i want to see more queer kids in childrens media i want to crush the idea that you have to be of a certain age before you’re allowed to know who you are
i am just so fucking angry being force fed sexualized female video game characters and then slapped on the wrist for complaining because “it’s ironic!!” or “no there’s a twist!!” or “It’s their CHOICE to be that way stop denying agency!!” or the old standard “sex sells!”
i dont!! fucking care!! people are out there looking at this character as jack-off material no matter how many times you call it ironic!! it makes me feel unwanted and uncomfortable no matter how many times you say its for some deeper purpose!!
when i was a little girl and i saw the first female pokemon trainer, it absolutely blew my fucking mind. in my early life i’d been pushed around in and out of circles for things like video games and trading cards because it was “boy stuff.” but no, they were wrong. there was a girl and she looked like your average ten year old kid. i felt like i belonged. now i’m an adult and all i ever see anymore is girls in bikini tops and hot pants. and i wouldnt mind this if it wasnt EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER we got. in those years and years since i was amazed by crystal, what franchises can i depend on diverse portrayals of women?? pokemon, still. valve. not too much else. but hey i can play as 50 different times of girls in skimpy two-pieces.
and this is the new game. irony. bayonetta isnt a fanservice character, it’s IRONIC. julia isnt just fanservice, she’s IRONICALLY a sexy cheerleader who we constantly joke about being “barely legal.” skullgirls isnt fanservice, its IRONIC and EMPOWERING so stop complaining you bitch.
i’m so, so fucking tired.
