I don't mind the personal politics in reviews/articles at all, that's kinda the point of writing about stuff. What I do care about is when the person writing is hypocritical or sensationalist. I don't want to be told I'm a piece of shit misogynist just because I'm not offended to my core by something, or my opinion being irrelevant because I'm one of these straight, white males - as if that's a bad thing? For these reasons I've never taken Arthur Gies or Anita Sarkeesian seriously.
Another reason I don't take the latter seriously.
flagrant use of the male gaze.
Wtf does that mean? Is she implying a male's gaze is inherently sexual? Is that not a sexist thing to say?
I've watched through multiple series of bad Korean 'reality' shows and whatever the hell Invincible Youth was. Were they good? No, although you can probably argue IY was at least decent. Did I enjoy them? I think so?
