Seriously, though. I’d love to see these “you have no right to complain about what developers put in games” guys if in the next installment Master Chief was gay, the Call of Duty protagonist was Muslim, or Samus Aran was openly and vocally feminist. Do you really think their little Reddit…
anyone who would like Samus Aran to be open and vocal about ANYTHING hasn’t played Other M.
I think deep inside we’d all love to have a Smash game with an all-female cast. That would seriously kick ass. Take notes, Nintendo!
Can you name all characters present here?
Palutena, Lip, Robin, Wii Fit Trainer, Lucina, Kumatora, Paula, Pauline, Zelda, Krystal, Dixie, Pokemon Trainer, Daisy, Jigglypuff, Nana, Toadette, Rosalina, Amy Rose, Midna, then those 2 rly small fairy things i don’t know the names of.
You missed some cool ones!!! Jill from Drill Dozer and Sami from Advance Wars specifically would be awesome.
But really, all of the characters in this image that really deserve a spot in the game (minus Nana ;___; ) are in it, with Dixie being the only questionable one imo.
Are you serious?
Here we go. Our first example of linguistically institutionalised misogyny, sure to be the first in a long, long list of depressing ways the English language unconsciously props up the patriarchy. As I’m using the Compact Oxford it doesn’t go into detail when describing actressy, but the absence of actorly next to actressy was a little conspicuous. So let’s refer to the online version:
(Of a woman) self-consciously theatrical or emotionally volatile: her actressy manner
Actorly can also be used in this way, of course, but someone chose to include actressy over actorly in the Oxford, felt that it was necessary to make the distinction official. Dictionary.com, meanwhile, recognises actressy, but not actorly.
It’s that good old double standard. If men are actorly, it’s an achievement, the ability to display a range of emotions; it doesn’t even merit an inclusion in the Compact. But if women possess the exact same skill, those supposedly by-default emotional creatures, then they’re hamming it up, too affected. Maybe that’s why they weren’t allowed on stage in Elizabethan times, because they, and not the men in the audience, might get too volatile. Sorry, girls, boys only in this cool club.
The real kicker is that when you look it up in Google - and let’s be honest, practically everyone looks up everything in Google - it can just straight-up mean emotionally volatile. You don’t even have to be an actress to be actressy, which means that any demonstration of negative emotion can be written off as acted, or false, when it comes from a woman.
is this a joke?
