    That FemFrequency post honestly made me want to cry. I was furious at the constant accusations of her “entitlement,” as if wanting a little representation in video games is somehow more entitled than people with privilege assuming that all protagonists need to be male. Scoffing that they make all protagonists male because they want their characters to be relatable just makes me sad. And the repetitive assertion that women are a small part of the gaming community and intended demographic is ignorant and infuriating. When will these guys realize that yes, women play video games just as much as men do, but we don’t see them in the community as much because of shit like this?
