6 Biggest Bitches in Video Games

AlienLion writes:

"There is a magazine called ‘Bitch’, and as you have probably guessed, it’s run by a bunch of feminists who can, well, run an entire fucking magazine about sexism...

Well, Bitch claims that the word “bitch” is an offensive term that is used to describe “any woman who is strong, angry, uncompromising and, often, uninterested in pleasing men.” And that “we use it for the woman who has a better job than a man and doesn’t apologize for it.”

I says: “What a load of dog shit.” Sure, someone has a unique definition of the term (probably), just like someone uses “tool” for every man in skinny jeans (most definitely), but that doesn’t make it the true meaning. Their article even acknowledges that the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word as: “a malicious, spiteful, or domineering woman” (even though it actually says “overbearing”, not “domineering”, and there is a difference) and they go on to complain that someone used it for a different purpose. The fuck?

The point here is that there will be people who will defy sense to find this list offensive, but I will do my part, by stating that I’m not intending any such sexist connotations. I’ll be using that Merriam-Webster definition to list the top bitches in video games, which in my mind, is about as sexist to women as pointing out the bastards would be to men, as a gender.
