Anita Sarkeesian’s Influences

I typically avoid discussing Anita Sarkeesian. I think she gets enough attention already. However, I think Sargon of Akkad’s recent video about Sarkeesian’s influences is relevant.

Sargon notes how much Bell Hooks influenced Sarkeesian, and he dissects the flaws in Hooks’s theories and position. And yes, I am aware Hooks prefers not to capitalize her name.
