She WAS bullied that's the thing. (not for being a female gamer, but for being a gamer at all) She used it to her advantage and it landed her an epic job.

did your sister ever get bulled for playing games have people say she is now allowed to play gaems have peopel at a store refuse to sell her a video game as it was not for her

I HAVE HAD THAT HAPPEN

How the hell will a female link solve that? And your problems are not everyone's problem.

You are literally asking to change an iconic character whom people grew up with. Samus and Bayonetta exist and no one wants them changed. They are all established characters so why should they change?

Your problems are related to real life so they can only be solved in real life. Making Link female will do nothing as people in the gaming world already respect females. The bullies you speak of will not change just because there's a female link.

This is a video game not politics. There are enough women related issues that are all in the real life.

Guess what, I'm male and I was ridiculed for playing video games and liking Dragon Ball as a kid. Nobody cares.

Danke.

Here you go. From last year. Here's your representation.

Back in the 80's, we never would have had so many females in gaming. So saying that it's still a huge issue is nonsense.

It's a luscious mix of words and tricks, that let us bet, when we know we should have folded.

Those are real life problems. Changing character gender in a game will do nothing to solve that.

I've been mocked for several years for liking My Little Pony. If this is a contest to see who's worse off, you WILL lose this fight.

Come on people this is a video game not politics. There are real female problems. Go solve them. Link is a beloved character since the childhood of a lot of people. You want to change him?


Apparently, they do.
And they don't care about real world problems. That's what modern feminism is.


I care about "real world problems" AND gaming cultural problems. Crazy how people can care about many things. And they intersect. Our media influences our culture. Our culture leads to the "real world problems" you're talking about.

This is my free time. I'm choosing to spend it arguing on a message board. I have no illusions that this is a lofty pursuit. I'm mostly just venting my frustration about Nintendo's choice. But since I am a feminist in my daily life, I don't just stop being that because I'm hanging out online. It's called having principles.

So because I'm spending my free time arguing about representation in my HOBBY, does not mean I don't care about "real world" problems. Something that all the idiots out there really need to get through their heads and stop using that tired line.
