Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly, how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?

PRESIDENT!!!!!!!” i was really ahead of my time

I’ve seen this at least a dozen times before and I love it
I don’t think anyone realizes how freaking much I love this cartoon
Like it was just really weird, and it broke the 4th wall in pretty much every episode. And there’s so much to the characters. I didn’t really like Ed Edd N Eddy when I was little, I’d just watch it waiting for whatever other cartoon to come on, but now as I’ve been rewatching it I am so utterly obsessed with it and I have all these headcanons and emotions.
