There’s a long and informative Storify by A Man In Black on YouTube, Patreon, and the Rise of the Professional Victimizer. There are people who make a very nice living out of cranking out videos that harass particular women – Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian to name two.
AMIB says thunderf00t is the top worst at this.
A Man In Black @a_man_in_black
Phil “thunderf00t” Mason is a scientist and somewhat (in)famous blogger/vlogger from the freethought/atheist community.
thunderf00t makes videos about science and anti-feminism, and has long attacked Anita Sarkeesian.
His videos usually range in the low six digits for views.
He’s cashed in on attacking Anita Sarkeesian, however. He has two videos from last July attacking her, at 500K and 300K views.
As of July, he was also making more than $2000 per Patreon video, which he releases about twice a month. http://web.archive.org/web/20140724073308/http://www.patreon.com/Thunderf00t …
A nice little earner. Four grand a month for trying hard to ruin a woman’s life.
Thunderf00t released a #thequinnspiracy video titled “Quinnspiracy and does ‘maybe’ mean no?” on Aug 23, bringing his audience with him.
People like thunderf00t’s audience are a large part of why #gamergate is about harassment.
A guy’s gotta eat.
This is just a tiny slice; I recommend the whole thing.
