God dammit Bob! We just finished putting the lid back on that cam of worms and here you go and open it up, yet again.
Youtube is full of people that have paid attention to what she's said and have proven her assertions are crappola. Then there's the MRM crowd, the radically pro-male flip side to her feminist pandering, and even they've made some fair arguments, most recent one being that it's unfair to women that actually play video games to come in from nowhere and demand things change for the sake of someone that doesn't even like video games. There were women that liked things as they were, that were already gamers, not really against any of it. Then along she comes telling everyone things need to change because she is a damsel and it distresses her, ironically again because she doesn't even really play video games anyway. She earned her money by being a damsel in distress by the "big scary patriarchy" that chose to abuse her for having a voice, then rode that theme to conventions and public speaking engagements, all the while pandering to a fear-based group of supporters that feel bad for her being abused by these awful churlish male misogynists.Worgen said:What is it about Anita Sarkeesian that makes people really really stupid? I mean seriously, it seems like people are just bitching about her to ***** and have paid no attention to anything shes said. "Oh a woman is talking about vida james, RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE BURN STAKE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!"
More then 0% would be a good start.Goliath100 said:Well, if she is holding lectures on colleges all over the states, I'll bet on travelling. She spend time on the road, I think. (Sarkeesian should really have said something definitiv about her day job)Karadalis said:WHAT DID SHE SPEND ALL THIS TIME ON?
Did you really just say that a person does not need to actually research a topic to judge it..
No, I asked how much. Because you don't need to 100% a game to know if it's good (or ok). Than why do Sarkeesian need to play all of NSMB Wii when Peach is in only the begin or end? Don't answer that, just answer how much do a person need to experience before judging?
I would actually argue that her videos make such simple points that they are best suited to educate people who didn't take feminist classes or know very little about feminism in general. But of course, you have to have interest in the material in the first place, which usually happen to be people who are already interested in Feminism and are already partly knowledgeable about it.Goliath100 said:That maybe the main problem with Sarkeesian's videos: They only make sense if you have taken (or is familiar with the material) a feminism 101 class. That pretty much guarantee to split the audience in to 2 main factions that can't understand what the other don't get.Story said:...I think are actually rather good for a Feminist 101 type of thing. I mean pretty all of the things she mentioned were literally discussed in my Feminist 101 class...
It was something i thought might have needed more qualities other than brandishing a saucepan, to be motherly. Ive brandished many a saucepan...then again, i'm not the most masculine guy ever...so you could be onto something there. OH and i like kittensCaptain Pooptits said:How d'ya mean hilarious?
Maybe, but I'll argue that her language is only suitable for they who already knows feminism lingo and ideas.Story said:...her videos make such simple points that they are best suited to educate people who didn't take feminist classes or know very little about feminism in general. ...
