#GamerGate: Is sexist games marketing a real problem -- or feminist propaganda?

Ever since GamerGate happened, panic about sexism and women in video games has been rampant.

Ever since GamerGate happened, panic about sexism and women in video games has been rampant.

It has infiltrated mainstream journalism, gaming companies and now comedy outlets like College Humor (whose recent story on it reopened the whole controversy.)

Those who are against GamerGate and are convinced the gaming industry is sexist have continued to push a multitude of narratives, one being that women and men are actually not very different, and the only reason women aren’t playing counter-strike all day in the same numbers as men is solely because games companies market to boys instead of girls.

This is nonsense. If gaming companies could double their markets so easily with a bit of advertising, they would. The fact is women and men prefer different types of entertainment and different types of games.

Really though, the only reason this is an issues that even needs to be discussed is because once again feminists are creating propaganda to convince women they are victims. Ladies, the market isn’t out to get you -- play what you want and spend your free time how you like!

AK-47: $2500.
Kevlar and helmet: $1000.
Flashbang x2: $400.
Knifing Lauren while she is bending over defusing the bomb: Priceless.

This is why so few women play Counter Strike.

Lauren, your points are spot on. I love College Humour, but the Adam Ruins Everything videos are consistently full of badly researched half-truths. I don’t find him very humorous, and certainly not factual.

“Shooting rainbows and unicorns”

Ok, Lauren, look up Team Fortress 2. The Pyro Class…

I have been gaming for 30+ years. This is only a problem now…

If you follow this, you will follow it to a Zoe Quinn and a host of radical female feminists who hold her up as some sort of Valerie Solanas v2.0. Even Anonymous is involved in this. Just about everyone is sick of Miss Quinn, and she just won’t go away…

You ever try to play Counter Strike with a woman on your team? She gets shot too many times by the opposing Awp Whore, and she starts screaming at him, even if all talk is off?

As for marketing, there is a reason why Nintendo named their portable the Game Boy. Or why Mario rescues Pauline or Peach, and not the other way around. Or for that matter, why it is the woman who gets punched and kidnapped in Double Dragon? Can’t get away with the punching cut scene in today’s politically charged climate.

Sure, men and women like different things. But it sure took the game companies long enough to get good at marketing towards women.

If you want a good example of a game that is supposed to appeal to girls, look at Bubble Bobble. It was supposed to be a game where the presumably straight couple could play together. Maybe one day you can meet me, and we can blow each other with bubbles.

Strange. I suspect we all know deep down to respect men and women.
I mean, I think we all know deep down that men and women deserve respect as human beings.

the feminists eat their own like they were at the buffet. I doubt the gaming industry is going to start making games for just three women.
commented 2015-12-16 21:44:40 -0500
… because our most important social agenda is to get women to spend more time playing video games???

Feminazis offend me, but i doubt they care. The wimps who bow down to them also offend me.

Feminism is a career investment in a chronic state of dissatisfaction……when the placer gold gets harvested from a stream…..big money is needed to tunnel for veins of the deeply buried stuff……now just watch….some SJW will accuse me of calling feminists “gold diggers”……..:-)

lauren, you have common sense. are you really a woman or a tranny in disguise? a little xmas humour for the rebel. don’t leave us again rebel-we need and love your common sense.

This is the genderless utopia that they are trying to force on society. As far as I’m concerned, God made male and female only, and the sexes have very different desires and needs, contrary to what they are trying to convince others of. Most women I know don’t want to play these games, they want to be mothers!

When you finish watching this video, allow Youtube to revert to to the multiple choice option and hit on "How Microsoft is social engineering you through……The Complete title dose not show.
This is a scary observation and is well worth watching, 30 Minutes.
