Tropes vs Women in Video Games: Women as Background Decoration: Part 1

Hier die neueste Folge von Anita Sarkeesians hervorragender Tropes vs Women-Webserie, hier das Transkript.

In this episode we explore the Women as Background Decoration trope which is the subset of largely insignificant non-playable female characters whose sexuality or victimhood is exploited as a way to infuse edgy, gritty or racy flavoring into game worlds. These sexually objectified female bodies are designed to function as environmental texture while titillating presumed straight male players. Sometimes they're created to be glorified furniture but they are frequently programmed as minimally interactive sex objects to be used and abused.
