Ryan Perez vs. Felicia Day
I do think that Ryan Perez could have looked up Felicia Day on Wikipedia before getting fired over questioning her contribution to the industry. I also do think that he shouldn't have put sexist remarks in his Twitter bio. Nevertheless I feel that over all the outcry some core point of his question has been lost: Would Felicia Day be as famous as she is if she wasn't that good-looking? To what degree is her fame based on creative contribution as script writer and producer to the industry, and to what degree is it based on male teenagers' hormones going wild when seeing her in the sexy Do You Want to Date my Avatar? music video?
