Aaron Sorkin said this about The Social Network, but I think it’s especially relevant with gamergate (via brainstatic)
mehhh but this totally erases the fact that women are now and always have been in the tech industry though? like seriously y’all, we are here. i had to put up with useless gamergate-esque pissbabies in college and i’m sure i will in the future too. i get what he’s saying and it’s true that gamers are angry in a very specific, misogynistic way. but it’s not that we’re not here. we are. we’re just outnumbered, and often spend our time fighting to prove our worth rather than hanging out on /b/ or wherever, honing our DDOS and doxxing skills.
Also Aaron Sorkin is one of the last dudes who should be talking about deeply misogynistic groups of people.
