kids and learning gender with feminist frequency

While I’m on the subject of genderized kids stuff, I wanted to share this awesome (and disturbing) video from Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency.  Anita regularly makes videos discussing feminism in relationship to pop culture, particularly movies and television.  Anita’s next proposed project is a series of videos about women in video games.  Can’t wait to see it.  I like to watch these little tidbits while I’m nursing Baby Pickles to keep the brain rot away.

What do you think?
