The Five Creepiest #GamerGate Fan Art Tributes to Christina Hoff Sommers, aka Based Mom (With Bonus Annoying Gif)

She's not the messiah's mom
She’s not the messiah’s mom

GamerGaters sure do love their Based Mom! Christina Hoff Sommers, as you may or may not know, is a libertarian think-tanker who’s been grinding away at feminism for two decades, while still, rather perversely, claiming to be feminist. Though not a video gamer herself, she’s jumped aboard the GamerGate train, and GamerGaters have repaid her interest in their little crusade with interest, anointing her their “Based Mom” and talking about her with weird reverence.

That is, when they’re not making creepy fan art about her. Today, five of the most disturbing examples I’ve found so far.

1) Virgin Based Mom, in which an old publicity shot of Sommers is pasted onto a picture of the Virgin Mary to very creepy effect.

2) Based Waifu, in which Sommers is reinvented as an anime character.

3) Mass Effect Mom, in which Sommers becomes a Space Marine.

4) Whatever the hell this is.

5) Perfect Mom. And last but certainly not least, this tweet. No image manipulation here, just a guy expressing his opinion about a women. His really, really creepy opinion.

BONUS: The world’s most annoying Christina Hoff Sommers animated gif.  Sommers finishes her ironically titled “Factual Feminist” YouTube videos, which are neither factual nor feminist, with an annoyingly contrived tagline: “Check your facts, not your privilege.” Now you can watch her smugly repeat this phrase over and over without end. Which is, I think, the very definition of hell.

Warning: Excessive viewing of this gif may give you nightmares; its smugness is that powerful.

H/T — GamerGhazi, for pointing out the Virgin Mom

Oh, somebody writing disparagement about GamerGate knows nothing about gamer culture. What a surprise.

I thought all the “gamut broZz” were totes tired of being sterotyped as Mountain Dew swilling, Dorito munching asswipes, but I guess Jared is all about embracing the stereotypes.

Way to neg us seven months after the fact, bruh. Yup, you got us. None of us know what Doritos or Mountain Dew are. [/sarcasm]

I’ve heard of l’esprit d’escalier, but this isn’t it.

And I, for one, am appalled, appalled I tell you, that none of you know anything about “gamer culture”. You all lied to me. How very dare you. [/extra sarcasm]

You can call a shitty Photoshop collage “culture” all you want, but it’s nether live bacteria, nor does it contribute anything to society as a whole beyond the feeling of collective embarrassment we feel now.

And of course CHS knows allllll about gamer culture doesn’t she? Or, alternatively it just doesn’t matter that she wouldn’t recognize a video game if one bit her on the nose because she pats gamerbros on the head and reassures them that they’ll always be Based Mom’s speshul widdle boys, yes dey will!

Jared, did you check to see if “based mom” herself knew about that meme, because GGers seem to think she’s qualified to offer opinions about all this despite not being a gamer at all much less a REAL GAMER. (Same question applies with Milo.)

And Roosh V, who’s running a gaming site despite not being a gamer.

Don’t you guys constantly go on and on about how Anita Sarkeesian’s “not a real gamer” and thus can’t say shit about games?

Why don’t you go shit on Roosh? Oh, wait, because he’s a dude, says he’s into games (despite really not being so), and he pats you on the head and tells you all your fee-fees about the evil feeemales are all right and you’re still his favorite.

Don’t forget Mytheos Holt, whose only connection to gaming is a name that sounds like he should be giving out sidequests in Dragon Age.

So, wait, are you saying that (a) all the negative stereotypes about gamers are true, or that (b) the poorly photoshopped mishmash of brands and Christina Hoff Sommers is completely comprehensible and self-explanatory?

Because neither option (a) or option(b) are true.

@sparky: A is true if you consider that “true gamers” are fond of the word “ironic”, despite not knowing what the fuck it means.

I’ve heard of l’esprit d’escalier, but this isn’t it.

This is more l’esprit d’down the stairs, across the foyer, out the door, down the walk, through the gate, and in the cab.

What do you even mean, she’s correct? About something specific, or just, like… everything forever?

Damn, bro, you’re slow. Not just because this thread’s a year and a half old, but because she’s since been kicked out of #GoobleGobble for walking out of goosestep lockstep with Breitbart. Update your talking points.

WWTH: Because GGers have to constantly remind us that they’re “relevant”, apparently.

Christina Hoff Sommers uses skewed statistics to promote the free market and spread misinformation about welfare and socialism. People have confronted her for doing this on her Twitter, and she completely ignores them. She is every bit as guilty of being a manipulative, agenda pushing fraud as the liberal feminists she incessantly bitches about. Yes, she does bitch, she just disguises it and presents it in a well spoken way that gives the impression of being thoughtful, balanced and fair, when in reality she’s a petty, deceitful old whinge who has been using her “feminist” status to propagate conservatism for a long time now.

We will be considering not only the raw physical sexiness of our Waifu, but also their personality, and how much someone would actually enjoy being with them in real life.
