A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting an update from Hank following the disaster that was the “Women Online” panel focused on the harassment and abuse women receive online. Through some sort of cosmic joke, Anita Sarkeesian ended up on the panel and it didn’t take long before she put on a marvelous display of hypocrisy by pointing at a member of the audience and proudly proclaiming that he was “human garbage”.
So why the controversy? The targeted member of the audience was none other than Sargon of Akkad, a famous YouTuber that dissects news and videos pointing out the errors and mistakes made. This criticism presented by Sargon and others is according to Anita plain harassment. I’m not sure if this was an intentional way to get a new victim card from the deck, or just a demonstration of her inability to control herself, but the outcome so far might be worse than the incident.
