The problem here is that nothing is clear. #gamergate is a massive shitshow. The one thing that is quite clear, and this reflects what I am actually reading, is that Anita Sarkeesian has been threatened for doing little more than Critical Theorists such as Adorno, Benjamin, Jameson, Kroker, Mulvey, Irigaray, et al have been doing for years. She is engaging critically with forms of Pop Culture. That there are people out there that feel so threatened by critical theory that they would stoop to issuing death/rape threats is disheartening. To be clear. Very clear. I am not painting ALL gamers with this brush. I don't know enough about Zoe Quinn to take a stance, but the limited reading I have done, is similarly shitty. You can disagree with someone, you can even call someone out on something they have done, but what is with the death/rape threats?
