Today is International Women’s Day, and a video game called HERadventure was supposed to be released today.  As you can tell from the name, HERadventure is a feminist video game.  It’s about a black woman “superhero” from another planet (likely she will be an illegal alien) who comes to Earth because women’s auras are diminishing due to things like “negative self-esteem, discrimination, eating disorders, and depression”.  Yes, this is going to be an actual video game.

What video game company would create such an absurd and money losing video game (that also promotes pseudoscience)?  None of them because video game companies aren’t that stupid.  This video game was created by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  Your tax dollars went to funding this useless video game.

I would be very surprised if this video game even gets released today.  Even if it does, they won’t be able to give this game away even if they payed people to play it.  This is guaranteed to be a flop.

    • Any particular reason that only the 2nd part of my comment (both parts of which have been shared here) was actually posted by you?

  1. Oh my fucking God,this is the most repulsive navel-gazing narcissistic bullshit I have ever seen, and I’ve visited Feministing.com on an occasion or two.

    Women, if you wonder why you aren’t at the top in business,science,mathematics, or law, it’s because you believe in pseudo-scientific bullshit and are the most repulsively self-obsessed motherfuckers on the planet. Is there anything, ANYTHING, tat you do not want to make about yourselves? I have yet to see it. And lest I be accused of hypocrisy, see the male Japanese appetite for butch ass-kicking heroines in fiction and video games.

    If women started up a business to find an alternative source of energy,it would most likely be distilled unicorn farts,distilled by being channeled through the psychic aether by special empowered independent sassy fabulous women who have it all and refined in their uniquely spiritual auras,stored in a quartz crystal and whose potency is increased by the addition of the tears of mean,mean patriarchal oppressorz who used their rape-y “logic” to say it couldn’t be done.

    I think, at this point, the He-Man Woman Hater’s club can just disband. There’s no argument against the complete social and legal equality of women that a misogynist could make that trumps the evidence presented by women themselves.

  2. I left the following comment on the blog post linked to in the first comment- it’ll be interesting to see if it actually get’s published, but I thought it was worth sharing here:

    _____________________________________________

    This game, like so much of feminism, perpetuates the very foundational paradigm of traditionalism (male disposability & female infantalisation) that it claims to oppose.

    Certainly sexual predatory, rape & domestic violence are serious issues, however these are genderless issues. It has long been known that rates of domestic violence by both men & women, & experienced by women are equal (& btw, studies which only ask women about their experiences as victims & only ask men about their experiences as abusers are utterly devoid of credibility when it comes to determining relative rates of domestic violence). Furthermore, emerging research into rape is increasingly finding that men & women rape & are raped at similar rates.

    However the reason we do not recognise this because women have been regarded by chauvinism as weak, pathetic, helpless (to the point of even needing to be protected from themselves) & perpetually innocent & therefore incapable of harming others because of a survivalist desire to arbitrarily protect the uterus. Conversely a penis, especially an erect penis, is regarded as a sign of perpetual sexual dominance & power by society. Under this worldview, male victims & female perpetrators are arbitrarily dismissed.

    The moment a man is abused by a woman, it is the man who is shamed for a failure to “be a real man” on his part by both men & women, rather than the female abuser for failing to respect the dignity & humanity of her victim (funny how women being blamed for being heterosexually raped based on how they dressed is abhorrent but a man being blamed for being raped because he has a penis is completely acceptable).

    This is because men, from the age where they are young boys, are groomed to believe they only have value based on their sexual prowess, their ability to provide & ability to protect – with any need for compassion by them being a failing on their part.

    The most telling example of this is where the family courts come into play where children born out of female-on-male statutory rape are concerned. Child rape victims as young as 12 are forced to pay their paedophiles child support because their being raped turns them into fathers. Ironic that no one bats an eye at this sort of systematic behaviour when we demand that underage girls who experience rape pregnancies, are given the option of abortions.

    Highly telling too is the fact that under “primary aggressor laws”, male domestic violence victims are arbitrarily arrested on police call-outs – where they will inevitably be raped & subjected to violence as they are assumed to be “wife beaters”. This effectively allows female spousal abusers to use the system as a source of rape & aggravated assault against her victim.

    This is ignoring the fact that female paedophiles in many respects are the last social taboo & that child victims of female paedophiles are almost never believed & almost always excused.

    Yet feminism merely amplifies this with the arbitrary notion of women exclusively being victims & men exclusively being predators. Furthermore this is underpinned by the ludicrous & zeitgeist based notion of patriarchy – which claims, when taken to its conclusions, that the homeless men of England arbitrarily oppress the Queen. Of course the irony that the underlying worldview of this was the direct impetus for the paternalism which trapped women in the kitchen & bedroom & denied them agency for centuries, should not be lost on anyone.

    (continued from previous post)

    The reality is that this video game, like so many other feminist (chauvinistic) messages, merely perpetuates this utterly depraved double standard, by further entrenching the notion that sexual predatory, rape & domestic violence, are heinous acts which only exist in a dynamic of “female-victim/male-predator”. In doing so it further entrenches the notion that men cannot be abused by women – to the point where even instances of female-on-male child abuse are considered an anathema & the victims invariably face disbelief, villainsation & outright ridicule when they do bravely try & speak up.

    As such, regardless of whether it is their intention, projects like this in effect, perpetuate domestic violence, rape & even paedophile apologetics where the victim is male & the abuser is female.

    Is it any wonder that men commit suicide at 3-4 times the rates that women do.

    By all means, issues of domestic & sexual violence must be explored & combated by society. However throwing the plight of half the world’s population under a bus to deal with the plight of the other half of the world’s population, is nothing but vile hypocrisy.

    It will be interesting to see whether this post is censored as “questionable expression”, however I would point out that as a male survivor of rape & domestic violence at the hands of a female abuser, such an action would be a textbook example of chauvinistic victim blaming & victim gagging.

  3. Not defending the game (and I have a negative overall opinion of it), I’m pretty offended by the “likely to be an illegal alien) reference in the opening paragraph of this post.

    Do you describe any other alien game (regardless of gender) in such terms?

    Given where the game is originating, Spelman, an all female African-American college in Georgia, it is highly likely that the “black woman” that the authors of the game are referring to would be African-American, who cannot, by definition be an “illegal alien” unless the author of this post refers to any “space alien” as an “illegal alien”. This I highly doubt.

    I suggest the blog author check the racism at the door prior to flip remarks, and stay on point.

    • Yes. It was clearly a joke because she is literally an alien, and illegal aliens are chosen people in the eyes of social justice warriors.

      Calm down.

    • Do you describe any other alien game (regardless of gender) in such terms?

      No I don’t because other video games with aliens aren’t about a leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics agenda. Of course the authors of this game aren’t illegal aliens, but they are pushing the leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics system where as CerberusAlpha correctly said illegal aliens are seen as the chosen people. Also, I have seen leftists try to shame opponents of illegal immigration by saying that they are trying to dehumanize illegal aliens by implying that illegal aliens are similar to extraterrestrial aliens. What I said is not racism, but commentary on the leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics which this game uses. I could have also pointed out how the authors of this game probably also made the main character a lesbian for the same reasons, but that has nothing to do with homophobia either.

    • Concern Troll Is Concerned

    • @Sondjata Your argument is utterly flawed. The fact is that this isn’t just an alien, but an alien superhero – including all the issues of alter egos which come with them. Furthermore, this is a post-911 world where xenophobia (and particularly anti-Islamic/Anti-African/Anti-Arab Xenophobia) has changed the politics of how immigrants are viewed.

      Unlike the days of Clark Kent (Superman) or Diana (Wonder Woman) for example the days of “give me your poor and your hollow masses”, in this world, every immigrant is regarded as a potential terrorist.

      So yes, the only alter ego that “HER” could have would be one of an illegal alien, which as has been pointed out, is often the poster child for affirmative action. There’s nothing racist about that- merely the character being contextualised in this modern world.

  4. The reply is full of straw man arguments to my original problem.

    1) “No I don’t because other video games with aliens aren’t about a leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics agenda.”

    That may be the case, but the knee jerk “illegal alien” in the opening paragraph is irrelevant to the “oppression olympics” you’ve mentioned.

    2) “Of course the authors of this game aren’t illegal aliens, but they are pushing the leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics system”

    A repeat of your first argument. However; I did not say the “authors” were illegal aliens. I said that the authors, being students at a well known African-American College are unlikely to have created a “black” female character that was an illegal alien. Nor have I read anything on said “game” that indicates the main character would be as such.

    3) ” have seen leftists try to shame opponents of illegal immigration by saying that they are trying to dehumanize illegal aliens by implying that illegal aliens are similar to extraterrestrial aliens.”

    Yes, I’m familiar with that argument and have had it directed my way for being against illegal immigration. That does not mean that I will simply toss out “illegal alien” about a character I do not know, simply because I feel like it.

    4) ” What I said is not racism, but commentary on the leftist “social justice”/oppression olympics which this game uses.”

    Well actually it is because you made a comment about a non-black “character” which, as long as I’ve read this site has *never* been directed at a white character or any white person of whom you’ve objected to. THAT is why it stood out and THAT is why I pointed it out. Again, “illegal alien” was irrelevant to the topic of “oppression olympics”

    5) “I could have also pointed out how the authors of this game probably also made the main character a lesbian for the same reasons, but that has nothing to do with homophobia either.”

    Probably? I didn’t read it, but I would guess, it being Spelman that it is unlikely (you do realize that generally speaking African-Americans are not exactly known for over tolerance of homosexuals (see black voter turn out in support of Prop. 8). That isn’t to say that the specific authors themselves may be amenable to such an idea but AFAIK such a guess is unsupported.

    I will re-iterate my point that you spoiled an otherwise decent post with that throw away remark about illegal aliens.

    • Well actually it is because you made a comment about a non-black “character” which, as long as I’ve read this site has *never* been directed at a white character or any white person of whom you’ve objected to.

      Really? How long have you actually been reading my blog? You are definitely a concern troll.

  5. For those finding it difficult to understand why a flip “probably an illegal alien” comment is problematic, think of it in feminist terms.

    Would you appreciate someone writing about the work of the author of this site as “probably someone who engages in sexual assault” because he is a man, speaking up on men’s issues which *some* men who do willfully engage in sexual assault also engage in?

    Of course not.

    Would we like it if the author of this blog was said to “probably have a small penis.” since *some* men who engage in such “anti-feminist” rhetoric do in fact have “small penises”?

    Of course not.

    That is why we ought not engage in irrelevant flip remarks that can be construed as racist or sexist.

    • Sondjata spewed:

      What “we” should be doing? If you want to go around playing prissy netcop, why don’t you start your own blog?

    • @Sondjata:
      Such a strong woman of character.
      Why don’t you go over to Jezebel and tell those real shrews what to do?
      Remember, (in the regular unlearned mind) … men may be the ones who rape,
      but I can guarantee you 100%, now and forever for the natural human race: women are THE ONLY ONES WHO ABORT.

      • This is a pro-male MRA blog, you retarded bitch …

        Nobody thinks in feminist terms except unicorn filled twats ie you …

        Go find a unicorn strapon & bare back a zulu african negro & his mudhut …

        Invite the KKK to watch, good times … bring skittles … africans love skittles, especially when theyre getting fucked by unicorns up the ass….

        You feminists seriously need to get more creative …

        Anyway as you clearly have nothing to say ….

        Show your tits or GTFO ….

  6. “check your racism at the door”

    That gave it away, your jig is up. If you want to try to infiltrate the Androsphere, you’d best give up saying such stupid, meaningless things.

  7. well I dunno, maybe the plot explains that it’s women’s own selfishness and conceit that is causing all the problems in the game world, and the solution is for women to own up to their flaws and ok I can’t keep up the act this game sounds like the most retarded shit ever.
