A Conversation on Metal Gear Solid V’s Quiet, Strong Female Roles, Empathy and Sexism

Allisa James and Giuseppe Nelva from DualShockers.com have a heart-to-heart discussion on Quiet, the newly introduced mute sniper that will appear in Metal Gear Solid 5, on her role as a strong female lead, on empathy, and the sexism controversy she sparked. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I honesty think she is more bad ass because of her lack of clothes. Who else have you heard have been tortured and jumps back in to battle the second she is released?

Her tattered garments are used to say, "The world tried it's best but I am still standing..." or at least that's what I think.....

Plus I do hope it is revealed that she was student under Sniper Wolf (or at least trained in the same regiment) and then she would move another 5 points up my list.

Totally agree on the clothes, but the sniper wolf part is a bit lopsided.

During the game Sniper Wolf would be four years old. What's possible is the opposite :D

I think pretty much everyone's got strong female characters wrong. The average strong female character nowadays basically front-flips out of explosions weilding dual pistols and shoots everyone and kicks soldiers in the nuts, while never showing any kind of empathy.

But that's not what a strong character is. A strong character is charismatic and inspiring first and foremost. Being good at fighting is secondary

edit: well, now that I think about it, The Boss was a good strong female character

The Boss was a very astounding, strong and well written character, imo.

I honestly don't seem to understand why people are getting so mad about this. Plus, why are you not liking the person being interviewed. I would like to know your thought and opinion on this so I can see what is all the anger about. Thanks.
