Well, it's not really that. It's just that that particular paragraph was rather rambly and . . . well, poorly written. Most of the time I can understand someone even when using completely unfamiliar terminology.Endoperez wrote: Heh, seems like my previous post hit the mark here.
I'd say APsychonaut is talking about concepts using terminology that isn't clear to you, using a tone of voice that makes you think you're being threatened. The barbs aren't directed at you, specifically.

Well, of course it's a sign. But, then, men are discriminated against pretty much as often as women, just in completely separate areas. Would that then mean that there is both a patriarchy and a matriarchy in place at the same time?
It doesn't really work like that.Endoperez wrote:It doesn't mean that stereotypes should be replaced, BUT, when you see a game with a damsel in distress character (because there are so many of those), ask for a female protagonist (because there are so few of those).
"The current stereotypes should still exist, but when you see one of them you should whine about it."
