A Bunch Of Sad, Insecure Dudes Attacked A Woman And Everyone Got What They Deserved

http://www.upworthy.com/a-bunch-of-sad-insecure-dudes-attacked-a-woman-and-everyone-got-what-they-deserv?g=2&fb_source=feed&ref=feed&refid=7&_ft_=qid.5821858773152070501%3Amf_story_key.546167492077219

When Anita Sarkeesian announced plans to do a video series exploring the portrayal of women in video games, she became the victim of a massive online attack choreographed by members of the gaming community who cast her as the "villain" in their online "game" to ruin her life. It did not go well for them. But for Anita, things ended up going very well indeed.

You definitely want to watch the whole thing, but here are some highlights: at 1:00 she talks about why she loves video games, at 2:02 just try to imagine yourself in her shoes, at 3:45 she sticks the people attacking her under a microscope, and at 8:15 she doesn't just win the game, she absolutely destroys it.

1. Glad to see this posted.

I viewed it a couple of days ago and part way through began to think about the similarities with our recent disruptions in Meta.

2. Bravo

This is one of the most positive and upbeat messages on anything anywhere that I've seen in weeks.




Please take a bow.
