The Hateful Lies of Feminism

Posted on | February 22, 2016 | 143 Comments

 

Anita Sarkeesian (@FemFreq on Twitter) is a jargon-spewing pseudo-intellectual who made herself obnoxious by using feminist “gender theory” to critique videogames. This proved to be enormously lucrative for Ms. Sarkeesian, who became a heroine in the eyes of every left-wing ax-grinder who, like her, hates the idea of heterosexual white males enjoying themselves without being constantly lectured about what awful racist, sexist homophobes they are. Sarkeesian’s crooked hustle — “Pay me money to tell you how to abolish misogyny in videogames” — is a shakedown, a corrupt scam with which no honest person would wish to be associated. Sarkeesian’s modus operandi spawned imitators, who congealed into a money-grubbing feminist clown show that was exposed to the light of day in August 2014, #GamerGate.

Sarkeesian and her dimwit followers are incapable of original thought, and as soon as they began getting blowback from their shabby scam, they all began to shriek in unison, “Harassment!” This became the Official Media Narrative of what #GamerGate was about. Supposedly, every supporter of #GamerGate is a vile woman-hater, just harassing women qua women, because patriarchy or something. This claim is bullshit on stilts, but what else do the lazy hacks of the liberal media ever do except repeat whatever bullshit on stilts they are spoonfed by professional ideologues and Democrat Party propagandists?

The supposed “victims” of #GamerGate were a crew of no-talent mediocrities like Zoe Quinn (a tattoo-covered, mentally ill ex-stripper whose real name is Chelsea Van Valkenburg), perverted lunatics like Nicholas “Sarah” Nyberg (alleged to be a pedophile who likes little girls) and latter-day Mussolinis like Randi Harper. Regardless of whatever “harassment” has been directed at these people, it is difficult to ignore the fact that all of them are suffering from psychiatric disorders. Bad causes attract bad people, and are we surprised that this feminist “Girls in Games” racket attracted such a swarm of kooks and weirdos?

So, about two weeks ago, Twitter announced its Orwellian-sounding “Trust and Safety Council,” of which Anita Sarkeesian is a member. When my Twitter account was suspended Friday, some people (including Robby Soave of Reason magazine) put two and two together and concluded that perhaps Ms. Sarkeesian had something to do with this matter. Was this deduction valid? I don’t know. Twitter has cited nothing specific to justify its claim that I was “participating in targeted abuse,” and this opaque accusation was delivered as a verdict, so that I do not even have any way to know whom I was alleged to have “targeted.”

For dishonest women like Anita Sarkeesian, feminism is a sort of alchemy by which bullshit is transformed into cash, and she has collected hundreds of thousands of dollars for her “non-profit” activism. How do you suppose such a shrewd opportunist would react to the suggestion that she might have some role in the apparent crackdown on Twitter dissent? Ms. Sarkeesian (a) accused her critics of being paranoid conspiracy theorists, and (b) offered her own paranoid conspiracy theory:

Blog posts have been written, video rants have been filmed, and hundreds of tweets have been posted as this ludicrous conspiracy has spread. According to this conspiracy, any opinions I don’t agree with are being quietly silenced, while the people expressing them are being ominously “shadowbanned.” . . .
Of course there isn’t a shred of truth to this perception, but for the people spreading it, the truth is irrelevant. . . .
This conspiracy and others like it are themselves a manifestation of misogyny, borne out of a deep distrust and hatred of women. They’re designed to foster fear and serve as a warning to other women about what awaits them if they challenge the status quo. . . .

What Ms. Sarkeesian failed to do, of course, was to explain why she is so hated in particular (Answer: Because she lies) or whether the suspension of my account was prompted by a complaint from her or one of her allies.

You see that feminism’s hegemonic cultural authority is the real “status quo” in 2016, and what better “warning” — “designed to foster fear” — than to silence the social-media voices of those who “challenge” the lies told by Anita Sarkeesian. She has never dared to debate any of her critics, and why? Because liars are always cowards, and feminism is always a lecture, never a debate.

Feminist rhetoric is so obviously false, and its logic so circular, that it seems condescending even to point out its errors. What would Ms. Sarkeesian say, for example, if I merely inverted her own accusation, to assert that the ideology to which she owes her entire career is “borne out of a deep distrust and hatred of men”? What if I said that, to feminists like her, “the truth is irrelevant”? How could Ms. Sarkeesian disprove such accusations, if they were directed at her? In fact, this kind of finger-pointing Grand Inquisitor style of rhetoric — Accuse! Accuse! Accuse! — is the sum and essence of feminism. It is all about ginning up anti-male hatred by making tendentious claims about “objectification” or “slut-shaming” or “rape culture” or whatever, and no one is ever permitted to question the authority of the accusers. Why should anyone care what Anita Sarkeesian says about videogames? Where is the “social justice” here, and whither does Ms. Sarkeesian propose to lead us? What real harm is caused by the alleged “misogyny” in videogames of which she complains? What is she doing, other than hustling a dollar?

Anita Sarkeesian, “Zoe Quinn,” Randi Harper, “Sarah” Nyberg, “Brianna Wu” — a parade of selfish frauds, “shrewdly exploiting gender as a means of gaining lucrative advantages,” as I have said.  No honest person could admire these shabby swindlers, nor would any wise person trust them.

    As Limbaugh has said many years back, he’s popular because he said what people were thinking all along.

    It’s amusing how much SFWA members openly admit to how much their own organization colludes to discriminate against them because of their race and sex. I don’t know anything about the law but were there a case the public documentation (and results) of such collusion is voluminous.

    No, we haven’t seen the last of it. This is only the beginning.

    Quite on the point Stacy! One must read (and understand) the writings of those that make themselves an enemy by their hatred and delusional designs on ending your life.

    This how how the Anita Sarkeesian types of the world win: self-censorship. They just need to create a few examples, and all the weak-spined, ‘right-thinking’ folks will fall into line.

  • Quartermaster

    That may be. Since I don’t listen to his program anymore, I have no idea what he’s doing on his program. When I did have time to listen to the Radio, I listened to G. Gordon Liddy, but he finally hung up his spurs a couple years ago.

    I’ve survived as an unperson far longer Stacy!

    All true, but good to remember now and again that these 3rd wavers are just one aspect of the destroyer. Warmists, BLM, open borders fanatics, etc. The issue is never the issue.

    Dear Anita Sarkeesian,

    I am a female gamer. I have been for nearly two decades.
    You can take your theories and shove them right up your lily-white jackboot wearing arse.

    Gamers are not pansies. We play to win and take off as many heads with an SR-8 as we can.
    We curse. A lot.
    We use nasty words and are nasty to each other. It’s part of the game.
    We are vile and we like it that way. Yes, even ME.. a female.

    Go. Pound. Salt.

    Check out the collection of velvet-gloved totalitarians of the leftist “Twitter Trust & Safety Council”:

    https://blog.twitter.com/2016/announcing-the-twitter-trust-safety-council

    Investors who unfortunately own the free-fall declining Twitter stock should consider seeking the removal of the CEO and firing the Twitter Trust & Safety Council.

    Users of Twitter should block all Twitter sponsored ads after tweeting the companies as to their reason for the protest.

    At this rate Twitter is quickly on its way to being the next MySpace.

    I’ve heard Twitter likened to a sewer but that’s an unfair comparison. Sewers provide a valuable public health service by taking sewage away from our homes. Twitter brings the digital equivalent of sewage into our homes.

    I love REAL men, and traditional patriarchy and despise feminists and all the degeneracy it ushers in

    I’m curious what the woman looks like. I check on Google images. A glance tells all. Imagine, if you will and only for a moment, waking up and drawing on your eyebrows for the day. What kind of eyebrows will I have today? I realized, and this is a real realization, not a jape or a jibe, an honest to goodness realization, I could do that same thing, draw little eyebrows on my bell end and have the same result.

    The thing feminists miss is that real men despise the exact same type of men that feminists despise. Women that chase after those type of men are leaving the real men in their wake. I don’t understand why that deserves sympathy.

    I don’t know how I feel about that. I think there’s a degree where it’s inappropriate and I think it depends on what you mean by chase.

  • John Rew

    Once Anita became a member of twitters obscure safety council she lost all licence to claim she was challenging the status quo. This has got so many parallels with animal farm it belongs in a twilight zone episode. Little piggy Anita has transformed into a human before our eyes and she thinks no one has noticed.

    And the important thing to remember for those who confuse this crass feminism with liberalism is that Brin is a liberal. He is not afraid of liberals, he is afraid of his “masters.”

    You are guilty! Your kind is, by definition, guilty of harassment, misogyny, rapey rape and many other forms of “targeted abuse” too numerous to list here now. But I will list them later as I make them up.
