i feel uncomfortable and out of place in 98% of all situations
that settles it
we have to get rid of the ocean
the most incredible scene in all of red vs blue tbh
"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."
Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes vs. Women series. Its an amazing and poignant series of videos and if anyone hasn’t seen them I highly recommend them, you can check them out here feministfrequency.com Feminist Frequency is also a fantastic non profit so definitely support her if you get the chance!
The artwork is lovely, but I have to admit, it is hilarious that you have Femshep on the cover when Anita vlified Femshep as nothing more then a sexist, misogynistic archetype that needs to die. She also declared Mass Effect games as sexist as well.
If you support Anita Sarkeesian then I heavily question your gamer cred. Not only is she a thief and scam artist, she’s been proven to not know what the fuck she’s talking about with games since pretty much day one.
Also, she has not proven that her project is not-for-profit. NFP would require her to fully disclose her project’s monetary income and expenses. She has not done so and, in fact, was challenged by one of the artists she stole work from to prove it. Rather than prove it and keep her art, they dropped her stolen art. Why? Because I’m pretty sure disclosing what she did with those thousands of dollars would turn a lot of people against her.
Lets be fucking honest. This isn’t a celebration of female gamers. This is an advertisement for Anita Sarkeesian. If you gave a shit about us, you wouldn’t support a woman who is not only making the industry worse for us BUT also doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Stop being manipulative. Gamers, male or female, don’t like bullshit. And your picture wreaks of it.
Come on now. Don’t attack people for liking something you don’t. It is entirely possible for someone to watch and like her videos without agreeing with every single thing Anita has ever done.
Anita is not making the industry worse for anyone.
1. No. If you actively support Anita you’re supporting her cherrypicking and misinformation. Things gamers should know, like the shit she tried to pull with Hitman. You’re supporting her stealing art and footage. You’re supporting how she scammed, and continues to scam, people out of their money.
2.a. False. Anita is consulting on Mirror’s Edge 2, a game she has gone on record saying promotes violence against women because the female protag can die. A game she has gone on record saying “the controls are too hard for women.”
2.b. More than one developer has gone on record saying she has influenced them. In particular, Anthony Burch, lead writer of Borderlands 2, feels BAD because of Anita’s commentary about using a “damsel in distress” when the only reason she was a damsel was because Lilith was so ungodly powerful they needed a reason to explain why she doesn’t turn Handsome Jack into chunky salsa. You understand that right? Anita has actively changed a game dev’s opinion, making him feel BAD about making a strong female character because she HAPPENS to be a damsel for the last 25% of the game.
I’m actually well researched on this. I have to be. Because whenever I dare speak up against Anita’s bullshit people like you crawl out of the woodwork.
This is not about ‘liking something you don’t’. This is about promoting a thief, a scam artist and somebody who is actively damaging he image of women in gaming and the industry as a whole. And the fact that you try to twist it to BE about ‘liking something you don’t’ is both condescending and insulting to my intelligence.
Stop it.NUCLEAR LAUNCH COMPLETE
She’s poison. She’s fucking with peoples minds and it’s gonna ruin the gaming industry if she gets anymore followers. She’s full of bullshit and creates lies about female protagonists with strong roles (Femshep) I really fucking hate that woman.
Don’t settle for Anita, YOU DESERVE MUCH BETTER
Anita is not a good role model
