#NotYourShield exists as an extension of #gamergate to point out that you cannot use minorities, women, and others as a defense to deflect criticism of poor ethical practices and standards in game journalism.
When we spoke out against out this behavior we were called sockpuppets, "Uncle Toms", imposters, traitors, anti-woman, trash, garbage, sub-human filth and much more.
The story that you have been told in the media is not the full story, and is not the truth. This video is just a few of the VERY REAL human beings who have been told to sit down and shut up, that they cannot think for themselves, and that they cannot have a voice. We should all be very worried when we exist in a time and a place where dehumanizing someone is considered "okay."
These are the PEOPLE who will tell you what they think with their own words.
You may not agree with #gamergate, but it's important that you take into consideration the possibility that you've been hearing a VERY slanted and one-sided story. Question what you're being told
