I think Twitter just went up in flames. So what caused it? Well, it all started with a tweet by Anita Sarkeesian where she complained to Google that their “algorithm” is somewhat broken.
As it shows random “Youtube hate videos” (critic and criticism is NOT the same thing as hate Anita…) as news in search results (when you Google for “Anita Sarkeesian”).
So this is what Anita tweeted out less than an hour ago:
“Dear @google: Could your algorithm maybe not classify random YouTube hate videos as “news” in search results? Thanks. pic.twitter.com/7WTMICVOuQ” – Anita Sarkeesian via Twitter
And that made The Amazing Atheist go on his offense by tweeting the following:
“@femfreq It is not a hate video, Anita. It’s simply criticism. Much like what you do, only coherent.” – The Amazing Atheist via Twitter
And why did The Amazing Atheist even bother to answer Anita on her Tweet? Because the video in question (the “Youtube hate video”) just happens to be made by T.J ( The Amazing Atheist).
And to make things even more interesting. T.J´s video is like a review/video respons to Anita´s “Positive female characters in video games“. And i watched that video just now, and let me tell you what.
T.J dominated Anita, it was a pure slaughter-house. As T.J pointed out the obvious flaws of the video. Like the following:
– Anita haven’t even finished her Tropes Vs Women in video game series (which almost 7,000 backers paid $158,000 for). And still she starts of a brand new series? (“Positive female characters in video games”)
– Anita´s hypocrisy about Lara Crofts breasts (then vs now. Big vs smaller breasts)
– Anita´s ideal female video game protagonist don´t have a background story, no feelings, no personality nor any female looks whatsoever (you can´t even tell if it´s a female or not)
And i base that statement on Anita´s own words about the indie game (and female protagonist) “The Scythian“.
“A silent protagonist. A figure defined primarily by her own actions. Which makes her into a blank slave which the players can project themselves on to” – Anita Sarkeesian on “The Scythian”
When i heard that, i honestly just felt like repeating 7:34 – 7:38 of The Amazing Atheist´s “ANITA SARKEESIAN, YOU OFFICIALLY SUCK AT FEMINISM” video.
Because obviously that´s Anita´s (feminist approved) ideal for a female video game character. Seriously? No backstory, and no character development whatsoever, just a blank slate (that´s T.J´s own words pretty much).
And anything else seems to be nothing more than “fighting fu**toys” according to Anita. Why? Because sexually attractive female video game characters is a big no no.
You know what Anita? I don´t agree with you on this. And you lost this fight to The Amazing Atheist big time. K.O!
