Gamergate boils down to two main issues. The general concept that women in gaming get an abnormal amount of harassment because of their gender, the quote unquote “against gamergate” position. And individuals utilizing their connections to people in the video game media to prop up an otherwise untenable position or product, the pro-gamergate position. Gamergaters are for ethics in games media. Anti-gamergaters are fighting harassment against women. You’ll note that when it is boiled down like that, it’s hard to see the overlap. That overlap occurred when a female game developer had a relationship with a games journalist that wasn’t disclosed, and she got harassed for it, if you can call rape and death threats by the innocuous beige word harassment.
