Saw this via Gary Whitta's Twitter and found it shocking.
Feminist blogger Anita Sarkeesian decided to to a web video series to examine how women are depicted in videogames, and like most people with an idea these days started a KickStarter, it seems like a worthy idea and a topic that's been discussed around these parts a few times.
Predictably the nerds have risen up to demonstrate the very serious problems in gaming culture.
First up, the YouTube comments.
Then, the Wikipedia vandalising.
Turns out there's been a lot said about this, most of the media coverage is collected on the KickStarter's update page. Starting to work through some of it now, but I thought I'd share.
I should mention that thanks to the controversy the project has raised $158 000 when the goal was $6000, Sarkeesian is going to be spending a lot of time on this project.
Also, predictably the RPS take, by John Walker, is a good one.
