Fact 1: what sarkeesian does us extremely common in every other form of art or entertainment, but only gamers find it offensive
Fact 2: there are very few strong female characters in games
I'll never understand why that's controversial to say, but it probably ties into fact 1. Somehow criticizing one part of games is an all out attack on all things games and gamers to some of you.
I'll follow that up by saying that there aren't very many main
black characters in games either aside from the ones that you can make yourself.
The classic comeback for that is always that it doesn't matter if the character is black or white. And I agree, if you're white it doesn't matter at all because it will always be the default.
