Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?

that reminds me of a substitute teacher we had for two periods who was going on about those pyramids being Illuminati or some government conspiracy in math, then leaving us unattended in the classroom while taking 3/4 of the class to the computer lab (my school board doesn’t allow teachers to leave students unattended, which is even worse with gifted students who I’m in a class with for the entire day) while the rest of us sat and played truth or dare and checked out why he was on Kijiji for bass guitars
