“So what is Gamergate “really” about? I think this is the sort of question a philosopher of language would tear apart and scatter the remnants of to the wind, because it lacks any real referent. You guys refuse to appoint a leader or write up a platform or really do any of the things real-life, adult “movements” do.”

Querida Jesse,

Have you ever been to a protest or protest organizing meeting before?  In particular left wing or anti-war protests out on the streets and corners?  Very little leadership if any.  Very little message control.

Even the recent climate march in NYC lavished with money and professional organizers you could find a thousand messages and a thousand different groups.  Including a lot of whackos.  Who was the leader of that march?

Outside of ‘climate change bad, do stuff’ what exactly was their message or platform?

On a leaderless road to nowhere apparently...
