Should I support the obviously morally bankrupt game journalism, or the side whose only tangible achievement was ruining the lives of people within the industry? How about neither? This all makes me want to find a new hobby. Being associated with all this by proxy just because I want to sit down and play a game is a really sickening feeling.
I'm really sick of hearing about it, too, but let's face it: it's not stopping any time soon, and neither are its consequences. Especially since mainstream media with no ties to specialized gaming journalism has started openly depicting the gaming community as sexist as a result. Just because a few ill-intentioned people got their way in the name of a movement that's doing a disastrous job of policing itself.
