It all started out when an awesome geek dad hacked a computer game so his little girl could play a female character as the “hero”. That’s sweet, right? It’s also not that big a deal. A small child playing Donkey Kong as the character of Pauline hardly overthrows gender norms in the US. It didn’t cost a single man on the planet even one iota of his entrenched privileges.
There are goat blowing hemorrhoid lickers alive on this planet who would wish a little girl dead because she wanted her character to play Donkey Kong as a female. How pitifully inadequate are you as a “man” that you feel threatened by something so non-threatening as a kid playing video games with her dad?
The worst thing about misogynists isn’t simply that they hate women, it’s that they are so fucking stupid.
