GamerGate and Culture War PoliticsI can't not say anything about this anymore. I've resisted in the past because I've had a lot of emotion invested in it, and I also haven't been able to fully define my feelings on the matter. Now I have, but I'll try to keep things short and to the point.GamerGate and Culture War Politics by eviltomp
I don't like being neutral for neutrality's sake. I will stand and defend my beliefs.
Fundamentally, I side with GamerGate, and I feel that the core of the problem is with ""social justice warriors"". Of course, this doesn't tell the whole story.
BACKGROUND OF BELIEFS:
Growing up as a minority, growing up in San Francisco, growing up in the post-Civil Rights, post-Second-wave Feminism America, growing up with Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street has taught me a lot about the value of equality. That is---among other things---we should judge people based on the content of their character, and not by the color of their skin (or gender, sexuality, etc). In particular, I want to believe that any time I'VE been treated poorly,
I'm a 25-year-old who currently resides in the Phoenix area (until recently, I used to live in central NJ). These days, I spend most of my time partaking in glorious activities like sleeping in, hating myself immensely, and wondering where I went wrong in life. I sometimes make attempts at drawing animal people and such. If I manage to draw something that I find isn't completely terrible, I'll probably even upload it here!|
Admittedly, I'm not a very chatty individual, as some of my friends may tell you - I'm a man of few words and am slow to trust others. I hope you don't take it personally.
Nevertheless, anyone is welcome to comment on my drawings. I take my work seriously and am always looking to improve, so if there's anything about my art you really like and would like to see more of, or if you think there's something that you think I could stand to improve on, then feel free to let me know. I may not always like what you have to say and I often won't respond, but rest assured, I will read and listen to all your comments.
I also like playing video games. I've got a bunch of games and consoles, though most of my game time is currently spent on my 360. If you want to add me, my gamertag is the same as username here: SilverMelee.
