    seven minutes hardly constitutes a bump, i'm talking more about the weeks/months in between bumps.

    lets face it, if nobody was gonna start another argument in here before my post, they're still not gonna do it now.

    To be honest, after watching the supercut, I feel like a lot of gamers have a pretty legitimate reason to be annoyed at the SVU episode. I get that they're going to do dramatic license and put in a rape and abduction, but the thing feels like a propaganda piece. Obviously, all of the concepts they talked about in the episode (women in gaming, swatting, doxxing, etc) are important, but spinning it into almost an actual terrorist operation is scaremongering.

    Of course the episode is cheesy as hell. However, I don't think "but none of these women have been raped or murdered yet" is a good enough reason to call this an exaggeration to absurd proportions.

    I don't believe that harassment, doxxing and wanted posters, death and rape threats, etc are just "boys being boys", so that title has already been earned.

    But it is an exaggeration. There is a significant difference between being a horrible douchebag on the internet and going out and sexually assaulting people.

    The episode should have just been about the hate speech, the swatting, and the doxxing.

    The thing I really don't like about the media depiction of Gamergate is that there's little coverage of the cases of swatting, harassment and threats from the side of GG's opposition, which is just as common (if not even more rampant) than the stuff coming from Gamergate supporters. There have been Pro-GG people who've been fired for even supporting the movement and were affected by harassing phone calls, plus at least one swatting attempt on an attorney who supported the movement. Hell, one journalist who wrote articles supporting GG had a filled syringe, and a dead animal sent to him by mail.
    They've got a whole page with some examples of this , and I don't think it covers everything.

    I thought about what I said earlier and wanted to clarify a little bit.

    What bugs me the most about the SVU episode is that it muddles up an already serious issue but turning it into a 24-esque terrorist organization with un-traceable livestreams and stuff like that. It reeks more of, "look at these DANGEROUS GAMERS" rather than, "look at these horribly hate-filled people." This is actually one of those situations where the writers probably didn't need to go that over the top. It was already extremely toxic. Instead, the writers are just giving people an excuse to dismiss it because of the cartoonishness and not confront the finger being pointed at them.

    It's law and order SVU not the Wire of course it's gonna be goofy and cartoonish

    Also, Suomynona, do you actually think the supporters of gamergate deal with a use on the same scale as feminist critics of GG? Cause that's actually just wrong. Sorry I am less likely to really give a shit about some dude making rape threats getting doxxed than I am for the person getting those threats against them.

    The whole #gamergate meaning has become completely muddled due to the trolls at 4chan and other sites. But do you really think that every single person who is pro gg is sending out rape threats? From what I can tell it's just the trolls who just want them to look bad. Personally I don't give a shit about gg at all but I still use common sense, just because the more vocal on the Internet under the pro gg name are being douches doesn't mean the others are. There are douchbag bag sexists trolls on both sides doing the same shit making each side think the other is the bad sexists bunch. When trolls do shit like that it pretty much drowns out all other people.

    Both sides are doing the rape shit. So in reality which one is really "the good side"?

    if there were generally level-headed folks who believed in a better goal in all of this, they really should have jumped ship once it devolved majorly into trolling and outright threats. affiliating yourself with gamergate at this point definitely earns you scorn.

    The one that isn't against women entering the gaming world without having to get threatened with rape.

    It's just funny that it took until 2014 for gamers to realize that publications used to sell games are corrupt. Great timing with people attempting to shift the paradigm away from their wants hmmmmmmm? Fuck you if you support gamergate. I don't care if you're one of the good guys. Lol.
