Violence against women? No offence but the only violence I really saw in the game against women is when you were playing as Ellie


Marlene just got shot and Tess died off screen

Think about it though, not ONE enemy "raider" like group in the game had women in it fighting on the front lines. There were no women enemies, not even an all women hunter group that had been formed, surely in the world ND created there would of been a group of women out there that have formed there little own "hunter" group. I mean the use of the term "Hunters" in the game don't represent just one group but a term used for a group of savage raiders who have formed together, I mean who knows, what if David's camp saw Joel and Ellie as enemy hunters from another group and thats why they attacked them first instead of waiting to be attacked the other way round

I just find it hard to believe women without kids to look after or a husband would stay back, they would want to go out there and help out to look for supplies so there should of been more women enemies in my opinion

Women want more female characters in games but don't want them to get hurt. thats not equality

I know, it's ridiculous

It's like how they want a female GTA character but if Rockstar did do it, knowing how they do things the character would be so outrageous to fit the games humour that they would then complain.

Nope. That's just preferential treatment which is what feminism is really about in the end.
