Black Sheep To White Knights: Calm Down, Eat A Snickers

STFUandPLAY's Rachael Murdock writes:

"Out of all the derogatory terms used to describe those who are quick to call ‘SEXISM!’ or ‘OBJECTIFICATION!’ or ‘MISOGYNY!’ in defense of how women are portrayed in the video game industry, I only agree with one: the White Knight.

However, unlike the pithy, spineless ‘they still won’t fuck u lol‘s and ‘get the sand out of your mangina, fag‘s, I believe the White Knight argument, at its core, actually has merit: to ‘White Knight’ means to take up a cause or banner on behalf of another group one feels is being exploited or marginalized. The only way one would ever DO such a thing is if one assumes said group as being taken advantage of, or in other words, victimized.

I dunno about any other womenfolk, but I’m no victim. And certainly not of a fucking video game." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Never heard 'get the sand out of your mangina', but I'll have to note that for later use.
