Ben Kuchera, writing at Polygon, wants us to know that violence against women in video games is not acceptable. And that women are, apparently, just dogs to be kicked in most video games. Or something like that. Mateusz Wacek looks at his logic and finds it wanting.
There is a massive social movement sweeping the western world targeting problems faced by women. rather targeting men. It goes past the notion of feminism, or even gynocentrism, and models precisely that which drives all forms of human hate.
According to feminists, video games are a microcosm of a patriarchal, male dominant, misogynistic women objectifying culture that can be seen in every trope, character and plot of almost every video game made. Mateusz Wacek calls bullshit and offers a plan to respond.
It has often been said that feminism is born of Marxism. But is it really Marxist. or even Socialist? AVfM welcomes new writer Mateusz, who offers a staggering and highly relevant analysis of this question.
