But how can we be sure that those who claim to be women are in fact women?

Also, some of my female friends have told me that the only reason they watch lesbian porn is because it tends to be more gentle. As opposed to all the videos with men where the men tend to demean the women. They've told me it's way too rough and fast. They prefer something softer with more emphasis on the story. I heard something similar from a female porn director in a documentary I once watched. Of course, I'm not saying that's the case for all women or even most. Until there is a reliable study I'll have my doubts.

There are plenty of articles explaining why straight women like lesbian porn. And even though its the highest, its not like the others are far behind with women liking gay porn and big cocks more then men. I don't see why it shouldn't be fairly accurate.

All I'm saying is that I don't trust polls/studies that are not done properly. I'm not saying it's definitely not the case. I just have doubts. That's all.

I like most of those though, not all but most. It would be a true shame if we stopped getting those characters.

 

What do you mean, you agree with some of the entries but you'd be missing them if they stopped appearing altogether?



This, along with all the other articles like it is just click bait. They write this stuff just to get people to visit their site so that they can make money.



Firstly, eliminating them altogether can be just as bad as overusing them as in real life there are real women who reflect those above characters.

Secondly, try promoting underused female character archetypes rather than attacking ones you think are overused, hating on something is far less likely to get people to change their behaviour.

#7, #6 and #3 for sure, or at least be given a break.

When will Princess Peach wise up and learn to defend herself?!

Nope, don't agree, developers should have freedom to do characters spawing from any kind of possibilities, and if they want a prostitute, a damsel in distress, a badass strong female character or anything else, they should do it without a second thought.

What should stop is people trying to put a limit or rule to a creative work, just fuck off.

You are my new best friend.

No, I meant that I disagreed with the writer that those stereotypes are a bad thing that need to be weeded out of the industry. 

I'm of the opinion that people should be able to make whatever kinds of games they want to make. If you want a game with a strong female character, go make it yourself or go work for a studio that likes making games with strong female chaarcters, don't try to ruin things for others who enjoy these stereotypical characters. I know I enjoy a good damsel in distress every now and then, and I definitely enjoy eye candy and sexy badass characters, it would truly suck if the feminists and SJW's succeeded in removing those from gaming. I don't really care about Mary Sue Know it all, and I don't really care about prostitutes in games (though they do add to the realism in some games such as the Witcher imo). 



if real women tend to occupy these archetypes primarily then what is the problem?
