I'll admit I just got around watching Tropes vs. Women in Video Games for the first time (yeah, a good 5 years or so late to the party).

From what people told me, I was expecting a crazy extremist host with an extremely biased script, but... Anita Sarkeesian just seems to be politely expressing her opinions, and she even says that these flaws she's exposing shouldn't make us dislike video games, but think a bit more about the clichés they use so often. She doesn't seem dishonest or aggressive either.

Am I not seeing something? What am I missing?

She has an incredibly punchable face.



I just think she needs to go away with her toxicity that she is outputting onto our community. I thought League of Legends was bad until I saw her "Anti-Male Frequency" youtube channel or whatever its name is. She doesn't even play games, just judges them as an outsider.

Yeah, I've heard that a million times. But, when was she toxic? When was she anti-male? What makes you think that she doesn't play games (and why does she need to play a game to talk about a cliché in its story?)? I'm asking for examples, because I can't find them.

Maybe she's super toxic outside of her videos but I've watched a fair bit of tropes vs women and she's fine. Like her videos are oddly mundane considering all of the hate she gets. She's far and I mean very far from the worst thing to come out of modern feminism and when it comes to politics in general on YouTube there are way more obnoxious voices on both the right and left. Like I said maybe she's actually really toxic and annoying outside of YouTube but based on my limited exposure I really don't get the raging hate boner people have for this chick.

Ok that's fair



I don't like her because she is trying to be a leader of feminism by backseat driving when she doesn't even know what she's talking about. She doesn't play these games herself, she doesn't understand gamers at all, she's just looking at it through a glass window and criticizing what she sees. In the end, all she points out are things we all know from the start and she's pulling the microphone away from real feminists while doing it. Then when someone wants to debate her over it, she disables comments so no one can post an alternate viewpoint.

Then the news goes out of it's way to treat her like a sacred "does no wrong" feminist.

If you want an example of something shitty she's done, just look at her controversy with the youtuber, Boogie. The guy is the nicest and most neutral guy on youtube. He doesn't take anyone's side, he words everything he says as nicely as humanly possible. Anita got pissed at him because he said "I as a white male receive hate too". The guy has a serious medical condition that states he needs to avoid conflict, but she goes and blows up at him over that.

I don't like her because I honestly think she does NOTHING for feminism and is actually counter-productive. She does the conservative job for them.
