Anita Sarkeesian, aka Feminist Frequency, is a cunt. A massive, massive cunt.
If you're reading this you probably already think that, and if you don't, you're more than likely just as much a cunt as her.
It's often assumed, for some reason, that I assume with Anita, as she seems to share my 'anti-men' mentality. Maybe she does, but her and I are on two completely different levels. I accept the singular fact that women in this country are not nearly as oppressed as people like her see. There is no true 'patriarchy' in which the noble 'feminists' must fight against to obtain equality and freedom. Women in this country live on the top side of numerous double standards that give them advantage in society. We are not disadvantaged, unequal, or otherwise put down unless we allow ourselves to be, or if you're Anita, tell yourself that you are everyday due to a false and self-righteous victim mentality.
Video games, Anita? Video games. Video games are the reason women are oppressed. Anita, is it because of video games that women in third world countries are forced into burqas, into slavery, sex trafficking, or otherwise oppressed by men? Is it because of video games that legislators in this country are so interested in regulating what I do with my vagina? Is the fact that Link from the Legend of Zelda isn't a woman so horrible and oppressive to women that you must take over 100 thousand dollars from other delusional idiots who agree with anything that would feed their own victim mentality?
You haven't played one of those games. Not one.
I myself am not a huge gamer myself (in case it isn't obvious) and even I can tell that what you claim about many of them are complete bullshit. Showing two seconds of a clip, of a woman being hit, for example, could be out of context, and you do that with dozens of them.
Would I like more women in video games? Yes, Anita, I would. But the fact remains simply that games are about the game. It's about having fun on an adventure in a virtual world, and your bringing arbitrary drama and forcing the point of 'sexism' in video games is not only stupid in callous, but outright distasteful to the people who devote their lives, working for years on these games only to have them called trash by a dumb cunt on the internet, because they didn't want to write in a mary sue perfect female character.
Fuck off, Anita Sarkeesian. Fuck off and don't dare call yourself a feminist.
I'm really sick of people assuming I agree with her, so here's my rant explaining why not. Naughty words incoming.

Anita Sarkeesian is a cunt because all feminists are cunts, but there are a few other factors that make her even more of a cunt than she already is by default. Firstly, her assertion that all games are feminist is absolute garbage. Games with female protagonists exist, and many non-lead females in games are not even half as victimized as she tries to make it seem with video editing. Which leads to my second point, that being that she's a big fat fucking liar. If there were any legitimate argument to be made, she wouldn't have to cut the clips so short to lose context. She also wouldn't have disabled ratings and comments on all her videos if she could logically defend her bunk assertions. Thirdly, and probably the worst of all, is that she profits off the suffering of women. Even if the plight is manufactured, Anita Sarkeesian's kickstarter made her money on the premise of violence against women in games. How the fuck is that not exploitation of women, by a woman!? I thought she was trying to help women...

Totally with you on this one. 
I'm an avid gamer, however, there are plenty more important things to worry about than women not being properly represented in the gaming world. 
Women in countries such as the UK, or USA, and in fact most countries in continental Europe have it pretty good. As a woman I'm entitled to education, healthcare, the choice on whether to have children or not. I can dress how I want, if I'm beaten or raped I have the right to take the person who did it to court. I'd say my life is pretty damn good. 

Now, couple that with women's rights around the world; in certain places women are not allowed an education, they can't even read or write, they cannot leave the house without being accompanied by a man. They have no choice in the matter of children, or birth control. They can be beaten, raped, and even killed for no other reason than the fact that they are female. In many cases, women are only allowed to be seen by a female doctor, but seeing as women are not allowed to be educated, there pretty much are no female doctors.

Now, what's the bigger issue? Some game developers choosing to make THEIR OWN GAME how they want to, OR the fact that women are treated like animals in other places? 
If she spent more time addressing real problems rather than feeding her massive victim complex, perhaps I'd agree with her. But the fact that Princess Peach keeps getting captured is not more important to me than the right to healthcare for women.

My sentiment, exactly. Thank you.

I think she brings up valid arguments.

My problem with her is that she tends to bring up very old examples (from as far back as the 1960s) and tends to associate femininity exclusively with traditionally feminine traits, claiming that a feminist character has to exhibit them. (Considering those traits are emotional, weak, and dependent, I don't think it would make a very good game. :U)

She does bring up decent points from time to time, however. Her tropes-against-women videos mention that there are many situations where men rescue helpless female friends, girlfriends, and wives, but few in the reverse, and that the general tone makes the woman easily replaceable with an inanimate object.

Media does play a fair role in the institutionalization and perpetuation of sexism in first-world countries, and it's mostly on a subconscious level.

Also, just because there are people who have it worse doesn't mean we shouldn't try to improve conditions here as well - provided it doesn't prevent others from improving their conditions.

I agree with you that just because there are people who have it worse, doesn't mean we should just ignore conditions in our own society, of course we should try and better our lives. 
My issue is that we should try and at least improve the living standards around the world before we focus on these issues. 
I think that if we put more effort into improving the education of all young people, women included, better healthcare and understanding of health in countries where health standards are dire, and promote a better living standard for women (and men!), THEN we can move onto issues such as sexism in the media. 

I just think that if we're going to have true equality for all, then we cannot leave other countries behind. I'm not suggesting we force other cultures to take our beliefs, but I just think that helping stop the horrible treatment of women around the world is a little more of a pressing issue than women in video games.

My issue is that we can do both. Improving conditions in one place would facilitate improving them in others, not prevent them, as the issue is societal and not related to resources.

Perhaps trying to detract from a radical feminist's point of view would be more competently done by not referring to her by a sexist insult with your first line. Whether or not one agrees with your point, it kind of makes you look like an hypocrite.

"Cunt" is hardly sexist. You hear people calling others "dick" without taking issue.
