Dear guy I met once and have never texted since I got your number months ago,

I do not want to fuck.


you wish

"Well, I don’t care. He gives large parties, and I like large parties - they’re so intimate. Small parties, there isn’t any privacy."

If video games are going to be less fun for you if more of the main characters are female, if less side quests involve a woman being beaten, sexualized, or killed, if less randomly generated sequences are acts of violence against women, and if male characters have to be motivated by something other than earning access to a vagina, then I’ll argue you don’t love video games anyway.

The controls don’t change. The graphics don’t change. The stories don’t change. You just see women getting mauled and beaten and bloodied less. Or you see dead bodies in a position dead bodies would naturally be in, not posed erotically. Or prostitute #2 has a name, a background, and agency to begin with, and if she sends you on a quest, she pays you like every male character in the game, she doesn’t fawn over your dick with a wink and a nudge to begin with, and you don’t come back to a seedy cut scene.

I cannot think of an instance where making a game less violent against women and less fetishizing of that would alter the story or the characters and THAT’s the problem… that it’s there insignificantly, as an aside, as a false motivator, as entertainment… none of these women are people with stories. 

Political debate is only considered optional by those so obliviously content with the privileges afforded them by the status quo as to not understand how any further social change could constitute an improvement, on the basis that it either fails to benefit them directly or appears to diminish their power.
