Did Jonathan Holmes just say that the DOA games promote beating of women?

I (Robin Ek, TGG) was just informed that it appears as if Jonathan Holmes (writer for Nintendo Force and Destructoid) have stated that the DOA series promotes beating of women. So, here's my take on the matter.

The story is too old to be commented.

Oh my days! That journalist must be constantly triggered by fighting games, but then I don't understand why he just doesn't quit if he can't handle the scripted actions of pixels.

I would also like that add that real-life female fighters can take perfectly care of themselves inside and outside of the ring.

SaveFerris288d ago

Absolutely. There are lots of women who take part in contact sports willingly because they enjoy it, and not just martial arts, but also rugby and rugby league.

destructoid ....a bunch of tragic people trying to relate themslves with gaming ....go close yourselves

Even if he did say it, why should we be triggered?

- Yep, I like American Football more than Rugby though ;)

I honestly like to watch female soccer more than the male version, as they tend to whine less when they get tackled and whatnot.

Jonathan Holmes is a liberal snowflake. Quick Mr. Holmes aka Captain No Manhood call on the developers of DOA to make a safe space in game for these women. The amount of mentally unstable people on earth is hilarious, but also extremely scary at the same time.

@GrimReaperGamer "Jonathan Holmes is a liberal snowflake"

- That is correct. Nevertheless, I had no idea who that guy was at first though. However, the more I read and heard about him, the more I started to realize that his indeed a hardcore liberal snowflake.

"The amount of mentally unstable people on earth is hilarious, but also extremely scary at the same time."

- At first I thought that he was just fooling around, but his pretty dead serious about what he thinks and says...

Simon_the_sorcerer288d ago

Ah, that "Holmes"...Then I get his rather stupid statement (s).

TGG_overlord288d ago

That's the one, yes...I've been listening to some of his other interviews, and his like a more hardcore SJW version of Jack Thompson (imo).

BUHAHA

Don't include women in fighting/shooting games = sexist because women are equal

Put women in = sexist because it promotes domestic violence

Feminists and their enablers don't know what they want.

Atomicjuicer288d ago

They just want to bitch and moan. Best ignored basically.
