#GamerGate SPJ Airplay – GamerGate on Ethics

For those who don’t have the time to watch the 7 hour Sargon/Veemonro stream covering the whole thing, LeoPirate (a former supporter of Anita Sarkeesian who has since been crusading for refunds on the undelivered Tropes vs. Women project) put together an excellent 17 minute digest. Additionally, here’s some of the outdoor panel which was not part of the Sargon stream.
I’ll admit, I liked Derek Smart more after the panel than during the panel, so this post also has a link to his footage sans live-stream yaking. Also, Ashe Schow ❤ You justified my reader-crush.
