Sexism in Anime Fandom at Otakon 2012: Watch the panel!

It is with great excitement and trepidation that I share this video with you. Filmed by Lawrence Brenner, it’s expertly edited to display each of our slides while we’re discussing it. Unfortunately, it has also preserved every nervous look and “uhm.” It’s a little painful for me to watch*, but you can bet I’ve been reviewing it in order to improve my speaking skills. Check it out below, and tell me what you think!

(Note: Lawrence had a busy schedule at the con, and didn’t make it to the panel until our fourth slide. The clip starts silently while it runs through our initial slides before breaking into video of our event.)

*Pro-tip: if you want to be taken seriously during an important presentation, wear cat ears.
