When "Why so sexist?" was posed to a panel including Capcom's Seth Killian, the face of the modern Street Fighter community, I couldn't help but take notice. I was excited when Killian opened with a promise to "take that one on the chin." Would he, really? Was he going to take responsibility, even a little bit, for the current status quo?
His first response wasn't only to pass the buck to Japan, but to set the tone for the topic with a joke. "Japan's a very different place," he explained, pausing for the laughter which promptly rose from all corners of the room. (Street Fighter games are primarily made by Capcom in Japan.)
