justified is hypocrisy is still hypocrisy in the eyes of someone who doesn't see the injustice in the first place. i get why they want these events but they're damaging their message and no matter how much you say "its different when i do it" isn't going to change anybodies opinion when it comes time to vote.

Does not justify harassing people, but you are correct. The social history of the last thirty years contains a great deal of 'I want to be equal...until I want to be special.' Which is simply hypocrisy.

Hosre****. The issue is people climbed on the backs of other people to reach a previously unreachable place, and now those same people expect everyone to be able to reach that spot on their own.

The hypocrisy of some people never ceases to amaze me.

With that said, trolling this event is counter-intuitive, since the media will use it to demonize "male gamers" further.

so much of this s*** could be avoided with careful wording. "female centric" would work much better and all you would really need to do is throw out any of the guys being creeps and generally acting disruptive. its your event you can set and enforce the rules.

Yes. MrMikeMa. Try having a male only gaming event. It won't work out well. @MrMikeMa

While not every male and female does not behave the same, a male-only gaming event would be trolled, and attacked by a bunch of males and females yelling, "VIRGIN!" insults. Other homophobic slurs.


MrMikrMa, ever got called a VIRGIN? It is a massive insult. In the 8th grade, girls,made big strong guys cry by calling them virgins. It costed boys a good $20... paying off girl classmates, just so they would no longer be virgin

You may not agree with her opinions, but pretty sure she doesn't deserve endless dick pics, cum tribute pics, rape and death threats, stalking, hacking, verbal and written harassment...

You guys pretend s*** is "equal" but when does that happen to a guy who simply voices their opinions on a game?

Again, nobody is stopping you from having one except for yourself. Don't assume how people would react, and quite frankly, you shouldn't care what they think anyways.

I went to a Catholic middle school and was picked on for both my weight and being assumed a "virgin" because no girl would want a fatty like me.

I went to an all boys high school and the co-ed schools would chant : "Savio High.....Savio low, that's where all the (gay slur)s go" during the games. 

But, we didn't have social media back then to whine about it.

Don't pretend that Anita is the only one abused.

She gets attacked because she is female. Big difference.

Anita does not just post "opinions," she downright INSULTED her critics as "privileged males."


Anita deliberately continues an unrelenting attack against the gaming community over and over again. Anita is like the kind of guy people HOPE gets beaten up, so the video goes to worldstarhiphop.com. I do not feel sorry for Anita.

@secondhand1

Millions of female gamers HATE Anita Sarkeesian. Even some of the ones here.

On Twitch, successful female gamers get donations by simply SAYING they hate Anita.

Anita had more female support earlier, until it became clear she is simply ANTAGONIZING gamers, and creating more conflict than solution.

@MrMikeMa

I am not you. I remember in Junior High a girl called the most popular guy (class President) a virgin. Know why it hurt? She was pregnant. 

She wasn't a virgin if she would give birth before 8th grade graduation. Luckily, she dropped out or left.


That girl was popular. No one can call her a virgin, when evidence of her pregnancy was in your face.

But in the 8th grade, $20 is a lot of money, to pay off female students for sex, just so you wouldn't be a virgin anymore. In High School, girls charge $50 just for 3 minutes.
