JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit
for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please
Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.
See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.
Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?
nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa.
I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.
Just my 2 cents
ALL OF THIS.
Looks like it’s time for cynixy's guide to video game false equivalence again!
I really don’t want anything to do with JonTron if he isn’t gonna come to his senses. :(
I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
The last few weeks in videogame culture have seen a level of combativeness more marked and bitter than any beforehand.
First, a developer—a woman who makes games who has had so much piled on to her that I don’t want to perpetuate things by naming her—was the target of a…
A beautiful point of view. I welcome this new world, especially if it gets my idiot white male brethren to calm the hell down and enjoy some quality gaming time.
This change in the status quo only makes games better - A more inclusive player base and industry means more ideas and more innovation. Sit back and enjoy the benefits instead of making death threats.
Fighting-type VS Flying-type: A Visual Guide
Here’s some goofy art I made as a gift to someone! We recently had a good laugh at our imagined logic behind why Fighting-type Pokemon are weak to Flying-types.
A pleasant Sunday stroll for the Hitmonfamily is ruined by tiny Route 1 birds and their cohorts.

HEY WHY ARE WE NOT ON THIS LIST?
Here is a handy list of game devs you SHOULD support!
It’s funny how science fiction universes so often treat humans as a boring, default everyman species or…
I don’t think our habit of getting drunk off our asses constantly should be a bragging right, but I love everything else in here. Especially that we use deadly peppers as merely a flavor.
I have to speak more about that - that Capsaicin chemical that chili peppers produce. It ONLY affects mammals and can be argued that it evolved as the plant’s defense against mammals eating it. Yet it ended up causing us to eat the plant MORE. We use it as a flavor and even a painkiller or muscle relaxant instead of avoiding it.
I think persistence predation and the fact that we turned the chili pepper’s silly war on mammals into an insultingly one-sided GAME are our two biggest bragging rights as Homo Sapiens.
