Observations[edit]

"Is it just me, or has the site drifted away from the center?" <- I actually do think that you ought to check if it's not just you. There is absolutely no doubt that GG is led by far right nutjobs. Breitbart and Milo are definitely not left wing. And if you see a bunch of gators on various websites claiming to be liberal, it's more likely that they are what we call brogressives. That is they are liberal about issues that affect them, and conservative about issues that affect others. I mean, the fact that you have both the userbox for capitalism and socialism leads me to belive that you, like many other gators, use words without understanding their meaning.

I did not bother to look for any userbox for "supports mixed economies". Explained my full stance on my page. With the people whom I've met, at least, most are liberal about most issues (including ones that don't directly affect them at all). I'm not even going to bother with the difference between being an active participant in something and supporting said something. It'll fall on deaf ears, I'm sure.

"most are liberal about most issues" <- the important thing is if they're liberal about the main issues. Being a fan of MRA's, denying patriarchy, moaning about SJWs or being a part of Gamergate after almost everyone leftwing left it after it got hijacked by Breitbart makes it ridiculous to call yourself a liberal. OR centrist. Typhoon (talk) 19:58, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
I legitimately put my hand to my head. I have not even heard of a "Breitbart" and at most vaguely heard of a "Milo". This... this is just, what? I'm getting that "MRA = conservative, no patriarchy in US = conservative, using 'SJW' ever = conservative, not disliking GG = conservative". I'd actually like you to back those up. Can you? Reliable sources, please and thank you. WittyUsername (talk) 20:06, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
Well, MRAs & anti-patriarchy folks tend to oppose feminism, and feminism is fundamentally a pro-equality position (call it egalitarianism or whatever you want, equality is the goal), and equality is typically a liberal goal. No?
And people who use "SJW" tend to either [a] use the words Cultural Marxism and be a /pol/-style conspiracist about the liberal media or [b] use the words "regressive left" and Political Correctness and complain about feminism or [c] be edgy liberals.
In general, I think the problem with MRA-type movements is that, if they're truly for equality, then they overlap at least 90% with feminism and agree with 90% of feminists; even if you think that some feminists are PC-abusing censorship-slinging dead weight, you should criticize them in the way that TERFs are criticized by mainstream feminism, rather than whining about feminism as a whole.
