The Truth About Female Video Game CharactersNote: Spoilers for Final Fantasy VII and REALLY HEAVY spoilers for Metroid.
So once again your truly had the misfortunate of coming across another annoying Anti-GamerGate vs. GamerGate(AGG/GG) debate and as usual both sides completely missed the point about these characters. More nonsense on whether Samus Aran is 'transgender', and Tifa wears skimpy outfits. . .and. . .and. . .BLAH, BLAH FRICKIN' BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!
. . .
Ug, you know what? I want to ask everyone a simple question that just isn't asked in these debates - "If these female characters were real, including their power sets, would you try to murder/mug/rape one of these people in a dark alley?"
Of course not! You'd be in a world of pain or outright dead and even if you managed to do one those things and escaped relatively unharmed you'd still be screwed because the character's allies would relentlessly hunting you down to either break your body to point you can no longer move or just outright kill you!
The vast majority
