Gamer Girl Bullied off web by Feminist

I guess Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn's cronies can't follow their own rose.

In OT we have:

  • A dude which hates women
  • A dude which hates student debt/loans
  • A dude which claims only stoners want marihuana legalize
  • A dude that seems to make a thread about any Gallup poll
  • And now you, a dude which can't stop talking about Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn.

So you have nothing to say about the video?

Seems legit to me she's not asking for money in fact just the opposite.

If you can't take the heat, don't enter the internet.

Also, enough with the mucous, it is disgusting.

How is it ok to take somebody's phone number and harass them? Would you be ok if somebody did that to you?

Hey, you don't make comedy videos on the internet and live to tell about it.

Conservatives and their Angry White Male syndrome. ;O) But I am thankful that these people have always existed in the gaming community. I may not be as good as I am today if it wasn't for them constantly irritating me.

1) Random audio tape claiming girl was harassed by "feminists" = OH MY GOD, how awful, these fucking people sicken me. This is exactly why they need to be exposed!

2) Death/rape threats, personal information hacked for being outspoken about sexism in game = YEAH! THIS GIRL NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! Plus, like those death threats were probably fake. We want evidence, we don't just believe random screenshots or videos clai...I mean, GAH! BURN THE WITCH!

Except this girl isn't asking for money or attention right afterwords in fact just the opposite she's basically telling everyone to F off and leave her alone. This doesn't sound like someone crying for attention it sounds like she's general pissed which is why I believe her.

Not to mention this harassment isn't just some fake account random on twitter spewing idiotic twilight fantasy that anyone could send, they phoned her house if you honestly cannot see the difference between this and the Anita Sarkeesian twitter scandal that's just sad man.

I enjoyed this girls videos they made me laugh, it's a sad day when you can't even make comical joke in good fun without getting tracked down and personally harassed. This is as much of a defense of comedy as it is gaming and I'll be damned if were going to censor either just to appease Feminist and SJW.

And yet if it was a feminist who made this video and claimed that it was men harassing her, you wouldn't believe it at all.

What I find fascinating is that even when feminists have evidence and statistics to support a claim, people like you don't believe it. But if an anti-feminist just says something without showing any type of evidence at all, you have no problems believing it. LOL Your standard of evidence seems to change depending on who makes the claim.

Called her house? Oh like how people were harassing the families of Zoe and Anita? LMAO, sorry bud but none of the harassment you mentioned that was allegedly directed towards the girl in the video comes close to the level of harassment Zoe and Anita, and those that support them, have received. In both cases the harassment is wrong, NOTHING warrants this shit on either side, but your hypocrisy is laughable and just plain sad.

This anti-SJW bullshit is also pathetic. People are literally declaring themselves against the discussion and progression towards equality in gaming. What is it about certain groups of gamers that makes them completely incapable of listening to these topics without going batshit crazy? Insecurity? Lack of empathy? This topic is discussed damn near daily in regards to TV and film, yet you don't see fans of either threatening to kill bloggers for bringing up how Cersei was treated in the recent season of 'Game of Thrones'.

In the end, all this has done is severely hurt the image of all gamers. If it does get national attention, you better hope some random senator does't hear about these harassment cases and begin to go on some crusade against violence in video games...something that has already happened before.

If anything is to be achieved in regards to the apparent "corruption" in gaming journalism, or sexism in video games, it will be done by level headed, civil individuals - not the people on forums such as this. Which is why everyone should move the hell on. You in particular...starting with not making a new thread every day about this stupid topic.

Both sides are extremely insular. They congregate in echo chamber online communities that allow them to foster an "us versus them" mentality that inevitably leads to deplorable behavior.

I don't have any love for Anita Sarkeesian. The only reason I don't engage in criticizing her is because a number of her critics are kinda just awful people.

That's different! Feminists deserve to have people calling their houses and harassing them. Didn't you know?

I personally don't care much about the whole issue of sexism in gaming. It is clearly an issue that has been brought up by many (not just people like Anita) but not something I have enough knowledge of to openly discuss; but it is hard to stand by and watch people try to justify the sort of harassment that has been the result of all this. Nothing bad can come from civil discussions of equality in any medium. Why some people are so afraid is baffling.

@SaintLeonidas: So if the so called death threats are real, why didn't she go to the police? Instead she went on Polygon, and who here doesn't get shit on the internet? People saying "Go kill yourself" or "I hope you get raped" is common... She uses this to get famous and get money. Hell she got several 100k to make a stupid youtube series that have been picked apart several times with her so called "research" that was needed for the project.

She apparently did go to the police. There is NOTHING to say whether she did or didn't, or that if she did whether the police could or would do anything about it. But the harassment is real. I have seen bloggers simply defend her, and their twitters accounts were instantly swamped with replies riddled with insults, threats, attempts to get their blogs taken down, etc. This isn't some conspiracy she has created, the hate is real and has been there for a long time. It is only now gaining more attention because of the Zoe incident.

Plus, I have NO IDEA how that has anything to do with people supporting her. Guy mentioned in this forum whose parents kicked him out of his house for being gay has received thousands of dollars in funds by people who support him. Anita clearly has followers who agree with the overall message she is trying to get out...if those followers want to watch her videos and donate than SO. FUCKING. WHAT. Some of these "rebel gamers" have raised their own money just to try to create videos to discredit her. Don't hear people complaining that they are using their anti-SJW bullshit to raise money. Again, blatant hypocrisy, that amounts to nothing.

Kind of feel bad, but she went poking a hornets nest involving the worsts kinds of people on both sides of the issue. She seems to have the right idea though, withdraw from attention, get her cool back, and come back when she's feeling better. She doesn't want peoples sympathies, their money, or to be co-opted in this vitriol regarding Sarkeesian and Quinn, she just wants to be left out of it now, doesn't want people subscribing to her Twitter and YouTube now because of this, just wants her old fanbase back and to take things back to how she liked it before.

@SaintLeonidas: People are upset with her and the rest of her movement because they are misrepresenting gaming to further their own poltical view and get money.

The other issue you raised was completely different, the guy was getting disowned. She is doing just fine. If people want to give her money fine, but she talks about having conversations, yet censors or blocks any critical question on twitter and block all comments on her videos... I don't like anyone giving people money for bs and those people are stupid. Wether it's for or against her. But she's playing the damsel in distress and if you are being threatened you shouldn't go out with it in public. Hell thunderf00t was threatened and was told not to say anything by the FBI themselves. So i claim bs on her part

Yeah, I mean that's what I mean she poked a hornet nest, I just think she thought she was so far removed and insignificant that it wouldn't have been of any importance. I but say you don't go inviting the harshest criticisms when you're as emotionally fragile as she was. I'd assume she's nothing to gain from this, she opted out of getting money, told people discovering her now to fuck off and choke on their dicks (which she laid down rather hard)... then again, I'm no stranger to the concept of false modesty.

No, she's claiming that the only reason she's getting these comments is because she's criticizing games when that's not the case. Everyone get's flamed and trolled. She is not special in this case

Wow I must have really pushed some buttons! You're entire rant is completely discredited by the fact Zoe and Anita have made a living on being the professional victim.

Classic sexism and misogyny I've come to expect from this board.

Give this article a read:
http://news.msn.com/pop-culture/for-gamers-combating-online-abuse-not-easy

Weber points to research that shows online taunting, popular in "Call of Duty," ''Halo," and other shoot-'em-up games, may come from bullies who enjoy the online anonymity while seeking to reduce their own anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. She said such abuse is no different whether it occurs on the playground or the virtual battlefield.

She said such abuse is no different whether it occurs on the playground or the virtual battlefield.

LMAO! No, just no. People talk trash online, get over it. If it's just online verbal crap and it usually is then let it go. I have had people threaten to kill me over PSN and Xbox Live, you don't see me crying about it. People taunt online and everybody gets it, get a thicker skin. Verbal shots if just verbal are no big deal.

So has anything actually come of this whole debacle? Like has anyone actually gone through with their actual threats or are we bleeding our hearts to threats made when you say you enjoy pepsi more than coke?

It's online trash talk, take a wild guess.
