I’m a woman and I play video games. I like hot guys like Cloud Strife. I think it’s funny how in video games, people like me can objectify men but god forbid a man do it to princess Zelda. A man is shirtless: No prob. A woman shows cleavage: Problem. I think it’s hypocritical but what do you think?

I think it's hypocritical. I don't think it makes either claim less valid though. I think we should should all try to stop sexualizing each other

I think Claw is hot AF. He can stab me anytime.

I think it's pretty funny too. I know they often use "male power fantasy" as a word they can salt onto everything and just assume it's a solid counter point but it really isn't. If it's objectification to see Laura Croft in the shower then it's not male power fantasy to see Bruce Wayne/Batman in the shower. But they'll still pretend that they're two totally different things.

Edit: I just want to continue that I don't think either is wrong to actually do. We're all human and the majority of us have some sort of thing we like. I have no issue with women loving Link. He was designed to be handsome and stuff, nothing wrong with that. But it's wrong to like one of the ladies from Street Fighter? Okay.

I love Link! I like his design a lot! And I’m a woman soooo..... 😁 Link is a sexy dude!



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
