SXSW kowtows to feminists over #GamerGate panels

Gavin McInnesArchive

Gamergate may be a year old but the feminists just will not let it die.


For those of you not interested in seemingly irrelevant Internet beefs, Gamergate refers to a scandal wherein a game designer corrupted a video game reviewer by sleeping with him. This caused a massive backlash from the gaming community which resulted in a backlash against the backlash run by feminists. In short, women want to be 50% of video game culture but it's not working out like that. The gamers are more concerned with meritocracy and put the feminists in their place (which is something conservatives appear unable to do).

It's only about 10 feminists but this beast keeps rearing it's 10-headed head and the most recent attack was on the SXSW festival in Austin because they dared to host a panel that would discuss it. After constant threats, SXSW shut it down and got even more threats from gamers. They have since brought it back but only when the odds were stacked ridiculously high on the feminist side. Now it's one person on a panel who thinks gamers should be left alone and the same 10 nightmares spouting feminist claptrap.

The scary thing about all this is gamers have been the most successful so far at fighting the Social Justice Warriors and even they are losing. In other words, we're doomed.

Peter, did you watch the same rant I did? Yes, Gavin is not a fan of video games, But he is less a fan of the wackos who are trying to pressure everyone else to buy into their self serving ideology. These feminists are acting more like the bullies they are decrying.

Okay Gavin, so you don’t like video games. YAWN Each to their own. No real difference between collecting some people together and playing Bridge from collecting some people together and a playing video game. Playing video games is just another form of entertainment. Better than watching TV all night each night like a couch spud.

If you have no respect for video games as a medium generally, you are a Luddite akin to some scribe bemoaning these new fangled printed books that this damn Gutenberg chap is producing, or a stage actor sneering at cinema. You are on the wrong side of history and far from coming across as adult, you just come across as ill-informed. Take a look at Witcher 3 if you actually care to see where the current state of the art of video game story telling is.

But otherwise I do indeed agree with the thrust of your video.

What happened to real feminists who actually cared about womens lives?

Does anybody want to bet that Just-in is not going to restore the advocacy funding to feminists? Feminism is the womyn’s auxilliary of the Liberal Party.

lol… feminism once upon a time meant something… now I’m not sure they even know what they are fighting for anymore other than to say ‘look at me’!!!
