Anonymous said: why do people demonize sex and sexuality so much to say it disparages individuals? If we know standards of beauty for men and women are unrealistic yet given credence even when the medium in question is totally fictitious? Haven't we had this argument about rock 'n roll before?
When we were having the arguments about Rock And Roll they were all old arguments as well.
I think it is important to understand that some people do have an unrealistic standard of beauty and that video games have contributed to that. But if we were to take away their video games then there are a seemingly infinite number of other media sources to take its place. Television, Film, and Magazines are far worst then video games on this matter as they actually focus on real people.
What is continually lost in the argument is that people can create media for the space which incorporates different characters and different standards of beauty. Everyone is talking about harassment in the industry, no one is talking about scholarships for game designers that have minority status. No one right now is covering game developers in the industry who fit the minority status except to talk about the controversy. No one is doing a grant program specifically for the developers that cover these issues. Especially the people that are supporting the people most critical of female representation.
We can’t make the world better by censoring everything that bothers us, we can make it better by encouraging people who have a positive voice. I think that should be the message we should be pushing for.
