Tropes vs. Women: The Damsel in Distress Part 2

Steven here…

Anita Sarkeesian is just plain awesome. She’s just put out part 2 of 3 in her series on the “Damsel in Distress” trope.

What I love about this series is that it could have been done as “look at how shitty gaming is” and given how many gamers have treated her, that would have been an entirely understandable response. But instead, the message is “Gaming can be bigger and better than it is.” As a gamer, I hope that game developers are paying attention to her.

I write a lot of jokes. Some of them are in this book.
I also host the podcast of the Skepchick events team, Some Assembly Required, and cohost the WWJTD Podcast.
You can also follow me on Facebook or that bird thing.
