I am so sick and tired of listening to American Feminists using the same lame and LONG debunked arguments. It is like listening to the same type of equally idiotic creationist apologetics and it doesn't matter if you prove ALL their arguments wrong hundreds of times.they will just stick to it.. Even more, they call all criticism to be harassment.
Let me give you an example or maybe even THE example, the rest of this blog is directed at her:
She is the founder of Feminist Frequency, a website that hosts videos and commentary analyzing portrayals of women in popular culture. She has received particular attention for her video series Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, which examines tropes in the depiction of female video game characters.
You can find the rest about her on WIKIPEDIA
What Anita Sarkeesian really is, she looks like the mold used on many, many more of these "Third Wave Feminists" as they like to call themselves. One should think that they have some message to present, but if you consider their demands, which, in the previous century, have been granted in all modern western countries including the US in several laws law in the previous century, Feminists are obsolete. Feminism has already won in the modern western world!
Women already are equal to men BY LAW ANITA!!
I always considered myself as a social equalist meaning same rights to everyone, no matter what race, color, gender, sexual preference, race, religion.. and people have have this equality.. Women even have MORE rights in lots of cases but this does not bother me at all, because there are good reasons for that.
What bothers me about you Anita, you keep bringing up the same old chewed out stuff, and the "new" stuff ? beside your criticism on video games there isn't any, it is just recycled crap from the last wave of feminism and let me give you some examples:
Argument #1 The wage gap, at average women earn like 25% less than men.
This is the argument as you use it Anita, sometime you even dare to put in: for the same kind of work, which simply is a lie and can be proven wrong in ONE sentence:
"If women would earn less than men, companies would only hire women because women would be cheaper!"Jesus Christ, the wage gap is a bullshit argument, the reason women earn at average 25% less than man is because less women chose to go for the high paying jobs, they aren't less intelligent, they aren't less qualified to study, they just make different choices..
Argument #2 The Patriarchy, the male dominated system that suppresses women.
Feminists yet have to bring evidence for a patriarchy in the modern western world.
There is nothing that would prevent a women to become head of state!
Angela Merkel. Head of state and the most powerful person in Germany and probably the most influential woman in western Europe.
Margaret Thatcher. Remember her ? Prime minister of the UK for 11 years, she wasn't called the Iron Lady for no reason
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. President of Argentine for 8 years and got almost the same well known nickname as a famous American President of the 60' of previous century CFK
Indira Gandhi. She was the prime minister of India TWICE between 1966 and 1984 So stop giving me that patriarchal crap that women are held back
Argument #3 We live in a rape culture
This is ridiculous beyond reason, do you know what a rape culture is Anita? maybe you should take a good look at backward, or even "modern" Islamic countries. If you get raped there, the chance that the rapists will be punished is astronomically small unless you have three male witnesses, these witnesses are usually the others who take turns at you.. If you report this with the police, without Three male witnesses in your favor, the chance is very real that you will be the one who will be punished ..
THAT is what I call a rape culture, but does your activism go against that ? of course not, at least I haven't seen you doing that yet.
Anita didn't you know that in our modern western world, rape is about the worst crime a man can commit, even worse than murder? Do you realize that the life expectancy of a rapist in the general population of prison is not very promising if even murderers are disgusted by rapists?
The whole society is disgusted by rape and rapists , and rapists ARE being punished in our part of the world Anita..
Argument #4 We have a society that hates women.
NO Anita, we live in a society where the majority of people hates bullshitters like third wave feminist activists. Misogyny ? that is such a joke, do you know why MEN hate Feminists?
BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING FEMININE ABOUT FEMINIST ACTIVISTS!
You are just a bunch of whiny ass, bullshitting, attention whores who are incapable of making friends in a normal way so you blame it on anyone but yourself..
Do you know what I would do if I saw you or any other loudmouth feminist drowning in a river ? .. Do you ?
I am 61 years old but I would jump in without hesitation and try to save your life, even if it could cost me my own..
Do you know why Anita Sarkeesian? Because society, does not hate women, men do not hate women, this misogyny you are so full of, is a delusion..
Like most men in our modern world, I am a social being, and being such, your life matters to me , I don't hate you, but don't EVER expect me to agree with your bullshit lies.
