Added DiffLines:

** The fifteenth video discusses two tropes that are implications of MenAreStrongWomenArePretty: OnlyOneFemaleMold and MenGetOldWomenGetReplaced. Sarkeesian discusses how male characters are allowed to have a variety of builds, body shapes and ages, while female characters are usually young and slim to fit the ideal beauty standard.

*** The second focuses on more modern games and the trope's combination with other tropes for a DarkerAndEdgier twist. Murdering the hero's wife and forcing him to rescue his daughter combines the DamselInDistress with StuffedIntoTheFridge. Some combine the two (called by Sarkeesian, "Damsel In The Fridge") by getting the hero to rescue the murdered wife's soul (usually from hell), and some have the twist of getting the hero to [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption murder her himself]] at the end of the game to rescue her from mutilation or just to get at the villain, sometimes with her begging to be freed (combining it with MercyKill, called by Sarkeesian "Euthanized Damsel"). She then places the games' violence against women in the context of reality, focusing on the fact that the final combination rationalizes violence against a woman for her own good and the fact that this is a rationalization often used in abusive relationships.

** The thirteenth video is about "Lingerie is not Armor," focusing on the ways female characters get sexualized in situations that make little sense, the ridiculous nature of the ChainmailBikini, and the the linkage of sexualization to female characters' power. Sarkeesian also discusses the ways that video game developers can prioritize realistic combat or athletic attire over JigglePhysics, and the rare examples of female characters expressing non-sexualized sexual desire.
** The fourteenth video focuses "Female Combatants" and the question "[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity Are Women Too Hard to Animate?]]" Sarkeesian discusses how violence against some female combatants is gendered, while other violence is not, and the reluctance on the part of developers to include women fighters in games.

Added DiffLines:

** The ninth video is about the concept of "Women as Reward," with a focus on several {{Troperiffic}} examples of {{Fanservice}}. These include cinematics with StandardHeroReward, SmoochOfVictory, and RescueSex; EasterEggs that result in topless or otherwise sexual scenes, characters, or events; unlockable [[VirtualPaperDoll costumes]] which overlap with FetishFuel and ChainmailBikini; moments where sex or sexualized interaction rewards players with ExperiencePoints or an increase to LifeMeter or SprintMeter; [[CollectionSidequest Collection Sidequests]] involving {{Fanservice}}; and [[AchievementSystem achievements]] for sex, having sex with multiple women, ogling female characters, or sexual interactions with nonconsenting female characters. Sarkeesian discusses the way these tropes reinforce a feeling of entitlement to women's sexuality, as with the behavior of cat callers.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': She approves of it but hasn't gone into detail why. Although she has expressed disappointment in the idea of Equestria being a monarchy, especially in light of [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle ascending to the throne.]]

* OrwellianEditor: Shortly after some rather intense and legitimate criticisms were made on the Tropes vs. Women video series -- addressing such problems as sexist double standards regarding male vs. female nudity, male vs. female deaths, and in one case a supported and established instance where Sarkeesian quite literally had to violate the rules of the game she was playing in order to show how "migosynyst" it was by intentionally killing a pair of innocent female bystanders that she was penalized for murdering by the game itself -- those criticisms mysteriously vanished and anyone asking about them was permanently banned from commenting on any of Sarkeesian's videos.
** Sarkeesian has done the same thing to all references to the accusations of embezzlement (based on the fact that, too date, the video series has used only a fraction of the funds raised and yet Sarkeesian had to start a second fund-raiser to finish the series, combined with Sarkeesian herself suddenly moving into a much nicer apartment, dressing in much nicer clothing, and driving a much nicer car; make of that what you will). Sarkeesian isn't denying these charges, protesting them, or issuing any sort of denial. She's merely making all references to it vanish into the ether as if they never happened. For many people, this is as good as an admission.
