Feminist Frequency’s lack of content spurs angry reddit thread
Right around the end of the SGC Kickstarter, Anita Sarkeesian was trying to Kickstart her own project, a new study concerning Tropes vs Women in Video Games. This started as a $6,000 Kickstarter that quickly into a $150,000 giant. Due to the overwhelming success, the project evolved from five videos to thirteen and now has both a writer and producer working alongside Anita.
While there have been a few updates exclusively for backers, it has been about 7 months since the Kickstarter finished and about 2 months since the first piece of content, “Damsels in Distress”, was originally planned to be available. Without any public update, the cyber mob has returned via a reddit post questioning what Anita Sarkeesian has done with the money.
With the backers getting regular updates, it seems like the random Internet user’s rage may be unfounded, though standing next to a stack of games isn’t helping to quell the beast. We reached out to Feminist Frequency for comment and received the following.
So everyone just cool your jets and hopefully you non-backers will receive an update soon. In the meantime, here is a TED talk she gave last month.
