Gender & Sexuality in Fallout 4

Kyle, of The Daily Gazette, writes:
"A few hours into Fallout 4 I was sneakily clearing out a group of raiders in a factory when one of the male raiders, searching for me, said, “Scared, just like a little bitch.” As I was filming a Let’s Play at the time, I said my immediate reaction aloud: “Don’t insult my gender!” This was both a moment of interesting player-character identification (as I am a man) and one of Fallout 4’s more disappointing gendered interactions. In many other ways, like the main story’s maternal focus, Fallout 4 provides an interesting subversion of typical female characters."

Think it's a bit snoobish to say ''To another player, Fallout 4 could be nothing more than a man travelling alone with his dog, shooting raiders, and collecting loot.'' purely because they chose to play as a male

Though in fairness, if you went back over a number of older RPGS, you could find just as many female driven stories. I know it's not really fun/cool to replay old pc games on new system (unless it's via GOG) but the content is there.

And if ''“Scared, just like a little bitch.” is a sexist slur, then calling someone a dick must be to? Either way i find neither offensive, maybe it's just a working class northern England thing though!

Sure you did. That definitely sounds like a natural thing to say.

Yeah, it's bs. Even if it is true, just shows how nuts these f***ing people are by nature, then.
