Some nerds were so mad about that “sexism in video games” Kickstarter that they made a competing series to prove that somehow an industry almost entirely staffed by men that makes products intended for men is actually discriminatory against men. This is what happens when women try to voice their opinion on how society treats them: hordes of men feel unreasonably threatened and scramble around like idiots trying to bring the discourse back to a place where men are in complete control, either through harrassment and threats of violence or by making some garbage like this. If you hear anyone trying to pull this embarrassing bullshit, do your duty as a decent human being and rub some dog turds on their face and neck and maybe pee on them too

will be interesting if this does indeed turn into a proper analysis of masculinity in video games. Because there are some very prevalent tropes in games in terms of male characters. Of course they don’t suffer quite as badly as female characters do in terms of limited number portrayals and thus being pigeon holed into only a few types representations (femme fatale, fighting fuck toy, damsel in distress, woman as a prize).
I’ve done reports and essays on representations of masculinity in animation and in literature in school and university. If these guys are taking it seriously there are some things to be said. Hopefully they’re not just doing it to be contrary trolls.
