i wasn't talking about you lol, i was just reminded of that line cause it's a really good line
In ages past I would have been a stalwart feminist, the ideals they strove for were just and their gender was faced with intolerable prejudice. Current feminists (at least the ones I see commonly represented) are shamefully ignorant of facts, impervious to reason, have a deep-set culture of victim-hood, cherry-pick their 'facts', and refuse to admit their mistakes even in the view of unbiased evidence.
Anita Sarkeesian, Suey Park, Laci Green, Rebecca Watson and others I'm sure I forgot to name have poisoned actual issues and engaged in misandry in situations that have significantly hurt serious issues (Watson and cancer research). While you may discount them as crazies, they have seriously, and negatively, impacted the idea of feminism.
It would be like supporting an animal rights activist that tortured kittens on their downtime.
what's wrong with Anita Sarkeesian. how is she doing anything wrong by making completely valid points about gaming.
her work is actually pretty inoffensive. everything she says is pretty tame and obvious. it's gamers who have made a giant deal out of what would've otherwise been an obscure web series. i mean, look at this shit:
the 1st result is one of her videos, but under that are a lot of frothing at the mouth crazies who are totally enraged by the idea of som woman criticising their beloved vidja games and have way too much fvckin time on their hands
