      Have you heard of this gaming movement in Twitter? I know this is not new, but having read of the issue, it makes me think that people today are fighting over a very useless issue. Nonetheless, I'd just want to hear your thoughts about this one. So, the basic question is, do you think feminism in the world of gaming shouldn't be allowed? Why/Why not?

      Here's a Wikipedia link for those who haven't heard of this >> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamergate_controversy

      Being a girl gamer myself I am actually shocked that feminism in the world of gaming is still happening and I am still against it. I on the odd occasion get comments from guys who realise I am a girl if I am gaming online saying things such as "Shouldn't you be in the kitchen?" and I tend to ignore these comments and just carry on gaming.

      This is the first time I have heard of Gamergate but I must admit after reading the Wiki on it I am shocked at how this came about.

      Ugh, I can't stand this. Anita Saarkisian needs to choke on the next **** she sucks and die. She really is trash and these morons still buy into her bullshit. It's sickening.

      I still really haven't read up on this to see what its really about. I just know if you're a gamer and got an issue with someone just take it to a VS game and kick their a**.
