You might be saying, well Rachel, why are you picking on Anita. I’m not. I’m going to present some facts. Nothing more and nothing less.
One year ago Anita Sarkeesian had a massive amount of views on her videos even within the first day.
Now look at her most recent video. It isn’t nearly what she once had. People have stopped giving a shit about her videos and even about her. With the corruption in gaming journalism coming to center stage, her fate is sealed. If people succeed in holding the media accountable for their cliquey behavior, there will be no one left to give Anita Money. There will be nobody left to help her damsel it up anymore.
Her recent video was posted only two days ago. So what happened to pop up the moment she needed that extra boost? Oh a death threat of course and on the 26th of August. Which was yesterday.
Then she posted this today.
Followed by this
Okay, let’s look at this post..
Wow Anita that seems pretty bad..only this is a brand new account. Which if you look closely, someone typed all this up in 5 minutes. You can see the bottom of the twitter feed. Now I don’t know if you know anything about troll accounts, but experienced trolls never give a real first and last name. Certainly not the sort of experienced troll that would have taken the time to doxx her like that. So I’m more than skeptical of this death threat. Especially with people trying to shut down JordanOwen42’s documentary. Anyone can make a sockpuppet account and do this. Even Anita.
Experienced trolls with doxxing ability aren’t usually this sloppy. Certainly not when they can be traced. It’s far too convenient. Also Anita doesn’t seem to be legitimately frightened and she had no issues asking for money the next day. Gee it’s almost as if she’s trying to say, “I’m a victim, now give me money!”
My theory is that the money is running out and she’s realizing that her audience is leaving her. She needs drama for her business to thrive because she’s a one trick pony. So what do we do? Ignore her, and grab some popcorn. Because it’s about to be one hell of a show.
Don’t even acknowledge this shit. She’s collectively pissed off feminists and non-feminists alike. She’s pissed off artists, gamers, sex workers, and pretty much anyone else with critical thinking skills. She’s running out of people to care about it.
Bye bye Anita, don’t forget to let the door hit you on the way out! With every video that comes out people care less and less about her ideological bullshit.

Three things I can’t live without:
A piece of advice for all my followers:
Sometimes you fuck up and you feel like the world is coming to an end, but you have to remember that someone fucked up before you and before that person too and they made it through so you can too. so when you feel overwhelmed by it, think to yuorself “i an do this” and you can! it’s very possible. also don’t stay up late on tumblr. that’s not good.
i should take my own advice.
im really tired of europeans on here reblogging posts about racism in america and adding shocked disapproving comments like “get it together america lol” as if there isn’t an enormous amount of racism in europe and as if it wasn’t the europeans that first colonized the new world that planted the seed of racism in north america
to be honest, Europe got their S*** together awhile ago and they’re waiting for the young duckling to catch up.
In WWII for instance! We still treated our lovely African Americans like crap and the British would start bar fights with Americans because of that and would then ask our lovely darker skinned friends to join their army instead.
explain the xenophobia rampant in britain
and the fear of roma/gypsies
and the insane islamophobia
and the banning of hijabs in france
and the rise of national socialism in recent years
and the increase in hate crimes against jews
if you think racism in europe is over because britain desegregated their army i dont know what to tell you
the fear of the roma is explainable though.
the roma have a notorious nomadic culture, basically “take what you can and move on”. this obviously doesn’t mesh well with today’s society because of laws against thievery.
the roma also choose to lead a begging lifestyle too, and they’re notorious for scams such as this one, where they throw a baby at you to distract you while a second person pickpockets you while you’re distracted. Child begging rings another major issue with the roma population in europe [1 2 3]
also, because of their nomadic culture, they don’t have permanent homes. this leads to “squatting”, sometimes in houses that are not theirs [1 2 3 4]. european governments tend to have pretty good social security so that there is no need for the poor to beg. however, the roma usually take the social security money from and beg anyways to get extra [x (although these incidents happen in california, the same principle applies)]. the gypsy family in that incident obviously had enough money to afford a nice van, yet they still went out and begged. they also take apart government housing given to them for free and turn it into a squatting camp.
this thread on reddit is pretty informative about the roma situation as well x
although some of the actions taken by a few european countries are controversial, such as france trying to deport romani immigrants, it’s a very sensitive issue to deal with. the culture of the roma clashes heavily with current society. because they’re a particular ethnic group, it’s difficult to enact certain policies to prevent the roma from stealing, begging, squatting, and leeching off welfare without seeming xenophobic or racist. to be honest, i think many european countries are at their wits end trying to deal with the roma issue without being xenophobic/racist. there’s just not much they can do. damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
i don’t know much else about the other issues but i’m the most familiar with the roma one.
