I quasi-followed her career after that, discovering shortly after her Bill Maher stints that she was a comedienne. She did some work on the improv nearly-a-game-show "Who's Line Is It Anyway?"
She seemed like she would be a natural feminist. And with a little research I found she was one. But her advocacy was in the area of gaming. I admit that made me blink more than once. Not that this area doesn't need some serious feminist attention. I still remember seeing my 3 year old nephew win his race car game and watching his avatar get a kiss from this sleezy half-dressed hooker-looking chick.
My sister-in-law played every game he got before he did after she saw that.
So I'm glad Aisha has her eye on cleaning up gaming.
"[After] being invited to host the 2012 E3 press conference, [some] were not so pleased. In typical troll fashion, she received a ton of comments complaining that she knew nothing about gaming. Tyler responded to her haters on Facebook in a perfect takedown of their "complaints."

Her Views On Sexual Harassment
"Men need to speak up when they see harassment, either online or in the real world. Period. Just imagine that this woman is your girlfriend, mother or sister. Would it be okay for someone to treat one of them the way they are treating the woman in front of you? If you can find a way to empathize by relating to the women you care about, it quickly becomes clear that this behavior is unacceptable. And men are more likely to respond to the comments and scrutiny of other men when they are harassing women, as they can't dismiss their disapproval as gender-motivated. It doesn't have to be a speech. Just a simple, "Dude. Not cool." can make someone reexamine their behavior."
