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? 
— Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format. 

Now whats the number for poc? We always remember women but never talk about how poc are usually given shitty stereotypes

*sarcastic voice* cause white women matter. duh.

It is mentally exhausting having a narcissistic parent. My health is shit because of stress and my “mother” (who only likes to use that title when it’s convenient for her immature ass) is not helping. I want to escape and cut off contact but it would mean cutting off contact with my brother, and I refuse to leave him with her.

If you wear a hijab, niqab or even burqa, don’t expect me to take you seriously if you tell me how free and liberated you are.

"I’m going to withhold giving you the respect you deserve because I disagree your choice of dress, most likely because I’m an ethnocentrist, an Islamophobe, and an imperialist."

That translation is on point

When researchers at the University of Toronto and the University of Washington observed young people’s behavior in bars, they found that the man’s aggressiveness didn’t match his level of intoxication. There was no relationship.

Instead, men targeted women who were intoxicated.

Imagine that
