Sign petition here:

Remove Anita Sarkeesian from Mirror's Edge 2 game development.
https://www.change.org/p/ea-games-remove-anita-sarkeesian-from-mirror-s-edge-2-game-development

 

 

We the undersigned are presenting our names in solidarity against the decision of EA Games and DICE to include Anita Sarkeesian in any aspect of the game development of Mirror's Edge 2. Our reasoning follows as thus:

Anita Sarkeesian has no credibility or experience in game development. She is merely a self proclaimed critic and her opinions should offer no sound foundations in the development of this or any game. She has no experience in the industry.

Anita does not speak for gamers, female or otherwise, on the difficulty or appeal of games. She only offers personal insights catering to her own agenda. In fact, she went so far as to say that women needed a whole new "simplified" control set for this game, based on her personal experiences, passing them off as the opinion of the female gaming community.

In the past, Anita has even spoken against her status as a gamer, only to rebut her stance to serve her own purposes.

We are not against strong portrayals of women in video games, but believe that consultations on games should be given by more credible and experienced sources. We agree with Anita's right to voice her opinion on any subject matter she sees fit, however we do not agree with her input on a professional level and do not want to see the game we love influcened by ignorance.

EDIT: OK IGNORE

But at least ME will be good

Jesus Christ, no. Why? Who would say yes to this?

Petition started by a female, for anyone wondering, please sign and save the video games we love from an infection from an agenda



Just ignore her, the petition leads to more media attention and that's what she wants.

The outraged gamers are the reason of her success.

EA, worst company in America and gaming. They want their crown back from Ubisoft =P

Why is she on the development team? I'm honestly curious.



What is she even helping with? This woman barely plays games and now she has the chance to help develop them? That's just great for people who actually give a shit about the medium and who are having a tough time getting a job as a developer.

And the blind followers who think because she says the word 'feminism' her opinions must be right.

She is a poison, and we need to blacklist her from actually infecting the one thing we love, games.

If she poisons Mirrors Edge, it'll be easier for her to poison every other game.
Whats next? Star wars? Assassins creed?



What if she's doing mocap?

You know, to have enemies in the game made after her.

So you can beat 'em up =p

Giving female character smaller boobs and bigger muscles.
AKA pushing her agenda into gaming, and idealistic agenda that ultimately amounts to nothing.

Gamers aren't sexist, gamers are inclusive, as they have been for years now.
Females aren't under represented, they're represented as much or as little as the developer of the story of the game sees fit.

We cant just strap a pair of boobs to characters and make them the main character for the sake of being a female.
