Feminists/womanists and their allies know that change comes by virtue of anger.
Progress ain’t fueled by rainbows and gumdrops.
If you’re not angry, you’re probably not helping.
— Melissa McEwan
Just a reminder because I am sick of people telling me not to be so angry lately. People seem to forget that I am angry for a reason.
From your Left 4 Dead review: “…you can’t choose which survivor you play as, so someone will be stuck playing the girl.”
Please explain this joke to me? How does one get “stuck” playing as “the girl”, and why is this a bad thing?
Seriously, I really want to see you explain how this is funny without just coming out and saying girls and women are inferior. Because that is the entire point of the joke… someone gets “stuck” playing as the female character because no one WANTS to play as the female character, because girls suck.
The “joke” makes especially no sense because you go on to say that the characters are entirely cosmetic since they all play exactly the same. So in this case the ONLY reason someone would feel that they were “stuck” playing as Zoey is because they are sexist assholes.
Clearly you didn’t take into account that some of your readers would actually WANT to play as “the girl”. But, you know, keep on keeping that boy’s club sealed up tight.
