im gonna fucking puke
"The cast of characters already has several strong female leads. It just wouldn’t make sense for the studio to cast for a Femshep."
Doesn’t fucking stop you from casting a male lead in literally other movie that’s already saturated with other male characters in significant roles, does it.
I KNEW ID FUCKING HATE THIS DAMN MOVIE FUCK
I’m sorry, WHAT?! The majority of people I know that play Mass Effect ARE FEMALES. -_- And I’m not even kidding. This is such bullshit. I don’t care if you’re going to have it be default male Shepard, because honestly that is what I was expect and hoping. But to use GENDER as an excuse for why is such sexist bullshit.
In my opinion Femshep brings more life to the series than the default Male Shepherd. Not only is Jennifer Hale’s delivery of the character more expressive and emotive, but Femshep proves that a woman can man make it in what is traditionally thought of as a man’s world. The fact that a woman is the commander brings more diversity to the already diverse series. If we get a default male Shepherd, he will just be another generic ‘buff hero who will save the day’.
That is true :/ But then, also in my mind, it would just be another reason for people to be like “oh look, a female lead who saves the day. females can make it too.” and just be as sexist.
YOU KNOW WHAT, I SAY MAKE SHEPARD A DAMN GETH. OR JUST HAVE IT BE LEGION. They’re going to fuck it up anyways, like all video game movies. MIGHT AS WELL JUST CHANGE THE MAIN CHARACTER.
If you haven’t watched Shrek: The Musical yet you’re really missing out!
