We joke in our household that I am traumatized by the extent of the battle sounds I’ve heard over the years, and it's funny, but the truth is that I am deeply disturbed by these games.

C’mon everyone, one woman likes this game and can see beyond the problematic representation of these characters. Why can’t we ignore those aspects and enjoy the complexities the game has to offer?

I’m tired of not seeing faces like mine in my comics. I’m sick of the notion that a black female character is a rare treat, a special occasion.

guns
In the wake of the deaths of six- and seven-year-olds in Newtown, CT, giving my kid a toy gun just doesn't seem right. And I am not at all comfortable with the violence marketed to kids through video games and movies.

At my worst, I beat myself up mentally for hours after the on-screen beating had ended, mourning what was surely a setback for my entire gender.

Military first-person shooters are not exactly known for being a hotbed of radical feminist activity. And this is probably not going to change anytime soon.
