GamerGate: A monster the industry itself created – Anita Sarkeesian

I agree with Anita Sarkeesian on a lot of things regarding the gaming industry, I’d welcome more diversity and recognise that there is a preponderance for sexist tropes within games, but she can be such a troll sometimes. I think that the following would be more accurate, but it’s not a divisive and likely to cause negative reaction as what she said.

GamerGate is a monster born out of some male gamers thinking that they’re the center of the universe and that the industry should be catering exclusively to their every whim.

Even that would not be entirely accurate as it is only representative of how those who are anti-gamergate view the movement.

Twitter is such a bad medium for these types of discussions as the 140 character limit means that accuracy and subtlety of language is sacrificed in the name of brevity.
