This is amazing.
1. The dude with the whiskey and cigarette is trying VERY HARD. He wants to be indignant but he wants to be cool! “GRR, I’m mad but look at my Vampire: The Masquerade costume.”
2. “In one fell swoop the social justice warriors have silenced all dissenting voices and ushered in a new era of political correctness!” dude if people were actually silenced you wouldn’t be able to make this video/patreon without significant consequences instead of just me making fun of them.
3. “Anita Sarkeesian got almost $160,000 to producer her YouTube videos with no discernible increase in quality. But Jordan and I? We already make high quality YouTube videos.” my dudes you guys can’t even match video quality and audio levels across two different shots. you’re pointing a webcam at a low angle in a room with no special lighting? come on.
4. “Or is this a ruse perpetuated by a group of perpetual victims for their own fame, and glory, and financial benefit?” Look if you make a video saying this and don’t realize you sound exactly like the villain from Ghostbusters I don’t know what to tell you.
Anyway, these guys are making a bunch of money off this, which is bogus and insane. The irony is that people furious that Anita Sarkeesian “scammed” money lost no money on her videos, but are going to dump a bunch of cash on this crap. The video series they deserve I guess.

Video link removed because FUCK THESE GUYS. Like you said, this is a sham of epic proportions. They’re making an expose of their own paranoia and they want people to pay for it. “No discernible increase in quality”?? Go ahead and watch an old Sarkeesian clip and tell me the latest “Women vs Tropes” clip doesn’t look a million times better.
Saying this for the millionth time: no one has silenced you. Why do people who rail against “political correctness” (a twenty-year-old buzzword, by the way) always do so while pretending that their freedoms are being erased?
YOU GET TO SAY WHAT YOU WANT and we get to challenge you if you’re a jerk. That’s the American-fucking-way and it should be written on our currency (and no, it’s not “bullying” when we point out your behavior is repugnant). That you act this way while multi-billion-dollar corporations continue to court your every whim with masculine-fantasies on every screen in your house is the definition of petulance.Source: caseymalone
