Topic subject is the name of the video BTW. It didn't come from me.
Here is video about her, I've never seen posted here so I'm going to post it here.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcPIu3sDkEw

The video is only pointing out that she lied to people or (I highly doubt it)changed her mind. The video does not criticize her beliefs.

So it's now clear me creating this thread, will result in every one of my posts in this thread being low rated by butt hurt Anita fan boys. Oh well. Very childish behavior and I'm not scared. And if you downrep just one of my posts...NO COOKIES FOR YOU!

PS
Before judging this post, at least, watch the video...not too much to ask.

This thread is about her, not her beliefs so I don't see why you guys don't want to participate...

Since when do you have to be an initiate to have knowledge of things =P, and she is a woman which more or less grants her the right to say the things she does.
The YouTuber on the other hand sounds more like a butt hurt anti-feminist than Anita is feminist tbh.

Yeah but the point of the video is she is a liar.

I watched the videos and my thoughts are:

First of all, the section where she talks at the course wasn't loud enough for me to fully make out what she said, but I got the part where she said she didn't want to play violent video games, which is understandable. It's possible that the other part did say that she didn't play at all.

The other thing that came to mind from the other quotes was that based on the media clips she's doing quite a good service selling the benefits of video games.
high rated
Ok, I'll bite.

First, what is a real gamer? How many hours a day do you have to game in order to be a real gamer?

Second, this is a person who asked for a bunch of money to buy games so she could do some videos. I'd assume a real gamer would already have them, no? If I wanted to do a series of videos about, say, the views on independentism in videogames; I would have to do a kickstarter to buy video recording equipment, not games. I already have hundreds of them, and buying the ones I'm missing is probably not going to change my views about games at this point.

So, I'd say she's a social commentator who happened to have an interest games this time around. Nothing wrong with that.
Low rated for posting a non offensive video and asking what others think about it? Seriously? So now people get low rated here for posting news... WOW, talk about censorship... Low rating someone for simply posting news is evil.

The point of the video is that she is a liar....or maybe not. Maybe she changed her mind.

Read my first sentence again, I wrote it with a bit of irony.
What I really do not understand is why people get so worked up about her.

Can't watch the video right now, internet is really slow this morning for some reason and streaming video is out of the question. So I respond to your OP text only.

As for the low rated... well, you knew this is a problematic topic to start with, and the way the thread title is worded is a bit... confrontational. I don't think that desserves a low rate, but obviously there's people who do.

I worded the thread title like that because that is the title of the video on Youtube. Not my words. I understand that the words "real gamer" annoy people because it sounds like it comes from an elitist.
