things fake dude gamers say
- we need to go back to the roots of gaming and stop trying to make games for everyone
- there are no queer video game characters
- representation in video games doesn’t matter because everyone who plays them are all just like me
- my video games are art but i don’t want them to be critiqued as if they’re a piece of art because it’s also just a game
hello yes, I would like to purchase one night stand.
“ Twilight has problems with misogyny and with abusive relationships. I don’t want to sugar-coat that. But if you, dear reader, are going around saying that Twilight is proof that girls are all stupid-heads who want a brooding vampire to stalk and abuse them, then you are being misogynistic.
In all my years of life, I have never heard anyone seriously speculate that the popularity of femme fatales in fiction means that all men secretly yearn for an abusive relationship; yet in the time since Twilight was released, I have heard the meme that all girls wish to be abused more times than I can count. This is a failure of understanding the difference between fantasy and reality, and it is a “failure” that conveniently props up existing misogynistic narratives about how women who stay with abusers stay because they secretly want to be abused rather than because they are groomed (by both their abuser and the larger society) to stay with their abuser, and because society does not empower them to leave. This is a comforting lie we tell ourselves because it’s easier to blame abuse victims than acknowledge that we are failing them. ”
This, and ditto for “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
