So, like PETA then, except a million times more defensible.

"One morbidly obese woman who was very active on dieting forums cursed my hideous appearance."
She didn't murder anything, she just put her cat to sleep instead of taking it to the vet. And then she made a purse out of it because she wanted to keep her cat close.
Then she got a bajillion hatemails and made a book of like 1% of those hatemails.
Anita Skarkeesian's legacy lives on.
honestly, beyond the totally unearned sanctimony, i have absolutely no problem with this artist's work.
then again i don't have any problems with GMOs or factory farms either, so i could just be a psychopath. but hey! when I'm on death's door, feel free to wring my neck and make a fancy purse out of me -- i'll probably end up providing more genuine utility there than at least half of the people making death threats will with their entire lives.
I don't think she's protesting anything. She just points out the contradictions in critics' positions.
How strange! She should learn to be more proper so as not to upset me!
5 for evil. Attention-seeking whore breaks her still living "depressed" cat's neck and makes a handbag.
"When I broke my cat's neck and made her into a handbag I had no idea what I was getting myself into."
Seriously - her cat's DEPRESSION is the reason. How do you not see that as strange?
"Fido's acting a bit down lately, I think its about time to TWIST HIS FUCKING HEAD OFF."
Yeah that's how sane people deal with things.
I totally agree. She is a sick fuck and is clearly just a sociopath using art as an excuse. Animal abuse is horrid but abusing more to "send a message" is ridiculous. Think about what would happen if an "artist" did this to human beings because we do horrible shit to each other all the time.
"in 2012 she explained this was a made up story to raise attention for her opinion about the different threatment of pets compared to other animals. The cat was actually very ill and would die of its disease"
So yes, she is an "attention whore", but she didn't break the cat's neck because it was depressed. However, it is also disingenuous of her to say "oh, look at the hypocritical society how much hate mail they send me" when she went out of her way to give a stupid reason for killing her pet.
