Radical feminist and alleged scam artist Anita Sarkeesian is outraged that women in The Mandalorian have “boob armour/armor.”
Feminist Frequency host Anita Sarkeesian is outraged that the hit Disney Star Wars show The Mandalorian has women in different armour then me and lashes out out the so-called “boob armour” (armor in American).
It’s not easy to appease Anita Sarkeesian. A few years ago she lead a campaign to change the games industry forever. She thought the games industry, both game designers and gamers alike, were toxic misogynists and sexist pigs. Her goal was to make it more inclusive.
After making several speeches at some campuses and complaining on the internet she vowed to make a documentary series called Tropes vs. Women in Video Games.
Sarkeesian launched a Kickstarter for her series and, despite reaching many of her stretch goals, she did not deliver on her promise… until much later at least.
After being called a scam artist Anita finally decided to — somewhat — deliver on her promise and released a handful of episodes to her series. However, it was blatantly obvious to many that the funds that she made through Kickstarter did not all go to production of her series.
Anita Sarkeesian used stolen footage from other YouTube channels and plagiarised works from popular gaming blogs as well as been verifiably false on most of claims about the so-called sexism in video games.
The mainstream media buried the controversy an Anita went on to become a highly influential figure, even influencing games like The Last of Us Part II, in the games industry.
Now she’s setting her sights at the hit Disney Plus original Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
The 37-year-old feminist activist and self-proclaimed gamer is outraged that Disney would dare use “boob armour” in their series.
“Lady Mandalorian’s have boob armour? Oh come on seriously,” Anita tweeted.
Hundreds of people were quick to criticise her tweet as being unedacted and moronic.
“Couldn’t imagine how they feel if they didn’t have a space for which their breast wouldn’t be pressed into a fucking pancake, I’d imagine that would be painful or at least uncomfortable,” one user responded.
Despite the overwhelming negative response on Twitter, Anita Sarkeesian decided double, even triple, down on her statement.
“Sure are a lot of blacksmiths in my mentions today,” she added. “These grown ass children get so emotional and throw these embarrassing temper tantrums when a woman has even the slightest critique on the mainstream, corporate media they feel ownership over. They keep trying to gate keep THE MOST POPULAR FRANCHISE IN THE WORLD.”
“Sorry to burst your bubble but the jig is up y’all. Star Wars isn’t some niche exclusive tree club where you hang up a ‘No Girls Allowed’ sign and dictate the terms of the discourse. It never was and that is not changing any time soon,” she concluded.
This isn’t the first time Anita Sarkeesian has been offended by The Mandalorian.
Anita led a cancel campaign against the showrunner for not having sufficient female representation in the first episode of The Mandalorian.
November 2019, Anita tweeted: “Am I extremely tired or is there not a single female speaking character in the first episode of #Mandelorian?? I’ve gotta have missed something right???”
She then followed it up with another Tweet accusing Jon Favrau of using ‘token women’ in the show.
“I guess Jon Favreau was like ‘well if we just make all the vehicles female like the ship and the Blurrg then we’re good right? That’s just the right amount of female‘.”
The Mandalorian season 2 is now streaming on Disney Plus. You can sign up for a membership for as little as AUD$8.99 a month and start watching your favourite Disney shows and movies.
