|Let's be real, Twitter was a mistake.|
The members of these groups love to harass others that they think don't, "Belong," and if you call them out generally like to claim they have nothing to do with the, "Bad," members of their group and otherwise tell anyone questioning them how the questioners are the hateful bigots. It sickens me when I read about video-game makers I am a fan of or comic-makers I support being harassed by these fools so I thought to help take some heat off these innocent victims and to get a chuckle that during last weekend when I wasn't busy at Wizard World Saint Louis I'd wade into the toxic regions of Twitter, cast-out my fishing lure, and see whom I could, "Hook," the attention of.
|One of of my comments at an especially ignorant tweet by EVS he actually later deleted.|
Notice how when I insult his ilk I actually get more, "Likes," than angry responses.
I will not state names as unlike members of Gamergate and Comicsgate I don't believe in doxxing, but I would like to talk about one person whom I'll simply call, "Lester." If I was reeling in some fish on Twitter-lake then Lester was a prize-winning catch. With a mixture of neigh-incoherent grammar and awful spelling he rambled at me in regards to false-flag operations, QAnon, called me an NPC, insisted transgender people only made-up, ".01%," of the world's population, and alternated between referring to me as, "Farmboy," or, "Bro,"when he wasn't belligerently stating I was playing assorted, "Cards." I assume he meant things like, "The race card," or, "The trans card," but reading his garbled tweets made it a little tricky to understand what his exact point was other than that I was wrong and he didn't, "Hate me, I just hate your kind." When I asked for clarification of what my kind was, he cheekily just said, "SJWs," and refused to elaborate on if there were any other demographics he was coyly trying to admit hating.
Eventually the flow of responses to my initial tweets stopped and the weekend was over. I could only hope my actions made some Gamergate and Comicsgate dummies stop harassing others for even a brief moment, and also was pleased at the increase in follows and readers from the many people who agree with me that Gamergate and Comicsgate are terrible. Anyways, it kept me entertained off-and-on over the weekend and gave me enough material to write this article, so all-in-all I'd say I was productive. Plus, I managed to piss off someone in Gamergate and Comicsgate so much they actually blocked me, which gives me a twisted feeling of pride to think I was able to annoy someone so toxic. I'm weird, I know.
