Re: Feminist Frequency's Tropes vs. Women

I agree that this video doesn't really cover any new ground and I would have liked her to highlight the few exceptions to the rule, but you know ... good on her. Sometimes it's necessary (and worthwhile) to state the obvious - kind of like acknowledging the elephant in the room. I don't see any real harm in the video (she seems rather reasonable and rational in her commentary - acknowledging that the trope, in isolation, isn't necessarily problematic but that its ubiquitous nature, is), so really, there's only an upside to having it out there to begin with.
