"In a lot of ways, Battlefield 5 is going to be a step forwards in its industry. Lootboxes for non-cosmetics have been guaranteed to be a non-issue, paid downloadable content will not be making a return, and the game will recieve free updates. That’s a nice twist. One of multiple promotional banners also pictures a disabled woman serving as a soldier. Now, this is a small feature, of course, but it makes sense that a soldier fighting on the front lines, especially as part of the French resistance in WWII, could become disabled and fight on. There’s no stretch of the imagination there, no matter what some chud on Battlefield’s official forums might tell you.
But there’s misogyny, and then there’s misogyny. I happened across one particular Twitter thread days ago of what I can only describe as an incel pick-up artist abuser fever dream. What follows are some sparse examples of a larger pool of replies to the tweet pictured at the top of this article, which is itself not the only version of the sentiment voiced on this particular website."
NPCs defended having a disabled woman on the front lines in Battlefield 5 but get offended if women in the game can be killed? Bwahahaha! The NPCs hypocritical outrage is what fuels gamers to target female NPCs for amusement.
