I apologize for my poor English in this post but I’m uneducated. I’m trying my best to talk about something that has been bothering me for some time.
After all the fallout from the GTA V reviews this week is it not about time people laid their cards on the table and had a real discussion about they way women are viewed/treated in games and the industry.
This is my view from the last year.
I’ve noticed that in the USA this year most prominent online personalities have taken a hard stance on their views on women in the industry and all are following the political correctness that we had in the UK in late 90’s.
Here it went too far we couldn’t even sing certain nursery rhythms.
I have a fantastic wife and 2 teenage daughters, they like rom-coms I like killing things in games, I wouldn’t review their movies and they don’t review my games and as such we live a happy life.
My wife earns more money than me she works less hours and thats great for our family life.
My point is that are people making a bigger deal of this and just jumping on the bandwagon ?
Am I a dinosaur like Michael (I’m his age) ?
I still hold open doors for women. Stand when they join/leave at a dinner table. Offer seats on public transport (I can relate to this guy)
Is their a bigger problem that I can’t see.
What do you think ?
