#gamergate anti-Semitism antifeminism creepy douchebaggery dude you've got no fucking idea what you're talking about entitled babies harassment literal nazis lying liars misogyny straw feminists straw futrelle

Fan mail, from some white supremacist

Me writing this blog (Reenactment).
Me writing this blog (Reenactment).

As the guy behind a long-running blog devoted to, as my tagline notes, tracking and mocking some of the worst pieces of crap on the internet, I’ve come to expect a good deal of criticism from the aforementioned worst pieces of crap on the internet.

What still surprises me is that they almost never criticize me for anything I’ve actually said or done. Instead, they attack my weight and my fondness for cats. And then, evidently having run out of true things to say about me, they move on to attacking me for things they’ve conjured up in their own brain about me, most of which bear little or no resemblance to the truth.

Last week, I got an email with the urgent subject “OMG OMG ITS YOU!!!” from someone calling himself TF2leplayer. The email consisted of a rather weirdly elaborate fantasy portrayal of what, I guess, he imagines my life to be. Or, at the very least, what he would prefer to think my life consists of.

EDIT: So it turns out this dude’s email is a slightly reworked copypasta of a 4chan-related meme. Not being a channer, I’m not up on all the 4chan memes. When 4chan copypasta is virtually indistinguishable from the kind of “fan mail” I get every day, well that doesn’t say much for the originality of my assorted critics.

There he is. There he goes again

Look everyone he shitposted again! Isn’t he just the funniest guy around?? Oh my god.

I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room giggling like a little girl as you once again type your little “MUHSOGGYKNEES” up.

I do actually have adequate lighting.

Or maybe you don’t even do that, maybe you’re such a disgusting pile of dog shit that you actually steal shit off of Buzzfeed and Polygon.

Uh, what? I guess this would be a stinging insult if I actually did steal my stuff from either of these two sites, but since I don’t it kind of falls a teensy bit flat.

So it has no more effect on me than if he accused me of, I dunno, shoplifting Whitney Houston CDs from … I dunno, wherever they sell CDs these days. Do they sell CDs these days?

Oh we all know the issue, the uh oppressed minorities isn’t it?

Uh, I thought we’d already determined that I was “typing up MUHSOGGYKNEES.”

I imagine you, little shit, laughing so hard as you as you come up with biased articles, you drop your Doritos onto the floor.

As fond as I am of Doritos, I can’t really eat them regularly. Too much MSG. Gives me headaches.

But its ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh that’s right, did I fail to mention? You live with your mother!

Ah, the classic “you live with your mother” ploy! Now, there are plenty of people who live with their parents, for assorted reasons. I’m not one of them. So, again, this insult misses me completely. And it’s pretty damn uninspired.

Kick it up a notch, dude. Why not “you live in a poop house that is made of poop and that is also filled with poop, also the furniture is made of poop, and instead of a TV you watch a poop!”

I came up with that one off the top of my head.

You’re a fat fucking fuck up and she’s probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all god damn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on Tumblr posting about white men and trannies.

Er, what? I haven’t posted anything on Tumblr since the glory days of Confused Cats Against Feminism last year. Which by the way was quite a popular little blog in its day, though as an essentially one-joke blog it was not one destined to last. Did I mention that it got written up in like dozens of publications? T-shirts are still available!

Just imagine this, she had you and then she thought you were going to be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand, and then you became a FEMINIST.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure my mom never thought I was going to be an astronaut. Moms can sense these things. I don’t really give off much of an “astronaut” vibe.

A pathetic triggered fag of a FEMINIST. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear. She can’t even talk try to you because all you say is “HAVE YOU HEARD OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR ANITA SARKEESIAN?”.

It’s weird, this assumption the #GamerGaters have that being a feminist requires that one worship Anita Sarkeesian. I mean, she seems cool, her videos are pretty good, and the fact that she gets endless harassment for them is fucking appalling, but I’m pretty sure I and most other feminists spend a lot less time thinking about Anita Sarkeesian than your typical #GamerGater does. She’s not actually the central figure in world feminism.

#GamerGaters and other antifeminists spend a lot of time and energy railing against feminists, but they know so little about feminism that they can’t even get the stereotypes right.

It’s as if I started mocking Italians for their love of lutefisk and their excessive flamenco dancing. I would get odd looks, and no one would actually be insulted.

You became a parody of your own self. And that’s all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same topic that he’s done a million times now.

Again, I have more than adequate lighting.

Oh, and that’s all you’ll ever be.

That turns out to be a somewhat ironic ending to this weird little missive.

Because when I click on the email address of Mr. TF2leplayer, I am directed to a rather sparse Google+ profile. The only thing of note I find there is a conversation Mr. TF2leplayer had in a YouTube comments section a year ago.

Mr. T started off with a complaint:pewtieAnd then this conversation ensued:

pew2
After another commenter suggested that Mr. T should be “tortured and raped” — this is from a YouTube comment section, after all — our hero responded with a screed accusing PewDiePie of being a “fag” who lives in his mother’s basement.
pew3

I’m just going to cut it off there, because it gets worse, much worse.

Now all this — what I’ve quoted and what I haven’t — doesn’t actually tell me anything about PewDiePie, video gamer and YouTube personality.

But it does tell me something about Mr. T. Namely, that he likes to go around accusing people he doesn’t like of things that aren’t true. And that he especially likes accusing people of being gay and living with their mother (not that there’s anything wrong with it). That’s not even as funny as the old standby: “You’re ugly and your mother dresses you funny.”

Seems like a sort of pointless and pathetic way to spend your life.

But what do I know, sitting n my room in the dark, giggling like a little girl and waiting for my mother to bring me another bag of Doritos?

MOOOOMMMMM!!!

DORITOS!! NOW!!!!!

She’s not actually the central figure in world feminism.

#GamerGaters and other antifeminists spend a lot of time and energy railing against feminists, but they know so little about feminism that they can’t even get the stereotypes right.

An argument I had with a former friend about GamerGate had him claim that Zoe Quinn was a “prominent activist” in feminist circles, which was a surprise to me – all I knew about her was that she made a videogame dealing with depression and got harassed over it, then her vindictive and disingenuous boyfriend decided to wage a revenge porn campaign while lying it was about “ethics in journalism” right after.

Of course, he seemed to spend a lot of time looking at Tumblr and Twitter for “evidence” (i.e. personal blogs or singular posts from random, anonymous people) for this despite apparently hating everything about those places (I don’t use either, for a number of reasons, and get pretty fucking sick of seeing people complain about them on Facebook).

It really bewilders me how much energy they spend getting angry over something they dislike, almost for the sake of it, than just ignore it and be all the happier not bothering. Moreso when these same people admonish anyone enraged over a legitimate social justice issue as being “over-sensitive” and deflect it further by claiming there are “more important things going on” in the world.

Maybe it’s just me, but if mistreatment of women and ethnic minorities are “lesser problems” while fuming over YouTube videos or the Australian divisions of Target and Walmart not stocking copies of GTAV anymore (even though they don’t live there and are totally unaffected by such) – you’re priorities are all kinds of fucked up. You certainly lack the authority to go around proclaiming what is or isn’t “important”…

It’s telling that their first defense, when it comes to harassment, is to say SJWs are “just as bad” than admit harassment is simply wrong. Whenever they describe their supposed harassment, it’s so exaggerated that you can help but think they’ve obfuscated a rationally-stated argument due to a twisted perception or totally made up as a rhetorical “gotcha!” (forgetting the idiom that “two wrongs don’t make a right”). It’s weird for them to demand credence when questioned – as they have no issue dismissing victims of harassment as being falsified (even when they prove such). It is also odd that they want everyone in their group to be considered a special little snowflake (because they want validation and thus be enabled further), yet nonetheless grossly generalize everyone in a group they dislike and assume a lot of shit that’s just not true.

I’ve heard he has turned a corner and is doing much better with this as of late, but PewDiePie does not exactly have a stellar SJW track record in terms of his humor. I mean, of all the people to rant all “white knights and ess jay double ewes” about…

No kidding. I’m not a fan of his (I kind of liked his videos, but he’s kind of a one-trick pony when it comes down to it), and I’ve also noticed that a lot of other prominent YouTubers do have their slip-ups as well. We’re all human, and no single person knows everything about social justice, etc.

But, seriously, I think our dear, dear friend TF2leplayer really needs to sit down and talk to someone about all this projection and anger he’s got going on here.

He’s lashing out at people who are obviously more successful than he is. :/

I think what Zoe Quinn did at first that really offended people was creating safe game jams. By “safe,” the events had a strict 50:50 gender ratio, they tried to be welcoming to minorities and people with disabilities, and they had codes of conduct against harassment, bragging, and not being helpful. For some reason that infuriated Libertarians (who overlap with White Nationalists, btw) in the gaming and tech industry, and (at least my theory is) someone realized getting teenagers and gamerbros on 4chan offended by Depression Quest was a good way of getting a cyber mob to come after her.

Then Eron Gjoni realized he could incite the cyber mob to get revenge on her for breaking up with him. The “ethics in video game journalism” phrase was made up so that people could plausibly deny malicious intent and claim that writing about Quinn’s personal life is legitimate criticism and not harassment. So “ethics in XYZ” is an Orwellian doublespeak code phrase for harassing people.

I can’t imagine what an angry person you would have to be to waste your time insulting people with whom you disagree. There are lots of times I think horrid thoughts about a person I find despicable, but I don’t waste my life constructing elaborate missives, nor do I spend much energy imagining their lives at all. I read an article, not the horrible nature of the individual, make a mental note that that person is horrid and move on. The next time I encounter their horrific thoughts, I think “I’m not surprised. That’s the horrible person that said/did those horrid things.”

There’s a guy who left a company I work for under something of a cloud – I forget the exact reason, but I think it involved personally insulting the CEO over what turned out to be a misunderstanding, and by the time that was cleared up the hole that he’d dug for himself was so deep that he’d rendered himself unemployable.

You’d have thought he’d want to keep quiet about that, but for months now he’s been badmouthing the company across multiple social networks at every possible opportunity, concocting increasingly eccentric conspiracy theories as to why he was let go. To say that my colleagues and I are unfazed by this would be a fairly massive understatement – even when he started leaking private emails the only repercussions were on him, because who would hire someone who clearly can’t be trusted to keep confidential information private? (I don’t believe he’s managed to land a followup job in the same industry, although that’s doubtless our fault as well.)

And I suspect a lot of this stems from the fact that he too is an exceptionally angry individual – I still vividly remember the time he sent me a load of abusive emails (about a dozen overnight) about a situation that wasn’t actually happening, and I was struck by the fact that he made no upfront attempt to confirm this before launching into a full-on thermonuclear assault. Which is the kind of behaviour that’s always seemed utterly counterproductive to me. In fact, I suspect he sent a dozen emails in the first place because he was FURIOUS that I didn’t respond immediately – on account of it being 2am and me being asleep.

They spend so much time and energy because it works. It punishes people who say or do stuff that offends neoreactionary and conservative Libertarian types and it makes people shut up about social justice issues.

Well the lesson here is, don’t go off on tirades like this where all your criticism is based on shit you pull out of your ass as you go along. Because the best case scenario is, it turns out you are right about everything and they say “whoa, how did he know that?”, but literally every other case scenario is you end up looking like a flailing jackass.

Not really. I mean it may have worked in some cases, it has driven some people away from the industry, but in the long term it’s massively backfired on them by drawing attention to their hatred and helping make other voices in gaming more visible. I had never heard of Zoe Quinn or Brianna Wu before GG drew attention to them.

I think that was just Mark saying “I think men should be able to hit back if a woman attacks them, but obviously no-one should be hitting anyone.” which is something I agree with wholeheartedly. If you’re assaulted by someone, you should be able to fight back.

He was floundering a little with the wording, but I think that’s what he was getting at. I remember people on tumblr talking about it, but then I watched the video for myself. I can understand why Jack would edit that bit out of his video though, it was an awkward conversation.

I also follow Jack on tumblr, and he’s actually a very nice guy. He doesn’t obviously know everything about social justice (and let’s face it, no one does), but he’s still a good person in my book.

OH NOES!!! THAT’S…actually very thoughtful and considerate. Something I’d totally support as, honestly, I’d love more representation in entertainment in general. I’m fucking bored of every character being a brown-haired white guys who have all the personality of a soggy paper bag filled with mulch.

Then Eron Gjoni realized he could incite the cyber mob to get revenge on her for breaking up with him. The “ethics in video game journalism” phrase was made up so that people could plausibly deny malicious intent and claim that writing about Quinn’s personal life is legitimate criticism and not harassment. So “ethics in XYZ” is an Orwellian doublespeak code phrase for harassing people.

I think one of the things that made him appealing to so many people (based on my own personal experience dealing with such cretinous shits) is because he knew many of these guys would respond to the “woman done me wrong” narrative. It makes sense, as those people felt disparaged (not that it was warranted) by women for some reason or another (generally because they expected to get laid and weren’t) – when it wasn’t the typical gate-keeping “they’re trying to ruin what I love!” hyper-defensiveness.

It’s been used in songs, novels, and movies – the subtext is always the same: when a man makes a mistake, it is minor and can be easily fixed, but a woman doing similar is somehow far worse for it and beyond repair. Arthurian legends are a good example – as Lancelot, despite committing adultery with Guinevere, is still able attain some form of forgiveness through sacrifice while the Queen’s transgression is somehow one that cannot be repented.

You know that old saying, “possession is nine-tenths of the law”? Well, with them, it’s projection, and it’s all ten.

It’s the saying that usually annoys me, but that’s because people I’ve known to use it don’t seem to understand what it means – it’s a talking point they throw around to sound smarter than they actually are, similar to saying “no smoke without fire.”

Makes perfect sense that the people we’re talking about would erroneously apply it to themselves. It’s common with comicbook fans, who often have a false sense of ownership over characters and works they do not have any actual stake in (besides the emotional kind, apparently).

It’s quite nauseating to talk to a comicbook fan who claims that film adaptations are “cultural appropriation” of things they just happened to enjoy a lot. Hell, I’d go as far to say they’re some of the most ignorant yet petulant people in geekdom next to these elitist “hardcore gamers” who think any attempt at inclusivity is part of some vast conspiracy straight from Alex Jones’ asshole.

I agree with Paradoxical, Mark was floundering but he did bring his point back to “nobody should be hitting anybody”. Which is true. Jack meanwhile did the whole “when men can hit women that’s equality” line which has a point (especially regarding self defence), but the context of it reminded me too much of those creepy internet assholes whose FIRST thought at the mention of gender equality is “I can hit a girl and not get in trouble.” Which is just…what the fuck dude, why is violence your first go-to when you imagine what equality looks like?!?

Mark has also made plenty of highly feminist friendly remarks in the recent past, even a video mocking those “Nice Guys” that we all know and er, love. Jack…could use improvement. But I’d put that The Forest fiasco down to maybe a degree of ignorance – Jack himself admitted he knows little about feminism.

In short, I currently hold Mark in higher regard right now but I’m sure I’ll warm up to Jack again soon. I can’t stay mad at Mark, he’s so awesome. <3 <3 <3 <3 (senpaiiiiii! )
