    Anita has several videos about unrealistic expectations of the female form in gaming. Then she uses an unrealistic expectations for their avatars. The avatars look both younger, have arguably "white" bone structure and a lower body fat percentage than many women and their actual selves.

    It's a bit hypocritical to criticize one group for doing the thing then turn around and do the thing.

    BUT that isnt an uncommon stance for some people on the left. Many people buy into disgrimation being = prejudice + power, and since they do not have power in a male dominated hobby, they could argue it is ok to perpetuate prejudice.

    Imo that is stupid, but some people do think that way. That things are only wrong when the powerful do it.

    Everything fem frequency does is like this btw. It's all lazy or hypocritical. Other feminist gamers that critique her are usely more informative.

    Don't go where? If I hadn't seen the image of them as anime characters my 1st impression was that it was a guy. I just wrote it off in my head to not wearing makeup.

    Does anyone else want to tell him?

  5. No, we don't need that conversation. In fact we don't need this whole stupid conversation so let's just stop.
    You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.

  6. In a generation we just won't have cartoons because they are by design reductive and stereotypical.



    Anyway Drew why you thankful you still have a job, I thought you owned multiple companies and bitcoin hoards???

    She also recently whined on Twitter about how there were no female characters on The Mandelorian, which outed her as obviously never having watched it to begin with since there are plenty of female characters on that show.

    It seems like the people who bitch the most about movies/comics/games are the ones who don't watch/read/play them.

  8. I'm most upset that good feminist criticism is so absent on the internet. I grew up being told that the cream rises to the top, that the solution to bad speech is more speech. And yet all that I am presented with is this lazy criticism and outraged dorks. Why can't anyone make good content on the internet?

  9. Because it doesn't make money.
    Lazy bullshit clickbait apparently does, though.

  10. I wasn't going to start with the answers but yes, I believe most of the problems of the internet stem from Adsense.
