I criticize the Nostalgia Chick (web show cited by Feminist Frequency) from a feminist perspective. I dislike how the boundaries between the actor Lindsay Ellis and her character are indistinct, making the feminist commentary blend in with the Nostalgia Chick character's evil personality. I also take issue with the plethora of rape jokes displayed in the show. Finally, I don't like Lindsay making a joke about a random female character attacking a man because of patriarchy hurting women. The better feminist on that site (That Guy With The Glasses) is male feminist Linkara.
I intended to make this video just after my criticism of Feminist Frequency, but I'm lazy and made it over a year later.
