Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
like, do eight-year-old boys look at them and go ew, no, girls, gross. i hate girls. we are indoctrinated with misogyny at a young age
what is that even about, really. how do we even get away with beginning to teach people that femininity is shameful before they have learnt to talk
I've been working for a giant toy store chain that I'm not supposed to name online anywhere, and yes, that is exactly what happens.
What's worse, is the parents who reinforce the idea of girl characters being for girls. Usually by mocking the child if he shows an interested in girl character, or telling him, "You can't have that, it's for girls."
