Re: Feminist Frequency's Tropes vs. Women

I just watched the episode and it was as to be expected for a first episode. She describes the Damsel in Distress trope and then provides examples of this trope in many famous video games. Zelda, Pauline, and Peach get the most focus for obvious reasons.

She did her research and presented the information well, but seeing as how the episode was more or less a list of examples that I already knew about there isn't much for me to say about it. Regardless, it was a good episode and I look forward to the later episodes when she will most likely go more in-depth.
I would not expect a lot of depth from these. Her videos are generally Feminist 101 stuff, and they are directed at people who may know little or nothing of women's issues. If you expect them to get into, say, intersectionality and so forth, you will probably be disappointed. She is trying to reach people who either don't think about this stuff or know very little about it, not those already aware of the issues.

Of course, the response she gets from the people she's trying to reach might make her efforts seem futile.
Five stars!
