GTA 5 And The “Feminist Agenda”

From eGamer, "Feminism is finding a resurgence in gaming, where gamers, members of the press and academics are giving views and perspectives that contradict the major dominate paradigm. The latest furor labelled as overtly promoting the “feminist agenda”, was a review of GTA V by a female games reviewer, Carolyn Petit, from GameSpot. Rage-fuelled gamers are labelling her exploration of the misogyny present in GTA V as decidedly unprofessional, a propagation of a feminist agenda and an all out attack on GTA V, regardless of the fact that she gave the game a 9 out of 10 rating when all was said and done. Merely bringing up the point of misogyny in GTA V was met with rage, flaming and calls for Petit to be fired from GameSpot for daring to diverge from the status-quo".
