Feminist Frequency a concerned Gamers piont of view

So the concerned gamers back and wanted to say a few words on feminist frequency

Hi all ,

          first Id like to thank Res and z0mbi3 for letting me come back and cast my stone in the feminist frequency pound. After watching Anita Sarkeesian's video  on the Lego Friends for girls I see she not only has issues with computer games and gamers but also toys. This makes me angry as most girls I know when they were younger enjoyed playing with toys for boys to! they didn't care it was anything from footballs to K'nex ,

 they also enjoyed playing with girl stuff to barbies toy pony's and hair brush make up sets. Yet after taking to a few guys I know they would play with cabbage patch dolls, prams did they care? no they were just happy to play with others their own age.

now you could say but its only over the past few years that the separation between girls and boys have happened a key sign of this is the kinder surprise egg blue for boys pink for girls.

my point on this is so what? girls and boys should have the option to  play with what ever they like personally I believe the older toys were best not knowing what you'll get when you crack open the egg biting in to that sweet chocolate made it all the more better , but I'm not going to make girls that want to be girly change. Just like it would be wrong to say boys need to be covered in muscles and carry a axe on fire,  its down to the person how they act and how they are. as far as I'm aware there are still kinder eggs you can get that don't show if there  for girls or boys so why complain? the amount of complaining that's happened that girls and woman are being segregated in to being the weaker sex to be honest I see as stupid. Its down to choice not making a woman worth less than a man

If a child chooses to play with a doll does that child have to be a girl ? No
If a child chooses to play with Lego does that child have to be a boy ? No

so now ill point massive holes in Anita sarkeesian's view , she states that company's like Lego are separating the genders making toys only for girls etc... blah blah well Anita if you Google Lego mini figures girl  you'll find things like ,


and , 

also , 

not really the helpless girl figure Anita states is it ? really Anita do your home work before you go spouting of your feminist crap. If you really feel that girls have no choice but to play with pink toys and fluffy bunny rabbits then you need to open your eyes and take a good look around. Girls have been playing with toys for boys and boys playing with girl toys for years.

So Ill leave it there , once again massive thanks to Res and z0mbi3 for letting me cast my thoughts on this chances are ill be popping in and out of their blog hope you enjoyed!
