Gets better when you realise that she herself claimed social security in her time of need.

WOW…you mean she took her own money back years after she was forced at gun point to shell it out?

Also its not like she was a best seller author in her days and paid an ass-load of social security payments. Oh wait !

Ah, so it’s ok to use the system if you’ve paid into…so like everyone then.

Gotcha.

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format. 

The numbers quote and used n those images are based on a study done in, 2001, I believe, in which the “Researchers” played only the top 10 ten games for each current console, and only played around the first level or hour for each game.  After playing only 60 games, each for around an hour, they then generated those percentages.  As such, those numbers are incredibly off base and inaccurate, especially when you attempt to apply them to the current to generation of games.

To put it simply, “Their sample size was bad and they should feel bad.”
