Anti-Feminist Frequency pamphlets appear on poles around E3 convention

Letter-sized stickers appeared on traffic light poles around the convention center this morning, decrying Anita Sarkeesian, creator and host of the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games and Positive Female Characters in Video Games series.

The "Fem Freak" flyers stand in stark contrast to the typical advertising found around the convention center celebrating the upcoming release of anticipated video games.

The bottom of the flyer states "All Your Tropes Are Belong To Us Honey" and the background repeats the hashtag "GamerGate."

This year's E3 has seen a marked improvement in the representation of women in gaming, both in how they are treated in video games and how many have been involved in presenting games on stage, talking about them in interviews and playing them in demos.
