These are mostly just uninformed teenagers that haven't fully developed empathy yet. I don't think we need to murder them yet.

disappointed in the dearth of actual females lending legitimacy to their cause, Gamers have created a keutie pie anime girl character with which to call feminists bitches
https://www.tumblr.com/search/vivian+james
http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/vivian-james
Some aspects present in Vivian James’ visual design represent 4chan’s /v/ board, such as her striped sweater being green and purple, a reference to the infamous daily dose images,

Daily Dose / Piccolo Dick refers to an animated GIF of the Dragon Ball character Piccolo anally raping Vegeta.

This seems about right although I think it is not just ignorance and alienation but also the general mental instability of adolescent boys.

cp from an article that summarizes it

the mess started when an angry ex-boyfriend of [Game designer] Zoe Quinn’s posted a dirty-laundry double load of drama-laden chats with her that, he claimed, made her out to be a manipulative liar and a shameless self-promoter. One of his most contentious (and unproven) accusations: that she slept with a gaming journalist at Kotaku who helped secure favorable coverage and publicity for her game Depression Quest. The allegation roiled a youthful (I won’t say immature, but many of your brethren are in their teens) gaming community that already had a volatile relationship with an increasingly commercialized and clickbait-driven gaming press.

oh and he posted nudes of her too i believe

then basically rather than condemning the character assassination she was subjected to, a lot of gamer shitbags went after her for breaches of "journalistic integrity"

There's no doubt I posted some shameful shit when I was like 12 posting on gaming boards. I haven't been following this at all, so I'm sure there's more to it, but by and large the people I knew from those circles grew up to be reasonably well-adjusted, decent human beings. I think the internet, especially with the instant worldwide megaphone amplification of social media, has a way of exaggerating and perhaps worsening things, because people get backed into a corner and become defensive. If the jocks were boarding somewhere you can rest assured it would be even worse. These kids are harmless, or at least they were in my time.

Then again I stopped playing/caring about games around age 16 and had an awkward couple of years on my gaming board where myself and a few other people tried to talk movies and music, and I eventually found this place instead. So maybe the dudes that still care are on some other shit.

and basically the fact that now a lynchmob of angry "anti-SJW" nerds were now demanding accountability about the details of a woman's sex life (which she flatly refused to discuss) made many sites and gaming forums refuse to acknowledge the controversy at all and deleted lots of threads and comments related to it, as the developer of a little known indie game seemed not to qualify as a person noteworthy enough to drag their sex life to light, and it all kind of stank of "doxxing" someone that was already hated.
so now the angry nerds, crying censorship, are calling it #gamergate and trying to foment some kind of ill-defined revolution against the gaming press which is being controlled by social justice feminazis

i mean i think saying its harmless underesimates the larger problem of misogyny in social media and how vocal feminists are pretty routinely subjected to rape and death threats and police and fbi response is to shrug and tell them to stay off twitter then
