DOXA 2015 review: GTFO: Get the F&#% Out

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Thanks to an online hate mob calling itself GamerGate, the topic of sexism in the gaming industry has never been more relevant or visible. However, as filmmaker Shannon Sun-Higginson shows, harassment and sexism is hardly a new development in gaming; in fact, for women it is to be expected.

      Through interviews with gamers, developers, and writers, Sun-Higginson leaves no sexist stone unturned, following the history of the gaming industry to uncover just why women are frequently treated like second-class citizens and what that says about our culture at large.

      Vancity, May 8 (12:30 p.m.); Cinematheque, May 9 (4:30 p.m.). Both screenings will be followed by a talkback session.

      #Gamergate is about ethics and corruption in gaming media, and always has been.

      It's opponents only scream "sexism!" to divert attention from the real issue, and to pump up their patreon donations. Some of the worst anti-#gamergate people are raking in $5000 a MONTH, by playing the victim. Don't be fooled by one sided media reporting, like you see here.
