Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. I hope you’re having a good Christmas. Unfortunately, we have to talk about Anita Sarkeesian today. Sarkeesian lies about video games. She also lies about other things like Christmas Carols:
Here is a good takedown of Sarkeesian’s lies:
Everything Sarkeesian says is lies. She starts out by twisting the Mariah Carey song, “All I want for Christmas is you”. It’s a song with an anti-materialist message about how the important thing at Christmas is being able to spend it with your loved ones. Somehow this positive message is oppresses women. I can’t figure out Sarkeesian’s reasoning on that. I suspect that Sarkeesian is worried that women might not get as many presents from men if men follow the advice of the song.
As bad as that is, Sarkeesian is a bigger liar about the song, “Baby it’s cold outside”. Sarkeesian says that it’s a date rape song. To be able to get anywhere near that idea she has to lie about the song’s lyrics. As is pointed out by the second video above, Sarkeesian cuts off the song right before the lyrics clearly contradict what she is saying. Sarkeesian is engaging in lies and manipulation. This is not surprising for anyone that’s familiar with her videos on video games.
I think we need #ChristmasGate to add to all the other anti-feminist gates. That way we can get the War on Christmas people to do something useful for a change by going after Sarkeesian and her ilk.
