Me, I'll focus on the important shit

Apparently, ranting about the "sanctimonious women's studies set" isn't just for Kos anymore. Certain male gamers are shocked -- nay, furious! -- that some women gamers aren't satisfied with some choices that Bethesda made in their designing and marketing of Oblivion. Apparently, most gamer guys love gamer girls only as long as we don't talk about how, you know, we don't want to be marginalized in some way by every fucking game that's ever been made (with the possible exception of Beyond Good & Evil). Then they feel the need to call our concerns "ridiculous" and even attack people personally. But what do I know? I'm too busy being consumed by the continuous "panty/tickle fights" that are all gamer girls engage in for the pleasure of gamer guys. Because we're only "gamers" to get dates.

Do I sound angry? Hostile, perhaps? That's because I am. I am sick of this. Do you hear me, men who feel it's your right to dismiss your female counterparts? I AM SICK OF THIS, AND I AM SICK OF YOU. Check your fucking privilege already. You don't have a problem with the gender representation in games because the gender you identify with is already catered to almost exclusively? Good for you. No one is saying you have to get out there and fight along side those of us who do. But keep your noses out of it if all you're going to do is try to control what other people find problematic. The old adage applies here: if you don't have anything nice to say, then keep your little obnoxious traps shut. Because I, for one, am sick of it.
