i’m like 9000% convinced that housewives in the 40’s survived the nonsense and troubles of homemaking and oppression by just being sloshed while doing chores all day.
and then when the husband came home, the trope where she has his martini ready for him at the door was really just her being like “dude I’ve had like 5, you can have this one.”
a white woman in utah gave birth to and killed seven babies but there are still people convinced that this country is being ruined by black single mothers raising children with government assistance
I just want a home that is mine.
I’m really sick of living with Lalo and Salina.
Most of all though, I want to salvage the actual friendships with them that we have made. Living with them makes me feel bitter towards them because we are just not a good fit for living together, and that just sucks.
Remember how Teen Titans had a lesson about Racism without blatantly bringing Cyborg’s Race into it?
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?
