Tropes Vs Women in Video Games… vs YouTube?

The second of Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes Vs Women in Video Games went up online overnight… and then down again as idiots abused YouTube’s flag function to have it pulled. It’s back up again… for now.

In theory, you should be able to watch it above; as Kotaku notes, however, it’s already been pulled once by those abusing — and there’s no other word for it, this is abuse — YouTube’s content flagging system.
Sigh. I’d like to say I was surprised, and that we should collectively be better than this and open to differing discourses, but then, this is the Internet.
