Things #GamerGaters Actually Believe, Part 294: Gamers are as oppressed as African Americans in the Jim Crow era

These are some actual Tweets posted yesterday by @FartToContinue, a fairly prominent #GamerGater.

A few minutes with Google image search reveals that two of the images are photoshopped versions of photos documenting or depicting racial segregation in the Jim Crow era in the United States; one of the signs was originally directed at … hippies.

The originals:

GG: “But I don’t want to share my games with women!”
MRA/MGTOW: “But I don’t want to share my rights and privileges with women!”
PUA: “But I don’t want to share enthusiastic consent with women!”

Crissa: True, but there are always going statistical outliers out there. What I meant is, there’s no societal, systematic bias against gamers and gaming in general.

Heck, just the fact that video game development by AAA publishers is a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR industry should be enough to quash the idea that gamers are a persecuted minority.

OK, I have to know: What facilities are actually polling people to see if they are gamers, and then segregating the gamers? Really. I NEED TO KNOW!!!!

How else am I supposed to take my business there? The feminazi cabal has failed to send out their weekly newsletter listing the approved businesses that are currently following the gamer-segregation rules.

Seriously, though, just what discrimination do these people believe they are facing? How, exactly, are they being disenfranchised? I can’t even begin to feel sympathy for them, until I see at least ONE compelling case of disenfranchisement, due to being a Gamer.

Why, they don’t get to sleep with cheerleaders, and that’s TOTALLY just because they are ‘Gamers’ (and not because people who have a particular set of interests, such as athletics, fashion and social dynamics are likely to be interested in other people who share those interests).

More and more, I’m coming to believe that any Gaters who were actually outcasts in high school had that status for some reason other than being a gamer.

Maybe having an outright toxic personality has a social downside?

Robert: I’ve said in other fora that gators are the people you only tolerated so you’d have a full table for D&D but who were otherwise toxic fuckwads that everyone avoided.

As for the hippy and hair thing,

I actually had someone yell, in anger and disgust, “CUT YOUR HAIR, HIPPY!”
I looked both ways wanting to find the hippy, then I realized that I was wearing, jeans sandles, and a vintage shirt…
