Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers is a former philosophy professor, writer, and self-described "equity feminist", who is opposed to the misandrist views of contemporary mainstream feminism, herself supporting a pure form of egalitarian feminism. She is a resident scholar at American Enterprise Institute [1]. She found herself a supporter of GamerGate due to the fact that those feminists, who oppose GamerGate, are precisely the type of feminists that are at the center of her critiques.

History of Involvement[[[index.php?title=Christina_Hoff_Sommers&action=edit&section=1|edit]]]

Christina Hoff Sommers released a video titled "Are Video Games Sexist?" on September 16, 2014.[1] This video was criticized by gaming media websites Polygon[2][3] and Kotaku.[4] Sommers responded to Kotaku's article with a tweet calling Stephen Totilo a "blogger" and asking for Kotaku to correctly spell her name in his "attack article".[5] Sommers also released a video titled "What critics of GamerGate get wrong" on October 27, 2014.[6] Sommers appeared on MSNBC's "Ronan Farrow Daily" to discuss GamerGate.[7] On October 31, 2014 Sommers was interviewed live on stream by KingOfPol about GamerGate and her previous MSNBC interview.[8]

Sommers is often referred to as "Based Mom" by her gamer supporters for her views on GamerGate and gaming in general.
