One other note: within 1 hour of the video being posted to YouTube, it was spammed with false violation-of-copyright claims by people who wanted to silence Ms. Sarkeesian’s ideas.¬† This is a sadly-predictable tactic – many people do not like hearing about how their actions enable and perpetuate bigotry, and would rather lie and harass than re-think their actions.
