are you ever a bit impressed by how completely wrong an argument manages to be
I kind of agree with this, being a girl myself.
Like, my favorite video game heroine isn’t Laura Croft or Samus Aran, it’s Holly Summers. For those of you who’ve forgotten, it’s this lady right here:
Because I find a lot of depth and complexity in her. I could (and fucking might have to) write a small thing on the girls in No More Heroes and why you shouldn’t think the game is sexist because of their portrayal.
He’s being an asshole in his presentation, but she’s also wrong for judging the game before playing it. Just like people are wrong for judging Quiet before playing the new Metal Gear game.
If we’re so fucking big on not slut-shaming, then no, I don’t see anything wrong with the girls in that hypothetical game dressing that way if they’re well-written, interesting characters.
Context is everything.
