Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why do male gamers whine about female characters in gaming? especially about Battlefield V?

My thoughts? I'm a male gamer and I haven't whined about female characters in video-games. Your title is rated as false.

Seriously, why even make a new thread to whine about other people whining in the first place? Just go to where the original whining is taking place so you can counter-whine there without spreading it to new locations like some kind of virus.

As far as Battlefield goes, I don't really care, but I can see people being cynical because EA themselves are trying to make it into some kind of big deal, like it's empowering for women to be fictionally inserted into historical warfare. It does make me chuckle a bit. They're patting themselves on the back for a marketing gimmick.

He wasn't thinking of you, just the misogynist fuckboys who don't like change.

I usually play as female characters because I don't see enough female lead characters.

My view on your thread is that you are blowing hot air.

Every single person I see complaining about the fragility of masculinity get offended by absolutely everything that doesn't panders to him.

No, they're not. They're just massively amplified by people who wine about them.

Because we're struggling for a way to shut them up.

How about instead of trying to "shut them up" you stop caring about them, giving their opinions power, and ignore them?

Hasn't the Streisand Effect taught you anything?

You're part of the problem.

I'm all for shutting up misogynists if it would shut up the social justice warriors along with them.

We're gonna need a lot of duct tape.

Nobody gives a damn about playing as a woman. Have you not seen the success of Horizon, Nier, Metroid, Tomb Raider and many others? But there's clearly a trend here since the SJW bullshit started in 2017 and not only in video games. Game developers/movie directors are not adding women because it fits their vision, but more for the sake of LOOK HOW PROGRESSIVE WE ARE. The lesbian kiss in the TLoU 2 demo was totally unnecessary and forced but don't you dare complain about it you ignorant women hating fuck! Games, just like movies and books, are a form of entertainment to escape the stupid ass reality we live in. SJW's, feminists and LGTB's are the biggest cancers in this world because they can't stand still and appreciate the progress we've made since a few decades ago, or look at way more important problems in the world right now. Nobody wants face this political bullshit over and over again.

I didn't mind the TLoU 2 kiss.

I think it was provocative art, and not just a lazy way to jump on the LGBT/feminist bandwagon. 

Good art has always been provocative, there was always a political and/or ideological statement in art, and Last of Us really fits into that because the first game already had strong ideological themes. And it was just two women kissing, why do people care so much?

As for the rest of your comment, I won't even acknowledge it by answering it. But I guess now I see why you care that much about that kiss ...

I don't mind two girls kissing. I even watched lesbian porn last night and that involves a LOT more than kissing

It's about the message behind it: ''Look how tolerant we are towards LGTB's. Now praise us.'' Yes, we get that now. Good for you. Unfortunately every game developer and movie director wants validation for it. It will be a matter of time before we play as a transgender. Maybe even a character who is a woman and male at the same time! That would be tolerant as hell.

Seriously if you watch Battlefield V's videos on Youtube in nearly all comment sections you will see people whine and complain about "SJWs". How fragile is your masculinity if you feel offended or threatened that a private company is going to allow gamers to play as females.  There is an argument made that there were no female combatants in WW2, this is absolutely false as there were thousands of them especially in the Soviet Red Army. And even if that were true,  games are supposed to be a form of entertainment they are not meant to be historically accurate. Most people do not play games for a history lesson.

You're completely missing the point, especially with that pathetic "fragile masculinity" nonsense. People are finally starting to be fed up with anticultural communists destroying our culture, civilization, values and societies. People in the West are finally starting to take notice of just how destructive communism is (as if every single past example wasn't enough... smh). The way EA presented this issue, the way the CEO voiced his opinion made it clear that we're talking about yet another brick in the wall. It was clear this was part of the ideological warfare that's ravaging the whole White Man's World and people are treating it accordingly. This has nothing to do with "men not wanting women in games", since such a claim is simply stupid and not even worth debating. This is a part of something much, much bigger than gaming and while most people aren't aware of the real scope of the problem, at least finally they are aware that there is a problem.

I feel like the ones that are calling SJW's intollereant are actually intollerant themselves and they need to really chill out. 

Define "tolerance". There are at least 3 completely different definitions of this word in use and they actually are mutually exclusive.

da fuck are you talking about in regards to communism!?

a private corporation trying to milk the SJW tit for what they expect to be good publicity is the furthest thing away from communism that you can get. if for some reason EA is going to share their revenue with the people or giving their workers representatives some seats in the board of directors, then we could start talking about it

I'm just as sick and tired of right wingers trying to label this PC culture as somehow exclusive to the left (and using buzzwords like communism and socialism) when the original PCs throughout the ages were right leaning people, with the left leaning people being regarded as the counter culture all over western societies.

It's a personal attack to point out that your attitude is feeding into the very thing you apparently want to destroy?
