Why GamerGate Is Destined To Fail

deathofgamergate:

What Is GamerGate?

It’s the Tea Party of video games. And Zoe Quinn is its Benghazi.

Okay, But What Is GamerGate Really?

GamerGate has been disingenuously framed as a grassroots campaign of gamers “concerned with the quality and integrity of video game journalism.” The campaign is, in…

Our very own nillia painted this gorgeous piece using watercolors and gouache.  Not only did it make one bidder very happy in the Otakon Art Show, but we also made it into a digital print so everyone else can share in the Sailor Moon love.
Sailor Moon is pretty hard not to love lately. <3

I&#8217;m adding to my pokemon bookmarks with my absolute favorite, Lucario!  Let me know if you think this one should be a full-sized print!

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.


"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"



Except the people reading the paper are seated and stationary and aren&#8217;t prioritizing their own entertainment over not causing sidewalk problems for others?
This isn&#8217;t a black and white issue and sometimes hoards of people walking around buried in their phones IS a legit problem. It really bothers me to see people knee-jerk react to this kind of criticism and getting so obviously defensive, instead of acknowledging that both sides of this argument probably have a point, that there IS some value to removing yourself from your phone every now and then and experiencing things firsthand.  Or at least watching where you&#8217;re going. :\
Just because you personally have embraced and enjoy a certain kind of lifestyle doesn&#8217;t mean that it has no broader problems when applied to thousands of others, and it certainly doesn&#8217;t mean that it&#8217;s immune from criticism.  I take neither stance on this argument, and am by no means anti-tech.  I use my devices every day and my life is very much enhanced by them.  I also (mostly) walk down the street without checking on them.  This kind of strawman arguing is ineffectual and immature.  OP is also a little extreme but they DO have a point, and you&#8217;d make a much stronger point of your own if you could acknowledge that.

Remember Connecticon!? Yeah, that was good times! Thank you everyone who came to see me and Ash!

In our downtime from the con, we hung out with our friends thefirstmccloud, nillia, and juudisu.  We visited Satan’s Kingdom, which is apparently a place you go tubing! I wish I could post pictures of us tubing, but I didn’t want to bring my camera into the river and my bathing suit is also disintegrating in unfortunate places, so you’ll have to use your imagination.

I’ve gone river tubing once before, but it was so long ago I barely remember it.  This time we went right after a huge rain, so the river was very high and moving very fast. It was was fun/terrifying (mostly fun though) and I would love to do it again.

I have nothing to add but one simple statement:

I love our friends.  <3

CTCon weekend was a blast from start to finish. Mostly. There were stress times but those are par for the con course. The rest of the time it was a blast and this was surefire evidence of good times. I’d do it again in a heartbeat, high-speeds and all. <3

Haha dang I <3 you guys.  Let’s all go over a waterfall together.

Based on the family portrait by Cory Loftis.   It seemed like common sense.

I’m planning to print this on a large canvas to auction at Otakon.

The close up of Anna’s face is the painting at 100%, making this love letter to Disney the largest digital painting I have ever done.  I don’t usually submit so many close-ups, but I just love the gorgeous textures provided by Art Rage.

Expect more art of this nature, so if you like this, please follow!

I don’t think enough people are currently appreciating just how much time and effort went into this wonderful, detailed painting.  LOOK AT IT. <3

Hi! I'd like to challenge your gym!

That’s great!  I just need you to challenge me with your actual Tumblr account (not anonymously), or by league rules I can’t accept. So go on and do that, because I’d love to battle you!

Give me some to train some more and I'll rechallenge you. Good match, great defense and drawing me thin.

Thank you man, I’ll happily accept again.  Nice team yourself, very scary volcarona! :’D
