A new Tropes Vs. Women in Video Games installment hit the web on Monday, and with it came the requisite (in the oh-of-course sense, not the this-should-actually-happen sense) wave of backlash against creator Anita Sarkeesian. If you’re one of those people who gives Sarkeesian hell because “she’s just listing things you could find on Wikipedia!,” Joss Whedon thinks you’re missing the point. Which you are. Laying problematic issues of sexism in video games out for all to see is the stated purpose of the series.
