For instance, let’s say there’s a movement called #GamerGate, about irate gamers protesting the lack of ethics in gaming journalism. OK, sounds like a good, simple cause. Now, let’s say the specific ethical breach that enraged them is about a feminist indie game designer who a bunch of gamers already hated supposedly gaining control of the gaming media through her vagina — all of this based on the conjectures of a guy on YouTube who also seems to think government scientists are involved. As in, apparently there’s a secret DARPA project to brainwash gamers into, uh, being more tolerant of women. The bastards.
