Quote: "Earlier this week in my column about reverse sexism in the gaming industry, I defended Hitman: Absolution for its portrayal of sexualised female assassins disguised as nuns, and instructed gamers, specifically the feminists among us, to pick their fights.
This then leads me to an article from yesterday in which Crystal Dynamics executive producer Ron Rosenberg revealed details of an attempted rape scene in their upcoming reboot of the Tomb Raider series, which portrays a ‘more human’ Lara Croft. While I did share some of my thoughts in that article, I have to admit that I expected a far larger backlash than what actually happened.
Basically… nothing happened. At least, in the circles of the internet that I’ve been to ever since. "
