You… you can’t be serious. This horse has been beaten so fucking long I don’t even think it any longer qualifies as dead anymore. It’s just fuckers going around smacking bottles of Elmers glue and bowls of kibble and bits with sticks. Do I really feel like dusting off the ol’ beaten stick to do this shit again?
Luckily for you I hate her that fucking much.
1- Raised over 20 fucking times as much money as she asked for with her kickstarter. Gave nothing back. To make videos about video games, something fucking thousands upon thousands of people do for free. Getting 160,000 dollars when she only asked for 6,000. And continues to receive more donations. And made what, like 5 vids in two years? When those who do it for free do more thorough research, have better quality videos, and make a shit ton more vids.
2- Completely lied about being a fan of video games to get people to back her. In fact she is so fucking ignorant towards the medium she doesn’t know any genres exist outside of shooters. Not to mention no fucking experience in the field whatsoever.
3- Was found to not even purchase some of the games she was criticizing. (the very thing she was asking money for.) Posting pics of just her with games, often times in the fucking store. Where you could just pick one up, snap a pic and put it back. As opposed to, oh I dunno, Some fucking receipts.
4- Stole artwork and footage from other people. X
5- Has been found to make threats to herself at the same time as asking for more donations (despite getting more than 20 fucking times as much as she originally said would be necessary, and not even using the money for what she claimed to be.)
6- Disables all comments, and ratings, and fucking everything else on her videos. She makes a career out of criticism, but forbids people to do the same to her.
7- Cherry picks like its her fucking job. Which since idiots keep giving her free money to do it, I guess it literally is her job. Like with her review of Hitman, where she claimed the game was misogynistic because it allowed the player to kill women and drag their corpses around. When you can do the same fucking thing to every male character in there as well, plus strip the clothes from the male and only the male characters. And criticizing a game for using a “damsel in distress trope”, when the final boss was fucking defeated by the female character herself. Or her criticism of fallout because the game gives you a popup for killing a woman when you have high karma. Or their depiction of female sex workers. When the game does literally the exact same fucking thing for males in both regards. She tried to claim a mission in watch dogs about taking down a fucking sex trafficking ring somehow supports them. She has claimed games that penalize you for attacking random women are somehow encouraging players to do so.
So what did she do? She tricked people into giving her a shit ton of money, to partake in a hobby she doesn’t even like by her own admission, doesn’t even play half the shit she’s criticizing, cut corners in production including fucking theft, all to tell the people who do like this hobby that they’re bigots, while refusing to address criticism herself, ignores 95% of whats in a game so she can take out of context examples and paint it as misogyny, and then points to people giving her shit for all that she’s down to harm the gaming community and scam people out of money as justification. And you fucking morons keep supporting her.
She’s a fucking scam artist, playing off people insecurities towards gamings influence on immoral behavior. Which has been disproved time and time again. And just some common fucking sense would tell you that if this shit were true, with the number of people playing AAA games there would be a obvious increase in certain actions every time a game was released. Which is fucking hilarious since many of these people fucking loathedthe republican party when they tried to claim video games encourage violence and terrorism. But suddenly a feminist says the same fucking load of bullshit, and these idiots are fucking dislocating their jaws so they can swallow it faster.
While i agree anita does more harm than good (specifically to females wanting to get in to the industry) i think your whole post’s tone isn’t going to make anyone sympathetic to your cause.
I reblogged this to ask about the “caught faking death threats” thing. I don’t really get how that’s evidence of her faking them
I’m not looking for sympathy. Anyone who still supports Anita is going to continue to support her regardless of what I say. The facts are out, they’ve already made their decision, I’m just getting my kicks in before this whole shit show goes up in flames.
And did you even fucking read it?
There is no plausible way those were genuine.
