Forums: Index > Game Discussion > Anita Sarkeesian working for EA...
Note: This topic has been unedited for 2561 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not continue it unless it really needs a response.

So far she's working with the crew of Mirrors Edge [1]; but DA:I has a full year left before it's release. I hesitate to think she'll be excluded from Bioware, considering the Tallis debacle; I'm sure she and Felicia Day will quickly become bosom buddies. For those in the know, have better access to events, or what have you; I'd like to be made aware if she so much as sneezes in the general direction of Bioware.

Anita Who? Besides, EA is a big place. All over the world. Chances this one individual will work on Dragon Age are as slim as Sten embracing a casual friday for the Antaam. Henio0 (talk) 08:00, July 4, 2013 (UTC)

Ugh... I think it's safe to say she will do. I know Gaider has tried to shove himself up her arse and vice versa so yeah.... yay... I know Gaider isn't in charge or anything but I'm sure he'd beg and beg his bosses to let the feminazi have some involvement on the game and all of Gaiders fanclub would probably get pretty vocal too. (DDragonfly1990 (talk) 10:17, July 4, 2013 (UTC))

The term is "a feminist", not "the feminazi". Working for equal rights for women is not the equivalent of a non-human entity murdering millions of people. -Sophia (talk) 11:46, July 4, 2013 (UTC)
Eh, her Feminism is arguably a very sex negative feminism, and the typical name for that variety is "Feminazi" so...he's not wrong in this case. Also her views on tropes against women can sometimes come off as exceptionally heavy handed, though people have said the same about Gaider, I feel she's just a little bit more heavy about it. That said, I don't think she'd have a positive influence on DA, she'll make the themes that are present in the game more pronounced, when it already seems to be pretty heavy. Konous (talk) 12:06, July 4, 2013 (UTC)
I'm curious as to how to know that Gaider has tried to "shove himself up her arse" source? Or just typical I hate Gaider attitude. I'm not a big fan of tropes vs. women, frankly i find her work to be the equivalent of screaming "that's racist" whenever a person of color in a movie does something stereotypical. Having said that we have no idea what she will do/if she's even involved in DA in any form so perhaps we should all wait before we put our collective "screw that bitch" caps on. Lord knows this fandom has taken enough heat for attacking female bioware employees (the Jennifer Helper attacks stand out as one of the most disappointing actions in DA fandoms short history)--Tabris.the.great (talk) 13:18, July 4, 2013 (UTC)
Now I'm curious, Tabris, can you link me something to those events or inform me and others of the details of that? I'm just not as familiar with all the DA history. Konous (talk) 13:41, July 4, 2013 (UTC)
http://kotaku.com/5886674/bioware-writer-describes-her-gaming-tastes-angry-gamers-call-her-a-cancer. Long story short Miss Hepler said she wished games had a skip button for combat so she could enjoy the story, fans reacted by referring to her as a cancer that's killing bioware as well as attacks about her physical appearance. Make of her opinion what you will but the vile response she received was embarrassing. To be clear I'm not in any way saying any of this came from the DA wiki or any of it's members but it's the kind of crap that makes people think we are pretty much every negative stereotype or modern gaming. --Tabris.the.great (talk) 13:53, July 4, 2013 (UTC)

Quick question, who is this person and why exactly does her name make so many people's skin crawl? I've seen the name on r/gaming before, she sounds unpleasant, but the hivemind's pretty vague, something about Kickstarter? Why should I be worried about her attaching herself to DAI?

If yu use big words which the average feminist can't spell close enough to find in the dictionary, you too can be a figurehead of the feminist movement, and score big bucks doing it, especially if you can if you use those words to SMASH THE PATRIARCHY!!! In short, she's limited in intellect, but used her trope self to prostitute her trope retardism to people who usually don't have any interest in real gaming, you know, what gamers play. Real games, which actual gamers play, MUST change, so casual who cares gamers, can play and enjoy, and then call themselves gamers... you know the broads I'm speaking of, the sexy chicks who wear nothing but console controllers to cover their naughties...
Anyhow, this TWAT, cyber begged and scored herself some $160k to start a game critique BS, took her forever to put out the first part [2], and nearly as long to put out the second part [3]. Shadizar666 (Ruck Rules) 05:01, July 6, 2013 (UTC)
