people who aren't nerds

Love, hope, trust," Marin said lightly. "These are strong in you, Tatiana: so strong, your belief in them seems almost foolish. Are they so important?"

Tati squared her frail shoulders and lifted her chin. “They’re everything,” she said, and her voice rang out around Dancing Glade like a clear bell. “That’s what life is all about—love and loyalty, truth and trust. I’m not giving that up.

If a man has to say trust me,” Gogu conveyed, “it’s a sure sign you cannot. Trust him, that is. Trust is a thing you know without words.

"I’ll always be like this, stuck in this beautiful form, and you’ll have to deal with it."

He seemed to sense that she expected a grave response, but for the moment, he was incapable. “I suppose it’s a burden I must bear,” he said, grinning.

i can’t stop thinking about how the only reason that the fire nation didn’t manage to conquer and destroy the world is because katara flipped a shit on her brother for making a sexist comment and stumbled upon aang in the iceberg

The comment above reads:

"I wouldn’t buy it, if the game had a female lead; nothing against women. As a man, I just feel more comfortable playing as a male, just being blunt."

This was made in light of the Assassin’s Creed Unity controversy and it got me angry. And because I am angry, I got to thinking. I generally stay quiet about this kind of thing on Tumblr, but nah. Not this time. It’s going to be short because I’m too riled up to really form coherent thoughts, so I will end this quickly. I promise.
In 2013, a study was conducted by EEDAR, a video game research firm, in which they looked at 669 that had protagonists with discernible genders. Of the 669 games, they found that only 24 of them had female protagonists. That’s just barely 3.5%.
Which leads me to my point.
Women make up about 50% of video game players. Imagine if every single woman that was a fan of gaming refused to play games featuring male protagonists. Statistically speaking, the sales of those games would be cut in half.
Most of us just want to play our games, so we put up with it (and I know I am not speaking only for myself when I say that a lot of those male protagonists really do mean a lot to us), but why is it so difficult for people to grasp that we want to play as women, too? And why is that a bad thing? Lara Croft is one of the most iconic video game characters of all-time and she is a woman.
Let me go ahead and repeat that comment from above:

"I wouldn’t buy it, if the game had a female lead; nothing against women. As a man, I just feel more comfortable playing as a male, just being blunt."

Yeah. Okay. Imagine how women feel having to play as a man 95% of the time.
