Gamergate Is Running Out of Heroes
"I've said it before—creating something new and putting it online is an act of bravery, and it exposes you to a tremendous amount of criticism. At any level of popularity, you deal with kneejerk contrarians, self-entitled fans, and anonymous haters—the bread and butter of the Gamergate movement."

The culture wars are back, and this time, everyone can win
"Now we are in the midst of a new culture war, in which fans and creators battle each other and sometimes themselves. It is being waged over whether or not culture is political, and if so, what its politics ought to be and how they might be expressed. That conflict has also diffused beyond the academic, religious and political institutions who were major players in earlier convulsions. Today it is wildly fragmented in a way that suggests vigorous and ongoing debates rather than an easy resolution."

As individuals, communities and corporate entities, do we still lack the will, despite seeing the fruits of apathy and averted eyes?"

Stop supporting Gamergate
"The enemy of the Gamergate supporter is the so-called 'social justice warrior,' which is a pejorative commonly used to describe basically anyone who feels empathy — a trait that sickens narcissists who believe that listening to another human being and taking their feelings seriously is a form of defeat."
