Anita Sarkeesian is an interesting guide into the world of unconscious cultural assumptions and beliefs. I will say that it can be uncomfortable to have your subconscious reference points dragged out and examined but for a person interested in better understanding themselves and the world around them it is a necessary experience.

Below is the most recent video Tropes vs Women in Video Games: Damsels in Distress
