New to #GamerGate? Check this out.

Before I get started, I wanted to add something up top. The #GamerGate community has been, by a large margin, the best online community I've ever been a part of. These are some of the nicest, funniest, bravest people I've ever known. The community is also the most diverse group of people I've ever spoken to. There are many men, woman, people of every shade and hue, orientation and location around the world.

If anyone has told you that this is a hate group targeting women, they have lied to you. Either intentionally or through ignorance, they have steered you wrong. This is an amazing group of people and I'm honored to be among them every single day. I hope that you get the chance to see this as well. Okay, end rant, begin post...

I wanted to make a post for anyone who might either be new to #GamerGate or who has heard (probably incorrect) things about it in the media. Here are a few videos that should catch you up.

Not much time? Check this out. #GamerGate in 60 seconds.
This is a very good, very quick summary of the #GamerGate movement/revolt. If you see nothing else, watch this.

I was going to compile some interesting reading here, but I think the GamerGate wiki page does a much better job. So go check that out if you want to learn more.

Have any questions or concerns? Head over to Twitter and use the #GamerGate hashtag and ask. There are plenty of people who would love to help you out by answering any questions that you might have.

Update, #GamerGate toys for tots.

So I haven't posted here in a while or done anything on Youtube, I thought I would give an update and share something cool. I've been fairly sick for a while and am still recovering from it. I've been pretty active on Twitter with #GamerGate but that's pretty much it. Hopefully sometime in the next week or so I'll get more active with the blog/Youtube stuff. As for now, I've got something I want you to check out.

If you've been following #GamerGate, then hopefully you're aware that we've raised a good bit of money for charity, despite being called a bunch of bigoted/misogynist/racists by the mainstream media. Right now some of us are trying to raise money for Toys for Tots. It's a good cause, so if you want to get in on it, visit the page right here.

That's all for now. Hopefully I'll post more soon. Have a good one and stay awesome.

The Lie Heard Around the World #GamerGate #NotYourShield

The more people see this, the better. Not that a lot of people will see it here, but any amount is good. I'm really disappointed in MSNBC.
