Anita Sarkeesian Discussion

Because I think this is necessary.

I just want to set some ground rules: this is specifically about Anita.  You can compare and contrast her with others, but this is about her, her associates, and her "creations".

Oh, joy! Another GG thread!!11!!!1!

Quote from: Ultimate Chatbot That Totally Passes The Turing Test
I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

So what non-GG things have she and her associates done to invoke your ire?

Meh.

If anything it looks like you should be focusing most of your attention on Mr. Dr. Johnson (he has a pH.D. in sociology) since his work seems to be the inspiration and created the paradigm Anita works within.

Who's Dr. Johnson?

It should be pretty obvious if you actually took the time to look at the image you posted.

But that would take away from the outrage.

I don't know much about him.  If he's a sexist scumbag, then I'll go after him too.

Then why is that picture even there?

Because Anita used a tragic shooting to plug a book that quoted her.

While I have little respect for Anita Sarkeesian as a public personality, I do not recognize her as someone worthy of either mockery or admiration, much less hatred. Therefore, I see no reason to have a topic specifically for her as an individual.

*snip*

Okay. How are we supposed to react to this?

Get outraged over her claim that school shootings are ALWAYS commited by men? Sure, she did state in another tweet that "only" 98% of school shooters are male, something you know very well since it was present in the image you coincidentally edited out... but I guess a sweeping generalisation in a format limited to 140 characters is still an unforgivable crime.

Perhaps that book she's promoting is one we are supposed to know and hate? Apparently not, since you claim not to know the name of its author Dr. Allan Johnson..

What about her thesis that "ideas of toxic masculinity" are to blame for school shootings? I guess you could construe that as misandry...

Or maybe it's the very use of the word "patriarchy" that should have us up in arms.


Because Anita used a tragic shooting to plug a book that quoted her.

... oh.

I mean, self-promotion in a perfectly relevant context is already such a HUGE breach of ethics. But promoting a book because she appears in the cover of the latest edition, therefore increasing her visibility to people that are already following her? The fiend! The witch! She should be burnt at the stake for this!

Wow, that's sooo much worse than what the NRA does in those situations.

Then again, maybe she was mentioning the book because it talks about masculinity and violence and thought it addressed in detail what she was bringing up in her tweets. I somehow doubt she brought the book up because she stands to get gobs of royalties for her one paragraph blurb if it sells well.
