Emptying the shelves

In the world, there are so many terrible things happening every day.  There are those that are still bought and sold as slaves.  People have their heads cut off just for their religious beliefs.  Some even have their genitals forcibly mutilated just because of where they are born.  Many of these things still need to be righted - Governments that respect the rights of their people encouraged.

Yet, we have roving bands of otherwise seemingly aimless rich white liberals who don't know what to do with their lives.  Instead of doing something productive, they care more about tearing down things around them.

Feminist Frequency doesn't make anything.  They don't produce video games at all.  They don't host tournaments or gaming events.

Simply put : they don't do anything.

Not only that, Feminist Frequency pontificates regarding something it has shown repeatedly via it's own ignorance of gaming culture that it knows nothing about.

As the name suggests, Feminist Frequency is not even designed to be talking to gamers - but rather to feminists.  So ultimately, it's a group of people who don't do anything, talking about something they don't do, to people who don't do it.

That's why, for those just following along, they can stay in business.  Because the people who read and digest their garbage, don't know any better.

It would be funny, but if not for the fact that a gross majority of journalists don't game, and therefore don't know any better either.

For the gaming journos who supposedly do know better, such as Jim Sterling and Adam Sessler, they proved to be wrong.

Where do we go from here? Well, we need to find the honest journalists and stick with them. If there aren't? Well, we got word of mouth and social media - isn't that enough?

More importantly, we have to stick with the producers - in this case the Game developers.  They are the ones that need to be protected from the IGDA and other blacklist abusing forums by supporting them instead. They are the ones that spend countless hours pouring their heart often into these games - only to see them ripped apart by ignorance.

When game journals and developers that ostracized #GamerGate see the money going the other way - then  they will realize that the jig is up.
