Exciting new opportunity for Sarkeesian Effect backers to flush more $$ down the toilet! (Also, funny video)

There’s some great news for supporters of The Sarkeesian Effect, the seemingly random collection of badly filmed interviews with assorted people who dislike Anita Sarkeesian that is allegedly being edited into a film of some kind!

In a new video, Jordan Owen — the hairier of the two Sarkeesian Effect impresarios — has announced an amazing new opt-out opportunity for the alleged film’s backers to donate money to him and his pal (then enemy, then pal again) Davis Aurini.

Owen reports that, even though they’re supposedly already done filming their alleged film, the two have somehow managed to work out a way to do some more filming “that we didn’t think that we’d be able to do but it’s really going to tie the movie together,” much like the non-big Lebowski’s famously peed-on rug, I guess.

Now, Owen won’t provide any details — which, he suggests, might have something vaguely to do with the Honey Badgers’ recent escapade in Calgary? — but apparently it is a quite exciting filming opportunity and it somehow requires another month’s worth of funding for the alleged film, and unless the project’s backers specifically opt out by the end of the month they’re going to get charged for it!

It’s all very ethical.

In the video, Owen also invites supporters to check out the amazingly professional web site they have up for their amazing film at TheSarkeesianEffect.com. I would also highly recommend that you check it out; it is in every way up to the exacting standards the two are known for.

And before I forget, I’d like to mention some great news for fans of the unintentional comedy that the Sarkeesian Effect duo provide almost every time they open their mouths.

A couple of Sarkeesian Effect mockers — Andrew Todd from badassdigest.com and @kav_p from Twitter — have come into the possession of puppets that, as Kav P puts it, look “startlingly similar” to the Sarkeesian Effect duo. They plan to produce a series of short videos starring said puppets.

Here’s the theme song for the series, which they call MRAsterpiece Theater. You may notice that despite costing nothing to anyone but the two people who made it, this video somehow manages to look and sound a lot more professional than anything the actual Sarkeesian Effect dudes have produced so far.

In their defense, I think they’re talking about when they started playing online and not talking about when they actually started video games, especially since we’re talking about online harassment.

Still weaksauce. I’ve been playing games online since the late 90’s.

I’ve been playing online for…less than a year. This is because online gaming is expensive. You need a good internet connection with either a decent PC rig or a console membership.

But it really doesn’t matter how long they’ve been playing online. We shouldn’t try to dismiss their opinions on games just because they haven’t been playing them as long as we have. They’re still a gamer. They’ve likely just not really taken into account that every other game is about a white guy saving the day with guns and explosions and that it’s boooorrriiiiinnng playing essentially the same game every time.

I mean, can we at least get a black guy or woman saving the day with guns and explosions for once? That’s, like, literally the minimum amount of change we want.

I’ve been playing games online for a long time, since about 2004 or so.

For what it’s worth, I don’t think anyone is trying to dismiss 4th’s opinion based on how long they’ve been playing, but shooting down that faulty appeal to authority. Playing online games since 2004 is a) not “a really long time”, like is being claimed, b) not that impressive, because lots of people here have done the same, and c) no reason to ignore the recent discussions about gender and gaming.

Can’t speak for anyone else, but yeah, I was definitely being sarcastic. Basically, I posted something Gamergaters love to post, but swapped the genders.

Sorry, I forget these things aren’t always obvious.

Jackie has a wonderful point, but this is what I was going for too.

I’ve seen a lot of those types go for the “I’ve obviously been playing games longer than you silly feeemales!”, and nine times out of ten, I’ve been gaming way longer than they have. : /

It’s kinda really long time for me. 10 years is a little under half my life. I just happened to have started gaming, or playing around at game at least, when I was a very young age because my mom was a gamer. Hell, I may have been playing games earlier than that, but that was when I started picking up the control and trying to finish the level like my mom did or, more accurately, when I started shooting ducks with the light ray gun on the screen because I’m cheaty.

So, in their experience, it’s a long time, especially if it a majority of their life. I’m pretty sure they are under twenty years old, maybe early twenties at the most, so I can see how that would be a long time for them.

Also, they didn’t say it was when they started playing videogame, but online games. 2004 is when WoW came out and stuff, so they might be referring to that in particular, but there was Counter Strike, Toon Town (which was actually my first ever online game experience, it just so happened that low-speed dial-up sucks for that shit so I never got to play-it, play-it), Second Life, City of Heroes, Everquest II, GTA San Andreas, a Call of Duty game, Halo 2 I think. It was also around the time when consoles were able to go online for the first time too. I know my PS2 had a little internet attachment thing that I never used because we didn’t have an ethernet cord and also dial-up sucks.

But my post wasn’t concentrated on “we shouldn’t pick on them because they haven’t play as long as us”, it was about “they probably just haven’t notice how almost every game is the same because they might haven’t been playing as long as us.” So…

Having just started gaming doesn’t make you any less of a “real” gamer than anyone else, nor does it mean that your opinions and preferences about games are any less legitimate than anyone else.

It does, however, mean that you are probably less qualified to make big, sweeping assertions about gaming history.

Yes, maybe 45% of gamers are women but I’m pretty sure that includes all gamers, even people who play casual stuff like Farmville, Candy Crush or Wii Fit. The majority of gamers who play games like Call of Duty or Mortal Kombat are men and the games are designed to reflect that.

I ‘love’ how a game is a ‘casual’ game if it is imagined to appeal to women, regardless of actual game play, difficulty, or audience demographic.

I guess the fact that my high school computer club (all girls, because the boys wouldn’t let us in their ‘club’) hacked into the lab computers so we could install StarCraft and multiplayer over the LAN without logging into battle.net and having to deal with sever lag means that StarCraft is a ‘causal’ game for girly girls. This was 1998/9, btw. To be fair, Candy Crush does rhyme with Zerg Rush.

It also explains why I installed this farming mod for Skyrim! It isn’t because I play on legendary mode with several difficulty increasing mods that make the use of paralysis and damage health poisons almost mandatory at low levels, the best ingredients for which can be frustratingly rare so growing them yourself is a must, nooooooo, it’s so Skyrim would be more like Farmville, cause that’s the only kind of game a casual girly gamer can understand and appreciate. Duh!

I hate the argument that “Ugh, casual games aren’t real games!”

Like, who the fuck died and made you the Arbiter of Gaming? Who the fuck said YOU get to decide what is and isn’t a game?

What makes the games YOU enjoy any “better” than the games other people like and get enjoyment out of?

That’s nice, dear. How long have you been alive? Because I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman here who’s been playing computer games longer than that.

Do you think 4th will return soon? Or are they gone for a while now? IDK their pattern if they’ve been here before.

4th shows up, flings except emery, and poofs off for a bit in a cloud of unwashed socks, only to poof back on a different thread… At least, as near as I can tell.

^ And that seems to be the pattern of every troll that hangs around here. Once they get totally pwned by the commenters (just like 4th on this thread), they chicken out and show up in another thread.

At least, those that aren’t drive-bys or are banned for saying something horrific.

Only slightly related, but hilarious to me:

I’m playing FFX HD for PS3 and when leveling, you unlock magic improving stat nodes with “mana spheres”.

I sometimes wonder what these beezers expect to happen when they strut in here, declaiming and pontificating. “Oh, Mr. Manly McDudebro, thank you for enlightening us! We will go join the forces of meninism and forswear our foolish ways!” Then they get mocked and corrected, and flee in a bright green panic.

Lurk moar, guys, lurk and learn.
