Because people just can't let go of the PR shit. GG could save a bunch of third world orphans from a burning building and the media would still find a reason to shit on us. The narrative is set. The truth doesn't matter. But some people can't accept that and keep unnecessarily going out of their way to prove they're "good".

Which is also why some people seem to think now that they don't "need that kind of support". PUAs are "icky" so they don't want to be associated with someone like Roosh V, no matter how supportive of GG he's been. Milo writes for Breitbart and conservatives are "icky", so they don't want to be associated with him even though he was the only journalist to give us the time of day at first AND broke the GJP story.

And so forth and so on.

Muh PR!

Day is a feminist so it makes them look good, Roosh is a PUA so it makes them look bad.

Except only 18% of Americans are pro-feminism, so even if the media didn't lie about GG, supporting a feminist DOESN'T actually make them look good to the general public. That's the thing about KiA, they seem to think SJW views are mainstream and that they need to pander to them.

Actually, that's not it. They aren't pandering to a political group, they're pandering to human nature. "Woman in Peril!" stories sell gangbusters. Always have, always will.

First off, fuck the both of them. I don't like either of them and I think this is just personal army bullshit. Her book is full of lies about GamerGate and Roosh V is a fucking idiot who I wouldn't shed a tear for. I doubt he gives half of a fuck about game journalism and is only on GG's side because it largely opposes SJW bullshit. The last thing we need is people dragging more politics into this revolt and that's all I see him offering. His motivations are largely opportunistic because few people will side with him, just as Day's are for anti-GG.

Secondly, I can understand the angle for Felicia Day (idiotically trying to avoid bad PR) but I don't understand the angle for Roosh V. Very few people will defend him because of the reasons stated above. Both seek to personally benefit from this but only one makes stupid people think it gives GG an advantage.

You're wrong. Neither is an advantage or disadvantage. And it's hypocritical of people to defend one of them and not the other if we give a damn about the truth and free speech. Which we are supposed to be defending. You personally don't have to like it. I don't care. I've had to defend things I despise because I love free speech more than I hate.
