Even if they eventually deliver some half-assed product this was hilarious.

Antifeminist gamers have already been scammed by another project:
http://www.gameranx.com/features/id/13224/article/the-mystery- and-fraud-of-tropes-vs-men-in-videogames/

Oddly enough, gamers don't get angry about these actual scams, which are directed at them.

Anita didn't scam anyone, though. Just putting the facts out there.

baleen
she's just guilty of being a sub-mediocre critic and a shoddy journalist. this entire thing is so ridiculous. it's bringing out the worst and stupidest in everybody.

Sudan no1
It's true. I wasn't a fan of her work before and it's still deeply flawed, but the response has been full-retard. PS: I'm not actually a SJW so I can use the r-word.

John Holmes Motherfucker
I'm going to say this every time it comes up.

I don't really have much of an opinion about Anita Sarkeesian as a critic, but I'm convinced that practically everyone who's complaining misunderstands her premise, and that's easy to do, especially on the internet, where there's rarely a distinction between criticism and trashing, either in perception or reality.

She's not saying what everybody thinks she's saying. She not using sexist tropes to say that a work is sexist. She's talking about the tropes themselves.



This article is key. You don't have to agree with it, but if you don't understand AnitaSarkeesian's work on its own terms, you don't understand it, period.

http://tinyurl.com/m2fabzs

>>There's a common trope of framing Sarkeesian's work as "cherry-picked", as she takes isolated examples from many games and presents them as a stream of misogyny in order to create the illusion that all of these games are entirely misogynist, the entire way through. That's a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is Sarkeesian is doing with TvsWVG, and what cultural criticism in general is. These are tropes - they're fragments of a whole. By definition they don't make up the entirety of a work of art by themselves, but are instead definable cultural touchstones which artists, writers, developers etc, can use when creating a fictional reality.

>>In other words, Anita Sarkeesian only presents sections of games as sexist because she's only talking about the sexist bits of games, and how, of the tropes developers choose to put in their games when designing for female characters, they frequently fall back on sexist ones. Seriously, she couldn't be clearer about this - in the introduction to the very first video she says:

>>"This series will include critical analysis of many beloved games and characters, but remember that it is both possible (and even necessary) to simultaneously enjoy media while also being critical of its more problematic or pernicious aspects."

Anita did scam the fuck out of lots of people more than once. Anyone still saying she didn't is either just choosing to stick their head in the sand and ignore the evidence, is a retarded white knight, or is a liar helping her further her career as a scam artist.

SolRo
She made a kickstarter to fund a video series.

It got funded. (overfunded, but that's not her fault)

She produced a video series.



I'm failing to see the scam here.

OxygenThief
Yeah what the fuck are you talking about, dairyqueenlatifah?

Well, you make a persuasive argument, but I prefer to think of myself as a simpering momma's boy who hates himself.

"SJW" is the dumbest term. It's about as good as describing something as "Hipster"

baleen
JHM: Sarkeesian goes a bit further than objectively pointing out genre tropes from a feminist perspective.
She will take a few minutes of gameplay out of a 30 hour game and come up with something like:
"The female body is thus a piece of flesh to be objectified and toyed with, the game encourages the user to abuse and denigrate the female form for their own pleasure."

One reviewer of her work watched 40 let's play videos of the scene in question, and not a single player beat the shit out of a stripper and dragged her body around. It's not that it doesn't happen, of course it does, but she is creating such a "trope" out of thin air. It would be like taking a few scenes of Patrick Swayze dragging Jennifer Grey around the dance floor, and drawing a misogynist rape fantasy from Dirty Dancing because Swayze is blatantly manipulating Grey's physical form in an aggressive manner for his own amusement.

But Dirty Dancing is a long movie with lots of context. To make that kind of assumption is to incriminate its fans in some way, just as cherry-picking mountains from mole hills and implying Rape Eyes and Male Gaze at every turn incriminates the game player, and I think that's why so many people are naturally angry at her. "What? I'm not a misogynist. I don't want to beat up strippers." And know what, they probably aren't and they probably don't! Of course people are going to respond angrily to a distortion of an activity that they love. That's the problem with the worst critics; lacking passion for what they criticise, they sit separate from it, looking for something to dissect to the point that it fits into their overall thesis. I had teachers like this in school, and it was not a pleasant experience.

Those who are threatened by women going on their boy's turf, or who feel that games are a release from their alienation, those are the guys who are going ballistic and making the threats, because they don't know how to express their insecurities in any other way. Most people are incapable of being critical of criticism, especially if the criticism is intellectually dishonest.

If you haven't read this. I urge it. Feminist criticism seems to be all about examining problematic aspects out of context, because if you condemn everything with sexist overtones in literature and art, what does that leave you? Feminist criticisim seems to be all about a reengineered relationship with culture, so that we can live in the world, and consume the images without being consumed by them.

There are reasons for the violent reaction other than stupidity or misogyny. People who are used to Cable News and internet rants are going to misinterpret Feminist frequency. I'd be more inclined to blame Anita for not adequately explaining this, if the violent reaction hadn't begin several months before the first video.

The hitman scene comes up again and again. One of these days I may go back and look at that, but i have no opinion. Some people think it's defensible, i'm not sure.

My point is that her message isn't that gaming is bad, gamers are bad, or even that particular games are bad. She's examining the tropes, people see the horrible images and think thats supposed to stand for the whole game.

>>"This series will include critical analysis of many beloved games and characters, but remember that it is both possible (and even necessary) to simultaneously enjoy media while also being critical of its more problematic or pernicious aspects."

You may not agree, and i may not agree, but there are a whole lot of things that people think she's saying that she's not saying, or at least I've never seen a real quote. Never seen her directly imply that games cause violence, or that people shouldn't enjoy games, and I've never seen her advocate censorship, or hate or anger against gamers, which is what nominal seems to think. People spend hours raging against the imaginary Anita Sarkeesian in their heads.

"That's the problem with the worst critics; lacking passion for what they criticise, they sit separate from it, looking for something to dissect to the point that it fits into their overall thesis." The typical undergraduate level paper, in a nutshell, which is basically what she does.

She dresses up a B+ Media Studies 101 level essay/powerpoint presentation that has no business being shown to anyone other than her professor/classmates. baleen already summed it up nicely with "this entire thing is so ridiculous. it's bringing out the worst and stupidest in everybody." which should have been the final thoughts anybody had on the subject 6 months ago (though here I am continuing it).

Xenocide
I'm still not sure how "Social Justice Warrior" is supposed to be an insult. The term sends the message, "wow, you care about people who are different from yourself and are willing to fight for them!"

You need to be a special kind of human failure to see this as a bad thing.

Nominal
How willfully obtuse do people have to be to not realize what baleen just spelled out?

She even cherry picks criticism against her. Checking out her official twitter page, roughly half of the negative tweets she gets amount to "People don't hate you because they're misogynist, they hate you because you're dishonest." A third of it amounts to "god you're dumb" or "shut up". Five percent is how she needs a good dicking. Less than that and you finally get to the lazy "get raped and die" comments which I guess she's counting as credible death threats, but I see that posted here at least half a dozen times every time a FOX news pundit says something off putting so I don't see how that's different.

Seriously go through all the FOX news clips here and count the number of gang rape wishes on Megyn Kelly and Ann Coulter. You can pass it off as generic internet hate trolling (which I would totally buy), but why does it suddenly become serious business when it happens to some feminist? An antagonizing feminist who uses the exact same misinformation punditry tactics as FOX news.

John Holmes Motherfucker
I'm aware that there have been rape threats at POE, and not just toward women on Fox news. There have been rape threats directed toward Boxxy, for example. I've occasionally commented about this, and I don't like it. So I guess this is sort of exactly the same thing, except that it's been going on in a thousand forums, every day, and some of the threats were sent directly to the targets, and made of pointing of letting the target know that the sender knew the names of her family members, and there were also the bomb threat, and the calls to zoe quinn's father saying "your daughter is a whore", and maybe 1000 angry you tube videos, and the evidence of an organized attempt to spread around hurtful gossip about someone. So I guess you're right, it's exactly the same.

Baleen was pretty articulate, but what he's said has been said literally hundreds and hundreds of times over the past couple of years. Ditto with the tweets. And I guess you missed that I addressed it.

My biggest problem with the critics isn't the threats, it's the primal compulsive need to prove every word of her mouth to be dishonest, because simply disagreeing with her validates her right to an opinion. They talk about all the kickstarter money she got, as if it was a plot, ignoring the fact that she only asked for 6 thousand. "She never told us what she did with money" they say, but they're not the ones who gave her the money. She has the contact information for the donors, maybe she told THEM. She's not accountable to you, bro.

So they find an old lecture and blast it all over youtube because they think it proves something. It doesn't. The second it came out that she'd left her home because of threats, they were coming up with idiotic theories about how she'd faked the tweets. Literally, the next second, you can see it all over the internet. And then, the idiotic fake evidence.

There are answers to all of it. But bringing that up again and again does nothing. When the violent messages began months before the first video, that's pretty good reason to suspect confirmation bias.

Nominal, it makes me a little sad to think of you going through comments searching for rape threats that you think will give you some validation that you're missing. It's okay, man. Just relax.

They're just youtube videos. Extremely BORING youtube videos. I can barely stand to watch them. I don't think it's the vicious attack you think it is, but if it was, that wouldn't really matter, either. She doesn't want to take your games away, and couldn't if she did. If you want to prove that gamers aren't dicks, you don't need to gather evidence in comments sections. Just don't be a dick.

Nobody's trying to take your games away, and if they were, I would be defending your games. Somebody IS trying to take away EVERYBODY'S right to peacefully express an unpopular opinion on the internet without being harassed. That's something worth dying for.

I was actually going to end this post with a death threat, just for fun. To make a point. But there are no innocent death threats.

Bobonne
Xenocide: Pretty much!

Though, to be more fair than I should be, some "SJWs" can be seriously dense assholes that attack anything that moves, which dilutes their messages and their overall goals, and often has the effect of pushing people that had no opinion on the subjects into associating their annoyance with "SJW" "extremist" language and campaigns with the oppressed minorities that the "SJWs" were trying to help in the first place.

That's a failing of the human beings that let an annoying, but not malignant, activist poison their opinion of the issues they represent, though.

I'd take well-meaning but overbearing or shrill over the genuine shitheads of the world any day. Even if I think Anita Sarkeesian makes some stupid points in her videogame theory videos, I'd take her, over the people that have made it their mission to attack her, in a second.

What's really going on here: the games industry is quickly moving beyond "gamers" (i.e. guys who look and act like this) and they're acting out and getting vicious and stupid because they can't handle it.

A political analogue might be the rise of the Tea Party, which is a direct reaction to the increasing number of nonwhite voters in American politics. They'll cause a ruckus for a bit, but pretty soon they'll die off. It's like pus being drawn from a wound.

Fine, fine, fine, you can trash those jerks to death as long as you're not defending the gaming industry, or Sarky.

Define "defend".

I watched one of Anita Sarkeesian's videos, and found my agreement and disagreement was about 50/50.

But I promise you, not one of these fussy manbabies has a clue what these videos are saying, and I have a big problem with personal attacks and character assassination passing for "criticism". Never mind the threats.

Fuck you, Homer. Get a blog.

That single news story explains everything that's going on here. This is a bunch of children angry that women are getting let inside their treehouse.

Oswald describes the situation flawlessly.

Speaking of Tea Party media outlets, Breitbart is starting to pander to the Gamerbabies in a big way. Recently they released a "smoking gun" which supposedly proves all the accusations against Zoe Quinn to be true. Said gun is a document which shows that some game journalists -- who may or may not have ever met or interacted with Quinn -- sometimes email each other.

For some reason the gamers are acting like this is the scoop of the century.

POWER UP; ADAM VS THE APOCALYPSE

Chapter 12: LEVEL 11: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers


Adam had to travel to one last fandom before facing the fearsome devil intending to destroy Adamís world. He jumped into the portal and it took him to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fandom.

*Theme plays*

Rita Repulsa: Ahhhh! After 10,000 years, Iím free! Itís time to conquer Earth!

Zordon: Alpha, Ritaís escaped! Recruit a team of teenagers with attitude!

Go Go Power Rangers!
Go Go Power Rangers!
Go Go Power Rangers!
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!

Go Go Power Rangers!
Go Go Power Rangers!
Go Go Power Rangers!
You Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!


Adam was now in Angel Grove, where the Power Rangers hang out when they are unmorphed.

Adam: This seems like a nice place. I wonder what could be going on here?

Adam went inside the juice bar. There was a gym where the rangers can workout and a bar with drinks, non-alcoholic of course.

Adam ordered a drink to refresh himself, until 5 teenagers arrived there. There was a muscular man with black hair, wearing red, named Jason. An asian woman wearing yellow, which was Trini. A guy in glasses who was very intelligent and he wore blue, named Billy. A valley girl in pink named Kimberly, an African-American guy in black named Zack and a man with long hair in green, which was Tommy.

Trini: How are we going to stop the end of the world?

Kimberly: Itís nearly ending and itís totally scaring me!

Zack: I doubt it would be caused by Rita, would it?

Tommy: We tried everything, even Rita confessed the clouds are not caused by her, or Lord Zedd.

Jason: I wonder if Zordon knows anything about this.

Billy: Look! This guy is wearing a Brainiac T-shirt! I love that show!

The six teens came to Adam to speak to him.

Kimberly: Hey! Are you new here?

Adam: Well, Iím new to the place and itís very nice here.

Jason: I know, and we often come here.

Adam: You seem nice people. Nice to meet you all. My nameís Adam.

The teens introduced themselves to Adam and shook hands with him. Little did he know that they were the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Billy: I watched Brainiac: Science Abuse and I love that show! Did you get to work for it?

Adam: No sadly, but it would be cool to.

Kimberly: Sorry to bring up negative news but have you seen the dark clouds in the sky?

Adam: Yes I know everything about it and Iím fighting to stop it.

Jason: But how?

Adam: The demon threatening our planet has given villains magical keys which allow them to rule the fandom. So far I have been very successful and I have only one more to grab.

Zack: So Rita and Zedd must have it!

Trini: I knew it would be!

Tommy: Catch us out someday Adam. Weíre off out!

Kimberly: We had an Adam on our side before.

Billy: Yep, good memories!

The six teens left the bar, while Adam finishes his drink.

Meanwhile, in a dark tower located in space, it was the home of Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa.

Lord Zedd: So the Power Rangers has found out about the key! Theyíre gonna need luck to grab it from me, because of my latest and most evillest plan yet!

There was a giant vat of a grey coloured gunge like substance. It resembled the Gunk Dunk from Get Your Own Back.

Rita looked at it and gulped silently. Secretly, even though she hated the Power Rangers, she thought it was too much and she did not approve of Zedd siding with Night Terror.

Lord Zedd: Night Terror and I could be the best of friends. Iím glad he has given me the right to rule the Power Rangers fandom! What do you think Rita?

Rita: Um, yeah! I think heís rather coolÖ

She also felt bad because she knew Adam was fond of the Power Rangers and would hate to see what Lord Zedd intends to do with them.

Rita: I, Iím going to spy on those Power Rangers now Zeddy!

Lord Zedd: But I already spied on them. Thereís no need!

Rita: Well I, I got such a headache! Iím getting an aspirin! See ya!

And she rushed off, leaving Zedd confused.

Lord Zedd: What is wrong with Rita?

Rita rushed to her room to spy at Adam. He left the juice bar and went out to explore the fandom.

Rita: Please hurry Adam!

Meanwhile back with Adam, we went out to a nearby field and he found the rangers at a nearby lake.

Jason: Oh look, itís Adam again.

Adam: Hello again.

Tommy: So you caught up with us then.

Adam: Yeah. I just happen to explore this fandom and see what itís about. What fandom is this anyway?

That question put the rangers in a pickle.

Trini: Itís, uhÖ

Before Trini could continue, a gang of putty patrollers attacked.

Kimberly: Oh great! Putties!

Zack: That Zedd and Rita never learn do they!

Jason: Trini, Kimberly! Protect Adam, letís get him guys!

The boys started fighting the putty patrollers. Trini and Kimberly tried to protect Adam and when they tried to get him, they fought as well.

Adam also joined in the fight with the putties as well. He drew out his wolverine claws and stabbed them. The rangers were amazed that Adam was a great fighter, in the online world anyway.

They all fought the putties until there were no more.

Billy: I never knew you could fight like that Adam.

Adam: Well, I had to, to grab the keys to stop the world ending.

Kimberly: Well that was pretty awesome!

Suddenly, from no where, Zedd and Ritaís minions, Goldar and Scorpina attacked.

Jason: Goldar!

Trini: Scorpina!

Goldar: Who else Power Rangers!

Goldar has called them Power Rangers, letting Adam know what fandom he is in.

Adam: So this is the Power Rangers fandom. I knew it would be!

Jason: Rangers, we gotta morph! I donít know what Zordon will say about thisÖ ITíS MORPHIN TIME!

And the rangers held up their morphers and started chanting out their zords. Adam however flashed in a burst of light.

Tommy: DRAGONZORD!

Zack: MASTODON!

Kimberly: PTERODACTYL!

Billy: TRICERATOPS!

Trini: SABERTOOTHED TIGER!

Jason: TYRANNOSAURUS!

And they flashed and wore magical coloured outfits. They have become the Power Rangers. Adam also becameÖ

--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
Yellow Ranger Adam
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

Adam also became a power ranger too.

Tommy: What the! Two Yellow Rangers?

Trini: But male?

Adam: Why not? Did you know your Japanese counterpart was male too.

Trini: Really? I never knew that!

Adam: Yeah. So that goes to show yellow can be a boys colour as well as a girls colour.

Scorpina: Enough chat! Letís fight!

Adam: All of you take on the sexy scorpion girl. Iíll take care of the golden demon!

Golder: You asked for it Cowardly Custard!

--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
MINI BOSS: Goldar
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

The Power Rangers fought Scorpina, while Adam fought Goldar.

Both of them were dangerous fighters. The Rangers could barely hit Scorpina as one by one she began hitting them all.

Adam and Goldar on the other hand, were busy fighting too. Goldar drew out his sword and Adam drew out his wolverine claws. Goldar was an expert swordsman so every attack Adam gave, he would defend himself with it. He charged after him and Adam defended himself with his claws. Adam delivered some kicks at Goldar, which did hurt him.

Adam leaped into the air and swooped at him with a fiery aura, and it pushed and burned Goldar.

Goldar slashed Adam with his sword, but he retaliated by bicycle kicking him and slammed him hard.

Goldar started firing energy blasts at Adam, but he avoided them, then he stabbed Goldar again with his claws and pushed him.

Adam then jumped in the air and stomped on Goldar on the head, finishing him. However, he noticed the six other rangers were tied up Scorpina.

Scorpina: Our work is done!

Adam came to help the rangers, only for Scorpina to disappear along with the captured rangers.

Goldar: Youíre too late! The rangers are ours!

And he disappeared too.

Adam: This isnít good! I must speak to Zordon!

He flashed and became

--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
Yellow Fire
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

And he flew himself to the command centre, where Zordon and Alpha 5 are.

When he arrived, he transformed back into Adam, but held a morpher to gain access.

He arrived where Zordon and Alpha resides, and they met him.

Alpha 5: Ai Yi Yi! How did you enter without a power coin?

Adam: I do have one.

He showed Alpha the power morpher Adam held.

Alpha 5: How strange? Did we ever recruit a male yellow ranger before?

Zordon: No. Adam arrived to stop the apocalypse caused by Night Terror. Itís a pleasure to meet you Adam. Iím glad you arrived too.

Adam: Rita and Zeddís minions have captured the Power Rangers Zordon!

Zordon: They captured the rangers to not only allow them to rule the power rangers fandom, but also plan their most diabolical plan yet! Putty Petrification!

Adam: Putty Petrification?

Zordon: Observe the viewing globe!

Adam looked into the glob and saw the rangers in a cage hovering above the pit with grey slime in Lord Zeddís palace.

Adam: Is that their own version of Get Your Own Back?

Zordon: That grey slime turns those it touches into putty patrollers, which Lord Zedd intends to dunk the rangers into the slime and it will turn them into their putty patroller slaves and will serve him for all eternity and nothing can be done to free them!

Alpha 5: Ai Yi Yi Yi Yi!!

Adam: You got that right! Thatís just wrong! It sounds disgusting! Can you send me to that palace to stop them?

Zordon: I can do that for you Adam, but I must caution you that Zedd and Rita are powerful sorcerers so please be careful!

Adam: Thanks Zordon! Iím on it!

Zordon: Good luck Adam, and may the power protect you!

Adam flashed and became his power ranger self, while Zordon with his magic, sent Adam to the palace.

Adam arrived and it was like that of a classic Legend of Zelda like dungeon. It was dark and evil there. Adam explored it, searching for Lord Zedd and Rita.

Putties were present in the palace, and Adam fought every one that attacked. As Adam explored the palace, Rita discovered him!

Rita: What? Another Ranger, IíllÖ

But Adam took off his helmet, revealing him.

Rita: Oh Adam, itís you!

Adam: Hello Rita!

Rita: Iím so glad you came Adam. I feel horrible because Lord Zedd will soon begin the Putty Petrification process any minute now. We only have 45 minutes before he begins it.

Adam: Zordon told me about Putty Petrification. It sounds wrong!

Rita: I may hate the power rangers as you know I fought them before but I think Putty Petrification is too much! I would rather have my putties to be made by Finster and his monster matic. I also donít like Zedd siding with Night Terror.

Adam: I know Rita. You told me that when we were in the JUMP fandom.

Rita: I must ask you Adam, please talk Zeddy out of siding with that demon! I beg you!

Adam: Donít worry Rita! I will!

Rita: Thank you! Follow me and be quick!

Adam followed Rita to the throne room, where Lord Zedd, his captured rangers and the putty goo were.

Trini: What is that stuff?

Kimberly: It looks gross!

Zack: And smells gross too!

Lord Zedd: At long last Rangers, you are about to finally meet your match! Iíve been wanting to do this for a long time! You will all now go through Putty Petrification! When I dip you all in there, you are gonna become putty patrollers in no time!

Jason: What?!

Tommy: Are you kidding us?!

Kimberly: I donít want to be a putty!

Lord Zedd: Itís too late Rangers! You thwarted me and Rita for so long, now I can finally get my revenge on you all!

Rita and Adam were outside the throne room. Rita whispered into Adamís ear. The two have a plan.

Lord Zedd: How long will Putty Petrification begin?

Goldar: In 30 minutes emperor!

Lord Zedd: Splendid! Rita had better hurry up! Whatís taking her so long?

Rita came in, grabbing hold of Adam, but pretending to of course.

Rita: Oh Zeddy, I have another Ranger for you!

Lord Zedd: Another one? Send him to the Putty goo, where he can join the others!

Adam, very lightly nudged Rita with his elbow and she pretended to be knocked down and defeated by him.

Rita: Oh no! He defeated me!

Adam: Itís just you and me now Zedd!

Rita winked while pretended to be defeated.

Lord Zedd: Come on you wimpy woman! Get up and fight!

Rita: But he hurt me so bad! *plays dead*

Lord Zedd growled with irritation, that Rita was seemly defeated by a single Yellow Ranger.

Adam: I will stop your disgusting idea of turning the poor rangers into putties!

Lord Zedd: Oh a single yellow power ranger challenges me? This is going to be very easy!

--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
BOSS: Lord Zedd
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------

Zedd started firing dark energy bolts with his staff. Adam narrowly avoided them.

As well as his magical powers, Lord Zedd was also a very good fighter as well, which he proved when delivered several punches and kicks to Adam.

However, Adam doesnít let his enemies beat him that easily, so he started stabbing with his wolverine claws, he was successful hitting him with them, but they did little damage and sometimes Zedd would defend himself with his staff.

Zedd started throwing grenades at Adam, some hit him, but some he avoided. Adam leaped into the air and pushed Zedd with his fiery aura.

Zedd fired a giant bolt of energy at Adam, which zapped him, but he got up and bicycle kicked him in the chest.

Adam blocked a kick from Zedd and stabbed him again. Zedd fired more dark energy bolts at Adam, again he avoided them.

Adam leaped into the air and pushed Zedd with his fiery aura. He also stabbed him again with his claws and kicked Zedd.

He finished Zedd off by uppercutting him and kicked him in the chest. The Diamond key of Justice flew out of Zeddís hands and Adam grabbed it. He used it to fire a magical beam at Zedd and finish him.

Adam: Weíre, finished!

Lord Zedd: How could this possibly be? I got defeated single handedly by a single yellow ranger?

Suddenly, Night Terror appeared in the palace.

Night Terror: Zedd you failure! You lost to some canary like a coward! I will destroy you!

Night Terror was charging a powerful fatal energy beam which will destroy Zedd.

Lord Zedd: No! Wait! Please!

Night Terror fired his dark energy beam, however, it was prevented when Adam used his magical key and Rita with her staff blocked off Night Terrorís attack on Zedd.

Rita: Be gone you foul creature!

Adam: What she said!

Night Terror: I hope you realise that I begin the apocalypse tomorrow Adam! You may have the last key, but itís not long before I destroy your world! You donít have any time at all! Enjoy your victory here as it will be your last!

Night Terror flew away back to his black hole.

Although Zedd was saved by Adam and Rita, he wasnít at all impressed.

Lord Zedd: Why did you make me look like a coward?! Thanks to you, Night Terror nearly destroyed me!

Adam: I didnít try to make you look cowardly Mr Ungrateful! We saved your life!

Rita: Thatís why I never approved of you siding with Night Terror to begin with Zedd.

Zedd: You didnít?

Rita: No. Also, I donít think Putty Petrification is a good idea as well.

Zedd: What? Why not?

Rita: Because itís going too far! I know the rangers has been thwarting us for so long but I donít want to turn them into putties.

Lord Zedd: But if they are putties, we can rule the world, just like what we wanted!

Rita: But itís too disgusting. I like my putties to be made by Finster! Please cancel it Zeddy! I beg you!

Lord Zedd: *frustrated* Ohhh! Very well!

Zedd moved the cage from the vat of Putty goo and freed the rangers from turning to putties. The rangers were relieved.

Billy: Phew! That was a close one!

Kimberly: *sighes* Just in time too!

Lord Zedd: Weíll let you live for now Power Rangers, but weíll get you someday!

Zack: Pfft! Yeah right!

Jason: Goodbye Zedd, see you never again!

Trini: Yeah, see ya!

Tommy: Coming Adam?

Adam: Yeah, Iím coming now.

He was speaking to Rita secretly before leaving.

Rita: Thanks for talking Zedd out of Night Terror Adam. Iím evil in their fandom but you saved them from a cruel fate even I wouldnít do.

Adam: No problem Rita. Iím glad I could help you.

Scorpina also heard Adam and Rita talking.

Scorpina: I didnít think Putty Petrification was a good idea anyway.

Adam: Well itís finished now. Anyway, I have to go now because I donít have much time at all!

Rita: I know. You need to go quick! Doomsday begins tomorrow!

Adam: I know! Goodbye Rita! I hope weíll meet again!

Adam and the Power Rangers left Zedd and Ritaís palace and when they returned to their world, Adam used the key to remove Night Terrorís fog.

Adam: And the Power Rangers fandom is saved.

Trini: Nice one Adam! You were awesome!

Zordon: Yes, well done for saving our world Adam and the rangers.

Jason: I really thought it would be the end of us!

Tommy: But no, you saved us.

Adam: Thanks guys! Iím glad to have befriended you all, however, I have to go, quick because soon, my world will be destroyed!

Zordon: We completely understand Adam. We all wish you the very best of luck to destroy the Doomsday Devil!

Adam said goodbye to his friends and returned to the Hub world.

Adam: I did it! I got the last key!

Honey and Misty were excited!

Honey: Oh goodie! Heís finally gonna open the chest!

Misty: Iím so excited!

Adam placed the key into the chest and it was finally unlocked. The chest opened and inside was a golden shining sword. The master sword theme from Ocarina of Time played. It was the Holy Blade of Equality. Adam held it in his hands.

Adam: I do not believe this!

Misty: That sword is so pretty!

Honey: And shiny! Oh Daddy, you have done so well!

Fairy Godmother: Yes, you have done so well to get this far Adam. I am very proud of you!

Suddenly, the Hub began shaking.

Honey: Is that an earthquake?

Fairy Godmother: No! Itís a warning the world will be destroyed in the next 12 hours. Come everyone, Itís time to confront the evil demon! Adam, with your sword, we will place our complete confidence and trust in you to destroy Night Terror for good!

Adam: But what happens if I fail? What if he kills me?

Fairy Godmother: It does not matter! I want you to be courageous and save your planet. We will help you if anything happens to you. With my magic, I will help out any way I can to help you.

Adam: Then, I am ready! Girls, are you ready!

Honey: Weíre scared, but we are!

Misty: Yes Daddy! Weíll come!

Fairy Godmother: Then follow me! Itís time to confront Night Terror once and for all!

Adam and his girls followed the Fairy Godmother into what looks like a black hole. They jumped in it, taking them to where Night Terror resides.

This is it! Adam is now finally coming face to face with the Doomsday Devil! Will he succeed? Wish him luck because he will need it and lots of it!

// Milo's been waiting for him, out in the snow. Maybe Major Major can warm him, while he tries to warm the other's heart. Major Major & Milo.
-------------------------------------------------------------- -

Hey! I know I still have another story to finish (Actually, I've barely even started it), but the lack of Catch-22 fanfics SHOCKED me! So, here you go; enjoy!
-------------------------------------------------------------- -





He knocked back another shot of whiskey. It kissed his throat in a sweet, loving embrace. He wasn't supposed to be drinking on the job, really, but who would see him? He'd been holed up in his office for God-knows-how-long now. It was the best idea he ever had. No one was around to reject him.

He liked being alone.

Major Major Major Major had been doomed from the minute his father signed his birth certificate. He never knew it until Kindergarten, though. When he was signed up for the class, it was revealed to all that his name was not Caleb Major, as he had thought all of his short life, but Major Major Major. His poor, dear mother fell into the illness that took her life, and he himself had been dismissed by all of his classmates. Why should they trust him, if he'd been lying to them about his name all this time?

His life had been a string of bad luck since that moment. But it had been coming to him ever since his father penned the final "R" of his name onto the piece of paper that sealed his fate. He wanted to hate him, his father, but how could he? He was, after all, his father. If it weren't for that man, he would not even exist.

Though sometimes, he wished he didn't.

There was a timid knock on his door. He knew that knock anywhere. It belonged to Milo, the mess officer, dropping off his dinner.

Milo Minderbinder. The one person Major Major had actually considered a friend before he'd decided to cut himself off from the rest of the world. He felt bad about not allowing Milo to ever see him again, but he couldn't just make an exception to his new rule, could he?

He waited a while, perhaps longer than necessary, before walking over to the door to retrieve his food, once he was sure Milo had already left. But when he threw open the door, he saw, not a plate full of the usual mess hall sludge, but a young mess officer, his hair windswept; his cheeks red from the cold. Tiny flakes of frost stuck to the boy's hair, his lashes, his lips. Major Major swallowed the lump in his throat.

"Milo!"

"Major, sir." The younger male was shuddering from being in the bitter cold so long. Great. All that caution taken so that Milo wouldn't see him, and now, not only had he been seen, but the poor kid was freezing his balls off out here.

"Milo!" The older man was having trouble maintaining his composure. "Come in, will you?"

His assailant didn't waste any time following that order. He shuffled inside, rubbing his arms, blowing into his hands. The poor lad's knees were knocking. For someone who spends all his time in the mess hall, you'd think he'd be less scrawny.

The boy seemed to notice that his friend was waiting for an explanation. Gripping the older male's desk for support, he spoke sheepishly, still cold and a-trembling.

"I, uh, sir, I..." He was having trouble keeping his blush down. "It's been so long, y'know, and I... I miss you... In the mess hall, sometimes... a lot." The poor chap looked a frozen mess. The snow in his hair had melted, further adding to the illusion that Milo was a wet puppy.

In that moment, Major Major wanted nothing more than to press against that small body; than to warm him with his embrace. He tried to fool himself into thinking it was just the weeks of solitude getting to him, but he knew it was more than that. It was that smile. That laugh. It was all those times Milo stayed by his side, when the others rejected him.

"You're cold."

"Yes, sir, I am."

Major Major stepped closer to his young friend. Christ, was he really about to do this?

"S-sir?" Milo managed to stutter.

Major Major closed the distance between them, pressing his shivering young friend back against his desk, capturing those lovely lips in a kiss. Milo's body responded positively; his hands pressing to Major Major's chest, in a way that said 'more', not 'stop'. His tongue flickered over the young man's lips, and he was immediately granted access into Milo's mouth. Oh, the sounds he made.

The two pulled away for air; nothing connecting their lips but a thin string of saliva, but soon that too was broken. Milo stared longingly into the older male's eyes.

"Sir..."

"Call me Caleb."

"Caleb... that's such a nice name."

"It is, isn't it?"

The now-christened Caleb Major moved Milo's scarf away from his neck, and gently kissed the newly-exposed skin there. The younger male shivered beneath him, but he didn't think it had anything to do with the cold.

******Catch-22; No one is to enter the office of Major Major Major Major, unless he isn't there. Except for Milo Minderbinder.******

Saying something negative about a video game makes you a radical (somewhere along the line 'radical' became synonymous with 'extremist', I guess) feminist now.

Two stars for this weird monkey thing, three stars for using "misandrist" unironically.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Yes, it's those nasty radical feminists, marching in the streets with their half hour video lectures. BEWARE THE PLAID PERIL!

Nominal
Nobody but the very worst fringe niche ever bought into Lord Verantani's or whatever his name is blatant opportunist cash grab. In fact I called it out as such in his last video submitted here. It's exactly what I meant when I said people like him and Anita aren't enemies; they're symbiotes. We have a brave new world of counter-counter-counter-counter crowdfunding out of spite projects to look forward to.

Anita is hardly fringe. She speaks at corporate events while sad MRA groups have to rent their own hotel conference room circle jerks and no company would ever touch them.

To say Anita's more prominent status is deserved because she's a voice for equality, acceptance, and positivity runs completely contrary to everyone's experience with Anita supporters. Right here on supposedly one of the saner corners of the web, over half the pro-Anita replies are accusing every critic of being lower than pus tea party hate group fedora virgins (an odd insult to use on behalf of a message that women aren't prizes to prove a man's worth)
who need to eat bags of fileted gamer dicks before public execution.

SolRo
Anita's more prominent status is given because she's not a raging extremist.

Companies and groups have a hard time accepting speakers that spend most of their free time (literally) cursing the existence of a specific person or group.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Nominal, if you think my repeated comment about eating a bag of dicks was directed at all critics of Anita, and not to you personally, you've underestimated the depth of my feelings for you.

Anita may be more collected and subtle with her message, but its still clear, Women>Men.
Very sad that voices like hers are beginning to define modern feminism, while actually sane feminists like Christina Hoff Sommers and Camille Paglia are being demonized by thier peers for not speaking out against the narrative.

Christina Hoff Sommers calls herself a feminist. Glen Beck calls himself a moderate. Fox News calls itself balanced.

You're probably not actually stupid enough to believe she's actually what she says she is. You're just that desperate for someone to repeat your opinions back to you. Someone who looks and sounds credible and isn't a human trainwreck whose life revolves around his Xbox achievement score, I mean.

asian hick
Aren't you the guy from 4chan who recently went on a racist tirade about how brown people immigrating to the UK would destroy British (ie white) culture? You're basically an idiot.

Go ahead, cite me anything Anita has said that implies she thinks women are better than men or that she's a radical feminist. Do it.

Nominal
TimidAres, she's only "subtle" in the game videos. Her other pop culture videos and tumblr are where the true hostile crazy shines through. Did you know the song "Santa Baby" is a tool by the patriarchy to keep women dependent on men for shallow favors and gifts? Stay tuned for her upcoming project where she reveals that the movie Alien was sexist all along!

No really, that's her next project.

Anita's not a scam artist. She's a pundit. Her critiques and videos are lifted straight out of the FOX news playbook. Her Hitman video calling it a reward system for misogynist necrophilia was no different from FOX news calling Mass Effect a sex simulator. Once you've painted a group negatively with gross misinformation, it's easy to cherry pick only the most hateful replies in order to feign shock and claim the problem is worst than you thought. It's a routine done over and over and over again by the Right and it's sad to the progressive's base adopting it.

It's punditry to reaffirm peoples' reactionary attitudes. It isn't calling for a roundtable presentation of ideas to reach common grounds and mutual understanding to improve things, it's people who have always had chips on their shoulders given superficially progressive permission to fling shit because flinging shit feels good.

John Holmes Motherfucker

See, now you're playing the victim, persecuted by academic criticism-- and how much cherry picking do you think it takes to get to the really hateful responses?

Your assumption is that criticism of a trope extends to the work as a whole, and by extension to the audience. That's how thinks work on Fox News, it's now how cultural criticism works.

Nobody hates you for liking video games. It's because you're a dick.

John Holmes Motherfucker
I don't really have much of an opinion about Anita Sarkeesian as a critic, but I'm convinced that practically everyone who's complaining misunderstands her premise, and that's easy to do, especially on the internet, where there's rarely a distinction between criticism and trashing, either in perception or reality.

She's not saying what everybody thinks she's saying. She not using sexist tropes to say that a work is sexist. She's talking about the tropes themselves.



This article is key. You don't have to agree with it, but if you don't understand AnitaSarkeesian's work on its own terms, you don't understand it, period.

http://tinyurl.com/m2fabzs

>>There's a common trope of framing Sarkeesian's work as "cherry-picked", as she takes isolated examples from many games and presents them as a stream of misogyny in order to create the illusion that all of these games are entirely misogynist, the entire way through. That's a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is Sarkeesian is doing with TvsWVG, and what cultural criticism in general is. These are tropes - they're fragments of a whole. By definition they don't make up the entirety of a work of art by themselves, but are instead definable cultural touchstones which artists, writers, developers etc, can use when creating a fictional reality.

>>In other words, Anita Sarkeesian only presents sections of games as sexist because she's only talking about the sexist bits of games, and how, of the tropes developers choose to put in their games when designing for female characters, they frequently fall back on sexist ones. Seriously, she couldn't be clearer about this - in the introduction to the very first video she says:

>>"This series will include critical analysis of many beloved games and characters, but remember that it is both possible (and even necessary) to simultaneously enjoy media while also being critical of its more problematic or pernicious aspects."
John Holmes Motherfucker
When feminist literary critics discuss sexist tropes in literature, including works by authors they openly admire, no one accuses them of attacking books, or people who read books.

When Anita Sarkeesian claims to love games, I believe her, not only because the evidence against is inconclusive, but because I've never heard of a film critic who hated movies, or a literature critic who hated books.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
Nobody accuses feminist literary critics of hating books because people who read books aren't as stupid as people who play video games

John Holmes Motherfucker
Yes, I think that's where I was going with this.

John Holmes Motherfucker
WAIT NO NO NO that's not necessarily true. There are better ways of understanding these things than big concepts like stupidity and misogyny. It's easy to forget that. They're not stupid, and they're not cartoons.

Games really have been under attack before. They've been telling themselves scary campfire stories about feminists for years, because hucksters like thunderf00t and The Amazing Atheist make money cranking out clickbait. And the internet isn't used to this kind of nuanced criticism. And like I said, it's about adolescent identification. I'm not going to tell you the embarrassing shit i was into when I was 19.

Anita Sarkeesian doesn't seem like a monster, or perfect. Her work is great because it adds legitimacy to gaming as an form. Films use the Bechdel test, but a majority of gaming as a whole is a bit behind this sort of responsibility of presentation with gender and race.

I discovered today that merely typing any gibberish with the hashtag "#gamergate" on Twitter will result in fifty message wherein people fanatically peruse your past Tweets to find something to discount anything you say with.

EXTRA CONTEXT FUNTIME:

So yesterday we found out that a gamer threatened to set off a bomb at the 2014 Game Critics Awards because Anita Sarkeesian was being honored there:

That's okay, though, a guy on /v/ told me that it's not murder if you kill someone who said mean things about Hitman 5.

Well gee! That level-headed, neutral intellectualism certainly doesn't seem redundant at all now! Hope you had a fun time, Nominal, because I don't see any reason to humanize a bunch of people who would go to this level in a world that has already taken the concept of identity to a ridiculous point to manifest gender and sexuality oriented phobias and still continue to pursue these ideologies in a grasp to feel and/or seem normal to a degree that any such attack/abrasive/cynicism is an outright abomination and danger to their living, breathing life.

I'm so sorry that in a world where standard, day-to-day journalism that would be meant to give local, national and international news and events has decayed into advertisements, sidestepping and the hope that everyone who paid attention stays loyally to their news pages; that the last bastion of integrity journalism will ultimately rate Pokťmon 9 with an 8 out of 10 rather than it's deserving rating of 6 out of 10 has been successfully ruined by a philanthropist with a vagina agenda

No, we're accusing them of being spoiled, fussy, entitled manbabies who need to grow the fuck up. Nominal, are you so willfully obtuse that you don't see the double standard you apply to this? You're still butthurt over my eat a bag of dicks comment from a week ago, but threats against Anita are really being overstated.

>>She even cherry picks criticism against her. Checking out her official twitter page, roughly half of the negative tweets she gets amount to "People don't hate you because they're misogynist, they hate you because you're dishonest." A third of it amounts to "god you're dumb" or "shut up". Five percent is how she needs a good dicking. Less than that and you finally get to the lazy "get raped and die" comments which I guess she's counting as credible death threats, but I see that posted here at least half a dozen times every time a FOX news pundit says something off putting so I don't see how that's different.

>>Seriously go through all the FOX news clips here and count the number of gang rape wishes on Megyn Kelly and Ann Coulter. You can pass it off as generic internet hate trolling (which I would totally buy), but why does it suddenly become serious business when it happens to some feminist? An antagonizing feminist who uses the exact same misinformation punditry tactics as FOX news.

If you got 5 per cent of the abuse Anita's gotten, you would never stop crying like a fussy baby.
