Backlinking Campaign for Anita Sarkeesian references, if you have any good links, bomb the comments:
- Feminist Frequency - About
- Kickstarter - "Tropes vs. Women in Video Games"
- Wired - "Feminist Take on Games Draws Crude Ridicule, Massive Support"
I'm not generally a big fan of twitter or other social media hawking of anything of value, in particular my opinion. So rather than participate directly in the screaming and parsing and advocating and paternalism, here's a dose of my normal kind of broad support. Similar to Santorum Awareness Day, just as you should know what Santorum is (it might save your life), you should get a real feel for what this whole divisiveness was about.
I chose an explanation of Ms. Sarkeesian's primary project (tropes vs. women, etc), the Kickstarter that kick started it all (totally funded), and a brief summary of the events since. Please note that it's not only important to straighten out and shore up Google, but it's important to shine a light on the actual work she's been doing.
I encourage any readers (wherever they may; twitter, facebook, blogs, whatever) to backlink to the first two and third unless you find better articles or ones that are better suited to the way you support her work and her steadfastness.
Comment Moderation is my policy (please no bullshit about Nike Air Maxes, Frank Ocean, or UFC 148), but I should be all over it today;
- If you find good links to summaries, post them in the comments!
- If you know of a great collection of resources that support the work of elucidating tropes, post them in the comments!
- Feel like putting a youtube embed of femfrequency in the comments? I think they support that, if not link to it!
- So I'm sure my site isn't big enough to do all the lifting, is yours? Post a comment to your blog if you're doing a backlinking effort! (Just include a femfreq link as well for your cert)
