  3. Adobe Now Distancing Itself From GamerGate Bullies After Following Their Anti-Bullying Demands

    My brain hurts.

    "Gamergate is misogyny!" "Gamergate is about ethics!" Gamergate is... confusing. I don't think anyone can deny that last one, least of all Adobe, which became the most recent company to unwittingly get caught up in the controversy.

Hey, you try focusing on gaming with Michelle Hurst AKA Miss Claudette watching.

  9. “Actually, It’s About Ethics In Games Journalism” Meme Gives GamerGate The Respect It Deserves

    ACTUALLY IT'S ABOUT ETHICS

    GamerGate is misogynist harassment hiding behind a thinly-veiled cry for "ethics!", and anyone wanting a real discussion about ethical problems in games journalism should have removed themselves from the hashtag weeks ago. Or, you know, started questioning huge companies instead of female indie devs. As we mentioned on Friday in our last roundup, the Tumblr Actually, It's About Ethics In Games Journalism recognizes the preposterousness of the GamerGate mantra, and made it into a wonderful meme.
