Yeah, I’ll leave it at that.
Many moons ago, I posted about Cardcaptor Sakura & gender. Now, I’m back to explore video games & gender. Why not anime this time, you may ask? Because, uh…battleaxe.
I’ve been playing video games for most of my life. While they provided a beautiful escape, they also shaped much of my ideas about what was male & what was female through my adolescence. Part of the reason for that is I didn’t have many games that even had women in them, much less had a female protagonist. & not that many games that were made when I was a kid had female protagonists. I grew up with fictional, pixelated men.
