#Gate – Another Annoying Online Trend

Ah, annoying online trends . . . There is never a lack of those at any one time, is there?

A new one that seems to be surfacing lately, is the trend of adding #gate to anything that is considered in anyway scandalous. A throwback to the Watergate scandal of years past, its most recently reemerged as #gammergate (formerly known as the #Quinspiracy, it involves Gamer/game creator Zoey Quin gaining favours and good ratings by basically fucking 3 of those tasked with evaluating her game) and #pluggate (an american artist with a sense of humor put a giant “Abstract” piece of artwork in the middle of a Paris public square that mysteriously resembled a giant green butt plug).

I understand the connection, but these utterly first world problems are NOT Watergate.
Maybe im annoyed at something that, I shouldn’t be 🙂 . Who knows.

Speaking of who knows, I wonder how long until were hearing #penisgate or (in the case of TJ Kirk, The Amazing Atheist) #banannagate .
