skilodracus asked: Hey Hannah! I'm not sure if you've heard of the video series Tropes vs. Women in Video games but you should check it out. If you've already seen it, can you tell me what your thoughts are? How do you feel when you play games that have those tropes/ sexualized women in them?

lomadia:

It makes some good points - not saying they’re all good points, or that drawing attention to it in this manner is an effective way to reduce/prevent it -  which were further illustrated by the fact that she was forced out of her own home by people who didn’t agree.

Around 90% of female characters I see in games are either sexualized or treated like girls instead of women. Only examples I can think of off the top of my head which don’t correspond to this are:

  • Farah from Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, she was cynical, witty and a total bitch - and displays exceptional courage at the end!
  • Ellie from The Last of Us - proves she’s not just a child and kicks some ass many times, probably one of the best female characters for a long time, mainly down to Ashley Johnson’s acting and the script writing changes they made when working with her.
  • Clem from The Walking Dead - she starts as a child with Lee, but grows into some kind of awesome sauce. Some of the endings of S2 are hilariously badass (one of them involves her aiming a gun at someone and saying ‘you might not be dangerous…but I am.’).
  • Lara Croft - most guys see her as their teenage wet dream, but a lot of women gamers see her as an early source of feminism. The first two games had some fantastic quips and presented independent women better than Destiny’s Child. Once she started becoming the predictable trope, however, she fell from this position.
  • Bayonetta - who uses her own sexuality to make men uncomfortable.
  • Mary and Anne from AC: Black Flag - historical and gaming proof that ladies can kick butt like the rest of them.
  • GLaDOS - can we count a robot who used to be a woman? I don’t see why not! Her psychopathic nature and sarcasm has made her a fabulous villain and sidekick.

Note that almost all of these are from games that came out in the last few years. It’s certainly getting better, but there’s always going to be individuals in companies that want to cater to their mass market - men - and so, unless men start speaking out or boycotting those games, it’s going to continue.

Anonymous asked: I'm re watching Hannah and Kim's outlast play through and the whole time It's just like HeLLA GaY. Like srsly girls.

fooooreeeeallllll their entire outlast playthrough, whistleblower included is pretty much one of my favourite series the yogscast have ever done (partially bc i love hannah and kim partially because i love hannah and kim together and partially because i love outlast itself)

BUT THEY ARE SO GAYthey’re literally just like ‘let’s get married’ ‘why don’t people ship us???’ ‘why does everyone ship me with the guys i do content with >8|’

Maybe it’s because Kim says she’s straight and Hannah’s been dating Lewis for 6 years.

Friends often make sexual jokes with eachother but it’s nothing more than a silly joke.

chill

tbf so many of the ‘straight’ guys in the yogs are shipped together soooooo
