Oh yay, I'm sure Valve will be more than willing to sacrifice millions of dollars in revenue for these important, influential people

Oh boy, I'm sure this will work and totally not undermine their message. Why not just put a giant banner on the front page that says "we want to take away your games!" while you're at it.

I'm offended by Feminists. I think we should make a petition to ban them from using the internet

There is a reason no one will ever take these guys seriously ever

Posts like these are why I try to stay off of GameFAQs.

I mean, Anita Sarkeesian's videos are much more reasonable and level-headed than people here give them credit for. I do think that this is an ill-conceived way of reaching out to gamers about this, but really, denying the problem with the level of vitriol that some people here are doing isn't helping make your respective cases.

Haha, if you look at the comments of who has signed the peitition (250 sigs btw). Kim Jong Un is at the top.

Good, I hope Valve does what she asks. Then she'll cry more tears to feed on, because she sure ain't going to get anything else.

It is the fact you are offended, quite frankly, that offends me.

I think the general message of her videos are correct, but... she has to use examples to prove them and instead of going after ones I literally think of before the video starts rolling, the most insanely unfair examples that require misleading of the audience are used. (Edit: I should clarify, not ALL of the examples, but the most recent video was too much for me)

She made a lot of money. She should REALLY hire a journalist from ANY gaming site. Hell, most anyone from Kotaku or Polygon would do it for free.

Third wave feminism should be classified as a cult like Heaven's Gate and banned. There's no need for any form of extremism in the world.

Yeah, that's a fair critique. It's really more the people who deny that sexism in games is a problem at all that frustrate me.
