If you’ve listened to InternetAristocrat’s videos on gamergate and Zoe Quinn, you probably heard him mention funnyjunk. 4chan and funnyjunk were both sites I went to frequently, at the time, and I generally considered 4chan to be the “better” of the two.
But what with the recent developments, that seems to be changing. The anonymous imageboard that constantly flaunted its love for freedom of speech, is now being outdone by the website whose admin has pretty much always been depicted as a harsh dictator.
If you wanna discuss gamergate and all that shit, don’t go to 4chan. Go to funnyjunk. They have threads. The admin is currently developing his own gaming journalism site as well. They will let you talk about it. 4chan is lost.
Moot, a harsh dictator? You mean the guy we loved to make fun of and draw cutesy art of?
>don’t u see, he’s gone to the dark side, he’s a feminist slave now
Met Moot once. The guy is super fucking smart about internet marketing and shit. Also, he’s kind of cute.
Moot grew up. And, his userbase can’t stand that.
I used to have a HUGE crush on moot no lie. I am jealous you met him lol.
mootykins a dictator i’m laughing so hard
does op even lurk bro?
It’s kind of funny that you all thought I was referring to moot when I talked about one of them being depicted as a dictator.
And not the admin from Funnyjunk who had/has fucking Kim Jong Il as his avatar on the site.
Y’all are more retarded than I thought.
I mean for fuck’s sake, I said:
"The anonymous imageboard that constantly flaunted its love for freedom of speech (this is 4chan) is being outdone by the website whose admin has pretty much always been depicted as a harsh dictator.”
You people need to get some fucking reading comprehension.
And moot didn’t “grow up”, he sold out.
Admittedly, it can be difficult. This kind of stuff is not for everybody, and I advise anyone who is feeling worn out or sad because of this stuff, to simply distance themselves from it. Not everyone is meant to do this kind of thing.
But if you are invested in continuing to do this, then just make sure you’ve got other things to do as well. Gaming, reading, hell even a job, are all good distractions. I also recommend following some blogs devoted to other things you love.
For example, I follow several blogs that post pictures and gifs of cute animals. A couple gaming blogs too.
Basically, just give yourself distractions. Focusing too much on this social justice stuff just makes you bitter and unhappy.
