Because people in opposition to GamerGate were complaining about how the movement was a concerted assault on women.  I didn't think anyone here was going to agree with all of his points, but he does point out that the whole "GamerGate = Concerted Misogyny" is a load of bullshit.  Yes he doesn't align himself with the movement, but I thought it was important someone like him to emphasize that last point.

Okay, yeah, but at the same time he left people who aren't already in the know with no clue about what either side was really up to.

But it was clear to me at the start of the segment that he had qualms with both sides of the issue.

"A man chooses. A slave obeys."--Andrew Ryan, Bioshock.  How Hawkeye missed this great quote I'll never know.
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"

To be fair, Bioshock is not the most libertarian friendly series out there. Bioshock Infinite especially so.

Agreed.  It's based on Objectivism.  Which I find repulsive. >_<

Watching chuggaaconroy's LP of Xenoblade Chronicles, for the sake of those who haven't seen the game or played it, I'll put the rest in spoilers. You've been warned.
