"Gamers get hella uncomfortable over male sexuality too. Can you imagine a ‘good male character who just happens to be wearing sexually exploitative outfits because he’s ok with his masculinity?’ Constantly has the camera pan lovingly over his asscrack and firm glutes, and big ole dangly ballsack that is totes sweaty from all this MMA and soldiering. Time to hit the showers, and do you, personally, think it’s ok to have a long slow pan up the dude’s package (indiscreetly hidden in a jock of course), to his chiseled physique and erect nipples (pierced). He’s not even a Bond-esque confident man, he’s basically a weird Bowie caricature that’s constantly having near-dickslips in every single cinematic as the completely nonsexualized female characters do their business of being gruff and shooting dudes and advancing the plot. Finally, at the end he falls in love (out of nowhere) and/or is killed by the big baddie."

a forum post I read recently, trying to give a solid example of what ‘male objectification in gaming ’ would actually look like if it was anything equivalent to current female objectification in gaming. (via nothingbutsurrender)
this is a really good post oh my god im die
To anyone who thinks that men are objectified just as much as women in video games (or comics or anime for that matter)
best post on my dash today
Yyyyep. When games start doing this, then I’ll believe that “the men are just as objectified/caricatured as the women”.
"It is so cool that your online drinks menu simulates the experience of flipping through a 20-page cocktail menu book, rather than simply listing all the cocktails on one page (booo-ring!)! The interactive experience was well worth the 5-minute wait for the Flash to load."
