I for one wear the 'Alpha Female' badge with pride! To me, this stands for being highly charged, positive and a people-oriented person. It truly frustrates me that the label often carries a negative connotation - it's equated to being ruthless, nasty or needlessly combative to succeed at all costs. Those who embody the latter approach aren't setting an healthy example for the next wave of young female leaders, don't you think?

GamerGate has become an online movement that has spawned a torrent of despicable behaviour, despite what it first set out to achieve. Equality and freedom are virtues that every human being should have and live for. I fail to understand why anyone would abuse someone for simply believing they should have the same rights as everyone else.
