Title says it all for itself. Let us know your thoughts on this. It's only 3 minutes long, and remember to bring a fork to gouge your eyes out afterwards.

After the video, personally, it was a waste only to make the majority mad. These "feminists" didn't even really "play" the game correctly. They ran around for a minute, then literally went to the strip club/picked up prostitutes directly right after lolly-gagging around making me cringe. If they delved into the actual game more, they'd come to learn that it isn't revolved around making women look bad. The feminist players in this video were having calm fun "killing 3 people in front of a hospital", as one of the players pointed out. Beating up random people, and killing some more. As soon as a pair of breasts enters the screen, or the first sight of a gentleman's club, they're instantly triggered. To me, it feels they feel it's more of a crime to have women make their own choices in sexuality rather than taking other peoples life without consent, especially in video games.

What are your thoughts? Mine is as simple as this: Feminists aren't all bad, but these handfuls are what make it sway away from a good path. A victim card is always played, and I'm getting a bit sick of it.

I feel like nowadays you get bombarded by feminism in everything.


1:47 is absurd. How is EVERY video game ever playing "to a male fantasy"? It's not.

I think men and women are absolutely equal, but people like this do nothing but toss around lame cliches and insults to try and make a point. It's too much.

GTA is pretty overtly offensive. That is by design after all. They have a legitimate gripe. It won't bother anyone involved in making it the series though. The game has sold almost 40 million copies, so I think they are alright.

It's just a game, ladies.
Whoever mistakes this for real life needs a mental health check.
Strippers don't have naturally nice round boobies like that.

I understand your point. Although, they make it clear that they're way more disturbed by seeing breasts in a game more than going and killing 3 people in front of a hospital. They were running around, (not knowing what to even do), and killed some people. They were clearly having a bit of fun doing these murderous acts. As soon as they see a pair of breasts, they're instantly triggered. It's more of a crime to see breasts than to take a life to them.

There are a group of people in any activist cause that will make a big deal out of everything. I'm a feminist, but this stuff comes under the "get over yourself" category for me. There are actual problems in the world for women (and others too, but i'm just speaking on a feminist side) like spousal abuse, forced marriages and other degrading things. Stuff like this just trivialises it all.

It gets old when people tear into everything to find something wrong with it.

For the record GTA V is a good game but the way it treats women is incredibly sceezy and sexist. I think its a pretty egregious example of the sexism that exists in games.

Oh no I agree 100%. Double standards is at play here.

Armchair feminists complaining about a work of fiction. Typical.

This video is worthy of a look as well:

Long of it short: this is a marketing ploy that's working way too well.

I liked it, it was pretty funny but they kept bitching through it all.

Watch the video and the only one I wouldn't mind playing with would be the black girl she seemed to have fun but the rest are what I expect from feminist. If they were really gamers then they would know gta has a lot more than just causing mayhem. They should have actually gotten to know how to play the game in the first place and play it through then they could form a educated opinion.

They should try Saint's Row 3, which objectifies, and degrades both women and men.
True gender equality. It brings a tear to my eye.

I'm tired of this meme.
