Feminist Frequency’s Next Target: Misogyny in Video Games. Video Game Community Subsequently Shits Itself

Many of you may know that Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency recently started a Kickstarter to fund a vlog series called Tropes vs. Women in Video Games where she plans to focus on misogynistic stereotypes in video games! It has reached over $80,000 with only a $6k goal. There are still 70 hours left on the starter if you’d like to donate! You can learn more about the project by clicking the aforementioned link.

This Kickstarter sparked a tremendous backlash from the male gaming community. She got threat after threat after threat in response from a hoard of fedora-wearing tough guys who think “misandry” is a Real Thing and somethingsomething women belong in the somethingsomething.

This has been covered by a few gaming sites! I was looking at through Destructoid and I couldn’t HELP but make fun of all of the horrible comments on this particular article with my wonderful friend Sean. HILARIOUS in all of their glorious stupidity, but still horrible.

So, massive trigger warning before we begin: misogyny. So much misogyny.

HERE WE GOOOOOOOOOO

addendum: COOL HELLSING AVATAR, YOU MUST BE THE EDGY ONE IN YOUR ANIME CLUB

sean found some really good bad ones elsewhere on the internet, too

and here’s a final one for the road

I HOPE YOU GOT SOME ENTERTAINMENT OUT OF THESE DUMB CHEETO-FINGERED ASSHOLES!!!

if you got through all of that i applaud you!!
