Are video games sexist?
No, no they’re not. Since I was a child I have grown up playing games, I watched my father and brother play them, I played them with my sisters and my friends. I wouldn’t call myself a hardcore gamer nor do I want to be, but I am a female who plays Xbox daily.
Just because something doesn’t appeal to a certain woman, does that make it sexist? By their logic, things that averagely appeal to females like makeup, barbie dolls, princess movie are sexist too.
I am sitting down with a random selection of my own games, PS, Xbox and PC, so I’ll start with one of my old school favourites.
Ah yes, the fighting game we all know and love. As if you don’t know where I’m going with this. We have nina, June, Michelle, Anna, angel. The feminists only argument when given these facts were that the women are dressed too sexy, so that men will play them. I suppose these same men are also attracted to the numerous topless, incredibly ripped male characters too, hmm? I will also remind you about mortal ccombat, a very similar game that has Sonya, kitana and more. Gender. Neutral. Yes ✔
As I’m halfway through this game already, I can tell you that this game is brilliant and in no way shaped for men. If you’re into adventure, medieval, fighting games where you can use magic, kill dragons and shit this game is for you. You can be nord (human), a range of elves, orcs, khajiit (cat person), argonian (lizard person) and guess what? All this variety comes in not one BUT TWO genders!!!
That isn’t even the best part. If you play the game you’ll notice how gender neutral it actually is. There is a side character, with almost no importance to the game, her name is. Adrianne- Or her nickname, the war maden. She is known for building armor and weapons while her husband tends to the shop, named after herself. “war maden”. Let us not forget Astrid, the leader of the dark brotherhood. Yes, a woman runs the BROTHERHOOD! what a fucking shocker. Feminists see the word brother and literally go into a fit of rage over it.
I can go on and on about the bad ass women in skyrim, such as Lidia who you, as a female character are able to marry but I have more points to make. Skyrim, gender neutral? YES ✔
Call of duty
One of my all time favourites, I have played ghosts online recently and can play as a female. To be fair you don’t see your character until you die or on loading screen, so if it’s a fucking issue that you had to play as a man before, you seriously need a new hobby, because that’s a pathetic thing to be offended over. Other call of duty games have included female characters in the story line and while you had a specific character to play as in campaign, that is because it wasn’t written for feminists to enjoy, it was written for gamers to enjoy. The story lines suck you in and just because the game is violent, doesn’t mean it appeals to only men. Call of duty, gender neutral ✔
Left for dead 2
While I don’t own the first one, I love the second game. Not only is there a spunky female character, who is also a p.o.c, with the same name as me. It is a pretty kickass zombie game. If you’re not into zombie games, that doesn’t mean it is sexist. I have always only ever played as the female character, because her name is awesome. Left for dead 2, gender neutral! ✔
Once again, I haven’t played the other skate games, but I happen to know that you can play as a female character in this game, because I do. Literally just a skateboarding game where you get points for tricks. Women love skating and if you consider it a man sport then you’re sexist to these womem. Skate 2, gender neutral ✔
Never played it because it doesn’t appeal to me, how SEXIST of this game to not appeal to my wants. Wrong. Lara croft is fucking awesome, if feminists have a problem with the way she is dressed, I suggest stop admiring the movies, actresses and singers like Angelina Jolie, the Kardashian’s, Miley Cyrus and all the other self exposing bitches. Tomb raider, gender neutral. Yes ✔
Have I played this game? Not really. I do however know about it. It is about a woman, violet summer, a British spy during ww2 who crosses enemy lines to assassinate soldiers. Pretty bad ass if you ask me. Velvet assassin gender neutral, yes✔
Moving onto my PC games, there are some that are purely based around female characters.
Alice, madness returns.
A twisted, dark, steampunk version of ‘Alice in wonderland’. You can only play as Alice, it has an evil man villan, but of course it’s a strategy game that includes violence so it must only be for men. Wrong. If you like gaming you like gaming, whether or not you play as a man or woman. Alice, as psychological as it is, was a pretty great game. Alice madness returns gender neutral, yes ✔
The Sims is as gender neutral as any game. The Sims 4 has new updates that have not only fucked my game, but have confused my Sims. They have men, women or trans options. You can cross dress your sim, change their gender and more! This is as liberal and feminist approved as it gets. Just wait for the other 60 genders to be added! If games like COD, skyrim or even the typical zombie game don’t appeal to you, find a game that does. The Sims, gender neutral yes✔
These are only very few out of hundreds of games that appeal to any gender and most ages. I’m sure you’re smart enough to realise there are games that both genders can enjoy as long as they’re into that genre. The only people making gaming sexist, are the feminists, by implying that just because something is made a certain way, it only appeals to men. These are games I own, have played and gotten full enjoyment out of!!!
Can the feminists go back to helping women, and stop shitting on men now? Can they please stop trying to destroy everything fun? Put your petty crap aside and focus on real issues.
I won’t sit by, and have women speak on my behalf, telling me what I can and can’t enjoy as a female. I enjoy whatever the Fuck I want to. ✔✔✔
Also, completely irrelevant, but considering 99% of feminists claim to be attracted to other women, why do you all look like men and get sex changes to become men… Just get a decent man. If these women in video games, and their appearances offend you so much, you are certainly not attracted to women sexually anymore then you have any form of emotional control.
Now if you’ll excuse me, me and my sexy man fiance are going to smash some COD.
