    I think Sargon makes a lot of interesting videos but he's borderline obsessed with Anita at this point. Like he wouldn't stop talking about her on Joe Rogan's podcast for almost half an hour..

    What are you talking about? He hasn't talked about her for months. In fact I can't even remember the last time he talked about her as for Joe Rogan this was withing the last few days right if so then it's just topical because of what happened.

    On October 14, 2014, Sarkeesian and Utah State University received terrorist threats pertaining to her planned lecture at the university the following day. The threats, one of which was issued by a person who claimed to be affiliated with Gamergate,[49] specifically cited the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada as inspiration.

    But was it ever proven that he was apart of Gamergate? Yes this is important otherwise you still have nothing.

    i heard sargon for the first time like two days ago on joe rogan's podcast and he did sound like a complete moron


    This. Never heard of him before. He seems like a pompous douche who thinks he's the s***. Don't think i'm supportive of Sarkeesian. Anita is a drama queen and spews garbage as well.
    The funny thing about all this is if Anita had not blew up at the guy this would have been a non-story. I mean for gods sake these guys are not BLM or that "anti-facism" group that for some reason like to physically attack people.

    Proof? I mean she did blow up on the guy the second she saw him. If she had continued with the panel and he in turn blew up at her it would have been a completly different story.

    Until he actually does something other than site there silently, he has done nothing wrong. And we wont ever know, cause Anita went off on him before he even got to do anything. As of right now, she is clearly in the wrong.

    So this is what happened?

    Dude constantly berates lady he disagrees with, finds out she's holding an event from what i know is about anti bullying, guy sets up event to fill up seats in the front row for no reason other than to stick it to her.

    Lady finds out and stands up for herself and people are mad at her? I'm not Anita's biggest fan and i disagree with her a lot but this is much different than the first reports of her attacking him unprovoked.

    The latter part has no evidence to support it other than he is a douchebag, which he is, and therefore that must have been his plan all along. Even though they guy didn't even heckle her or at that point in time do anything to her other than going to see her panel. 

    On a panel where she was apparently talking about bullying, she goes off on a guy and calls him garbage. Which goes against all the rules at Vidcon.

    Doesn't go against the rules if you happen to be a successful professional victim as has recently been proven.

    I can't stand Anita but Sargon was on the Joe Rogan Podcast a few days ago and holy f*** is that man pathetic. Couldn't even watch the whole thing because he was just a big f***ing baby.

    Yeah, Sargon is an intellectually dishonest scumbag. That's not to claim everything he says is wrong, but if you engage in a heated political discussion with an incentive being the sadistic pleasure of "trolling" or harassing others, you are part of the corrupted and rotting pillar that supports the vitriolic state of public discourse in our country right now. As illogical and inconsistent as Anita is (And her emotional maturity is about on par with Sargon), upsetting people does not seem to be an intended consequence of her actions and words. Sargon is at leaet partially driven by the pleasure of upsetting and offending people.

    Yup. Sargon is a bundle of barely concealed narcissism and self-masturbatory ranting. Just because he beats up on irrational radfems (It's easy to be "right" when your opponent is so self-defeating) does not mean he is an authority on these issues. 

    I don't want any of my posts in this topic to be construed as support for Anita, though. I think both Anita and Sargon display dangerous disregard for civility and reasoning in there statements. Saying Sargon acted like an antagonistic troll here (The most traditional meaning of trolling, as well--Figuratively trolling the waters of VidCon after baiting Anita for years and hoping for her to bite and say something emotional and stupid) is not to say Anita's response was appropriate (Though somewhat understandable). Neither of them have the intellect and integrity to lead this debate on the national stage, yet here we are. 

    tl;dr: Both are bad but for different reasons.

    Good grief this is stupid. Morons like Sargon want Anita to stick around. Otherwise he has to find other stuff to get outraged over.

    If you support s***ty 'trolling' like this you're just ensuring this garbage sticks around. Sarkeesian's stuff has barely even been relevant for the last year or so. She could have just had her panel in peace and nobody here would have cared. But nope.

      Unfortunately not true. Give sexists a safe space and they will conspire to destroy society, much like any other radical fringe group. Imagine if it was the KKK and a bunch of narcissistic black guys crashed the party.

      Except what they are actually doing is making a safe space for sexists. There are very few valid sexist arguments to be made in gaming, and none of those have ever come from Anita's crazed lunacy camp.

      Because these crazy f***ers will manage to poison the uninformed rumor mill with their rhetoric and thus gain some foothold for sexism.

      It was until a bunch of people took up three rows to troll. Which accomplished what exactly? Brought her back to the spotlight? Great job from Sargon there.

      No I'm not interested. But clearly he gets a lot of exposure from this and wants figures like Anita to stick around. It's a part of internet outrage culture. This isn't limited to Sarkeesian or video games.

      No I'm not interested. But clearly he gets a lot of exposure from this and wants figures like Anita to stick around. It's a part of internet outrage culture. This isn't limited to Sarkeesian or video games.

      What evidence do you have to support this?

      It was until a bunch of people took up three rows to troll.

      Again, people claim this but where's the proof?


      Dave Cullen lounges on what appears to be a bed in a hotel room, pointing a camera at himself. He looks tired and slightly pleased with himself. He is an ally of Benjamin's, a fellow YouTuber who makes a full-time living feeding the internet’s appetite for masculine fear and hurt. His Patreon makes around $3,000 a month. His YouTube page has more than 240,000 subscribers. 

      He was there, he says, at the VidCon Sarkeesian session. As he speaks, he claims that the first three rows were taken up by allies. (These allies have co-opted an internet term of derision to describe themselves: s***lords. They are generally identified by their hostility to progressives and to "social justice warriors.")

      “This is harassment, pure and simple.”

      He goes on to talk about how these allies coordinated among themselves at the event. "We carefully organized this so that on one side of the audience we would all make up the top three rows,” he says. “We would all be sitting there filming it," he adds, before naming several allies. "Anita spoke. And they were asking about why is it important to still have women talking about sexism or some victim bulls*** in video games." He recounts Sarkeesian's comments. 

      He repeatedly claims the group is there to "engage" with Sarkeesian, but later, he says something very different. 

      "We had a blast with this. It was such an adrenaline high to be there in the situation, to s***-post, in this trolling kind of way." He goes on to claim there was "no malice" in their actions and that it was “playful.”

      Because these crazy f***ers will manage to poison the uninformed rumor mill with their rhetoric and thus gain some foothold for sexism. Same reason you wouldn't want Trump doing exactly this with various alternative motives, or really any politician for that matter. Keep s*** above ground and tolerable for large portions of the population.


      I wouldn't want the President of the United States to hold a panel? Err no. Hell he holds damn rallies. That's fine. 

      Way to dodge my point. I know you got it. Obviously you have no counter. If you're the feminist the world needs then kick Anita off the stage and take up a more sane and balanced approach.

      When the attempt to derail gets to this point I either assume you are acting as obtuse as possible so you can try to claim your fragile ego is still intact, or you are actually too stupid to grasp the concept of the argument. Either way there is no point in taking this further because you either know you're wrong or you never will and should get off the topic either way.

      They took up the front three rows of her panel and were mockin. That's enough to be disruptive. In what other circumstance would your most vocal critics taking up the first three rows of a public appearance not be disruptive?

      On the front rows, Benjamin and his retinue rock back and forth, as if they are watching a comedy show. He yells back that he be allowed to debate with her.

      Well since nothing proves that they were there to actually do something, we'll never know. And as far as I'm aware, if you're on an anti-bullying panel, you don't engage in bullying behavior. Especially since, you know, they didn't do anything there.

        No. What I want is for panels like this to talk to their bubble and for other panels to talk to their bubbles in peace. People can have different opinions about things without intimidating and insulting others. YouTubers can have panels that interact with their fans and audience without others trying to crash it. That sounds great.

        The difference here is the underlying intent. For example who would want a KKK "panel" to be public except for people they don't agree with because f*** those guys.


        Comparing them to the KKK seems a bit silly. They're a hate group.

        Comparing it to a Sargon/Alt-right panel is more valid.

        Actually I think a much better comparison would be neonazis. No actions that are officially hate crimes, a clear political and racial (or in this case sexual) agenda, and polarizing narcissists at the top of the organization. Oh sure we can let them gain power and influence, but is that really in anyone's best interests? Much better to have a critical eye on these people imo.

        I haven't defended Anita at all in this topic but whatever floats your boat. 

        I just think she should be allowed to have her panel without this crap. It goes vice versa too. Protesting and disrupting the Milo Yiannopoulos talks accomplished f*** all outside of giving him more notoriety.

        More in the sense that aside from the actual gangs and s***, I haven't heard of any neonazi organization laying claim to having organized hate crimes like the KKK. I'm trying to meet you halfway here. If that doesn't work for you then just remove the part where the organization actually goes out and does hate crimes.

        I haven't watched a lot of Anita Sarkeesian's videos, but I think she has a valuable voice and perspective, and that many, if not most of her loudest critics are motivated by genuine hate and human ugliness.

        The funny thing about all this is if Anita had not blew up at the guy this would have been a non-story.

        Bulls***. That guy didn't organize his entourage to sit in the first three rows so they could sit there respectful and silent for the whole time, and you're an idiot if you thought otherwise.


        Until he actually does something other than site there silently,


        He made video after video trashing her, photo shopping pictures of her, calling her names, saying she's a cancer, etc. And then he staged a sit in so he and his buddies could take up the first 3 rows at the panel she was on, and film her.

        Oh wait, this is CE, where some of you think the internet isn't real life.

        EDIT: Never mind. People already covered this and they did it far better. So I'll repeat what I said earlier: they're both human garbage, f*** them both up their stupid asses.

        They really arent. There are plenty of example badass and powerful women throughout VG history. Most games these days that let you create or choose characters have viable female options. Most party-based games have strong female characters as well. 

        I'm really interested to see how you can really come to the conclusion they are poorly represented because I can rattle off scores of examples that indicate they really aren't.

        Uh... nothing was done to 'bully' her at the panel. He criticized her; not bullied. SHE was 'bullying' him by calling him a 'garbage human.' You can disagree with someone; but when you sink to insults, you have a problem.

        Japans views on women are anything but, progressive. Women want more then just a generic action figure-they want a woman that has womanly issues and isn't needlessly sexualized. But, gamers whine and complain whenever the industry listens to feedback and makes their games more inclusive.

        What womanly issues are you talking about here? Most VG characters are just your avatar going through the game. And male characters are sexualized and animated to ridiculous and unrealistic proportions all the time too. 

        You're talking about Japan's view of women. I wasn't talking about that. We're talking about the games. Was Yuna and her crew, and Terra and Lyndis in their games, just to throw out a few, not progressive enough for you?

        Okay I am really not taking an stance on the overall progressiveness on women in general when it comes to video games. 

        But really the all female leads in FFX-2 got their powers by changing what they wore, and Yuna was doing all of that to win a man back.

        It's like The Bride from Kill Bill. Why don't they like her? Feminists completely avoid any portrayal of a strong female if she's also attractive. They only want some hideous woman with an eating disorder to be a lead that way they can relate to them better.

        That's typically how RPGs work bro. New equipment makes you better.

        And male character going through the game to win a woman = sexist towards women

        Sarkeesian does not differentiate the two. She doesn't allow comments, rebuttals, debates or whatever. Criticism and inquiry is the same as a personal attack to her. But I believe it has to be that way or her house of cards will come falling down. She can not allow others to have their voices heard or people will start to see through her, instead of how it is now where so many of the people she takes advantage of seem to be falling over themselves to kowtow to her wants and apologize on her behalf.
