*cracks neck and fingers* Let’s do this.
Sarkeesian raised $158.922 from 6.968 backers on Kickstarter. Her goal was $6.000. She is still asking for more donations. [image]
The 12 video’s that she was going to produce with the $6.000, that were going to be delivered in December 2012, weren’t delivered. And she has, to this day, October 2014, not even finished half of her promised series.
She not only doesn’t know what she’s talking about, but she desperately tries to slap “misogyny” and “sexism” on anything and everything she can.
And people keep falling for it.
She has been debunked, proven a fraud, a con-artist, over and over and over again.
Deceit & Cencorship - Anita and the White Knights - 'Death threats' and Joss Whedon's 'misogyny' - Twitter: Criticize Anita and you’re gone! - Anita Sarkeesian Doesn’t Understand Words (I can keep going with these)
The double standards are disgusting (she’s a woman, so she gets special treatment, she knows it and play it to her advantage very well), the hypocrisy from the feminists defending her is disgusting (a guy doing the exact same thing, would’ve had his head on a stick by now), and that she can keep doing this is just unbelievable.
The damsel in distress trope is sexist, but professional victim Sarkeesian mastered the part.
AND PEOPLE KEEP BUYING IT.
And whether or not this is true, does it really matter? When people are threatening to kill students at a university because she’s giving a talk there, that’s still wrong.
Are you really saying that it doesn’t matter what she did, what she’s doing, “because she gets threats”?
The death threats are of course horrible, and no one deserves them, but people seem to try and use them to push aside the bullshit Anita is pulling. Hell, a lot of the supposed threats she gets through email are totally forged for the sake of getting more reactions.
So forget the death threats for a fucking second. She’s using a false stance of feminist values and shitting on video games for no other reason than her own financial gain. The charities she claimed to have given to? Every single one reported they had no contact with her name.
Sarkeesian didn’t claim to give money to any charities. You’re thinking of Zoe Quinn.
Sarkeesian hasn’t said anything about what she did/is doing with the money.
Feminists: Feminism is about helping everyone, not just women.
Erin Pizzey: Men can be domestic violence victims.
Feminists: *send Erin Pizzey death threats, kill her dog and force her to elope to America*
—“Feminists” who belittle men who’ve experienced sexual (or any) abuse are not really feminists.
You can’t look at a self-identified “Christian” who is part of the KKK, and say they are an accurate representation of someone who follows Christianity..
You can’t measure any group of people by the weakest, shittiest parts of them. There are shitty, biased, and corrupt people everywhere. No company, campaign, cause, government branch, religious group, political party etc. can be void of those things. Those corrupt things hold back the cause, the goals, and can give a large group a twisted image. But they cannot and do not define the larger group.
The difference between Christianity and Feminism is Christianity has a book called The Bible that you can read and judge people’s actions against the laws written in the book and judge wither or not they’re a “true christian”.
Feminism is a fucking mess and everything is and is not Feminism at the same time. Every single Feminist has a (however slightly or majorly) different interpretation of what Feminism is or should be. So who made you the deciding factor of what is, and is not Feminism?
You don’t get to pick and choose who is a real feminist and who isn’t after the fact based on your individual values. There is a huge swathe of damaging culture within feminism and it goes mostly uncriticized from feminism itself and then hand-waved off when it’s brought up as “oh those are not REAL Feminists!”
Much like I’m sure some of those people don’t consider you, a real Feminist. Do you understand how from the outside looking in this entire movement seems fucking nuts? The crazy fuckers speak the loudest and very little people within the movement question them - and then some of those people go on to become best selling authors or grow a huge audience while spouting awful damaging things.
What, in that case, stops them from representing the larger group? If they’re the loudest and nobody questions them, is that not representation? I am positive there are more rational feminists than there are crazy ones, but I see a fuck of a lot more people talking about mostly irrelevant or made up bullshit than I see anyone talking about real issues, and then the craziest say something fucked up like Gay men are more privileged than straight white women and nobody bats a fuckin eye.
Anti-feminists, stop putting your ignorant bullshit in the “feminism” tag. We don’t really care about your internalized misogyny. Thankss
"Stop proving me wrong or ill say youre a sexist"
nah its more of a “stop being an ignorant fuck because you don’t know what the movement is about”
why is their URL “anti equality, pro equality”
The fact that you think that’s the case is probably why so many people consider modern western feminism as uninformed dipshits.
Feminism in the western world right now has so much anti-equality dogma constantly circulating and receiving zero criticism from the movement itself that it’s a complete farce to paint it as a “pro equality” movement.
It’s a transphobic, man-hating, misogynstic, anti-gay, anti-factual movement full of ignorant dumbasses who refuse to challenge or criticize people within their movement that say things like “Gay men are less oppressed than straight white women” or “[feminist] Men are using equality to become more equal than women”, or this gem “keep your dicks out of feminism no matter what you call yourself”.
When so many feminists disagree on what feminism fundamentally IS you can’t speak for your entire movement and you certainly can’t point to it as being pro equality. Every feminist has a different set of values for what feminism is and is not with their own set boundaries and definitions, and as long as that is the case feminism isn’t for anything.
It accomplishes nothing other than some vague pro-equality statements without really defining what equality is, for who, etc. It propagates frankly bogus myths like the 73%, 77% and 80% wage gap ‘inequality’ and doesn’t really intervene when hugely influential figures within the feminist movement say incredibly damaging things, presumably for fear of presenting infighting, and then wastes vast, vast amount of time on frankly inconsequential things like misinterpreting pop songs, words like “bossy” or white house petitions to remove youtube personalities.
Meanwhile rape is practically legal in Uganda because of their infidelity laws and feminism is arguing over wither or not posting jokes about pumpkin spice is sexist or not.
It’s a fucking joke.
●Because when I tell a feminist that I don’t support feminism I get called an “ignorant bitch.”
●Because I am not oppressed.
●Because I know not all men are rapists and that cat calling is NOT a form of rape.
●Because when men get raped it’s not taken seriously.
●Because a man will get a harsher punishment than a woman for the same crime.
●I don’t need feminism.
