The sexism in games debate, Auto-tuned

20 Sep

Jonathan Mann’s “Are Video Games Sexist?” Auto-tune rebuttal is fantastic. It’s catchy and amusing — except for the screenshots of hate tweets near the end of the video — but it also is a good little primer in how to think critically about an argument that could seem persuasive on the surface, but is actually a horribly constructed, scattershot opinion piece. If the woman in the video wrote her script as an analytic essay for a composition course, it would be returned slashed with red for a rewrite. (tip of the hat to The Mary Sue)
