valid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: Her unclear reasoning behind still asking for money for her videos, her absolutely glacial rate of video making, the fact that she analyzes games which she knows little about, or how her views on Feminism do not represent all schools of feminist thought
invalid criticisms of Anita Sarkeesian: She hates men, she wants all games to pander to women, she wants to take our games away!!!!
I don’t condone ANY of the threats she’s getting in any way, shape or form. But I would like to know:
a. Why the fuck she needed all that money and what she did with it, and
b. Is she actually a gamer, or is she just analyzing and criticizing a medium she’s doesn’t know a whole lot about and is not really an active participant in?
Because, like, I’m all for criticizing games. That’s fair play. But I guess I have a problem with someone who is only playing them to criticize them, and not because they’re a gamer at heart. This has nothing to do with her being a woman, rather to do with does she actually play video games.
