Hags of Lag – Youtubes, Escapist and Anita Sarkeesian

I know I covered Thunderfoot’s take on Anita Sarkeesian’s Damsel in Distress video and why I thought his arguments were pointless, but the Escapist’s Critical Miss explains the gripe in a much more succinct way.

Hags of Lag/A Voice for Me – Not a Second Sarkeesian

The backstory is “here” as is the Kickstarter. It’s a 9 year old girl wanting to go learn how to make games because “games are for boys” didn’t sit too well with her. So she started a fundraiser to go to a Camp to learn to make games. But you know how the Internet is. …
