"It’s not just boys being boys. It’s not just how the Internet works. And it’s not just going to go away if we ignore it. It’s not just a game."

If you weren’t following the strange saga of Anita Sarkeesian’s Kickstarter, you should watch this video. If you’re not (yet) a fan of her “Feminist Frequency” series, you should watch this video. And frankly, even if you’re familiar with her work and with what happened when she proposed to do a series on “Tropes vs. Women in Video Games,” which I was, you should still watch this video. 

It’s a pretty fascinating breakdown on what happens in less-friendly corners of the Internet, and how trolls conduct themselves in an environment of relative anonymity and no accountability.
