Is Red Dead Redemption sexist?

Red Dead Redemption is a sexist video game that beds its “you know you want it” game play, its pervasive “hey what are you, stuck up?” artistic coercion and its penetrating thematic thrusts on the prone backs of women’s equality and respect. And what’s more, it’s a better game for it – once it leaves before morning.

It is simply depicting an era realistically.

For example, you would not call a movie depicting slavery racist.

MasterChief36242817d ago

Some ignorant folks certainly would call a movie depicting slavery as racist.

Pozzle2817d ago

That's true. It's like the censored version of Huckleberry Finn, which removed all instances of the word "n#gger" from the book because some readers might find it racist. Even though the book was written over 100 years ago and is historically accurate.

Because what better way to combat racism than to completely ignore that it existed/exists? >_>

^ Hay, say nigger properly.

What was the author of this article expecting? Did he think John Marston would be going around helping a western womens right movement and fighting for minorities?

I'm glad the films/books/games these types of people make are niche and that hardly anyone experiences them.

Depicting anything before 1960 will mean you will have to be offensive in some way. So no.

Another thought that comes from that; it would be terrible if a black guy used a time machine....for the black guy that is.

I think his opinion is a little more nuanced than that. He did discuss that objection.

FFS, the shit people come up with.

ScentlessApprentice72817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

and vaginized men like Dr. Phil. You see, I threw a man in there. No sexist accusations can legitimately come my way.

19th century America = sexist, racist and whatever else you wanna throw in there.

Get real, people.

Kon2817d ago

21th century America = sexist, racist and whatever else you wanna throw in there.

Incipio2817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

A non-American WOULD say that. Are you one of those cool America-haters that likes to spew crap like that?

Drcherd2817d ago

Its more like:
21th century earth = sexist, racist and whatever you wanna throw in there.

we think a little bit clearly now but ignorance always gets the best of us.

cgmike2817d ago

Um..... 1911 (when the game is set) would be the 20th century.

Incipio2817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

lol I didn't know the game was set in 1911...sure doesn't feel like it. comment remains true, aside from the fact that I should have said early 20th century.

Kon2817d ago

It is funny how people like you try to deny that...

Eiffel2817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

Not so much denial as it is incorrect, society now isn't casually as drastically intolerant compared to the early 20th century.
