The Clusterf*** that is Gamergate: An outsiders perspective.

I was trying to find a clever #Gamergate related image to use for this post, but I stumbled upon this one, and I liked the simplicity of it. THIS is what gaming is about. People playing games together! Genders be damned. We all love gaming!

I remember being about 13 and at the time I was very small for my age, so I was playing Street Fighter II in the Arcade at a local Pizza joint, and these older kids came in, and I beat a few of them, to which they got really mad, stole my quarters off the machine, and did the classic shirt over head move before… » 10/21/14 12:31am Today 12:31am

First, thank you for sharing your story. It's fascinating to hear about how people from mixed upbringings deal with culture shock both home and abroad.

On a slightly related note, I am so stoked to see more and more mixed ethnicity humans on this planet. I truly feel that the fastest way to squash racism as a whole,… » 10/10/14 12:15pm 10/10/14 12:15pm
