Signal Boost: Misogyny, trolls, and video games, oh my

From HC:

Good news: Anita Sarkeesian received enough Kickstarter funding for her research project, a video series on videogame tropes about women.
Bad news: in addition to those positive responses to her proposal, she also received appallingly misogynistic hate speech, harassment, death and rape threats. Thousands of them. And some fairly serious sabotage (including numerous attempts to get her Kickstarter proposal flagged and taken down).

Read the article. Gack. I wish her the best.
