Meet Graham Linehan, also known by the screen name Glinner, an Irish man that is semi-famous as a successful comedy writer in the United Kingdom. He has worked on critically acclaimed shows such as 'Father Ted' and 'The IT Crowd', among many others.
Recently though his life has taken a downward spiral. It's been a while since he's done anything worth talking about on the tele, so instead he gets his attention online. Glinner is currently most notable for whining about "Gamers", "GamerGate", and ironically enough "Misogynists" on the internet. I say that this is ironic due to the fact that well...
A) He 'face shamed' singer Dolly Parton
B) He uses words considered to be misogynistic slurs (cunt, bitch, slut, etc) about people he hates and/or disagrees with
C) He believes all women who don't think GG is a hate group are too stupid to think for themselves
This guy first came onto my radar more than a month ago while reading twitter, but I've got caught up with other threads (like Luke McKee/@VGB-OPSEC's friends and the Norasphere Rat King), along with school and hobbies (like Just Cause 2 and Fire Emblem, among my current favorites, but that's really off-topic) to bother with this guy, but I recently checked in on him again and he's still up to the usual twitter bitching in between his retweets. Almost all of it related to DANG, DIRTY GAMERS and their #GamerGate, and also Donald Trump. Because, similar to David S. Gallant, Brianna Wu, and Nora Reed, he can't stop thinking about things that he hates.
From what I can tell, this storify deals with one of his (possibly two) scuffles with Shoeonhead, famous youtube GG ranter personality and pretty real life female woman of the human species.
Ralph Retort's @theralph, also covered this incident.
KiA link detailing his double standards on the word "cunt" (is, it's OK when he does it)
Why is it that these people that obsess over GG are either washed-up hacks or indie nobodies that act really whiny, egotistical, and condescending to people that disagree? I thought GamerGate was just funny reddit neckbeards doing internet arguments.
Oh how the mighty have fallen...
This link shows him using follower count as an argument, lol
