Incidentally, in a hypothetical world where the prison population of women was exorbitantly higher, it would still probably be just male characters.
The people preaching realism now would more...

Ignoring that this requires giving them ten miles from a centimeter in terms of the benefit of the doubt?
Even if this were somehow true, it still fails as satire fundamentally. If it's not...
You're missing the point. You're letting things escalate to a point where the thread becomes unsalvageable and that basically means that it's easy for people to derail the narrative of a thread once...
There's a problem with this line of thinking.
It means that a derail is easy in terms of being a tool of covering the tracks of people who do perpetuate completely horrible beliefs. You can...
"What? We do NOT invalidate your feelings or emotions and turn characterized anger into a means of silencing and subduing legitimate reasons to be angry! Stop saying that!"
See, it's 0.5 instead of First...
Because it's discounted.

One day we need to make a game about rich assholes going on an island and ruining your shit.
Then the entire game is you killing them mercilessly.
Not to people with an extremely selfish and enclosed sense of reality.
And that's all that really matters, right?
I swear to god some people lack object permanence on a societal scale or...

Do you realize the kind of damage you'd do the economy if you were to do that, 'lano?!
...none. None whatsoever. Because it is worthless. :D
When men are put up as having "role models" that have unscalable expectations, it is usually to empower the male consumer with a fantasy. Doing it for female viewers/readers/whatever is...
Loot is a kind of drug.
Which will be literally always.

Sorry for the late response.
No, technically it isn't part of gaming as a baseline - but gaming having that stigma and that attachment to that kind of community is the exact sort of reason I would...

If gaming resonates strongly enough with someone, it could progress into being engrossed enough in the community that you get exposure to that kind of nonsense.
There are also the addictive...

It changes - awkwardly, usually slowly, sometimes going in a full cycle over an extended period of time - but mainstream change isn't completely impossible. It usually just takes certain generations...

I'm not sure where the difficulty is.
Gaming's subculture is saturated with a culture of hate, usually taking the form of misogyny and racism, and is often employed by the very same people who...

If you're not meeting every piece of enjoyment in your life with at least some scrutiny, alternative perspective, and attempts at improvement, you're doin' it wrong.

Didncha know? Serious gaming is an enriching and deceptively deep pastime that people just don't understand, man.
This is exactly why it's predominantly populated with entitled shits who can't...
I think that's "Dead Herald," actually.
DH, how exactly do you intend to argue against these depictions being harmful if your argument is going to be based around "yeah, but this is expected?"
The entire god damn point is that the...

Still so confident and full of self-efficacy. Dead Herald, do you ever cease with your positive energy and bright insight?
It's really more like "sex as it pertains to women sells" given it's almost exclusively females when that tired excuse is presented.
With this context, re-read the post.
"There's no such thing as the male gaze. You're just overanalyzing things.
Mmm, dat ass."
