You know. It’s always easy to lie and make up fabricated stories to suit the agenda that you´re pushing. Sure, the story about the Anita Sarkeesian posters at E3 2015 aren’t new. As it´s been known for days now. However, the lies behind the creator and the origin of the Anita posters have been going on both during and after E3 2015. So I just thought that I could try to summarize the whole thing, since there still seems to be a lot of confusion about who actually made the posters (and who didn’t).
So I took the liberty to add some really interesting pictures on the subject:
However, the last picture about GamePolitics Managing Editor James B Fudge, caught my attention (as seen above). As it seems like James didn’t tell the full (true?) story about the Anita Sarkeesian (fem freak) posters at E3 2015. At least, that´s the vibes that I’ve got from all the comments and tweets about the posters and James article at GamePolitics (a post which he has updated two times since its original release). Anyhow, so now you might as yourself the following question “If #GamerGate, unsavoryagents and Sabo didn´t make the Fem Freak posters at E3 2015, then who made them?”.
I´m glad that you asked. Well, it seems like the Anita posters were made by some ex-students to Unsavoryagents (a conservative art movement). Funny enough, some people even though that it was Jonathan McIntosh that put up those posters of Anita (to then pin it down on #GamerGate). In a way, it didn´t really matter, since #GamerGate got the blame for the posters anyhow.
Just take IGN´s Editor Mitch Dyer for example, he tweeted out the following during E3 2015:
“Anyone who says Gamergate is about the press and not hatred hasn´t seen the branded signs scoring Anita Sarkeesian around LA. Idiocy” – IGN Editor, Mitch Dyer
That was just one of the many comments about GG and the Fem Freak posters. However, and as far as I know. No names have been reviled of the persons behind the posters (at least not to my knowledge). So that mean´s that the “real” creators of the Fem Freak posters are still unknown and unnamed.
