, gamers don't want to have to feel uncomfortable about anything and will use anything they can to justify their selfish outrage. Somehow Anita and Zoe and Brianna criticizing games and the games industry as being sexist is restricting freedom of expression but Mass Effect 3 having a less than satisfying ending is enough to get gamers riled up and demand Bioware they change it.
It's a mess.
Give up. Learn to read a book. get a liberal arts degree. get the stick out of your asses and understand that there is more to life than your own narrow understanding of it.
