Feminist Frequency

@femfreq

The first video I saw in her Tropes against women in video games series left me unimpressed. The tone was a bit grating and it seemed too repetitive, but I still felt supportive of Anita Sarkeesian and the series.

The topic was women as objects for the player to win. When I opened the Giant Boulder of Death game the intro showed a “female” boulder (wearing a pink bow) get kidnapped leading the “male” boulder to go on a rampage to save her.

The absurdity of forcing gender on boulders while using this cliché woke me up to the importance of what Sarkeesian was saying and my ignorance on the subject.

While I still feel the videos are repetitive I now understand why and use them to educate myself.

Thank you for making the videos Anita.

Yes please, explain to me again how this has nothing to do with sexism.

This is absolutely disgusting and completely unacceptable from anyone for any reason.

To think Sarkeesian is getting it for necessary and informative game critique is incomprehensible.

Woah

well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it

Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know. 

If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck

I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.
