Top Ten Reasons Feminists Need to Leave the Video Game Industry AloneTherandom I love video games, but those idiotic feminists are targeting it.
The Top Ten
You don't see men trying to tear down buff guy characters.
It's the company's, not theirs. - Therandom
Lol stupid feminazis are here too
No such thing as a feminazi that's just name calling.
Saying females can't like video games is just the same as Christianity hates homosexuals, bisexuals, transgender, and transvestites.
Actually only 4% more men play video games than women so it's not as much of a disparity to make this an important note. Also shouldn't feminists be concerned about the video game industry if more men play video games than women, which falls in line with video game marketing pandering mostly to boys considering the statistics? - Erucu
Stupid feminists, realize this. - Therandom
Many females play video games as well. I agree with you though.
Oh so that's why I had to play with a Gameboy!
I actually don't think it's a big deal if there's some females in a mostly male game. The problem is creators have to be careful not to stereotype males or females. Both genders get exaggerated quite a bit in some video games, and in other games, they don't. I don't really care what gender characters are... - Turkeyasylum
Nor do I, that's the point I'm trying to make. But some feminists don't comprehend that. - Therandom
It's true, we play more games. - Therandom
In the early games design, the games were unisex and made for families to enjoy, and there were more female game developers at that time. When Nintendo start marketing their games, instead of putting it in the electronic section, they wanted to sell their games at the toy aisle, they choose the boy section, and marketed to them, and the other brands start doing the same thing.
So there probably aren't many games, or as many games for women as there are for men because of the old fashion marketing even though there are a lot of female gamers who love video games. This does answer to why there are more male protagonists, and it's not because there are more male gamers, but because of what started it. There probably would've been more female protagonists if games were marketed for women at the start.
Everyone loves games, and not everyone has to like every games since there are like different categories for age, gender, and interest. Guys can like their sexualized female ...more
I agree. But sadly, there are gals are so obsessed with feminism that they act all macho about it, which is pathetic. And it's ironic that there are feminists who claim to hate macho guys but behave macho themselves. If that isn't hypocritical, I don't know what is.
I can do weight-lifting, judo - I'm female.
Next they'll be going "HEY, MEN HAVE PENISES, WHY DON'T WE?! "...
I'm sorry, that was crude. Still calling it, though. - mattstat716
Women are equal in the USA at least. - LordDovahkiin
Men bash everything only for women.
untrue - Erucu
Yes you do let me think most of the pop music in the charts, Twilight books/films, I'm not a fan of it also 50 shades of grey, television talent shows have many female fans.
I'm not a Feminist but everyone on the internet seems to think they are scum.
Feminazis who get offended by sexy women in games (who are actual characters, mind you, them being a sex object and nothing else is usually kind of boring) are usually fat slobs who are so far from attractiveness that a female with redeeming qualities is "offensive".
Some can actually be hot
I think they should stick to real life problem instead of video games. - Delgia2k
This doesn't really bother me much, mostly since my favorite video game franchise(Kirby) has a protagonist whose gender I'm not even sure of. - Garythesnail
Violence isn't actually a requirement. Just being a good game is enough. - MKBeast
What about the blatant sexism in hard rock and indie rock? - Erucu
Or rap. - mattstat716
Princess, damsel, wears pink, not playable, etc are just as valid character types as those that are playable, scantily clad, tomboyish if not butch, and (the most overused and now meaningless word on this whole site) badass.
