Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Pro Gamergate people were NOT "hateful", tell your guest to shut the hell up with her lies. They were calling out blatant lies of reviewers sleeping with people and cheating on their SO to bribe reviewers for good reviews, and flat out lying and then trying to play the victim. Pro Gamer-gate people are against PC fucking nonsense. People are sick of being called racist sexist homophonic Nazis just for having a different opinion.
