So I sat down and watched some Feminist Frequency Videos

And you know what? She defied my expectations a little bit.

I have heard a handful of major criticisms about Sarkeesian in the past  around several parts of the internet, and I feel like none of them really applied as I was watching her videos.

Her tone was, at worst, passive aggressive, and never resorted to any intimidation tactics in her videos to make her point. 

She never really “cherry-picked” any games to make her point, either. Most of the games she talked about were well known and spanned multiple genres of games from differing companies.

In addition, she cites facts about the games with about the same amount of rigorousness as one would expect from, say, DidYouKnow Gaming or something of the like.

She never even says that the games represented in her videos are bad games, or that anyone who enjoys them are bad people. All she’s arguing is for game developers to stop making use of sexist tropes as a lazy way for writing a female character. 

The videos are also very well edited, I might add.

All in all, I feel like most of her criticisms are ultimately shaky at best. Unless, of course, your real criticism of her loosely translates to “Gitchyer femnazi agenda outta mah vidyagames”, in which case…No.

So I decided against doing the whole thing, so I just did line art and colors on the face.  This is the first time I really experimented with shading and highlighting and such. Tell me what you think. Also, I drew and colored from memory, so stuff may look off. Let me know if I need to change anything and, depending on how easy it is to fix, I’ll fix it.

Reboogleling for the day crowd. (Gonna reblog again at a decent evening hour, just FYI.)

It’s probably all of the GamerGate-y stuff that’s been exploding on the internet, but I’ve just been seeing a lot of really angry and largely unfounded anti-feminist things on the internet and I feel sort of sad about it.

Why do people get so angry when someone talks about misogynist tropes in popular culture?

I mean, I understand sometimes people just put sexist comments on a feminist article for the sake of offensive humor, but I have been observing people taking steps beyond those kinds of activities into things that require actual effort. This implies to me that those people may actually have those opinions as opposed to just being satirical.
