What is #GamerGate currently ruining?
Everything about #GamerGate has been, as mefi would say, super inside baseball, so I set up a website to show everyone what misogynist crap they're currently doing and stuck a blog on the back with brief summaries and links to people who have covered it more in depth. It's very inspired by single-serve sites even though I've added a lot more to it by now. About the project.

Totally separate of the mission and content of the site, I also really, really like the design; both the look and the concept of single-serve-but-really-has-actual-background-elsewhere are great.

This is pretty fantastic. And I almost want to say brave? I mean there's so much crap to wade through, I know I'd personally burn out in anger really quickly. Thank you for doing this!

I'm glad you all like it! I think I'm not burning out because I sort of have to see this stuff anyway if I want to keep being interested in the things I'm interested in. I've been following Zoe Quinn's work since I read about her doing cool biohacking stuff, and I do a lot of game writing myself, though I haven't managed to get much of an audience for that yet. Basically, if I want to keep doing what I'm doing, which is writing about feminism and games (among other things) on the internet, being successful at it will mean dealing with this shit, so I might as well do what I can to get it some sunlight for people who would find watching the entire clusterfuck completely exhausting.
