Feminism vs. Video Games - Refuting Anita Sarkeesian & "Damsel in Distress: Part 3"

Response to:

This is a video response to youtube user Anita Sarkeesian aka "FeministFrequency" and her third video in a series of videos on video games entitled "Damsel in Distress Part 3 -- Tropes vs Women in Video Games."

Feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian makes a lot of bold statements regarding the gaming industry. As someone who doesn't necessarily call himself a gamer, I try to take Anita to task and, unlike her disabling comments and ratings in the description of her videos, I welcome the debate and discussion on the gaming industry, but I can't see how the gaming industry is inherently sexist. In fact, the only thing Anita advocates for is what SHE wants to happen for HER benefit.
