First video I don't like the damsel in distress angle in most games. Which is why I hate princess peach with a great passion because she's annoying. I do not agree with the chick talking about princess Zelda being like some pathetic chick. Since Zelda is much stronger than peach and more capable of taking care of herself. Of course Zelda isn't the character you play as the main in the games. Link is the one who is having to learn everything. Zelda already KNOWS everything there is to know. Plus in skyward sword she went on her own separate journey finding out what she needed to know. Ganondorf only goes after Zelda because she always has some kind of power or object he's needing. It's not because she's a female at all, so any claims this chick makes about Zelda is 100% wrong. Plus link is always being knocked out in some way and someone else ends up saving him and wakes him up.
This chick is even more stupid for the fact that she doesn't count DS/3DS as real games. Which show's she doesn't truly give a damn about games. I don't believe she's a true gamer.0

I read about her in a take yesterday - I am not a gamer so I only have a vague idea about what the argument is about but this example is good for my point. The "Everything Is Sexist" idea is so obsessive and overbearing that it cheapens the ideal it is trying to achieve. Most people hear X/Y/Z is sexist, blah blah blah, how many of us will just skip to next article so that means something unjust and unfair may getting through unchallenged because people are bored with the "Everything is Sexist" argument.
To back up my point I recall reading a book about when the Taliban first came to power in Afghanistan, western feminists were going crazy about the burka but the afghan women didn't really care about the burka, what really concerned them was being denied the right to an education but did western feminists listen no it was only the burka they wanted to talk about. The fact that Afghanistan went from one of the most highly educated female populations to zero education for women wasn't considered noteworthy when compared with the damn burka that some of the women wanted to wear anyway,0
