First of, I'm not a fan of her work, as she falls into the typical feminist cliché of invoking things like "the patriarchy," "misogyny," and "objectification." She egregiously misuses those words in my opinion.

They're just zombie terms, words that people can brainlessly utter to shut down discussion. Like "mansplaining."

If a supposed 'expert' or 'commentator' uses a term like 'Patriarchy' as if it actually applied to anything in mainstream Western culture in the last 30 years, you know you've got yourself an outright fraud who isn't going to say anything worth hearing.

As for her genuine supporters, I wonder what will happen if and when she decides to abruptly stop doing tropes vs. women...actually, I already know, you already know: They'll finger us criticisers saying that this is "all your fault," even when our criticisms (for the most part) are quite valid.

Even though that shouldn't be an excuse.  1.  As TAA already explained, if you voice an opinion on the internet, you will get flak for it.  Period, end of discussion.  Put on your (talking about Anita, not you) big girl pants and grow a thicker skin.  2.  Even then, I'd like to know how said criticism matters.  I mean, last I checked, she pulled a classic creationist move and disabled ratings, comments, statistics and (most likely) video responses as well.  So what?  Just knowing that criticism will exist makes her sad in the pants?  Lady, I believe that anarchyinyourhead bloke, Dale Everett said it best:  If you can't stand the anarchy, get off the fucking internet.

...She's STILL going on about this one trope?

What makes you think she has any others?

Even if she has others, why should she change any time soon?  She's gotten gobs of cash and loads of media praise for what is now three poorly made, ineptly researched videos.  She probably thinks somebody will offer her a tenured professorship before the end.

The sad thing is that she's probably right...

Those kickstarters SERIOUSLY need to demand a refund. She can't even properly normalize her audio!

Okay, now I'm really not feeling sympathetic towards her or her defenders. Did she actually need people to fund these snorefests? Just a few seconds of listening to her almost puts me to sleep.

Wait a minute..isn't that available as an automated feature in just about all the packages you might want to use to make YouTube videos?  All you have to do is TURN IT ON?

It's not 100%, you have to make some adjustments yourself, but it's not hard!

I haven't sloughed my way through the whole video yet (just too much stupid for one sitting), but why is a female character with breasts furthering a female stereotype but a male character with at least a 4-pack isn't?
