#GamerGate: The Anita Sarkeesian Hater That Everyone Hates

The Anita Sarkeesian Hater That Everyone Hates – [Jason Schreier: kotaku longreads] In September of 2013, someone named Celebrinando_Mateus wrote a comment on gaming site IGN. “About GTA V GameSpot review,” that commenter wrote, “The reviewer is a transex. He/She call the game Misogynistic… GTA is a satire. Dark humor! It is sarcastic… I will never read GameSpot again.” Linked on the bottom of the comment was a Twitter handle, @gamesreflexoes. Don’t bother trying to look it up—it’s suspended, just like dozens if not hundreds of other Twitter accounts that have been linked to Mateus Prado Sousa, who apparently lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and writes for a website called Celebrinando. Sousa first came to the attention of several writers in gaming when websites published their reviews of Grand Theft Auto V late last year. During that week, Sousa took to Twitter and e-mail to voice passionate opinions about the reviews he didn’t like, specifically targeting those who criticized GTA’s depiction of women, like GameSpot reviewer Carolyn Petit and game critic Leigh Alexander (a friend of Kotaku who occasionally writes columns for us). When I asked Alexander if she was familiar with Sousa, she said he had been spamming comments on her public Facebook account for ages.
