Angry basement dwelling nerds shouldn’t be allowed to shut anybody up. Cancelling the panel was pure cowardice. Please don’t let these jackasses win this fight.

I’m not deeply familiar with all this, but offset +1 for a fair point. Let people meet and thrash it out. A far more mature approach than certain gamers realize.

I would recommend you research these “gamergate” misogynists who like to threaten any female voice with threats of death and rape. Some female game designers have had to move due to the unbelievable amount of death and rape threats they receive. The rational wiki link I posted has a lot of good background information. There is no grey area in this issue. Women deserve to have their voices heard on any issue (even video games! gasp) without their lives being ruined. I’m not sure who down voted me but I refuse to believe they support terrorizing women just because they have an opinion on video games.

UPDATE: Turns out Buzzfeed and Vox media agree.
