I weirdly missed it. I was mostly sequestered in my own little internet corner, and emerged blinking at the sun in a new, post Gamer Gate world.Yeah, that was when the SJW movement made its jump from Tumblr safe spaces into mainstream politics. But only in 2015 did it gain near-total cultural dominance.
From what I knew, it was basically a thing about integrity in journalism, then one side cried sexist, and then 4chan went, “We’ll show you sexist.” And then GG talk was banned from 4chan, and then 8chan got involved. It’s a massive saga that shaped today’s internet.
