Anita And Violence Against Teh Wymynz!

The feminist Jack Thompson, Anita Sarkeesian, has released yet another insipid video in her “Tropes Vs. Women” series. This time, she’s whining about teh ebils of sexual objectification and teh violence against teh wymynz in vidya gaymez:

Isn’t it interesting that, as evidence that video games promote violence against women, Anita uses games such as Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row as examples, games where the protagonists are criminals who routinely engages in illegal activity such as murder? Because a game that allows you to maul down cops, hijack cars, and use said cars to run over hordes of pedestrians isn’t that shocking, but the moment you start killing hookers whom you solicited for sex, well, that's when the game crosses the line for Anita. That’s simply too much!

And of course she argues that video games promote violence and sexual objectification. Because we never heard that argument before! (Like I said: feminist Jack Thompson!)
