VidCon Video Reveals Anita Sarkeesian Didn’t Believe YouTubers Harassed Her
Anita Sarkeesian VidCon
(Last Updated On: July 2, 2017)

Part of the fallout from the VidCon 2017 controversy involving Anita Sarkeesian directly addressing fellow YouTuber Sargon of Akkad and calling him a “garbage human” involved the VidCon organizers latching onto the controversy, apologizing to Sarkeesian, and chastising Sargon and others who showed up at her panel where he was verbally harassed.

Prior to the VidCon verdict, Sarkeesian made a post on the Feminist Frequency website [backup], claiming in the blog entry that Sargon and the other YouTubers were harassers, and showed up at VidCon 2017 to intimidate her and others. Well, in a video from VidCon 2016, just a year prior, Sarkeesian actually stated that these YouTubers weren’t actually harassers.

In the blog post regarding the VidCon incident, Sarkeesian wrote…

“Carl [Benjamin, Sargon of Akkad] is a man who literally profits from harassing me and other women: he makes over $5,000 a month on Patreon for creating YouTube videos that mock, insult and discredit myself and other women online, and he’s not alone. He is one of several YouTubers who profit from the cottage industry of online harassment and antifeminism […]

 

“[…] But let me make something very clear: When you have a history of harassing someone for years, and you show up in the front row at their panel with a camera and an entourage, that is not an act of good faith, to put it mildly. That is itself an act of harassment and intimidation.”

Prince Asbel cut together a video revealing that Sargon of Akkad has never endorsed harassment, and that he has always been against harassment, and even advised his users to contact the FBI if they knew someone who was harassing Sarkeesian. Absel’s video also features segments from an hour long VidCon 2016 panel where Sarkeesian blatantly states that simply making videos critical of her and other feminists was not actually harassment.

According to Sarkeesian in the 2016 panel — at around the 55 minute mark — she in some ways absolved the YouTubers themselves from being harassers, mentioning that their words aren’t actual harassment, but their followers are…

“The problem is that you make a video on YouTube and it’s not harassment, it’s just ‘this is my opinion about how this bitch is horrible.’ […] And so what happens is that maybe the content, maybe the words in the actual video are not necessarily inciting [air quotes] harassment, but they know that they have followers that are then going to come after me on all of my networks because of that video.”

Sarkeesian also goes on to explain the difference between breaking the law regarding sending threats and simply saying something that qualifies as harassment, stating…

“Breaking the law is someone saying ‘I’m going to kill you.’ [saying] ‘Someone should kill you’ is not breaking the law but it’s still harassment, right. That is the stuff that is the most common and frequent – we can’t define online harassment based on what is legal currently.”

Earlier in the panel, however, she made comments about her own role as an oppressor. You can watch the panel in full thanks to YouTuber Paul Roth.

Regarding the VidCon 2017 incident, Sarkeesian rounded out her blog piece by claiming that she was powerful and would be using her power to change the world, where she wrote…

“You’re damn right I’m powerful. After everything I’ve been put through by Carl and other men just like him, I’m still powerful enough to go out there and try to change it.”

Hence, this ties into her ultimate goal of not just discussing video games but helping to move the conversation of social justice, intersectionality and feminism into the broader sociopolitical spectrum beyond pop-culture, because it’s not just about video games. She stated…

“For me, the big picture has always been culture change, and pop culture was just a vehicle and a medium to which cultural change can happen or it can be influenced by; so it’s not actually about video games. But it’s about video games, right?”

One interesting thing that stood out in the panel from last year is that according to Sarkeesian, even she’s not immune to harboring some measure of oppression over others due to her “white privilege”, where she stated in the VidCon 2016 panel…

“Another thing is that I get accused of being white by people who want to put me into that box. And I have an incredible amount of white privilege, but my ethnicity – my race is complicated to me.[…] I oftentimes feel these markers are used to discredit me. […]

 

So I struggled with that little bit in how we go after groups, and how the conversation around intersectionality is, and how intersectionality is both oppression and privilege, and how those work together.”

It’s interesting how Sarkeesian just a year later changes the definition of harassment in order to get VidCon to side with her about the comments she made about Sargon of Akkad at the VidCon 2017 panel. One must question if perhaps it was her “white privilege” that allowed the chips to fall down in her favor?

    Wanted to comment on this sooner but it wouldn’t show the comments.

    I think the fact she contradicts herself (on top of constantly jumping to conclusions) really highlights how full of shit she is. We all knew that, though.

    I’m still seeing mainstream reporting her as the victim, and bashing GamerGate as being extremist bullies. F**king liars.

    I’ve been thinking about how Soros likes to bet on societies collapsing. People think that’s a conspiracy theory, but it’s really quite simple. When you have a lot of money, it’s not hard to collapse societies.

    He just pumps money into assholes with extremist/radical ideas (eg. Sasquatch), and bribes them into high positions that get them widespread attention (eg. using the mainstream media, or academia), effectively giving them a voice that they would never have otherwise.

    People like Sarquasar don’t care about the consequences of their actions. They get paid a fortune, get special attention, and special powers. It’s all pluses to them, especially if they previously led meaningless lives. Soros himself has said he doesn’t care about the consequences of his actions either.

    It’s already been proven that he pumps money into SJWs, feminists, racial hatred and pro-refugee groups. Notice how these are all major sources of conflicts in Western society right now? I think I’ve said all this before, though.

    I had some other more interesting thoughts about this, but forgot already. I should write stuff down more often.

      I’ve never viewed them because:
      1. I know they’re full of shit.
      2. I don’t need someone to tell me how to think.
      3. I really can’t stand looking at her.
      4. Even if I watched them, it’s not an open discussion because she blocks all criticism. So what’s the point?

      She has weird mouth/cheeks that I find scammer women tend to have. Laci Green and another scammer girl I personally knew have the same kind of smile/mouth.

      They seem to belong to a type of woman that is good at putting on a performance and manipulating people, and are quick to backstab people if it’ll benefit them. I wonder if the mouth shape becomes like that because they’re always faking smiles.

      • Melinda Pacificar

        Actually Laci has changed her views. Also Lacy has a different personality and style compared to Anita. I could not imagine Laci treating Booge the way Anita did.

        • ThyPancakeConsumed

          Actions speaks louder than words. Her words and actions so far has been mostly anti-men. Instead saying she has changed, face it she hasn’t done anything to PROVE it. Yet.

        • Actually Laci has changed her views.

          Actions speak louder than words.

          She’s spent the last few years advocating for extremely misandrist crap. And so far she’s done absolutely nothing to prove that she’s changed.

          Let’s not roll out the red carpet and welcome her into the Anti-SJW religion just yet.

      • jlenoconel

        Anita’s videos are are fucking bullshit. She whines about stuff like Ms Pacman being a Ms Male Character without taking into consideration graphical limitations during that time. Even if it were a “Ms Male Character,” who fucking cares?

          • ummm…

            shut up. again another fool. what do you have against gays, trans and brown skin. your type always loses. thats why you are where you are.

          • He doesn’t have anything against gays, trans and brown people.

            It’s actually gays, trans and brown people who have a massive problem with heterosexuals, men and white people.

          • ummm…

            lets be adults. the alt right is being fueled by some cultural conservative and many times theological interests – and the progressives are busy calling everyone a bigot and attacking our principles in extreme ways in the name of “equality”.

            You cheerleading for one side isnt helping. its about looking at the issues, and its about respecting others. try it some time.

        • ummm…

          this is really regressive. This sort of imagery under an article like this shouldnt put off any sjw with curiousity, if they are genuine, but it certainly runs the risk of it. The author spent a great deal of time writing a well reasoned and thoughtful article to inform, and you could possibly turn people away from the cause because of this stuff. THere is not context here. This isn’t a comedy show. This isn’t a dialogue. Its an image that to some may be too much, and discredits all of us. Keep this in the right venue. You dont have to tar us all with this stuff. If we are to make headway, then we have to be BETTER than the opposition.

          • Grumphy

            And people like you are just proving Anitas point and helping her with this immature crap.

          • WreckTom

            Anita has no point.

            She exploded gratuitously in front of thousand of people during her own panel.

            People who had no idea what was going on and were actually there to hear her talk about women in gaming were completely confused, some got up and left.

            She made a fucking fool out of herself once again, and every PC publication is eating it up.

            You want to namedrop maturity. Go put yourself in the shoes of someone who is alien to their kiddy drama and watch the video of her wrecked panel again.

            How is that an example of maturity? I’ve seen comics bomb on stage with more class.

            Real professionals do not acknowledge the presence of their dissidents when public speaking, they lead (LEAD, LEADING, LEADERS) their panels with confidence, poise, and especially without any outside influence.

            People like Benjamin want attention, Anita wants attention. She gave him a million more soapboxes to stand on, she couldn’t LEAD her own panel, she wrecked her own panel so she could victimize herself later and the zines are eating it up for good posturing.

            Meanwhile, millions of people (trainers, teachers, presenters, public speakers) are talking publicly in front of an audience every minute of every day in politically, socially, and racially charged situations and they keep their professionalism intact in front of their dissidents.

            Maturity…..I’m sorry what?

            Children like her are a liability to their cause.

          • Grumphy

            And immature posts like yours are a liability to deconstructing Anita.
            You are actually acting like Anita now, which reeeeeealy isn’t helping.

          • WreckTom

            I don’t want to deconstruct anyone, I let them do it themselves.

            On another note, “a liability to deconstructing Anita” would mean posts like mine make it harder to discredit her, but then you say I’m acting like her in a derogatory manner.

            You are either very young and bounce my own words back to me in classic “liability-shmiability” style, or english is not your first language.

            Either way, you’re not making a point, and seem very confused.

          • Grumphy

            “Either way, you’re not making a point, and seem very confused.”

            Or you’re abit lacking in your reading comprehension. 🙂
            You are acting like Anita as in ranting and generally acting like an immature twat.
            Seriously, take a good look at your posts and ponder how this is helping anyone apart from making you look like a misogynistic twat?
            I really can’t stand Anita, but people like you are just as bad as her.

          • WreckTom

            I would like to know how pointing out the lack of professionalism of one individual makes me look like a misogynistic twat?

          • Grumphy

            Sorry, I assumed you were the thread starter (maga 4ever) since you replied to my post to him, my mistake.
            So to sum up, he’s the twat, not you. 🙂

          • ummm…

            how did you point out that lack of professionalism? by acting like a complete fool?

          • ummm…

            im sorry are you defending MAGA? what exactly is your point?

          • ummm…

            as a moderate liberal not only do we have to clarify our position and our humanity to the alt right, the establishment on both sides, and the sjw/rad left, but now we have to also deal with fools like this that tar our cause. It is quite possible that this person is a rad fem or something trying to sabotage us.

          • as a moderate liberal

            No wonder you got so triggered and upset by the images.

            And don’t bother with the “neutral” or “moderate” act, because based on some of the faeces you’ve spewed here, it’s blatantly obvious that you’re an SJW.

          • ummm…

            ok ill play. where did i say anything that would classify me as an sjw, an amorphous term. I dont think you can read correctly.

          • ummm…

            1) you dont want to deconstruct anyone? So how do you understand her argument if you dont deconstruct its parts? Do you know what the word means? Fool.
            2) Yes, your post is as empty as hers. It is reactionary and lacks and true intellectuality. It serves no purpose but to lash out like a baby in a crib, and with that you tar us all with your immaturity. YOU ARE HURTING MEN. When they tar mens rights they use fools like you to prove it.

            you are so so so so so so misguided. you dont even have a cogent response. dont talk about age because you are probably 12.

          • WreckTom

            My point was easy to make out in the first post.

            Sorry if it went over your head. It’s also awkward to call the post “reactionary” when scrolling down this thread reveals you have responded to virtually everyone with frothing-at-the-mouth type posts riddled with typos and poor grammar.

            Just look at your first response :

            “It is reactionary and lacks and true intellectuality”
            “and with that you tar us all”
            “When they tar mens rights”

            “and lacks and”
            “you tar us all”
            “When they tar”

            Go read a book before you rant about the meaning of words and intellect. You have thanked someone for backing you up in a comments thread. How weak are you?

          • ummm…

            go f yourself. i was responding to one guy who posts things that tars our cause and you defend him. seriously, go f yourself.

          • WreckTom

            1. I’m not defending anyone, I responded to grumphy. I don’t give a shit who Maga is or what he does, and he doesn’t give a shit who I am and what I do. We don’t know eachother, don’t plan to, and sleep real well. I actually had to search “maga” in the page to have the slightest clue what you’re talking about.

            2. You’re making this into a us vs them situation, perfectly embodying the mentality that created this mess in the first place.

            3. Tar is a viscous black liquid. It’s not a verb. No one “tars” anything, ever.

            4. You are reeling yourself up past comfortable levels.

            5. Everyone seems to need a cause these days so they can grandstand on social media. It’s a sign of the times. People are too weak minded to think on their own terms, as individuals, they need peer validation more than ever. This is why you think I’m “defending” someone, despite me never interacting with them in any capacity, and is why you thanked someone for “having your back” despite that person being a complete stranger to you. You felt reinforced in your convictions by words typed over fiber optics by someone you have never met, will never meet, and know nothing about. You need reinforcement from every and all sources. I don’t. I’m an individual, I’m not part of an ideological team, group, tribe, gang or anything. I don’t use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of that pathetic shit. I exist and think on my own terms and I recommend it to everyone.

            Have a nice day.

          • ummm…

            you have never heard of the word “tars”. you dont know what “mag” is. you think my opposition to MAGA’s tactics makes me a reactionary. You are full of poop, and blissfully ignorant. I could be wrong, but i doubt it. have a nice life. no reason why I shouldn’t wish that upon you. I’d ask you to stop bsing yourself and other tho.

            thats what trump has allowed americans to do. to just act like a complete fool.. im not against trump because im a moderate liberal. im against him because of his words and actions – and i think a lot of americans without the tools to engage – or selling themselves to the devil for political expediency – have latched on to this short term political validation to act like complete utter fools. They think they are winning, but dont realize that they are still losing – because they have no grasp of history and no ethic.

        • ummm…

          this is really regressive. This sort of imagery under an article like this shouldnt put off any sjw with curiousity, if they are genuine, but it certainly runs the risk of it. The author spent a great deal of time writing a well reasoned and thoughtful article to inform, and you could possibly turn people away from the cause because of this stuff. THere is not context here. This isn’t a comedy show. This isn’t a dialogue. Its an image that to some may be too much, and discredits all of us. Keep this in the right venue. You dont have to tar us all with this stuff. If we are to make headway, then we have to be BETTER than the opposition.

    Sigh… we could have a video of her eating babies and they would still side with her. How I wish we could just ignore her. She was already getting close to irrelavancy until the whole vidcon thing.

    • Grust

      She still is. This is her just being desperate.

    • Disqusted

      If there was an actual video of her eating babies, she would still spin herself as the victim. “The babies made me do it!” or “It’s a photoshop!”

      And yeah, people would still believe her. “I’m sorry those babies offended you in the larger context of things. They should have known their presence would make you hungry.”

      That’s partly why I wish Sargon had not done what he did. I’m glad her hypocrisy was shown, but still.

    Just going to fix that Anita quote to better reflect reality:

    “[S]He is one of several YouTubers who profit from the cottage industry of online [“]harassment[“] and antifeminism”

    So I guess there are as many forms of harassment as there are Tumblr genders? Is harassment fluid? How can not being harassed suddenly turn into being harassed by someone who isn’t even interacting with you? How can a YouTuber like Sargon not be harassing you but his followers are harassing you, but as soon as you’re in the same room as Sargon he’s harassing you?

    So I struggled with that little bit in how we go after groups, and how the conversation around intersectionality is, and how intersectionality is both oppression and privilege, and how those work together.

    And if sentences like that don’t convince you college is a scam, I don’t know what will.
