#gamergate drama kings entitled babies evil imaginary ladies gamebros men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny no girls allowed special snowflaking vaginas

More like Battlefield VAGINA! Doofuses attack imaginary video game ladies by all making the same dumb joke

Oh that’s clever, bet no one’s thought of this yet

By David Futrelle

So the gamebros are up in arms about the fifth installment in the Battlefield series, Battlefield V, because the game, set in World War II, has LADIES in it, which makes it TOTALLY UNREALISTIC because there were NO LADIES in WWII, well ok maybe there were actually a bunch of ladies in WWII, some of them serving in combat even but goddammit WHY CAN’T OUR MALE SPACE BE SACRED ah bloo bloo bloo.

So anyway a bunch of these broflakes have decided to fight the female menace … by all posting the same dumb joke.

Gotta love all those Tweeters with anime avatars complaining that Battlefield V isn’t “realistic” enough. YOU KNOW PEOPLE’S EYES AREN’T THAT BIG IN REAL LIFE RIGHT?

Well that’s enough of that. There are more. Many, many, many more.

Even if you don’t speak German I think you can probably figure out what that last one is saying.

It’s always a bit amusing to me when dudes get mad about asskicking female characters in video games, claiming that these characters are “unrealistic” or “historically inaccurate.” VIDEO GAMES AREN’T REALISTIC. THAT’S WHY WE LIKE TO PLAY THEM. In real life, hedgehogs mosey along through the grass at about one-billionth of a mile an hour; in video games you can play a blue hedgehog that speeds through an assortment of surreal  landscapes at supersonic speeds.

In real wars, if you get shot, you fall down injured and maybe even die; in video games you can barrel ahead after being hit multiple times — and regenerate your health by hiding behind something for a few seconds.

I think these gifs say all that need to be said about the “unrealistic ” complaints.

Warhammer 40k has been going strong since the 80s AFAIK.

Hah. At least when it started out it didn’t take itself so seriously.

My great-aunt was a medic during World War II. She was with one of the paratrooper squadrons that went into London after the bombing. She found a dead Nazi pilot and took his armband and an insignia medal. This eventually ended up with my father. After he had a stroke, he insisted that it was evil and should be destroyed. I think it ended up in a box somewhere in my parents’ basement. If I find it, I will donate it to the Holocaust Museum.

Your great-aunt sounds badass. Also potentially, technically, a war criminal.

David Milner seems to believe that he is a 95 year old veteran who can remember the war like it happened yesterday. Too bad he isn’t.

The museum probably doesn’t want it. They’ve got more of that sorta thing than they could possibly need or use.

Um, did you look at the gifs accompanying his tweets? Cos the sentiment you’re reading into his words isn’t the one that I’m seeing.

They get offended about a woman in a WW2 game but defend a game about a school shooting.

Speaking of games, on change.org there is a petition for the removal of ‘super seducer’ if anyone wants to sign it. Hopefully it will remove the game.

Well since a group of right-wing religious fundamentalists managed to get steam to remove all the anime dating sims I’m sure super seducer will get removed as well.

I don’t really care about this. Yes, it’s to make video games more appealing and welcoming to women and disabled people, but I would like it if people boycotted EA’s, Activision’s and Ubisoft’s games enough to put them out of business in order for games and other intellectual property to be fair to the consumer again, so I consider these complaints a blessing.

After that though, men should have something done to them to make gaming a better place for women.
