I'm willing to bet that most people don't know why "-gate" is even used anymore.-gate. Anytime something happens it's something-gate. A games journalist gets a blow job? Gamer-gate. Trump gives some ladies an alternative handshake? Pussy-gate. Comic book faggotry? Comics-gate. I drop my beer? Spill-gate. Someone rear ends me in traffic? Whiplash-gate. We just need someone to get stuck in a gate or something and we'll have Gate-gate.
