Serial offenders plague Twitter boingboing.net/2014/11/14/ser…
This is a series of hopefully semi-regular guest posts that I will be making on my wife Amy’s site Very Much So…, a UK parenting and lifestyle blog.
I’m now thirty weeks into this adventure of fatherhood and it is probably about time that I expressed my thoughts and feelings about the experience. Hopefully this will be a semi-regular feature, but first a little bit about me. My name is Matt and I’m married to Amy, my best friend and partner in crime, and dad to Lyra. I am a thirty-something IT Systems Administrator specialising in server virtualisation (I blog about it here), voracious reader, avid film fan and used to be a cinema manager.
Becoming a dad has been the most amazing and daunting thing I have had the privilege of doing. Lyra has given me new perspective and enabled me to see and enjoy the world anew. The flip side of the coin is the incredible responsibility that I now feel. She is wholly dependent on me and Amy for everything and like all new parents you can’t help but worry about whether you are doing it right. Is she warm enough? Is she sleeping right? Are we feeding her a nutritious and varied diet? However overall the joy she has brought into my life far outweighs the worry. I have loved being a father from the very second the midwife handed her to me and now cannot imagine my life without her.
GamerGate is a monster the industry itself created by telling male gamers they’re the center of the universe & catering to their every whim.

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.
