Sarkeesian (yes her again)

I've just looked at the 'Feminist Frequency' Face book page and threw up a little. Why is that you ask ? 
well ill show you 

how dare she !! for someone that hates violence she really sticks by her guns. the four ladies in the picture are river song (doctor who ) Buffy ( the vampire slayer ) Xena ( the warrior princess ) Katara ( from Avatar the Last Air bender) so whats her game ? is she saying these 4 strong female characters are feminist's ? its a bit sickening to say the lest. Yes there all ass kicking woman that lets face it you wouldn't want to meet or piss off but that's the thing, they are violent. surely she See's that its a bad move ?. You cant hate men for portraying violent characters and praise the woman that do. one rule for one and a different for another isn't right or fair!.

Sarkeesian is on a power trip now its clear  she may of had 'good intentions' at the start but shes slowly getting more and more power hungry we've already seen her take on the gaming world whats next? the whole Internet ? will she have men asking permission to take a dump ?!?! she is someone that scares the crap out of me. shes seen the amount of hipster followers shes now got and doesn't want to stop the amount of woman blindly following her and the men nipping at the women's heels trying to make nice thinking 'yea I buy in to this feminist bull crap I'll be able to bag my self a hipster follower' surely in Sarkeesian's eyes this is bad? if she hates men so much she See's this !?.

now some of the more regular readers of this blog will remember sometimes there is a Girl gamer that has written for us before , ( the concerned gamer ) and that's me all this is from a girls point of view and proudly so.

more tweets from Anita and the shirt that helped to land a miracle

It seems every day I think about what to blog about and every day now Anita sarkeesian hands me something on a plate her latest tweet :

"Gamer Gate is a monster the industry itself created by telling male gamers they’re the centre of the universe & catering to their every whim."

yea she said that. so gamer gate is something created by the industry its self ? I cant see it, call me stupid but I just cant see how the gaming industry created gamer gate considering gamer gate is  by their own definition:

A group against the corruption in the gaming industry, from developers to journalists.  

how the hell is this a group of male gamers being told they are at the centre of the universe? Ive read the posts by Gamer gate Ive listened to the live streams on you tube Ive looked though the tweeter pages and everyone linked to gamer gate, Ive googled it countless number of times, but yet I still cant see anything that relates to man power ! 

as for women in gamer gate well you've got queeny a you tuber that holds regular hang outs for the girls of gamer gate and of course not forgetting #notyourshield were gamers from all walks of life join in on the discussion 

 I'm really getting the impression  that Anita  is a massive, massive troll. either that or : 

I wonder whats next for  Anita sarkeesian ? perhaps she wont be happy until everyone is Asexual  and all looking like goobacks from south park. 

now time to tackle that shirt 

firstly I want to say its a damn shirt  GET OVER IT the man lands a probe on a moving comet possibly the greatest accomplishment of the 21st century and he gets it in the neck for wearing a shirt   with 'half dress girls'

 its sad to think that British scientist Dr Matt Taylor will be remembered not for a great achievement for man kind but wearing a  shirt that femnazis are pissed about. so the shirts a little unorthodox on this I have a question , who of us don't have a item of clothing that's a little different from the norm ? personally I have a ghost busters t shirt I ware to work! does anyone complain about it ? No ( I work in a office ) . and lets not forget the grandfather of science  Albert Einstein long hair and seen as quite unorthodox  But he gave birth the the theory of relativity so I say to the woman of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). give the guy a break hes not the first scientist to be a little different to push the boat out and I dare say he won't be the last 

So ill end on that note don't forget to tell me what you think below !

The Feminist Frequency at it again!

So shes done it again stating that There's no such thing as sexism against men. that's because sexism is prejudice + power .men are the dominant gender with power in society:

seriously Anita I mean really ? men face sexism all the time ! if you don't open your eyes and take a look around soon your going to lose what little grip you have on reality. 

I  think shes forgetting one of the most powerful women in our time lady Margaret thatcher a strong woman that ran the UK for about 10 years. many young girls look up to her and respect her as do many others and why ? because she was a strong woman that got the job done. you could love her or hate her but cant forget how she got it done. 

now to break down her latest tweet first part : Theres no such thing as sexism against men 
well there is ,
Social/Legal discrimination 
1) Harsher punishments for the same crime.
2) Unfair family courts - not getting custody for the child.
3) Male victims of DV not taken seriously.
4) Male victims of rape not taken seriously.
5) No special laws like VAWA to protect men, even though men are the majority of victims of violent crime.
6) For the same crime, irrespective of the gender of the offender - perpetrator gets more punishment if the victim is female rather than male. This shows the life of men is valued less than women.
7) Men can be conscripted into the army anytime. They cannot even vote without enrolling for the draft.
8) Violence against men by women is socially acceptable, celebrated in the media. Reverse is not true.
9) No/Very few shelters for male victims of DV.
10) No reservations for men in jobs, colleges, etc.. (Affirmative action for women)
11) Men stereotyped by society as being violent, abusers, etc.
12) Young men have to pay higher car/road insurance.
13) Young men in Singapore have to compulsorily serve 2 years in the army on turning 18.
14) Male infant circumcision/genital mutilation is legal and performed widely and even completely socially accepted.
15) Males enrolled in are often given tougher, more dangerous tasks to perform than women in the same post (in a job)
16) Males are expected to carry heavy things for women, give up their seats for women, shovel snow, mow gardens and do any other job involving back-breaking manual labour, that women do not wish to perform.
17) Males are expected to not show emotion and remain stoic, under any circumstance.
18) Males who complain about being objectified are shamed as being “mentally fragile” or their sexuality is questioned.
19) In the army, or any other position men have to meet much higher physical standards than women (disproportionately higher number of push ups, pull ups, etc..)
20) Many countries do not even recognise female on male rape. It can maximally only amount to “sexual assault”
21) Male children are often given harsher punishments by teachers for the same level of mischief as girls.
22) Men are expected to ask women out, pay for dates, decide on the venue – basically it’s the man’s job to impress the woman, and not vice versa.
23) Men have no reproductive choices. The only choice men have is to use a condom (which can fail up to 3-5% of the times) or not have intercourse. Whereas women in addition to a host of contraceptives, also have the choice of abortion.
24) Men’s lives are given less value in any situation. In any emergency, always women are rescued first.
25) When a man slaps a woman, he is an abuser and a monster, When a woman slaps a man, “he must have done something to annoy her”
26) Victim blaming is acceptable ONLY when men are the victims and women the perpetrator.
27) When a man breaks up with a woman, he is called a “jerk”. When a woman dumps a man, “he must have failed her somehow”
28) Males do not have the privilege of showing affection to each other in public, people start questioning their sexuality. This doesn’t apply to women. 

how about the Fathers4justice campaign  ?  those poor fathers are an example of how fathers are treated differently in the courts surely this could be seen as sexism? would you like more examples? 

again Anita take your head out of your but hole and take a long look at your self. 

 and now for the second part of her tweet : that's because sexism is prejudice + power .men are the dominant gender with power in society 

again I remind you of lady Margaret thatcher and to take a look at other women of power, Michelle Obama , Angela Merkel , Beyonce Knowles and not forgetting  the first female video game designer Carol Shaw.

for those not sure on  who she is : breaking the ice for other women in the video game industry. Shaw began as an Atari employee, designing and programing 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe (1979) for the Atari 2600.[76] Shaw later joined Activision where she designed Happy Trails for the Intellivision and River Raid for the Atari 800 and Atari 5200 for which she is most widely known. Additionally, she designed an unreleased Polo game in 1978 and worked on the game Super Breakout.[77] Now retired, Shaw lives in California with her husband, Ralph Merkle.[78]
Shaw is credited on the following games:

  • 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe (1979), Atari, Inc.
  • Video Checkers (1980), Atari, Inc.
  • River Raid (1982), Activision, Inc.
  • Happy Trails (1983), Activision, Inc.
  • River Raid II (1988), Activision Publishing, Inc.
  • Intellivision Rocks (2001), Intellivision Productions Inc.
  • Polo (2002)
  • Activision Anthology (2002), Activision Publishing, Inc.
So Anita I ask this , have you even done any research ? to find this information it took me around 30 Min's ( I stopped half way for a cuppa)

Ill end on this note , there is sexism towards men they are portrayed as strong bread winning champions unable o doing anything else. I really hope Anita will some day see this. 

and as for her view on women in general : both me and Res and the concerned gamer get the impression that she hates women, and thinks shes saving a generation. well your not Anita far from it. thinking she is talking for all woman, well again your not Anita  far from it. Women are not thick they can make their own minds up. the only sexism we see here is coming from you against men.

Feminist Frequency a concerned Gamers piont of view

So the concerned gamers back and wanted to say a few words on feminist frequency

Hi all ,

          first Id like to thank Res and z0mbi3 for letting me come back and cast my stone in the feminist frequency pound. After watching Anita Sarkeesian's video  on the Lego Friends for girls I see she not only has issues with computer games and gamers but also toys. This makes me angry as most girls I know when they were younger enjoyed playing with toys for boys to! they didn't care it was anything from footballs to K'nex ,

 they also enjoyed playing with girl stuff to barbies toy pony's and hair brush make up sets. Yet after taking to a few guys I know they would play with cabbage patch dolls, prams did they care? no they were just happy to play with others their own age.

now you could say but its only over the past few years that the separation between girls and boys have happened a key sign of this is the kinder surprise egg blue for boys pink for girls.

my point on this is so what? girls and boys should have the option to  play with what ever they like personally I believe the older toys were best not knowing what you'll get when you crack open the egg biting in to that sweet chocolate made it all the more better , but I'm not going to make girls that want to be girly change. Just like it would be wrong to say boys need to be covered in muscles and carry a axe on fire,  its down to the person how they act and how they are. as far as I'm aware there are still kinder eggs you can get that don't show if there  for girls or boys so why complain? the amount of complaining that's happened that girls and woman are being segregated in to being the weaker sex to be honest I see as stupid. Its down to choice not making a woman worth less than a man

If a child chooses to play with a doll does that child have to be a girl ? No
If a child chooses to play with Lego does that child have to be a boy ? No

so now ill point massive holes in Anita sarkeesian's view , she states that company's like Lego are separating the genders making toys only for girls etc... blah blah well Anita if you Google Lego mini figures girl  you'll find things like ,


and , 

also , 

not really the helpless girl figure Anita states is it ? really Anita do your home work before you go spouting of your feminist crap. If you really feel that girls have no choice but to play with pink toys and fluffy bunny rabbits then you need to open your eyes and take a good look around. Girls have been playing with toys for boys and boys playing with girl toys for years.

So Ill leave it there , once again massive thanks to Res and z0mbi3 for letting me cast my thoughts on this chances are ill be popping in and out of their blog hope you enjoyed!
