The lights are on
Want to discuss women in games besides how "hot" they are? Instead of focusing on female assets, we'll be discussing how much females can kick ass and save the day! Whoever you like, let's talk about the positive female heroines in games!
This comes via GIO, and is from a former employee of said site. Read it. Now.
It sounds like the mods laid the smack down in the comments on that article. Still, there's a lot of victim blaming in the comments. Why is this a difficult concept for people to grasp? Stop being disrespectful to women.
Ew.... TBH, I had no idea sexism was quite this prevalent in the world.
Agreed. I'm happy the trolls have been cast out, for the most part. But I wish the victim blaming could be deleted too... it's really awful that it's somehow Meagan and the cosplayer's faults for "controlling" how those "professionals" reacted. *Sighs*
@badgerbil With the marketing decisions/characters developers, etc. choose, and from dumb quotes made in the past, you figure there is some degree in the industry. But those personal attacks against Meagan especially disgusted me. Totally uncalled for.
