Anita Sarkeesian gives a talk at TEDxWomen about the vicious sexist harassment she suffered as a result of… wanting to make some YouTube videos.

Do take a few minutes to go and watch Anita’s videos, follow on Twitter and on Facebook.

When people wonder why I haven’t yet added comments functionality to my site, it’s because of shit like this.
