We Interrupt this Broadcast for a Very Important Message

This man is not wrong, listen to him.

Ignorance is our greatest enemy, and trolls are among its footsoldiers. While they have many targets, women seem to have earned some special place in their warped little minds. The manner in which women are portrayed in games, comics, movies… well, all media, is very skewed, often to the point of perversity; is it any wonder trolls exist given the continued objectification of women in the media, and the anonymous license of the Internet? It is a sorry states of affairs (in more ways than one) when “dudes need to tell other dudes to stop making asses of themselves on the internet”.

Check out Feminist Frequency (which I have only recently discovered, and is mentioned in the above video), Skepchick, Greta Christina’s Blog and Escher Girls for a good start.
