This is certainly an interesting take on the matter I would recommend reading the whole way through. What do you think?
I feel like this article contradicts its own point. Denying that the representation of women in games is due to sexism, and then saying that it's because society views women in an overly positive light doesn't make sense because that would still be a sexist view. If you implicitly think that women are less capable of evil or more pure, then it is an attitude you hold on the basis of their gender. It's still sexist, doesn't matter whether the view is positive or negative.
So even if that article's thesis is correct (which I don't agree with), it only ends up supporting the idea that video games have a problem with sexism, which it seems to want to debunk.
There's also a few strawmen in there that miss the point.
