Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

^ bolded for emphasis

FYI, I did the math - that’s about 1 in every 6 men.

It acknowledges ‘not all men’ while proving the 1 in 6 factoid.

- Number 1

Y’know, I remember somebody debunking this post once before. I thought I’d saved it, but apparently not.

Anyone wanna help me out?

Umm…a bunch of the references were done with studies from biased people

Mary Koss (just one of them) is cited like 6 times in this study. NO study with her involved should really be taken seriously. She has been proven wrong time and time again. 

She is known for manipulating results to make them worse than they appear, using unreliable methods to acquire data, and outright lie in her studies. 

In fact, it was her that was mainly responsible for the definition of rape to change to exclude male rape victims and female perpetrators.

Again, her studies are biased and flawed. 

You know how sometimes you see propaganda and you just wanna punch something? JFC this is awful.

*rape culture teaches men they are not rapists*

Is that why most feminists define rape as forced penetration of a woman by a man, and many legal systems does not recognise male victims of rape, especially of rape of men by women? 







Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

Personally I think she’s a scam artist using activist politics as a cover. Like 99% of academic theorists. Though most of those have the decency to actually attempt research rather than take gameplay footage, and art from others.

And let’s not even get into the fact that her videos are shorter than quite a few MLP analysts, yet she takes longer than Drowning in Horseshoes to make a video, using culled footage.

And then there’s the straight up dishonesty when it comes to games, such as her little thing about no female charactered games this Gen, when Hyrule Warriors, a game that I think last count had something like 2-1 female to male characters) is due out and was announced.

So basically, I don’t wish her death, I do however wish her even more failure until she has to enter the workforce when support runs dry and she can’t find another way to scam people.

Yeah I don’t wanna gloss over that her work isn’t uh… great, and she’s stolen creative work form a lot of people, but still. I don’t think the guys threatening to kill her family have even watched her videos long enough to debate any of her claims. This kind of violent escalation over a few feminism 99 videos is nuts- especially since she’s just talking about video games.

Plus, I take what she says with a grain of salt. She’s a liketivist type so it could be one unstable person, or many people, or even just a phantom for more followers.

1.  Who tells her twitter she’s calling the police BEFORE she calls the police?  Somebody who isn’t really calling the police.

2.  This is coming too quickly after Zoe Quinn.  The skeptic in me flat out says Anita saw how much money Quinn was getting from her supporters and saw dollar signs and is trying to cash in.

Reblogged from My Personal Blog







When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”

and boom goes the dynamite


This is so much bullshit that I might need a shovel to get through it all.

If culture wasn’t designed to be shared (because, you know, people just happen to share their experiences and this can, say, change the way some people think about different aspects) then a lot of language wouldn’t exist, especially anything fallen from Greek, Latin, Gaelic. English as a language would not exist. At all.

French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and all the other Romance languages would not exist. 

Anyone going to school right now, better stop that shit if you’re not Greek because the modern idea of Academia started in Greece.

If you’re not Italian, you can’t wear jeans since denim started in Italy.

Can’t enjoy Shakespeare anything if you’re not British.

Vodka? Not if you’re not Russian.

Cars and airplanes? American.

Culture fucking changes when people interact at all. Unfortunately, the most advancements happen in the world when there’s a lot of interaction happening. Which is why, historically speaking, the richest cities tend to be ones on heavily traveled areas, such as sea ports or major trading roads (the Silk Road) because there’s a very heavy flow of different peoples and this starts growth and development. 

However, there should also be a certain level of respect and pride in ones historical culture. As in, what is this sudden anger at someone being interested and invested in culture? I’m talking rude Halloween costumes, I’m talking someone who wants to learn Indian belly dance or to speak Japanese. Sharing leads to understanding and respect. 

Sadly enough, the fucking idea of ‘stealing culture’ has shifted away from things that are literally sacred to someone (almost always white) eating food. Wearing clothes. Watching television. And it’s not these ‘white people’ cheapening these cultures. It’s the people who start online hate campaigns against others because of it. 

They’re literally saying ‘my culture is so weak and so vulnerable that a white girl eating ramen is offensive.’








Hey, cis people

Trans people don’t hate you for being cis

Shut the fuck up by saying “aw boohoo, trans people hate me because I’m comfortable with my assigned gender wah wah”

We don’t hate you for being cis, we hate you for being oppressive transphobic asshats

i don’t hate you for being trans i hate you for being otherkin

I hate you for being transphobic.

sorry that you think “a gender based on the concept of cuteness and being cute” is real

you’re cis

Hey idislikeispeople

Nobody hates you because you are “trans” 

People dislike you because you are a petulant brat who turns being trans into a fashion accessory and collects made up pronouns like they are hot topic pins, actively tries to dislodge people with dysphoria from their own moment so you can feel special by calling them scum, does everything to widen the gap between is and trans people so you can carry on maintaining a sense of persecuted uniqueness, and also for generally being an obnoxious, selfish, spoilt little shit who is a hypocrite every time you open your mouth 



Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

Reblogged from boy with a broken halo








Remember when I talked about feminists who look for reasons to be offended? This is exactly what I was talking about.

It’s one thing to enjoy playing video games and happen by a scene which is genuinely fucked up (I mean chances are it was intended to be fucked up; it’s like people complaining about the violence and drug use in Far Cry games), but it’s entirely another thing to grind through something you don’t even enjoy for a demographic you evidently dislike playing content that you barely understand, removing context and information, just so you can have a reason to take offence. It’s pathetic.

Let me get this straight. she plays a game for 8 hours, looking to be offended, and is mad when she can’t find something.

Yep, you got it on point.

The problem I have with this post is that Anita is doing research when she does this. “capture a particular scene” refers to her work in Femfreq about criticizing certain tropes and whatnot.

She played a game that she didn’t enjoy for the sake of that show and for that research. I’d prefer her work to be well-researched than otherwise.

Also, unpleasant in this context can totally refer to a game that she finds issue with from a writing standpoint, or issue with from a gameplay standpoint. Without further clarification we don’t even know.

I still haven’t even gotten around to watching Femfreq, I don’t even know if I’ll agree with it. More than likely as with most videos that offer this opinion shenanigans I’ll agree and disagree throughout. But this post is criticizing her in a really dumb way considering what she does. Research, guys, I mean really. “Looking for things to be offended about” My gods.

I feel as though you and another user who has responded similarly do not fully understand how either Anita Sarkeesian or Feminist Frequency operates. The purpose of her web series is, as you said, to point out tropes in video games and possible misogynistic behaviour which (in their eyes) is either encouraged or at the very least not discouraged. The problem, though, is Anita does exactly what I described; she looks for reasons to be offended in video games, often, and has at times even ignored in-game prompts to prove her (moot) point.

A prime example that a couple other people brought up early on is her play-through of Hitman Absolution, which is summarized here. In it, she claims that players are encouraged to perform “misogynistic behaviour”, and that even though it isn’t mandatory, it’s “implicitly encouraged”.

What she fails to mention is that…fuck it, I’ll let the analysis do the talking:

Anita then shows a clip of Hitman Absolution, depicting the player character knocking out and dragging the bodies of female strippers around the floor.

While this is happening, the player score counter in the top corner of the screen is actually GOING DOWN.
Hitman Absolution doesn’t “implicitly encourage” killing or knocking out civilians, female or otherwise. It actuallydiscouragesthat kind of behavior, by activelypenalizingthe player for it.

So we end up with a case of Anita using video footage that proves wrong the very point she’s making at the time.

Furthermore, only an idiot player is going to interfere with the strippers anyway, as they’re incredibly easy to sneak past, and they only hurt your score if you try interacting with them in any way.

Not only this, but she suggests that the player “cannot help” but perform obscene acts on female NPCs.

Anita Sarkeesian:
The player cannot help but treat these female bodies as things to be acted upon,because they were designed, constructed and placed in the environment for that singular purpose. Players are meant to derive a perverse pleasure from desecrating the bodies of unsuspecting virtual female characters.

Once again using footage from Hitman Absolution.


What she DOESN’T show is thatyou can kill / knock out male characters, strip them of all their clothes, and leave them lying around in their underwear and/or dumped in a dumpster. Which is something you CANNOT do to female characters (take all their clothes, I mean), and is arguablyworsethan what you CAN do to female characters (kill them / knock them out, drag them around, — and not much else).

She’s done this with a number (and I say a number because she hasn’t even followed through with the rest of the videos she has promised) of her other femfreq videos; this isn’t an isolated incident in the slightest.

So when I and others interpret what she’s said as looking for reasons to be offended it’s based on knowing these things prior to coming to that conclusion; that is, knowing that she has at times intentionally ignored in-game prompts and completely disregarded context just so she would have a reason to be offended by some bullshit “trope” in a video game. It’s happened before, and so it’s no surprise that it could also be the case here.


It’s cherry picking. It’s the fact she is deliberately playing through a game, ignoring 8 hours of context or gameplay mechanics to pull one scene she knows exists (see: her public appeals for her fans to tell her about scenes or abilities in games she hasn’t yet played that support her argument prior to doing “research”) to get a brief clip outside of said context to prove a point.

Here’s a terrible half-assed analogy: Say I were to do a video series on problematic tropes women make in public to address and made an open call for people to give me examples that support the argument of the episode, such as saying “I need examples of women being gold diggers for my gold digger episode.” My inbox gets flooded by misogynistic manlets sending me links to shitty bait videos like this “Gold Digger Car Prank" and i proceed to make a video arguing that women are gold diggers with citations to examples like these. You can’t dispute these cherry picked videos exist and show women being lead into doing "problematic" or upsetting things - but the whole argument is loaded with exceptions to the rule, showing questionable examples that are constructed to produce positive results, otherwise rigged to prove a pre-established conclusion that disregards the fact that I’m using crude statistical outliers to argue the nature of a whole that simply is deceptive or often not true. Chances are, that gold digger videos required multiple takes and probably left out examples where the creators failed to lure subjects into their prank or where girls simply told them to fuck off with their shiny car and grow up. As a result, the manlets who watch my videos get erect on their confirmation bias and believe all women are gold diggers. Mission accomplished.

This is why I feel these videos are often concerning. You can tell me my comparison to a dumb “gold digger” series is false equivalence, but it’s the act of casting a net to find nothing but examples to support the argument, no matter how insignificant they are in incidence, to portray the whole of an industry as plagued by it that irritates me. It’s the act of disregarding research that potentially contradicts my argument to mislead and creating hysteria.

But that’s all I’ll have to say on that in regards to critical analysis. To it’s credit, it HAS made developers smarten up and be a bit more self aware of their game plot design, but I still get flank flustered at how the videos are constructed and how otherwise potholed and basic they are argued.


Anita Sarkeesian is the latest embodiment of all those bored, middle-class, clueless adults who cried “WOLF” in the 80s and 90s over heavy metal and rap music. They grifted people out of their money via “fundraising,” started action committees, brought artists to court, and conducted “research” that pointed out the dangers of songs like Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It.

Anita’s video game witch hunt is just another wave of PMRC-style bullshit, but of a different ideological flavor.

The game Hitman is about as dangerous to women as the song “Fuck the Police” was dangerous to cops. In the wake of this Mike Brown situation, the original outcry over that track leading to the senseless murder of police officers seems terribly ironic.

Remember, feminists love you! (As long as you blindly agree with everything they say)

Don’t be that type of feminist





Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.

They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.

And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.

To the point where many among the sort of person depicted in this episode point out that Lauren Faust later regretted writing the episode. What they conveniently leave out is the fact that it was because of all the death threats she received from that sort of person.
