Several years ago, a lawyer (now disbarred) named Jack Thompson went on a crusade against violence in video games. He called them “murder simulators” and tried to convince people that video games were caujsing murders and other crimes. Thompson’s antics with his anti-video game crusade along with all of his other crusades eventually crossed the line so the Florida Bar was forced to disbar him.
Adam Baldwin, the actor, has been a major force with helping gamers against Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn, and corruption in gaming journalism (aka GamerGate). He tweeted this picture comparing Jack Thompson to Anita Sarkeesian:
If you replace “violence” in Jack Thompson’s statements with “sexism”, you get everything Anita Sarkeesian has said. The only difference between Jack Thompson and Anita Sarkeesian is that Sarkeesian can scream misogyny and has a horde of manginas willing to defend her. Jack Thompson made the mistake of being born with a Y chromosome. Unlike Sarkeesian, Thompson had nothing to fall back on when his lies about video games were challenged and shown to be lies.
Anita Sarkeesian is Jack Thompson with breasts, but that gives Sarkeesian an advantage Thompson never had.
