Man Boobz Contest: Find the Whiniest, Most Entitled Response to Anita Sarkeesian

From "Damsel in Distress: Part 1 - Tropes vs Women in Video Games."
From “Damsel in Distress: Part 1 – Tropes vs Women in Video Games.”

So Anita Sarkeesian, who apparently didn’t run off with all her Kickstarter money to found a Misandist Gynarchy in the wilds of Canada, has  released the first video in her Tropes vs Women in Video Games project. (I’ve embedded it below.)

Naturally, this is causing great consternation in certain corners of the Internet (*cough* Reddit *cough cough* everywhere else that misogynistic nerds congregate *cough*). In the Man Boobz forum, Katz has started a contest to see who can find “the whiniest, brattiest, most entitled response” to Sarkeesian’s video on the Internet. So far Katz and Myoo have found a couple classic comments from irate Sarkeeianaphobes:

[H]ow does one go about stating that genders and gender roles are social constructs? I mean is evolution nothing to her? Does the patriarchy make male peacocks dress provocatively?

Yes. Yes it does.

And:

I’m gradually losing respect for the opposite sex. I’ve unfollowed people on tumblr who talk about how great she is, because it actually causes bile to rise in to my throat.

Yeah, that’s a totally reasonable response to a woman making a video about video games.

So anyway, I’m thinking we should bring the contest over here.

See what you can find! Consider it a sort of scavenger hunt.

Here’s my contribution, from the Men’s Rights subreddit, complaining that Damsels in Distress are the truly privileged ones:

mrsarkees

Amazingly, this acutally got called out on r/mr as being pretty damn stupid.

Also, I have another question, to add to the stack of other questions I’ve been asking lately: Just why do you think so many guys get so angry when girls and women invade what they consider a male sphere, like gaming? (Also, why do they consider gaming to belong to boys and men?)

Oh, and here’s the video that’s causing all this hubbub:

I find blondes to be unattractive, so nope Clifford.

I like ’em black haired and fat.

My vagina doesn’t seem to respond to blond men at all. Is it broken?

No your lying. I dyed my hair blonde and received even more lasvicious looks and offers than i was getting before, with muscles and brown hair.

Ryan Gosling is the only blonde man I can think of that has any effect on my vagina.

This just plain accusation of lying is getting boring. How bout you provide us with the ever reliable evopsych* to back it up? You know, to clarify for our inferior female brains.

This guy is maybe the most attracted I’ve ever been to a man.

Maybe I need to get a vagina update. Take mine in for a newer model or something because it is clearly malfunctioning.

Let’s compare the success of my vagina to the success of your sock.

My vagina: Doing pretty well

Your sock: Wah I’m so lonely and unhappy, why doesn’t anyone ever talk to me unless I’m trolling?

Come on, Pell. Troll harder damn it! Take some mangled Freud and Darwin, and chop up the results into a word salad with an insecurity-vinagrette dressing. That’s the Pell gold standard!

This “no, you’re lying, you really do find me attractive” stuff is strictly amateur hour.

Cliffy, maybe it’s just that YOU look better as a blonde. Doesn’t mean everyone does or that every blonde is more attractive. I know when I dyed my hair to black and got bangs I went from no dates to juggling men. It just happened to be the right hair style that made me look the best.

I’d recommend going home, but that’s probably just because I’m the kind of person who crumbles under too much work and needs lots of breaks.* So I’d just say go with which one would make you happier/more refresheder unless there’s like, deadlines and stuff.

Actually Clifford just showed a surprising awareness about trans* issues. Vaginas are NOT inherently female, although statistically speaking vaginas are more likely to reside in female bodies than male ones. Good job, Clifford!

(Can we not call him Cliff? Cliff Pervocracy does not deserve to have hir good name sullied…)

How far away is home, when do you need to be back, and is there anyplace at work where you can nap?

Are we supposed to be giving the emotional support to you or your vagina? Because I’m okay at giving emotional support, but my vagina is very bad at it. She hates interacting with other vaginas. She gets so jealous.

I just got home, and I’m too tired (i.e. drunk) to look at all the threads: Have we heard from lowquacks?

Perhaps you mentally get the emotional support from other females, and your vaginal gets emotional support* from hapless beta males who will do anything to please you?

Dear Pell is bringing me back to conversations I overheard in the hallways at lunch* in grade 8. “I’ve had sex with like 11 girls. And they all made ‘O’ faces. They’re all in love with me now and I’m like, okay, it was just doing it, I don’t like like you, but they don’t care. Well whatever, you guys will understand when you’re older. I’m kinda mature for my age.

*My Jr/Sr high didn’t have a lunch room, so you just sat in a hallway somewhere. Is that unusual?

Just so we’re clear on this emotional support thing, nobody should try to hug my vagina.

(Unless they’re a guy who’s more skinny than buff and definitely not blond.)

“*My Jr/Sr high didn’t have a lunch room, so you just sat in a hallway somewhere. Is that unusual?”

Afaik, yes.

Pell, could you explain who causes pantsfeelings is there isn’t a vagina down there? Or it isn’t really interested in people of the male persuasion? Cuz I suppose you’ve explained what gay (or bi) trans* men and straight (or bi) cis women like, but how about the rest of us?

Isn’t it kind of hard to hug a vagina?

I’m sleeeeeepy. Good night, folks.

Aww, did our piñata go to bed? Or just doing some crunches to work on those killer abs?

Cuz I’d also like to know how this abtraction works if one tends to go all BRAAINSS and then get pantsfeelings.

Re: hugging a vagina.

it depends. Are we talking the actually vagina, or more of the whole pubic area which is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a vagina?

Because one of those things is easier to hug than the other.

CassandraSays
CassandraSays

Yeah, on second thoughts, it might be awkward even if the person doing the hugging is non-troll-approved. Whispering comforting things directly to the vagina might be awkward too, though.

cloudiah

[Not sticking the flounce!] Now I really am going to bed, or at least to read for a while and then to bed. But first I will whisper comforting things to my vagina.

What?!!? I want my vagina to sleep well too!

Hugging the vulva isn’t a great deal easier than hugging the vagina it’s self. More like, the vagina hugs you. I suppose one could try to hug the mons pubis.
