Ever since feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian committed the grave internet faux paus of launching a Kickstarter campaign to research how women are portrayed in video games, she's been the recipient of rape threats, death threats, and racist tirades by male gamer nerds who are apparently very enraged by the thought of a woman rootin' out misogyny in the high plains of Azeroth or whatever the fuck.
And instead of simmering down since Sarkeesian launched her May 17 Kickstarter (which skyrocketed past its $6,000 goal in less than 24 hours), the violence directed at her continues to escalate—most recently at the hands of a pathetic, whiny little man named Ben Spurr, who created a brutal video game starring Sarkeesian. Apparently, the sole point of the game is to beat the shit out of her.
What the fuck, you ask?
Spurr says that he created the domestic violence video game because he objects to Sarkeesian's Kickstarter campaign and when he tried to contact Sarkeesian with his objections, she ignored him. (The nerve of that bitch!) Here's Spurr's explanation of why Sarkeesian deserves to be taken down a notch, via She Was Disarming, which does a thorough job of succinctly slapping down each branch of his idiot logic:
Anita Sarkeesian has not only scammed thousands of people out of over $160,000, but also uses the excuse that she is a woman to get away with whatever she damn well pleases. Any form of constructive criticism, even from fellow women, is either ignored or labelled to be sexist against her.
She claims to want gender equality in video games, but in reality, she just wants to use the fact that she was born with a vagina to get free money and sympathy from everyone who crosses her path.
Shorter version: I am a gamer dude who disagrees with a thing this woman is doing (misogyny in video games doesn't exist!), so I am constructively criticizing her by role-playing beating the shit out of her. And if you have a problem with this, it's probably because you have a vagina that is constantly whining for sympathy.
