    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.

  3. Party City Store Apologizes for Selling Slender Man Costume in Town Where “Slender Man-Inspired” Attack Occurred

    C'mon, you're Party City, not Ricky's!

    Before the creepy Internet meme became associated with some truly upsetting crimes, I think Slender Man would have made an awesome Halloween costume. Hell, in the past he's even been a plush toy! But residents of Waukesha, Wisconsin—where two 12-year-old girls allegedly attacked a classmate last May in an apparent bid to please Slender Man—are understandably unhappy with some of the items at local Party City and Spirit Halloween stores.

It reminds me of the #TrueDetectiveSeason2 meme which was equally entertaining, but not nearly as nerdy. Anyway, recent events have caused it to completely explode and we've captured a measly 21 amusing instances of it we've found online.
