In the wake of the blatantly misogynistic attack Feminist Frequency has endured over the Tropes vs Women In Video Games video kickstarter, wherein trolls claimed that video games showed significant levels of misandry as well, Twitter launched a counter-offensive. The #misandryinvideogames hashtag has Twitter users describing all the instances of misandry they could find in video games. Some absolutely hilarious stuff in there, like:
#MisandryInVideoGames in tetris a lot of the blocks you destroy look like weiners and balls #MisandryInVideoGames Waluigi creates an unrealistic standard of beauty for men #misandryinvideogames Zelda keeps friend zoning me
Why you always gotta save a princess? Why never a prince?
GTA’s protagonist is always a man with criminal tendencies
#MisandryInVideoGames #MisandryInVideogames Sometimes women neither Tits nor GTFO, even when I ask nicely.
Also: “Mega” Man? Any man who’s stocky is “Mega” now? Stop promoting bulimia in pre-teen boys, Capcom.
AND BY HILARIOUS I MEAN HORRIBLE. HOW HORRIBLE IT MUST BE TO BE A MAN AND PLAY VIDEO GAMES AND SEE ALL THIS MISANDRY.
