Skepchick Quickies 12.6
- Anita Sarkeesian at TEDxWomen – Anita talks about the harassment and threats she received in response to criticizing sexism in gaming. The video was put up on Tuesday and, you guessed it, the comments are already turned off due to harassment. (Full transcript at Feminist Frequency.)
- Wonder Women! The untold story of American superheroines – From Rosaire.
- Skepticism! The new miracle life cure – From Gemma.
- Evil Mr. Vaccine – In case you haven’t seen this Married to the Sea comic yet, from Ryan.
Oh no! The Pied Piper vaccine will kidnap our children! Evil! :)
That Married To The Sea was my desktop background about 10 seconds after I first saw it.
Love the super heroines documentary trailer. Can’t wait to watch it. Also, anything with Gloria Steinem is an immediate win for me.
I actually learned a lot about Wonder Woman, just from that trailer.
That was a great Ted talk
Anita Sarkeesian was named a gamer of the year for social change by Kotaku today. http://kotaku.com/gamers-of-the-year/
So far comments are ok, but the article’s recent. Most importantly, naming her is just the right choice on any such list this year I think.
Great news and – GO ANITA!!! I can’t help rooting for her. YEAH!!!
Anita Sarkeesian’s pretty dead cool. People batter her with a barrage of horribleness and she just keeps standing tall and being reasonable at them.
