One of the things that preceded #GamerGate was Zoe Quinn’s invasion of WizardChan where she falsely accused them of attacking her so that she and her personal army could harass and abuse them. As we know, the wizards are suffering from depression, and there’s a suicide hotline on every page at WizardChan for good reason. There are rumors that Zoe Quinn’s invasion was enough to push several wizards over the edge to commit suicide. What Zoe Quinn did was effectively a form of murder. You would think one invasion would be enough for them. It turns out that it isn’t.
First, we have Arthur Chu, the Jeopardy champion who went full mangina at the beginning of #GamerGate, trying to tie Elliot Rodger to WizardChan and encouraging more invasions of WizardChan.
This even got people outside of WizardChan riled up enough to report these tweets to Twitter. That’s how disgusting this is. But, it doesn’t stop there. Gawker has also declared war on WizardChan (link is NSFW) and is leading a campaign against adult male virgins and men with autism.
Reading about these new attacks on WizardChan has made me so fucking angry. It’s made me angrier than anything else has in years. It’s like watching a group of thugs go around and beat up disabled elderly people in wheelchairs. I’m sure more wizards will commit suicide as a result of this. If I was a family member of a wizard that committed suicide after today, I would immediately start a wrongful death lawsuit against Zoe Quinn, Arthur Chu, Gawker Media, and any other publicly known individual or corporation that supports attacks on WizardChan. If any wizard commits suicide after today, they are all responsible and must be held accountable.
Another thing to consider is that these attacks on WizardChan aren’t simply a matter of opportunism. If you look at the collection of people opposed to #GamerGate, it includes (supposedly former) supporters of Nazism. While they may have technically given up the Nazism, it’s likely that they’re still fine with causing the deaths of men they consider inferior like the wizards. Because of this, there is no such thing as being too extreme when it comes to defending WizardChan. The wizards simply want to be left alone. I intend to use everything available at my disposal to help the noble cause of protecting WizardChan. Everyone reading this should do the same.
