Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

I cannot wait for men to cry about this

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

I am a big fan of muscles- but that conan just looks like a cocky douchebag. Posing matters just as much as physical traits. It’s easy to look at someone who fills legitimately every single one of your aesthetic general likes and still find them repulsively unattractive. =p 

His legs aren’t attached right, which took me a moment to realise but contributed to my lack of attraction right from the beginning. But all above commentary is very important. I want to watch a movie or play a game about the badass boobs out chick though.

I’ve spent the last few weeks writing a script I’ve been dreading for years. 
The story of the Passenger Pigeon is a terrifying omen, a nightmarish slow-motion car accident unraveling in front of our eyes. Hindsight is so clear with this issue that it seems nauseatingly preventable - I say this from my position a hundred years in the future. But the reality of this story is that because of human impact, interference, over-hunting and trapshooting, within the span of 4 decades the population of these birds diminished from a booming 3.7 billion individuals to near extinction. They were shot, netted, poisoned, smoked out, burned up, prodded, intoxicated, left to starve, and otherwise eradicated in every sense of the word. It’s a tough reality to face. 
We’ll be uploading this video in a few weeks, but I wanted to give you all a heads up to check out this book by Joel Greenberg; A Feathered River Across the Sky was my primary source of information for our upcoming episode. The amount of care and attention to detail Greenberg gave in writing this work is tangible; I had to set it down on more than one occasion to catch my breath and clear my head. The toughest part of reading the book is realizing we are still doing this today, but our excess is no longer isolated to one charismatic species.
It’s time we wake up.
