If you disagree with Anita sarkeesian, then you’re a bully. If you criticize her, then you’re a bully. If you don’t donate money to her, then you’re also harasser. These are all things we have learnt from the media in the past few years. This year, however, the media decided to add one more type of harassment to the list – Being bullied by Anita Sarkeesian. At this year’s VidCon, Anita decided to single out one person in the audience to direct her diatribe at. Keep in mind that Sargon Of Akkad, the target of her rant, had yet to utter a single word at her. He was simply seated in the audience while Anita and a couple other panelists discussed online harassment.
She decided to go off script during the panel discussion, pointing out Sargon in the audience, referring to him as a “garbage human” for criticizing her work on YouTube. And then after the event, she went on to play the victim – with the help of the media of course.
Via The Daily Caller:
Feminist media critic Anita Sarkeesian is facing a barrage of criticism since her unprovoked outburst at popular YouTuber Carl “Sargon of Akkad” Benjamin at Vidcon 2017 last week.
The feminist berated Benjamin before an audience, calling him a “garbage human” for criticizing her work on YouTube. Since then, Sarkeesian has been claiming victimhood — describing Benjamin’s presence at her panel as an act of intimidation in a blog post, and in an interview on Polygon where she called for the creation of a blacklist for those who “harass” her.
Despite Sarkeesian’s claims, game developers are now accusing her of promoting harassment. One prominent creator spoke out against her for publishing a piece of fiction about murdering him. The feminist critic often rails against video game players, claiming they direct abuse and misogynist harassment at women in the gaming industry.
In typical fashion, VidCon officials sided with Anita sarkeesian. Because women are always the victims, even when they are the ones bullying others.
The one good thing to come out of this is that even progressives are starting to see Anita for what she is:
If any good has come from this, Sarkeesian’s bullying is being brought up into the light of day. Of course, this is nothing new. Feminists like Sarkeesian often play the victim while thinking nothing of their own behavior. This is justified in their mind sunder the argument that it’s fine to “punch up.”
In other words, so long as the victims are men — particularly white men — then anything is excusable. It’s fitting that even progressives in the video game industry, the industry where Sarkeesian has focused much of her work, are fighting back.
