I seriously have never encountered a single anti-Anita Sarkeesian person who I would describe as an intelligent or thoughtful person. The vast majority of these people decided that they hated her long before she actually released any of her videos. Don’t forget how many of these bros accused her of being a “scammer” just because she didn’t release her first video immediately after her Kickstarter ended, as if one of her videos could feasibly be made in a couple of days with no preparation time whatsoever. These people will jump at literally any opportunity to publicly hate on her, even if the reason only exists in their own heads. They don’t even know what she has to say because they don’t watch her videos. They fear what she represents and they will stoop to whatever to shut her up, including intimidation and threats of violence. It is honestly the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen. I always knew gamer culture was pretty insular and misogynistic, but Anita Sarkeesian is proving that more and more every day just by existing.
She’s not a gamer, steals other people’s images and videos to use in her low quality videos, and has an agenda to change all games to suit her preference. Yah, people have plenty of reason not to like her.
Hate and threats are something every person who puts themselves in the spotlight deals with, especially if they stir controversy. You don’t see rock stars, movie stars, and journalists crying over it often. They don’t damsel themselves in order to drum up support because that’s just pathetic behavior, unprofessional, and only adds to the controversy and stirs up more hate. Any reasonable person knows to ignore haters in order to marginalize them. Stop pretending this is some new and unique thing that only happens amongst gamers, or that it only happens to Anita.
As to her not being a con artist, how much money do you need to run a crappy video blog?! LMAO But by god, she simply MUST have that $1,000 pair of ugly Gucci shoes! XD
This is really, really embarrassing.
