The #gamergate scandal has been going on for the past month. It was sparked when a feminist named Zoe Quinn (real name is Chelsea Van Valkenburg) was accused by her ex-boyfriend of cheating with five different guys. What was interesting is that many of her alleged sex partners were "journalists" who gave favorable reviews of an abortion of a "game" that she created called "Depression Quest". "Depression Quest" is not a game in the traditional sense. It is more an interactive text based story. Zoe used a tool called Twine to create this "game".
Many gamers saw this sex scandal as proof as to the corruption of the gaming industry. Feminists in return accused the gamers of being sexist, bullies, etc.
But this incident was just the cover of a deeper issue. In the past few years Social Justice Warriors (i.e., Cultural Marxists) have been attacking the traditionally male dominated video games. Zoe Quinn was part of this attack. These feminists want games to be less violent and focus more on transgender and sexually equality issues. Instead of boys playing Call of Duty, they want boys to play games that lecture them on the evils of White Privilege and the Patriarchy. Yeah, sounds fun.
Of course, women leading moral crusades is nothing new. Back in the day, the fight was not against video games but whiskey. And the leaders of this attack were spinsters - childless women who were angry that men were doing something that they deemed socially unacceptable.

Is there a link between childless women and the desire to meddle into the hobbies and vices of men? In most cases I am sure being childless is not an issue. But science has indicated that infertility in women can lead to psychiatric disorders.
