Surely this one’s a joke. As if little girls needed more incentive to engage in seriously damaging eating disorders and other body-damaging practices, here comes Sony with a video game featuring the imprisonment of a fat princess. Uh-huh.
By the way, who the fuck cares if the creator was a woman? Hitler was vegetarian, but I wouldn’t necessarily call him compassionate or humane towards all living creatures. Phyllis Schlafly, Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter are all women, but they wouldn’t exactly be what you would call pro-women. Women can be our own worst enemies.
And oh yeah, before I forget: screw the headline on this one, too. “Feminists cry foul over Fat Princess?” As if only “feminists” would have a problem with this misogynistic game? What about mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends, husbands, teachers, and others who care about the well-being of our girls? In a reasonable world, a “feminist” would simply be someone who wants women to receive equal treatment as men, but since we don’t live in a reasonable world, you know that when the media refers to “feminists” they mean the card-carrying cabal from NOW, not ordinary folks like you and me. They couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the concerns of the masses.
Like I said, screw the headline. And while you’re at it, screw Sony. Call a boycott. Whatever it takes to get them to pull this toy off the market and out of our daughters’ and sons’ hands.
One thought on “They’re kidding, right?”
Hey, the lead designer is a girl, so it’s okay. Sony said so.
