    The legacy of Gamergate and its corresponding WikiTruth live on!
    This what happens when you hire feminist bloggers to report on current events.

    The hell are you on about? All I see is a chick who took online bullies way too serious, and probably needed a serious snuggle.

    How is this a 'GamerGate' issue? I thought #GG was about corruption of game journalists, not gender issues.

    The WikiTruth regarding GG is that it was ENTIRELY about an entirely male/neckbeard anonymous harassing women out of video games and creating an atmosphere of muhsoggyknees. The RationalWiki entry is even less flattering.

    TL;DR: If if isn't being reported by women or wikipedia, it's not true.

    I would've filed it under "Bloggers Masquerading As News Reporting Professionals", but no such distinction in the forum exists.

    Thank you for your input, Likey. <3

    You don't need a final verdict to know why she killed herself, the fact that someone sent her this mean message on the internet is sufficient to award this brave woman the Golden Fire-hose.

    She sounded like the right kind of person to be in a high stress dangerous line of work. Maybe they said mean things to her so she would blubber and they could use her tears to put out fires.






    This is fake, right?

    Seriously, a 31 year old female kills herself of harassment. The stupid bitch could have sued Fairfag County and bought a tropical island.

    There was a wave of people around last Fall who declared victory and decided to quite GG'ing.
    For the most part, I'd call it a win. Multiple SOCJUS journospro got shitcanned, Gawker got a punch in the dickwallet, and the right-minded internet at large was alerted to the dangers of SOCJUS. If you can call it a negative side effect, years from now, leftards will be misrepresenting what actually happened, in an attempt to rewrite history.

    TL;DR: Those who saw it go down will know what really happened and it'll just be a shibboleth for finding who is a retard and who is level-headed.

    She was a paramedic in a large county, I'm pretty sure countless 24hour shifts of abused/neglected children, downgraded at station trauma calls, Slow as fuck Blue calls, screaming family while drilling an I/O, ect ect ect
    had nothing to do with this.

    It was probably over something equally dumb but they decided to blame the internet.

    Inconvenient realities of women in a man's job? Better blame "the patriarchy."

    I was wondering if she was a volunteer firefighter that only responded to radio calls. Paramedic on shift duty brings a whole new level to this whole fiasco. Also, fuck off New York Post, you wanna bring light to a person being torn down by a terrible, thankless job, do it right.
    Edit: also, I think you just recounted alot of terrible calls you've experienced, sorry man.

    I did that shit for a month before saying fuck it. If you ever need to lose all faith in humanity while simultaneously living in poverty, EMS is the way to go.
    I got my certification on the Army's dime as a springboard for after active duty but my poor guard troops are all invested in this nonsense. Cock suckers work 60-70 hours a week just to break 40k that after paying student loans and re-cert fees is nothing.
    One weekend a month I get to hear all the horror stories, and I'm all like "Thank God my preceptor is bang'n, clinicals are soooooo hard hue hue hue".
