God, there's some kid -- it has to be a kid -- on twitter attacking zoe quinn and it's just ... it's like this is the only life he knows, and he's so lost.

"Why can't we just play video games again without all the drama you caused and we responded with."
"I'm a kid, and we've all heard stories about how the purest mind is that of a child."
"I absolutely hate the journo thing you did. So much that it's affected my life for the past few months. I hate you, with a passion, that might contradict what I said, but for the first time I've hated someone for what they did. You've done horrible actions, but don't admit it I'll admit something, I'm horrible for calling you horrible. Everyone's horrible. Now you have to admit your wrongdoings I don't know many details about what you did, but I do know that there's plenty of proof, and that you did do things along the road that is Gamergate. I don't even understand what I said, but that's what I think about you. All I want you to do is to start admiring when you're wrong, and I want the same thing for everyone else. Pro gg or not.I don't understand you, I don't think I ever will Well, that's the last time I state my opinion on an account opposite of mine"

It's the voice of someone begging to be told what to do. Like the kid just had an empty head and it got filled with nothin but Gamergate. And sometimes he's so lost and unsure of himself without the Reddit lynch mob to back him up. Or he's just full of Gamergate talking points, as if he's gone to school for this his entire life.

[A series of quotes from author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie]

1. Power is the ability not just to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person.

2. Show a people as one thing, only one thing,over and over again, and that is what they become.

3. Our histories cling to us. We are shaped by where we come from.

4. A student told me it was such a shame the Nigerian men were physical abusers like the father character in my novel. I told him that I had recently read a novel called American Psycho and that it was a shame that young americans were serial murderers.

5. I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is obvious to everyone else.

6. His advice to me (and he was shaking his head sadly as he spoke) was that I should never call myself a feminist because feminists are women who are unhappy because they cannot find husbands.

7. At some point I was a Happy African Feminist who does not hate men. And who likes lip gloss and wears high heels for herself and not for men.

8. About 52% of the world’s population are women. But most of the positions of power and prestige are occupied by men. The late Kenyan Nobel Peace Laureate Wangari Maathai put it simply and well when she said, “The higher you go, the fewer women there are.”

9. Because of writers like Chinua Achebe and Camara Laye…I realized that people like me, girls with skin the color of chocolate, who’s kinky hair could not form ponytails, could also exist in literature.

10. My college roommate asked if she could listen to what she called my ‘tribal music,’ and was very disappointed when I produced my tape of Mariah Carey.]
