 Why It's Tough Being a Female Gamer - briefly
(hx) 12:41 AM EDT - Sep,05 2013
XP Magazine's Izzi Smith argues almost solely from personal experience about the travails of playing games while simultaneously having ovaries. Here's an excerpt:
Like within any form of modern day media, there's an unfair attitude towards the female body with unrealistic ideas of perfection. The cultural hegemony that surrounds women from an early age is spotted frequently in the video game world. It is rare a game will have a female protagonist and when they do they're normally quite badass role models for young-lady geeks like I was, such as Samus Aran, Lara Croft and the chicks from Resident Evil. However, it's disheartening to know that these kick-ass women were mainly placed in the game with tiny waists, unnaturally large boobs and tight-fitting clothes to give men something to desire and wish to play, rather than a heroine for young girls. And probably because it makes cosplay a whole lot more exciting for you geeky dudes out there.

This is where a few men will kick off during my argument and state something along the lines of "You don't like them because they're hotter than you are." This isn't the case; I'm not a jealous, insecure girl who cries in the mirror because I don't have perfectly triangular boobs like my hero, Lara. It angers me because when there is a female main-character in a game she's either an awesome hottie with an unrealistic body that young men will grow to think is the norm and the only acceptance of attractiveness, or she's a damsel in distress who keeps getting abducted and held somewhere grim until she’s saved by a man. Unfortunately, I've had to accept the fact that gaming is an industry manufactured for men, so it's never going to change.

Totally dumb article. Probably one for Mr Tech buff and his alter ego alias Koogle.

"these kick-ass women were mainly placed in the game with tiny waists, unnaturally large boobs and tight-fitting clothes"

...and we wouldn't have it any other way, thank you.

This sure is gaming news

As if male gamers had great bodies... lol
It's the same deal as any other hobby: if you are sitting a lot, you'll grow a belly and an ass - and it applies to both man and woman just the same.
If you're concerned about belly/ass size, go and find a different hobby, or do something else on the side that compensates sitting.

But, if you're calling yourself a gamer, it means you've made peace with sitting in front of a PC/console/<name of your poison> most of the time - and the the belly/ass size that comes with it -, so don't go nagging about it!

DAMMIT, WOMAN! Dinner's burnin'! Back in the kitchen with you!
