You know for a long time I've been trying to convince myself that internet Social Justice may still have something good to offer, but this last round of crap may well have just broken me.

I’m hearing this sentiment a lot.

By and large, this seems to have been the reason for a lot of informed, rational people sticking with feminism after getting the lowdown about it. They’re afraid that giving up the group that has the most clocked hours already under its belt will prevent gender equality from being actualized…except if you know that the group that’s wielding that kind of traction is actually doing more harm than good, then what are you staying for?

I know this is why a lot of e-personalities stick with it.  It earns them fans and money.  The problem, as we’ve seen all the goddamn time, is that the moment those people inevitably fuck up and offend a small group of SJWs, they all suddenly swarm and demand your head on a stick.  It always backfires but these people don’t have the integrity or patience to build a real fanbase out of dedicated users, instead opting for the hugbox that will, eventually, crush them.

If they change anything in Saints Row, I’m gonna beat Sarkeesian to death with my controllers.

I can say this, and you can’t comment on this because I have a vagina. SARKEESIAN LOGIC.

Ewwwww noo WHY DO PEOPLE TAKE HER “ADVICE”

SAINTS ROW!? TTHIS FUCKING CUNT IS GOING TO RUIN SAINTS ROW!?!? IF THEY CHANGE ANYTHING HOLY SHIT THERE WILL BE A GODDAMN WAR!

If she fucks up this game… Jesus help me. This is literally my favorite franchise. 

Wrekt

Y’all are just proving her right to be honest. Don’t even care for her but if she’s making you dweebs that butthurt, she must be doing something right.

Oh really?

Well the Prop 8 people made a lot of gay dweebs butthurt.  So they must have been doing something right.

OneMillionMoms trying to get Ellen and Glee banned because of “homosexuality being shoved down our children’s throats” got a lot of people butthurt, so they must be doing something right.

The Fox News lady who said Mass Effect was alien rape porn got a lot of dweebs butthurt so she must be have been doing something right.

All the Christian soccer moms who tried to blame Mariilyn Manson for Columbine got a lot of dweebs butthurt, so they must have been doing something right. 

Remember, when Anita tries to shit all over games that have strong female protagonists based on her half-baked, contradictory jargon, or meddles in games that do have strong female protagonists in groundbreaking roles such as Mirror’s Edge (one of the very few western games to star an Asian woman as the protagonists) or tries to claim that Ellen Ripley is a sexist and misogynist stereotype, or erase the achievements of the many women involved in the game industry over the last 3 decades as writers, coders, designers, artists, actresses, programmers, animators, riggers, models and creators in general such as Rieko Kodama, Soraya Saga and Terri Brosius, because these women invalidate her narrative and make her seem less of the pioneer she portrays herself as, and people call her out on her counterproductive bullshit, she must be doing something right.

I hate this.  They should not take Sarkeesian’s advice on anything.

Now, please.  Tell me, a woman and a lesbian, how I’m such a dweeb for thinking that?  Because we all know what you meant by “dweeb”.  You meant “straight dues”.
