Butts, butts, butts

I’m not a fan of Anita Sarkeesian. I mean, obviously I was on her side when her discussion of sexist stereotypes in computer games resulted in people sending her rape threats. It’s crazy that even talking about feminist issues can still be so dangerous, and in the grand scheme of things I’m on her team. But she calls sex workers ‘prostituted women’, a degrading term used by radical feminists to deny their agency. And as far as I know she has not yet responded to the many sex workers who have let her know that term is offensive and hurtful, which is such a crappy but typical thing to do for radfems.. Talk about sex workers, claim you want to help them, but do everything you can to ignore them and not give a damn about their wishes. Meh.

Anyway, her latest video is about butts. I thought it was good.

It’s ‘SEX WORKER’, Anita! Get with the program so I can be your fangirl!

    She calls sex workers prostituted women, she calls African-Americans Negro’s…. Never ever will I be her fan. But yeah, there’s something good in everyone. In her case that’s explaining butts in video games

    Volgens mij is dit de eerste keer dat ik het niet met je eens ben! 🙂 Ik heb een hekel aan Anita Sarkeesian sinds ze beweerde dat seksisme tegen mannen niet bestaat (kijk daarvoor naar https://twitter.com/femfreq/status/533445611543363585), en haar onderzoek naar videogames is echt niet zo goed. Bekijk de video die PaulV hierboven heeft neergezet, er zijn inmiddels tientallen videos op YT te vinden van gamers die kritiek geven op de ‘strategic butt coverings’ video van Sarkeesian.
