"But why do men care so much about saving the girl? Isn’t it something far greater than just ‘because we get to go on an adventure?’ I think so. It’s because we love women. We adore women. We worship women. Even the gays love women for everything they offer to men! We recognize that there is no greater thing in this world than women! In the face of all of that video game violence towards women, I understand that’s a ham-fisted back-handed compliment but deep down I think it’s true. Men put women in games to be saved because there is literally nothing else worth risking our virtual lives over."

"What annoys me most about people like her is they fail to see the other side of it. Men are depicted as muscle bound morons in a majority of games. Is that something I should be offended by? Should it bother me that the hero protagonist in most video games represents my gender as an uneducated, characterless meat-head that fails to solve issues in any other way but extreme violence? The answer is simply, no, it doesn’t bother me at all. And why? Because it’s fiction, it’s fantasy, it’s not supposed to be taken literally or allegorically like this idiot youtube blogger likes to think it is."
