: Historically, in a male-dominated gaming industry, has the Damsel in Distress
trope been used over and over? You bet your ass it has! Would it be cool if developers continued to explore other stories in addition to those? Yes, it would! Does it sometimes make women feel uncomfortable to be oversexualized non-stop in the games that they play daily? Sure! And maybe that's something that you will never understand or even care about, but do they have a right to say something about it without being called a femenazi without
getting death threats or rape threats? Hell yes, they do
! And I'll defend their right to do it against anyone
. ... So take a breather and realize, it's perfectly fine for women to ask questions, to criticize pointless, exploitative material, and to look forward to more games that elevate their gender to more than just goals and objects to be won or saved, but into legitimate heroes in their own right. And after all that, if you still don't get it, bro, and you think she should die and every feminist with her, it's because, number one, you're a fuckin'
idiot. Number two, you couldn't give a shit about anyone but yourself. And number three, outside your mother
, you've never had to actually care about what other women think or feel, say a gamer girlfriend, or hell, in the future, your own daughter. Imagine that, and the games she'll play. And like it or not, more and more women are gamers, just like you and I.
