Those #gamergate SJW BITCHES PISS ME OFF BRO. But bigger concern is systematic exclusion of women's voices in gamer media. #NOTnotyourshield
Boobs are pretty, and I want to touch them, BRO.
HAVE A FUCKING MURDERBONER about #gamergate. But, FUCK. What if women have perspective on their lives that's impossible for me to grasp?
Operation False Fag II Edit
On October 8, 2014, somebody created an image describing "Operation False Fag II", a campaign to criticize Brianna Wu's game as sexist and demeaning to women. At some point the image was posted to 8chan's /b/ board. Wu brought attention to the image on October 17. Within two minutes of being asked to explain why the image predated Wu being noticed by the Gamergate movement, Wu deleted her tweet about it. 
Oppressed Gamergater meme Edit
On October 9, 2014, Brianna Wu created the "Oppressed Gamergater" meme to mock people opposed to censorship and corruption. After critics used the same meme to mock people who support censorship and corruption, Wu claimed that this was harassment. 
October 10 doxxing and death threats Edit
On October 10, 2014 at 19:52:46, somebody posted Brianna Wu's address, phone number, and e-mail address on 8chan. Wu tweeted about the doxxing within four minutes, saying "8chan/#gamergate just doxxed me, posting all kinds of personal information about me." 8chan users generally condemned the doxxing or accused Wu of doxxing herself. The information published on 8chan was Wu's public contact information from the whois database.
Death threat Edit
On October 10, six minutes after reporting the 8chan doxxing, Brianna Wu began receiving death threats from new Twitter account @chatterwhiteman. Twitter user GGFeminist reported receiving the exact same threat weeks earlier for promoting the #gamergate hashtag.

Fake harassment on 8chan Edit
On October 21 at 9:13, somebody started a thread on 8chan saying:
- "And you people keep trying to tell me that #GamerGate is not a harassment campaign." The same user replied:
- "Fuck you cunt. I bet you're one of those stupid feminists who support women in gaming. I hope you get fucking raped and killed."
On October 21 at 9:40, somebody posted on 8chan:
- "When do we start harassing Brianna Wu?"
The same person replied: "Soon"
- "In 10 minutes"
- "Aight. I'm gonna be sending rape and death threats to her, as a proud supporter of #Gamergate."
This implies that evidence indicating death and rape threats was being faked to implicate 8chan.
Fake Twitter account Edit
A harasser created the fake Twitter account @spacekatgaI to impersonate Wu and say offensive things in her name.

The user icon of @AnonNamaste is also used by Cyberguerrilla's Lorax Live radio show.
Marketing oddities Edit
