When #gamergate stops being #gamergate.

So here we are again. I though my podcast on gamer gate would be the last time I talk about it and mentioning Anita Sarkeesian. I’m not so lucky as what come across my twitter is a screen shot of Anita going off on a bat shit crazy tirade concerning the Marysville school shooting. Nothing about how sad it is this happened or any pseudo heart felt condolences. Nope, just a series of tweets going on about the evils of manhood and masculinity being the cause of all school shootings and the “fact” only men and boys commit school shootings. Below are those tweets for your viewing displeasure.

Once my mind and body came down and returned to a state of logical rage, my bull shit sensors start going off worse than a Geiger counter up the red hulk’s ass. Anita Sarkeesian claims that only boys and men commit school shootings. My memory as cloudy as it was, started to remember something on the ID channel about a woman named Brenda Spencer. After watching the quick and dirty clip from ID’s “Deadly Women”, BINGO! For those not familiar with the Grove Cleveland Elementary School shootings, On 01/20/1979 (a Monday), Spencer killed 2 people and wounded 9. After her arrest she claimed the reason behind the shootings, was because she hated Mondays. Below you can see an excellent documentary on Brenda Spencer.

Anita Sarkeesian always seems to have an out when shit hits the fan in an event such as this, only this time Sarkeesian doesn’t leave herself an out. Her comments are so easily debunked this time with a mere few minutes of research and documentaries. She’s used the whole gamer gate fiasco as a vehicle to drive her own misandrist agenda even getting the likes of Patton Oswald and Seth Rogen to defend her. Then it just takes the right mix of tragedy and stupidity to easily get called out on obvious bullshit and make her defenders look like hypocrites. The only option then become scape goating, which in this instance, is going to bite Sarkeesian in the ass even further.

Regardless, this won’t stop people from making the Marysville shooting into another misogynist straw man even with clear evidence Sarkeezian is talking right out of her ass. This isn’t about misogyny or even misandry for that matter. This isn’t even about gamergate anymore. It’s about the fact that Sarkeesian has no facts to back up outrageous and dishonest comments that come at the expense of grieving families. Today this stops being about #gamergate and starts being about the fact that Anita Sarkeesian has shown she doesn’t give a shit about the debate or controversy, but the fact that she is willing to use others grief to further this misandrist bullshit with respect for no one.

I’ve never seen this kind of horse shit come from the horror community. When you have kick ass female film makers like the Soska Sisters and Jennifer Lynch, It gives the Sarkeesians of the world fuck all to say. Gaming needs a huge dose of that. Makes me wonder if the Soska sisters would consider making a game one day. We can always dream.

Stay frosty sewer dwellers till next time
