Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a YouTube video series examining gender tropes in video games. The series was financed via crowdfunding, and acquired notoriety when its Kickstarter campaign triggered a wave of sexist harassment against Sarkeesian.

When Sarkeesian raised nearly $160,000 using Kickstarter, there was an immediate backlash from members of the gaming and internet communities. Commenters on her YouTube and Facebook pages wrote hateful comments, threats of violence, and death threats.

On August 26th, Sarkeesian received a series of graphic threats [trigger warning: rape, violence, sexist slurs] as seen here.

Legend has it that if you leave your stack of pancakes unattended for too long the mythical Pancake Goblin will emerge and eagerly take advantage of your carelessness. Do not fear, pancake lovers, the Pancake Goblin is friendly! Never judge a book by its cover, they say. He just has an insatiable appetite for pancakes. Who could blame him?

Dennys what the fuck?
