Vox Day, who I already had no respect for, has said on Twitter (which I saw when John Kovalic of Dork Tower retweeted it to point and laugh with a little pity involved) that if you don't support #imacrazymisogynistwhodoesntactuallylikegamesasmuchasilikehatingwomen (shortened to #gamergate for the sake of Twitter's character limit), you're not a gamer, because you've rejected gamer culture, even if you do play games.

I'd like to put my response here, as well as my entire response to the entire foetid movement the hashtag represents: picture me blowing a raspberry for twenty four uninterrupted minutes.

(Seriously, if you actually care about ethics in game journalism, jump ship and get another hashtag. This one has all the wrong targets.)
