Don't know how serious you guys take her though, but she has a new video out

#2 Edited by PannicAtack (21040 posts) -

inb4 people linking to TheUnfunnyFatass, thunderf00l, and various other remarks about kitchens and sandwiches that stopped being funny after age twelve.

Also, Sarkeesian is only successful because beardmads sent her rape threats. Irony.

She needs to unbutton a little more.

I'll wait till the response videos drop. No point in watching the original and giving it views.

Never heard/seen her before.

@PannicAtack: But other channels get death threats and rape threats aswell, she's playing the victim card because she's a women. The damsel in distress as you might say.

I am all for equality, but she's not even a gamer even though she claimed to be. She also lacks a lot of knowledge and fact about the games and subjects she's talking about

@The_Last_Ride: Point still stands that the detractors gave her ammunition and have only themselves to thank for her series getting more publicity. I, for example, would be living a lovely Sarkeesian-free existence had you not posted this thread.

Gee. Someone complains about sexism in the community and the industry. That makes me so mad that I'm going to go and completely validate that position.

They shat the bed and now they're continuing to shit it, having learned nothing.

i like the intro music a lot. That's the only good thing that has come out of this $150k+ project.

Yawn... Can't be bothered watching that misandrist

#12 Posted by Vaasman (11723 posts) -

If you don't click the video she will go away.

#15 Posted by The_Last_Ride (73944 posts) -

@PannicAtack: i'd still like to hear what others think of her though, especially SW

@StormyJoe: modern feminists are whiners. You should work for equal equality for everyone

so so true. Most of her viewers and twitter followers are the haters themselves. This is why she had to disable the comments and ratings.

So much stupidity in a single video. Sooo much straw reaching. I mean holy shit, this video is entirely based on assumptions, nothing else.

See I'm assuming she has nothing against objectification of women in video games. I think she just doesn't like video games.

See I can find something wrong with any topic, and then say the topic sucks.

Sarcasm doesn't really translate well into writting brah. Say what you have to say, it's easier that way.

I wasn't being sarcastic.

@uninspiredcup: hahaha. i don't even need to watch that clip! I know enfield's work very well!

gold standard lols (and i mean that in both senses of the phrase, as in i'm lolling at the joke within the sketch about gold standards, and i'm also describing this as comedy gold! such wow!)

paul whitehouse was great too.

She's just trying to look good for the boys.

she might as well be trolling. i mean, how the hell did she do that to her face, look in the mirror and go

"There. Done."

be weird if a male character was attempting to flash his flat niples... so it must be a female

#48 Posted by DocSanchez (2143 posts) -

As a not entirely irrelevant aside I remember when announcing you were a gamer was poison to people, particularly women. We were geeks, undatable basement dwellers who weren't going anywhere. This was reflected in playgrounds, on television, in any place really. Thus an industry was created which tailored to our needs and no one elses. We were the only ones buying the games. (or taping them from friends in some cases) Any sexuality (which isn't a bad thing) was from a female perspective and the protagonists tended to reflect us, the overwhelmingly male "nerds" who were outcasts for not being into sports or playing in a band instead.

Now gaming is more mainstream and popular all these standards are "proof " we are evil and unwelcoming. It's like the playground bully complaining that he wasn't taught well enough by the kid he used to push around. In the days of the zx spectrum we would have loved for more girls to be involved, we would have had more credibility and less people treating us like weeds.

Anita is just another feminist hypocrite. Gaming will naturally reflect the people who play it. That's why there are more female protagonists than there used to be, and more customisation. And its why, way back when, the hero tended to be blokey.

@outworld222: Oh, okay. Just so we're clear: you're against her arguments?

ya. pretty much I don't agree with what she's saying.
