QotD: “Women as Reward

The latest video from Feminist Frequency:

What is particularly gross about the misogyny Sarkeesian documents, is the way pornography (specifically the Playboy brand) has embedded itself into the mainstream; several video games are shown to have Playboy magazines as in-game objects to collect, or even as practical objects to utilize (from approx. the 19min mark).

If you are not too interested in video games, you can skip to the 25min mark where Sarkeesian explains really well why this matters.
