EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE: DARING TO ACTUALLY HELP WOMEN…

01) Anita Sarkeesians dirty little secret!

02) EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE: DARING TO ACTUALLY HELP WOMEN (please give if you can)


“in the meanwhile, Anita Sarkeesian wants another $200 000 in essentially a rerun of her kickstarter project of 2012, which asked for $6000 to make 6 videos in about 6 months. It actually delivered only 2 of those videos in about 3 years (so far) out of $150 000 dollars she raised! In the meanwhile her organization (which according to her tax return still doesnt have employees) has raised almost a million dollars…. and this STILL wasnt enough for her! And even more surprising is that there are still feminists willing to throw money at her despite this track record!”


Feminist Frequency’s Finances and Anita Sarkeesian’s Honesty:


There is one thing that was going through my mind, while watching Thunderfoot’s video…

…Who in the heck is shelling out all this money to Anita, for a smattering of videos?…and videos which display highly questionable integrity, at that.

I could not imagine producing such little volume of content, and getting paid in six figures for it…especially, when arriving on the scene as an unknown…and being rather brazen, about the fact that…well…they’re just not interested in being accurate, so much as in selling a concept.

…That there has been, apparently, zero response to her own critics [except to complain about the fact she’s being criticized]…that has just compounded things.

…Being a self described “social media critic” [or something to that effect]…I’m at a loss to explain, just exactly what she does…keeps a website online…posts on Twitter…and occasionally produces/uploads a video to YouTube?

…There are many of us out here [including yours truly], who’ve been doing these kinds of things for a decade or more…but have never seen it as a viable source of income…In fact, we never have done this stuff for money…Granted, given my own social circumstances [being a Minor Attracted Person], it’s not a huge mystery why it would be such an uphill battle, for me to build such a business…But the point remains…personal financial gain, has never entered into the equation for me…as is the case for millions of people online.

…So, I mean…I get that the internet has evolved into a media hub…and modern media is just this shallow…and it’s fickle…and it’s prone to get itself [and people who follow it] caught up, into the latest fad, or ideas of a cause [seemingly, anymore, regardless of how bad the idea]…

…It’s made me wonder, if Anita hasn’t been unofficially adopted as a figurehead…an avatar…a pawn…someone to become a focal point, in pushing certain social agendas.

…Because in an of her own activities…it is unbelievable, that people have paid her roughly a million dollars for what she has done…

Even just looking at her YouTube channel…

There’s a grand total of 54 videos, on Anita’s YouTube channel…produced and uploaded over six years…This is not an especially lively and active channel…

…which is perfectly fine, in itself…I mean, heck…I only log into my own YouTube channel, when I need to release a rare video of my own making…Thing is, I never expect to be paid anything, let alone a million dollars, for what I do on YouTube.

…Only about a dozen [or less?] of her videos, are even related to these massive payments…Everything else seems like typical YouTube stuff, from someone trying to establish themselves on YouTube.

If she’s only produced 54 [mostly quite short] videos in six years…that doesn’t really scream “professional media producer” to me…I mean…as a media laymen, I produced over fifty videos in one year, on my EQvideo channel…Say what you will about their looks and style…but the were content rich, and displayed integrity.

…Again, this brings me back to the point…there are people cranking out media daily, on YouTube…doing it much better than Anita…and there isn’t this crazy groundswell of donors, rising up to support most content creators…Not like there has been for Anita.

I just feel like there has got to be something going on behind the scenes, here…Anita hasn’t even begun to deserve the money being thrown at her…And now she wants another $200,000?

…And people have gone a long way already, in giving it to her?

…Even in the face of what she’s produced?

…Something is being pushed here…and it’s not quality content.


Addendum:

Anita is a professional speaker, charging $20,000 an appearance?…

…How?…Why?…What has she ever done, to actually command such an income?

…And who wants to pay that much, to have her speak at their event?
