I hate "feminist". I feel more oppressed my feminism than I ever have by any male I've ever met, and believe me, there are pigs out there (male, AND female).    
   
Feminists want equal rights to men. Yet, they demean and shut them down, peg them all to be the same, and use the whole male population to account for the people that want a rise out of girls, or that are stuck in the past, or raised wrong.   
   
I was molested by a female when I was 8. My family went to the police, but because she was 17 they didn't prosecute her. Yet, if it were a teen boy, he would have gone through hell. I have NO problem with people wanting fair treatment, but I don't want to be compared to a man, because frankly, I'm a girl. I'm a little different for a reason.   
   
I can't stand the fact they act like men are beneath them, but want equality. Men only (usually) make more money because genetically, they're stronger. I would hate to be paid the same amount as a weak person that couldn't do half the work I could, in the time I could. That's not fair, either. In this day and age, if you work hard, you're rewarded. Regardless of what you look like. I don't believe in the way feminism is portrayed and I think it's a cop-out for certain girls to try to get their way, and use in arguments against men when their feelings get hurt.   
I believe in equity, regardless of** GENDER**, race or beliefs. Feminism isn't about being equal anymore. It's about demeaning men, and fighting for causes that occur in other countries, like it's normal here. I wish they'd fight for something that really happens here, or fight for them where it's an everyday occurrence.    
Yes, I'm proud of where we are. I thank my ancestors for their courage. But that was at a time when females didn't really matter at all. Now, you can sue if you're treated bad, and win. Why not help with starvation and abuse, not just from a man, but from women too, against all that truly deserve it?

There's also the fact that the picture she was using was from Super Princess Peach. Where she saves Mario. Damsel in distress my ass.

You haven't actually watched the video. It talks about the fact that Princess Peach does save Mario (the first and only instance in which she's ever saved Mario out of 13 games), only she does it utilizing her powers of out of control mood swings. Sobbing, rage so intense she's on fire, a calm bubble, and joy that allows her to fly.

The game relieved criticism for having "weird sexist undercurrents".

I just found it brilliant that he actually brought up points to counter their accusations. I mean, I'm sure that not all feminists are as bad as the ones in there (Specifically the red haired one who was just... dear god she was one of the most irritating people I have ever seen) but the fact that the loudest are the ones you see makes me wonder how they get away with it.

How do people believe their ******** ? All they do is shout and scream and flail around until they get their way. It's literally the reaction of a child.
User avatar #14 to #8 - numbersixtyseven **User deleted account** (11/11/2013) [-]
Well, that's sort of the issue. The leading groups who claim to promote feminism are extremist nutjobs who feel like every women has to feel opressed and that men should just shut up and apologize. I would say that feminism was needed very much in the 60's, and perhaps now in other parts of the world where women /do/ get blamed when raped and such. You know which countries I'm talking about.

My point is, in large parts of the world feminism has outlived its use, and is now being run by extremist bloody feminazi's as portrayed in the video. What we have right now to continue what feminism has started is equalism and humanism, where people are not judged by race or gender, but simply to where their personal strengths and weaknesses lay.

I'm sick of **** like this.

A woman whose brand is entirely based on awareness and social media is capable of gathering more funds than someone who has had virtually no exposure? How can there be patriarchy?

Do you know what happens far more than false rape allegations being prosecuted? Rape. I'm sorry but this individuals experience does not represent men and women's lives as a whole. Even then, while feminist groups may have opposed him, in the end feminism and feminist goals would make his situation more rare. Do you know what the best course of action for making false rape allegations easier to prosecute? Ending rape-culture. Why? Because it wouldn't be such a touchy subject to have a less (alleged) victim-biased investigation if rape wasn't so easily and consistently marginalized - if rape wasn't ridiculously easy to get away with to begin with, men accused of rape would have far better luck with a fair trial. The problem is that it's so easy to believe a woman who claims to have been raped - and it's completely misogynistic to blame women and feminists for this rather than, well, the rapists.

Sincerely, concerned man.

Well, don't forget that rape on males is (are?) also a far more than anyone is lead to believe.

I think that the issue here is that there are feminists that attack men based on the fact that a half of society have male genitalia. It honestly doesn't make sense why anyone would hold an advantage over any other person based on any particular thing, but that's the way politics work I guess.
#40 to #32 - voidherald (11/11/2013) [-]
"Well, don't forget that rape on males is (are?) also a far more than anyone is lead to believe."

This is a very common anti-feminist argument and it's fatal-flaw is that it's not anti-feminist at all. The reason male rape is underreported - even in relation to the rape of women - is partially due to the same reason it's underreported for women (self-blame/victim blaming, feeling dirty, etc.) that feminism is very obviously trying to break down - the other reason is because of an incredibly patriarchal view of masculinity and manhood (not just in a physical power struggle, but also in ability to express emotion) that causes male rape victims to be far less likely to report rape. Feminism is partially about breaking down that view of masculinity. Patriarchy is a system that puts women down, but that doesn't necessarily mean it does a lot for men.

"I think that the issue here is that there are feminists that attack men based on the fact that a half of society have male genitalia. It honestly doesn't make sense why anyone would hold an advantage over any other person based on any particular thing, but that's the way politics work I guess."

I'm kind of confused at to what you're saying here, but I largely think you're subscribing to the far-too-typical idea of the "strawman feminist." The VAST majority of feminists have nothing against 'men', and those that do are often the victims of very traumatic experiences that give them severe trust issues, so you can hardly be mad at them. Feminists are against patriarchy and misogyny, and will call it out where they see it. You don't have to be actively and consciously sexist to promote or perpetuate patriarchal or misogynistic ideals, and I think when men get called out on this we far too often, rather than listen, try and defend our status quo, because we don't think of ourselves as sexists.

voidherald was right about how the vast majority of feminists has nothing against men.
Unfortunately, most of the feminists that you see in the media are loud, hate men, and don't really have a valid reason to be a feminist, other than the fact that they have been wronged once or twice by some dude... That's why it seems like all feminists hate men while in reality only less than 5% of all feminists hate men...
User avatar #292 to #288 - achimp (11/12/2013) [-]
So where exactly did you get that statistic? It doesn't matter, of course feminists would answer that they "don't hate men" because it makes them look unreasonable. Among themselves it's a different story.

Source: I'm a feminist. My friends are feminists (mostly women, 1-2 guys). None of us hate men.

Sorry you think your experiences with feminists in the media trump the voiced objections and opinions of real every-day feminists.

Is the irony of ignoring the opinions of women about the feminist movement in favor of a profit-driven male-owned sensationalist media depiction of feminism really lost on you?

"Is the irony of ignoring the opinions of women about the feminist movement in favor of a profit-driven male-owned sensationalist media depiction of feminism really lost on you?"

THIS is why I know you are full of **** .
So you might not "HATE" males, but you certainly blame them for majority of your problems! Yes, the problem that people point to the extremist feminists is a result of MALE driven media sensationalism! I'll acknowledge your "movement" (which is based on sexism) once it stops blaming the opposite gender for every inequity.

Beyond that, I have no way of substantiating your claims. I don't know you, (and I have no desire to) and thus I cannot take what you say at your word.

Furthermore, YOU and YOUR friends are not a big enough sample size. Do you claim to speak for all feminists? Considering that most feminists claim to speak and fight for all women, I wouldn't put it past you, honestly.

In addition, the MEDIA is WITH YOU. Feminists and feminism driven agendas are celebrated and advanced in todays media. Don't give me this ******** about a "male dominated" media, because it clearly isn't true. NYT,The Washington Post, CNN, Huff Post, would never DARE attack feminists or portray them in a negative light.

So my friend, the REAL irony here is that you seemingly don't "hate" men, but somehow blame them for your problems. Think of Nazi Germany! I don't "HATE" the Jews, I just blame them for all of my problems."
Do you honestly understand what you are saying? Is your OWN hypocrisy lost on YOU?
#307 to #306 - voidherald (11/13/2013) [-]
Um whoa there dude, I'm male.

And the male-driven is not that males inherently promote sexist media, that's capitalism (read: profit-driven and sensationalist), but rather that it's worth noting that women might not be comfortable with media depictions of feminism if they were in the same position. (Of course, many would - many women would definitely turn down feminist values in favor of profits).

I do agree that portrayal of feminism in the media is improving, but it's a lot worse than you think. I'd recommend you watch the movie Miss Representation, it's crappily edited and produced but the interviews are amazing and it conveys the ways in which media can hurt women very well, especially when it comes to stuff like women in politics.
User avatar #308 to #307 - achimp (11/13/2013) [-]
All of my points still stand.

You want to argue economics? Fine. The free market provides the best (and most equitable) opportunity for everyone. Discuss.

Don't be so hasty to don that white armor, buddy. Read some of the **** the people in your "movement" say.

Not quite sure why how women feel (by the way, not all women are feminists! Shocker!) about the representation of feminism in media is relevant, considering that you can do nothing about it other than make your own pro-feminist literature.

To get back to the topic at hand, the woman pictured above got 180k for a ******** cause. Although SHE might be considered a radical, what about the people who supported her? Do their donations not lend credence to the idea that your movement is radical, or at the very least, support radicals?
#311 to #308 - voidherald (11/13/2013) [-]
She's a sensationalist. She's proving sensationalism makes money. She gets media attention by both feminists and anti-feminists, and then feminists are willing to give money to feminists in a polarizing issue. That's the problem - rational feminist opinions get drowned out in sensationalism (from both sides).

Also, I wanted to address a point you had earlier about women blaming men. This is a common misunderstanding, even among feminists. Women blame patriarchy, but that's not the same thing as blaming men. I'm unsure if you're familiar with the concept of the banality of evil, but patriarchy works similarly. Patriarchy does not rely on sexists, it relies on the maintenance of the status quo, which both women and men contribute to. This is why the idea that feminism is unnecessary is toxic - because even without being sexist they're about maintaining the status quo under which women (AND men, for example with the underreporting of male rape statistics, bullying, etc.) suffer. The banality of evil was invented to describe the lack of pin-point-able blame. The point is that it doesn't matter who's to blame, but that things need to change.
User avatar #312 to #311 - achimp (11/13/2013) [-]
Here's a question. WHat the **** is the patriarchy? Can I access a patriarchy database online? THat's weird, I wasn't given a password at birth. Let me guess, is it "itwasmy_privilege," isn't it!

The so-called patriarchy is the go to evil of the feminist movement; its antichrist. Not enough women in film? Patriarchy! Mother didn't get custody of her child? Patriarchy! God forbid, someone disagrees with a female feminist on the internet? Patriarchy!

What exactly needs to change? Men seem to get the raw end of the deal in todays society! They're almost never given full custody of their children, they MAY have to pay child support even when it's unnecessary. You feminists want to do *something* that is never precisely explained to increase the number of women in film and portray them how feminists deem them appropriate, regardless of what the public wants!

The TRUTH is feminists don't want EQUAL rights for women, they want SPECIAL rights for women. Evidenced by the idea that businesses should be required to pay men and women the same, but car insurance companies don't have to charge men and women the same. Evidenced even further by MANY feminist's desire to impose harsh restrictions on any media that doesn't agree with their worldview (ie, Swedens new film rating system).

The truth is you should stop telling us what we want, because we know better than you do Mr. Enlightened.
I'm not even sure you read what I wrote. Did you miss the part where I said that patriarchy wasn't just about men, but rather a subtle outcome of modern society caused by both men and women? Did you not read where I said patriarchy hurts men AND women, or did you just choose to ignore it in favor of your preconceived ideas of what feminism is? I would argue that men's inability to obtain custody rights comes from our arbitrary view of gender norms, which feminism is entirely about breaking. It's also worth noting that sure, women get an advantage when it comes to custody rights, but the idea that women are the ones who raise children definitely comes back to bite them in the ass when it comes to trying to get into the workforce as a woman - arbitrary gender norms are bad for everyone involved.

"The truth is you should stop telling us what we want, because we know better than you do Mr. Enlightened. "

This is rich, coming from someone who blames a implied gender-inequality on an obscure notion called the patriarchy, which has YET to be described beyond "something that harms both men and women!" In addition, you have YET to attempt to justify the name for this imaginary, invisible force - Patriarchy - as defined by google "a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line." So the reason for all inequality is a male system of government run by males. Do explain how exactly blaming the patriarchy isn't blaming males?

The patriarchy isn't about men? Is the dictionary definition wrong? I could go through the latin roots with you, if you'd like, but I'm pretty sure that the term "patriarchy "ONLY refers to men.

Furthermore, I have seen NO feminist campaigns to give a father custody rights and SEVERAL to give the mother rights. The feminist movement, however well-intended in it's alleged goal of breaking gender norms seems to only concentrate on the inequalities of one sex - that is, females.
#316 to #314 - voidherald (11/13/2013) [-]
You may not have seen a feminist movement on the topic of male custody rights, but you've certainly seen ones that challenge the idea that women are the natural child-rearers in our society - in relation to their place in the work force. I think that's a discussion that would inevitably lead to the discussion of custody rights, where many feminists would concede that there is a definite gender bias based on negatively stereotypical gender norms. I fully encourage you to start a movement against gender norms in parenthood, I just disagree that this movement is anti-Feminist in nature.
User avatar #317 to #316 - achimp (11/13/2013) [-]
YOu know, I WOULD start a movement if I thought it would get anywhere with your crowd.

Try it yourself. Propose, in whatever pro-feminist forum, that you support any father who deserves to keep his children, OR the defense of any victim of a false rape allegation. You'll be called things like a misogynist, or a chauvinistic asshole.

#315 to #314 - voidherald (11/13/2013) [-]
Again - telling feminists what they mean. Feminists aren't talking about 'a patriarchy' they are talking about 'the patriarchy' - a term that is not the dictionary definition but whose definition is actually under constant revision in feminist thinking and literature and constantly redefining itself.
The best definition I could give in a sentence is an infrastructure in our culture that subtly enforces negative gender norms.
User avatar #318 to #315 - achimp (11/13/2013) [-]
Whatever you and your feminist things think the definition of "the patriarchy" is, you STILL have not been able to justify the use of that particular word.

What else, is a word associated with MALES supposed to convey OTHER than a blame of males?

To people NEW to your movement, is it NOT immediately implied by the word "patriarchy" that men are the bane of your movement?
#320 to #318 - voidherald (11/13/2013) [-]
I don't disagree that feminists have an image issue but I would argue this has far more to do with the lack of ability for feminist discourse to reach the mainstream than problems inherent with the words themselves. The word has a long etymology from first and second wave feminism that it still connects to, and I don't entirely think it's necessary to abandon it. It's not like modern English isn't chock-full of terms that were once very sexist in nature that we can still accept (Mrs., for example).
User avatar #321 to #320 - achimp (11/13/2013) [-]
You cannot deny that when the word patriarchy is used it inspires the idea of blaming males, whether that is intended or not. Furthermore, if you actually wanted your movement to be understood you would start a movement to change the name of the feminist anti-christ to something more gender-neutral. However, since the name of your movement, one claimed to be based on sex equality, isn't gender neutral itself I can hardly expect that to happen.

If you truly wanted equality between the sexes AND you wanted your movement to gain a lot of steam and actually make a difference beyond calling men cis gendered misogynist pigs who need to check their privilege, you would call yourself a humanist, or an equalist.

Furthermore, you cannot provide a reasonable explanation as to why the feminist movement, one supposedly based on equality between sexes, continually focuses on issues regarding women.

The feminist movement is inherently sexist. Consider a recent poster campaign; the "don't be that guy" poster campaign. I'm sure you know what it is. In it, males are told not to "be that guy," i n the interest of discouraging daterape, despite the fact that less than 4% percent of men are racists. The poster campaign, rather than encouraging safety among females attempts to instill a notion of a dumb, idiotic male who NEEDS to be told not to rape people.

This poster campaign, BECAUSE it was a poster campaign DOUBTLESSLY received a TON of support from feminists, DESPITE its implication that all males will rape unless told otherwise.

I have shown you how a LARGE part of your movement knowingly supported sexism and you will STILL defend it.

User avatar #294 to #293 - achimp (11/12/2013) [-]
So instead of providing evidence for your claim ,you decide to simply re-state it.

I ask again: Where are you getting these statistics from?
User avatar #295 to #294 - nandaaz (11/12/2013) [-]
General knowledge, something you obviously don't have...
Muslims have a small percentage that's radical and is known to the world, while the majority is quiet and peacefull.
Christians have a small percentage that wants to force their beliefs on everyone, while the majority is quiet and minds their own buisness.
Every single group has a small percentage that's radical/annoying and well known, and a large percentage that keeps their mouth shut. This makes every group look bad, including feminists.

I can't be arsed right now to go look up a bunch of feminists, because frankly; I don't give a **** . Unless it's someone that wants to help women in 3rd world countries who have a chance of getting stoned every day, I don't care.
User avatar #296 to #295 - achimp (11/12/2013) [-]
Clearly you give a **** , you're sitting here arguing with me about it. If you TRULY didn't give a **** , you wouldn't be trying so hard to change my opinion.
You're the one who spouted statistics at me! Am I to assume that you pulled the 5% **** out of your ass, hoping I wouldn't call you on it? It is ALSO common knowledge that x amount of whatever group is or isn't radical?

And while yes, the point that there are radical sects of certain groups doesn't mean another group isn't inherently radical. Also consider the fact that the amount of radical Chrstians, or Muslims have been estimated by some sort of logical process beyond "WELL ITS COMMON KNOWLEDGE CHIMP UR STOOPID."

Furthermore, Feminism is inherently sexist, and thus inherently radical. Consider the name "FEMINISM." It implies sexism of itself; seeking the benefits of one sex over another. Therefore, anyone who considers themselves a feminist is either sexist, or incapable of understanding what Feminism really means.

Most feminists probably don't openly hate men, or admit to themselves that they do. However, MOST feminists most likely sympathize with those women who DO hate men, simply because they're women and can relate to other women more. I made a comment a while ago comparing Feminism to Nazism. Sure, not all of the Germans under the Nazi party rule supported the eradication of Jews, but that didn't stop the "few radicals who were the face of the movement" to orchestrate it OR gain power, did it?

I understand some feminists, the ones that aren't out spoken generally, genuinely mean good and want equality and stuff. But, I think rape-culture is ******** , and I'll have no respect for feminsts until they call themselves equalists or humanists.
#96 to #91 - voidherald (11/11/2013) [-]
Also why is it that only the 'quiet complacent' feminists are "okay?" It says a lot about the necessity of feminism that it's only acceptable to be a feminist if you don't talk about it - God forbid women are allowed to have outspoken opinions, right?
User avatar #99 to #96 - rhiaanor ONLINE (11/11/2013) [-]
That's not what I meant at all, don't twist my words, I meant that the ones people call "feminazis" and other crap like that, such as Sarkeesian, are usually the outspoken ones, as sad as it is. The ones that spew hatred rather than equality, and that all men are pigs and you should be able to stab them if they don't call you pretty in the morning. And I wouldn't call it rape culture, when at least 90% of the populations agree on it being terrible! Maybe if you wanted to say there is rape culture in places where people aren't punished for it, but not in somewhere like U.S.A. or France or something, where most cases of rape that end up in court, at least what it seems like, aren't real cases of rape.
#106 to #99 - voidherald (11/11/2013) [-]
But that's the point: very few even outspoken feminists are like that. They just don't get media coverage, because media thrives on sensationalism. This is what is called the "strawman feminist."

And the whole point of rape culture all you really have to look at statistics: early no one will admit to raping/be willing to rape, but if you don't call it rape and describe it the numbers of people who'll admit it increase drastically. Rape culture isn't just "rape isn't wrong," rape culture is when a woman claims to be raped and the first question asked is "what were you wearing?" or "were you drunk?" Rape culture isn't about bending the morality of rape (though if often can be: fraternities are pretty disgusting here), it's about shifting blame around and bending definitions.
User avatar #112 to #106 - rhiaanor ONLINE (11/11/2013) [-]
Well, I consider rape as forcing yourself "upon" another. If you're drunk the other person(assuming he/she isn't drunk as well) shouldn't have, but I would say regardless you shouldn't get drunk if you lose that much control, so the other person shouldn't get sent to jail or anything. But I honestly don't get where you come from, if someone blames it on what you were wearing, they are assholes and someone who would rape another wouldn't CARE what you were wearing. The people I know wouldn't do that, they would defend you till they had a reason not to if you claimed you were forcefully raped at least. Call me what you will, but I wouldn't defend someone for drunken "rape" (as I described previously) as they shouldn't have been drunk, and most likely, the other person was drunk too! By your definition, would you include the fact people use rape claims as a means of revenge, or just plain abuse it, as it's a hard to prove/disprove claim, and generally the supposed rapist is guilty before proven innocent. Don't get me wrong, I think rape is terrible and disgusting though.
#115 to #112 - voidherald (11/11/2013) [-]
But this all goes back to my first point: Men wouldn't be guilty until proven innocent if there wasn't so much rape! And regardless of whether or not you consider them 'just assholes' they exist, in great numbers!

#94 to #91 - voidherald (11/11/2013) [-]
I disagree. I think all feminists would identify as egalitarian (they are not exclusive) and to reject the word feminism would bother me - I think part of the problem is that feminism has developed a negative connotation due to the strawman examples of feminism, and it's important that the word be accepted back into the mainstream (much like how socialist has been demonized in the American public discourse). It bothers me that people will only accept something if it doesn't have female connotations - it says something about the marginalization of women's experiences and opinions.

And to claim rape-culture is ******** is ridiculous. Rape culture is evident even on the basic level of statistics, and I'm sorry but if you can tell a woman who's scared to walk alone at night, or a woman or man who was raped but nobody believed him/her, that rape culture is ' ********* that just makes you a narcissistic asshole who dismisses other experiences of life entirely because they 'don't believe it.'

The critique of this brand of feminist is that they want the rights and privilidges, but never mention the responsibilities.

I do not argue that she raises legitimate problems. As a father of 2 daughters, I am acutely aware of how media portrays females.

What I object to is that all her videos are addressed to the male CEOs of major organizations, a useless group to try and boss around.
She has never told women what they can do to improve their own station.
She has never told everyday (non media-mogul) men what they can do to help women either.
She has never taken the initiative to create media that meets her standard.

She has never proposed or acted on a plan in any shape or form, and she has never taken responsibility for fixing anything.
#90 to #11 - anon (11/11/2013) [-]
1) I have never seen her address CEOs. Where are you getting that?

2) Sexism and gender-stereotyping is massively prevalent in our culture; it's not something that any one person can "take responsibly for fixing".

The best that can be done, as of now, is to spread awareness and a better understanding of the phenomenon so that an effort can be made to depart from these stereotypes in the future, whether you're a writer, developer, or just a consumer.

User avatar #264 to #243 - damianblu (11/12/2013) [-]
Well I agree with their ideas of equal treatment between all sexes and peoples. I agree with their movements to bring in more female themed lessons and glorification. I agree with their opinions and statements of how the female gender in itself is discriminated against and not treated fairly even in modern culture. And lastly I agree with their views on the LGBTQA Community and such.

By "Flaws in execution" I mean something more like the extremists or the ones who shoehorn their views into every topic with no evidence to back up their claims. Or the ones who go about their desire for peace and equal treatment by using offensive, rude, tasteless, and even violent idealism and practices.

Or were you talking about Communists?

No, I just wanted to see if you actually knew what you were talking about, and weren't just another person going "hurr durr feminism," instead you pretty much hit the nail on the head.

However, I have to disagree with this idea that feminism isn't along the same lines as "equalism," the proper term for which is egalitarianism, an idea perpetuated primarily from the branch of feminism known as liberal feminism. The "extremists" that people see often come from the branch of Radical feminism, which IS actually based on communist ideology, more specifically marxist views on the economy and family life.

The only real "flaws of execution" come in the form of the people who crusade some fluffed up idea they have of feminism, rather than what feminism actually is, as a means of perpetuating their own agenda. a sad stain on the field, really.

sorry if this is a little late.

Feminism is just the name of the field of study, it's a subunit of sociology.

Feminism DOES put heavy focus into social, political, and economic concerns regarding women. However, it is very much dictated by numerous branches, each of which have their own sets of theories, criticisms, and particular sociological perspectives that they focus on.

Some branches of feminism focus almost entirely on women, some put focus on men, others put focus on both genders, some even leave the concept of gender completely out.

Each branch criticizes the other based on their own perspectives. A concept in the branch of radical feminism may be criticized by a concept in liberal feminism, where as liberal feminism may be criticized by the branch of ecological feminism.

Although a branch may advocate for the idea, it's not called "equalism" or "egalitarianism" because feminism, at its core, is not a social movement, it is a field of study that is HEAVILY dependent on empirical research, as is with all fields within sociology.

I have to agree with The Amazing Atheist's perspective on this.

She does make some good points in her videos, but I find that outside of those points, she seems to make things incredibly one sided. For example, I agree that I would like to play some fighting games where the women aren't dressed to do a porno scene, but at the same time, I don't like how it seems like its only women that are portrayed negatively.

The other problem I have, and this is where I agree with TAA, is that she disables comments and ratings on her videos. She doesn't allow discussion or debate on her movies about this kind of thing, and the one time she did allow it, she took out all the worst negative comments and used that to bolster her claim.

She did the same thing with many of the cutscenes shown in her videos. She'll show only the woman distress part, but completely ignore the part where two seconds later, she starts whooping bad guy ass or show the scene is just a parody.

Another problem I have with her is that according to videos brought up by Mr.Repzion, she didn't even play the games when she made her conclusions. From what is shown, she took Let's Play footage for her videos, and that's really low. She raised, what, $160,000? Then to see she didn't even play the games? Plus, her conclusions are faulty and show that she didn't even play through any of these games?

She seems as much a feminist pointing out an injustice as I am a Christian fundamentalist preaching the purity of the old testament.

TL;DR
1) She seems completely one-sided in her views (I.E. Only women are displayed negatively).
2) She cherry-picks cutscenes and comments (taken out of context no less) and uses them as fear-mongering towards women and those foreign to the gaming community.
3) Evidence shows she doesn't even play the games she raised the money to purchase and play through for her "research".
4) She turns on the blinders when it comes to negative criticism, and acts like she's immune from it.

Still think I'm making some BS up? I don't even ******* know how I could make money from a tinyurl, and I don't ******* want to know either.

So before you make ******** claims about what I'm doing, perhaps you should get your facts straight first.

Hold the **** up man. How exactly am I supposed to make money from posting a tinyurl?

The link that I used was because I went to the video listing, and right-clicked "Copy Link Address" instead of going to the video itself because I wanted to respond ASAP. The link was quite long, and I thought a TinyUrl would be easier. Yeah, in retrospect I should've just clicked the movie link itself.

Seriously though, tell me how the **** I'm making money off this, because I would certainly like to know if there was some kind of income I wasn't aware of?

Nice ******** excuses right there. No one is buying it.
User avatar #282 to #279 - simplescience (11/12/2013) [-]
Prove that I'm making money off of it? Show me this overwhelming evidence you have that I've made 1 cent off these links? Oh wait.

I showed the links, I explained the truth, and if you don't believe me, it's your loss for not accepting the truth. My conscience is clear, I revealed the truth behind the links usage, and I don't care if you believe me or not. It's your loss for being close-minded enough to not accept the truth being told to you and instead choose to tar me with the same brush as others who tricked you before.

Good day, sir/madam.

She constantly contradicts herself, and makes points about TV shows she just instantly assumes, rather than actually doing any research

She says if the goal of a game is to save a female character; then the female character is seen as a "prize to be won" - but then goes on to say that if that female character saves the male lead in the end, then the female character is becoming a "tool to be used" for the lead's protection.

She had a full video about True Blood, and how it endorses patriarchal attitudes in relationships, and there was a scene in which Sookie and Bill are arguing, Sookie storms out of the car and is instantly attacked by a monster.
According to Feminist Frequency, this is a way to say that if you argue with your boyfriend, a monster will attack you. And she says that this sort of stuff is clearly being "created by producers behind the scenes" to further endorse patriarchal attitudes.
Bitch **** you. That was just a way to introduce the season's antagonist, which is what the creature was - AND this storyline is one of the parts where the books and the TV show are the same; the story that was created by the female author; not patriarchal male producers.

She also talked about "The Demon Seductress" in one of her videos. She says how women are being portrayed as evil soul sucking demons in media
And she mentioned:
Giant Cricket woman from Buffy
Brides of Dracula
and how this is a negative message that women are evil.
NO! Bitch, **** yourself. The Giant Cricket monster was a metaphor for the pressure that is put on teenage men about sex, and you mention the Brides of Dracula, but don't mention Dracula? Who is a male representation of a "seducer"?
But heck, IF she did mention Dracula, she would just say that because he is the seducer, then suddenly "women are portrayed as weak under his control"
There is no pleasing this bitch. No matter how women are portrayed, unless it's "strong independent woman who don't need no man" then it's instantly negative.

TL;DR: 			****		 you

It's not like she's the only one.    
The only way to voice opinions is by speaking out. Whether they're popular or not, there's a difference between infamous and famous.   
    
Hitler-infamous yet he had followers and friends   
Miley-infamous yet she is loved by many   
   
TL;DR-The only way to stop this, is by standing up, and proving the contradictions.    
 (Note: I understand comparing the two in their lifestyles is a big leap, but I chose a radical, infamous example to portray my opposing view.)

This woman just whines and when she does make valid points, she drowns it in more whining. She also turns off comments, ignoring any kind of feedback she might get. All of it just makes her so hard to take seriously.
I hate it when she uses patriarchy too.
User avatar #65 to #16 - smithforprez (11/11/2013) [-]
and the whiteknights say "Its youtube, what did you expect from the comments theyre all trolls and garbage blah blah ******* blah". I shouldn't have to go around the net to post or to find an opinion on someone's work, having comments allowed on a video keeps the discussion in one place, and trolls usually get flagged or downthumbed up the ass anyway.

by making feminism look dumb she does the work of the patriarchy. WAKE UP SHEEPL!!!!1!
User avatar #84 to #65 - caocao (11/11/2013) [-]
Some of those whiteknights annoy me so much. If she was really invested in what she claims to believe in, she'd be willing to deal with haters and trolls instead of pushing away all her supporters in a poor attempt to run away from a fight that I'm sure some supporters would be more than willing to fight for her.

I know how you feel. I wanted to see what people had to say about her videos, but no, I had to search for other videos on youtube where people comment on what she's been talking about. People even sent her private messages that ended up getting completely ignored by her.

Did she ever finish that tropes vs women thing she was given money for?
User avatar #85 to #84 - smithforprez (11/11/2013) [-]
she made a few episodes but from what ive heard they were boring and badly researched
User avatar #290 to #85 - caocao (11/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, I saw them. Damsel in distress, mystical pregnancy and some other one(s). I didn't like them.

She also made something about why lego boxes are blue and one on christmas songs she finds sexist.
