Still, what did she need all $6,000 for?
$6,000? Are you talking about something other than her kickstarter? Because I was told her kickstarter made over $160,000.

I think $6k was her original goal.

Sounds about right.

Now this actually IS a bogus criticism of Sarkeesian:


As much as I hate Sarkeesian for her obvious lies (obvious to even a non-gamer like me), I think she SHOULD be using LP video footage to demonstrate how the game is meant to be played, as opposed to making her own footage pretending that (for example) you're "supposed" to kill prostitutes and play with their dead bodies when the game actually discourages you from doing that! And it's clearly Fair Use anyway.

It's considered good etiquite to give credit where due when you do that.  Not only did she not, there was this one girl who asked if she'd do that and Anita's firm basically flipped her the bird.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"

Agreed, but the claim is that she STOLE the footage. Not only is it blatantly obviously Fair Use, but under copyright law the footage is owned by the gaming company, not the producer of the LP video.

Libertarian Kane once again being awesome as fuck.

Great quote from the presentation:
"It really ticks me off when I hear leftists and statists talk about how the free market causes wealth inequality, the free market doesn't. The free market throughout history has allowed poor people to pull themselves up and has given people more socioeconomic ability to move up and down the socioeconomic ladder, up, than anything else in history.

Paul Krugman, who is a Keynesian economist par excellence, just wants to inflate like crazy, but yet he writes a column for the New York Times and it's called 'Conscience of a Liberal', because he loves poor people despite the fact that he's the guy that's killing them, but then he'll look at someone like me and say you hate the poor. I don't hate the poor, I hate the fact that they're poor."
—Glenn Jacobs
