gamergate is the consumer revolt surrounding corruption in gaming journalism, this group of people have been demonized as misogynists by the journalists in question as an attempt to silence and discredit the people trying to expose their corruption.

gamergate is much like anonymous in that their is no organization, if you say you are part of gamergate, then you are part of gamergate. there are no leaders or controlling party's
person 1 "hey I heard you were part of gamergate, what the fuck is wrong with you, you misogynist bastard?

gamergater " I don't hate women! I just want ethical gaming journalism !"

A person(s) who hate vaginas and are afraid of having sex. They believe that anything with a vagina is unable to internet or play vidjagayms. They never have to worry about encountering one of these beasts in real life, as they sustain on dorritos and mountain dew in their parents basement.
Crikey! While trying to catch a bat, we encountered a wild gamergate in the basement, the stench was legendary. It hissed something foul when we turned the light on.
