I found these videos today an already went through 5 of them!

The topics she addresses include portrayal of women in video games and issues with toys advertised towards girls. If you are a fan of video games, the Ms. male character and damsel in distress videos are excellent. The Lego ones address issues in how Legos are advertised toward boys and girls.

Some of her videos are good and spot on. However her videos about women in video games are often incorrect or misconceptions.

I thought she made some good points like when she said men are the "default" while women are the "variation". I'd never given it any thought before but she's right.

Any specifics? The ones I watched were pretty good. I think though along with many things in feminism, they are up for discussion and not everyone will agree on certain aspects.
