I couldn't understand one word he said in the video. I don't even know who he is.

I was told by a few women who I asked this to on Facebook (that I personally know) what they thought and she said that men don't really have body types thrown at them and only women do. I was also told that since women get eating disorders from self esteem and body issues that men do not even though I personally know men who DO and I also linked several studies showing 1 in 4 men suffer from eating disorders related to the same problems.
Men are starting to get it. What Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, Henry Cavill, and Chris Evans go through to look like their super hero counterpart is insane.
Are body issues larger for women? Yeah, but modern feminism is such that if you do not agree 100% with their argument then you are "a troll" and they try to make your argument illegitimate. Anita Sarkeesian may have good intentions but since she only ever calls out trolls and never has an actual debate with anyone intelligent, well read, and respectable she only ever comes off as wanting softballs thrown her way so she looks victorious. Not to mention her web videos haven't talked about or shown things that have been beaten to death with no new, original, or increasingly thought provoking commentary from her side or opinion. That's my problem. I don't hate her, I just think her work comes across as lazy and old hat. If she wants to throw it in my face that this industry is sexist then she needs to find new material and not everything I already know.
I completely agree with your assessment of Sarkeesian. The damsel in distress is a lazy story telling device, but it isn't a video game fault. It goes back thousands of years. She has always struck me as someone who goes out of here way to get offended.
I rarely drink energy drinks because I hate the crash, but when I must I go for a 12 oz Sugar Free Red Bull. For me the crash is less severe vs a Rockstar. I would rather drink coffee though. It doesn't cause a crash effect.
Congratulations. Don't let retail turn you into a bitter old man like I am. Though I would be bitter even if I didn't work in the service industry. It's easy to focus on the few a-hole customers and forget that most of them are nice but quirky.
