Anita Sarkeesian Included in TIME 100, Even Though She Lost Big in Vote
TIME Magazine has been running an online poll for their “100 Most Influential People.” The whole thing jumped the shark about eight or nine years ago, but some people still treat it like it means something. The voting was open this year, and the mega-fraud Anita Sarkeesian was listed. She got 75% No and 25% yes. So naturally, she made the fucking list! Why even have a goddamn vote if you’re just gonna ignore the results? But that’s not even the kicker, ladies and gentlemen! Guess who wrote her fucking article? That little sleazeball Wil Wheaton. You remember him, right? He’s the one that wants to kill off internet anonymity. It’s not a surprise that he’s in league with a like Scameasyian.
I’m just gonna print this verbatim, and if Time wants to sue me, go right the fuck ahead. I’m pretty much broke anyway, and I’ll get more famous off the trial. So please do it (By the way, she’s listed in the Pioneer category. The only thing she’s pioneered is how to infiltrate gaming with a flimsy victimhood gimmick):
Anita Sarkeesian has played video games her whole life.
[EDIT: This seems to state otherwise, Weasel Wil]
In 2012, after observing that women represent about 40% of the gaming audience, she launched a crowdfunding campaign for Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a web series that would “explore five common and recurring stereotypes of female characters in video games.” She hit her goal of $6,000 on the first day and ultimately raised more than $150,000. But she also became the target of vicious, misogynist harassment that included death and rape threats, pornographic vandalism of her Wikipedia page and a coordinated effort to have her Kickstarter flagged as terrorism. All of this because she wanted to have a conversation about the way women are portrayed in video games.
Anita is just the latest woman writer to prove the law coined by journalist Helen Lewis: that the sexist comments on any article about feminism justify feminism. In the face of hysterical and childish abuse, Anita has refused to back down. She continues to speak around the world about the role of women in video games and popular media. She also talks about her life as a target in the online culture war known as Gamergate, waged by entitled male gamers who fear change in an industry that is evolving while they seem determined to remain 15 forever.
Anita is a feminist for the digital age, using modern tools and platforms to engage thousands of people who want to hear her thoughts and respond to the challenges she raises. A lesser person may throw up her hands and unplug her game console, but Anita is determined to ensure that video games are inclusive and representative of everyone who plays them. As her detractors grow increasingly unhinged, we have proof that her efforts are working.
Wheaton is an actor and the author of Just a Geek
He’s also a colossal shithead for writing those lies. This woman hasn’t been a gamer her whole life, certianly not in 2010. She only started with that bullshit a couple months ago in her New York Times editorial. We actually have the charlatan recorded saying this herself:
Letting a fucking third-rate actor write a blatantly false puff piece about one of the most disingenuous figures on the public stage? That’s repulsive. Time has turned into BuzzFeed-Lite. There’s nothing worth saving there. I’ve witnessed the transition over the last few years, but it’s now apparent that the transformation is complete. And this is even leaving out bitchboy Wheaton’s nasty attacks on GamerGate. But as we’ve established, the no-talent fuck hasn’t any qualms about piling lie upon lie. The whole thing just shows me Time magazine is a joke. Most of the mainstream media is a joke. That’s why we have to create our own.
