Watch Anita Sarkeesian's great takedown of gendered tropes in video games in her new series, Tropes Vs. Women, a Kickstarter funded video series dedicated to analyzing the plot devices and patterns that female characters are most commonly associated with in video games.

Sarkeesian is a true hero.  She entertains and educates.  When she started the campaign to raise the $6,000 she needed to do the video she got death threats and was subject to a horrific campaign of misogyny.  But for a change, the good gals won out, and there was a huge backlash against these assholes and Sarkeesian wound up making $158,917 from 6,967 people.  So, hopefully, we'll be seeing many videos from her.
