Growing Reasoned Criticism of Anita Sarkeesian

The amount of rational, reasoned responses to Anita Sarkeesian’s brand of feminism is growing. This is probably the most detailed and specific and biting so far:

I have some friends contemplating doing a Kickstarter project on toxic and dishonest forms of feminism that infantalize women and demonize men. It should be interesting to see if that comes to life. One thing that’s obvious: whether intentionally or on purpose, Anita Sarkeesian could not have made the situation better for herself if she had tried.

Meanwhile, I note that it’s still totally OK to fire a nobody for saying the words “booth babe” about a celebrity, and women who dissent from Sarkeesian’s views get very ltitle notice except for places like this blog.

Anyway, I recommend watching the above two videos before actually responding to them.
