The View of #Gamergate and the Videogame World from Pinch Avenue

Video game industry rocked by #GamerGate — women, children, transsexuals hardest hit, whines the Gray Lady:

For all of us who love games, GamerGate has made it impossible to overlook an ugly truth about the culture that surrounds them: Despite the growing diversity in designers and in games — games about bullying, games that put you in the role of a transgender woman, games about coming out to your parents — there is an undercurrent of “latent racism, homophobia and misogyny,” as the prominent game designer Cliff Bleszinski wrote in March, before GamerGate even began.

The dance of the low-sloping foreheads, in other words.
