As a zombie, have you ever felt that you were being misrepresented in popular entertainment mediums? If so, this Kickstarter is for you.

EDIT: I thought I'd add some commentary of my own here since a number of people have claimed this is YouTube spam. I think it's important to look beyond the surface level 'lol zombies instead of women' to notice the underlying critique. For example, pointing out the fact that the author has been making the same videos promised in the Kickstarter for a long time already. It also clearly highlights the difference between a fictional representation of something for the sake of a deeper meaning, and a portrayal that's meant to mirror reality. The person who the video is parodying doesn't seem to understand this, see her commentary on 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

I've grown tired of this bashing of Anita Sarkeesian. I'm not bothered by it, just bored.

Bashing? No. Clever criticism wrapped in humor? Yes.

Very surface level observation, did you even watch it?

Spam would imply irrelevance, and I don't think it is, so maybe. Should it be in the off topic board?

@YOU_DIED:

It's YouTube spam, since you're just dropping a video onto the site with little to no accompanying text.

"5. NO Spam:  Includes but not limited to: promoting personal sites, making comments which have no discussion value such as "first" or "bump", quote pyramids or empty quoting, quest spam,YouTube spam , "chat" threads, and creating any threads with little to no text where off-site content is linked or embedded. This includes starting forum threads to promote your latest podcast or written review on another site. Also, replying to threads that have clearly been created by spam bots is just as bad as the spam itself. Simply notify a moderator about the spam and move on, do not reply to it!"

@YOU_DIED: there is literally nothing that hasn't been said about anita. It's old news, no one's going to have a change in opinion...

and how is that clever criticism? all those criticisms have been leveled at her already.

"Clever" does not imply total originality. I'm sorry if you don't think it's funny or novel, I won't hold it against you.
