Even Feminists Can Have Fun Playing Grand Theft Auto V
Despite its obvious over-the-top violence and highly suggestible (okay, even downright offensive) material, Grand Theft Auto V is fun.
Even those predisposed to hate it have to admit that.
One of the latest BuzzFeed videos shows feminists playing GTAV and although a few have the kind of indignant replies you'd expect, many admit to enjoying their time with the game. In regards to visiting one of the virtual strip clubs, one girl said- "If you were going through your formative years and this was your only experience with women, it would be really damaging and weird."
And yeah, the game lacks a strong female character as well. But aside from that, there are quite a few smiles here, which is nice to see. Besides, it all depends on your definition of "feminist," right? My mother would've called herself one back in the '60s but these days, she spends most of her time just rolling her eyes at the more militant feminists out there.
