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.

If feminism is about equality, why is it called feminism?

Funny that someone calling themselves a feminist would use a term almost always used in a derogatory manner for referring to the female genitalia as a slur word....

I guess I'm a c*nt then because I like and agree with what she has to say.  First of all, you're wrong to assume she is "anti-men." Strike one. Have you even taken the time to watch her videos.. ALL of her videos? If you have, then you will understand that she is a media critic. She analyzes SEVERAL different forms of media.. not just video games. She analyzes video games, commercials, TV shows, magazines, websites, songs, etc. Whether you want to admit to it or not, despite the progressiveness of equality among men and women, women still receive lower salaries and wages, domestic violence is at an all-time high, etc. We still live in a male dominated world. The world is not equal among men and women, different races, and differently sexually oriented people. I realize you wrote this over a year ago but your comments were so shallow and childish that I had to long onto this account of mine (in which I hadn't visited in SO long and had to reset my password) just to defend her. If you can't see how sexualized our media has become, specifically toward women, then you've clearly been brainwashed a LONG time ago. And by not defending women, you're doing YOURSELF a great disservice. In fact, you're part of the many self-victimized women that are out there by not taking a step back and realizing how corrupt society has become. 

Anita is not playing the victim. She is educating people on the effects that media have on our lives (whether it's fantasy or not), specifically bringing attention to how women (and men!) are being portrayed in the media. She talks about how men are getting the short end of the stick too in media, being portrayed as being perverse predators that lack feelings and that want to kill everything and everyone that threaten to take what is theirs. But because portrayals of women in media directly impact women in negative ways, while men are rewarded for their bad behaviors in video games, the attention is more centered on women. 

Anita is NOT saying that video games are the reason women are oppressed. I think you're only reading into and inferring what YOU want to hear because you're attacking her for EVERYTHING. Calling her a c*nt doesn't make you the bigger person either. She's heard that PLENTY from people like you who feel SO threatened that your precious virtual fantasies are going to be affected by her comments. Well, calm down. You can disagree all you want, but your little rant is extremely childishly and doesn't support your rebuttal at all. In fact you haven't made any valid arguments against her. You're just calling her names. So your "rant" has been a waste of internet space. Because the issues she brings to light are very real, and you've done nothing to help it. Sure this is your deviantart page and you can do whatever you want, but if you're opening it up to opinions, then here it comes. 

Clearly you don't understand the point of her videos. She is not saying video games are the reason women are oppressed. Video games, media, etc. are extensions of our society. Ideas, values, morals, etc. in our cultures linger in our brains and are then represented in magazines, movies, tv shows, video games, etc. These negative images put out through the media perpetuate these ideas into the viewers. The viewers begin to believe them, and accept them as true because we see it being fed to us over.. and over.. and over again. That's just how our brains work. Monkey see, monkey do. If you don't think you've been affected by the media then you're clearly brainwashed because EVERYONE has been affected and is affected ALL the time. 

No video games are not the reason for sex slavery, sex trafficking, porn, etc. If you know anything about history, it's been going on since humans could figure out that sex was a good product to sell, which has been.. for a VERY long time. The issue though.. and what Anita is trying to bring awareness to, is that we are using these negative portrayals of women in everyday life (not just women, but racism, and homophobia), and we keep producing things that exploit it and make it fun/funny, and it just makes it worse. MEDIA IS MAKING OPPRESSION WORSE. That is the moral of all of this. Media is taking what is out there, making it consumable, and reinforcing negative ideals and so the issues never get worked out, eradicated, or stood up to; they just get "accepted as is" or made into something fun (like having sex with a hooker, then shooting her and stealing her cash like in the GTA series). 

LOL How can showing two seconds of a clip of a woman being hit (which doesn't happen in her videos by the way) taken out of context?? No woman acting as a sex object/victim should be hit.. EVER. What the f*ck kind of context could that be taken out of?? What a ridiculous claim. 

Anita doesn't call any video game trash. I cannot believe how bias your little rant is. Yea people might devote their lives to making these video games, but if it doesn't better society and they're pumping out games like GTA, Saints Row, and Duke Nukem it doesn't make them a better person just because they devote their lives to it. They're just making the world progressively worse. They fall into the same category (albeit on the very VERY mild end of the category) as sex trafficking, drugs, racism, etc. because they're promoting it through their video games and they think it's fun, and they don't care about the messages it portrays because HEY! It made Game of Year and made them $$MILLIONS$$ of dollars! Whoo hoo! Good for them! Yea.. I think not. You want to devote your life to mindless endeavors for a "cheap" buck? Go for it. This is America. No one is going to stop you. And one cause from a woman named Anita Sarkeesian isn't going to be able to stop it either. 

Also, just because a game has sexist tropes within them, doesn't make them inherently bad. It's disappointing but doesn't make them trash. And it doesn't matter whether a video game, or piece of media is "fantasy." Our brains can distinguish between fantasy and reality, but it recognizes and accepts patterns as well, whether it's fantasy or real. The more and more sexual and violence images we see, the more we become desensitized to it, accept it, and recall it. It not only affects our we perceive ourselves but how we interact with society as well. Here's an example, everyone knows that Axe deodorant doesn't REALLY attract many attractive females to you.. but does the "fantasy" get you to buy it? Yup, it sure does. The "fantasy" affected the actions of the consumer in real life. We're a very manipulative species. If an Axe commercial can get us to buy it, then video games, tv, movies, etc. are just as guilty of influencing how we think, learn, and interact with people.

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...

"Firstly, her assertion that all games are feminist is absolute garbage?" Don't you mean "sexist?" Feminism is a good thing. And she didn't say that all video games are sexist. Clearly you didn't take the time to watch her videos either. So you're talking out of your asshole just like Jacqueline did above. But I shall proceed.

I don't get why you people are saying that she's cutting clips - she fully plays out the scenes she uses as examples.

The ratings are THERE on her videos, btw, but she took down the comments section NOT because she's afraid to encounter what people like you have to say, but because the crude comments she was receiving were DEATH and RAPE threats just because she brought attention to this issue. It was devaluing her videos and taking away the integrity of her videos by leaving up the comments. She also didn't want to subject anyone else, who might defend her or agree with her, to have to endure sexist comments from people like you. It was a smart move on her part because.. why bother with ignorant and closed-minded people like you? Why have your baseless opinions trash her cause? Yeah. I wouldn't leave the comments section up either. No one wants or need to read your shit. 

She's not profiting off of the suffering of women.. are people on this website really this stupid? Good Lord. She receives DONATIONS from people who want to see her bring awareness to these issues of sexism in media - not just video games. She uses the money for her research. It is for a cause. Anyone can do these kickstarter websites and can donate to whatever cause they want to. If you know what the definition of exploitation means, then you'd know that IF she WAS exploiting women (which she isn't) she would be taking the money she has earned and using it toward things that negatively impact women or for her own personal needs, which is not what she did with the money. She used the money to bring awareness to sexism in the media. She has used it for a GOOD cause and she is not exploiting anyone. And what the f*ck do you care about "helping women?" Throwing the "cunt" word around, calling all feminists "cunts" sounds like you SURE support women's rights.. You're a complete joke.

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.

Again. Another closed-minded comment from someone who doesn't watch her videos. She doesn't just talk about video games. She talks about other forms of media as well. She focuses on video games, however, because the sexism is more widespread and recurrent through this media than through other forms of media that reach people especially men - who continue to treat women poorly without the help of video games. 

WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!? Who said that women's representation in games are "the bigger issue?" You guys are only taking WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR and taking things OUT OF CONTEXT (like you ironically blame Anita for) and twisting everything. YES there are SEVERAL issues that light is shed upon. Anita is merely talking about this one thing.. MEDIA. I think what she has to say is pretty damn important because she basically shows us that the stereotypes perpetuating throughout the world - that women shouldn't have an education, are dumb, should only be around to please a man, are only good for sex and making babies, etc. - ARE REITERATED and SPIT BACK OUT AT US through media INCLUDING video games. Media like video games MAKE THESE STEREOTYPES WORSE because it's pushing it back at us OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN until we "accept" it or find it funny, etc. 

I think her cause brings EVEN MORE ATTENTION to how women are treated not just in our country but all over the world. The pervasiveness of strippers and whores in video games, brings attention to sex slavery which is constant throughout the world. I'd say that's an eye opener. 

OHhhjoohhhhh! Victim complex! Sounds like you copied the two idiots before you.

Would like to point out, my comment was posted over a year ago, and in that year my opinions have changed.

However, there's no need to be rude.
