Its a whole load of bull about nothing because those privileged people who are getting all upset over it, its like white guys getting upset of the n word or various other stuff.

The only people that should care about the chainmail bikini are:

1) Women
2) Women who wear them
3) People who draw/animate women in chainmail bikinis

However, everyone should get upset over people threatening violence on people who express their opinion, even if that opinion suggests all men want to see women in chainmail bikinis because women are objects blah blah blah, which obviously isn't true...think of the nipple chaff!

OP, I believe you have your aspersion dispenser set to "spray."

Regarding the topic, the people who threatened Anita ought to be tossed in jail, as they certainly committed a crime.

And while I do enjoy the chainmail bikini and pixel boobage here and there, I do not enjoy seeing or engaging in simulated violence against women. I tend not to play those kinds of games.

The exception: Quake and Unreal (in their more modern iterations) where everyone is equally violent right back if they're not on your team. (I'd usually just make all of my team members the female characters, and the bot team all male or alien... it just sat better with me.)

You insulted me, then proceeded to agree with my stance.

If it left a mark, then you are also easily contused. Cool

That's NOT how it actually works.
You're not paying attention to reality.

Furthermore, you're only proving my gifs accurate.

Well played.

But, no.... I was just wondering why the first sentence belonged.

Ah yes, a SJW then.

And I pay attention to reality. I know of women that work harder than any man just to put food on the table.

Making fun of crybaby neckbeards makes me a social justice warrior?
And here I was thinking it made me just "a bloke who makes fun of crybaby neckbeards"....

Most people of even slightly above-average intelligence find stupidity exasperating. I'm going to teach you a thing, right now.... if you don't like being generalized, don't generalize others.
Also, if you claim to be a "nice guy", yet you complain when a girl doesn't want to have sex with you.... you're NOT a nice guy. Nice guys just move on.

I haven't done thorough research, but I think the chainmail bikini was invented by Marvel Comics artist John Buscema around 1975. That was for the Red Sonja character in the Conan the Barbarian comic. The original Conan artist was Barry Windsor-Smith, a more tasteful Brit who drew Sonja this way. Note the utilitarian and plausible (if sort of unrealistically form-fitting) mail shirt.

When Windsor-Smith resigned and Buscema took over, Sonja transformed from being a sharp-eyed freebooter cutthroat woman, into more of a cheesecake babe warrioress. The invention of the chainmail bikini-- maybe?

By the way, Barry Windsor-Smith went on to make a lot of really dreamy, finely executed art. Here's one example.

For the record, I'd like to point out that Sarkeesian has repeatedly pointed out unfair stereotypes against men in games, too. I've heard her rail against the "hyper masculine protagonist" just as much as anything else.

Real feminists hate ALL sexism.... not just the sexism that damages themselves. That's why I find it pathetic and laughable that these neckbeards want to paint her and her supporters as female supremists.

Also, didn't Anita Sarkeesian go on a rant about how child support and alimony are unethical? Gee..... I wonder which side is wrong.

The Mittani is on a retweet spree on twitter with it.



Basically, a bunch of silly neckbeards got butthurt because people are listening to Anita Sarkeesian (who, by the way, is completely right on almost everything she says.... and, no, I'm not joking.... I'm sick of chainmail bikinis, too), and decided to dox her and harass her to the point where she had to move for fear of any of these idiot kids making good on their threats.
So, some things were said, and basically every basement-dwelling virgin with a blog and/or a YouTube channel that fancies himself a "journalist" seems to think she directly slandered them and "ruined their credibility"... which they never had to begin with.

Me, personally, if it didn't come from TMC or direct from a developer, I don't take it seriously, anyway.

And, for those of you who are on this crusade.... eff your feelings. You're an idiot. Quit terrorizing women for just wanting you to stop being a sexist prick, and also, stop being a sexist prick. Your stupid pixel boobs are no cause for IRL threats of death and violence.

I too agree with most of what she says.

the only legit criticism is that she took all that money and stopped producing ANY new content. Then got re-listed as a charity for tax purposes. Then continued to not release ANYTHING despite asking for donations toward a nonspecific "project".

Soooo yeah. Is she right?

Duh.


Is she abusing the trust people invested in her?

Duh.


Should goons act outraged that she got doxed and death threats?
lol not unless they are being ~ironic~
