I know I've been talking a lot about GamerGate lately, but it's my blog and I'm not sorry.

If you want to know all about it in a form that's not a long impassioned rant about what I saw and instead is rather coherent with links and shit for evidence, or if you want something to throw into a few choice faces, I came upon this last night:

What We Talk About When We Talk About GamerGate

It has most of what you need to shut GamerGaters down. By which I mean, to make them go straight to calling you a cunt or a feminazi or making up your entire existence to make GamerGate look bad or whatever. You can't really shut them down, only strip away the thin veneer of "reason" to uncover the snarling misogynist underneath.

Anyway, it's in my bookmarks list now.

What I really want to do is delve deep into the places where GamerGate, whatever it is, operates on any kind of semi-organized level. I want to go spelunking, if you will. I'm still trying to adjust to a rather busy schedule, but I'll find time for it soon. That's a promise.
