Hi everyone. Remember that time Anita Sarkeesian decided to ask people to donate money voluntarily to a Kickstarter project to fund a series exploring how common memes or tropes in videogaming may just present women in a negative light?*
Do you remember how the resulting backlash meant the kickstarter raised over $160,000? Yet those same people who so objected to her starting the project swore blind she would just run off with all the money?
Well today is a happy day. A day you can feel rather smug and come out of it a bit more informed as well. The first part of the series has just gone up.
Those who enjoyed the video can check out her other work on her channel, or her website. Feminist Frequency.
*I’m saying might, partially because its meant to allow for both sides to have an equal view and prevent bias. Partially because in some parts of the internet people actually believe that with no trace of irony**.
**But to hell with those people.
