Brianna Wu in a terrific piece on xojane:

Today, I’m being targeted by a delusional mob called “Gamergate.”

If you don’t know what Gamergate is, my God do I envy you. Gamergate is basically a group of boys that don’t want girls in their videogame clubhouse. Only, instead of throwing rocks, they threaten to rape you.

This is about video games, by the way. I know it seems incredible but… there it is.
