Feminists get riled up at imaginary things. Anita Sarkeesian and other feminists get angry at “violence against women” in video games, completely imaginary violence that is only a tiny fraction of violence in video games. (Most violence in video games happens to men obviously.)
Now, feminists are outraged over the actions of Kermit the Frog, who being a muppet is an imaginary person by definition. Apparently, Kermit the Frog is an evil misogynist for dumping his girlfriend, Miss Piggy, and finding a new girlfriend. Maybe Kermit’s real crime to feminists is that Kermit finally left Miss Piggy after decades of her abusing him:
Since Anita Sarkeesian believes that a small bit of violence against imaginary women in video games turns gamers into monsters that will beat up and abuse women, she must have been all over how Miss Piggy is treating Kermit, right? If video games can make men violent, then watching Miss Piggy abuse Kermit will cause girls to think that it is all right to abuse their future boyfriends and husbands. It will also cause boys to think that they must submit to the abusive behavior of their future girlfriends and wives.
I did a search on Anita Sarkeesian’s writings to see if she had talked about anything having to do with the muppets. I couldn’t find anything about Miss Piggy being abusive. All I could find was some garbage about something called The Smurfette Principle. Maybe Anita Sarkeesian thinks that more male muppets need to be abused by their wives and girlfriends. It’s the only way all her beliefs make sense together.
