>throw temper tantrums when females get sexualized outfits

do sjw not see the hypocrisy?
>implying they're not trying to appeal to gays in general
who the fuck designs that sort of costume and thinks it's befitting of a warrior?
This is literal homo pandering at it's finest, and it's working.
Only other one I have because I'm not a completely gay and it's more comical.
You're the one here throwing temper tantrum for women getting something that resembles equal treatment.
Put down the mouse and go outside.
I bet you think SJWs are actually outside protesting and calling for every man's severed testicles on a silvery platter.
The industry is clearly biased against women.
Unless you can cite an individual booing sexualized women then cheering sexualized men it's not hypocritical.
It's like someone going to /pol/ and seeing posters say they don't like trannies then they go to /lgbt/ and see people like trannies then saying lol 4chan is hypocrites
First NPC you meet is highly sexualized in Morrowind.
Why isn't this game banned

ITT: This thread
Posting this on your mac after getting your Yacht did we?
Can anyone link the full video? I see this clip all the time and its just so fucking strange.
Why did they zoom in fast like that?
I could see if it was a comedy show but it seems like its just the regular news.
Holy shit, this place really has gone to shit.
You have your own chan now, shitlord.
So I get that women can feel like they don't get a fair shake in a lot of things. Fine. Cool that they wanna vocalize and work towards a common goal. But why is it that men are demonized? Why white men? Why straight men? Does being a fruit suddenly make me a better person? Does having black skin suddenly make me less likely to be a cunt? If i'm a girl am I somehow less capable of being a shitter than a man?
All these guys are false flaggers from 8gag right?
Haha great joke guys keep it up
what's so bad about white males? i'm korean and they are the best next to other asians (however, not all asians and i would rather take caucasian males over a lot of other asians). they are professional, have good stature, and are pretty alpha. is it just video game caucasian males that are such pussy faggots?
That's just a sexy, short haired female elf. Nothing about that resembles Link. It's just tryign to trick people into feeling uncomfortable.
>Waaaahhh I'm illogical how dare people point it out
Fuck off MRA faggot
Men are not demonized. You are simply misjudging the whole feminist movement based on a series of misandrist bad eggs. I'd love to have a serious discussion if you disagree.
no, actual feminists and these SJW girls are different and should not be categorized together. see how /v/ doesn't touch actual feminists because they haven't done much wrong?
You realize most people don't have a problem with women being treated fairly, equal pay, etc. It's the fact that these loud crazy bitches are waiving that feminism banner and that no other level headed feminist has the balls to speak out against them.
And if they do they're unfortunately drowned out by the wave of crazy.
>there are people actually gay for link
I bet you guys play elf healers in MMO games.
The whole sjw and feminist rhetoric is exclusively based on hypocrisy.
You can see this in the highly feminist infested websites like Buzzfeed, where they will post an article like "20 times 'Meninists' looked like fucking idiots" or "30 times a man told a woman she was pretty and she told that rape enabling creep to fuck off"...then the very next "article" is "40 times Nick Jonas looked like a hot piece of meat".
Or you can see this even on places like tumblr or Facebook where fat acceptance is at an all time high with the motto: "Healthy at all sizes". But what they really mean is "Healthy at all sizes...unless you're skinny or in shape".
It's fucking maddening. My anti-feminist gf and I had a long and satisfying talk about this the other night. It gives me hope that there are a lot of women who think like her. It's not that she's against equality, most normal women (and young males) are egalitarians. Feminists aren't for "equality" like they vehemently push, they're for bringing men down as far as they can. The hypocrisy knows no bounds.
He's /fa/ as fuck in this costume. I would legit wear that outfit for sports if there was a little more room in the crotch area. Just a little. Winter makes me miss playing outside instead of hardcore video games :-(
I always play the cutest boy and the most supportive role.
please for the love of god keep posting gay links. it's actually less gay than any of this gamergate/sjw bullshit
>Link peeing himself
Why did I come into this thread
What do you want?
This isn't a card carrying group with official membership and leadership.
If some 4channer does something stupid it's not my duty or responsibility to condone the action. If someone at my job gets arrested don't look at me for a statement.
That's the fucking postman from Majoras mask
>this picture is for the boy at the party that called me a beached whale
AYY LMAO. fuck gamergate, social justice warriors and feminists the same though, they're truly the worst people on the internet
This outfit doesn't even seem that sexual. It's fucking shorts and a tank top I wear that at the gym. But I want more games where everyone is sexualized. Let me dress up as a slutboy
Yes, they are different and yes they shouldn't be categorised together.
However, it's for feminists to decide who and who wont speak for their cause.
Any external group who gets involved immediately puts themselves up for scrutiny.
I apologise, but it's not and never was /v/'s fight.
This Samus costume wasn't sexual either. You can literally see women wearing this at the gym every day and it got called out as sexist, misognystic, pandering and every other buzzword you can think of.
>I want to smear you in green paint and spank you like a disobedient avocado
Telling fat people they look beautiful and healthy is like calling downies "special". It's just something out of pure pity, and i can never see how someone can be genuinely glad for those people. It's just feelgood bullshit.
It's not sexist for a woman to do it because the woman actively chooses to put that on and wear it out in public, understanding what she might have to face because of it. She might be choosing to sexualise herself but since she makes the decision she is aware of her actions and consequences.
>contrast that with
Samus is a digital graphical representation of a woman, so 'she' doesn't get to pick what she wears, how she stands ect. It might not make it sexual, but there's still a substantial grey area on what context this Samus outfit was created in.
Because /v/ likes twinks which are just inferior men. If you're going to like males go all the way or go home you faggots. Nothing is hotter than sticking your dick in a lumberjack
>something that isn't real can't make decisions for itself.
Well, shit. When designing a character of the opposite gender lets make them robots who wear burkas.
Take your "lack of agency" arguments and get the fuck out of here.
anon finding himself
>"im not full gay"
yes you fucking are stop denying it
I'm the serious question guy.
My mom worked to put food on our table when my dad tore most of the muscles in his arm. I fully accept women can work just as hard as man and vice versa, with certain tasks being obviously better suited to one over the other. I wouldn't hire a petite woman to bounce at my nightclub and I wouldn't hire a gruff ex-con to work as my receptionist.
But I keep hearing about how i'm bad for being what I can't change. It's ciswhtemale this, or white male oppressor that. I just find it odd because for the most part, I notice that even where I live no one really gives a shit what you are or do so long as you're paying taxes and buying local goods.
Well if they could then there wouldn't be any problem.
The problem arises in that because it's a manufactured representation of a human it means whatever she is dressed in becomes fair game for people to discuss wether or not it's appropriate/sexual/targeting one gender over the other ect
must be awful hard to get a stable point made on that slippery slope argument you're trying to stand on.
It's mostly just the hypocrisy that makes people resent the sjws at this point. Virtually all of them are extremely affluent cis white people, yet say ridiculous things like #KillAllWhites and treat non-whites like they are helpless children who aren't even intelligent enough to understand their own struggle.
who gets to decide what is and isn't appropriate?
what exactly is wrong with human sexuality?
>targeting one gender over the other
you'll never be able to pander equally to both genders
sorry, i mean ALL genders :^)and there's absolutely nothing wrong with targeting the majority demographic - that's called business
>but since she makes the decision she is aware of her actions and consequences.
Then how come every other woman whines about street harassment? Oh, right, they just want to do whatever they want without having to face the consequences.
>'she' doesn't get to pick what she wears, how she stands ect.
so what? She's a fictional character, an object, an avatar for the player to interact with the game's world, not a real human being. What she wears or not is up for her creators to choose. Whether she dresses as a turbo slut or as the most conservative christian of the world doesn't matter. It's not going to affect society's view of women, or uphold any beauty standards, because, as much as you'd like to believe otherwise, it's real, living people that settle those things.
Do you honestly think normies care about how much a fictional character is sexy? Even when they do think that these characters are sexy, they consider people who find 2D to be as attractive as 3D as "losers".
They care about the real people on TV, magazine covers and movie screens. They don't give a single shit about the women in video games, cartoons or comic books.
>im probably more stable than the chair youre sitting on right now
holy shit i fucking exploded at that
I'd say they are still being racist, and sexist, and transphobic, but the clique they belong to simply deems it alright in that situation.
I don't have it at the moment, but there was a great video of a yuppie white ferguson protester chastising a black police officer who lived during the civil rights movement, and she was basically calling him an uncle tom house nigger.
>point out the flaws of ethical objectivity on reddit

Extremism's pretty bad any way you cut it, but so's total passivity. I can get why some are totally pissed because chads do that or sluts do this and so on. I just can't wrap my head around the 'rape culture' or 'internalized misogyny' kinda stuff. It all seems...well, basically identical to the childish prattle you'd hear on 4chan 10 or so years ago, just with the terminology altered.
>who gets to decide what is and isn't appropriate?
Anybody. It's open for debate.
>what exactly is wrong with human sexuality?
I suppose its up to those who choose to debate it.
>...there's absolutely nothing wrong with targeting the majority demographic - that's called business
I don't think you understand. You're presenting your rebuttals as if these are all points I've made.
The point I was making was that because one is a manufactured piece of artistic expression then it is and always should be acceptable to analyse and unpack.
Stop spoiling for a fight.
>unironically posting fat3's strawman comics
What the fuck are you talking about? If you're implying that anti-sjw means pro-misogyny, you're either misinformed or lying. Most of the plebs on reddit are liberals anyway, they just don't like being called a nazi racist raping
misogynistat the drop of a hat because they're white, or a male, or anything else that sjws arbitrarily hate.
sjws literally antagonize almost everyone they come in contact with, it's their own goddam fault.
Why dont you grow thicker skin like all the men playing games have to the over sexualized masculine depiction of men in videogames?
But clearly b8
To be fair, that type of attitude is prevelent in both sides these days, considering how shitty parenting becoming. No one wants to take responsibility for their actions or change their shitty ways, it's always someone else fault or the world should accept their bullshit instead.
Cultfag clubs like feminism and anti-racism have hidden mental illness that pretty much prove normalfags right, considering that feminists think that a culture can be objectively evil for seeing the world in a different perspective than them (and make up colorful words for it, thinking that name-calling somehow legitimizes them).
I would be inclined to disagree on a most basic level.
Representations and stereotyping of genders and sexuality is entirely generated and reinforced by media.
Here's the thing champ, when the number of sexualized men in gaming is compared to the number of unsexualized men, unsexualized dwarfs it. with women it's the opposite to the point where non sexualized women are the aberrants. it's insulting.
I came here just to laugh at nerds complaining about
>THE SJW'S WANT TO TAKE AWAY MY VIDEO GAMES
and /v/ delivered
Dumbass parents should educate their dumbass kids so they don't get influenced by dumbass marketing and media.
Education is key to everything. I can enjoy games with women wearing ridiculous outfits and where they're damsels in distress and know that women aren't objects or weak
SJWs are mostly young people. Ranging around puberty up to what, late 20's? They're people who want to change he world for the better, but they have no means to do that, so they latch themselves to whatever PC issue there is and, being young, are easily indoctrinated into those causes, and you see, young people LIKE echo chambers, where no new ideas are brought forth and discussion is limited repeating what they were told over and over, because people like that others agree with them. It the reason why those high school cliques form. You know the ones. "The nerds", "the metalheads", and so on.
Since they likely grew up without facing any real struggles, they will lash out at anyone who disagrees or adheres to any other way of thought.
>That sure makes it ok!
>I am a flower, your enjoyment ends were my offense begins
Pretty sure its not illegal to offend you, and sales figures show attractive women sell. You are
entitledto your opinion though.
Meanwhile, source, as well as im almost certain that it depends on the era. Late 90's would like to have a word with you.
They like the gay stuff in it, they just hate the author's political opinions. Also that pic triggers them because someone thought the pomegranate was an organ and the author refused to apologize for not using a trigger warning.
>sexualize most androgynous male nintendo character
>about as much muscle as a 14 year old grill
>for the gays
nigger, this is for yaoi fangirls that flick their beans to sephiroth. video game companies don't pander to gays unless its very small
Absolutely we should, nobody disagrees with you.
Though, would you as an educated person care if the women in your games weren't wearing as ridiculous outfits?
I'd hazard a guess that as long as they were designed well you wouldn't give a shit.

Another serious question.
I'm fat. Short. Ugly. Poor. Likely pretty autistic. Dick's never going to satisfy and if I ever get laid it will be pity or greed that satisfies that desire. Am I bad for wanting to play games as characters that let me feel like i'm everything i'm not?
When a woman is all the things I describe (or their equivalents), wouldn't she want to play games as characters where she's all the things she's not?
I don't I can enjoy both sexual and practical designs. I don't want to sacrifice one for the other. There is no middle ground for some people. The second they see a panty, a boob window they freak the fuck out and the people who enjoy are "part of the problem" or some buzzword like sexist.
People enjoy looking at the idealized depictions of each gender in their media. So the fuck what? This is how its been done for 1000's of years. Why the fuck else do you think pretty people are in the movies?
It's very bad. You either accept who you are, and do nothing the rest of your life. Accept who you are, and better yourself. Or be placed into some mental ward just incase you eventually become tempted into suicide. :^) Same goes for woman.
Yes, but did you know that the gaming market is geared towards men? And that women are just a satellite audience?
And, let's be honest here, what women find attractive in men, as evidenced in all those sappy romantic comedies and shitty romance novels out there, is mostly found on those game characters. They could be walking around shirtless, showing their toned bodies, but who gives a shit, they're just men, in a video game. You could replace most of them with faceless knights, robots, spess muhrreens or blobs and no one would give a crap.
When I was a teenager I was fat and short and when I saw physically fit or thin people in entertainment it just made me feel like shit, I really don't see how you could feel good while playing games full of beautiful characters.
>Pretty sure its not illegal to offend you
I get offended by a lot of things, sandals and socks, tumblr landwhales, and idiots in general but this isn't an "i'm offended" thing, this is a "my gender is grossly misrepresented in media thus devaluing it" thing. it's like systemic blackface and it's hard to break the cycle because as you said, our patriarchal little medium is really into it. that's why feminist lash out against it. Not because we hate sex, or sexy character design or whatever other straw man. Something so demeaning shouldn't be an industry staple.
It's more of "that made no since so I'm going to post a reaction image illustrating my confusion.". how were you not smart enough to get that?
Yes. Not bad in moral sense, but bad because you could make money and none of the other stuff would really matter yet instead of doing that you whine about it.
No. Women prefer things worse than themselves to make themselves feel better; rather than fantasize about themselves being better, they fantasize about everything else being worse. This is integral to the whole SJW movement.
Well let us all thank god that you're around to protect all the pixels being objectified.
Sexual dimorphism doesn't validate unequality or oppression in any way.
All male forums in internet instantly jump on every chance to insult women and make offensive sexual jokes to impress their friends. It's everywhere, even in youtube comments. It leaks to real life.
Women don't have this weird bitterness in them and they certainly never would release celebrity guy nude leaks to get off to the feeling of owning him and his body. Thousands of women are murdered each year because their boyfriend thinks he "owns" them after breaking up.
Women have respect unlike guys.
A lot of people aren't emotionally invested in their media like that. They can see just take shit at face value. When video games affect your confidence that's a sign of a larger, mental issue.
No its a capitalist market. What people want sells. And people want beautiful women in their games just like they dont want basement neckbeards.
Until your little tumblr brigade becomes a larger marketable force, dont expect the lions share of the market to pander to you. Again, idealizations of sexes have been in media since media existed.
If an action is acceptable then it is acceptable. If it's not, it's not. If it's entirely acceptable, how the fuck could it become UNacceptable by virtue of a FICTIONAL person doing it.
I've never heard a good argument that answers this. Saying "Samus didn't choose to wear that outfit" doesn't get you there because by that standard Samus didn't choose ANYTHING because she's fictional. You don't, for example, say that Samus' wearing her hair in a bun is terrible because she didn't choose it so there must be something about the outfit SPECIFICALLY that you're judging to be bad. But if that's the case you didn't need to invoke agency at all.
Of course the problem with that is that you'd have to apply the same standard to real people. Kim Kardashian, for example, is a MUCH more powerful media force in the US than Smash Bros right now. If she chooses to take a selfie of herself in an outfit like Samus' it might possibly reach a larger audience than Samus does. If it is harmful when Samus does it, it MUST also be harmful when Kim does it.
>"my gender is grossly misrepresented in media thus devaluing it"
I don't see how sexy women, dressed in whatever they are dressed as, being able to do the same things as men is devaluing, but hey, whatever you say.
Whatever, the constant bombardment of physically ideal characters motivated me to lose wight, it wouldn't have happened if I wasn't emotionally affected.
>All male forums in internet instantly jump on every chance to insult women and make offensive sexual jokes to impress their friends. It's everywhere, even in youtube comments. It leaks to real life.
Maybe, just maybe, perhaps it starts in real life, and that's where it leaks into internet forums and youtube comments, not the other way around.
This isn't some philosophical question of the chicken versus the egg, we know the internet didn't exist until (relative to human history) very recently, yet this patriarchy you cunts whine on about is something that has existed since the very fucking beginning.
Perhaps the issue is bigger than people copying what they see on the internet, and actually solving those issues would stop comments like that from being posted on the internet in the first place, rather than vice-versa.
Just an idea, fuckwit.
men are generally attracted to visual cues, women are genreally attracted to emotional cues. (if you dont believe me, look at the differences in preferences among gay men and women or lesbian women and straight men. they're not going to be the same) For a male character to be sexualized to be attractive to women, he has to have certain character traits, not just be a lumbering mass of beef in a speedo with a comically big package. Its not as immediately obvious when a male character is sexualized to a female audience.
characters like sephiroth that have a huge female fanbase are that way because they have sexual appeal (in very much the same way as the twilight guys or the male character in any romance novel).
>Yes, but did you know that the gaming market is geared towards men?
Boys club mentality, check.
>And that women are just a satellite audience?
Being a minority means your individual tastes as a gamer is worthless, check
>And, let's be honest here, what women find attractive in men, as evidenced in all those sappy romantic comedies and shitty romance novels out there, is mostly found on those game characters.

> You could replace most of them with faceless knights, robots, spess muhrreens or blobs and no one would give a crap.
annnd we don't care so why do you. I hate to do this but you should really watch tropes vs women in gaming. I hate sourcing Anita but your arguments are so fucking textbook that even she rebuttals them crisp and easily. so here
just actually watch it and be amazed that even "runs away from a debate" sarkeesian has a point.
Perhaps you should either stop being a fat, ugly slob who's undesirable or you should stop trying to bring the beauty standard down for your gender so you, insecure little shit head, can feel better about being thrash
>Women don't have this weird bitterness in them and they certainly never would release celebrity guy nude leaks to get off to the feeling of owning him and his body.
Are you trolling at this point. Celebrity male nudes not only get leaked, but are treated with a complete double standard by the media, pic related. Gawker made fun of Hulk Hogan and refused to take down the video even when threatened with legal action. Everyone made fun of Anthony Weiner's pictures and HE had to apologise for them. There was no outcry over the people releasing or downloading pics of his dick, only over HIM taking them.
You can bitch and moan about the fappening but the fact is that everyone involved in that leaking was ANONYMOUS and likely random basement trolls. Practically the entire media raged against it. On the other hand, journalists, sites and media commentators can openly host, comment on and make fun of male nude leaks with no fear of reprisal or criticism. Now you tell me, which of those two situations more accurately reflects acceptance by culture?
Never underestimate the mind of the insane.
>what a qt3.14
A boy's club mentality would be saying women aren't a large customer base and they SHOULDN'T be. That's not the point. The point is that the content reflects the consumer base, which is normal for any capitalist industry.
If more women buy more games, more companies will make games geared towards women. It's just how it works. You think multi-million dollar, international videogame publishers give a fraction of a shit about ANYTHING other than what makes the most money? They don't.
I dunno, probably, I just save shit from threads when someone derails with it.
Complaining about sexualized outfits is bad, coming from either side.
So shut up and keep postan link
This abortion of a thread aside, I do find it kind of amusing to think that SJWs probably imagine that 4chans reaction to sexualised Link would be outrage and discomfort.
When in fact we jack it to him.
I love how men have 2 to 4 times the suicide rate of women in nearly every fucking country, but are apparently swimming in delicious privilege and have nothing to complain about.
Oh trust me baby, I love myself. The problem is my social value can never match my self value because I'm a woman and by proxy worth less than a man.
Once again it's the sheer frequency not the act itself. for comparison dante went the entirety of DmC 3 shirtless and when he was fully clothed in 4 no one gave a damn. But ed boon says kitana is getting a little bit more clothes and realistic proportions and people are shocked. That's the woman in gaming's position.
and there's the problem, just because it's profitable doesn't make it right and damn sure doesn't justify it. I'm pretty sure the slave market was a fucking booming at one point but that doesn't make it right to own slaves does it? I know it's hard for you because of your male privilege but you have to be able to put yourself in woman's shoes before you can dismiss a issue. also I'm not a fan of tumblr, I'm a 4chan grown feminist.
Yes Yes I'm a landwhale who just wishes she could be objectified by our male overlords. whatever helps you sleep at night.
not the guy you were replying to but
>Being a minority means your individual tastes as a gamer is worthless, check
they're not worthless, they just wont be addressed as frequently. video games, like movies and TV are a product, they will follow the money. THERE IS NOT AS MUCH MONEY TO BE MADE IN FOCUSING GAMES AT WOMEN AS THERE IS IN FOCUSING GAMES TOWARDS MEN. you can talk about mobile gaming but we all know you're talking about consoles and PC. straight women are used to having media centered around them, because in most facets, they make up aroun 50% of the fanbase. they think that an industry where they make up a minority should also pander to their needs? i'm saying this as a gay guy, we make up >2% of the population, if any movie/TV show/game even includes a gay guy, its controversial. We had to wait 3 mass effect games for 1 gay romance option, but that doesnt mean that video game companies don care about gay fans, they just know they dont make up a large share of the market. It doesnt mean that video games are trying to exclude you because they feature something you're not interested in.
>men chose to ignore female entertainment
And yet no-one's complaining at all the women not making games for women. Does the lack of penis coincide with some kind of inability to code something? If it doesn't, then stop fucking complaining, start creating.
I thought feminism was about women standing on their own two feet, yet all they're doing is asking men to do shit for them. Feminists of the old days be rolling in their graves and shit looking at what their work has become. Disgraceful.
I'm vaguely enjoying this second-level trolling where sincerity becomes the norm and plays off of other sincere posts.
>my social value can never match my self value
If you valued yourself your social value wouldn't matter to you.
>Boys club mentality
but it is a boy's club, pretty much. The vast majority of people who consume "console/pc" games are male. It's not like you can't come, just don't start trying to change every little thing because it offends you because it affects you self-esteem.
>Being a minority means your individual tastes as a gamer is worthless
It just means that, being the minority, don't expect things to be made just to please your individual tastes.
>Men can be sexualized too so the problem doesn't exist
>Damsel in distress
I only see nintendo, old games and beat 'em ups, which have simple story telling to keep things simple and get the player straight into the action.
>just because it's profitable doesn't make it right and damn sure doesn't justify it
When it comes to matters of business and business alone, yet it does.
Fuck off back to Russia, communist.
Youre speaking from a position where you assume every woman on the face who has ever played a game cant possibly enjoy a it because it doesnt pander to them in a specific way. There are far more women out there who can play all the wonderful games out there without being butthurt because someone decided nipple shields were a realistic armor set.
I read a book describing violence in videogames with "the magic circle" and it can very easily be applied to the recent issues as well. What you see on tv and experience playing games you subconsciously perceive as fantasy, and cant possibly occur in real life. This explains why not every 12 year old playing Doom had shot up their school. You separate yourself in that way from the media when consuming it. The same is said of gaming and sexualization.
The people legitimately griping about gaming and wimmins are a small minority and only care because they've been sucking on Sarkeesian cock for too long.
ps i m a grill.
>Being a minority means your individual tastes as a gamer is worthless, check
I'm not a gamer. I just played video games. I've never once felt my individual taste is worthless...whatever the fuck that has anything to do with anything.
There's been basically perpetual FFXV threads on /v/ for like months now. You're cherry picking the negative reactions, but those are hardly the standard. People are hyped for the game. It's not like every thread is a picture of the titanic with the games logo pasted across it.
Also I thought an all-male cast was a red flag for you people, now 4chan are the sexists for wanting more of a gender balance? Can't keep up with this shit.
I get your angle I really do but the fact that it sells just shows gaming needs feminism more than ever. we're telling consumers and producers that what they're doing is wrong and exclusive which would eventually yield change. big companies are already on board ready for the change but or some reason gamers are refusing to change because they don't want the big bad feminists to take their fun. I loved huniepop but buying it in bulk to spite the SJW nemesis while poisoning anything that dares to be feminist, or progressive is the kind of behavior that highlights the problem and makes feminists out of men and women like me. the industry needs to change and you guys should welcome it instead of vehemently fighting us.

>I know it's hard for you because of your male privilege but you have to be able to put yourself in woman's shoes before you can dismiss a issue
>compares mortal kombat titties to the abject horror of slavery
>calls OTHER people priveleged
The lack of self awareness is palpable. Listen, no-one's being owned or forced into slavery when someone makes a big titty character in a videogame. The person making the big titty character wanted to make it and the person buying the game wanted to buy it. No-one's being tortured, enslaved, killed no-one's being forced against their will. It's 100% consensual fun times
You're the fucking stick in the mud getting in the way of this consensual transaction and saying NUH UH YOU'RE ENJOYING THINGS WRONG. The only person limiting ANYONE'S freedom is you and people like you. How you can even begin to think the vidya industry is the one comparable to the slave trade is fucking beyond me.
no it doesn't. If a businessman showed up on your doorstep with the deed to your life is he free ti sell you off because it's a matter of business and business alone? capitalism can be a great thing but when people like you put the value of dollars above fucking ethics it becomes a curse.
Wait are you purposely ignoring all those threads with countless posts praising the male characters appearances?
this thread is awful, im deploying large breasted anime girls
no, you should post more firm toned Links
There was actually a MMO years ago where females got their own sexualized male character class among all the "normal ones".
Then the community held a vote which character class should get a total rework.
And as you may guess male majority voted the sexy males to be remade into generic armorlords.
Fair play or power abuse? I think it's pretty easy to tell what this behaviour is.
>while poisoning anything that dares to be feminist, or progressive is the kind of behavior
There's literally no way anyone here could "poison" a game that was intending to be feminist. If someone wants to make a "feminist" game (not sure what that'd be exactly) then they are free to. It doesn't matter if people here hate it or rally against it, sales are sales. It's not like you get money reduced for the no. of people who DISliked your game.
The harsh truth is people like Brianna Wu NEED to create a giant shitfight around their game because it's fucking plain to see that her product is garbage. If there was no Brianna Wu the public figure that game would sell pitifully and everyone knows it.
You thinking companies rich beyond your dreams are ready for change but the big bad misogynists are holding them back and there's nothing they can do ;___; is a ridiculous narrative. Companies that big are always looking for what can make them the most money, and that's ALL they care about. Believe me, if they thought pandering to you would make them an extra buck they'd already be doing it. But they know it's most profitable to make some feminist noises to appease you when they're being interviewed, and then turn around and churn out CoD No.902 that makes you mad.
Aren't all the SJWs butthurt about homosuck because the author said he viewed the characters as white since he's white?
Then again when they found his old racist comics?
Then again when he refused to apologize for any of it?
You're missing the point. I didn't say systemic misogyny was even close to slavery in terms of severity I'm saying that "it makes money so it's not wrong and is justified" a fucking shitty defense. But go on, straw man harder, I want to get to the point where you tell me how much I hate men.
I'm just gonna ask, has anyone here ever been assmad over how attractive an anime or vidya character is, enough to throw tantrums about how people should accept you faults and all?
Just seems kinda like a real bitchmode thing to do. Closest I've gotten to feeling bad about fiction was after watching "Free" with my sister. And I just started running and trying to swim afterwards.
The people who legitimately care are too wrapped up in their own agendas to look beyond the surface levels to what a game actually offers. They concern themselves more with neutering a product to sterilization than the actual creative value of the product.
No, I never cared and never will. Lara's tits can be 10x the size they are now, and I will still play the games because they are interesting.
>If a businessman showed up on your doorstep with the deed to your life
>the industry needs to change and you guys should welcome it instead of vehemently fighting us.
the industry doesn't need to do anything, its fine as it is. YOU are upset at how women are portrayed, the millions of people who buy the games see no problem with it. why should they change to make you feel better when it could end up hurting their sales?
