Sorry, let me clarify. The above article on Gamepro was written by a woman, which frankly, I agree with. Men do 'violence' well, women are master of 'sexy', each element of this is what makes each gender 'cool'.
However, what set me off (Again) was this particular sites male view of women, on cheesecake imagery. The 'pro-female' male views were so... offended that it nearly came off as misogynistic from the opposite end, if you understand my meaning.
See, I come from the position that Feminism means allowing the woman in question to live her life as SHE WANTS. No to be told how to by anyone else, MALE or FEMALE. You (the general woman) want to be the next American President, or a CEO of Microsoft? Go for it. You would rather, and are quite happy being the meek housewife? Again, you should be allowed to be. As well as anything in between, of course.
Thing is though, in a gaming situation, you need 'strong' protagonists, and for male and female that means different things. However, for the most part the average 'heroine' is often nothing more than a guy with tits in mentality strapped inside a curvy package that makes Barbie envious. Something I noticed coming into prominence during the 90s, with Image comics. And yet, this is the sort of thing that we men seem to be deluged and currently expecting.
What say you, Elliquiy?
