Anonymous said: Why are so many people demanding AAA titles to be all feminist and stuff when women don't even buy those games?
The long and the short of it is… because they do. Let’s explore that thought a bit with some actual research, hm?
Women don’t want to play as male protagonists: Understandable
Men don’t want to play as female protagonists: Misogyny
Jesus fucking Christ, the stupidity is overwhelming.
There’s some awful important context you’re missing here, in your quest to completely misrepresent people’s positions. It’s not “understandable” that women don’t want to play as male protagonists. No one is suggesting that, because no one is suggesting that women can’t identify with male characters. But it IS understandable that women don’t want to play as male protagonists every fucking time.
Similarly, no one is suggesting it’s “misogyny” for a man to want to play as a male character rather than a female one. But it likely IS a result of misogyny when men refuse to identify with women ever and require characters to be male every fucking time.
See that? Context. You should give it a try sometime. Maybe before the next time you attempt to accuse others of stupidity and hypocrisy without understanding what’s actually going on.
Except that A. There’s tons of games with female leads and B. If feminists had it their way, there would be no male protagonists. Thankfully, they’ll never get their way.
Speaking of “context”, congrats on using “misogyny” out of context, tool box.
Except that: A) I don’t know what you consider “tons,” but it sounds like you’re suggesting that it’s “enough,” which it certainly isn’t. By most counts, only 1-3% of all game leads are women. If that sounds like “tons” to you, in a world where over half the population, and nearly half the population of gamers are female, you are alone. And wrong. And B) literally no woman or feminist has ever, ever, ever advocated for the bullshit position you’re putting forth here. Not one person, not one time. But I guess there’s no need to let reality and facts stand in the way of your ignorance and toxicity. Your kind never does.
