People i need 150K to watch lets play videos so i can give a biased opinion why videogames portray women badly, without even having to buy or play them my self.

Sarkeesian is a fraud and a con artist just like Susan Wilson who threw her sons under the bus for 25k. A fool and their money is easily parted.

She didn't need, she got that amount while asking for only 6k.

Don't get me wrong, certainly not defending her and its pitiful the rate she turns out bias videos considering the bump in funding, but what she got isn't what she asked for.

Again, its just shameful that as little effort seems to be going into the project. Worse is that she might have the never to use this news as example of being persecuted.

Well she made damn sure to play the damsel in distress and use Gender issues to exceed the kickstarter goal.

It wouldn't bother me if someone were to use my Let's Play videos if they asked to use it in their own video to show a scene or a glitch or something like that just don't upload the whole thing claim it as your own. I don't think it was completely terrible of her to use other people's videos but she should have asked or gave credit to the YouTube channel's.
