Flawless Feminist Victory

After appearing before the UN with Anita, Zoe Quinn is finding even more success and recognition with a memoir to be published next September and has given the rights for the MOVIE to Pascal Pictures.

This is the ultimate confirmation of the manifestation of GamerGate's self-fulfilling prophecy. They harass women, then when said women get media attention, they claim that the woman only did the thing she's getting harassed about and/or only complained about the harassment for the media attention. This claim fuels more harassment until the woman gets a movie deal. Thanks?

Boing Boing put it best:

The irony is rich and delicious. A favorite claim of Gamergate is that the people they have targetted for nonstop rape and death threats had deliberately set out to be terrorized because of the riches they'd receive. This asinine claim and the inexcusable behavior it inspired has actually made the absurd prophecy come true: by behaving in such a terrible way, Gamergate has made celebrities out of its targets, building them a mainstream platform from which to tell their stories, while Gamergate continues to fester in obscurity in the Internet's dankest sewers.

And as Dr. Cox would say, "This is so very delicious and filling I don’t think I’m going to be able to eat the rest of the evening. In fact, I honestly don’t think I can have one more bite of your painful humiliation. I find I’m just a little stuffed."

Zoe Quinn will take her enormous personal success to go, though.
