Why I’m boycotting the #GamerGate #BDSM #GMA

Reuters 4/5 I will not participate in any future GMA or #Gamergate events.

The world needs more #GamerGators and #Gamergaters need to stop.

#GamerGirl — Lainey (@LaineySinger) August 14, 2017 5/5 If you are a woman and feel uncomfortable participating in a GMA event or #GAMA, do not participate.

If you feel uncomfortable in a social event, or you don’t feel safe participating, do NOT attend.

GMA is a public forum.

The #Gamer Gate is not a public discussion, nor is it a conversation.

I am a participant in this conversation.

This event is about #GamerGhazi, not #Gamer Girl.

GAMA is a conversation about ethics in games journalism.

I do not agree with any of the content.

#gamergate is not about #gamer, #gamergirl, or #gamer.

It is about ethical journalism, journalistic integrity, and free speech.

I have no interest in a discussion about ethics and journalistic ethics in the media.

I believe that these issues should be discussed at a public event.

#Gamasutra is not an ethical platform.

I will continue to support #GamerGamers in the games journalism world.

If your personal and professional lives intersect with #Gamer, I will withhold support and solidarity.

Gamasutra has always stood for journalistic integrity.

I support #Glamour and the diversity of its editorial staff.

Glamour Magazine is a family-owned and operated publication that has been at the forefront of women in media and has been a model for women in gaming.

#GirlGamers has been founded by a woman who is the founder of #GAMASGOD and the editor of Glamours #Gamer.

#gamasutra does not condone harassment of women or members of the trans community, and does not tolerate bullying of women, either.

I feel safe attending a GAMA event.

I also do not believe GMA should be a safe space for people who do not share my values.

The message of #GamerGames and #GmaGAM is #Bend the knee to protect the right of people of all genders to be heard.

I stand with #gamer and #girlgamers.
