For reference before we begin, watch this video from popular female Youtuber Barbara4u2c for the full explanation of what happened at Feminist Frequency’s “Woman Online” panel at VidCon 2017. If you want to skip the entire video I won’t blame you, but if you want to hear Anita Sarkeesian call someone a: “garbage human being” it starts off at the 2:40-minute mark of the video:
Can I for the record state the level of irony in this video is over 9000? When Anita Sarkeesian hosts a panel specifically against things like cyberbullying, only to turn around to someone she dislikes in the audience (Sargon) and call them a garbage human being? Add to the fact that Sargon wasn’t doing anything to provoke her outside of silently watching her panel. It seems like Anita was attempting to provoke a reaction out of Sargon so that she could then spin that into a story about how she was the target of abuse in real life. So she could get more of the frequent flyer miles on that victim card of hers. But seriously though. Anita insulting and abusing people from her anti-bullying soap box and then claiming that she is feeling unsafe is transparently and weak as fuck coming from her. At least the meme’s coming out of this entire thing is pure gold:
And of course, Anita’s fans were out in full force throwing all kinds of abuse Sargon’s way not realizing the sweet sweet irony behind all of this. Anita being a member of an anti-harassment panel surrounded by her loyal fans then pointing to and singling out one of her critics in the audience to verbally berate them with legitimately abusive names, for no other reason other than they’re there, at an event that forbids this very type of behavior demonstrated by her. Imagine the utter fucking shitstorm If Sargon called Anita a garbage human while sitting on that panel. He would have been marched off by Vidcon security and Twitter would have crashed under the load of retweets and moral outrage.
The hilarious thing is Anita’s fans and followers all came out and started trying to attack Sargon over it on Twitter. And as far as I can see he has retweeted damn near every single one of them at VidCon as “evidence” that Anita is harassing him. All of which is getting retweeted and replied to by thousands upon thousands of people. He’s holding Anita to the exact same rules of behavior that she holds everyone else to and trolling the shit out of these people and these mindless drones don’t even know it. He is obviously trolling, I would have thought the amount of people including myself pointing it out on Twitter at this point would’ve tipped most of these people off by now.
[Editorial Note:] Anita darling, if Sargon is “human garbage” then you must be a garbage dump…
