Today I read an Opinion Piece on Polygon called “No Skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry” It’s a good piece and one I think you should read.
The hypocrisy is astounding
Brianna Wu is a self proclaimed feminist that regularly harasses developers into making games more politically correct. Below is a video of her game, Revolution 60, which is not my cup of tea, but I can see the market for it. What is amazing is the, I don't know, double standard? have the cake and eat it too?
All female cast, men as faceless, non speaking, tropes to be killed for points, and the females are all very skinny, big breasted, with basically body paint for clothes. Now where have we heard complaints about that before? Oh we haven't. unless it was designed by a man. Maybe Anita Sarkeesian, her friend and supporter, should actually look at the game she supports?
Just need to look at the hate of a belly button here or the recent spider woman 'variant cover' ass hate here.
Few more of classic Spider-man
Look into Assassins Creed new female character.
E3 2014: Ubisoft Explains Why Assassin's Creed Unity Lacks Female Leads
Ubisoft's work would have been "doubled" if it had included playable female characters.
Ahh, just a bunch of privileged white cis males, who cares if the work is doubled right?
Another statement that just boggles the mind
When I first heard about Julie Ann Hovarth’s allegations of gender-based harassment at GitHub, my stomach churned. Not because sexual harassment is a dreadful subject, which it is – but because I knew another female software developer was about to go through hell, regardless whether her allegations were true or not.
So.. the man never went through hell? regardless whether her allegations were true or not?
But ya, just keep telling me how feminism is about equality.
If Wu would just stick to making games, and not have a weekly podcast pushing social justice, maybe she could make a good living from what she claims to love. Nope, have to make sure she and her ilk get to look over every developers shoulder and give the feminist stamp of approval, then feed off receiving a pile of condemnation from her critics, which a small minority, if any, are actually threats of violence, and not just a small thrashing like I did here.
