There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.
I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.
That’s not 5/15 (33%), that’s 5/20 (25%), which just tells you these dudes are even more sensitive than the average dude.
Really tired of this. I grew up as a guy playing video games, and the type of criticism Feminist Frequency is leveling on gaming is spot on. The reaction for gamers like me should be: I didn’t notice this as a kid, but it’s accurate and it’s a problem—we should try to fix it. The reactions I’m seeing from male gamers—reactions just like this one—make me feel betrayed.
It’s like, I grew up playing video games and being male. I had a lot of male gamer friends, and knew many more. Where is this nonsense of theirs coming from? Was it there the whole time? Was I going to arcades and having a good time playing SF2 with a bunch of anti-woman brodudes who just weren’t letting on?
You can’t be blamed for not noticing the inequality in representation if you were a male gamer—especially a kid. We take what we’re given at face value most of the time, and if you’re a guy, you’re ALWAYS represented, so it’s not a big surprise if you never gave this issue a second thought. But once the facts are laid out before you, ignoring them—or worse, actively denying them—is…ghoulish. It’s shameful. And the prevalence of such behavior is turning the term “male gamer” into a slur. This is not something the video game playing population needs.

This is fake. They haven’t been sat on that rock for 50 years. If you look closely you can clearly see her swimsuit is different in the second photo, it has stripes on it. And the guy’s shorts seem to have a more floral pattern in the latter photo.Also, if someone sat on a rock for 50 years, it would have made the news. My theory is, they simply returned to the same location 50 years later, and recreated the original photo.
