PSA: When is Enough, Enough Anita Sarkeesian – Vidcon 2017

This is an editorial piece. The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of, and should not be attributed to, Niche Gamer as an organization.

As time goes on, we tend to still deal with people “in the industry” who have said they have left the biz, and who have admitted to not really caring about the industry they injected themselves into.

You might think that this is only about Anita Sarkeesian, but when it comes to art, movies, literature, and gaming –  Anita is just one of many people who inject themselves into these industries as a way to achieve “loftier” goals.

Gamers learned the hard way when it came to Anita. But before she starts injecting self into another art form, we should talk about how you should interact with her. That is the aim of this weeks PSA.

    “don’t message Anita”

    I bet she blocked half the planet by now.

    Anyway, this is standard Anita, not even mad or surprised. What I’m really surprised, though, is by Vidcon’s response. Also Boogie’s response was… I understand he is very non-confrontational, has anxiety issues and all, but damn… I wish he had at least walked away without ever expecting to engage with her ever again instead of explaining himself for the crimes of explaining how he was bullied and saying, non ironically, that he has white privilege like her feminist guidebook says all white males should behave (but I guess this was bad since, this time, it was pretty obvious who had way, way more privilege in that situation).

  • Riosine

    Eh? I Just don’t Interact with Crazy people like Anita. Better to observe them from afar and laugh at them and learn from their errors

    Now everyone should know by now she is just trying to tap into Sargon Fame by fabricating youtube Drama to inflate her obscure channel

    There is also this skeptic community of youtube channels dedicated to calling out weird people for their bullshit like her

  • CatCouch

    I agree. Do not try to debate her, she clearly takes any criticism as “gamergate harassment”, no matter what it is. It’s been more than 5 years and she’s never, to my knowledge, debated any of her critics or even tried to address issues in her videos.

    Her reaction to Boogie shows there is no one she won’t step on. There is no one in this industry she won’t go after.

    Just leave her to wither away in obscurity like Jonathan Mcintosh. He, unfortunately for him, is male and doesn’t get the victim coverage Anita does and we see how little influence he has.

    I’m honestly sick of Anita more than I ever was before the Vidcon incident. Since she’s willing to harass those she perceives as harassers, she has no legs to stand on. That’s self-destructive behavior of someone doing anything to keep eyes on her. Just look away and move on so she can tear herself down and wither away.

  • Guest

    Vidcon’s response is only surprising until you see the picture of the guy hugging Anita. It’s the exact same situation as gamergate. They’re friends and they drink the same kool-aid so she gets to play by a different set of rules and history gets rewritten.

  • Jettythesunfish

    I only find myself wondering how Anita would’ve reacted if she was the one being called out and referred to as a “shithead” and a “garbage human”. But I’m sure we can all fathom a guess.

  • Alfonso Lopez

    I just feel bad for Boogie. Boogie is like the anthropomorphism of all the kids who went to gaming because they had issues… and then Anita comes in and dumps shit on him.

    And she really should have known better. I don’t care what her agenda is, but there are targets you don’t fire at.

    I think it’s been long enough to hope that she loses relevance and disappears. Maybe we should start being more proactive about this again. I mean, you’ve got a GG profile pic, you know what it takes to make real change in this industry.

  • I agree that you shouldn’t engage with her directly, but I would like to add my own advice: don’t ignore her. We ignored her for at least a year, but by doing so, we ended up missing a video where Anita directly confessed that her critics weren’t actually harassing her. So whatever Anita is doing, be sure to let everyone know, because ignoring her allows her to go around doing whatever she wants without resistance, which is how we got here in the first place.

  • Alfonso Lopez

    1) You don’t talk to her.
    2) Make sure no one else talks to her.
    3) ???

    I’m still wondering about this, thinking about Gamergate and the like.

    How do we actually attack (and I don’t mean this in any physical or emotional way) Anita? Can we message any sponsors she has? Can we boycott or pressure anything that contributes to her? Can we petition her off anything where the petition actually has a chance of working? Or is she only in bed with people who have similar ideological interests that will never let her go?

    I think it’s high time we did this. Ignoring Anita hasn’t made her fade away, and it’s been years. I don’t know if it’s possible, though.

  • Fenrir007

    I’m mostly surprised because all the big youtubers side with Sargon on this, and I sort of expected the business vision to take over from the narrative vision. If anything, I expected a more neutral response, not taking any sides with a generic vow to do better next year by revising rules.

  • Jettythesunfish

    “…we ended up missing a video where Anita directly confessed that her critics weren’t actually harassing her.”

    Woah, wait, WHAT?!

  • Fenrir007

    Ah, my GG pic is a relic of the past that is only there because I’m too lazy to upload a new one without it. As for Anita, she is pretty irrelevant as it is, her power has been greatly diminished. You hardly hear about Feminazi Frequency anymore. I say just forget her completely. Making it so people have more shit to talk about her only puts her in the spotlight once again. In fact, this whole debacle, while outing her as a harasser, likely only helped her by catapulting her to the front pages once again, while certainly inflating her patreon some more.

    Regarding her, the only winning move is not to play.

  • CatCouch

    What video was that? I’d really like to see.

    Perhaps we should keep informed. Watch her videos, listen to what she says but don’t really respond. If we respond, she fires back and gets a few media outlets to call it Gamergate armageddon or something. All her side has to do is mention Gamergate and it’s a feeding frenzy. There is no answer to that.

    The irony is she has a much more powerful base to harass her critics. I think she’s starting down a self-destructive path.

    Just post some level-headed analysis rebuttal videos on her videos and let her fade off. There’s a limit to how much attention the public has for these things. No one should feed her by insulting her on twitter or anything. If you see it, respond with a kind message asking them to cut out the personal attacks. It will be much harder for her to cherry pick .

  • Rough
  • LinKurosawa

    That strategy does not work and has never worked.

  • Rough

    God bless Sargoy

  • CatCouch

    This is a good video. Just let her own words do the damage. The evidence can speak for itself.

  • Madbrainbox

    She’s human garbage.Pretending she’s anti harassment then using her platform to harass a member of the audience.
    Also,this is still relevant:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIpw3wHn9Sk

  • CRES

    The strategy has always been a two-pronged attack.

    1) Don’t message her in any way that she can use as “harassment”

    This is what most people mean by “don’t contact her.” Her entire strategy is to play the victim and paint all of her opposition as so horrible that they aren’t worth considering their opinion. By starving her of her “harassment” she would have no ammunition to fire back other than to call even basic criticism “harassment.”

    2) Defeat her Arguments

    This is probably the easier part of the strategy since Anita’s arguments are so laughably poor, that half of your work is already done. Whenever she says something wrong call it out as wrong, and never EVER give her an inch. I think we lost a lot of ground early on just by saying “Video games can be sexist.” A statement that I think is completely untrue.

    By doing these two things the only recourse Anita has is to do the sort of thing she did at Vidcon which is to attack one of her critics despite him NEVER HAVING HARASSED HER. This will slowly but surely destroy her credibility, the only problem that remains is the die hard followers of Anita who will side with her no matter what, even if she claims that rain is a part of toxic masculinity.

    Honestly, I think the real change would have to be that more developers need to stand up and say “I don’t agree with Anita, and I will make games the way I like to make games.”

  • Arenegeth

    Anita herself was never the problem. She, like everyone else can say whatever the hell she wants.

    It takes but a few seconds listening to her talking about video games to realize that she knows little to nothing about them, and that she is obviously pushing a very specific ideological agenda that has nothing to do with video games besides using them as yet another vehicle to perpetuate said agenda.

    The problem always was, the gaming media putting her on a pedestal, and acting as if her word was gospel, the problem was when the mainstream media started parroting her nonsense, and the problem was when she was invited to the UN to speak, as if she knew anything about anything.

    She was always a symbol for the cause, from an encroaching ideological scourge that is slowly but surely trying to take our freedoms away in the name of an authoritarian malevolence, masquerading as benevolence.

    The attack ladies and gentlemen, is coming from all fronts, and if she wasn’t around, the indoctrinated media propagandists, drunk in their own self righteousness would have found another person for the cause, another ideologue-nobody to legitimize.

    So you can ignore her completely, and if you’ve honestly accosted her or ‘harassed’ in the past you’re frankly an idiot, since you gave her and the ravenous ideologues that support her exactly what they wanted.

    What you absolutely can’t ignore, if you’re not willing to have your rights and freedoms slowly stripped away from you, and if you are not willing to completely and utterly submit to the cult of social justice, body and soul. Is the entire system that supports her and people like her, the entire system that is coming for you and it will not stop, it simply cannot stop, because if it does, it will finally realize that it has become worse that the grotesque monster it imagined it was fighting.

    You have to be ready to fight it, in halls of their indoctrination chambers deep in academia, in the seats of governments, in the streets, and even in video games, but do not fool yourself, if things have gotten this bad and the majority of them haven’t woken up yet to the reality of their actions, it may come a day when you will have to make a choice, be a slave or fight. And the fight, the fighting at that point won’t be metaphorical anymore.

  • DJ Rev

    Simple……..If I ever see her on the street I punch her in the face so hard I break something then run like hell.

  • CatCouch

    Don’t do that. That’s pretty terrible. How about we don’t punch people on the street, whether they’re nazi’s or feminists.

  • OldPalpy

    I’ve always wondered why variants of trash and piss/shit are considered their only kosher insults. They aren’t fooling anyone if they think people don’t realize they really want to call them “degenerates” when they use stuff like “garbage human”.

  • Kiryu

    Worse then that.She went after Sargon’s patreon by claiming he makes money by harassing women but after investigation patreon cleared Sargon,she’s pure evil.

  • Demias

    …Just stop giving her attention. I seriously don’t know what’s so hard about this. She is completely, utterly irrelevant at this point. Let her go the way of Jack Thompson. Let her GO. Who cares what she says or does. Christ.

  • Jettythesunfish

    Well, the problem is that there are people who are quick to follow her side the next time she does something to garner more attention to herself.

  • Jettythesunfish

    Not to mention bullying Boogie after he told his story of dealing with actual threats and harassment.

  • Kiryu

    She’s the kind of person to kick someone when he’s on the ground.

  • Jettythesunfish

    i moreso think she herself felt threatened by the mere fact that a man has actually experienced this. To Anita, she’s the only victim anyone should feel sorry for.

  • Kiryu

    I watched the moment Boogie said that and her face,she didn’t look pleased at all.She’s a narcissist who can’t stand someone taking the attention away from her.

  • buddyluv324

    It’s one thing for any news on Anita to show up, but its another for those like Vidcon and Boggie to keep having to build her up and walk egg shells around her. Has no one learned anything from this famous phrase from The 40 Year Old Virgin?!:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsnXQdkqChg

  • Syndromic

    I’m not even fond of Boogie but Anita went after a wrong target because she was cocky fuckwit and she thought nobody could touch her. Good riddance to her when the karma catches with her.

  • Madbrainbox

    Sargon is many things but he’s not a harasser.He stated many times in his videos “don’t interact with these people”.But she needs to keep the narrative going.

  • John Smith

    >Niche Gamer harasses feminist hero Anita

    I bet some rainbow haired twink is itching to write an article with that title

  • Madbrainbox

    This probably gave her a boost in the short run but I think the drop will be bigger this time around.Every time she is pulling a stunt like this,it’s getting harder and harder for people to defend her.And harassing a member of the public from a podium is indefensible.

  • OzymandiasAeonis

    What about the progressive stack though? Plenty kinds of people would be punching up if they did this and why wouldn’t they be celebrated by letting their marginalized voices be heard through taking action against this privileged white woman who has abused her privilege, status and trained con-artist skills to place herself above proud trans-gendered and trans-racial individuals. She is also highly problematic for belittling gender norms and fashions that trans-gendered individuals adopt and cherish as their identities but are afraid to speak out because of Anita’s harassment narrative shield means they would be targeted by the press and possibly even the UN in retaliation. “Eating your own” as it’s called is the most natural state of Social Justice and quite beautiful to watch in action.

  • Rough

    Didn’t Boogie clear things up by saying that he just doesn’t want any beef with nobody at that time because anxiety issues but the anita-flavored beef came straight at him anyway? Also, I think for a good-natured guy like him meeting a cunt like her for the first time with the issues he has and , I think it’s a fair reaction.

  • Rough

    Nah, on the contrary. Her media cronies can make shit up about how she’s the victim here, but this time it’s different. She attacked a well-known kind-hearted guy that is being watched by some high profile Youtubers, noticeably Philly D.

    You bet yer ass that everyone is on her shit.

  • Rough

    I can’t deny that she has huge connections. Not because of he cause, but because the fear of potential manufactured outrage she can cultivate against the for not being politically correct.
    Pussies, all of them.

  • VersVlees

    Unlike Jack Thompson she also has her followers/white knights within the current year gaming media and to a lesser extend the gaming industry.

  • vonSanneck

    Who? I forgot about the person after so long. Think there’s a reason for it.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Shes already been exposed as a fraud a while ago, the only way she stays relevant is by capitalizing off of our anger which then proceeds to aid the SJWs in pushing their “misogynerds harassing women” narrative.

    If we stop giving her the attention she wants, she’ll fade away faster than Suey Park.

    Thanks to the skeptic community attending her panel and making countless videos about her recently, she’s now the talk of the town again.

  • Mr0303

    Great advice – Anita feeds on outrage and stop talking about her is the only way to send her into irrelevance.

    I also think people are not giving her enough credit. Everybody assumes that she saw the guys in the front rows, got triggered and called Sargon garbage, but I don’t think that’s the case. I think she more clever than that – after all she’s a con artist and not an ideologue. She was fading into irrelevance after her Tropes series ended and nobody was talking about her – not the sceptic community nor the SJW media. Anita feeds on victim bucks and outrage and she needed to create some. This is why she agreed to speak at the panel at Vidcon – she used herself as bait. She knew that some people will undoubtedly try to ask her a question or disrupt her presentation. When she saw Sargon she took the opportunity and baited him with an inflammatory insult hoping that he would fire back. He didn’t which was for the best, but then she played the whole sceptic community like a fiddle. Vidcon took her side as expected, the twats at Kotaku and Polygon got material to write-up the victim articles and every shitlord out there made a video about it further promoting her by sending her “harassment”.

  • RichardGristle

    It’s going to be Ralph. God fucking dammit, Ralph.

  • RichardGristle

    I give props to Patreon for that. Jewtube probably would have been a different story.

  • Mr0303

    The problem is that facts don’t matter. Ever since 2012 she had no arguments and she constantly lied about video games and her being a fan. If video evidence of her saying “I’m not a fan of video games.” can’t convince the people who support her nothing will. The Vidcon example is another great case study – she was absolutely in the wrong (with video evidence), but Vidcon took her side.

    Anita treats any contact or response as harassment, so dealing with her is like dealing with trolls – you can point out what they are doing, but engaging with them or giving them attention is just feeding them. So rather than going after her, we should boycott any institutions that support her.

  • Zanard Bell

    We can always dismiss her narrative since it’s very easy to do so, but I agree that we shouldn’t ignore her.

  • RichardGristle

    How to destroy the wicked witch:

    1) Don’t engage in petty squabbles on Twatter or comment sections with her or what’s left of her sycophant squad

    2) DO keep making well-thought-out videos explaining your criticism of her, using facts, statistics, and video proof

    3) Big YouTubers: stop making reaction videos about every little thing she does. If you’re going to talk abut her, make sure it’s in situations like this and that you use video evidence of her contradicting herself and use footage that discredits her words/actions. Needless to say, that’s not difficult to do at all.

    We got anti-gator Neofags going to prison left and right for fondling kids, we’ve got SJW game studios making disastrous products, we got important figureheads of their “movement” outing themselves as deceitful bullies, and we have their media making utter fools of themselves day in and day out.

    They’re checked. Don’t fuck it up.

    Edit: This applies to any “important person”. That Zoe chick as well, for example.

  • RichardGristle

    That’s exactly what sets her apart. The media is completely wrapped around her pinky, and she spoke in front of the idiots at the UN for Christ sake. It’s not some random little league YouTuber, unfortunately.

  • Madbrainbox

    Attacking Boogie was quite stupid.

  • i want anita and his feminist legion to join the army. they need more people that’s for sure. and women ain’t responding.

  • goodbyejojo

    people messed up the first time when they overreacted to her first videos, if we ignored her back then, we would have none of this, she purposely made her arguments bogus to rile people up, and she succeeded in that.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    What’s the point of keeping this bitch in the spotlight? we alrready know she’s a liar
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW-69xXD734
    Everyone knows she sucks
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIpw3wHn9Sk
    Everyone is tired of her shit
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRquPxdHNGE
    And we all know how she’s gonna respond to critisism
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3m-bcaCVbM

    Truth be told, i am actually gratefull for her existance, she was so evil that she brought CoD dude/bros WoW nerds and weebs togheter against her and she served as beacon of corruption making it easy to discard the opinions of anyone who ever tryed to suport her fatass as only a liar as corrupt as her would do so

  • So rather than going after her, we should boycott any institutions that support her.

    I agree with this. However, leaving her alone is not an option. The difference between her and trolls is the latter behave the way they do for entertainment purposes, not necessarily ideological nor financial. Anita, on the other hand, is clearly motivated to continue her work even without people doing anything to her. For that reason alone, we have to do something. Whether it’s by paying attention to her public activities or debating people, she cannot continue like this. Gamers didn’t ignore ideologues like Jack Thompson and Hillary Clinton – we engaged. Likewise, Anita should be held to the same rigorous criticism.

  • Part of me thinks she would’ve continued pursuing her goals even if people did nothing. That’s how evil wins, after all.

  • Mr0303

    The thing is we engaged and already defeated her arguments. Same with Thompson, but you don’t hear anybody talking about him nowadays. The difference between Jack and Anita is that he cannot profit from his victimhood – he’s (fucking) a white male. Anita on the other hand feeds every time somebody engages or responds to her – in that sense she’s like a troll – her motivations are not important (same with trolls – there are paid ones after all).

    I agree that we should pay attention to what she does, where she goes and who she speaks with (in our area of relevance – game developers), but engaging with her is absolutely pointless and in fact counterproductive – we cannot discredit her since facts don’t matter and the media is on her side.

  • buddyluv324

    From the video he put out about it, he did say he tried to clear things up to her. However one of my biggest issues with Boogie is that it ALWAYS comes down to “muh anxiety” when it comes to this sort of issue that pops up. It also doesnt help that he wants to please everyone and kiss ass, having something of a weak, passive demeanor. Also what was the point of him changing his speech when he found out Anita was going to be in the same panel as him? One would think that he would try to take better care of himself instead of him trying to kiss her ass and not realizing how the real world works.

  • That’s why I don’t think, say, tagging her in tweets is a good idea. I’m aware she feeds off the attention, but she’s still a free-moving individual who can act without provocation. That has to be considered.

    The thing about Thompson is, like Anita, even if their arguments are completely obliterated, gullible people still believe their lies. Thompson’s activism to this day still has an effect on the gaming industry, reinforced largely by right-wing Christian dipshits, ignorant parents and biased academics. Anita’s actions, likewise, will still take decades to fix. But to ensure none of that ever comes roaring back with a vengeance, the ideology has to be thoroughly disemboweled.

    I think at this point, the refutation of her beliefs cannot be directed toward her anymore. The argument itself is more important, as that is what sticks in the long run. Anita herself is merely the avatar, the representation of her beliefs. Even if she died tomorrow, her actions up to this point do the most damage.

  • Michael Richardson

    Fully agreed. If people had ignored her when she first started doing what she does, she wouldn’t even be a known entity outside of the feminist blogosphere right now.

  • すろぉもぉしょん

    Did we win Gamergate guys? Wait

  • Mr0303

    ” I’m aware she feeds off the attention, but she’s still a free-moving
    individual who can act without provocation. That has to be considered.” – yeah, but paying attention to every little thing she does isn’t too productive. Even the Vidcon situation – she called a straight white man garbage. Well, isn’t that totally new and unique?

    The difference is that Thompson never had the gaming media on his side and refuting him was enough. There will always be ignorant people who believe in bullshit, but there’s nothing we can do about that.

    I think we’re pretty much in agreement on the general strategy.

  • tetrisdork

    “He’s (fucking) a white male”
    “He is fucking a white male”

    I could go on a semantics rage, but that sentence is too funny to pass up. If only Jack did…

  • Mr0303

    Yeah, I know, but this is how AIDS Skrillex said it and for authenticity’s sake I had to preserve it like that.

  • InkViper

    The answer is yes, but like a gut-shot, it just takes some time to take effect! the SJW gamespress is already dead, they just don’t know it yet.

  • OtakuBrony230

    Yup, it’s going to happen sooner or later.

  • OtakuBrony230

    It does not matter if we message her or not. she can, and will say she’s being “harassed” without providing proof, and claim that talking about her in any form, just like what you’re doing in the vid, is harassment. With the type of power she got, people will believe her right off the bat I.E Polygon and Kotaku, and there is nothing we can do about that because blogs like those they like to suck her off.

    If it was that easy to ignore her, we would’ve done so a long time ago, but she got too much power, and too many connections that can say she is being bullied without her saying so herself.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Anita is simply too big to ignore.

    I mean, look at her. The bitch is fat.

  • Well, I don’t mean every single movement.

    The difference is that Thompson never had the gaming media on his side
    and refuting him was enough. There will always be ignorant people who
    believe in bullshit, but there’s nothing we can do about that.

    True.

  • I agree, if your anxiety is so bad then why bother trying to play diplomat to both sides if you’re always going to crumble at the first sign of provocation?

    We need someone who can be eloquent and level-headed, who won’t just resort to (albeit well-earned) mockery, but who also has a spine and won’t concede every single point made against them to spare feelings.

  • It’s tricky, there’s nothing I’d enjoy more than to never hear her name again, but the fact is she’s still getting invited on panels to talk about years-old harassment that probably never even happened, so even if WE ignore her, the outside MSM who take her at face value will still lap up every single word she says.

  • 2501

    Who gives a shit about vidcon or this non-issue. If everyone just avoided and stopped posting vids of Anita, she would’ve faded into obscurity.

  • totenglocke

    Boogie is a complete pussy and anyone who likes him should have immediately lost all respect for him after he grovled at her feet.

  • totenglocke

    Back when Jack Thompson was around, gaming magazines hired gamers to write articles about gaming. These days, gaming sites hire low GPA journalism majors to push political agendas. It makes the fight against censorship exponentially more difficult when the largest gaming sites are cheering on the censorship.

  • redragom

    Just one question? When was Anita actually relevant in the industry? I moved worlds and heavens, even hell just to know why… Never got an answers…

  • Donwel

    I’m actually genuinely surprised that patreon even bothered to investigate let alone find in his favour.

  • blacksun

    While a few people might have overreacted, it’s common knowledge that she and people like her faked the harassment that supposedly went on. These people will do anything for fame and power.

  • James Sunderland

    Say what you will about the complexities and intricacies of this multi nuanced situation and the volatility and scorn of the emotions involved,but I would definitely eat out Anita’s pussy though.

  • James Sunderland

    She got the big booty that the black guys like.

  • James Sunderland

    Gamer gate is a never ending battle.

  • James Sunderland

    Violence only solves certain problems,not this one. I would grab her by the pussy though.

  • VersVlees

    Yeah I agree, in the past the ones working at gaming magazines were mostly gamers. Essentially, we have entered eternal September.

    Can you imagine if we had the current year gaming press in the days of Jack Thompson. We would be playing NO FUN NO SEXY TIMES AND NO VIOLENCE allowed walking simulators now. Gaming today would be more like with restrictions you have in Australia or Germany except even more censored.

    And the worst thing is that the current year gaming media would applaud it.

  • Nagato

    As a black guy, I can attest to that not being the case.

  • Fenrir007

    I somehow doubt it. The people who still financially support her are 100% socjus goons, and they only interpret reality through the lenses of feminism.

  • Fenrir007

    Wasn’t he arrested or something?

  • Qshaw

    You didn’t really present any real counter points…. you just sound like an angry white guy. You fear change… i feel sorry for you.

  • Qshaw

    This is merely an echo chamber… nothing is really being examined here.

  • Zombie_Barioth

    The thing with Jack Thompson is while we engaged and in a sense ‘defeated’ him, he also didn’t give up the ghost just yet.

    He
    kept going, despite the damage to his career, and kept burning bridges.
    He went so far in what was likely a pursuit of revenge at that point
    that he wound up getting permanently disbarred.

    That’s about where we’re at with Anita, but the same thing won’t happen. Its essentially like challenging a well-respected cult.

    I think the best we can do is pick our battles, only bringing attention to the big stuff, like her behavior at Vidcon. The kind of behavior only the most devout can ignore.

  • She makes a lot of green tho

  • James Sunderland

    Show me a picture of her ass,she got them Armenian ass cheeks.Make you cry out for mama! No flat ass on her.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo
  • Ithaca TrenchGun

    Anita is only one head of the leftist academia/media hydra. For her and her ilk to be silenced, this entire apparatus would have to be fought and destroyed through whatever means. To be honest, unless there’s a mass social upheaval, she’ll still be given a platform, outlets like Kotaku, Polygon, (insert nu-male bug man rag here) will continue to spew their garbage, and companies like EA, Ubisoft, and the indies will push political narratives through games.

    The best thing we can do right now is to steal all you can steal from these type of devs (or just don’t play if those game aren’t your cup of tea), don’t give the big outlets traffic, and actively fight these people on social media. Essentially what GG was doing before it was co-opted by tone policing fags.

    We need to end feminism once and for all, sexbots and artificial wombs can do this and thus save mankind from this insanity.

    She has a uterus and thus we must all bow before her.

  • Madbrainbox

    She’ll never 100% go away because she has people that are supporting her financially but I don’t think she’ll be able to go back to the level of influence she had during the 2012-2014 period.

  • magicalfollower

    This scam artist is still relevant?

  • Alistair

    good advice as always but it hard not to write about her but i MUST try, therfore i shall write twice or three times to tell others.

    once that done, i wont ever say her name and so far i didn’t, because being a women if you are a femmist or not doesn’t immune you from criticism even though it may be hurtful just grow a thick skin.

    then i shall keep a watch and any involement make a game, pressure a dev wont be accepted.

  • Alistair

    what we could do is not give out her name, every time her name mention the cash till rings.

    so without mention her name wont be easy to get the cash. it only calling her name that she claims to be the victim.

    we could still keep tabs on her. but not given her fame by mention her name.

  • I don’t want a literal She Who Must Not Be Named situation. If you criticize her, you have to inform people of who she is.

  • Offendatron_5000

    I have the same opinion on Vidcon that I had(have) on the video game industry… If this industry is so poorly managed and cannot see someone so clearly fraudulant as someone working to destroy what is in their own financial interest for personal gain, then I can only hope they fail.

    Because there is no saving these people in a decision making capacity and they need to be replaced by different people/institutions.

  • InkViper

    I agree, It’s like Professor Jordan Peterson said, liberals are great entrepreneurs as starting businesses in the Tech sector, however the liberals are crap at running their own business once it’s started, and the video game industry is no different in that regards! that’s why you need to bring conservative minded people in to run your business… and if this was more widespread in the gaming industry and gaming press, a lot less people would have been allowed to give Anita any attention!

  • Darkling

    That Person is slipping into Oblivion. Instead of discussing that Person we should rather discuss why Vidcon and the Vlog Brothers did not draw the needed consequences.

  • malbhet

    “he’s (fucking) a white male” I would put that “a” before the “(fucking)” part for those who may misunderstand and make it into a jo…. uhhh never mind.
    As for Anita, there’s a simple solution to her BS, but it will take everyone who come across her BS articles to do it. Rather than interacting with her just post a viable contradicting article to hers every time, and when she says something in a video that totally contradicts any of her previous arguments, then just post her previous argument. The only thing that can get rid of Anita is Anita herself O_O

  • David Curry

    Sunlight is the best disinfectant. The more rational discussion takes place and the more that the truth spreads, the less room people like her have to maneuver.

    It’s like the “video game violence” controversy of the 1990s. Back then it was an accusation that caught people off-guard. After years of study, research and honest debate, anyone can quickly shut down the “video games contribute to violent society” accusation.

  • David Curry

    And that Wicked Witch of the West face that… uh.. does anyone like that?

  • No, we need to discuss Anita Sarkeesian to show people that she’s nothing more than an authoritarian crybully.

    If people ignore her it means that she gets away with whatever feminist garbage she’s pushing.

    And people should know by now that ignoring people like that is precisely why they’ve gained so much power in the first place.

  • Yes she is, she just hasn’t been s*itting on video games as much lately. Outside of video games she is influential in the feminism sectors.

  • Basically, it’s the government funding that needs to be stopped. Stop that and these parasites have no power.

  • Since around about 2013. In late 2016/2017 she moved on from video games to do other things, but unfortunately her work she has created is significant. Her Feminist Frequency videos are used as educational videos to indoctrinate children in schools.

    She’s basically one of the main reasons on why Western video game developers and publishers have become total cucks. All the garbage she spewed in the past has basically fear-mongered everyone in the industry into kowtowing to the holy vagina religion of feminism.

  • It’s good because raising the issue means that this is yet another example of Sarkeesian being a crybully. People need to see this, ignoring these kinds of people only gives them more power because it allows them to get away with the s*it they do.

  • Darkling

    which is exactly why we rather need to hold Vidcon an the Vlogbrothers accountable for their actions or rather inaction by not banning her.

    She needs to be watched carefully no question but we should do our very best to give her as little exposure as humanly possible.

    and i reiterate here we need to discuss the inaction of Vidcon and not give that person a platform to get exposure

  • She needs to be kept in the spotlight to let normies and newcomers see what an authoritarian crybully she is. If people ignored her she only gains more power as she would be allowed to get away with the s*it she does unchallenged.

    The reason why people like this (SJWs, feminists, etc) are in power is because we ignored them in the first place.

  • and i reiterate here we need to discuss the inaction of Vidcon and not give that person a platform to get exposure

    Agreed, but you can’t really avoid mentioning Sarkeesian in this situation considering that she’s the perpetrator. You can do your best to avoid mentioning her name when explaining the event, but people are going to want to know and ask on who the victim and perpetrator are.

    And not giving her a platform to get exposure is never going to happen because any company/organization/institution who refuses any platform for feminists is immediately labeled “misogynists, etc”

  • Notice how SJW morons like that always have to make it about race and gender when they say things like “angry white guy”. Just goes to show that they are ones who are genuinely racist and sexist.

  • Her Feminist frequency videos are used as educational videos in schools and colleges.

    She gets invited into the biggest organizations, institutions and women’s groups panels all over the world. She has even been invited into the UN for christ’s sake.

    The entire video games industry has to kowtow to her and her ideology.

    She’s got a significant amount of followers on social media who will attack anyone who publicly speaks out against her.

    This person is not some no-mark you can just ignore. Try to see things beyond video games.

  • Spot-on.

    Ignoring these SJW cultural marxists is precisely the reason on why they’ve gained so much power in the first place.

    If people care about their free speech and their rights, then ignoring these people and their ideology isn’t really an option. Either stay quiet and become a slave or speak up and preserve what little rights you have left.

  • Because the evidence is crystal clear that Sargon is the victim.

    If the evidence was unclear, Patreon would’ve sided with Sarkeesian and shut Sargon’s account down.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    My point was that we alrready have enough shit to burry her under a mountain
    at this point her she is using the shit we throw at her as fertilizer
    she is dishonest and irrelebant, we have enough proof of that, I don’t see the need to keep feeding her atention

  • Spot-on. Ignoring these types of people (feminists, SJWs, etc.) is precisely the reason on why they’ve managed to gain so much power to begin with.

  • No, it would probably be even worse if we ignored her back then.

  • Unfortunately the mainstream games media, developers and publishers, not to mention the news media and academia, do not ignore her and take her words and ideology as gospel.

    You really haven’t thought this through at all have you?

  • Michael Richardson

    The big, scary white males “attacked” her, and she got famous as a result. There are thousands of feminists as cynical and ridiculous as she is, but she gets attention because people like you decided to obsessively fixate on and criticize her, which got the attention of the media.

    As you said, the media takes her word as gospel anyway. What you people say about her is ignored. Talking about her constantly, then, is just going to give her more attention and continually reinforce her “victim” status.

    But please, continue to give this woman free publicity by incessantly whining about her instead of ignoring her and letting her fade into obscurity.

  • What about normies who are unaware of the situation, newcomers to video games and the next generation?

    Again, you haven’t thought this through have you?

    Yeah I’m a bit suspicious about that, the first time I ever heard of Anita was from the media and people like Movieblob and Jumbo Sterling because “she was being attacked” and I frequented pretty much every community that was supposed to be attacking her, so where did all that come from? Only after her first video dropped I noticed this barrage of response videos, rebuttals, etc. and the first one I saw was probably Thunderf00t.

    That’s interesting really. Since our side is against collusion, it’s hard to fight someone who thrives on it, but it seems honesty can really thrive thrives above corruption.

  • ProxyDoug

    People should know better than to ally themselves with Sarkeesian since these people have a history of getting off track or coming out as con artists like Tim Schafer. Also, if we look at Joss Whedon, we see that aligning with her gives no benefits, as people will attack you either way.

  • Michael Richardson

    Normies don’t care about Anita Sarkeesian. Of the ones who do, most will probably find a NYT article about her, read it, go: “Huh, shame what the world is coming to,” and promptly forget about it. People who are invested at all in this culture war stuff, regardless of how long they have been on the internet, will likely have already “picked a side.” And, frankly, I doubt the woman will be anything more than a random bit of trivia for future generations. At least, if you people stop giving her attention and let her fade into obscurity.

    But please, keep repeating your braindead one-liner over and over as a justification for your self-defeating behavior.

  • Michael Richardson

    It doesn’t matter if she was being attacked or not. What matters is that the claim that she was under attack was put out there, and the media would signal boost angry internet anti-SJW types to justify this claim.

    I’ve noticed a ton of attack videos directed at her after she already became well-known, which she used to further bolster her claims.

    It’s sort of like what the media did with Trump: they focused on him incessantly in an attempt to discredit him, but that strategy ended up backfiring on them.

  • lucben999

    It doesn’t matter if she was being attacked or not.

    Exactly, this is a synergy between Anita and the media, the people criticizing her don’t really play much of a role. Same thing happened with Zoe Quinn long before gamergate with the whole wizardchan saga. She just said she was being harassed and every outlet reported it as fact. I remember going to wizardchan after reading the Joystiq article on this to check the threads on Depression Quest and everybody was scratching their heads about what the hell was going on with all those articles.

    The case of Trump is also between him and the media, in Trump’s case it’s a backfire, but only partially, as it radicalized the anti-Trump side as much as the pro-Trump side. In both cases the media contributes polarization, a few people making an effort to ignore the subject of that polarization won’t do anything, the media is too far reaching and a considerable amount of people will be polarized regardless of how hard some groups try to ignore it.

  • Mike Campbell

    You know shit like this is why Sarkeesian is relevant again,I don’t why you making a big deal out of this just because she called Sargon a garbage human (even though nobody likes him anyway)

  • Dark Lord Ash

    This bitch is all about the identity politics, right? Then fight fire with fire.

  • Of the ones who do, most will probably find a NYT article about her, read it, go: “Huh, shame what the world is coming to,” and promptly forget about it.

    And some will actually believe every word of it and take it into account. Do not underestimate the sheer stupidity of brain-dead normies. They are ones who shape society.

    Some will forget about it like you say, but some will believe it. And seeing as this is an issue about so-called “harassment of women” from a woman, people will take this seriously and are more likely to believe it.

    Again, haven’t thought this through have you?

    And, frankly, I doubt the woman will be anything more than a random bit of trivia for future generations. At least, if you people stop giving her attention and let her fade into obscurity.

    Her work, including her Feminist Frequency videos, are used as educational videos in schools and colleges. There are also references to her work in educational textbooks as well.

    Young children are being indoctrinated with this crap at an early age, the age where they are the most vulnerable to influence and their brains being unable to make proper informed decisions for themselves.

    You can argue that there is a possibility of them growing out of it when they get older, but the chances are when indoctrinated at a young age, they turn into beta hipster SJWs. You know, the cucks we see now.

    Again, you haven’t thought this through. Or you’re just simply clueless, which I think you are.

    But keep repeating your braindead one-liner over and over as a justification for your self-defeating behavior, by all means.

    It’s not brain-dead, because you know that one-liner is absolutely killing your joke of an “argument”, lol

    The only brain-dead notion and self-defeating behavior is the “muh just ignore her and everything will be fine” line. Because that’s worked ever so well with SJWs hasn’t it? Remember like 2 decades ago when people like you told us to ignore the loud crazy people who campaigned on the streets with their signs? Well ignoring them is precisely what people did, and now they’re our school teachers, college and university professors, and politicians.

    By all means you are free to ignore Sarkeesian all you want, just go and enjoy your vidya games. But don’t get your feelings hurt when people actually look beyond video games at the bigger picture and realize that she is a problem that needs to called out.

  • How does it feel to be a professional bully?

    why don’t you ask Anita Sarkeesian that, she’s the expert at it after all

  • The difference is that Thompson never had the gaming media on his side
    and refuting him was enough. There will always be ignorant people who
    believe in bullshit, but there’s nothing we can do about that.

    Indeed. That’s the biggest difference between Thompson and Sarkeesian. I was around during the Jack Thompson days, and the mainstream games media journalists back then (which were magazines like EGM, Games Master, Edge, Nintendo Power, etc.) all sided with the gamers and spoke up for the gamers. Thompson didn’t have much a chance.

    Sarkeesian however, has the entire mainstream news media, games media and the video games industry on her side.

  • mewnani

    So is Boogie2988 a professional bully? How about all the other people she tore apart over the years? She’s a ham fisted tyrant who speaks for exactly nobody when it comes to video games and yet still has her own personal army of idiots that come to her rescue when she so much as breaks a nail. If I had a nickel for all the times she’s hurt people I’d be a rich lady.

  • And she really should have known better. I don’t care what her agenda is, but there are targets you don’t fire at.

    That’s like asking a lion to not kill and eat a sheep because the sheep is weaker

  • I say just forget her completely.

    Okay, let’s just say we all completely ignored what she did to Sargon of Akkad at VidCon.

    The SJW media (for example Polygon) releases a few articles that twist the story and lies saying that Sargon harassed her instead. You know, creating and spreading that narrative that Sargon was the harasser.

    Because we all ignored her, it means that there is hardly any counter to the narrative. Therefore, normies and newcomers will only see the stories of Sargon being the “harasser” and not see any dissent to it. Which makes them believe that it’s all true.

    Therefore do you not see the problem when people like her are ignored?

  • Why is Anita still continuing her scam? If she was smart she could have faded away with all her scam money but no she is still in the limelight. She is a moron as it won’t be long until she is caught.

  • Dark Lord Ash

    To be quite honest I’m more annoyed by two other elements in this whole thing than Shadow the femhog over her being a super cunt as per usual. One is how Vidcon’s staff handle this, now realistically this should be a real surprise to no one considering her bull, errr I mean her pull. But come on now, is there no one out there with some semblance of a goddamn spine? Bitch violates the rules and these clowns just salsa around the issue. And speaking of spineless here comes the second issue: Boogie. There comes a time when being a fence sitter and trying not to “offend” anyone needs to take a back seat. This whole thing with boogie needs to be use as a textbook example of what not to do. It is virtually impossible to live through life without rubbing someone the wrong way unless you’re living up in Mt. Everest or some other mountain. He shouldn’t have had to rewrite his speech because of genderswap Toucan Sam was there and he sure has hell should not have had to apologized to her. He’s a god forsaken coward and will be remembered as such. People need to stop pussy footing around when it comes to these clowns because that only furthers their ability to get away with shit. Fuck Anita, fuck Vidcon and fuck Boogie.

  • Offendatron_5000

    Yup. The time for ignoring any of this behavior long past, as people like Sarkeesian have been granted multiple platforms either by likeminded or weak individuals.

    And we’ve seen exactly what trying to be civil grants you as well, with Boogie’s interaction being the latest example.

    There is no “being above the fray” or room for civility at this point, because those things by the definition of those being argued against (Sarkeesian or other professional victims) is just complete capitulation to exactly what they want. There is no room for conversation, because they want it only one way. Their way.

    This is exactly like what happened with that professor at Evergreen College. Those speaking against him wanted him just to lay back and take it. There was no room to talk. Until people in position to NOT allow this to continue like the organizers of Vidcon take a stand and grow a spine (especially when there was clear video evidence that would have backed up the need to address bad behavior), this will not end.

  • Boogie was always a soul less and spineless greedy whore. His opinions are always what the mainstream and popular opinion are. He do this so he will always be loved by the majority so he makes more money on Youtube. He is afraid that he may have to get off his fat ass and get a real job.

  • CatCouch

    I really don’t think this is the right way to go about this issue. Images like this are just doing what Anita is doing to her detractors. Anyone can cherry pick 6 or so people with horrendous views that easily scare the large chunk of the population that’s not on any extreme.

    When people post stuff that implies Feminism is a threat because of the views presented by a few, a good chunk of the press is misrepresenting us, the gamers, the same way. They say we’re a threat for not agreeing with them. All they have to do is cherry pick a few comments out of this site and you get the same end result; everyone is a monster. Two wrongs won’t make this right. We all know this is wrong or it wouldn’t be a multi-year fight.

    Compared to cherry picking a few comments from Niche Gamer from Internet nobodies.

    Nowhere near the same, and not even a comparison.

  • CatCouch

    I will definitely give you that. They’re not equals in terms of power and influence but the damage done when one side paints the other as completely without merit remains. It’s a no win situation. It screws over and leaves out the vast majority of those in between. If you had the same power and influence they do they would be doing the same to you as you would be doing it to them in a never ending circle.

    The fact that something as relatively apolitical and innocent as Video games gets slanderous coverage from high level press shows how broken this line of logic is. It requires willful ignorance to a truly astounding degree.

    A recent example: The New York Times just published an opinion piece about trolls misrepresenting free speech in which the author uses Anita as her example of criticism being free speech while trashing gamers as stalkers, abusers and trolls. The amount wrong with it is staggering. It’s almost entirely made up of straw man arguments.

    It reads like a forum rant. Unfortunately for us, a good chunk of commenters on gaming forums do the same thing. It’s ranting in the absence of knowledge because neither side even pretends to talk to other side, instead opting to put words into others mouths.

    No one should be posting anything that biased. Not us and not them. We would all do better if we were the example of what’s right. Sites like this would be a great place to pick up the mantle on good journalism because ethics in journalism is fading pretty fast. Don’t rant, investigate and report. Lead with knowledge.

  • Fenrir007

    Sorry, I should have expanded upon it. I’m in favor of being reactive to her when she does something stupid like what she did, but not proactive. If she puts out a new video, for example, I think we are better off ignoring it completely. Talking about it only gives it more exposure. Unless, of course, a huge media storm happens to push it. She was sliding to irrelevance before, which was a great thing in my book. Now she has been catapulted to the spotlight again, with a victim narrative to boot. Sure, that was unavoidable, but it shows that talking about Anita is a losing proposition. She will never lose support from her rabid fanbase. Those who support her are too far gone to be swayed by facts. The result is that she only has space to grow through controversy.

  • Fenrir007

    I wouldn’t say never, she just needs a pretty good manufactured controversy to stir that victim narrative right up. But it will be hard, yeah.

  • OldPalpy

    Then you need better ways to act on that information, she’ll never respond to it she knows better than to so it’s pointless to expect her to honestly respond or debate. Ultimately the better path is to educate people who think she’s always been acting in good faith, people who like the “right side of history” rhetoric but can still be reasoned with using actual evidence, her followers and elements of the press can’t be as they’re on board with people like her not acting in good faith because “right side of history” justifies the means.

    Telling the countless numbers on the net how to act and who to not give attention to is pointless and a pure platitude and even if you somehow got 100% to agree with this idea people like her would just make shit up anyway.

  • Flamingfighter

    As Anita comes once again into the gaming sphere she already left, a signle question returns to my mind: What did she even do? Seriously. What results were gained? What acheivements could she put under her belt as a result of the Tropes VS Women campaign? DoA Xtreme 3 got stopped from coming over here due to the toxicity of the normal slew of journalist hate. Her likeness got put into Towerfall Ascension. And? I struggled to find literally any noteworthy accomplishment that actually amounted to anything other than the occassional minor dev at EA or Ubisoft saying they liked her, but none of her views and ideas (even the mildly sensible ones) have penetrated into gaming in much of anyway.

    I asked a lot of people I’m friends with at college if they knew who she was and no one had any answer. I then asked them if they knew what No Man’s Sky was and they said they remembered seeing Colbert doing an interview on it. I pointed out that Anita was also on Colbert and I had to find the video for them and replay it before they could remember what I was talking about. This and her interviews on her harrassment, her speech at the U.N. and all the mainstream media pushign and no one even remembers her over a video game that got featured on Colbert once. So it’s not like her viewpoints or personality have had any affect on anyone outside of gaming. Half of those people even knew who Malala Yousafzai and were shocked that this woman that they had never heard of beat her out on TIME’s 100 influential people feature.

  • CatCouch

    Can you elaborate on why he is a shitbag and a professional bully? Sure, he’s being somewhat abrasive and confrontational, but so is Anita Sarkeesian, her appearance at vidcon this year isn’t very different from this. Both sides are being accused of bullying the other side. It’s a difficult subject that shouldn’t be viewed as black and white.

    I’d really like to see some constructive criticism on this debate as I feel most discussions take place in echo chambers. Gamers and Anita supporters rarely converse without insulting and trying to hurt each other. I’d welcome your opinion on Anita and her critics here.

  • Nalferd

    Heh this just made me hate feminism more.

  • Nalferd

    Wish she could just find inner peace and stop doing BS.

  • If she puts out a new video, for example, I think we are better off ignoring it completely. Talking about it only gives it more exposure.

    I’ll use my previous example again but with a few changes:

    Okay, let’s just say that Sarkeesian makes a new video about how video games are misogynistic. It’s full of flaws, inaccuracies and slander. You know the usual garbage.

    We all completely ignore the new video and let her carry on spreading it around Social Media with no dissent. All the Twitter and Tumblr SJW retards spread it around with no dissent.

    Some of the mainstream SJW media will no doubt praise it and help to spread the video around as well. They may even post it up on their websites.

    Because we all ignored her video, it means that there will be no dissent or counter to it. Therefore, when it eventually spreads to normies, newcomers, new gamers and the next generation, they will not see any dissent to it, which means that they will take the video as gospel and believe every word of it. It will be accepted as the world-wide opinion.

    Again, do you not see the problem when people like her are ignored?

    Sure, that was unavoidable, but it shows that talking about Anita is a losing proposition.

    I think not talking about her is the losing proposition.

    No dissent and no counters to her arguments means it eventually becomes accepted and the norm. It also means normies, newcomers and the next generation see her as “in the right”.

    To SJWs, Silence is Acceptance.

    She will never lose support from her rabid fanbase. Those who support her are too far gone to be swayed by facts. The result is that she only has space to grow through controversy.

    The whole point of calling her out and countering her arguments has never really been to convince/change her fanbase/followers. It’s about creating enough factual dissent so that normies, newcomers and the next generation can see that she is a piece of s*it, and that her opinions are flawed and quite frankly, a load of horse faeces.

    If we ignore her and there is no dissent, people will see her views and ideology as the world-wide accepted opinion.

    The world does not revolve around us. Do realize that there are people who don’t know about her work, such as normies, newcomers and the next generation. They need to be informed.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    Better ways to act?
    Just spam those 4 videos wherever she pops up
    Anyone but the most brainwashed sheeple will see through the bullshit
    Sargon and all the other youtubers there made a mistake
    They went to one of her conferences to ask questions expecting any pther kind of response to what they got. What they should have done is take projectors and loudspeakers with them to pop those videos into the room with everyone watching and ONLY THEN confront the bitch about them

    As you said, she’ll never respond, unless her hand is forced and being cornered like that in a live event is the best thing i can think off
    my best bet is the bitch knew she was getting into another shitstorm when she took a crap on Sargon, but not only did she not care, as she had steam to blow off on him for rekting her rep, but she also saw it as a chance to crawl back into the spotlight for some extra victim bux by riding on the coattails of the people who made a name for themselves debunking her bullshit

    Reaching the UN was her highes achivement and it wass all for naught, nowadays her name only comes up whenever the words lie or scamm are involved and the industry knows better than to pay her any sort of atention, best she can get is some indie nobody kissing her ass in the credits roll or some random celebrity paying her lip service

  • Tim Cooper

    Her videos regarding games are either maliciously dishonest propaganda, or like a student who did no work on a research paper and just cut and past some google blobs together and turned it in. I have even seen allegations of plagiarism, but don’t know enough to comment. Anyone who has played the games in her media could see that, and anyone who has played other games which counter her points can see it. Scrutiny of a public figure’s statement is not harassment. IF someone like anita puts out numerous statements attacking a group of people(in this case gamers) AND makes hundreds of thousands of dollars doing it, she cant then say she is a victim when gamers respond negatively

    I think that if /v/ had ignored her back when she was laying down the bait traps to reap the “muh harassment” narrative to inflate her patreon, she wouldn’t even exist today.

    >We all completely ignore the new video and let her carry on spreading it around Social Media with no dissent. All the Twitter and Tumblr SJW retards spread it around with no dissent.

    I think they will only spread it within their bubble, so I don’t see much point in validating its existence.

    >Some of the mainstream SJW media will no doubt praise it and help to spread the video around as well. They may even post it up on their websites.

    If that happens, then it’s a different matter, but only if that happens.

    >Because we all ignored her video, it means that there will be no dissent or counter to it. Therefore, when it eventually spreads to normies, newcomers, new gamers and the next generation, they will not see any dissent to it, which means that they will take the video as gospel and believe every word of it. It will be accepted as the world-wide opinion.

    If we start ignoring her, there is already a mountain of evidence against her lunatic theories out there. The only thing we gain is preventing her revival. I mean, let’s face it – we weren’t even hearing about her for the past months or even year. She was relegated to a footnote already.

    >No dissent and no counters to her arguments means it eventually becomes accepted and the norm. It also means normies, newcomers and the next generation see her as “in the right”.

    The dissent is already there. She doesn’t even bring anything new to the table, it’s always the same recycled arguments. Normies etc won’t hear our talking points since they visit Cucktaku. SJWs wont either since they stick to Mary Sue. The people that make videos against Anita are mostly popular with the GG crowd, which means they are preaching to the choir.

    >The whole point of calling her out and countering her arguments has never really been to convince/change her fanbase/followers. It’s about creating enough factual dissent so that normies, newcomers and the next generation can see that she is a piece of s*it, and that her opinions are flawed and quite frankly, a load of horse faeces.

    I’m saying that she will always have money, so the only resouce management at play is notoriety. Do we help her increasing hers? Do we give her a spotlight when she has is sort of gone from the scenario? If she stays irrelevant, normies won’t even get in contact with her. But if they do? It will be through Kotaku etc, and they will not present any of the points we raise in their articles.

    Professional victims like Anita are similar to the Hydra from Greek Mythology. No matter how many times you attack them, they thrive off the pain.

    Anita was already beaten when people exposed her for having ghost writers, an indifferent and borderline hostile attitude towards videogames, and using the SJW gaming press for her crony capitalistic gains.

    All she has to survive off of now is attention which is why she did things recently like attack Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, and famous Youtuber Sargon. She knew people would take the bait and give her the attention she wants. If we all continue to ignore her, then it would make it difficult for both her and the SJW press to profit off of her victim status when they have nothing to point to.

  • But by doing so, she can continue to go to places like Google and the United Nations to enforce her ideology. Obama, for example, got away with a lot of shit because not many people dared criticize him. So you’ll see people still have a fairly positive image of him despite being fucking awful (he signed away the Internet to the United Nations, after all).

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Obama was a different case, the congress is filled with mostly leftists, which is why Trump has such a hard time enforcing his immigration policies. Its all about mob mentality here, because when people team up in large numbers, they can get anything they want.

    Anita was pimped out by the media because she got too much attention, and she used the hate she got as an excuse to cry victim in order to earn more coin. Remember Suey Park? She was the SJW behind #CancelColbert, but it didn’t take off because not enough people care about Colbert, and SJWs had a harder time trying to convince people that Asians are oppressed, so she ended up fading away without even a Patreon, because she didn’t get the attention she needed.

    My point is that if more people ignored Anita and stopped giving the press that promotes her more clicks. Then she will no longer be profitable, and thus disappear.

  • Obama was given endless praise in the media throughout his eight years of office, and as a result of no critical eye nor counter-narrative against him, if you were to ask what people thought of him, they’d say “he was pretty good”.

    The last thing we want is for a widespread acceptance by normies towards Anita, where they end up having a positive image of her. To do that, you can’t ignore her. In fact, the whole “ignore her” argument sounds to me like people just wanna pretend the problem doesn’t exist. You can’t fight a problem by doing nothing about it.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    I never said ignore from the beginning, my point is that the battle was already won when countless people debunked Anita’s arguments and exposed her. When she attacked Sargon, she was literally whining about how when people Google her, they will mostly find results of people exposing her.

    My point is that people need to stop giving attention to her and the press that promotes her, because they profit from our outrage. Anyone outside the internet and gaming world is most likely not going to know or care about who she is, but if they come across her, they will mostly likely see that shes a fraud.

    If she was truly defeated, then why does she have so many connections to companies like EA, and got the majority of Western gaming companies to capitulate to her beliefs? What about Intel? Google? The UN? A defeated person could not get these high-status connections.

    Do you believe criticizing Anita is outrage?

    Not without people there to explain who she is, they won’t.

  • SiliconNooB

    It’s pretty hard to engage her directly since you have to pretty much buy a Vidcon ticket in order to do so. I’m pretty sure that every NG commenter is probably already blocked by on her on Twitter [irrespective of whether they have ever actually tried to interact with her], and I’d wager that she doesn’t even read her Youtube messages unless they are from Youtube.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    Maybe defeated was the wrong word, I mostly meant that she was already wounded when she was exposed. She has no control over the western industry, developers being cucked is a product of our political environment and the fact that they fear being blackmailed by the cucked press, this is why a lot of veterans are being forced out their companies like at Bioware or Naughty Dog.

    The globalists or elitists or w/e have an agenda to push for internet censorship, and Anita is merely just their puppet.

    There is nothing left to criticize of Anita, we already know shes a fraud, and she relies on attention to keep making money. When we keep criticizing her, it makes her more relevant, and it gives the SJW press an excuse to keep perpetuating her as a victim, because it also helps them get clicks when sites like Polygon write rageporn articles like about how Anita was the victim at Vidcon, despite having no evidence.

    It also really depends on the kind of person you show, and chances are that the more beta someone is, the more likely they would fall for her bs.

  • It’s funny, because I’m actually still not blocked by her. Not sure why, either.

  • SiliconNooB

    That is funny – my understanding was that the blockbot blocked you even if you were just a follower of someone who was associated with GG. I’d just assumed that everyone here would be blocked regardless of whether or not they actually participated in GG.

  • She still perpetuates the PC culture, though. There was an interview Anita did at E3 where the Dishonored guy – producer? – confirmed that feminist “criticism” influenced their decisions regarding female characters. So even if she’s not the only person ruining the industry, she still has a stranglehold.

    We’re literally going in circles at this point, repeating the exact same arguments. We’re just gonna have to agree to disagree.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    I agree with your point, Im just overall saying that its better to direct our anger against the press and vote with our dollars when it comes to developers.

  • Jettythesunfish

    As a surprise to no one, yes, she is very disingenuous. A good example is when she points out parts in certain games that allow you to kill or harm a female NPC while flat out disregarding the fact that in those same games you can also kill male NPCs. In addition, some games will flat out penalize you for hurting NPCs, regardless of what gender they are. It’s stuff like that that makes people wonder whether she really plays the games she tends to criticize.

    Agreed. As they say, Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

    In other words, monitor them with a very tight leash.

  • Phasmatis75

    When someone attacks your hobby with the express purpose of changing something they are not involved in, you have no obligation to be courteous and you sure as hell should never accept middle ground. You were hurting no one and enjoying yourself when someone else invaded, don’t fall for this trick.

  • Ninjagai

    These SJWs need to focus on a different industry. I hear golfing is very sexist. They should attack that instead.

  • Galbador

    She is a white Jlo with the same IQ… near zero XD

  • James Sunderland

    I agree,I agree.
    *BUT* I would still eat out her asshole though.
