Stop Ruining my God Damn Video Games, Superheroes…Everything
men literally want to kill women for being involved in video games.
Wow… Certain men want to kill women, they have names, avatars and identities and outdated ideas I don’t share and most men probably don’t. Men who have wanted to kill feminists throughout history have done so for trying to change the status quo…just like people have wanted to kill idealists with progressive ideas throughout history.
I’ve heard so many people talk about how women need to be portrayed differently in video games…how about we stop perpetuating the male hero archetype?
Boys grow up being told they need to be the man of the house, they have to provide for their family, that they have to be the prince charming to sweep a women off her feet and to save her and the day. We put boys on a fucking pedestal from the minute they are born and most will never live up to this unrealistic expectation. I can’t think of a more perfect way of creating a generation of disillusioned males that learn to hate women because they will never be able fulfill this outlandish standard.
Can we stop telling girls they should expect these things? Can we tell them to expect more of themselves? Can we tell children to stick up for what’s right and to fight against all injustice? Can we stop characterizing behaviors as male or female instead of demonizing them as gender specific and realize anyone can like anything? We can…but we won’t. People need negative things to grab on to, otherwise they would have to reflect inward and fix themselves.
God society makes me depressed, I just want to build my cabin in the woods with my wife and my dogs and leave the world behind…because most of you are not worth it.
