Feminist Frequency–Women as Background Decoration

Feminist frequency has a new video out. It’s long but worth a watch.

I do disagree on including Fallout: New Vegas in this list. While there are, in fact, female prostitute NPCs used as set dressing in this game, there are also a buttload of female characters who play an integral role in the story. Additionally, there are male prostitutes used as “set dressing” too–all the prostitutes at Gomorrah (the in-game strip club) are seen as highly exploited and are used more as a way of showing how vile the owners of the casino really are. In addition, some of the female prostitutes get their own stories, quests, and characterization beyond that of the main narrative.

Still. Great video if you’ve got the time.
