But the reality is that most victims are more like DeCoutere: their first instinct is often to write a love letter instead of file a police report.

Strategic Butt Coverings - Tropes vs Women in Video Games

This episode examines the ways in which designers often employ camera angles and clothing choices as tools to deliberately sexualize and objectify female protagonists of third-person games. To illustrate that this is no accident, we contrast the ways in which women’s butts are frequently emphasized with the great lengths often taken to avoid calling attention to the butts of male characters. We then present some examples of female-led third-person games that humanize rather than objectify their protagonists.
