It’s been a while since Intel announced their $300 million Tech Diversity Drive with the likes of Feminist Frequency as one of their partners. The Same Feminist Frequency that uses games to their own personal agenda,provides inaccurate information and upsets a lot of gamers. They look at how woman are used as sex objects, how useless females are portrayed in games, this includes real female gamers that play the games and AI within games.
I ask this question, does Feminist Frequency stand for Diversity, Equality and not just a man hating group, that believes men are the reason for everything that is bad within games and in this world.
As being a gaming website and working for a gaming website that enjoys games, strives for equality and diversity, this for me was a huge no no,some may disagree some might even agree, but you are all welcome to an opinion this is mine, and does not represent Invision Game Community’s opinion as a whole.
First lets look at how ‘Anita Sarcasm’ portrays ‘Hitman Absolution’ published by Square Enix and developered by IO Interactive.
The information below has been taken from http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/9.857622-Anita-Sarkeesian-Hitman-Absolution-Epic-Fail
When a user points out, what is clearly wrong, with what Anita Sarcasm is doing in Hitman Absolution;
First lets read what Anita I’m a lying vagina has to say about this great game,
“The player cannot help but treat these female bodies as things to be acted upon, because they were designed, constructed and placed in the environment for that singular purpose. Players are meant to derive a perverse pleasure from desecrating the bodies of unsuspecting virtual female characters.”
Now this is what the user points out
Anita then shows a clip of Hitman Absolution, depicting the player character knocking out and dragging the bodies of female strippers around the floor.
While this is happening, the player score counter in the top corner of the screen is actually GOING DOWN.
Hitman Absolution doesn’t “implicitly encourage” killing or knocking out civilians, female or otherwise. It actually discourages that kind of behaviour, by actively penalizing the player for it.
So we end up with a case of Anita using video footage that proves wrong the very point she’s making at the time.
Furthermore, only an idiot player is going to interfere with the strippers anyway, as they’re incredibly easy to sneak past, and they only hurt your score if you try interacting with them in any way.
Not only this, but she suggests that the player “cannot help” but perform obscene acts on female NPCs.
I would link the actual video,but don’t wish to support there Google absence account
Moving on to a second area which was recently published one by Feminist Frequency, with some special guest appearing in the video and supporting what is said in the video it is called: 25 Invisible Benefits of Gaming While Male.
Its a kick in the teeth for female gamers, makes them look and feel like, to put it bluntly sex objects, useless, and ignored.
I will not embed the video but you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E47-FMmMLy0
Not longer after Anita Sarcasm Released her video with her star friends, real gamer girls released their own video which contradicts this authenticity of Anita’s Sarcasms Claims. The video does exactly what we should expect from gamer girls, strong independent females that own their virtual environment and control their gaming experience.
This can be seen here: http://youtu.be/6d6nRUBKdB4
This video was ignored by ‘Feminist Frequency’ even though the video was created by Females, pointing out facts, that they clearly see as an advantage of being a Female Gamer. You would if thought a site that pushes for Females would post this video and endorse it, but they do not.
Ignorance is Bliss I believe is the term Feminist Frequency likes to portray
Invision reached out to Feminist Frequency and well as Intel for a comment, to Feminist Frequency, it was a simple why do they feel Intel have made the right choice when your wall and videos is all about Man hate and not for equal right, diversity and equality.
For Intel we sent them videos, images from Feminist Frequency Twitter wall and many other links to show why Intel have made a bad choice to use Feminist Frequency as a partner in Diversity and asked them to comment.
But we where ignored, we gave them both the opportunity before I wrote this article, so its tough shit now, its out, take it or leave it, you made your bed now lie in it. Same comes for me, I wrote this article and I will take shit for it, from there fans, but hey opinion is an opinion and we are entitled to it.
But this is not the only time they have ignored users, they even ignored us when we asked them,
My Personal Opinion
Intel needs to re look at who they wish to support, when it comes to diversity and equal rights within the tech world/gaming world, as its very clear Anita Sarcasm and her Fem vaginas are out for something completely different.
I reckon they never got back to us, as I had a Penis with a pair of Massive Balls, and not huge boobs and a Vagina, or it was simply not something they could answer as it was the truth or it took a huge Cleveland steamer on their agenda.
Even more Links to read below,mull over them all, click on the images, am I right or wrong, it’s my opinion at the end of the day, make me wrong.
Hope you enjoyed my Opinion piece… if not like I care.
