Didn't she say something about the controls being too complicated for women?

No, she never actually said that. People who don't like her made it up.

She isn't though. It was fake.

Women should be able to wear whatever they want, dress how they please, and flaunt what they got.

The same goes for women on art, if those fictional characters rock a tight latex suit and 6 inch heels, power to them. Same goes for real women.

Her blathering just reminds me of putin and his desire to ban every single expression his warped mind doesnt agree with.

Mind you, there is no flowers saying this is right and that is wrong, no vibrations from the earth preaching doctrines, no announcements from the skies about this is the right way to act and that is wrong.
All just social constructions.

As a guy who would like to wear heels when going out to party, along with my black attite, i am not alloved to do so because of the social constructions around me.
Ad as i said, no flowers shouting dont wear heels ;--p all just a construction.

she isnt helping with mirrors edge. EA confirmed it.


Thats fine. If shes out of it I am cool with that as well. I am just stating that Neil Druckman gave the seal of approval to Sarkeesian as  to why Ellie turned out as badass as she did.


She's not "out" of it. She was never ever helping with it.

Shes not liberal, open-minded nor a proponent for change... Shes close minded, arrogant and has desires to ban certain expressions from the industry.

Art is art, and when a person steps into the picture and tries to put a lid on creative expression and the work those in the industry deliver, Shes bound to set herself up for scrutiny.

She is anti-liberal and anti-freedom, but its easy to get those things mixed up in the mindgames many play.


 Shes definitely critical of the male approach, but i've seen her critique of even female writers. She seems to have an ego, but most people who speak out tend to anyway. She isn't going to affect the development of every game. Shes not a major threat and people should stop feeding her negatively if they dont want her to get more major media attention. The hatred is what is fueling her fame, and most people don't even understand that. 

Most people don't understand that attacking her is only backfiring by the media at large who know nothing about games and don't particularly understand the gravity of the Gamergate issue from an actual gamers perspective.

Yes, I understand gender constraints...but then again....most cross-dressers are straight. Most people just don't know that.

I believe it to be a dangerous thing when certain individuals go out of their way to ban freedom of expression and individuality. If she wants to put a ban on women in gaming wearing petite outfits, experimenting with fashion and style.

she would probably want the same in real life. Women should be able to dress how they like, without others banning their expression and individuali.

Disingenuous and pedantic, that's Sarkesian in a nutshell. Another feminazi liberal. Nothing to see here. Move on.


She can seem a little forceful at times, but how would you rather she came at us with her statements ? I mean without her we wouldn't as males be forced to think about the issues. I'm a fan of anyone who forces me to think outside of my comfort zone. Even though I am egilitarian, I am also a male so I like when my biases as a male are put in check. It teaches us to come down from the cloud we're living in at times.



Anita is a con-artist, making big bucks and gaining huge influence through lies and deceits. That is all there is to it.

We try so hard to ignore her, but it is difficult when the media constantly brings her up. If media actually would stop, then she'll go to twitter and tell the world how horrible her life is, so she can earn some more sympathy-cash.

She has done NOTHING for the industry. In fact, she's trying her best to censor and ban things that appear "problematic" IN HER OWN EYES. Not the people affected, not the creaters, not the customers. Its all about HER feelings. She can take her money and go to Iran, and try to do some real work, and actually help real people.
