A proposed new anti-Anita Sarkeesian "documentary" promises to give voice to the loudest "silent majority" the world has ever known

I don’t usually post raw videos from the insufferable assholes I write about on this site because, well, they’re insufferable assholes, and listening to them smugly opine about shit they’re completely ignorant about is generally about as entertaining as, you know, GirlWritesWhat videos. (I know, that’s a bit circular, but I really couldn’t come up with anything more insufferable than that.)

Anyhoo, I’ve broken my rule and posted this video because the two guys who made this video — the would-be filmmaking duo of jordanowen42 and Davis Aurini — are so over-the-top in their insufferable assholism that it’s actually kind of perversely charming.

You see, these two woman-hating YouTube blabbers — the first a belligerent doofus whose apartment is nearly as unkempt as mine, the other a sort of PUA version of Anton LaVey — are pitching what they claim will be an important new documentary exposing the evil “Social Justice Warrior” agenda of evil women and traitor men like Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn, and, well, I can’t remember the names of any of the men. It’s called The Sarkeesian Effect. And they want your money to fund it.

Their promised “feature-length documentary” will be a powerful work of investigative journalism that will give a voice to the voiceless — to the “silent majority” of, well, angry white dudes who spend whatever time they don’t spend playing video games posting obnoxious and abusive comments about Anita Sarkeesian and Zoe Quinn to YouTube and Reddit and eleven zillion other websites that cater to them.

In other words, this is the loudest “silent majority” I’ve ever run across.

But these are guys who love to pretend that their bold thoughts are being silenced, and PUA Anton LaVey Davis Aurini happily panders to their persecution complex:

Don’t let these people silence us. Your contribution will be a defiant strike against the degeneration and corruption that is going on in this world.

The word “degeneration” helps remind us that Aurini considers himself a part of the neo-Nazi-lite “Dark Enlightenment.”

Anyway, they argue that you should send them lots of money, because PUA Anton LaVey’s suits can’t be cheap you’ll be striking a blow for every dude who’s ever called Anita Sarkeesian a “whore” in a YouTube comment. Well, they don’t literally put it that way, but, you know, come on. That’s what they mean.

And hey, who wouldn’t trust this dude with their hard-earned cash?

Send me your money! Heh heh heh heh heh.
Send me your money! Heh heh heh heh heh.

I found this video hilarious from start to finish. Stick with it at least until, a little after 6 minutes in, PUA Anton LaVey Aurini lights up his second cigarette, showing what a devil-may-care attitude he has by mumbling his lines with a cigarette in his mouth as he fiddles with his lighter.

Yep, that’s the kind of quality investigative  journalism you can expect from these two.

As far as Mai’s animation?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mai_Shiranui#mediaviewer/File:MAI_KOFXIII_stance.gif

Yanno, as someone who has a pair of boobs, who runs off and on and has done a smattering of martial arts?
There is no way I could spar or run with my hooters flopping around like that, ok?
Those things HURT when gravity kicks in, alright?
…Not that the rest of the game is realistic… But I’m just putting it out there.

(Kinda like her cleavage in that GIF.)

I knew it. I don’t anything about video games but I know plenty about sad misogynist trolls.

From the Wikipedia entry:

She is a founding member of the King of Fighters Tournament’s Women Fighters Team and is madly in love with the American Andy Bogard who is ambiguous about their relationship. The character also appears in the games’ various manga and anime adaptations, and plays a leading role in the live-action film.

Largely due to her sex appeal, Mai has become one of the most popular and recognizable female characters of the fighting game genre and video gaming in general,

Sounds like a sexist and racist colonialist fantasy character to me.

So, a scantily-clad large-breasted female character whose major claim to take is “jiggling.” Nope, nothing sexist in video games. Nothing at all.

And suddenly, it all makes sense. Anita Sarkeesian is evil for calling this shit out, the two trolls trying to raise $15,000/month to “refute” her (with Ezra Fucking Levant, of all the hilariously awful sources!), and this Sheer Ennui creature coming in to snipe at us for making some well-earned fun of them.

This has got to be the shortest lived effort at trolling yet.

So your telling me that a character Shirunai uses as his avatar while defending “critics” of Anita Sarkeesian justifies Anita’s videos completely?

Isn’t this like Lewis’s Law? “The comments section on any feminist article justify feminism?”

In my dark child-hood of embarassed porn hunting, I recall a story about a woman who had muscles in her boobs and could punch people out with them. I don’t know why. But if that were the case, wouldn’t you still want to keep them close and prevent them from swinging around?

I already have a headache so this Shiranui person is making it worse. Good for them! Woody was fun to chuckle at but Shiranui has that….essence of…oh I don’t know, needing to hover and make sure we comment on the dumb shit zie posts and then proceed to condescend to us when we don’t “get” what zie is saying. What’s there to get? You’re annoying. Also, shut up, Woody. I still don’t like you either.

Did they just admit that zir life is video games?

I don’t do video games much, but I’m actually a giant magical panther, who’s continually frustrated by the fact that everyone ignores me when I’m just trying to point out that that thing is not your friend!!!!!!!!

Wait, no. That was last weeks novel series for my downtime. I’m actually a hobbit “burglar”. Thanks a lot, Gandalf; if I make it out of this alive, I’ll be sure to install a dangling chandelier. May you bang your head on it every time you visit.

Yeeeeahhh, I’m really not loving this new WordPress update. Also I have no patience for this one, is anyone actually enjoying this one? Because if I wanted to see bullshit videogame boobs, I’d go hang out on EscherGirls and bikiniarmorbattledamage, and I’m starting to wonder at exactly what point continually posting titillating pictures starts breaking the rules, because ugh. Just ugh. I’m feeling skeeved out.

This has to be the most pathetic and sad troll ever. How does he imagine posting boobtastic video game images is somehow disproving misogyny in video games? The critical thinking is not strong with this one.

Very true, Jarred H.

Perhaps zie comes from an alternate universe? That would explain why zir reality seems so different than the one with which I am familiar.

I’m thinking Cheetos and basement mildew. Or is that too trite? Maybe it’s microwaveable burritos and stale cigarette smoke clinging to 1970s shag carpet.

I love how you refute their points and their criticisms instead of building up strawmen and insulting them based on their looks. Oh… wait…

I love how you think refuting the “arguments” against Sarkeesian hasn’t been done 39853860 times already.

These guys are critical of Sarkeesian and her supporters, so therefore they MUST be evil rapist misogynist stupid-heads

Weren’t you just complaining about straw men? Like, wasn’t that literally your first comment on this thread?

I’m sure this will go just as well as the Misandry in Video Games series.

And when it doesn’t, that itself will be misandry.

theatrical release

Oh lord, do they really think Anita Sarkeesian is a big enough deal to warrant a theatrical release debunking her? They really don’t ever stick their heads out of their echo chambers, do they?

…Connection to reality is not strong with this one.
…Maybe that’s part of the issue-we have a lot of people who’ve mentally inhabited their games for so long that any criticism of said games reads as an attack on their self-concept.

…O.o…Wow, there but for the grace of dog go I…I’m glad I got disciplined about not letting myself game all freaking day.

Boring. Post sarcastic message, post image of video game character.

Try changing it up a bit; maybe if you can be just a tad more interesting, you can avoid the mod-hammer a little longer.

blahlistic (@blahlistic)

You wouldn’t see the sniper coming, silly.

The sniper doesn’t so much come, as they sit somewhere, as still and invisibly as possible, awake for several days.
Waiting.
Not in video games, though, because that would not be entertaining at all.

Very good factual point, blahlistic. But just saying “you wouldn’t see the sniper” didn’t seem quite ominous enough.

Sorry, all caught up now. I get why Shiranui is so mad about people like Anita Sarkeesian: he’s afraid they’re going to take away his big-titted, barely-dressed, tough-but-pretty vidya game characters.

As for their Patreon page, did you see that both of these guys are “published” authors? One is real mad about anti-porn feminists, and the other wants you to know that Traditional White Men will save us from the apocalypse. LOL forever.

Please tell me that snipers still take breaks for breakfast! Second breakfast? Elevensies? Tea?

You know, I really hope that this is just “Ha, ha, I’ll pick a perfect example of misogyny and over-sexualization of women in video games and troll people by pretending to be her! That will make them angry! Muahaha!” kind of troll.

Because if he’s really convinced that this character isn’t a “perfect” example of what the tropes against women in video games are about?
Well, that’s just sad.

I’m a trained kunoichi, she’s a sniper. It would not be that hard.

Meh, I think that “trained kunoichi” is going to be taken out by a banhammer soon.

@Contrapangloss – Silly Bilbo! That’s why Hobbits don’t get to be snipers! Now, now! Don’t you fret your sweet little head about it, you have big, strong Men to protect you! Just go and warm your sweet, little, err… I mean big feet by the stove and whip us up some pies! It’s not mishobbitry, it’s evopsych. After all, Hobbits are small and soft and weak, and have never, ever, in the history of Middle Earth done anything of note.
