what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works
no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.
Perfect metaphor is perfect.
“what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place”
what the everloving fuck
I’ve been thinking about this issue for a while now (in terms of games being made that ‘cater to girls’). I could be mistaken but while I do see that many games clearly target the male market I also see just as many that are like gender neutral? Though I think the trick is that games have much more gender neutral content when made for the eastern audience, whereas obvi the western market is all about HARDCORE MEN BADDASS GUNS AND BUTTS.
Honestly it’s a cultual thing that stretches outside of the gaming realm, that being said what really needs to happen is to have more feminine perspectives and representation? Like holla I see it happening already where more women are entering the industry, so idk it’s shitty but I already see different perspectives and directions present in recent game concepts.
We need to get involved and get into whatever we want to get into? Ignoring whatever misogynistic ‘nerd’ bros who think that they can exclude women from this shit. I think taking control of the situation ourselves is a better solution than asking game dev’s to make games for “girl gamers.” Because peace out we don’t want a hannah montana psp or dress-up games (some may be into that I am gomen) but I hate that superficial crap that game companies try to do.
My mother told me, “Count your blessings,” so I traced every scar you left on her broken frame as one and two and three days more, and every kiss goodnight was four through six, as she tucked me in, seven days, so weak. She starved herself, then ate your pride, and nine was found in leaving. Ten plus eleven, and twelve weeks more, I’m finally old enough to hate you.
Jardin fleuris is a series representing the different ages of a woman. The first picture is called Virgin Soil, the second is called Mûres which means both “blackberries” and “mature” representing puberty and first periods, the third picture is called Broken Eggs. Broken eggs represent the loss of virginity in arts. The fourth photo is called Blossom in the Garden and represents a mother with her inner fertile garden.
Love this. :o
I think this is beautiful
