Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, corrupt journalists and their followers will have collective influence in whatever they choose to push.
The problem being they have no concern for the welfare of games in general allowing groups with illogical or unrealistic ideologies to piggyback and push their own agenda.
Yes, this has spiraled into an enormous farce, but it a farce with real consequences for developers (especially indie devs who are far more susceptible to pressure) which impacts the future of games in general.
Let us not touch on the harassment, this is just something that started as a push for journalistic integrity which should be desirable in any relevant industry.

most actual gamers don't use actual gaming journalists, true, but game devs do. Haven't you noticed a slow/great change to games over the years? Bioware suddenly making shepard who was for the last 2 games suddenly be able to be gay? Gearbox making hundreds of homosexual characters for no reason? Hell, Ubisoft was bullied into putting a female character into assassin's creed because 'there wasn't a female lead in any assassins's creed game' while they ignored the african lady and asian one.

also, comparing the games it to games these devs used to make, they are shoehorning and shoving these types of things into it hardcore.

Game developers, however, also participate in society, where these isolated biased article discussions never reach to any remotely substantial degree, and the devs are smart enough to decipher these biases.
They'll make what they want to make, and a few articles on these kinds of websites, which they could scan and shoot down in the event they do come across it, couldn't possibly have a big enough public effect to sway them. That's not how you make a profit in the free market. Even if they did follow it, they would try and fail, and then there'd be solid empirical evidence, and capitalism continues.
Looking a little jumpy with a "calm down" gif. This is pretty civil, no worries.

and sadly, ubisoft's being bullied into making some female character due to supposed outrage is evidence enough that they can't make what they like.
and the calm is a bit for myself and for anyone else reading along. Not in the mood for some type of bull shitty internet debate at the moment, keeping myself cool rather than be some raving loon, and because I enjoy using reaction pics than not using them. Feels more human for some reason.

Although there are some initially daunting events, followup of a slippery slope effect is really nothing to worry about, because like I say, the free market. These guys want profits, and the public knows what it wants, too.
No matter what point on the timeline of Gamergate you put your finger on, even the very first moments of it will all consistently show a massive outnumbering ratio of sane people to whiny bitch feminazis, and that's all the evidence necessary to know that the free market can be trusted with this one.
