I read this out loud to boyfriend and he just went “ohhhhhhhhh”
CEOs all runnin around terrified of blue shells from the homeless
but in our system the ceo’s somehow have all the blue shells and use them to make sure no one ever gets out of the rut they stuck them in.
wheresthefudge said: So my mass communications class was going over current news stories today and my professor brought up gamergate. She asked the class if anyone knew what it was about and I raised my hand and said 'It's basically about corruption in video game journalism.' My professor told me I was wrong and said it was actually about women in the gaming industry fighting against sexism and sexist characters in video games. Am I wrong or does she have it backwards?
Oh brother, she even got the wrong explanation wrong. Anti-GamerGate says GamerGate is about sexism and misogyny in the gaming industry. We don’t want women in “our boys club”. (In case you were wondering, I’ve been playing games since I was a little girl.)
Maybe she saw Sarkeesian talking about her HUGE GIANT MASSACRE DEATH THREAT! The one where they determined that it posed no threat to the students, the staff or the speaker. And she just mysteriously linked it to GamerGate herself, without any mention of it in the threat.
Here’s GamerGate in 60 Seconds and an interview with 3 misogynistic sexists from GamerGate & NotYourShield (Georgina Young @georgieonthego, Jennie Bharaj @jenniebharaj, Jemma Morgan @ShuluuMoo)
Your professor didn’t only have it backwards, but completely wrong.
