Sexism in game culture is back in the spotlight. As seen in the comment section of Carolyn Petit's recent review of GTA 5 and, of course, the hate spewed toward Anita Sarkeesian's Feminist Frequency, there is a strong undercurrent of anti-woman sentiment that has surfaced in the gamer community. Why? Because there are those who believe that women can never be "true gamers." But there are those that are fighting back!!! So does that make Anita a video game Rosa Parks? Watch the episode to find out!
