One of the many things I find funny about the #GamerGate hoopla is that many of the people who support it, also support the notion that feminist critique of games is ~stifling creativity~ in the industry and is ~censorship~.
The first reason why that’s bullshit is that feminist criticism is just another school of thought. Feminists aren’t forcing other game developers to do anything, because we can’t. We can just posit why certain trends are harmful and, if they happen to be developers themselves, create their own games that are less harmful and more inclusive.
The second, very huge reason why that’s bullshit is that those people don’t bat an eyelash, and even participate in violently harassing and threatening women in the industry (including developers!) with the goal of silencing them.
Apparently, actually stifling creativity and censorship in the industry are acceptable as long as the ones being stifled and censored (not to mention being made to fear for their lives) are feminists.
