I dont like her either but the Extreme hate She gets is too much, those tweets are probably fale shit just to bait more maibe people into attacking her. If people dont like her dont give her attention like me , internet is free She can say wethever She wants. Funny tweet about anime lol



 

She is quite an extremist and she does not seem to be interested in gaming anyway.

This is one of the most cringy reviews you'll ever lay your eyes upon:

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.

Why bother to make a thread when you haven't seen 1 of her videos, or a video about her.

Imo you seem like a troll

She was amazing on the Colbert Report. When Colbert asked her to name three games that were emblematic of "male power fantasies" , and she seemingly locked up, and tried to shift the conversation in another direction. Was asked a second time, and again tried to deflect the question. Then was asked again, and finally blorted out...."uhhh, Grand Theft Auto."

Out. Standing. Truly an expert in her field. Whatever that is.

I'm paraphrasing. Can't watch the video in Canada for a refresher.

She isn't wrong, is she? If you beat up hookers in GTA, you can get your money back.

And you can beat up men and steal their cash, too. Your point?

Or maybe it actually is Sarkeesian, trying to get people to like her again.

Seriously, when 80%+, which must span the political spectrum, agree that they dislike her, I think the OP is definitely missing something. Or choosing to remain wilfully ignorant to the crap she's pulled.

omg you uncovered my true identity

But seriously, now I understand why people dislike her. I might even dislike her myself (but I don't have a formed opinion on that just yet). Idk why you said I'm "choosing to remain wilfully ignorant to the crap she's pulled" when I just didn't know why people hated her at my first post. My other posts were just me trying to stop fake tweets from being spread as real ones.



G O O D B O I

She is toxic outside her videos, and a lier in them. She was toxic to boogie2988.

 

People need to stop giving her attention. Just let her go out in a silent whimper.

My point was to freak out COKTOE.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

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?

What are you missing? Alot.

 

- She paints a false narrative and uses cherry picked examples of "sexism" and "mysogany" in her YouTube videos.

- She's a close friend and colleague of Zoe Quinn, who despite being a feminist - engaged in sexual favors to get her "game" off the ground and is recently at the center of a fundraiser controversy where she hasn't fulfilled her pledge after more than a year, and now recently stays in Tokyo, Japan - which is ironically one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in.

- Anita tried to get Congress to (yes, this bitch AND Zoe Quinn had a seat) to enforce stricter online bullying by allowing female victims to report and subsequently arrest any male whom they deemed were harassing them - basically enforcing a "guilty until proven innocent" system.

- Anita Sarkeesian, admitted on video that she infact DOES NOT play video games. Which is kinda wierd, considering her crusade and self proclaimed knowledge of them that led her to come to the conclusion that sexism is just RAMPANT in video games.

- Anita Sarkeesian intentionally overlooks video games with strong female leads (Horizon ZD, Tomb Raider, Metroid) and continues to harp on developers despite their actual female representation.

- Anita Sarkeesian, is basically a f***ing liar.

- Zoe Quinn, is basically a f***ing hypocrite.

- Anita verbally abused and attacked "Boogie" (yeah, that fat gamer nerd) backstage when he voiced his opinion against hers at a convention panel.

- And worst of all, the video game industry is absolutely TERRIFIED of this bitch. Neil Druckman (Naughty Dog VP) gave Anita an honorary award, and EA recently wanted her "professional opinion" and invited her to their HQ. Interestingly, that was about a year before BFV was announced. Gee..I wonder if those two things have anything to do with each other....
