Damsel in Distress - How Video Games exploit Women
Anita Sarkeesian is a feminist who warns people of the danger of video games. As a feminist she is perpetually angry about everything. And this includes 1980s video games such as Mario Brothers. It seems that Mario Brothers is a misogynist game designed to perpetuate the Patriarchy or some such thing. Personally, I just found it to be a fun game. But a feminist can always see politics in everything.
Her latest video was released on August 1, 2013. It is part of an epic series on the evils of video games.
Her rant on Mario Brothers starts at 11:15.
