My daughter is now figuring out that women in video games don't have a fair shake. She finds few cool games with female protagonists and complains that those in the games are over-sexualized.
I agree with her assessment, but am wondering how does a an 11-year-old perceive these elusive boundaries between legitimate concern over sexism and retro chic.
I fear the humor of the winter women will be reinterpreted as just what society did before women became pinup dolls in video games.
I hope all of us can keep our sense of humor and perspective about these issues.
