(National Report) - Anita Sarkeesian is a feminist video blogger that provides social commentary on video games for the drama hole called Feminist Frequency. She and her ilk are some of the biggest idiots on the internet. Allow me to explain why.
Sarkeesian made a video where she points out misogyny and the stereotypical portrayal of women as weak or submissive, as well as some shocking gaming violence used to straighten these women out. It is 25 or so minutes of bully pulpit homily of gaming violence and misogyny. Then comments are disabled.
The conversation, like many modern feminists discussions is one sided. “Listen to me!” they mewl.
It is ineffective, self-serving and hyper-hypocritical after smartly pointing out a game story line that features an annoying female trope that must be violently destroyed by the player with no other channel of recourse to continue game play to do the same to viewers of a video.
Only a high-horse-riding idiot would think that this strategy is effective.
That isn’t to say that Sarkeesian doesn’t make some good points. She does, but sticking fingers in one’s ears and ignoring what anyone else has to say about that is just being a peevish, contentious, spoilt little Princess.
Deep in the subconscious humans understand that men can’t have babies. Men are just not as valuable as women from a future-of-the-species perspective. In a dystopian end-of-the-world setting, a few men and a whole bunch of women can continue the gene pool, repopulate in a decade or so. A bunch of men and one woman will end up with stupid babies, probably some red heads for good luck. And it will take a lot longer.
Women need men, so stories usually include that.
Seeing a woman struggle or be a complete fool is difficult to watch. It will prompt a response. Sarkeesian hypocritically uses this fact in her method of non-discourse, knowing that it will evoke an emotive response.
The problem with her inciting a response and not providing a channel is some other woman will endure the brunt of any anger.
How many women will endure a name calling, a smack, whack or worse after her video is shared on some gamer web site? Will the game writers be blamed for a black eye, broken rib? Will it be the fault of a trope when some girl gamer that gets bullied or stalked by a frustrated viewer of Sarkeesian’s little educational vid?
Sarkeesian ends the video with a smug little justification of why the damsel trope in game storylines needs review. Perhaps she should review her own.
