Wow. Anita Sarkeesian is even more devious than I thought. Who knew she was single-handedly standing in the way of a glorious future free of wars and from the influence of sexy real-world females being all sexy and stuff.
This little exchange took place in the Koataku in Action subreddit, Reddit’s main hangout for GamerGaters; I suppose we should give the regulars there credit for downvoting marlospkm’s comment down to zero.
While his comment is just a teensy bit over-the-top, the self-described “red piller” marlospkm (who seems to be sincere) is hardly the only guy obsessed with the allegedly liberating power (for men) of “virtual sex” and/or sexbots. Indeed, this was a major theme of The Misandry Bubble, a weird online manifesto that’s been influential amongst the sorts of guys I write about on this blog; check the archives here for many more examples.
Oh, and he’s not the only guy convinced that women today oppress men with their sexiness. marlospkm, meet Warren Farrell.

They’d whine about having to do proper maintenance on their sexbots, or about the infection they got after not properly cleaning it. Then they’d say women are just biologically programmed to be better at cleaning sexbots than men, and so should be made to do so, but then they’d get terrified of women spermjacking them through their robots…
I’ll admit that at this point I do think anyone who supports GG is an ass. Near the start, or even for a few months, I thought most were assholes but maybe some people were just not informed. The more I learned about it plus just reading ANY place that GG hangs out at is enough for me to feel comfortable saying they are pretty much all asses. Like, they’re supporting a hate movement.
At the end of the day, even if some people aren’t asses I don’t think me saying so will matter to anyone a whole lot.
