Damsels In Distress

Nerdluster: Anita Sarkeesian has been working for almost a year to expand upon her Tropes vs. Women web series with new content that focuses on video games.

Quit giving attention to this person,she does nothing productive.

Ignoring her is not really an option for someone who keeps their ear to the ground of the gaming industry. Even if what she says is just her opinion the traction she's getting and the criticism she's receiving is enough to make it a newsworthy topic.

What would you suggest I do? Should I ignore it and pretend as though it doesn't exist? Her video has close to 900,000 views right now and it's just growing, to ignore it seems ignorant for a writer & commentator.

Why did people give her 150k to make videos?

From what I gather it was mostly about being able to deliver the content without advertisements. When it comes to opinion and social issues advertisers tend to get squeamish.
