“When Mr. Disney first planned One Hundred and One Dalmatians, he called me to the Studio to read for the role of Cruella de Vil. As I was sitting with him at a table at the studio, he was reading the role of Anita and I was trying very hard to be Cruella de Vil. But I knew it wasn’t working because I was too young and it wasn’t right. As I heard him read the role of Anita, I knew that I was right for Anita, but how could I possibly tell the great Walt Disney that he had brought me in and had made a mistake?!
“So, I became brave enough to tell him and I said, ‘Excuse me, sir. Would you mind if I try to read the role of Anita? I’m much more Anita than I am Cruella.’ And he said, ‘Let’s try that!’ So, we reversed the roles. He read Cruella and I read Anita, and indeed I was Anita. And I still feel like Anita all these many years later!”
– Lisa Davis, the voice of Anita Radcliff from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians
Anita Sarkeesian, notable feminist and founder of the Feminist Frequency organization, verbally harassed Youtuber Sargon of Akkad at a panel about combatting harassment yesterday at Vidcon. She has launched a person attack on Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad), calling him a garbage human, and a shit head on stage, to praise from her followers (Garbage human no doubt being an insult her fans will use on him for years to come.). Anita has quite blatantly broke Vidcons terms of service regarding harassment, and so Sargon is requesting that we make Vidcon founders and organizers Hank and John Green aware that this has happened, and request that she is removed from Saturdays panel also about harassment, for flagrantly violating Vidcons terms and guidelines, and for flying in the face of the message of her own panel.
