The author of the New Yorker article that sparked the Gamergate movement was one of the most prominent voices against the GamerGate hashtag.
But the writer, who is known for his anti-establishment views, has now made it clear that he won’t be participating in the anti-harassment movement.
In an interview with the New York Times, John Scaliz said he will not be participating because he believes that “the people who are the most responsible for this are the people who want to see it happen.”
He is no stranger to controversy, as he has been criticized for being critical of Donald Trump’s presidency, his criticism of women and his support of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
He is also a regular target of the Gamergate hashtag, which has been a source of anger for some.
Scalzi’s views on the GamerGate movement have been controversial among some Gamergate supporters, as well.
He has previously made it known that he thinks that women should be able to make up their own minds about what constitutes harassment and how it should be dealt with.
“When you’re doing it in the real world, you know how to deal with it,” he said in a 2017 interview with CNN.
“There’s no way to take this thing and just say, ‘Well, this is harassment.’
You have to have some kind of logic in your head to know what the appropriate response is.”
When I met Scalzi in April 2017, he had a new book coming out, called “I Am Not a Feminist: A Response to Feminism.”
It was a book that would be aimed at younger readers, but also aimed at older ones.
It would address the “dumbing down” of the discourse surrounding issues of feminism.
In the interview, he said that he wanted to make a “real difference” in the world, which is why he wrote a book about the Gamergate controversy.
It is unclear how he plans to respond to the growing anti-Gamergate movement.
The New Yorker interview, however, has given him a platform to discuss his beliefs.
And while he will be participating on the antiharassment side, he is unlikely to take part in the Gamergate side.
That said, he has spoken out against Gamergate’s rhetoric and actions.
Scalz, who has been involved in Gamergate for years, wrote a blog post last year titled “How Gamergate made me a victim of the media.”
He explained that “this was not a hate movement.
This was not an anti-woman movement.
These were not hate groups.
This wasn’t a misogynist group.
These weren’t alt-right groups.
These aren’t white supremacists.
This is not the KKK.
This isn’t the Alt-Right.”
“They were basically people who didn’t have the facts, who didn.
They were basically lying, and I wasn’t able to see them.”
The book, which was published in April 2018, is a collection of essays and short articles that describe how he and his colleagues saw the Gamergate phenomenon.
He described how “the Gamergate movement and its proponents are not really in any way the people they pretend to be, which I think is really a shame.”
In the New Republic article, Scalz described Gamergate as a “bizarrely narrow, self-styled, misogynistic movement” that was not about sexism or misogyny.
He went on to say that the movement was “the best thing that has ever happened to me, and there’s not a thing wrong with that.”
“But the problem is, these are people who don’t understand how the real women’s movement works,” he wrote.
“These are people with a lot of baggage, and it’s not that they’re wrong; it’s that they just aren’t understanding how the movement works.”
He concluded his piece by saying that “they’ve just got to get over it and stop doing this to themselves.”
He went onto say that Gamergate was “more about the same thing I’m doing to myself, the same kind of thing I’ve been doing to my friends and family, my family members, and even people who have criticized me.”
