"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalises the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalise views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" -Dr. Peter Hegarty

Found this in my brother’s room this morning. I have never felt so disappointed in my life that that little fucker supports rape culture. Look at her damn outfit. This game was made to sexualize women and make men comfortable with treating women like scantly-clad objects.

Fuck this world. Fuck the patriarchy. I can’t handle this bullshit anymore.

I’m more wondering why you don’t respect your brother enough as a human being to realize that you shouldn’t infringe on his privacy

yeah because being a nosey cunt is a good idea.

Not quite sure how playing as a chainsaw-wielding, cheerleading zombie hunter supports rape culture just because of her dressing how she wants.

That and the fact that if you actually played the game. OP, you’d find that it’s actually a fairly scathing deconstruction/parody of such games. 

But it’s just easier to sit down at the keyboard and go “RAWR MEN BAD” isn’t it?

I think the game sounds dumb but it isn’t my cup of tea. I never once looked at it and thought OMGSEXISMRAWR though.

Uhm Juliet Starling the main character of the game killed her first zombie before she could walk. Has 2 sisters also zombie hunters. Her father respects her choices and wishes as well as that of his other children. Her boyfriend is the support in all mannerism. You know being a head and all.

The game as said satirizes many genres as well as the damsel in distress concept. As Nick her boyfriend has to be saved a few times in the game play. She uses her cheer leading experience to defeat the zombies. 

So female lead being comfortable in her sexuality and femininity kicking zombie ass with pom poms and pole dancing spins is ‘rape culture’

Also you invading your brother’s privacy for notes on a blogging site to seem righteous on an issue you have clearly only learned about on said site.

Really put your foot in your mouth there didn’t you

Look at her page - she actually calls herself “the queen of feminism”.

If that isn’t a gigantic warning signal to disregard anything she says, then I don’t know what is.  People like her are the ones that have chased women that actually do believe in gender equality right out of the feminist movement.

I’m still laughing at the fact that this is a game where the male lead is literally NOTHING BUT A TALKING HEAD, and she’s screaming “RAPE CULTURE!” over a cheerleading uniform, because heaven forbid a girl is comfortable in her own body, and is open about her femininity.

Can I just take a moment to explain why I love Nintendo, both at E3 and in general?  I mean, no - the E3 conference may have started at a high note but it kind of ended on a whimper by the end.

But you know what?  I don’t care.

Look at these three men.  They are the three geniuses behind the company.  A man who treats a plush toy with love and laughter in front of millions of viewers.  A man genuinely shocked and amazed when his face is transformed as part of a game.  A man caught contemplating the significance of bananas in the middle of a serious presentation.

Every other company comes onto the stages trying to be as professional as possible.  They see their customers, their players, as mature adults and want to keep up the face of being so as well, producing prerecorded videos of obviously overexcited actors…. - but in the process, while they talk about how excited they are about something, there’s nothing.  Nothing there is genuine.

Nintendo doesn’t care.  Nintendo goofs off.  Nintendo carries ridiculous props onstage and laughs at themselves.  Their excitement isn’t just stated, it’s shown.  They are there, having fun, and because of that you know that they genuinely love their games.  The things they are selling you are things they love themselves.

They are complete dorks at heart.  They still love fun and aren’t afraid to show it in front of millions of people.

And that is why I love Nintendo and will always back them - we share that love of fun.

I know it’s pretty late to comment, but this is a glorious post and a glorious comment.

With an incredible amount of truth. While there’s merit in being professional, nothing sells entertainment like letting your audience know that yes, you genuinely love your product and want to share it with the world.

This is why, even when Nintendo stumbles, and even when they fall flat on their faces, I believe in them to come back swinging and better for the experience.

Reblogging for commentary.

Microsoft and Sony know how to be professional in front of a critical audience.

Nintendo knows how to play.
