About

RationalWiki (RW) is a wiki whose stated aims are to critique and challenge pseudoscience and the anti-science movement, explore authoritarianism and fundamentalism and analyze how these subjects are handled in the media. It was created in 2007 to replace Conservapedia after an incident in which contributors attempting to edit Conservapedia were banned.

RationalWiki's stated missions are:

   1. Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement;
   2. Documenting the full range of crank ideas;
   3. Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism;
   4. Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media.

Role in Gamergate

According to Rational Wiki, Gamergate was the worst out of the worst aspects of the internet and is thereby an online hate campaign.[1] Even stating that they claim that "Gamergate lives in an alternate universe with an alternate history, in which Gamergate has doxxed nobody, has significantly increased ethics in video game journalism."[2] It's biased against Gamergate and sometimes uses SJW narratives.

Their rebuttal article heavily sides with Anti-Gamergate, like stating that Gamergate hates women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community (Despite that NotYourShield was created to show that not everyone in Gamergate is a white, straight, or male)
