You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
Alright, I wanna talk about these two ladies. One is Jack from Mass Effect and the other is Isabela from Dragon Age. They’re both from Bioware games and they both have difficult pasts with some traumatic-ass experiences that include abandonment, torture, imprisonment, slavery, sexual assault and being fucking sold like they aren’t even human beings.
They also have something else in common. They’re both love interests that the player character can have casual sex with. And while that’s an interesting similarity, it is also what makes them completely fucking different.
Yeah, you can have casual sex with Jack, but given where her head is at when you first meet her, it’s no surprise that she doesn’t fucking talk to you afterwards. You don’t give a shit about her, you’re obviously not listening to her, and that means you don’t respect her. It makes you like everyone else who has literally and figuratively fucked her over without any regard for what she wanted. Jack is an individual with her own needs, and if you ignore those needs you don’t fucking deserve her trust anymore.
Now casual sex with Isabela; that’s a whole other fucking story (pun intended). It comes with passion and playful music. Afterward she says “That was fun” and you say “Yeah totes” and you two resume your friendship. No bullshit. If you fall in love with someone else she genuinely wishes you the best. If you decide you do want to pursue something with her, you better be patient cause that shit’s gonna take some time. Either way, Isabela is in the right place emotionally to have fast, casual sex.
Both of these women have overcome a lot and accomplished even more. They are fighters in every sense of the word. But just because they seem strong doesn’t mean you can treat them however the fuck you want. One woman’s decisions and reasoning don’t make her any better than another woman, they just make her who she is. Every woman is different, and every woman’s sexual needs and choices need to be fucking respected.
bioware’s da3 marketing strategy thus far
it’s very effective
Here is the thing, okay? Coming into a feminist conversation with, “Have you considered that sometimes women acquire free drinks at bars?” is like walking into graduate school during Philosophy finals and saying, “Have you considered that the color blue that I see may not be the color blue that you see?”
Imagine you are the guy who just walked into that Philosophy class and laid that shit down. Imagine the class full of students who have worked very hard and committed themselves and sacrificed to be here, students who have spent several years of their lives learning about this subject. Imagine now their feelings when you go to the head of the classroom with a smirk on your face and demand the professor give you an A for effort. Imagine now that they think you are a douchebag asshole, because they do, and because you are. You are a douchebag asshole because you are obviously so self-centered, arrogant, and completely ignorant of the world around you, that you thought you could walk into a high-level course with no background and no work and say something profoundly simplistic and totally unrelated and also everybody should congratulate you for having done this thing, so brave, so provocative.
You are not asking us a real question. You are simply illustrating, for all to see, your own ignorance. You are saying, “I have not considered the implications of the question I have just asked. I have not taken the time nor effort nor commitment to sit down and ask myself this question. Instead, I have come into your philosophy classroom/office/feminist blog and shat out my question with a smirk, because I believe that my two seconds of thought are worth more than your long-term analysis, because I believe I am worth more.”
And for the record: women getting free drinks at bars enables rape culture.
